Welcome to my stop for the Quanta Blog Tour! This tour is organised by Sparkle Book Tours. Enjoy my interview with Quanta's author, Ms. Lola Dodge and the exclusive Characters bio down below! (Look forward for my review on Quanta soon,  13th October 2015)

Just because Quanta can see the future doesn’t mean she can change it. She’s spent most of her life imprisoned, feeding her captors information to keep herself alive, but she’s finally reached the endgame and her death creeps closer by the moment.

The son of two senators, Altair Orpheus leads a life of privilege that provides the perfect cover for his side job: working with the rebel Shadow Ravens to undermine the ruling Seligo government. Everything is running like clockwork until he crosses paths with Quanta. As he watches her deftly maneuver through life in a perverse prison, his plastic heart melts. A jailbreak would be suicide, but Tair is willing to sacrifice everything to give her a chance at happiness.

Now Quanta senses a terrifying new future brewing. She and Tair are bound together, but every image of them kissing, snuggling, and acting knee-weakeningly happy is balanced by a much darker possibility. They’ll be picture perfect together, but only until time rips them apart. How can she follow her heart when she’s seen how their love plays out?

Get to know more about the characters! The amazing Lola Dodge had also attached her dream cast so we have a picture of what they're supposed to look like ;)

Hair: Long, black (usually tangled)
Eyes: Gray
Helix color: Red (unstable)
Family: (?)
Likes: Sweets, drawing (mostly with charcoal), VR games, elephants
Dislikes: The Seligo, captivity, Darren Waldman
Bio: Quanta was an experiment gone wrong (or right?). She was kidnapped from a lab at birth and raised by Lady Eva and the rebel Shadow Ravens, but she was too valuable to be left alone for long. At ten, she was captured again, and she’s lived the past ten years in captivity. Her unstable DNA gives her the power to see the past and the future. That alone would make her insanely powerful, but her abilities are still evolving… And the Seligo are trying to dig the information out of her any way they can.

Altair Orpheus (Tair)
Hair: Dark
Eyes: Brown/gold
Helix color: Green (science)
Family: Parents Rashad and Mei-Lin Orpheus. Sister Cassiopeia Orpheus.
Likes: Independence
Dislikes: The Seligo, mindless parties, being betrayed
Bio: Altair is elite in every sense of the word. His parents (both senators) basically picked his traits from a catalog and he was trained from birth to be exceptional. He was on the path to fulfilling his promise when an accident changed his point of view. Now he works for the rebel Shadow Ravens, using his research and family connections to dig deeper into the inner circles of government research.

Lola Dodge mentioned that Tair is supposed to be a mix of David Henney, Will Demps, Marlon Teixiera and Clint Mauro. Which makes him really hot, unique and hard to be cast, use your imagination ;)

And a bonus side character since she got lots of love in the previous reviews...

Cassiopeia Orpheus
Hair: Dark curls
Eyes: Violet
Helix color: None
Family: Parents Rashad and Mei-Lin Orpheus. Brother Altair Orpheus.
Likes: Programming, energy drinks, pizza, trapping idiots in VR room escape games
Dislikes: Helixes, sunlight, her parents
Bio: Cassie is tech genius who’s never fit into the system. She designs games and VR helmets, and spends as much time as possible locked in her workroom. Although she’s not so oblivious that she hasn’t noticed her brother, Tair, acting suspicious. He’s definitely up to something.

She earned her BA in English from Stonehill College and MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University—and hasn’t stopped moving since. When she’s not on the road, Lola spends her time indoors where the sunlight can’t melt her, writing or bingeing on anime and cherry soda. She can be summoned in a ritual involving curry, Hello Kitty idols, and a solid chocolate pentagram.

Please tell us a little bit about your soon-to-be released book!

Quanta is the second book in the Shadow Ravens series, which I co-write with Aileen Erin and Christina Bauer. Each of us writes one hero and heroine. My characters are Altair Orpheus and Quanta. We get to know them as they meet and see a totally different part of the world than you saw if you read Cipher (Book One by Aileen Erin).

What is your main inspiration to write this book?

My answer would usually be really different, but in the case of the Shadow Ravens, I was asked to join the writing team at Ink Monster : ) The three of us authors have brainstormed this project together for years now, so the inspiration is a crazy mish-mash of our influences.

Some authors consider their main protagonist to be a mirror of themselves (personality wise), Can you see yourself in Quanta herself or any other characters in the book?

We definitely have some similarities! Her sweet tooth and competitive streak are very much me, but I’m not nearly as resilient as Quanta. I would’ve given up a long time ago in her situation, and she’s definitely more calculating than I am. She has to be to survive! I also share a bit with Cassiopeia—the hero’s sister—who just wants to sit in the dark staring at her computer monitors. Although I think anyone who loves indoor hobbies like reading and gaming is going to love Cass ; )

What aspect of Quanta, do you think is going to attract the reader the most?

Probably her sense of humor in the face of everything she’s up against. She’s extremely realistic about her situation—she has to be, when she keeps seeing futures where she dies!—but concentrates on doing what she can in the moment instead of dreading things she can’t stop.

Who’s your favourite character from this book and why?

Quanta! I think she’s the most entertaining both to read and write. I do like the supporting cast a lot though. I hope I get the chance to show more of them in the next books!

Anything you want to say to the readers?

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you’ll check out the whole Shadow Ravens series!
