Welcome to my stop on the Interred Blog Tour hosted by YA Bound! To check out the rest of the tour, click the banner above :)
Interred (Chronicles of the Interred #1) Goodreads
Author: Marilyn Almodóvar
Time has never been an issue for Baxter Jacobs, but then she never knew she had the ability to Bend it.
As her sixteenth birthday approaches, Baxter inherits a pendant that will change her life. Connected to the pendant is a dark and mysterious young man named Declan Ashdown. Trapped in a Time loop for the past 122 years, Declan needs Baxter’s help to escape. The only problem is, she has no idea how to do it.
To acquire the power she needs to free him, she’ll become one of the Interred, those whose Magical abilities emerge as they come of age. When she does, she’ll discover that Declan isn’t the only one interested in the fact that she’s a Time Bender.
As the Interment arrives, Baxter knows this will be no Sweet Sixteen. A vengeful relative and ruthless Council are determined to control her. Declan’s powerful and charming descendant, Jack Ashdown, claims he can save her. She’ll soon have to decide who she can trust, and how to master her new abilities before Time runs out.
Published 22 January 2013.
Hello Declan, what is your birth name?
Declan Ezekiel Ashdown.
Wow, that's a complex one! I bet I will have trouble spelling your middle name... So, how do you dress most of the time?
Since I'm trapped in a Time loop, I'm still wearing the same clothes I was wearing 122 years ago. I look like a Victorian…white shirt, black vest, black cravat, black coat, and grey trousers.
And that sounds hot. *grins* Do you happen to wear any jewellery?
Oh, might have forgotten! Tell me, what is something you hated, but had to learn?
Polite conversation. I'm not one for chit-chat, if you couldn't tell.
[Shoots him a sour look] As a matter of fact, I can tell... [Perks up] What do you feel most strongly about?
Returning to my own timeline.
And, what is your worst childhood memory?
The constant beatings with a cane, courtesy of my father.
Oh, now I get why you have problems with polite conversation!
Thank you for entertaining us here at Bookcase to Heaven™, Declan! It must have been hard for you to agree to this interview :)
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Marilyn Almodóvar is the author of a series of YA paranormal novels. Born in Ft. Huachuca, Arizona, Lyn is a lover of words whose reading tastes range from Victorian novels to the books of Stephen King. Her favorite past-times have always been reading and writing, two activities that let her escape to other worlds.
It was this love that propelled her to choose Theater and French as majors in University, with a minor in English Victorian Literature. Lyn lived for almost a decade in England followed by three years in France before returning home to the States. A self-confessed citizen of the world, she is fluent in English, French and Spanish, with basic knowledge of the Italian language.
Lyn could happily exist breathing the clean air of Narnia, trapped in a cupboard under the stairs with Harry, fighting alongside Captain Jack Sparrow, doing an internship in Torchwood, or traveling around time and space with the Doctor…as long as she can have Mr. Spock, Captain Kirk and Captain Mal as companions.
Lyn currently lives in Central Florida with her French husband, English-born eldest son, and French-born youngest son. Her debut YA Novel, Interred, will be published by Iambe books on 01/22/2013.
