About BloodStone Saga – Book 1: Every Last Kiss
What would you do if you held Fate in your hands
17-year old Macy Lockhart has the weight of the world on her shoulders. For thousands of years, she has been a Keeper in the ancient organization, the Order of the Moirae… and she literally holds fate in her hands. But this is something that she forgets because her memories are wiped clean in every life until it is time for her cycle to start again.
For the last two thousand years, this has never been a problem.
Until now. And now…
Fate, the very thing that Macy was born to keep, is being challenged and she has only one choice: To return to a previous life to fix it; a life where she was Cleopatra’s handmaiden, Charmian. And that’s not all. Unless she interferes with the fabric of time, the very thing she has returned to repair, her soul mate will die leading Marc Antony’s forces against Rome. Can she really stand aside and allow the love of her life to die all over again?
Hasani, thank you so much for taking the time to join me today on Read.Breathe.Relax!! I have just a few questions for you, so let’s just jump into them, shall we?
Of course… thank you for having me here today. Charmian is the one who usually answers questions, but I’ll do my best.
1. Do you remember the first time you met Charmian?
Ah, this one is easy. Charmian grew up in the palace with Queen Cleopatra- I watched as she grew up into a woman. I had just become a member of the King’s Ptolemaic Royal Guard the first time I actually interacted with her. Cleopatra had broken one of her father’s ivory flutes and Charmian took the blame for her. The King was very angry- so much so that he slapped Charmian. I escorted her back to her rooms and I’ll never forget the sad look on her face, but even though she was sad, she still smiled at me. I might have fallen in love with her that very day.
2. Is it hard for you never to have Charmian entirely to yourself?
I own her heart- she gave it to me. And that is enough.
3. What is your favorite memory?
Warriors don’t tend to think of such things so I have never considered this. But my favorite memories would be the ones with Charmian in them…perhaps the day she said she would be my wife. That was a good day. As far as memories that do not concern Charmian… I’m a warrior. Any battle that I have won is a good memory.
4. If you could do anything in the world, what would it be?
I already do it. I protect the life of the woman that I love. Much has changed since the first book of Charmian’s adventures. She has warned me not to spoil it for your readers, but let’s just say that protecting her keeps my hands full.
5. If you had the power to change someone’s fate, would you change it?
No. Something we have learned throughout our adventures is that we can never change what has already happened… it upsets the world’s balance too much and has caused us many troubles and heartaches. No matter how much we might want to change something, we have learned to resist the urge.
Thank you so much for your answers, Hasani!!
Thank you for having me here, Lisa. It’s been a pleasure.
