Darkness Falls Character Interview & Giveaway



Today I'm happy to be a part of the blog tour  run by Kismet Book Tours for The Darkness Falls Series by Krystal Wade. Today, the heroine of the series, Katriona is here to tell us about her adventures that take place in book two, Wilde's Army.  One lucky person has a chance to win ebook copies of all three books in the series! Information for the books is at the end of the post!





  1. Katriona can you tell us a bit about what happens to you in this book & how you got there? 
Well, I got to Encardia by accident. I should have known better, following a light through the forest. I probably did everything horror films show us not to do. But once I arrived, I quickly realized everything I'd ever known was a lie; a life meant for someone else, not for me. And even though war ravaged Encardia, I fell for the people and the land and knew I had to stay and help.


  1. What was the most challenging thing you faced?
Finding my place. Being told you're the key to bringing Light to a world smothered in Darkness—well, to a girl raised on a horse farm in Virginia, that's pretty overwhelming.

  1. What was the most fun thing you did?
Fun . . . let me think. Realizing I knew how to swordfight because of the training I experienced in my dreams was pretty cool.

  1. Can you tell us about Perth and Arland? 
When I first met Perth, I thought he was a total creep. He also tried to kill me. But after we worked together to find all the missing Draíochtans, I knew there was more to him than he allowed people to see.
And Arland? He's kind, and smart, and loyal to his people. He's patient and understanding . . . I'm embarrassing myself.

  1. What challenges will you have to face in the future? 
The future. Everyone always asks about the future. I hate not knowing, and I hate that my mother knows everything, but some days, I'd prefer not to think about it. Because I know I have to kill my friend, I know people I've become friends with and love might die, and I know that life will never be the same.

Well, I got to Encardia by accident. I should have known better, following a light through the forest. I probably did everything horror films show us not to do. But once I arrived, I quickly realized everything I'd ever known was a lie; a life meant for someone else, not for me. And even though war ravaged Encardia, I fell for the people and the land and knew I had to stay and help.

There is no pain in this death, only peace, knowing I am going to die with the one I love the most.”- Katriona Wilde
Katriona Wilde has never wondered what it would feel like to have everything she’s ever known and loved ripped away, but she is about to find out.
When she inadvertently leads her sister and best friend through a portal into a world she’s dreamed of for six years, she finds herself faced with more than just the frightening creatures in front of her. Kate’s forced to accept a new truth: her entire life has been a lie, and those closest to her have betrayed her. What’s worse, she has no control over her new future, and it’s full of magic and horrors from which nightmares are made.
Will Kate discover and learn to control who she really is in time to save the ones she loves, or will all be lost?

 "Hello, Katriona.”
Those two words spark fear in Katriona Wilde and give way to an unlikely partnership with Perth, the man she’s been traded to marry for a favor. Saving her true love and protector Arland, her family, and their soldiers keeps her motivated, but the at-odds duo soon realizes trust is something that comes and goes with each breath of Encardia’s rotting, stagnant air. The moment when concern for her missing sister spirals out of control, all thoughts of trust are pushed aside and she finds herself trapped by the daemon tricks Perth warned her of.
However, rescuing those she loves is only half the problem.
Kate still must get to Willow Falls, unite her clashing people, and form an army prepared to fight in order to defeat Darkness. When so many she’s grown fond of die along the journey, her ability to play by the gods’ rules is tested.
How will she make allies when the world appears stacked against her? And will she still be Katriona Wilde, the girl with fire?

Coming Soon:  Wilde's Meadow


Happy endings are hard to find, and even though Katriona is in the middle of a war with someone who’s already stolen more than she can replace, she aches for a positive future with her Draíochtans.
Armed with hope, confidence in her abilities, and a strange new gift from her mother, Kate ventures into the Darkness to defeat a fallen god.
Losses add up, and new obstacles rise to stand in the way. Is the one determined to bring Encardia light strong enough to keep fighting, or will all the sacrifices to stop those who seek domination be for nothing?

  2. I always enjoy character interviews because I get a better sense of the characters. Katriona, I know what you mean when you say you do what horror movies teaches you to do and not do!
