Welcome to the meet the character blog tour for the much anticipated Talon by Julie Kagawa. We are SUPER excited to be introducing you to this dashing fellow to our left His name is Tristan and he’s a member of the Order of St. George. He’s a bit snarky, he like’s his weapons and he likes to have a little bit of fun on his down time. We got a chance to do a little “speed dating” Q&A with him, it brought out his, well lets just say frisky side. We had a blast, and we hope you enjoy getting to know him a bit better before you check out Talon.
But anywho, back to the real reason you’re here, the Q&A. So, without further adieu, here’s Tristian:
PTB: Favorite weapon.
Tristan: My Barrett M107A1 .50 caliber rifle. Uh, that’s a high powered sniper rifle for those who don’t speak Gun.
I think you’ve confused me with my partner, Garret. He’s the bookworm. If I’m reading anything, it’s usually Gunman Monthly.
Would you rather fight with sarcasm or a physical weapon of your choice?
Well, that depends. If it’s just some random moron who doesn’t have a clue, sarcasm has always been my friend. If it’s a rampaging dragon trying to eat me, sarcasm isn’t quite as effective as a nice slug between the eyes.
Chocolate or vanilla
Brunette. Wait, that wasn’t the question? Oh, chocolate I guess.
Favorite off duty activity
What’s the age group of your audience? Teens and young adults, you say? Uh, yeah. Let’s go with knitting. I love to…knit. Nice, safe knitting, yeah.
Coffee, tea or coke?
Coffee. It’s a lifesaver after a hard night of…knitting.
Besides myself? I guess that would be my partner, Garret. Though don’t tell him that. Wouldn’t want it going to his head.
Favorite place to visit.
France. The coffee there is the best, and the views aren’t bad, either.
Ok now, I know y’all are swooning over him, but remember,

Long ago, dragons were hunted to near extinction by the Order of St. George, a legendary society of dragon slayers. Hiding in human form and growing their numbers in secret, the dragons of Talon have become strong and cunning, and they’re positioned to take over the world with humans none the wiser.
Ember and Dante Hill are the only sister and brother known to dragonkind. Trained to infiltrate society, Ember wants to live the teen experience and enjoy a summer of freedom before taking her destined place in Talon. But destiny is a matter of perspective, and a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught. As Ember struggles to accept her future, she and her brother are hunted by the Order of St. George.
Soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian has a mission to seek and destroy all dragons, and Talon’s newest recruits in particular. But he cannot kill unless he is certain he has found his prey: and nothing is certain about Ember Hill. Faced with Ember’s bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything that the Order has ingrained in him: and what he might be willing to give up to find the truth about dragons.
