Blog Tour Guest Blog and Giveaway: Summoning the Night by Jenn Bennett

Submitted by on April 24, 2012 – 7:00 am20 Comments

It’s a Family Affair

Paranormal beasties. Ass-kicking. Daddy issues. Tragic pasts. Justice. Snark. All are staples of urban fantasy. And though my series touches on many of these things, the underlying theme of all my stories is family.

In the first book of the Arcadia Bell series, KINDLING THE MOON, Cady is on a quest to clear her family’s name. Her parents are infamous, accused of slaying the leaders of several occult orders. The public sees them as wicked serial killers, but Cady believes them to be innocent, even after spending most of her adult life apart from them, living under an alias. In order to find what she needs to prove their innocence, Cady teams up with a older man, Lon—a single father of a teenager, who’s struggling with his own family issues, which include a messy divorce from a wife bent on self-destruction.

And in book 2, SUMMONING THE NIGHT, Cady and Lon are focused on solving a mystery centered on a villain who is breaking up families, kidnapping local teenagers. Meanwhile, in Cady’s personal life, she’s struggling to make a new fledgling family with Lon and his son. After living alone for seven years—working late nights in a tiki bar she co-owns with her best friend and thinking of nothing but staying hidden from the police—can she make a place in her life for not one, but two people? Because Lon is wholly dedicated to raising his son. So if Cady wants to be with him, she has to accept his familial baggage.

Of course, my series also has magic, demons, and quirky occult weirdness—it is urban fantasy, after all. (Or, an urban fantasy/paranormal romance hybrid, if you want to get technical about it.) But maybe what makes my series stand out from the rest of the pack, is that, at its heart, it’s a story about bonding, loyalty, and people wrestling with the day-to-day challenges of not only holding together the family they already have, but building a new one of their own.

Jenn Bennett is an award-winning visual artist and author of the Arcadia Bell urban fantasy series from Pocket Books. Born in Germany, she’s lived and traveled extensively throughout Europe, the U.S., and the Far East. She believes rebellion is an under-appreciated art form, has conjured more demons than you’ve had hot lunches, and likes her fairy tales like she likes her coffee: dark. She currently lives near Atlanta with her film-geek husband and two very bad pugs.

After narrowly escaping her fate as a sacrificial scapegoat, Arcadia Bell is back to normal. Or at least as ordinary as life can be for a renegade magician and owner of a tiki bar that caters to Earthbound demons. She’s gearing up for the busiest day of the year—Halloween—when a vengeful kidnapper paralyzes the community. The influential head of the local Hellfire Club taps Cady to track down the fiendish bogeyman, and now that she’s dating red-hot Lon Butler, the club’s wayward son, she can hardly say no.

Cady and Lon untangle a gruesome thirty-year trail of clues that points to danger for the club members’ children. But locating the person behind the terror will require some metaphysical help from Cady’s loyal bar patrons as well as her potent new Moonchild powers—and she’d better figure it out before the final victim disappears and her own darkest secret becomes her biggest enemy.

    I’ve been dying to read this series for a while now. Got the first one on my shelf, but I’m waiting to get the second one before I start. Heard nothing but good things so far!

    I haven’t read the series yet, but it sounds like Cady’s hardcore. How did you develop her? Did you just start writing, or did you have an idea of her traits before you got started?

      Hi Lauren: I knew I wanted to write about a girl who could see things that other people couldn’t, and I like writing about magic. I knew I wanted Cady to be tough and resilient, but not over-the-top KICKASS. I liked the idea of writing a heroine who made mistakes, had fears, and didn’t always make the “right”—or the heroic—choice. Her character developed as I was writing.

    I did fall for the sentence “quirky occult weirdness”. Looking forward to reading the books. Ofcourse, the characters are what makes or breaks a book in my opinion. If I can’t like them, it does not matter how good the rest of the book is.

      Aurian: I totally agree with you about characters. I often forgive books that have flawed plots or glitchy pacing simply because I adore the characters so much. :)

    I see you traveled through Europe a lot- any favorite place(s)?

      Bethany: My mother is Swedish, I was born in Germany, and my dad was in the army, so we moved around A LOT when I was growing up, LOL! I have fond memories of Frankfurt, Germany and camping in the Netherlands. More recently, I’ve spent a lot of time in the Far East. I’m madly in love with Hong Kong and have fantasized about moving there. I also like Taipei, Taiwan—a really crazy, chaotic city, but loads of fun.
