Divine Touch by Kristy Denice Bock @goddessfish @kdbock




CHARARCTER INTERVIEW 
with Edereu, Villain in Divine Touch

Welcome!!  It's a pleasure to have you here.   Where do you dream of traveling to and why?
I have no dreams of travel. I am a Goddess, and as such the world comes to me when I command it. Though I do love a fresh warm croissant from Paris. There simply is nothing else like it on your puny little planet. Trust that after I take over this miserable plane, they will be one comfort the parasites known as humanity will thank me for. Warm, flakey croissants from Paris.  I will not share them of course, but they will in fact, still exist.

Who is your favorite author?
Certainly not the one that wrote the book I’m in. She simply got it all wrong. Noxia as the Supreme ruler of all the Goddesses? That droll blonde couldn’t rule her way out of a paper bag without the help of her Divine Ones Cheer Squad. It should have been me, who was created as the ruler. I am Edereu, Goddess of Death and Judgment. Every single life, every soul, finds its way into my realm.

What was the scariest moment of your life?
Nothing scares me, did you not just read that I am the Goddess of Death? I have no fears only anger and annoyance that I am forced to dwell underground with the sniveling souls of the dead. What a wretched existence I have been assigned by Noxia. Noxia, whose own daughter actually believes she’s a witch. Daughter of a Goddess and she’s foolish enough to think she has magical powers. This is the gene pool of your supreme ruler. I’m just saying.

What are you passionate about these days?
I live for one thing, and one thing alone. I will knock Noxia and her gal pals off their high horses and become queen of this world. My plans are already in place. If she thinks her smart-alecky daughter and her wolf can stop me, Noxia is in for the rudest awakening of her life. I have everything planned down to the moment. I’m beyond ready to assume the throne. Goddess Edereu, Queen of the Divine Ones.

What do you do to unwind and relax?
As I have been remanded to the underworld, I spend my days plotting how to take over the universe. If I get bored, I will create a new life to feast upon humans. My most recent creation has talons dipped in acid and their blood is the most potent poison known to man. I’m rather fond of how effective they are against killing the blood bags that get to live among the sunshine.

If I came to visit early in the morning would you impress me as being more like a chirpy bird or a grumpy bear?
If you came to visit me while the sun was still up, I would feed you to my newest creations for being so rude as to assume you could dare visit me because you felt like it. However, I am not without some mercy, I would let you smell the goodness of my croissant from Paris before I let them feast on your dying body.

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
People would be surprised to know that I have a strong drive. I am an incredibly ambitious woman. There are no boundaries that I would not cross in order to get what I want. I certainly will not allow my plans to be derailed by a flighty female afraid of heights and her emo soulless werewolf boyfriend. Those two aren’t worth the time I’m investing in their demises.

Do you have a favorite quote, quip, or saying? What is it?

One day, I will rule it all.





Divine Touch
by Kristy Denice Bock


GENRE: Fantasy/Paranormal Romance


BLURB:

Finding a naked man where Werewolf bones once were should have let Kate know she was in for an unusual day! Nothing could have prepared her for the discovery that her mother is a Goddess, and that nothing in her life would ever be the same. Zane DeSeville spent five centuries trapped in a prison of his own body only to be awakened by the image of the woman who caused his entrapment. After Kate discovers that she’s the daughter of a Goddess, another bombshell is dropped in her lap. She has to pass three Trials of Humanity, or she’ll be imprisoned as Zane had been, and Zane would be her judge and jury!



EXCERPT

Zane found himself liking the strange young man. His appearance was something Zane had never come across before, but that didn't seem to detract from his character, rather it enhanced it.

“Okay look, I'm just going to get this over with,” Cole said. Without a further word on the subject, Cole's head leaned back as his body changed to a form Zane was all too familiar with.

Zane tried to maintain rigid control on the beast within him. The desire to prove alpha status could not be contained. His fingers shook, the need to dominate drove him. The idea of harming the young wolf made him fight hard to control himself.

It was a heedless battle, but the beast would not be contained. The harder he fought, the more the beast raged. He felt the change come upon him before he could control it. His senses heightened, he could smell the other wolf’s presence. With his last coherent ability, he projected his thoughts out, telling the young wolf to run. The beast was free.

The young wolf cocked its head to the side, looking at the larger version. It dropped down on its hindquarters, extending its front paws forward with its head lowered. The beast recognized a sign of submission. The beast stood over the young wolf and growled. It remained unsatisfied with an unearned submission. Its jaws snapped at the young wolf’s ear, causing the smaller creature to jump back in surprise.

The beast goaded the wolf until it openly attacked. Their sounds of aggression filled the room as they wrestled each other to the ground. Though the younger wolf was smaller, it made up for its lack of size by speed and agility. When its teeth sank into the foreleg of the older wolf the battle turned. It went from a token fight to a fierce battle of wills. The younger wolf continued to use its smaller statute to its advantage.

Each time the beast would force the wolf down, it would find a way to escape the hold. With each passing moment a respect was gained. Respect, however, was not something that was worth losing over. The beast howled in delight as his teeth bit into the neck of the wolf, pinning it to the ground.

“When your pissing contest is over, I was promised ice cream, a movie, and Holland.” The beast recognized the scent of its mate. It let go of the wolf and backed away.

A scream caused all heads to turn in the direction of the door Kate had just entered. The beast watched in disgust as the pale creature crumpled to the ground.

Good morning MomJane :) thank you for your words! I always loved the alpha status and struggles that went with it. Edereu is my favorite villain.

Kristy Bock said...

Hi Helen, I've always been a huge fan of Mythology both Greek and Roman, but always felt they were sexist and rather one sided. So I created six Goddesses who run things instead.
