UFI welcomes Kiersten Fay Author of Demon Possession. Thanks for Joining us!!
When I’m developing a character, one of the first things I do is search for an image that matches what’s in my head. Some authors chose images of well-known actors, but I prefer anime or drawn figures. This way, I find it’s much easier to imprint my character’s personality onto the image. Below are a few characters from Demon Possession. Search for Kiersten Fay on pinterest.com for more characters.
Sebastian is a demon without a home. He is the captain of Marada, a ship that has carried him and his family throughout space as they make their living as merchants.
Long ago, at the beginning of the Great Demon War, Sebastian's mother betrayed him, An act that nearly cost the lives of Sebastian and his two siblings, Calic, and Sonya. As a result, Sebastian keeps himself emotionally distant from anyone but his last remaining family. He is fiercely protective of them.
Analia is somewhat withdrawn, shy, and self-conscious, but she has an almost childlike excitement for life, and an inner light that people are drawn to. She has lived as a slave since childhood, and cannot remember her people. Her unusual gift and pointed ears are her only clues to her past. And although she had been abused by her captors, Analia proves to be extremely resilient and retains her sweet and caring disposition.
Calic, brother to Sebastian and Sonya, is second in command of Marada. He is a viscous fighter, and often, shamelessly, fights dirty. His talent is in his swordplay and speed, but he often uses his body as a weapon—as well as whatever he can get his hands on.
During the war that destroyed his home planet, Cale was devastated by the betrayal of his mate, Velicia. Demons mate for life, and Calic knows he will never have a second chance at love. He is a brooding alpha male, and a borderline womanizer. As a defense mechanism against most everybody, he uses snarky comments and dark humor. My favorite kind.
Sonya is the youngest of the three demon siblings. Though she often suffocates under her brother’s fierce overprotectiveness, she doesn’t take crap from anyone and can hold her own in a fight. Sonya thrives on being self-reliant. Aboard Marada, Sonya owns and maintains her pub, which she calls The Demon’s Punchbowl.
When she was very young, Sonya witnessed her father’s murder. As a result, she threw herself into learning the art of combat. Her greatest ability is her speed, which has so far remained unmatched.
Kiersten Fay is the author of the steamy paranormal romance series, Shadow Quest, which combines paranormal and sci-fi romance and is loosely based on mythology and lore. Like many authors, she loves creating new worlds with the power of her mind, along with brooding alpha males and strong, yet vulnerable, female leads.
In 2012, she received a nominated for favorite author of 2012 via gravetells.com, and that same year, won Favorite Story of August for Demon Retribution, the third book in her Shadow Quest series. Before becoming an author, Kiersten worked as a graphic designer, and now enjoys creating her own book covers.
Shadow Quest #1
After being enslaved on the spaceship Extarga for most of her life Analia has no memory of her life before, and has lost all knowledge of her people. Her mysterious gift and pointed ears are the only indication that she is different.
Analia is alone, and for all she knows, she's the last of her kind. By chance Analia escapes her captors, and hides herself on the merchant ship Marada, planning to get off at the very next stop.
Unfortunately for her, there is no next stop. The crew is planning a delivery that could take months, and according to a stipulation in the newly signed contract, no one is allowed on or off the ship until the package is delivered.
When Analia is found by a handsome demon, and captain of the Marada, she must adapt to her new role on the ship, and try to control her newly awakened desire for the brutal, and devastatingly erotic demon.
