Please welcome Stacey Kennedy. She’s the USA Today bestselling author of the CLUB SIN series. Growing up, Stacey’s mind wandered the path less traveled and that path most often led to love. She has always broken rules and she continues to feed off emotion – staying true to her heart. Those traits are now the bones of her stories. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, who puts any of the heroes in her books to shame, and their two young children. If she’s not on mom duty or plugging away at a new story, you’ll find Stacey camping in the summer, hibernating in the winter and obsessing over Penny Dreadful, Game of Thrones and Outlander.
Today she’s giving us a look at the Character Guide to the Magical World of the Magic & Mayhem Series.
Take it away, Stacey!
Thank you so much for letting me stop by today. The Magic & Mayhem series is a BIG world with a BIG cast of characters. It’s the one reason I love writing in this world. What can I say? I’m a huge fan of supernaturals, so when I got the chance to create a world that includes just about every type of supernatural out there I just went for it!
So, here we go – here’s a quick run down of who is who in my paranormal world!
The Council of the Otherworld: These are the big guys in the Otherworld. They rule all supernaturals that live in the magical realm and they also ensure that humans on Earth remain safe from any rouge supernaturals threatening to harm them. They are the strongest supernatural who represent their race.
Talon: Master of Guardians
Zia: Mistress of Witches
Zade: Master of Vampires
Holten: Master of Werewolves
The Council’s Guard: These characters are the main characters within the Magic and Mayhem series. Nexi and Kyden are the lead characters that we follow throughout the series. Everyone else is a close friend that helps our characters on their dangerous journey.
Kyden: Elite Guardian
Nexi: guardian; Spirit Witch
Haven: Nexi’s soul-sister; Earth Witch
Alazar: werewolf tracker
Myles: detective with the Salt Lake City police department; vampire
Briar: Fire Witch
Earthworld Supernaturals: Most supernaturals live on Earth and they have their own hierarchy there. The Otherworld typically stays out of supernatural business on Earth, unless a human life is taken. When that happens, the Council’s Guard will hunt and destroy any threat. But supernaturals on Earth tend to handle their own business within their race.
Mistress Vampires: Rulers over Vampires on Earth
Mistress Thalia: Leader of the Midwest Territory; vampire
Mistress Ellery: Leader of the Southwest Territory; vampire
Maddox: second in command in the Midwest Territory
United States Werewolf Packs
Valor: Patriarch of the Wolves; ruler over all of the Alphas in the United States
Briggs: Beta to the Patriarch of Wolves
Underworld Supernaturals – Of course, these are the bad guys! The supernaturals that cause all the trouble in the Magic & Mayhem series, and they are the supernaturals that create the most mayhem for Nexi and Kyden.
Magnus: Lord of the Underworld—leader of the dark-realm, home to black-magic witches, warlocks, and demons
Astoria: black-magic witch
As you can tell, the Magic & Mayhem series has a very big cast of characters, which involves every type of supernatural out there! It’s a fun world to write in because of that fact, but I still have yet to decide what kind of supernatural I like best. The witches are fun because of their magical powers. The guardians are just sexy with their kilts and swords. And the werewolves are sure something special, too.
Now you tell me: What is your favorite supernatural?
Nexi Jones has lost her family, she’s been stripped of her guardian duties, and she’s still learning the ins and outs of white magic. At least she has Kyden, the smoldering hot elite guardian who’s been there for her every step of the way. But just as Nexi completes her training, tragedy strikes the Otherworld when a fellow guardian is murdered by a group of rogue vampires. Ready or not, she and Kyden trek into the Earthworld to hunt down a killer—and Nexi alone will be put to the ultimate test.
Although Kyden knows that Nexi must fight her own battles, his guardian instincts are raging as he struggles to keep her close. The ruthlessness of these vampires is like nothing he’s ever seen. And at their helm is the Black Witch Astoria, a demon with one burning desire: to shed Nexi’s blood in the name of vengeance. What troubles Kyden even more, though, is the warlock who covets Nexi’s heart. Let the devil do his worst . . . all Kyden can do is love and protect Nexi until his last breath.
