Displaying The Shadow Soul.jpgGAME OF THRONES meets GRACELING in a new fantasy series by bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis.

Jinji has been haunted by the death of her twin brother for ten years. Now, on the dawn of her joining, the nightmare that claimed him has returned for her.

Prince Whylrhen is determined to prevent the past from repeating itself. His kingdom is expecting a new heir, and he will stop at nothing to keep the child safe.

Though they've never met, the two share a deep secret—magic. Jinji can weave the elements to create master illusions and Whylrhen can pull burning flames into his flesh. But neither of them knows what they are truly capable of until a chance encounter brings them together. For their story has played out before, in a long forgotten time—an age of myth that is about to be reborn…

Character Interview – Rhen
Please welcome Prince Whylrhen, the male protagonist of The Shadow Soul who has

come all the way from his fantastical world to speak with us today!


Me: Thank you so much for stopping by. I’m honored to have royalty in my studio.
[He leans back casually, his large muscular frame making the chair seem small and

fragile by comparison. Waving his hand through the air, he dismisses the nod to his

stature. I can’t help but notice that his eyes don’t seem nearly as relaxed as he wants

them to.]


Whylrhen: Call me Rhen.
Okay, Rhen, what—

[He leans forward suddenly. A wide flirtatious smile spreads across his face.]


So you met Jin yesterday. Strange lad, don’t you think?
Yes…

[I pause, knowing he is fishing for information. But yesterday, Jinji confessed that Rhen

does not know her true gender so I remain silent. He tilts his head, intrigued by my

silence. I know I must continue. Damn it if that smile does not make me want to spill…I

swallow deeply.]

Yes, he seemed reserved, somewhat quiet and to himself.
[Rhen leans back, not quite satisfied with my response I can tell. The answer is circling

his thoughts, and I watch him digest it, pulling it apart. His eyes meet mine, and in an

instant I know he knows I’m hiding something. A smirk dances across his lip. A switch

flicks and a mask seems to fall over his features, softening them.]

So, what would you like to know? I’m an open book. Royal life? Boring. Favorite hobby?

Riding my horse. Do I sleep in the nude? Of course.
[I spit out the water I just swallowed. His green eyes seem to twinkle as I fight to regain

control of my interview.]

I hear your eldest brother just had a child, a son.


Yes. I’m an uncle.
[Genuine happiness lights his face. The first true emotion I feel I’ve witness from this

prince.]

What is his name?


In my homeland, a prince is given no title until his Naming Ceremony. So we will just

have to wait and see.
[As he talks, his eyes narrow. Worry leaks into his expression.]

I should really be going.

[He stands, kisses the top of my hand and makes a swift exit. I forget to say thank you or

goodbye, and instead fall back against my chair, exhausted from the brief conversation.]



About the Author
Displaying kaitlyn davis.JPGI've always been a writer. I grew up duct taping my novels together, started writing complete manuscripts in high school and studied creative writing at Johns Hopkins University. Upon graduating, I decided it was finally time to actually give my dream career a chance. So, of course, I started writing a young adult paranormal romance series -- and no, I'm not jumping on the bandwagon. I've been a true paranormal supporter for my entire life! I blame my obsession almost completely on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, my all-time favorite television show. And, before you ask: Yes, I own every season... even the post WB ones! I especially challenge anyone to watch the first three seasons and not fall in love with Angel, securing a lifelong love of vampires! Other culprits of my paranormal obsession are some of my favorite authors: JK Rowling, Raymond Feist, Meg Cabot, Richelle Mead, Lynne Ewing and Tamora Pierce.
