Connect With Renee
Auren faces the harshest punishment she's ever experienced for having pursued her relationship with Etan after being warned to stay away from him. To make matters worse, she has to face Kado for breaking her connection with him.
Kado decides it's time to leave Ganida so Auren can focus on her training. Although she struggles to put her feelings for Etan behind her, she realizes there are more important things, like telling Kado she believes leaving the Dark Isle might be inevitable.
To her surprise, Kado agrees, but he wants to ensure Auren is prepared. She faces torture at the hands of the Galvadi Empire, and he feels she needs to learn to survive it. It might be the only thing that saves her, but can she endure the training?

Character Interview with Drevin from the Shadow Stalker Series
Hello Drevin. Thank you for stopping by!
I'm sure Renee's readers are looking forward to getting to know you.
*wry grin* I'm sure.
Why don't we get started then?
Where were you born, and what was it like growing up there?
I was born on the Dark Isle. My life there was great until I found out the Foramar had done a horrible thing to my parents. I had grown up believing they were dead, but it turned out they had been forced apart because they had mated against the will of the shadow people.
Is it true that the Foramar spared your life when it was well within his rights to kill you when you were born?
It was the only sane thing he'd done as the Foramar
I see. So is that why you keep him prisoner?
I keep him prisoner because he would unleash an unspeakable horror on our world just to spare his child.
But sparing you was okay.
Okay, moving on. Did you have many friends growing up?
I did, and they are still my friends today.
Oh? Who are they?
*laughs* Kado could tell you. He watches them like criminals and believes they don't know.
What is the most important thing you've learned in your life?
Trust no one.
That seems to be a pretty lonely view. Haven't you ever been in love?
I do not need to get tangled in emotional affairs to have women. As the emperor of a great nation, they flock to me.
I see. And it doesn't bother them that you do not love them?
They feel honored just to be with me.
You are very driven to capture and kill the delohi-saqu. What are your plans for the Serpent Isles once you've achieved that goal?
I have many plans that I will not speak openly about. You never know who is listening.
Of course, but wouldn't you like to be able to just relax and maybe go on vacation?
There is no time for such trivial things.
Well Drevin, that's all we have time for. Thank you for joining us. It's been…interesting.
I'm sure it has. Be sure your readers understand that siding with the delohi-saqu is dangerous. Don't be fooled by her innocent appearance or one day she may enslave your world too.
Of course, I'll let them know.
See that you do.
