Spotlight/Q&A: The Lasaran by Dianne Duvall

Posted April 15, 2020 by Lucy D in Author Interviews, Spotlight / 16 Comments

I am so excited to be talking today with Dianne Duvall about her new spinoff series, The Aldebarian Alliance, which begins with The Lasaran.

Hi, Lucy! Thanks so much for helping me celebrate the launch of my new series. 🙂

I love the twist of this spinoff series. Will other stories be taking us to a galaxy far, far away?

So glad you like it! I’m very excited about it. And other stories will definitely take us far, far away. I’m already having so much fun with this series and am well into writing Book 2. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it.

Like our beloved Immortals, will the newcomers have a variety of abilities?

Yes . . . and you know how much fun those abilities can be. 😉 Since the new series revolves around the entire Aldebarian Alliance, the heroes will hail from multiple planets and have a variety of backgrounds and personalities. All, of course, will adore strong women the way my Immortal Guardians and The Gifted Ones heroes do.

Lisa sounds like a gifted one. How will finding romance with a non-Immortal (non-transformation?) affect her abilities?

Lisa is indeed a gifted one, which I think makes it perfect that she falls in love with Taelon, who was born with special gifts of his own. Those gifts actually bring them together and give them common ground despite their vastly different histories. Lisa’s gift will also help her fit right in with the rest of the members of the Aldebarian Alliance. 🙂

Are we ever going to see you in the wild? Any plans for you to leave David’s basement to meet the fans?

I don’t know. I’m having an awful lot of fun in David’s basement. 😉 But I have been thinking more and more of venturing out, so I can definitely foresee some forays into the wild in my future.

Thank you, Dianne, for stopping by. After falling in love with each in every story in your Immortal Guardian series, I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in this next series.

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?
