I’ve had this actor in mind from the beginning for Daron.
Dwayne Johnson – also known as the Rock. I wasn’t a huge fan of him in The Scorpion King but when I saw him in Welcome to the Jungle and then Get Smart it cinched it for me. He has a very familiar look to me with his Samoan heritage and I adore the way he switches from ‘bad/angry face’ to ‘cheesy happy face’. Makes me laugh every time.
Daron is a member of the Griffon Guard and he rides Nesha, a massive two ton Griffon with dark wings that have blue undertones. As a member of the Griffon Guard he is required to work with the General Guard and the Centaur Calvary when necessary and has been trained in various combat methods from a young age. Nesha is Daron’s closest friend and when they have free time they often explore Elion together. Out of all the members of the Griffon Guard he is the most skilled on Griffon back and this is due to the long hours he spends with Nesha.
With a tendency to frown as he thinks Daron can appear quite stern but as anyone close to him knows he loves a good laugh. Being a member of the Griffon Guard can be very intense at times so he enjoys getting away from it all with his friends.
Life at the moment is a little tense as they work toward their ultimate goal of ridding Sytas of the Sorceress Jenviet. The Griffon Guard members are training daily, knowing that it’s only a matter of time before Jenviet attacks. With only one heir to the Thalian line it makes the most sense to attack now. Elena, the Sorceress of Elion and regent to the throne is watching the Signs for they all suggest an ultimate weapon, soon to appear.
The arrival of the four women in Elion threatens the straight forward task of dealing with Jenviet. When Elena had said ‘weapon’ this wasn’t what the men expected. And falling hard for the tiny blonde in the group is not a good idea but would you refuse your soulmate? And is it even possible?
The logical part of Daron’s mind is unsure whether or not to risk a relationship. After all, Jenviet is a foe like no other and the chances of them both surviving the inevitable war is slim.
But from the first moment he set eyes on her, she had his heart and yet, when it comes to the final battle he will have to step back and allow her to defend his world.
Ugh! Trying to write these bloody things without giving away spoilers is freaking hard! I can’t even fathom how I’m going to write the blurb for book two without giving away spoilers – so much happens in it!!
Happy Monday peoples : ) And yay for a short week! We’re going bush (again) this weekend for Easter and our lovely friend Loi is house-sitting for us. So it’s going to be the first dog/child/friend free bush weekend we’ve had in a LONG time. I can’t wait!
