Olivia Rivers is a high school student, a literary agent intern, and an obsessive-compulsive reader. She has a slight obsession with Kootenai County in Idaho, and she’s pretty sure life will always be awesome as long as Irish accents exist. She lives with dysautonomia, a chronic medical condition affecting her nervous system. Portions of proceeds from her “Tortured Elements” series go toward supporting youth with dysautonomia.
Before we start, I have to ask….how do we pronounce your name?
*sigh* Well, technically, it’s pronounced “ALL-lay”. But most people just end up saying “Allie”, since they can’t pronounce it right.
What was it like growing up in a house full of demons? Was it intimidating? Did you ever fear for your life?
It was definitely an intimidating experience. I used to think all the fear was worth it, but now I see that it wasn’t. I don’t think I feared for my life until Shieldak betrayed me. But I did fear for my safety, since most of the Warriors thought I didn’t belong around them.
Your fathers betrayal must run deep. Do you think the two of you will ever be reunited or do you think that he’s done with you for good?
I think I’ll run into him again, but definitely not on good terms. He’s made it his life mission to kill my species.
And what of your new found powers? What do you make of those? Are you scared?
I would consider them pretty awesome, if I knew how to control them. But since I don’t know how to do that, I’m terrified. I don’t want to accidently kill someone.
Drake seems pretty gorgeous…what are your feelings for him?
Sometimes I think I love him, but then I’m not sure. I mean, I loved my dad, and then he just turned around and betrayed me. I’m not sure if I’m really ready to feel love again, or if I’ll ever be. But I definitely feel something deep for Drake. I’m just not sure what it is.
I’m not sure. Corinth seems pretty nice, and I’m excited to finally meet my biological dad. But I know they’re dangerous people, and I’m still not sure where their loyalties really lie.
What can we expect from you in the next book? Will your powers develop?
Yes, I think my powers are going to develop. Or at least I hope they will. If not, I might end up hurting someone again.
You must miss Luke like crazy. If you could say one more thing to him what would it be?
I’d tell him I love him. I never really got the chance to tell him that, even though I’ve always considered him my brother.
