Meet Xen Lyson (Character Interview by Efthalia)
Please tell us your name and a little about your background.
My name is Xen Lyson. I have fought wars for humans and against supernatural creatures for thousands of years. I am a warrior first and foremost but I’m also lethal.
What is your greatest fear?
Losing Carissa who means the world to me.
Whom do you trust the most?
Kane Hart, my right hand man.
What obstacles stand in the way of your happiness?
The biggest obstacle is keeping Carissa off the most wanted with demi-gods and demons and keeping her safe.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
More like scented at first sight. I picked Carissa’s scent across a warehouse in the midst of a skirmish with demons. I knew just from her scent that she would be mine.
Efthalia lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband and two children. Her passion for writing was cultivated by the stories her mother told her as a child. She has an MA in Writing and is currently studying the Classics and Archaeology at Sydney University. Phantasma is her debut novel and the first in the Phi Athanatoi Series.
One night’s transgression. A love unveiled. The in-escapable outcome of passion and vengeance.
Carissa Alkippes is a daughter of a god but she doesn’t know it. As a cop she’s seen her fair share of bad but nothing prepared her for the horror of the world she has been plunged into.
Xen Lyson is the head of the Phi Athanatoi, a group of immortals who have been protecting man for over 2,000 years from the Kakodiamones – demons who want nothing more than to feast on humanity.
Thrown face to face with Xen during a skirmish with the demons, Carissa becomes a pawn in a deadly game of a demi-god who seeks godly power.
