Magic In An Urban Setting
Posted by Literary Titan
The Realm of Darkness follows a team of Guardians competing in a tournament where they must uncover secrets, fight corruption, and face off against a powerful demon threatening to destroy humanity. What were some new ideas you wanted to introduce in this book that was different from book one?
Particularly with Book 2, I was eager to explore magic in an urban setting. The setting of Book 2 is in a large city where there are cars, firearms, phones, televisions, etc., but magic is also very present. I was very excited to show magic in that setting, particularly as the main villain reveals himself to the main characters and exhibits his power.
What scene in the book did you have the most fun creating?
I enjoyed everything surrounding the first time the main characters come face-to-face with the main villain of the series. It was fun having the characters go through such a grueling rescue mission only for that rescue mission to be a trap just to get them in position to meet the villain face-to-face for the first time. Those chapters were definitely the most fun for me to write.
Was there anything that developed organically while writing the story that surprised you about your characters?
As I wrote further into Book 2, the friendship dynamics between the five main characters solidified in the story, and even though they are becoming closer as friends, it was very organic to have the main character and leader of the team, Dalton, respect the privacy of his more secretive teammates rather than push them to reveal things they are not ready to share. It was a part of his character I did not expect to happen so organically, considering he is trying his best to learn as much as he can about his mission and the colleagues helping him fight the antagonist.
What can readers expect in book three in the Dimension Guardian series?
Book 3 starts off with a period of levity and silliness only for the team to delve further into the darker parts of their mission. There is more danger, more growth, and the characters have to learn to walk the line between their jobs as Guardians and their private lives as those who are closest to Dalton are directly threatened for the purpose of bringing Dalton and his team closer to a destined battle with the demon trying to destroy the realms.
