What The World Wants Them To Be

Stafanie Chu Author Interview

Knights of the Alliance follows several warriors that are brought into an elite group of Knights in order to save their world. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

The Alliance series in its earliest form was a fanfic of an online game I used to play. Which one? That’s the secret! Diehard fans may be able to figure it out, but Alliance has evolved so far from the game it has practically no similarities. The characters are based off the top players in the game.

Mirari has a complex backstory and works through a lot of emotions from her past. What were some driving ideals behind your Mirari’s development?

Mirari works through grief and loss while struggling to find her identity and place in the world. It echoes the way many people in the real world have to choose between who they want to be vs what the world wants them to be, whether it is among family, friends or peers.

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

The biggest themes are overcoming adversity and learning how to forgive and move on from the past. Despite how prominent political themes are in the book, those are only meant to serve as a backbone for deeper subjects. I like to make my characters as real as possible. I think it’s important that we don’t sugarcoat the struggles in life, and for readers to have themes they can relate to in some way.

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

​​My heart and soul is 100% dedicated to the Alliance series. Book 2, Birth of Resilience, will be available August 2022. If you like diving into the minds of complex characters, this is the book for you.

Ten years have passed and he has forgotten her. But Mirari would still do anything to save her childhood friend from the executioner’s sword.

Meanwhile, Fangbane has spent his life trying to end centuries of social and political hostility. As his fame spreads, brave Knights rally to his cause.

But to truly succeed, Fangbane must have two others: Gaven, the headstrong warrior he helped put on death row, and Mirari, a simple merchant with a past as secretive as her formidable magical ability. Their aid could be the difference between success and failure.

Can Gaven put aside his apathy to fully commit to the alliance?

Will Mirari become a worthy fighter and subdue her desire for revenge?

With the threat of a growing movement of underground vigilantes bent on tipping the system, the Knights must act quickly.

Time is running out to rid the world of evil.
