Please welcome today's paranormal guest author Priya Kanaparti! Priya is the author of Dracian Legacy.
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Priya: I started writing Feb 2012.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Priya: I've always been a paranormal fanatic - Supernatural t.v. show being one of my all time favorite! But at the same time I was draw to the idea of being able to show a paranormal story through words.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Priya: Invisibility? lol
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Priya: The most important reason they might enjoy the story is because of the concept of Kshadrias and why they have been at war for so long. All of the truths don't come out in Book 1, but if the readers can hang tight, the ending will leave you breathless! Book 1 is about building up emotions (Romantic or otherwise) and making Ren stronger--or in cases weaker-- for the impeding war a head.
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Priya: I get asked this question soo often, you'd think that I've already picked my dream cast. But... Disappointingly I haven't. :/. However, I could say that I've imagined Axel to look like a Younger Jensen Ackles and Ren--a younger version of Jessica Alba.
Dracian Legacy (Dracian #1) by Priya Kanaparti.
At seventeen, Ren Pernell knows the meaning of tragedy.
But then, a year after losing her parents, Axel Knight walks through the door and changes everything. Strange creatures start to appear, her best friend suddenly finds her irresistible, and an undeniable, unexplainable bond with Axel threatens to drive her insane. She knows he’s the key. There’s something he’s not sharing, and she’s determined to find out.
Demanding answers, she finally learns the truth: everything she ever believed is an illusion. Caught in a centuries-old blood feud between races she never knew existed, Ren discovers her true destiny. She’s the chosen one, the Echo, preordained to end the bloodshed.
There’s just one catch--in order to save those she loves and a homeland she’s never seen, she’ll have to die.
With the clock running out, she’ll have to navigate a new world of betrayal, lies and deceit. If she can forgive, finding love even in the darkest places, she just might be able to escape the prophecy. But how much is she willing to sacrifice for a cause she didn’t know she was part of? And what will it take for her to be free?
