Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Forgotten by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast. This tour is being hosted by Fantastic Flying Book Club.
Please note that this is a book three and there may be spoilers from the previous books in the synopsis below.
Forgotten (House of Night Other World #3)
Publisher: Blackstone Publishing
Release Date: October 29th 2019
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Before he was freed by Neferet, Kalona was imprisoned within the earth for centuries because of the Darkness in his heart. But what happened to the Other World’s Kalona? It’s as though he’s been forgotten, or maybe he never existed at all …
In the present, Other Neferet may have left her House of Night, but she has far from given up her goal of immortality and world domination. As she operates in secret to gain access to Old Magick, the new High Priestess, Anastasia Langford, works toward peace and acceptance for the vampyres of the Other World. But just as Other Kevin’s broken heart will take time to heal, peace in that world will also take time and work—and not all of the Other World vampyres want peace. After all, why should they return to being shunned by humans, especially when they’ve had a taste of how it feels to be in power?
Meanwhile, Zoey is desperate to help rid the Other World of Neferet once and for all, and not knowing what’s going on over there is eating away at her. But, as the Nerd Herd warns, it’s far too dangerous to call on Old Magick time and again. As a distraction, she throws herself into her work and attempts to bring the humans and vampyres of Tulsa closer together with the first human-vampyre swim meet in history! It’s too bad that something always seems to go wrong whenever the stakes are high.
What happens when worlds clash and powers that should be left alone are awakened? Can Other Kevin and his world heal from the wounds Neferet continues to inflict? Can Old Magick ever truly be harnessed and used for good? Or will Darkness extinguish Light and leave our heroes broken, hopeless, and as forgotten as Kalona of the Silver Wings? Don’t miss this second to last volume in the House of Night Other World saga!
From The Authors (Q&A Guest Post):
Instead of picking one topic, the authors decided to give short answers for each one.
Why did you choose to add goddesses and magic to a vampire story?
PC: Actually, I’ve never thought of the HoN as a vampyre story. It’s a story about teenagers dealing with everyday issues while they have to save the world. They just happen to be vampyres. The Goddess and the magick and the kids came first – the vamps were the addition.
Top Ten favorite vampire books and/or series?
PC: There won’t be ten. I’m not obsessed with vampires – never have been. But I do absolutely love Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles, Robin McKinley’s SUNSHINE, and Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s Count Saint-Germain.
KC: The only other vampire books I’ve read are Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series, which I highly recommend.
A deleted scene to share (without spoilers)?
PC: My deleted scenes are deleted for a reason. I’d never let anyone but my editor/Kristin read them. Ack!
Who is your favorite and least favorite character and why?
PC: Grandma Redbird is a fav because she’s a wonderful human being. In either world Loren Blake is a vain jerk and I’m not fond of him at all.
KC: Aphrodite is definitely one of my favorite characters. I agree with PC about Loren. He is terrible.
A little about writing as a mother daughter duo?
PC: PC: I do all the writing in the HoN. Kristin has always been my frontline editor. When we do write together on other series we divide up the characters and whichever character is in the forefront of the chapter decides which of us writes the chapter.
Favorite places in Oklahoma?
PC: I put them all in the House of Night series – original and Other World. Dive into the series and you’ll fall in love with Tulsa and Oklahoma!
