The Breedline Series

Shana Congrove Author Interview

The Immortal follows an artists who’s attacked by a creature that infects her with a virus that threatens to turn her if she succumbs to the bloodlust. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

In all my Breedline novels, there are situations where my characters are faced with good vs. evil, similar to the world we live today. Unfortunately, in the real world, between good and evil, “the bad guys” are sometimes the conquerors. But in my Breedline fantasy world, good always proves more powerful than their opposing evil forces. Although my characters face their share of trials and tribulations along the way, it’s important to give my readers that fairytale ending where the “good guys” always prevails in the end.

Jena is an intriguing and well developed character. What were some driving ideals behind her character’s development?

It was important for me to create a strong female character who isn’t waiting for her “knight and shining armor” to be rescued. Although she does have a supporting character to help her along the way, Jena finds her own way to overcome the dangers—which are very terrifying and unimaginable—that are fast closing in.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

The Immortal introduces new characters to my Breedline series who are “undead” and also stem from the eighteenth-century. So, with that in mind, I definitely had to put on my A-game. I love that time period, so creating characters from that era gave me that extra inspiration to do my best.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

The next Novel of the Breedline series, The Curse, will be available in early 2022. Next in line for the Novels of the Breedline series include: Living Nightmares, and The Vampires in Manhattan.

After an age-old creature—buried deep underground—rises from years of peaceful slumber to feast on humans, it attacks Jena McCain—a young artist who has the ability to speak with the dead—and infects her with a curse. As the virus spreads through her body, Jena has one hundred and one days to resist her newly found urges for human blood. If she succumbs to the bloodlust, she will become the thing that has cursed her. While Jena heals in the hospital, her thirst for blood rises. Desperate for help, she confides in her best friend Angie, realizing time is running out. Surprisingly, Angie has a few secrets of her own. What she reveals to Jena goes beyond unbelievable. Not only is Angie not human—born with the ability to shift into a wolf—there is a secret species of supernatural beings called the Breedline. Now that Jena’s reality has slowly shifted into a bizarre realm, she must come to accept the unbelievable and trust her friend before it’s too late. But unknown to all, the immortal creature will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants—to seduce Jena and make her his bride.

  1. I absolutely loved this book and Ms Congrove’s amazing Breedline series. I’m particularly knocked senseless by her powerful description that bring scenes so alive and real in the mind that you hear the blood spray and the bones crunch.

    A definite must read for all lovers of this genre!
