Krystal Shannan Features - Gabrielle Bisset

Please help me welcome Gabrielle Bisset to the blog today!

Thanks so much, Krystal, for having me here today to talk about my Sons of Navarus series. From a single character who I began to get emails asking when is he getting his book, it's grown to a series that will add its 7th book this spring.

I get asked all the time, "How did you come up with this series idea?" The answer is simple. Vasilije. I'd written him into a novella that had been a personal reaction to something I was dealing with at the time (writer's catharsis, I guess). He wasn't a huge part of that story, but there was something about him that readers took to. That novella sold so well and so many people asked when they'd be able to read something about him, so I began to write him his own story.

Very quickly, it was much bigger than I'd ever planned. For anyone who's read Blood Avenged, you know Vasilije is a huge character. He takes up all the air in the room, so I guess I wasn't too surprised when he began to demand a series come from his book. (He's very persuasive.) Before long, I had the Sons of Navarus series roughly plotted out and as they say, the rest is history.

I ended up wanting a series that featured a group of heroes readers could fall in love with. Here's a taste of what it's turned out to be:

Eight vampire warriors descended from the gods and chosen to defend their world against the Archon takeover, each dedicated to the war they must win. But there's another side to these Sons of Navarus—one that only the women they love know. Behind the strength they need to defeat their enemies lies a passion different in each one of the Sons. Their war will take them around the world and even involve the gods themselves, but they must unlock the secrets of the Prophecy of Idolas to defeat the Archons or perish in trying for none of their kind can be safe if the Archons win this battle.

Those eight warriors—Vasilije, Saint, Terek, Ramiel, Thane, Sion, Dante, and Nico—have three books behind them already, and Blood Prophecy is the next book in the series and due out this spring. So what can readers expect? Love, action, heartache, dark times,'s a huge turning point in the series. I know readers are going to love it!
