TOUR STOP: Divinicus Nex Chronicles

Demons at DeadnightDrop Dead Demons
(Goodreads linked to covers)

Summary: Demons at Deadnight
For seventeen-year-old Aurora Lahey, survival is a lifestyle. 
Aurora has the crappiest superpower on the planet. And it's just unleashed a hit squad from hell. Demons are on the hunt, salivating to carve her carcass into confetti. 
The Hex Boys--mysterious, hunky, and notorious for their trails of destruction--have the answers Aurora needs to survive. But their overload of deadly secrets and suspicious motives makes trusting them a potentially fatal move. 
The battle to save her family, herself, and stop demonic domination may cost Aurora everything worth living for, and force her to reveal her own dark secrets. But no worries. She needs the Hex Boys to pull this off, and, chances are, teaming up with these guys will get her killed anyway. 

Summary: Drop Dead Demons
Survival. It's an on-going battle.
Aurora Lahey finally knows why supernatural slayers salivate to slaughter her, but how to stop them? Not so much. Sure, she's discovered her own lethal powers, and has six sexy, super-charged, demon hunting Hex Boys watching her back--the hottest one watching every part of her. But when a seductive stranger delivers a deadly ultimatum, Aurora and the Hex Boys plunge into a do-or-die hunt for a legendary Mandatum treasure, which will finally shift power in their favor. Or unleash hell on earth.
Pursued by demons of mythical proportions, Aurora and the Hex Boys race deeper into the shadowy world of a centuries-old mystery and brutal conspiracy, where no one and nothing is what it seems. Where love and betrayal go hand-in-hand, and trusting the wrong person not only breaks your heart, but gets you killed.
Uncovering shocking secrets from the Hex Boys' past, hiding her Divinicus Nex identity, lying to her pretend-wish-he-were-real boyfriend, dodging demons, breaking into ancient tombs, taking the unexpected side trip to the dark depths of the Waiting World, tracking a traitor, and passing Physics...Aurora could do that in her sleep. Or more likely, die trying.

Hello everyone! Welcome to my tour stop for the Divinicus Nex Chronicles! I was lucky enough to get the authors A&E Kirk to answer some questions so let's get into those: 

How did you come up with the ideas that shaped the Chronicles?
Alyssa: I got bored in my mountain town, daydreamed that there was a huge demon invasion and an insanely hot guy helped save the town. But how would we find the demons? Well someone would have to have psychic link to demons that allows her to track them. But then she would be totally helpless against the demons so she’d need some kick-butt, incredibly sexy help. And my imagination kept spiraling from there.

Out of all the characters, who speaks out to you the most?
Eileen: As a mom, Mrs. Lahey’s overprotective nature speaks out loud and clear, just like the character. When she’s on the speakers at the school in Demons at Deadnight, I was thinking, that is totally what a mom would want to do, but wouldn’t because she’d know her kids would kill her. What I love about Gemma Lahey is that she does that stuff anyway. As for main characters, it would probably be Matthias. I get his dark broody nature, his struggle dealing who he was, who he is now, and who he’d like to be.
Alyssa: Aurora speaks to me most. I aspire to be like her, the brave just go for it type. I’m checking out some martial arts classes so I can be kick-butt as she is!

Are there any challenges to writing with another person?
Luckily, for the most part, we have similar tastes and ideas about the story, but we do run into conflicts. We talk it through and come to some sort of compromise. We write different scenes and if one of us writes something out of the blue that we didn’t discuss and it sends the rest of the book in another direction, we can have a problem. The Hex Boys, Aurora, and her family, we both know well. It’s usually with new characters that we may differ on what they’d think and do.  

Favorite movies?
We have the exact same tastes in movies! Although we did just see the Maze Runner and I (Alyssa) loved it, but while Mom (Eileen) liked it she thought it was a bit slow. She has a short attention span. But our top picks are:
Older ones: Princess Bride, Titanic, Sound of Music, Star Wars (older ones),
Recent: The Avengers (and any of the marvel character movies)
X-men Series
Hunger Games Series
Star Trek (especially Into Darkness because of Benedict Cumberbach who stars as Sherlock on our Favorite TV Series!)
The Fault in Our Stars
Guardians of the Galaxy  (omg, we died laughing watching that baby!)

What is your favorite quote from the books?
Alyssa’s Fave:
I launched into a graceful ninja-like front roll, then stood my ground to face the monstrous heathen, fearless in my determination to vanquish the deadly foe.
Nah, just kidding. I bolted, discretion being the better part of not getting dead.
Alyssa: This one Eileen wrote. I was reading it and thinking, “Wow, Aurora’s really a tough—Oh. Hahaha!”
Eileen’s Fave:
“You’re telling me you’re not worried about your daughter hanging out with six boys and dating one of them who looks at her with that look?”
My brow creased. “What look?”
“Oh please,” Aunt M scoffed. “That look. And not to mention that smile. Hungry,” she growled the word, “and hot enough to make a nun’s panties spontaneously combust.”
            Eileen: Aunt M always cracks me up!

If the Divinicus Nex Chronicles was turned into a movie, who would you cast for Aurora?
Shelley Hennig. We saw her a while ago on Secret Circle and thought she’d be great. She’s currently on Teen Wolf  (MTV) as Malia the were-coyote, and girlfriend of Stiles who we adore. We also adore Tyler Hoechlin (Derek) who is one of the huge reasons we watch the show. Derek and Stiles. So awesome…sigh. Wait, what were we talking about?   

Thanks so much for answer the questions~!

Daily Question:
Jayden is a literal genius who uses lots of obscure words that you usually only see on SAT tests. What word would you use to impress Jayden (or even try to stump him!) and what does it mean?

Good luck to everyone!! 

Foreverly Obsessed,
