Jessica Shirvington: Actually, it isn't a trilogy - There will be five books in the series in total. But I can totally understand how you thought it was going to be a trilogy - there were a lot of early descriptions that outlined the series as a trilogy even though it was never intended to be one.
Endless, book 4, will be out in October and book 5 will follow shortly after!
ItBW: Lincoln is an amazing hero and definitely a character worth crushing over. Who is your number one book boy crush?
JS: I'm not really sure. Though I always took a shine to Valek from Maria V. Snyder's Poison Study series.
ItBW: What is the main idea/theme/character/etc. you hope translates perfectly into the Embrace TV series?
JS: Violet. It has to be her because everything is built around her, around her emotions, around the choices she makes and how she deals with the consequences. Phoenix and Lincoln are very important too.
ItBW: Since you are writing books for teens - what were you like as a teenager?
JS: Lost, mostly. And complicated. And probably not too dissimilar to most teens out there now. But I also fell in love when I was 17 and that changed my life and my future. That is part of the reason I love to write YA, why I feel it is so important what happens to our hearts in those precious years.
ItBW: Finish these sentences:
The weirdest thing on my desk is...currently, a My Little Pony figurine. There is always something my daughters leave behind on their visits!
The last dream I remember was...actually not a good dream. I can't remember it perfectly but I know I woke up very unhappy and worried.
We could be best friends if...you could forgive me for being constantly preoccupied with my fictional character's lives.
About Emblaze: Once again Violet Eden faces an impossible choice....and the consequences are unimaginable.
Violet has come to terms with the fact that being part angel, part human, means her life will never be as it was.
Now Violet has something Phoenix - the exiled angel who betrayed her - will do anything for, and she has no intention of letting it fall into his hands. The only problem is that he has something she needs too.
Not afraid to raise the stakes, Phoenix seemingly holds all the power, always one step ahead. And when he puts the final pieces of the prophecy together, it doesn't take him long to realize exactly who he needs in order to open the gates of Hell.
With the help of surprising new allies, ancient prophecies are deciphered, a destination set and, after a shattering confrontation with her father, Violet leaves for the islands of Greece without knowing if she will have a home to return to...
