Aislynn is accustomed to watching for the enemy. Her parents instructed her from the time she was young to look for the signs: people with greater than normal strength, eyes that can glow green, and have the ability to jump long distances. Over the years, Aislynn has come to view her parents’ fears as quirks—things that get in the way of having a normal high school life.

When Aislynn’s mother dies under suspicious conditions, her father doubles his restrictions. But all his precautions can’t stop the boy with glowing green eyes from finding Aislynn. She realizes too late she’s been drafted into an ancient Egyptian war, whether she’s prepared or not.

Janette RallisonAuthor Janette Rallison

Janette Rallison is old. Don’t ask how old, because it isn’t polite. Let’s just say she’s older than she’d like to be and leave it at that.

Janette lives in Chandler, Arizona with her husband, five children and enough cats to classify her as “an eccentric cat lady.” She did not do this on purpose. (The cats, that is; she had the children on purpose.) Every single one of the felines showed up on its own and refuses to leave. Not even the family’s fearless little Westie dog can drive them off.

Since Janette has five children and deadlines to write books, she doesn’t have much time left over for hobbies. But since this is the internet and you can’t actually check up to see if anything on this site is true, let’s just say she enjoys dancing, scuba diving, horse back riding and long talks with Orlando Bloom. (Well, I never said he answers back.)

Guest Post on the Inspiration for Son of War, Daughter of Chaos

Years ago while I was doing an event with Stephenie Meyer, I made an offhand comment that I wished a sparkly vampire had shown up in my dreams. I usually dream about wandering around in my underwear or being in high school and forgetting where my locker is. Fascinating stuff like that.
Stephenie pointed out that she had only dreamed one scene of Twilight. The rest was a lot of plotting, characterization, and revisions. So true. Good ideas can come easily enough; the hard part is turning them into good books.
After that conversation, two things happened. 1) That night I dreamed bad vampires were attacking the author event, and the Cullens swooped in and saved Stephenie. They sent a vampire friend to save me too, but my vampire was kinda incompetent and he kept dropping me. See, even when I dream of sparkly vampires, they’re not cool like Edward. They’re more like romantic comedy vampires.
2) I remembered that a few months previously, I’d had a really interesting and detailed dream that would make an interesting novel. I began writing scenes for Son of War, Daughter of Chaos in between working on other books for my publishers.
I was surprised at how fun writing about flesh-eating scarabs was. At that time, I was going through some frustrations with my agent and one of my editors, and I channeled all of my anger into the story. I killed people. It was cathartic.
So in a lot of ways I feel like Son of War, Daughter of Chaos is a result of what happens when humor writers go bad.
Many people claim it’s their favorite book of mine. Maybe I should get angry more often.
