30 Days of Demons, Day 15 with D. Renee Bagby Back to Blog
Today’s guest author is D. Renee Bagby. I had the pleasure of cyber meeting Renee through the FF&P RWA Chapter (for those who write fantasy, futuristic, and paranormal romance), and I’ve got to say, she is one busy woman! Welcome, Renee!
Proverb: Raise no more [demons] than you can lay [down].
A good saying except, as much as I would like to lay down Melchior, I can’t. Number one he’s fictional… more’s the pity. Number two, even if he was real, I’d have to go through Serenity to get him… I don’t have a death wish, ’cause that chick is scary. And number three, he’s not a demon.
Melchior may look like a demon—a little over seven feet tall, dark blue skin, blue horns that curve out from his neck and rise above his head, red and yellow dual-colored eyes, a forked tongue, and usually seen wearing nothing but a loincloth—but he’s not one. He and his people—the bhresya—are not from any pits of hell and they generally don’t want to corrupt humans. In fact, they want as little to do with humans as possible.
Humans on the other hand, want to see the bhresyas dead. In order to stop the warring, Melchior proposes a peace that will be solidified with his marriage to Serenity, the princess and only daughter of the ruling monarch of Cheslav, the largest human kingdom. While Melchior’s people object to having a human queen, he ignores their apprehension and follows through with his plan.
When his new wife demands his attention and affection, Melchior begins to think he may have made a mistake after all. Plus there are seemingly random attacks happening around his kingdom with no witnesses and no trace of the culprits—not even if they are human or bhresya.
Melchior is facing a battle on two fronts. Neither of which he plans to lose.
