Blog Tour: The Chronicles of Fire and Ice by L.L. Hunter!

Hey guys! I am so proud to be on L.L. Hunter's blog tour for her new book The Chronicles of Fire and Ice! I have below an interview which I did with the lovely author! Enjoy!

To start us off is there anything you'd love to tell us about yourself?

I am 24, I live in Australia with my family, and I love performing arts as well as writing.

How did you come up with the idea to write The Chronicles of Fire and Ice?

The idea came to me in a dream originally, the prologue, and then I began playing around with names, I made Dyston’s up, and went from there.

How long did it take you to write The Chronicles of Fire and Ice?

It took me about 5 months from conception to editing.

What has been your favourite thing about writing The Chronicles of Fire and Ice?

Probably letting my imagination run wild, and knowing there was no limits on what I could make my characters do. And writing Lakyn’s backstory, and all the dream sequences.

Who designed your beautiful cover?

Regina Wamba and the team at Mae I Design and Photography designed my amazing cover!

Is there any particular author/book that helped influence you into being an author?
Probably Phillip Pullman and his book, “The Subtle Knife.” It was the first fantasy novel I read as a teenager and it opened a whole other gateway into a different world (just like in the book lol)

What book are you currently writing and could you maybe tell us a little bit about that book please!

I am working on book 2 in The Legend of the Archangel series, and without giving away spoilers, the storyline of The Chronicles of Blood and Stone follows Jacob as he begins to deal with the death of (spoiler). Death makes you do crazy things.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in writing?

Yes, all the different tenses, past, present, etc, I didn’t know there were so many! But luckily I have a friend helping me with those!

Is there anything you'd like to say to your fans/readers?

Yes, don’t let anyone discourage you from following your dreams, just do what makes you happy.
Quickfire Round!

Is love stronger than race?

The world is changeing as we know it, the human race is dwindling, but so are the angels. In order to preserve their bloodlines they have bred with humans, creating a new race called Nephilim. But there is one race that is more endangered than humans or Seraphim, Archangels.
As most people believe the Archangels have become extinct, rumours surface of a Legend; that a baby was born out of flame, the offspring of an archangel.

Dyston Blackbell is tasked to find and protect this child. He sends her strange dreams in hope that she will find him. When he discovers that she has enrolled at his family’s angel academy in Melbourne, he will do anything to protect Scarlett. But when he finds himself falling for her the Heavenly realm rejects him.

But 21-year-old Scarlett Porter realises that being half Archangel has some advantages. She has developed a unique trait, one that marks her as an Archangel. Will she keep it to herself or use it to fight back?

When an old enemy resurfaces, The Lucifites, Scarlett discovers that Dyston’s older brother Lakyn is at the helm of their sinister plans; to destroy the Nephilim race or use Scarlett for their own selfish purposes when they find out who she really is.

And when Lakyn discovers that Scarlett had only seduced him to rescue Dyston from his prison in the Realm of Light, it sends him on a journey of self-discovery and destruction. One that sees him venturing farther off course than his father would like. Will he choose a new life of love or his old life of darkness?

Author bio:

I am an Australian author who began writing when I was fifteen or sixteen, originally song lyrics, but then moved onto fanfiction when I was nineteen. Having published over 20 stories online. One of which was nominated for an award. I have also written, directed and starred in two original plays entitled, “No Frills Airlines: Flight 123,” and the sequel, “No frills Airlines: Come Fly with Us.” The latter of which was a musical.

I have studied everything from veterinary nursing, forensic science and dramatic arts but have always known my true calling was writing.
My hobbies include, writing my books and scripts, reading, singing, acting, directing, watching movies, 50’s fashion and playing with my animals. When I am not writing I can be found reading somewhere comfortable with one or both of my ‘furbabies’.
