Blog Tour- SACRIFICE by Cindy Pon An Interview & Giveaway!

Hey y'all! I am stoked to be hosting a spot on the blog tour for SACRIFICE by Cindy Pon! I freaking LOVE this fantasy series! I have an interview with Cindy to share with you today. Check it out & make sure to enter the giveaway!

Sacrifice, the sequel to Serpentine, plunges Skybright into the terrifying underworld where demons are bred and whisks her up to the magnificent Mountain of Heavenly Peace where the gods dwell. 

Stone is stripped of his immortal status and told to close hell's breach, which mysteriously remains open, threatening mortals. 

Zhen Ni, Skybright's former mistress and friend, has been wed to the strange and brutish Master Bei, and finds herself trapped in an opulent but empty manor. When she discovers half-eaten corpses beneath the estate, she realizes that Master Bei is not all that he seems. 

As Skybright works to free Zhen Ni with the aid of Kai Sen and Stone, they begin to understand that what is at risk is more far-reaching then they could ever have fathomed.

Now on to the interview!

Hi Cindy! First I want to say welcome back to Two Chicks on Books! SACRIFICE was absolutely fantastic and I can’t wait for everyone to read it! And am so happy that you could stop by for a visit!

Cindy: It is such a pleasure to be here! Thank you for having me!!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about SACRIFICE and the characters?

While Serpentine was told only from Skybright's point of view, Sacrifice actually incorporates a trio of narratives: Skybright, Zhen Ni, and Kai Sen. Skybright is a very practical handmaid until she discovers she is actually a half serpent demon of lore. In this book, she really comes into her own. Zhen Ni is a spoiled rich girl, but shows her true grit when she's married off to a brute of a husband with too many secrets. And Kai Sen is our reluctant hero, with too many secrets of his own!

I know there’s a third book in the series do you have a title yet?

I am awful at titles! No title yet, although I have the barest inkling of the story.

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?

I love Stone. But in Sacrifice, I found Zhen Ni a lot of fun to write. She's stubborn and sassy. Kai Sen was the hardest character for me! I had to really get to know him through the prose. But in the end, I think I did!

What is your favorite passage/scene in SACRIFICE?

Tough call as I love the entire book! But likely the scenes that take place on high where the Immortals dwell. :)

What kind of research did you have to do for the story?

This is the fourth book I have written set in the Kingdom of Xia, so much of the research I had already done. But for this one in particular, I studied Chinese houses, their layouts and the rituals involved in building them.

Who is your ultimate book boyfriend?

I seem to love thieves: Leigh Bardugo's Kas, Megan Whalen Turner's Gen, and Cinda Williams Chima's Han.
