Book Feature + Giveaway: Blood and Lilies by Lyn Croft

Hi guys! Been on a month-long hiatus now. I'm back with a book feature and a giveaway. I have Lyn Croft with me for a short interview and she has an excerpt for you guys. :)

Book Description:

ebook, 205 pages
Published March 1st 2013 by Hellfire Publishing

Once cast from Heaven, Zillah has vowed to destroy God and overtake his kingdoms. But a key is needed to open the gates between the two realms.

The Key to the gate walks the earth in the form of a woman...young, innocent and completely unaware of her importance in the battle between good and evil. Once her blood is shed, Zillah can open the portal to release her father...Lucifer himself.

Cara, a college sophomore, is quickly thrown into a world of supernatural, as well as learning of her true ancestry. Vampires, werewolves and the Nephilim are now a part of her real world. As the beings struggle to protect her, she fights to keep her sanity as her mortal realm is crushed.

Secrets are revealed that could shatter Cara’s new found love, as well as lead to her ultimate death. A family is torn apart as the battle to save the key leads them down a road of betrayal and heartache. Loved ones are lost, lines are crossed, and nothing is as it seems. Lies and truths twist and turn, leaving us with only one question…

Could you sacrifice the one you love to save the world?

Available through Smashwords and Amazon Kindle.
Print Edition coming Summer 2013

First question: How did you develop Cara's character? What inspired you to make her the key between the two worlds?

Cara pretty much became her own person as I wrote the book. I had an idea of who I wanted her to be, but knew she would grow as the series progressed. There are some little quirks she has that have been inspired by me, or people I know. The Del Taco infatuation I am responsible for.

We still see everything happening in the world the humans inhabit. How different would the Halflings’ world be from the world we live in?

It wouldn’t be different at all. They’re educated to fit into our society, but live their day lives as merely a cover for what the truly do. They protect the mortals from what lurks in the shadows and are taught at an early age the skills needed for battle, as well of how to destroy the demons that inhabit our world.

Can you give us a glimpse of what the world could look like if Zillah wins?

Complete chaos would rein! Heaven and hell would clash together in a gruesome battle, leaving our realm annihilated in the process. We would cease to exists, as demons devoured our souls, lapping at the blood of the angels as it floods the land. But, with Zillah in charge, she’d make sure it was done in style.
