BLOG TOUR: Predatory by Dianne Duvall

I'm ridiculously excited to have the awesome Dianne Duvall here again today, and she's sharing her idea for the cast of In Still Darkness, her story in the Predatory anthology that just came out! Give her a warm welcome and happy reading! :D


Immortal Guardians Dream Cast

Thank you, Buffy, for letting me visit again! I’m very excited to be here today, celebrating the release of PREDATORY, an anthology that contains my Immortal Guardians novella “In Still Darkness,” along with stories by fabulous authors Alexandra Ivy, Nina Bangs, and Hannah Jayne. “In Still Darkness” features Richart d’Alençon, a two-hundred-and-thirty-year-old immortal warrior who spends his nights hunting and destroying psychotic vampires. Despite the family atmosphere Immortal Guardians cultivate, Richart finds it to be a pretty lonely existence . . . until he meets charming single mother Jenna McBride. Unable to resist her lure, he daringly attempts to carry on a traditional courtship with her while keeping his vampire hunting profession — as well as his immortality — a secret.

If you’re new to my Immortal Guardians series, Richart’s story will give you a glimpse of what you’ll find in the first three books — DARKNESS DAWNS, NIGHT REIGNS, and PHANTOM SHADOWS— as well as those that will follow. (DARKNESS RISES, Book 4, will be released on October 1st). All feature powerful immortal warriors with special gifts who have dedicated themselves to destroying the insane vampires who prey upon humans. Those of you who are already familiar with my Immortal Guardians series will finally “see” the romance that distracted Richart so and was referenced in NIGHT REIGNS and PHANTOM SHADOWS. You’ll also see some familiar faces. One of the greatest perks, I think, of writing a series is not having to say goodbye to the characters with whom I spend so much time. :-)

Now, when I’m not writing, I work in the local independent film industry. And, as I help directors cast their feature film, short film, and music video projects, I admit I often imagine casting my own projects . . . namely film versions of my books. With each book’s release, I rethink my dream cast, adding new characters and tweaking it here and there to tailor it to each story. So, here is my dream cast for “In Still Darkness” in PREDATORY:

Sam Worthington as Richart d’Alençon,
Hero of “In Still Darkness” — PREDATORY

Jennifer Garner as Jenna McBride,
Heroine of “In Still Darkness” — PREDATORY

Kellan Lutz as Sheldon,
Richart’s Second (human assistant/guard)

Chace Crawford as John,
Jenna’s son

Hugh Jackman as Roland Warbrook,

Michelle Monaghan as Sarah Bingham

Eva Green as Lisette d’Alençon,
Richart’s sister

Sam Worthington as Étienne d’Alençon
Richart’s twin and Hero of DARKNESS RISES

Johnny Depp as Marcus Grayden,

Milla Jovovitch as Ami,

Evengeline Lilly as Dr. Melanie Lipton,

Ryan Reynolds as Chris Reordon,
Head of the East Coast division of the human network that aids immortals
