Talking with Rave from Eva Gordon's Raven Moon

Please give a warm welcome to Rave, Princess Ravenna, of the North American Raven Shifter Murder from Raven Moon, Book 2 in the After the Bane series by Eva Gordon today as we sit down and see what makes her tick.

What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not saving the world? Hmm. Besides going to Paris for shopping and dating a species I shouldn’t be dating? I would say fighting our ancestral enemy, the Benandanti or Hound of Gods religious fiends.

What is it about your love interest Maddox that makes you crazy in a good way? His British accent and his hot alpha werewolf godlike musculature. All male, all mine, at least I hope to make him mine. Hard to do when he is my enemy’s top warrior.

Do you sometimes want to strangle your writer? Thrash her/him to within an inch of their life? Make them do the stupid crap they makes you do? Uh, yeah! How long would she last fighting the zombie hordes and the even more sinister tankers.

Favorite food? Lobster and oysters.

Tell me a little bit about your world. What are your greatest challenges in that world? In world gone zombie apocalypse, I would say rescuing humans is the biggest challenge. I’m lucky I’m a shifter because normally zombies don’t come after us, until now.

Describe yourself in four words. Artistic, diva, dark sense of humor, passion-driven.

What do you do for a living? I once thought I would be next in line to the Raven Murder Throne, but now I’m commander of the Avian Intel. My team and I search for survivors.

What do you fear the most? Losing my ability to fly. A raven without wings might as well be dead.

Raven Moon: Excerpt
Maddox scented another shifter a floor above as an ape screamed, pummeling against the door of the trapped shifter. He roared as he used his sharp daggered claws to behead the apes enjoying their meal. He dashed up the stairs.
The female zombie ape slammed into the door, salivating like a rabid dog. Maddox leapt on her and bit into her neck. Like human zombies, it did not react to pain and crawled toward the bathroom. Maddox bit through her spine until her monstrous head rolled off.
He sniffed and saliva sloughed off from his maw. Raven. Female. His inner wolf whined.
Maddox bashed the bathroom door opened. In the corner sat a woman, her left arm in a makeshift sling and a gun dropped far from her reach. Her face was blanched in shock and like birds awaiting death, frozen in a catatonic state. Despite his fierce werewolf appearance, she stared teary-eyed at the door. He could only imagine how despondent she must be, about the horrific death of her kin. No wonder the other ravens had not taken flight. They were protecting her. He cocked his head and gazed at her. His inner wolf wanted to lick her tearstained face. The devil beast inside of him roared, drawn to the forbidden female. Her arousing familiar scent rattled his soul.
Maddox lowered his muzzle and sniffed, clarifying her scent. She snapped out of her stupor and lifted her head. Her deep purple eyes met his. “Maddox, you remember me, right?”
His eyes widened and his nostrils flared.  How could he forget that insolent little tart? A raven temptress, who enjoyed the company of wolves more than her kind. He swallowed a thick string of saliva and whimpered. Now what was he to do?
