TOUR: Character Chat with Beth Ann Masarik & Review of The World Among Us (Prince of Darkness)

Saturday, February 11, 2012

Thank you, Vanessa, for having me on the blog today!  For those of you who have been following my tour thus far, THANK YOU!  For those of you who are just tuning in for the first time, WELCOME!  Today on Vanessa’s blog, I will be doing something a little bit different.  I am going to be chatting with one of my characters.  It’s actually part of a new blog meme that I created called Character Chat.  I would love it for everyone to participate! You can find out the details of this new meme by clicking here.

Today, I will be chatting with Theia Aysel, who just so happens to be Selene’s mother in The World Among Us. I hope you enjoy this little chat!

I lay in my bed, and was ready to go to sleep, when a bright gold light flashed inside my bedroom.  I had just closed my eyes when it happened, so you can imagine just how startled I was to see a person now standing where the light had been only moments before.  I rubbed my eyes, put my glasses back on, and turned on the light.  There, standing before me, was one of the most beautiful women that I had ever seen; Theia Aysel.  Her golden blond hair, and bright blue eyes gave her away.  Her smile was so bright, that it was almost blinding, and she had a certain glow about her that seemed to make the room even brighter.  She walked over to my bed swiftly, and invited herself to sit down on it, and waited patiently for me to compose myself.

“Good evening, Lady Theia,” I said with a stifled yawn as I looked at my clock stereo; 2AM.  “Or, rather, good morning,” I muttered as I stretched and yawned again.  “What can I help you with?”

“I’m sorry to disrupt your sleep Beth, I know that you’ve been working very hard lately, but, I was wondering when are you going to continue writing our story?” She asked in a voice that was so soft it was like a whisper.  “I am dying to know what happens next.”

I let out another yawn, and sat up completely straight this time.  “I know; you and everyone else is, but, I have a lot on my plate at the moment.  I hope I will be able to start writing fiction again soon.  I miss you guys.”

“We miss you too, Beth,” she said with the saddest of puppy dog eyes.

“Oh, Theia, please don’t look at me like that,” I begged.  “You know how much I miss writing, but, I’ve got wedding planning, and this tour that take priority.”

She sighed, and slumped her shoulders.  “I know, but, I had to try,” she said as she stood up and began to leave.

“Wait!” I called after her.

She turned around and looked at me expectantly.  “Yes?” She asked softly.

“Come around more often.  Damien visits me all the time, and so does DuVessa, and even sometimes Selene and Hades.  It’s nice to hear from my other characters.”
Theia narrowed her eyes at the mention of Hades and DuVessa.  It was obvious to me by her stiffened posture, that she did not like the idea that Hades and DuVessa had been visiting me.  “I shall make sure to visit more often, and I will spread the word to the other gods as well.  I am sorry to have disturbed your sleep.  Sweet dreams,” Theia said and teleported back to Mount Olympus.

Well, there you have it folks!  That was my chat this week with Theia Aysel.  Isn’t she lovely, and so sweet for stopping by, even though it was only for a couple of minutes?

Thank you all for stopping by!  I hope you will join me on tomorrow’s stop on Marla Todd’s blog.  I am her first guest post, and am honored J.  Here is her link: http://westcoastreview.wordpress.com/


Synopsis: In The World Among Us, Hades, the god of the Underworld, plots to take over the world, and remove Gaia, the head Deity, from power. In order to do so, he plots against his own son, Damien, and cons him into killing his soul mate, the beautiful goddess of the moon, Selene.

Hades does so, because Gaia is his natural enemy, and Selene is her favorite grandchild. He thinks that by killing off Gaia’s favorite grandchild, he will weaken her. With Selene out of the way, Hades then moves in on the Creatures of the Night. He wants to kill off their leader, Jason Aysel.

Jason is the go-between person between worlds, and another person that Gaia highly regards. Hades manipulates and cons Jason’s best friend, Leon Greene, into murdering him, by offering him Jason’s position as his reward. Because of these actions, a war is to take place on earth between the gods and other Creatures of the Night.

During this time, Selene is reincarnated, and kept hidden as a secret weapon to win the war against Hades. In order to win the war of wars, the gods and some of the demons will have to fight together, and learn to co-operate with each other.

Will the Titans and Olympians be able to set aside their differences, and take back the world from Hades? Or is the world as we know it, doomed to fall under Dark Shadows, forever?

Review: The World Among us is a unique mixture of Greek mythology with a paranormal twist. If you like gods & goddess, demons, vampires and werewolves then this is your book. Masarik does a wonderful job crafting interesting and dynamic characters that are extremely likeable. The story hooks you right from the get go and I love that it's action packed. No chance for boredom! I really loved Damien and Selene's story and you can't help but feel bad for Damien because he's such a great character. I thought this book was wonderful and although there were a few sections that seemed a little confusing I thoroughly enjoyed reading the rest. I do hope Masarik tells us more about Damien in the next book because it definitely seems like she's building tension. I look forward to reading more from Beth Ann Masarik. I highly recommend this book if you love Greek mythology like me or if you're looking for a interesting paranormal read.
