Today, I’m interviewing Zaden Felinian from Primal Pursuit which releases on October 22nd! Here’s a short description just to give you an idea of what the gorgeous man sitting across from me looks like.
Hair: Black, long, nearly to the bottom of his shoulder blades
Eyes: Golden eyes
Skin: golden tan skin
Build: height around 6’3”, muscled, broad shoulders, long legs
Face: square, strong jaw
Hello Zaden, I hope you’re comfortable. I have a few questions I’d like to ask you just to let my readers know a little more about you before your book comes out on Wednesday.
Zaden: The chair is too soft, but let’s get on with the questions. I’ll answer them, but I need to get back to my journey soon. You know I do have to be somewhere soon. You’re the one who made the schedule so tight.
Thank you. I know you need to be at a certain place and I’ll let you continue your traveling soon. We’ll start with the basics. What are you?
Zaden: I’m a Shadatai Zarain. A Zarain is a shapeshifter. I believe you compared our shape to something you call a grizzly. Shadatai is another group of Zarain. We’re bigger. We have more abilities.
That’s grizzly bear and yes, that is what your shape reminded me of although a Zarain is bigger than a bear. Why do you have more abilities?
Zaden: They developed over many years, because the enemies the Shadatai faced were different, more dangerous than those other Zarain faced.
You just recently found a permanent home on the world of Cordares. Did you just start looking for a mate or did you look before you were settled?
Zaden’s head tilts and he looks at me like he can’t believe I’m asking that: You know the answer to that.
They don’t know as much about you as I do. So answer the question.
I was looking for my mate on every world I ever visited since I reached maturity. A Zarain male does not walk away from his mate once he’s found her no matter when that happens.
Ever? I think I know of an exception to that rule.
I’ve never heard of it happening.
When you meet Tara, what are you doing? What do you think of her?
Zaden scowls at me: I’m on my way back to Cordares when I first scent her. I know she’s my mate. Other than that…
I said meet. When you first realize she’s your mate, you don’t even know what she looks like.
Zaden: I thought that she was much too bold and needed to realize who was in charge. And that she was very sexy.
What do you think when you’re trapped on Deral with her?
Zaden shrugs: In a way, it’s good, but in other ways the situation couldn’t be worse. It will give her time to realize that I’m not just lying to keep her with me, but I hate that she’s in danger of any kind. Her survival is the only thing that matters.
Thank you so much for taking the time to talk with me today. I’ll let you return to your journey. If I have more questions, I’ll ask you about them later. Any questions for Zaden?
