Meanwhile, Avery struggles to convince her sister Artio that unless they become allies they will fail in their misaligned quest. Cayden, with the aid of Brimstone, struggles to fulfill a destiny prophesied since their original deaths long ago.

Amor Libris: Who is your favorite character from your latest book, and why?
Susan Faw: Helga’s diabolical scheming and unrelenting focus on her own desires make her a very delicious antagonist. Tea party, anyone?
Amor Libris: Are any of the characters and/or experiences in your books based upon yourself or someone you know?
Susan Faw: There is inspiration everywhere, if you only have eyes to see. I think I needed to write this series as I have struggled to come to terms with my mother’s death in 2009. I long to know that she is okay and that there is something beyond the grave, that our souls, the essence of who we are, is not lost forever, on death.
Amor Libris: Can you share with us about what you are working on now or your next project?
Susan Faw: My latest project is an ambitious twelve-book series entitled The Heart Of The Citadel and will center around twenty children, chosen for their magical abilities at birth and given crystal hearts to set them apart. When the female heart bearers are snatched away in the middle of the night, the provinces suspect their closest neighbours of the kidnapping, throwing the world into chaos and civil war. But there is a larger plan afoot. This book will feature dragons and Djinn.
Amor Libris: Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
Susan Faw: Write what you love. There is a market for any kind of literature. Write what you love, and it will reflect in the pages. You will need that passion for the tough times, for even the greatest of books need careful pruning and editing. Do yourself a favour and write your passion. It is the intangible something that creates the magic of an award-winning author.
