I Wanted to Create A New Villain

Shana Congrove Author Interview

Sins of Chaos finds the Breedline species safe from Breedline hybrids but now they face something far more deadly. What were some new ideas you wanted to explore in this book that were different from The Immortal?

For Sins of Chaos, I wanted to create a new villain, or rather a trio of villains, who are far more powerful than the Breedline or any other species in their Covenant. Bringing forth this type of supernatural villains would give me the opportunity to introduce some new “winged” characters to the story who will play a crucial role in my Breedline adventures in the future.

I loved all the new exciting characters included in this story. What were some sources of inspiration that informed their character development?

Everyone wants a hero, especially in a world filled with evil and destruction. That’s when my heroes started to develop. And why not five battle angels. Of course, they are not your typical white winged angels with halos hovering their heads. I wanted my new heroic characters to be larger than life with personalities and special powers to match. Their purpose is vital to the story and will continue on in the future.

How did you come up with the idea for the antagonist in this story and how did it change as you wrote?

Crazy as it sounds, my idea for the antagonist in Sins of Chaos, came from a dream. I knew I needed new exciting villains for my story, but I struggled with the idea. One night I dreamed of three fraternal siblings with supernatural powers. They all had specific characteristics and unique powers. As time passed, they became more vivid and believable in my own mind. Although they are the “bad guys,” their story will shift toward the end.

What can readers expect in the next book in your Breedline Series?

Next in line for my Novels of the Breedline series follows:

  • The Curse
  • Living Nightmares
  • Vampires in Manhattan

  1. Definitely the next in my TBR!
    I can’t wait to devote some quality reading time to this, especially because I already know the characters from reading the amazing first book, The Immortal.
