Today I would like to give a warm welcome back to author Carrie Ann Ryan who is joining us this time around with her book, Enforcer's Redemption!
Villain vs. Hero: What Demon?
Sometimes it’s easy to find the villain in the story. He’s the bad guy with the gun right? What if you have a demon, but then you have another. But the second one is an inner demon who seems to take the story to a whole new direction.
That’s what happened to me with Enforcer’s Redemption.
Caym, the demon in the series, has always been the bad guy. Corbin, the rival werewolf, the other sadistic bad guy.
I had thought my hero would be Adam, the wolf who had lost everything and was in need of a happy ending.
It turned out that Adam’s inner demon—his pain, was my other bad guy.
Talk about changing a story.
Instead of a story where things blow up, people are killed, and love conquers all, it became a story of healing, and finding a way to work through the pain as it becomes all consuming. Oh yeah, and things blow up and people are killed…so that love conquers all.
Adam surprised me. He was the villain to me at some parts. He wasn’t the nice guy.
He was a butt.
Then he healed.
Or rather, Bay, his mate, healed him.
So yes, the villain is Caym. The villain is Corbin. But inner demons are just as prominent. I love reading about that. Who knew I’d write it too?
Adam Jamenson has suffered through the worst loss known to man. The only reason he lives day-to-day is to ensure the safety of his Pack. As the Enforcer of the Redwood Pack, it is his job to protect all in his path, though he was unable to protect the ones he held dear. The war with the Centrals is heating up and Adam must try and grit through it in order to survive. Though the broken man inside of him may not want to…
Bay Milton is a werewolf with a past. And a secret. She’s met the Redwood’s Enforcer only once, but it left a lasting effect. Now she needs to find him or everything he had thought he lost, may be lost again.
Together, they must struggle and find a way to fight their pasts and present in order to protect their future. But the Centrals have a plan that might make their path one of loss and destruction.
