My Interview with Antoine from Julieanne Lynch's Shadow World Series

Thank you for joining us today Antoine, come & take a seat, on my couch, Don’t worry it’s not a casting couch, Well maybe, we will see how you get on.
Thank you, Julie, and might I just add, I think you look simply delicious this fine evening!

Oh my has it got a bit warm in here now, *waves hand in front of face*
Ok, shall we start, are you ready, because I am more than ready
I am ready when you are, I have all the time in the world!

How are you feeling, you’re not nervous, are you?
I am feeling quite exuberant tonight. There is an unusual aroma dancing around me, and I must admit that it is certainly enticing.
I would like to think that I have never experienced that odd sensation you mortals often refer to, but am I quite right in assuming that the experience can be both fulfilling and never wrecking?
Tell me, Julie, are YOU nervous?
Yeah just a little, this is a total fan-girl moment for me.

Would you like a drink? maybe something to eat? me maybe?
I try to make it a point of never mixing business with pleasure, but of course, there are times when a ‘little’ something can be quite refreshing for the soul; if you have one.
 What would you suggest? Your neck, wrist or thigh? *winks* I personally find that *runs finger over your collar bone in circular moves* little spot right below your collar bone to give just the right amount of flow. It’s like warm nectar; soft and velvety.
*Shivers from your touch*

What is your favourite power?
Fire is certainly the most entertaining of them all. I, as you well know am partial to using a little pyre to my advantage, something I dare say I will continue to use. But I believe I have a little competition in the form of our little Princess. I do also enjoy a little adventure now and then, but of course that always ends up as a little universe shifting.

How old are you now, if you don’t mind me asking?
Hmm, it all depends on how old you want me to be? *cheeky grin* Let’s put it like this, I was around a long time before Drake tried to bed dear old Lizzy back in 1588. But if you really want a number, how’s this for measure? I am the grand old age of 915, year of birth, 1098 and William the Conqueror was the head of your Kingdom.

Are you concerned about age differences?
Certainly not. Surely you’ve heard that something gets better with age, and I, like a good old Brandy, only get better with each passing year.
Yes you do

Are you happy that you’re living/dead?
I have never been dead, my fair Julie. I am as alive as you. I exist just like you; the only difference is I am a creature of the night. I in a time when the classical blood line was strong, and our hearts beat strong just as yours does now.

Do you have any guilty pleasures? Are they guilty really?
Through my life I must admit that there have been times when the inner monster inside me ruled, and I never gave much concern as to how I got my pleasures, but these days I find a beautiful sunset quite pleasing to the eye, as I do watching Giselle breathe as she sleeps. Of course, I would never let her know that, she’d probably scoff at me and lay a few punches in my direction.
But I have become quite accustomed to apples – yes, bizarre. I find their crunch and flavour quite pleasing on my palate, and I do enjoy reminiscing about times gone by in The Louvre, Paris brings me many strong memories.

What would you change about yourself if you could?
 Nothing! Why ever would I? I don’t mean to sound ridiculously snobbish or as Giselle says, ‘cocky’, but I have always been comfortable in my own skin. I am what I am, and no amount of wistful wishes could ever change my existence. I am here to serve a purpose, and I believe I am delivering on queue.

What is your favourite thing to do in the whole world?
Hunt and I don’t mean me running through forests bare foot and chowing down on deer. I prefer Asiatic black bear hunting. I often go back to the Khabarovsk region and Primnorsky Krai and take great sport by stalking and bating in the fall or spring and in the dens in the winter.

Do you thinkyou & Giselle will make it?
I can tell you this; our life together has been forged by a series of events that can never be undone. Giselle is now a fundamental part of who I am, without her, I would be just another pointless being. She makes sense of who I am, and for alone, I am grateful. Plus she is very pleasing to the eye, but the rest you will just have to wait and see! J

I know I should probably ask Julieanne this but maybe you will know, I can’t wait to hear more about your life, will there be any more books with you in them?
 I do believe my darling Julieanne has penned a complete series based on my life before I became embroiled in Giselle’s story. You may have become acquainted with my younger brother, Luka in the Shadow World series, and in The Vilniv Chronicles, you will become even more acquainted with my entire family, and none more so than my twin sister, Isobelle. There have been many adventures and love interests to keep you reading into the early hours.

How do you feel about how the world has changed since you were born to present day?
I believe man continues to ruin this precious planet he likes to call ‘home’. With all these ‘man made’ wars, we creatures of the underworld can live without the fear of fingers pointing at us. Man is quite accomplished at destroying himself, and we can just sit back and enjoy the show. Of course, women have become more independent and beautiful. That alone is a striking change, considering I was born in a time when women were nothing more than child bearers and cleaners. Women of today are stronger, and indeed have become mans equal.

Optional questions

What is your biggest pet peeve?
Vampires who kill for sport.

All time favorite movie? Or top 3? 
Berlin Wintergarten Novelty Program (1895)
Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932)
Casablanca (1942)
