Live Interview with Darynda Jones

Darynda Jones

Darynda JonesHave you had a chance to read the newest Darklight novel, Death, Doom, and Detention, by Darynda Jones? What did you think? Are you just dying to ask her a question? If so, I talked with Darynda about Darklight, her writing and quite a variety of things last night.  If you missed it, never fear.  You can listen to it now!

DJones-Death Doom DetentionIn New York Times bestselling author Darynda Jones’s Death, Doom, and Detention, the normal part of Lorelei MacAlister’s life didn’t just slip away quietly the day Jared Kovach came to town. Nope. The normal part of her life shattered. It exploded. It burst into a gazillion shards of fleeting light.

It went out with a bang.
Goodbye normal.
Hello dark and eerie.

While her best friend, Brooklyn, is focusing all of her energy on helping Lorelei hone her abilities, Lorelei is dealing with the reality that Satan’s second in command has taken up residence inside her body. Oh, and the fact that she has a crush on the Angel of Death. But what a beautiful death it is. If those weren’t bad enough, something sinister has come to town and it wants nothing more than to hear Lorelei’s dying breath as it strangles it out of her. Thank goodness the gang has a supernatural champion. But what happens when the only being who can save them switches sides midstream? How can a group of misfits capture one of the most powerful beings ever created? And will they find out how to bring Jared back to them before it’s too late?

Warning: While we will be focusing on Death, Doom, and Detention, details from the previous stories – Death and the Girl Next Door and – may happen. We’ll try to keep the hardcore spoilers to a minimum, but there are no guarantees.

About Jackie 3282 Articles
I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
