Blood Moon by Holly Hunt: Character Interview and excerpt: Bewitching Tour Stop


Character Interview with Olivia, heroine of Blood Moon

Tell us about your family.

My great-aunt took me in after my mother Marie killed herself. Lucia is a bitch, truth be told. She treated me like a slave, making me clean and wash her house every day, until I finally became a werewolf. But, even then, I was her slave, a slave to my blood.

My half-brother, Charlie, was born of Angela, out of wedlock. My father, Wilhelm, cheated on my mother when I was three. Charlie is the result.

What are you passionate about these days?

The human race is in trouble. I am the only one that can save it. The insane witch-goddess Alsvinth can control all werewolves. The only thing I'm passionate about is keeping myself and Charlie out of her way, and safe from the humans.


Who should play you in a film? 

Chloe Moretz. After the way she played a vampire in Let Me In, I think she might actually get close to playing me properly… which is more than other actresses could say…


Morning Person? Or Night Person? How do you know?

I'm a werewolf. Do you really need to ask?

What would we find under your bed?

Probably a lot of fur, some bones and some other stuff you don't want identified. Trust me.


What one word best describes you?


What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

The Ontario Wolf, who turned me, eventually became my girlfriend of five years. I didn't know it at first, but hey, what can you do.

You just won a huge lottery what is the first thing you'll buy?

A plane ticket out of here.

Book Description:

Upon a dark and blood-filled hour, humanity's doom will rise to power.

Werewolves are real. They haunt the woods of North America, feeding on the bodies of humans stupid enough to blunder across their paths. Once rogue and uncoordinated, the rise of their goddess Alsvinth has brought them all together, with one goal: destroy as much of the species as necessary to enslave them within meat farms, to feed the werewolf army taking over the world.

Olivia, a werewolf from western Canada, and her brother Charlie set out to kill the goddess and save humanity. But can the werewolf and human destroy the goddess’s power, or will she prevail and turn the planet into a wasteland?

"Enough, Olivia," a familiar voice hissed.

I stopped, shocked and scared to stillness. I started to cry as the goddess stood in the grass, kicking Charlie's body aside and sauntering over to me.  

"Thank you, children of the sky," Alsvinth purred, resting a hand on the shoulder of each harpy. They let me go as she touched them. "My, Olivia. How you've grown." 

I was still. I couldn't even think. 

"Well, not really. You don't age anymore, do you?" She grinned. "Like me, eternally beautiful." 

The creature in a woman's skin touched my forehead, and I couldn't even flinch from her cold, dead fingertips.  

"No matter. You will become my second-in-charge. You have been so faithful as to convince the rogue to kill himself to strengthen me." She kissed my forehead. "Dear Olivia," she said as the obliviousness of her mind control took me, threw me to the wolves. 

"You are mine."
