Death's Storm by Lia Davis (A Character Interview and Giveaway)


Interview with Death
Hi Carrie Ann! Thanks so much for having me over today. I brought my hero from Death’s Storm, Jagger, who has graciously agreed to an interview.

Warning: There are spoilers mentioned on the interview below. If you haven’t read Death’s Storm and don’t like spoilers before you read it, please bookmark the interview to read after reading the book. J

Lia: Hi, Jagger. Thanks for coming. How are you?
Jagger: Hello. I’m well.

Lia: Please share with everyone a little about you.
Jagger: *he lifts a brow, but plays along* I’m a death demon in every aspect of the title and an appointed guardian of the Divinities. I can take life, and because my biological mother is a descendant of the Fates, I can give life. I’m loyal to the Goddess Hecate, who adopted my brother and me as children.

Lia: Care to share a little about your childhood?
Jagger: *Crosses his arms over his broad chest*  Nope. Nothing to tell.

Lia: All righty. How about the war? Does the fact that you’re a demon cause any internal conflict?
Jagger: *he laughs* conflict with who? The other demons, maybe. I, for one, relish in the fact that I’m on the side that gets to kill the bastards. It brings me closer to Khan, the vile creature that ordered my village destroyed many centuries ago.  

Lia: *I smile, thinking of how much he and Khloe have in common* How are things with Khloe?
Jagger: *a grin spreads across his sensual lips* She is and will forever be my impulsive elemental witch and shapeshifter.

Lia: How’s she coping with her inner cat?
Jagger: She’s incredibly smart and strong. She’s learning to control the shift and the impulsive nature of hers. Plus Kristoff is helping. Although I would like to find a female shifter to aid in Khloe’s training.

Lia: Jealous?
Jagger: *narrows his eyes* No.

Lia: *I snicker* What’s your favorite color?
Jagger: Teal, the color of Khloe’s eyes

Lia: Boxers or briefs?
Jagger:  neither

Lia: Favorite food?
Jagger: Chocolate poured over Khloe’s body.

Lia: Thanks so much for chatting with me today. It was fun.
Jagger: Not sure about fun, but it was interesting. It was a pleasure to talk with you.

Khloe and Jagger’s story is told in the second book of The Divinities series. Below is the blurb and an excerpt. Thanks for coming by and meeting Jagger.

Death’s Storm, The Divinities, book 2
By Lia Davis

Blurb:

Technical genius and demi-goddess--aka Divinity--Khloe Bradenton relies on no one for help, and she definitely doesn’t need comfort from anyone other than her twin. After her parents died by the demons’ hands over two years ago, she has graciously stepped up to her place in the war between demons and witches. When a creature far more dangerous than the ones responsible for killing her parents claims he is her guardian, she is torn between her desires for the dark predator and the painful loss she has endured at the hands of her enemies.

One of the last death demons still in existence, Jagger has pledged his life to the Goddess Hecate. Charged with the guardianship over the Divinities, he is never to approach them, but to aid them from a distance. When the firestorm, Khloe, sacrifices herself to save her twin and best friend and becomes the prey, he has no choice but to reveal himself to her. He is taken by surprise when the need to claim her as his own emerges. A desire he has never felt before could be more dangerous than the demons out to destroy them.

Excerpt:
Jagger tossed the Amiddian to the side, stepped away from the overturned van, and froze. Khloe stood on the shoulder of the road about fifteen feet ahead, and watched him. Her pink-streaked blond hair framed her oval face, making her look like a pissed off angel. He took a step forward and felt the presence of another demon. He turned to the new energy to see a horned, blue-skinned demon advancing toward Khloe.
Fuck. Where were they coming from?
Letting out a low growl, Jagger materialized in front of the demon and grabbed him by the front of his shirt. Holding the hell-spawn off the ground, Jagger let his fangs drop. “What do you want with her?”
The demon narrowed his eyes and smirked, but said nothing.
Tightening his grip, Jagger gave the demon one more chance. “You can tell me, or I’ll drain the memories from your useless soul.”
The idiot laughed and vanished.
Fuck! No one should have been able to flash from his hold. He surrounded them with a spell for just that reason. There was only one possibility. Khan had a power source just like Jagger suspected.
Fisting his hands to his side, he whirled around to find Khloe gone. Great. Another complication. Scenting the air, he picked up on her chocolate-rose fragrance and rushed into the forest. Several feet into the trees and brush, he found her.
She wasn’t alone. A Regal—the imperial guards of Khan and the most powerful demons in the Underworld—stood over her, with his hand gripping her arm.
Rage ran in Jagger’s veins, fueling his need to protect her and kill for her.
He soon discovered his Khloe was a fireball. She kicked the Regal in the balls, taking the demon to the ground. Turning on her heels, she took off again, but not before he caught the scent of blood.
A deep growl ripped from his throat, and he thrust his hand toward the male struggling to stand, hitting him with a ball of fire. The demon puffed into a black pile of dust.
No one harmed what belonged to him and lived.
