Forever: The Dragon Wars by Rebecca Royce Book Tour, Interview

Forever: The Dragon Wars
by Rebecca Royce


Devin Owen has come back from the Dragon Wars a changed Werewolf. For one thing, he's lost his wolf side as well as most of his desire to live. He spends most of his life doped up to handle the pain from his injured leg.

Lena Knox knew the moment she met Devin that he was her mate. But, she'd been a child at the time and he hadn't noticed her at all. Now, all grown up she wants Devin to be the wolf she’s waited for. Not that she has a lot of time for longing with life crumbling around her.

A couple of heated encounters draw them together but is it enough to overcome the war wounds they both carry? Or will an outside enemy destroy them before they get the chance to know?



One lone tear escaped, and she quickly batted it away. She might as not have, as he’d be able to smell her distress. Trying to be as sly as she could, she glanced over at Devin, hoping he wouldn’t notice. He stared up at the ceiling, his gaze distant and removed.

She cleared her throat. “Would you like to shift and go for a run?”

Lena couldn’t think of anything she’d like better than to escape this room. He’d brought her utter and complete pleasure and then shattered her soul.

Devin rolled over, his back facing her, his head turned away. “You go ahead. I can’t shift anymore. Haven’t been able to since I came back.”

He couldn’t shift? A strange buzzing sensation filled her mind. This was important. It had to matter that Devin had been disconnected from his Wolf.

“That’s why you can’t heal your leg? You can’t shift to fix it?”

He turned to look at her, his eyes tired. “It’s pretty disgusting, I know. Trust me, no one likes looking at it less than I do. Twisted flesh, the bone poking out from where it should be—yeah, it’s gross.”

Lena wasn’t exactly certain what was going on, but she’d somehow stepped into a minefield. She hoped she could find her way out. Fast.

“I didn’t say it was gross. I just asked if that was why it wasn’t fixed.” She rubbed her eyes. “What do the doctors say about why you can’t shift?”

“Nothing. They have nothing to say.”


If I could be a shifter I would be? Why?
A wolf shifter! I love the wolves.  I write about them just about every other book. 

Was there a particular person that you used for inspiration for Forever? Why?
No, it was more like, for a number of reasons, I wanted to have the characters have an age gap and I wanted Devin to have just come home from war.  They grew from there but not from an inspiration.  I usually have a number of ‘muses’ for a character but in this case I think they were not based on anyone.

What is the perfect setting while writing?
My bedroom with some kind of background noise going on but not too distracting.  It can’t be something on TV that I want to watch.

Favorite comfort food? Why?
NACHOS! Oh wow, can’t think about that now.

  1. I really love the way you write. Very sensitive and emotional. I really loved this excerpt.

  2. Thanks for the interview. I have to write in more of an office setting, otherwise I'd be tempted to curl up for a nap

  3. I agree with the minimal distraction. I like to play one of my favorite movies. One that I've seen a thousand times and don't need to pay attention to. That way when I need a moment I can look up and watch, but when I'm in the zone I won't be distracted. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Nachos, I haven't nachos for years and years. I loved the way my fingers would turn orange and I'd have to clean them by stuffing them in my mouth. Now I have curry spiced butter. (airpopped) Its supposed to be much better for me and probably would be if I hadn't take to pouring Smart Balance butter over it so the curry sticks.

    It seems I cannot help being bad.

    And now to focus on your fabulous book. I've already read it...twice. And it is wonderful. Highly recommend buying it. I love these dragon stories. Great new series.

  7. MMm nachos! I can't believe you didn't say chocolate. But nachos are good, especially with wine. Good luck on your blog tour!

  8. There is something rather special about wolves.
