How did you come up with the idea for the story?
Given that the moment of the story finds Georgiana and her friends in a more routine and calm time of their lives, I wanted to show some of society’s issues. This gave me the opportunity to expand the were universe, as there’s the addition of insects. Besides showing the issues that arise from the merger, I also wanted personal conflicts.
Which is your favorite character? Why?
Sora and Ava have small turns where they shine, and even if they both try to keep low profiles, they are two of my favorite moments in the whole series.
Would you change anything in the novel?
I don’t think so; I like the fact that the Five are united and that they get to spend more time together; besides, I think that the background mystery is well built regarding the impact it has on the society, as well as its resolution, and I feel that there are two rhythms in the novel that complement each other.
How would you sum up the book in a sentence?
The Five are involved in society’s politics and the consequences have more impact than they could have imagined.
