My Ilyon Chronicles adventure began when I purchased Resistance during a Kindle $0.99 sale. It was mostly for my brother because he had previously enjoyed the author’s Makilien Trilogy, written under a different pen name. He loved it and even agreed to review The King’s Scrolls if I got a review copy. His enthusiasm got me curious. Now I’m hooked on the Ilyon Chonicles and Jace is one of my favorite characters.
So, without further ado, here’s my interview with Jaye.
If Jace had to choose an alias, what would it be and why?
When I first read this question, I had no idea what Jace would choose for an alias since I never really thought about it. However, I then saw a character on TV that had the name Wolf. Right away, I was like, yeah, I could see Jace using that alias. After all, he has a pet wolf and loves animals, so it just seems to suit him.
If Jace lived in 2015, what would his profession be?
A horse trainer. Definitely. He loves horses and would be the type of person to work for himself on a ranch.
What is Jace’s favorite verse in the King’s Scrolls and why?
I guess that would depend on what point in Jace’s life he’s at. Early on, he doesn’t really have one. Later on? Well, I could see Ps. 34:4 being one of his favorites: I sought the Lord, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears.
That’s all for now. Stay tuned for my review of Half Blood. In the meantime, here’s some more fun info about the books!
About the Book
The gasps and murmuring grew. Though some were hardly more than whispers, clear words reached Jace’s ears—dangerous, monster, animal, soulless. He tried to back away from their accusing eyes, but the collar pulled hard against his throat and held him in place.
For all his years as a slave, Jace has known nothing but the hatred people hold for his mixed blood—one half human, the other half the blood of a race considered monsters. Always, he is the outsider and quickly learns it is better to keep to himself. But, when his volatile ryrik blood leads him to do the unthinkable, he is thrown into a world of violence and bloodshed.
Forced to become a gladiator, Jace finds more and more of his heart dying as his master works to break down his will not to become the monster everyone believes he is. When a stranger interferes with his master’s harsh punishment, Jace’s world is upended yet again. But with it comes the possibility of hope that has long since died. Could the man possibly hold the key to escaping the hopeless darkness that is Jace’s life? Is there such a thing as life beyond the cruelty of slavery?
See where Jace’s story all began . . .
