Blog Tour & GIVEAWAY: In the Forests of the Night (Character Interview)

Welcome to today’s stop on The {Teen} Book Scene‘s blog tour for Kersten Hamilton’s In the Forests of the Night, book 2 of The Goblin Wars. I read this a few months ago, and it is fantastic. I loved the characters even more than I did the first time around, and I cannot wait for the next installment! My review is HERE.

Anyway, today’s post is a character interview with Teagan, the main protagonist in the series.


In the Forests of the Night blog tour
Proud Book Nerd: Hello, Teagan. Thanks for joining us today.

Teagan: Thank you for having me, Heather!

PBN: Please tell us about yourself. 
What’s your favorite book?

T: All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot.

PBN: What’s your favorite song?

T: Teardrop, sung by Newton Faulkner.

It reminds me of Finn. If he never once said the words “I love you,” I’d still know by his every action. For Finn, love is a doing word.

PBN: I love that you’re a Chicago girl (because I am, too). What do you like most about Chicago?

T: I like to stand downtown and feel the people and traffic flow around me like the living pulse of the city. I love to walk along Lakeshore Drive when a storm front comes in over the lake, and watch the water turn from blue to dark and moody. And I love the shop window displays along Michigan Avenue at Christmas time. Not the actual Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, though. That is too crowded and busy for me. And of course I love the Field Museum. Mom used to take me there. I’d explore all day while she sketched.

PBN: What do you love most about Finn?

T: He knows exactly who he is, and is comfortable with it.

PBN: Let’s pretend for a moment that goblins aren’t interested in you, and you have a few days to do whatever you want. What would you do?

T: I would take Finn to all of the places I love, and we’d walk and talk. I’ve seen Finn happy, and mischievous. But I’ve ever seen him relaxed. I guess that doesn’t happen much when you’ve been hunted by goblin kind every day of your life.


What a fun interview. I love these answers. Thanks again, Teagan!

About In the Forests of the Night

In the Forests of the NightThe battle against goblinkind continues . . . but which side will Teagan be on?

Teagan, Finn, and Aiden have made it out of Mag Mell alive, but the Dark Man’s forces are hot on their heels. Back in Chicago, Tea’s goblin cousins show up at her school, sure she will come back to Mag Mell, as goblin blood is never passive once awoken. Soon she will belong to Fear Doirich and join them. In the meantime, they are happy to entertain themselves by trying to seduce, kidnap, or kill Tea’s family and friends. Tea knows she doesn’t have much time left, and she refuses to leave Finn or her family to be tortured and killed. A wild Stormrider, born to rule and reign, is growing stronger inside her. But as long as she can hold on, she’s still Teagan Wylltson, who plans to be a veterinarian and who heals the sick and hurting. The disease that’s destroying her—that’s destroying them all—has a name: Fear Doirich. And Teagan Wylltson is not going to let him win. ~ summary from

    Anybody who likes James Herriot’s books is OK by me.

    I now have my third set of:

    All Creatures Great and Small
    All Things Bright and Beautiful
    All Wise and Wonderful

    (the earlier sets became so dog-eared and pages came loose, so they had to be replaced)

    The series is still my go to books when I need to have a laugh and relax from all the trials and tribulations of the day.

    Please enter me in the giveaway as I have read good reviews of In The Forests of the Night.
