Blog Tour Interview - The Mark of the Tala by Jeffe Kennedy

The Mark of the Tala
The Twelve Kingdoms Trilogy
Book One
Jeffe Kennedy

Release Date: May 27, 2014

Book Description:
Queen Of The Unknown

The tales tell of three sisters, daughters of the high king. The eldest, a valiant warrior-woman, heir to the kingdom. The youngest, the sweet beauty with her Prince Charming. No one says much about the middle princess, Andromeda. Andi, the other one.

Andi doesn't mind being invisible. She enjoys the company of her horse more than court, and she has a way of blending into the shadows. Until the day she meets a strange man riding, who keeps company with wolves and ravens, who rules a land of shapeshifters and demons. A country she'd thought was no more than legend--until he claims her as its queen.

In a moment everything changes: Her father, the wise king, becomes a warlord, suspicious and strategic. Whispers call her dead mother a traitor and a witch. Andi doesn't know if her own instincts can be trusted, as visions appear to her and her body begins to rebel.

For Andi, the time to learn her true nature has come. . .

Upcoming books in the trilogy are The Tears of the Rose and The Talon of the Hawk.

Character Interview with Andromeda

1. Tell us a little about yourself - your name, where you grew up?

My name is Andromeda, which is a mouthful and awfully dramatic, so everyone calls me Andi.

2. Who was your high school crush?

I didn’t go to high school. My sisters and I had tutors – though I usually skipped out as much as I could get away with, to go riding.

3. What is the most romantic gesture you have ever done for someone?

I don’t know if it counts as romance, but I did agree to marry Rayfe, a man I barely knew. He’s better at the romantic gestures, in truth.

4. What's your ideal Valentine's Day date and/or gift?

Riding on the beach with Rayfe.

5. If you could have just one wish to change something about yourself, what would it be?

I wish I was stronger and smarter.

6. What is the simple most important thing needed for a relationship to last?

Regard for each other’s strengths and happiness.

7. What's the strangest thing that has ever happened to you?

Well, watching my blood change into birds and fly away was the first strangest thing that happened to me.

8. Who should play you in a film?

Mila Kunis probably comes close.

9. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I always knew I’d have to serve the Twelve Kingdoms as a Princess of the Realm, but my sister Ursula is the Heir. I guess I figured I’d be her advisor or something. Of course, that was before I knew about Rayfe and the contract with the Tala.

10. Say the first thing that comes to mind when I say these five words, and be honest:

1. Snow? Lovely – though I have unpleasant associations with it now
2. Peppermint? A rare treat
3. Couple? Rayfe and me
4. Pop? A sharp sound
5. Tokyo? Um, I have no idea! What is it?
