Elaine Callowayabout this book: Water's Blood is the first in a four-book series about Nature's Elementals and their struggle to protect innocent souls against the Fallen Angel armies, who lurk unnoticed amongst humanity. The book is a paranormal / fantasy / romance story of the battle of good versus evil, and the importance of free will.
Brooke, a Water Elemental stationed in New Orleans, has always excelled at her job--until now. After breaking the rules to mate with a human and conceive a half-breed child, she is forbidden to share a life with her loved ones.
Now the local clan of Fallen Angels has targeted her half-breed daughter for their own, and Brooke and Alex must stop them before midnight on Halloween in order to save their daughter's soul.
I have always been fascinated by Elementals and Fallen Angels, and one day decided to put the two archetypes together in a battle for a young child's soul. Having grown up in New Orleans and its iconic yet haunting scenery, I enjoyed setting the story there and having the backdrop of the Water Elemental's story be in a city surrounded by water.
The title, Water's Blood, is in part to include the name of the Elemental protagonist (Water) but her half-breed daughter has half of her blood, so the title was a play on words. The child is the Water Elemental's flesh and blood.
I was very fortunate to find a cover artist on deviantart, and I picked out the main eye image because the expression held an attitude, a resilience, that defined my protagonist. In addition, I admire this tenacious attitude of everyone living in New Orleans, so the cover wound up having a deeper meaning.
Water's Blood contains a sneak peek of Raging Fire, which is Book Two in the series. Raging Fire will be released in Summer 2013, so stay tuned!
