Blood Chained Blitz & Giveaway with Eden Ashley

Blood Chained by Eden Ashley
Publication date: November 18th 2014
Genres: Paranormal Romance, Young Adult


Sometimes great evil is necessary to keep what you love most.
After centuries on the run, Rhane can avoid justice no longer. Primes have called him home and now he must finally answer for the sins of his past. But the situation in Rhane’s homeland is far worse than anyone could have imagined, and the judgment Rhane faces is a brutal one. Even relying on the strength of the immortal Banewolf, the man he has become may not survive.
Kali and the other kin work tirelessly to secure Rhane’s freedom, but many obstacles stand in their way. Wesley offers a solution that hinges upon resuming a dangerous search for the Siren’s Heart. Trusting him, she and the kin set out once again to find the elusive artifact, believing Rhane and Warren’s freedom can be bartered in exchange for the statue. But other creatures are searching for the Heart. And with greater resources and a head start, their enemies may reach it first.

Is this your first book? How many books have you written?

Blood Chained is not my first book. It’s actually the third book in a planned four-part series. Rhane and Kali’s journey begins in Dark Siren where they first find each other and try to figure the many secrets standing between them. Banewolf was released last year and continues their story. I’m extremely happy with how the second book turned out. It’s getting a lot of great reviews right now.

What does your writing process look like?

It involves lots of post-its and scratch paper for random flashes of inspiration that I really, really, really don’t want to forget. With the Dark Siren series, as things got more complex, I had to make a reference chart of characters, their relationships and motivations—I also ended up crossing them off as they died, so they didn’t accidentally make it into future scenes!

Is there a certain type of scene that’s harder for you to write than others?

Action scenes take the longest. And this series has a lot of action. I like to keep things interesting, so it’s worth the struggle.

What are you working on now? What is your next project?

I’m currently finishing up the final book in the Dark Siren series. It’s tentatively titled Primed Son and will be released next year. At the same time, I’m working on another paranormal romance. It’s a separate book that follows entirely different characters. I’ve put some excerpts online and have gotten some really good feedback, so I’m pretty excited about it. Look for it next year as well.

If you had a super power, what would it be?

I would have to say telekinesis, but on a Dark Phoenix level. Being able to move things with my mind would be invaluable during my morning commute to work.

I'm Eden Ashley and I was born and raised in a small, sunny town in South Carolina. However, it's the thunderstorms that inspire my best ideas. There are few things I love more than curling up with a good book and a cup of coffee on a rainy day, (except maybe chocolate cake. I love cake.) often reading into the wee hours of morning when something really grabs me. I pretty much love anything with supernatural elements, so writing paranormal romance and fantasy romance seems to be a natural fit.

My first novel, Dark Siren, is best described as paranormal romance artfully wrapped within a plot chock-full of action, adventure, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, while the series has evolved to become a journey of redemption and second chances as two characters understand that sometimes committing evil is necessary to protect what is loved most. I took the siren from Greek mythology (and borrowed a little from mermaid lore), creating an entirely different creature, with its own mythology, and one that Publisher's Weekly praised for its passion and complexity. This is not just another werewolf/shapeshifter romance or vampire romance. I think this is a story that both adults and teens can enjoy, full of characters to fall in love with!

I love getting feedback! For the latest news on upcoming sequels and other novels, find me on my website:
