Hi everyone. Today I have an interview with Jaye Knight, the author of the Ilyon Chronicles. First lets hear about the newest book that she just released.

About the Book


Exiled after their defeat in Samara, the Resistance struggles to find allies in their quest to restore King Balen to his throne and put an end to the emperor’s tyranny. When the crete people refuse to lend their aid, Balen leads a group to Dorland to reason with them and win their support. However, enemies prove to be everywhere, and they find themselves in a fight to keep Dorland from becoming Daican’s latest conquest.

Back in Landale, the arrival of a new enemy forces Trask and Anne to tread more carefully than ever. Tensions are rising, and the enemy is determined to test Anne’s loyalty and root out the location of Trask and the Resistance once and for all. 

Feeling trapped within the walls of Valcré, Prince Daniel must contend with an ever-eroding relationship with his father. As their clashes escalate, the situation becomes potentially life threatening when his loyalty is called into question. His sister seems bent on branding him a traitor and actively seeking to condemn him to the fate of those put to death in their father’s new arena. Daniel is certain his father would never execute his only son and heir but, with other forces at work, it might not be that simple. 

One small misstep could prove fatal for all.


Author Interview

Hi Jaye. Welcome to my blog. Will you please tell me a little bit about yourself?

I’m a nearly-thirty country girl, introvert, crazy cat lady (if you are to believe my brothers), and major history buff. I’m also a nerd. I love fandoms. I’m part of so many, and I’d never have it any other way.

What do you like best about writing?

Developing characters. Characters are my favorite part about fiction. As I write, I get to know all these people who didn’t exist before I started the story. They become my friends. Sounds crazy, I know, but fellow authors will understand.

What do you find is the hardest thing about writing?

Right now, it’s finding the time. It was so much easier when I was young and didn’t have so many responsibilities. Adulthood really takes away from that. There are so many things coming at you at once that you have to try to juggle. It’s not very conducive to writing sometimes.

What inspired you to write the Ilyon Chronicles?

Ilyon Chronicles came from reading DragonQuest by Donita K. Paul. When I discovered that my favorite character in the series was half-blooded, it sparked the initial inspiration for Jace. The entire series grew around him.

If you could only have one of your books published, which one would you choose? Why?

Oi, that’s a tough question, especially since almost everything I write is part of a series. I suppose, at this moment, I would choose . . . Samara’s Peril. That’s the main redemption book of Ilyon Chronicles, so probably the one with the most important message.
