Guest Blog- Revelations: Cast In Blood by Christine Sutton, Lisa Lane, Jaime Johnesee

Coauthoring and Apollyon
Guest Blog by Jaime Johnesee

Firstly, I’d like to thank our kind host for allowing me on their blog today. I’m here to talk about my newest endeavor coauthoring the Revelations series. In this series my coauthors and I create quite an interesting world and some folks have asked how I came up with my character Apollyon, aka Polly. 

Truthfully, the answer is easy, I wanted to write a demonic Amazonesque warrior who was in charge of keeping Hell on a tight leash. I wanted her to be Hell’s second in command who wasn’t afraid to take the reins but didn’t actually want them all the time. 

Okay, so the real hard part is showing all of that yet still making a likeable, and relatable, character. Torture, which Polly does often, is also not easy to show an appealing character doing. I certainly gave it my all and enjoyed every single minute of it.

My character, Apollyon (Polly, to those she doesn’t want to kill.), was an angel. She spoke out against God along with her friend Lucifer and was cast out of Heaven with a whole group of angels that dared to question Him. Lucifer took hold of running Hell and Polly slipped in comfortably as the right hand. She’s held that job for a couple of millennia and enjoys it. 

In the first book Polly has to pull a team together to help her track down a lesser demon who escaped Hell. She winds up working with a succubus, who is embattled with herself over her own nature, and a shapeshifter who has had a rough go of it. As the book progresses their jobs change and encompass more difficult duties. 

One of those duties they must take on is a mission to save Hell and Heaven. As the series progresses the stakes get higher and so does the tension. If you want to know more, I guess you’ll just have to read the books.
