That’s Scott King on Graeme’s cover. The man can MOVE. I love looking at his pictures.
Graeme was an interesting character for me, and still is. He’s not in charge, but by virtue of who he is, how long he’s been around, and what his abilities are, he really should be, but he’s cool with not being, especially since Wade and Trevor treat him like an equal. He’s not a wolf, but he likes the wolves more than he thought he would. They are predators, like he is, and so he understands them.
He was supposed to be this unflappable character who never gets angry … but then he started to care. He didn’t want to care, but Heather gave him something to care about. He never in his life believed he would have his shot at love, at wyrmlings, and now that he does, he’s still counting his blessings. I’m interested to see what happens to him when his baby girl is born. I have an idea that certain worries are going to come to a head for him as she grows. Things he hasn’t been willing to look at in his instinctual joy over Heather’s pregnancy.
I have had a lot of people tell me the lava jizz was something new, that they had never seen that before in a book. If you have, please tell me where in a comment. I have no idea if I made it up or not. Ideas come from everywhere. … Someone said all writers are thieves, and I truly believe that. lol.
I would love to hear your thoughts on Graeme!
