Jennifer L. Armentrout is here today with an interview courtesy of the Teen Book Scene blog tour for her soon to be released book, Half-Blood. Thank you for being here today, Jennifer! You can follow along with the tour here. Enjoy!
If you made the front page headline of a newspaper, what would it say about you? What would you not want to see make the headline?
I'd like for it to say something like "Local Author Slays Competition and Hits NY Times Best Sellers List" and not "Local Author Slays Someone."
If you had to choose between Narnia and Hogwarts, which would you choose and why?
Hogwarts most def! Not just because I don't know much about Narnia, but who wouldn't want to go to Hogwarts and get sorted? I'd probably end up in Slytherin, though.
If your characters could meet the characters from any other book, which would it be and why?
Hmm. Let's see. If Alex met Bella, she'd probably want to teach her how to, like, really fight. If she met Jace from TMI, she'd probably be like "Hot damn!" She'd probably kick Edward's butt if he was watching her sleep. Don't think Alex would be down for that. If she met Kaylee from Soul Screamers, she'd be fascinated with her screaming thing and would probably hope someone died nearby to hear it. She'd be BFF's foreva with Riley from Demon Trapper's Daughter.
Can you give us a description of HALF-BLOOD in haiku?
Oh Lord. I am terrible at these things. This will be painful. You probably would want to look away.
After three years gone
A girl returns to seize her destiny
Lies, deceits and betrayal
All laid out by Fate
Love and death
are just games to the gods
*cough* *cough* That was bad.
What one song would define the world as you see it?
If I picked Disturbed's "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor", that would make me sound weird, huh? On a good, normal day I'd go with Florence and the Machines "Dog Days are Over."
Thank you for being here today, Jennifer!!
Thanks for having me!
The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden.Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.
