Author Interview- Dianne Duvall- The Lasaran

Hi Dianne! This new book, The Lasaran, looks like it is going to be amazing and I personally can’t wait to dive in!

Thank you! I had a LOT of fun writing it, so I hope you’ll enjoy it. Kirsten Potter is narrating, and she always does such a phenomenal job that I admit I can’t wait to listen to it myself.

1. Let’s ask a beginning question for everyone that isn’t going to be diving into the audiobook, narrated by the amazing Kristen Potter. How do you pronounce Taelon and Aldebarian?

Taelon is pronounced TAY-luhn. And Aldebarian is pronounced all-deh-BAR-ian. :-)

2. This is obviously going to be a series falling under the title Aldebarian Alliance, will it be an ongoing series, or will it be limited to a few books or is that something you can’t possibly know yet?

This will definitely be an ongoing series. So many stories from it are coming to me and demanding to be told that I’ve already started writing Book 2. But each novel will be a stand-alone title with its own happily-ever-after ending. Each one will also feature the same action, humor, and romance that readers find in my Immortal Guardians and The Gifted Ones books.

3. The Lasaran will follow Taelon, who is Ami’s (from The Immortal Guardians) brother. We got a small glimpse of him in Death of Darkness. With the exception of that sibling connection, how intertwined will the series be with The Immortal Guardians series?

You’ll likely see the most crossover in this first book, which sets the stage for the rest of the series. You’ll see a little more in Book 2, which will feature a certain Immortal Guardian as the heroine. But audiobook lovers don’t have to listen to the Immortal Guardians books to enjoy the Aldebarian Alliance series.

4. What is your release schedule going to be like now? Will you be releasing several Aldebarian Alliance books in a row or will there be an alternating release schedule?

I’ll be alternating. The next book I release will be an Immortal Guardians novel. Then Book 2 in the Aldebarian Alliance series will follow. I plan to release another Immortal Guardians book after that, then will see what follows. :-)

Dianne, thank you so much for popping in and letting us know what is happening! I can’t wait to read this amazing new series!

Thank you so much for helping me celebrate the big release! I hope you’ll enjoy Taelon and Lisa’s story.

The Lasaran
Book #1 Aldebarian Alliance
By Dianne Duvall
April 21, 2020

New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall brings readers the first novel in a thrilling new sci-fi romance series full of action, intrigue, humor, and happily-ever-afters.

Taelon searches the galaxy for his younger sister, who mysteriously disappeared while on a diplomatic mission. When an ally reveals that she was seized and is being held prisoner on Earth, Taelon descends upon the blue planet, intent on freeing her and exacting vengeance. However, all does not go as planned. Before he can find her, Taelon is captured and becomes the subject of torturous experiments. For what feels like an eternity, all he knows is pain and fury… until a mind tentatively touches his own and a woman’s voice forever changes his world.

After suffering tragic losses, Lisa is finally beginning to carve out a future for herself when chance sends her to the Anomalous Cognition Research Institute. What at first appears to be a benign organization seeking participants for a psychic study instead turns out to be a government facility harboring a much darker intent. Lisa discovers this too late and soon becomes the unwilling subject of a terrifying experiment. Just as fear and desperation threaten to consume her, a deep, compelling voice penetrates the looming insanity and lends her hope.

Having seen only the worst of humanity, Taelon is shocked when Lisa risks everything to free him. Together the two make their escape, and Taelon finds himself fascinated by the small human woman who—despite all she’s suffered—can still laugh and tease and lure smiles from him. Friendship swiftly grows between them as they work together to evade soldiers intent on capturing them and find themselves hunted by mystifying preternatural beings. Through it all, Lisa steadfastly remains by his side, stealing more of his heart each day while she helps him unravel the mystery of his sister’s fate. Can they find his sister before the hunters find them? If they survive their quest, will Taelon have to bid Lisa farewell… or can he coax her into leaving her planet and joining him for the adventure of a lifetime?
