To celebrate the release of The Forever Song, we thought it’d be fun do a little speed dating interview favorite baddie from the trilogy, Jackal.  For those of you who haven’t read the books yet, Jackel is Allison’s vampire sibling, they share a maker.  He’s not so nice in general, but he has his moments.  We hope you enjoy getting to know him a little bit better, and I’m kind of glad this interview wasn’t IRL, I’m not sure I would have survived.

PTB: Favorite Color?
Jackal: Red. Like your blood. Spilling over the ground from the stump of your neck after I tear your head off.

Blond, Brunette or Red Head?
What does it matter? They all taste the same.

What would you do if you could go out in the sun for a day?
Nothing I can’t do in the middle of the night. Except maybe get sunburn. Sadly, vampires don’t tan.

What human food do you miss most?
I don’t miss human food. I can barely recall what it tastes like. Though I do remember I could make a wicked meatloaf.

Craziest adventure as a vampire?
I’d say the one I’m on right now with the old man and my bleeding-heart sister qualifies. Though the time I took on that rival raider gang by myself runs a close second. Lots of blood, guts, flying body parts. Good times.

Whatโ€™s your Apocalyptic tag line?
What the hell is an Apocalyptic tag line? Do you want me to rip your head off?

Where did you live before you were turned?
A pathetic little homestead in the middle of nowhere. Not surprisingly, it was attacked by raiders who killed everyone there but me. And then, this dark stranger showed up and asked me if I wanted to be immortal. Easiest choice I ever made.

Favorite place to look for a meal.
Lift your head up just a little. Yeah, right there, below your chin.

Whatโ€™s your favorite book?
You don’t run into many books where I come from. Though I did stumble across this old copy of The Divine Comedy, once. It was good for a laugh.

If we could meet in real life, where would you take me and what would you do?
*Evil smile* Why don’t I show you, right now, bloodbag? Just step over here and close your eyes. Don’t worry, it’ll be over in a few seconds.

About Julie Kagawawebsite | blog | Twitter | Facebook | Goodreads
Julie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasnโ€™t getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish and the odd eel.

To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dog trainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full-time.

Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all-time low. She lives with her husband, two obnoxious cats, one Australian shepherd who is too smart for his own good and the latest addition, a hyperactive Papillon puppy.

    I'm excited and yet sad that the same time that the series is ending. I want to know how the story is going to end more than not knowing the ending.

  6. Ooh I love character interviews! I've only read the first one, so I'm planning on getting the next two and then I can read them straight through. No more waiting for me! ๐Ÿ˜€
