Worth of a Blog tour: A FICtastic interview.

WorthTour

Yes you read that correctly. This is not a FANtastic interview. Why? Well because the subject of my interview is kind of, well, fictional.

She is a character from the book Worth of a King.

the worth of a king 4 (1).pngBook Description:
Princess Obsidia’s father was killed the night she was born. Since there was no male heir, the crown went to the man who killed him, by Dialcian law. This never bothered her, growing up, and when it comes time for Obsidia to choose her husband, she chooses Prince Delaney, the son of that man, with little hesitation. Only then does her life start crumbling around her.

Adrian expected to live a normal life, taking his father’s place at the print shop when his father retired. But, on his eighteenth birthday, when the princess’ engagement is announced, his world is ripped out from under him when he learns that his life was a ruse, and he is the twin brother to the princess – and expected to take back his father’s throne.

Delaney knows that his country is hovering on the brink of war – and that his father may harbor murderous intentions towards his intended bride due to her Zovordian blood. He wants nothing more than to protect Obsidia and his people, but as merely prince, he has little power against his father.

The ancient war between the Dragons and the Immortal King and Queen is nearing its climax, and the three are already caught in it.

Now on to the interview. Today’s FICtastic Interview is with:

Queen Adelaide, Adrian and Obsidia’s mother, whose husband was killed the night the twins were born. She sent Adrian away for his safety, and has only seen him once since.

C.O: Has it kept you up at night worrying that your twins may meet one day and accidentally fall in love?

 Q. A: No, it has not. What has kept me up is for Obsidia to marry Ossian’s boy. She’s altogether too fond of him. His father killed hers, and she doesn’t care about that at all. 

C.O: I know nothing about your country’s politics, but shouldn’t you have succeeded your Husband? 

 Q. A: No, Dialcian law is ridiculous and will reward any common thief who can kill a king who doesn’t have a male heir. And I admit that if I’d kept my son, then Ossian would have been tried as the criminal he is, but … it was the heat of the moment, I panicked, and she agreed with me that it was the right decision. 

C.O: Why didn’t you just take both babies and run for it? It would have been a simple life but you’d be together?

 Q. A: Obsidia and I pose no threat to Ossian, and he is, furthermore, forbidden to touch us in any way. If I had run, then we would have been found. By staying, no one suspected that I smuggled a son out from under their noses.

C.O: Most mothers put a lot of thought into their baby’s name. What is the meaning behind your kids’ names?

 Q. A: It was a dark night when they were born, and I gave them names accordingly.

C.O: Do you often worry if your children will like each other? If they will like you once they learn the truth?

 Q. A: It was necessary, and whether or not they like me at the end of it is beside the point. As for liking each other … I did worry once, but when I took Obsidia through the village where my son lives, they had such an obvious connection … they couldn’t dislike each other. I do regret that their separation, but I know, when the time comes for Adrian to return to us, he will defend his sister to his last breath. 

C.O: What is your darkest fear?

 Q. A: For Adrian to fail when he comes of age.

C.O:What is your greatest wish?

 Q. A: That I could have my husband back. But Edson is gone, and I live in a nightmare.

    Nice interview. Adelaide is a complex, tragic character and your questions give a lot of insight into her.

    Yes I am also annoyed by the separate the two new troupe. But after hearing the Queen’s side I don’t mind this one as much.

    Poor Adelaide. I found it pretty easy to be annoyed with her in the book, but this interview does a great job of making me feel sorry for her instead.
