Reborn Blog Tour

 

For today's Reborn Blog Tour, I am at:

Jay Noel's blog for some good ol' promo.

Today's Reborn tidbit: One of the most controversial parts of Reborn with some of my early readers is the woodwoses' section, since some readers didn't understand the purpose of the woodwoses and why Yssa needed to spend time with them in the middle of the novel.

Woodwoses are the wild men of the forest. They can be similar to satyrs or fawn, although a bit more humanoid than a mixture of human/animal. The woodwoses of Waldbaum Forest are not native to Amora. They used to live beyond the Great Mountains in Norvadia. They were forced south, away from their homeland, and settled in Amora and gave the name Waldbaum to the forest. They enjoy celebrating and converse with nature.
Yssa spends months with the woodwoses, even though Reborn shows only four main chapters with them. If she did not spend this time with them, she would not have discovered Liam's secret or have survived the journey back to the City of Amora. Basically, that section keeps her alive and, to me, is one of the most pivotal parts of the book.
