If you're just starting here, you're on step number nine, so make sure you swing back through and visit Stops 1-8. As my part of the hunt, I'm hosting the lovely and talented Sharon Hinck. Sharon is the author of multiple great books, including The Restorer's Son, now rereleased in the expanded edition!
Here's the lowdown on the book:
Chosen to save a people.
Called to serve an enemy.
Cast out by those he trusts and preferring to cross swords with the One rather than yield to His will, Kieran flees to enemy Hazor, only to find that the One knows no borders. Pursued by his calling, Kieran finds a boy without a home, a king with burning questions, and a nation torn by darkness. As he embraces the tasks the One has set before him, this new Restorer learns that the One requires his all—perhaps even his life. The original version was the winner of a Carol Award for Speculative Fiction. This new expanded edition includes a devotion guide, bonus scenes, and other great extras to immerse the reader in the world on the other side of the portal.
A SCAVENGER HUNT EXCLUSIVE FROM SHARON, AN INTERVIEW WITH KIERAN:
Sharon: Thanks for sitting down with me today for a chat.
Kieran (rolls eyes and sulks): Just get on with it.
Sharon: I'd think you'd have a little appreciation. You were only supposed to be a minor character in The Restorer, and ended up getting to be a protagonist of your own story in The Restorer's Son.
Kieran (scowls): I didn't ask for that.
Sharon (grins): That was the point, wasn't it? You encountered several callings that you didn't plan for.
Kieran: And I pride myself on planning for anything. Are we done now?
Sharon: Put your bootknife away and have some clavo. Readers have questions for you.
Kieran: Got any fermented orberry juice instead?
Sharon: Later. Here's my first question. When Tristan first found Susan, you offered to “get rid of her” for him. Would you have really killed her?
Keran: Of course. The stakes were high enough. The clans were falling apart, the Council was corrupt. She could have caused all sorts of trouble.
Sharon: Weren't you even a little awed when you witnessed the Restorer signs for yourself?
Kieran (shifts in his chair): Myths and prophecies never helped me before.
Sharon: Maybe because you spent most of your life running from the One?
Kieran (narrows his eyes): Have you been talking to Linette? That's not a topic I agreed to discuss.
Sharon: But many of the readers related to your spiritual journey. They want to know more.
Kieran (rests hand on sword hilt): Then they can read the book.
Sharon: Fair enough. One more question. I know you've tried to hit it, but you're really sweet on Linette, aren't you?
(sound of sword being drawn)
Sharon (ducking and running from the room): Kieran, thanks for participating in this scavenger hunt interview, and for keeping The Restorer's Son so interesting.
