Happy Release Day for Jennifer L. Armentrout. Today the final book in her epic Covenant series releases, Sentinel.
The series follows a teen by the name of Alex. Alex is a half-blood demigod, living in a world where the halfs are worth much less than the pures. She must prove herself as a fighter, to be part of the Sentinels, or she will be forced into inescapable servitude. She soon finds out that she has more powers than she would have previously ever known and that she could have the power to change the world she lives in, if others don’t destroy it first.
Jennifer is also the author of MANY MANY other novels too, such as her sci-fi romance series, the Lux series, The Dark Elements series, and also writes romance novels and other fantasy novels under the pseudonym of J. Lynn.
She’s an absolutely amazing author, and I really enjoy reading her novels. I first discovered her when I read the Lux series back in May. I blew threw the first three books and eagerly awaited the fourth novel, which was released back in August. I am very excited to read the 5th book, Opposition, when that hits stands. It took me awhile to get into her Covenant series but I am SO glad I did. I am so ready for the release of Sentinel today, and to find out how this epic series ends.
There’s even MORE exciting things happening as well! Obsidian, the first novel of the Lux series, has been optioned to become a feature film, while the Covenant series has been optioned to be a TV show! Can’t wait to see how both of these unfold!
For now, let’s enjoy this short, but fun interview with Jennifer, herself.
Sara: Where did you get the idea or inspiration for the Covenant series?
Jennifer: I have always been interested in mythology, and I just really wanted to write a book that incorporated some aspects of mythology into the story.
Sara: How excited are you for the Covenant TV series and what are your hopes and expectations for it?
Jennifer: I am so excited about seeing Alex, Aiden and Seth on a TV series. I know that Herrick Entertainment is going to do a great job bringing the world of the Covenant series to TV.
Sara: What is your writing process like: do you treat it like an 8-5 job or do you write when you feel inspired?
Jennifer: I write every day for 8-10 hours, even on holidays. But I don’t necessarily write from 8-5. I usually write a different times throughout the day.
Sara: What is the hardest part of writing a novel: the outline, the beginning, the middle, the end, the characters, etc?
Jennifer: After I get started on a new book, the hardest part is usually the middle for me. I will skip around if I get stuck, and then go back after I’ve written some other scenes.
Sara: What are you working on right now, and what can we expect in the near future?
Jennifer: I’m currently working on a new YA contemporary, The Problem with Forever, for Disney/Hyperion. Then, I’ll be writing the fifth book in the Lux series, Opposition.
Sara: Bonus question that I ask everyone I interview, who is your fictional crush?
Jennifer: Tod from Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamer series
