Shadowed (Fated #3) by Sarah Alderson
Publication date: March 31st 2013.
Fate has won. The realms have been severed...but the fight’s still far from over. It’s been three months since the devastating battle that closed the way through between this world and the demon realms but Evie’s still reeling from all she's lost. When news reaches her that a group of Originals is on the prowl in LA and growing in numbers, Evie must decide whether to join the rogue Hunters in a final battle or fight her fate one last time. The way through might be closed. But that doesn’t mean Evie’s got closure.
Q & A with Cyrus
Jasprit: Hi Cyrus welcome to The Readers Den. For those ladies who haven't had the good fortune to meet you yet. Could you introduce yourself in 5 words?
Cyrus: Hey. Thanks. Sure: Better than Lucas in bed.
Jasprit: Why do you think the ladies find your character so appealing?
Cyrus: What can I say? I'm a charming guy. Or maybe it's the size of my muscles.
Jasprit: For the Lucas fans out there what do you have to offer?
Cyrus: Let's see. A sense of humour for a start. And I'm a way better fighter. Oh, and I don't have a perma-scowl etched on my face.
Jasprit: Describe your dream date.
Cyrus: I'm not sure I'm too fond of the term 'date'. Let's see. I'd probably suggest we skip the dinner and a movie and move straight on to the 'come up to my place for a coffee' part of the evening.
Jasprit: You were born as a Hunter. Despite your mum not wanting you to follow this path, would you have it any other way? Do you think about having a normal life?
Cyrus: No way. I was born to do this. And It's what I do best. OK, second best. Killing unhumans is a lot of fun. I can't really see myself as a lawyer or a banker. I don't really get the whole suit and tie thing. No place to hide a flamethrower.
Jasprit: You're an upbeat kind of guy, always bringing up the mood during a stressful situation. What motivates you in always being such a happy go lucky kind of guy?
Cyrus: Life's short. There are a lot of unhumans out there that need dispatching. You can't take stuff like that too seriously, you got to mix it up a little or you end up like Lucas. All scowl and no fun. The guy looks like he really needs to let loose you know? Take a load off.
Jasprit: What do you like to do in your spare time when you're not chasing down Thirsters and Mixen?
Cyrus: You really need to ask? Just check out the bunk bed in my spare room.
Jasprit: Thank you for stopping by on The Readers Den today Cyrus.
Cyrus: You're welcome. So, hey, what are you doing later?
Having spent most of her life in London, Sarah quit her job in the non profit sector in 2009 and took off on a round the world trip with her husband and princess-obsessed daughter on a mission to find a new place to call home. After several months in India, Singapore, Australia and the US, they settled in Bali where Sarah now spends her days writing by the pool and trying to machete open coconuts without severing a limb. She finished her first novel Hunting Lila just before they left the UK, wrote the sequel, Losing Lila, on the beach in India, and had signed a two book deal with Simon & Schuster by the time they reached Bali. A third book, Fated, about a teenage demon slayer, which was written during their stay in California, was published in January 2012 by Simon Pulse (an imprint of Simon & Schuster). The sequels to Fated are slated for release in November 2012 and March 2013, while two standalone YA thrillers will be out in summer 2013 & summer 2014. She is currently co-writing the Hunting Lila screenplay and working on several other books and screenplays (multi-tasking is one of her favorite things).
