{Blog Tour} Character Interview + Giveaway: Phoenix - Elizabeth Richards

Thanks for dropping by my stop on the Phoenix blog tour! You can see the full tour schedule here.

Today’s 60-second interview is with Dacian temptress, Giselle Lambert.
1. Describe yourself in three words.
- Fierce, mischievous, thief

2. What’s your favorite pastime? 
- I love to dance, particularly to Dacian folk music. My people are very musical, and we find any excuse to sing and dance.

3. Ash or Elijah? 
- Ash. He’s so brave and defiant. A true leader.

4. Cats or dogs? 
- Dogs. They’re loyal and loveable.

5. What’s your favorite food? 
- A traditional Dacian dish called sarmale, served with polenta. Sarmale are cabbage leaves stuffed with pork, greens and tomatoes.

6. Tell us a secret about yourself. 
- No. Dacians bring their secrets to their grave.

7. What are you afraid of? 
- Madame Clara dying. I don’t know what I’d do without her; she’s the closest thing to a mother that I have, and I love her with all my heart.

8. Who do you love the most in this world? 
- Madame Clara. She took me and Lucas in, when no one else wanted us. She has the most generous heart of anyone I know.

9. Who do you hate the most?
- My father.

10. If you had one wish, what would it be?
- I wish that my people were accepted by the other humans. They treat us worse than the Darklings sometimes.

That's it! If you want to know more about Giselle, be sure to pick up a copy of Phoenix which will be on sale tomorrow, June 4th!
