New Orleans has been alive with paranormal activity for the last few months. Creatures of the night are coming in and out of the ancient city, searching the world for relics in a mad attempt to close a tear in the veil between worlds they were told only they could repair.

However, they were misled.

On the other side of that veil, dwelling amongst the damned souls of Hell, are the Noir, a brutal race that feeds off the sins of the world, ripping apart those damned for eternity in their need for life and survival.

Ruled by the master of Hell, their task has been laid out for them, and they have other plans for the sacred relics.

interview

I have a fantastically dark story and creatively inspiring author to share with you! I’m Kallie Ross, and Rebecca Ethington is one of the storytellers I’ve worked with on the Supernatural Chronicles. Rebecca wrote The Noir, the conclusion to all the paranormal races overrunning New Orleans. The ruthless creatures and their ice-cold underworld were like nothing I’d read before, in the best way possible! Rebecca has some explaining to do, and I thought it would be fun to give you a glimpse intoThe Noir while I get my answers.

Rebecca, I’d love to know how you came up with the idea to make Hell colder than Antarctica?

I always like to write beyond what people perceive as the norm. And when I thought about what I know about Hell, heat was the number one thing. However, for me, cold is almost worse. When you are cold, it’s hard to move and hard to think. You can keep adding layers, but the chances of you getting warm again is still slim. Then when I began to build the imagery of the world I was creating, it was dark and damp – and the cold just lent itself to that even more. However, in the presence of the devil, the world is warm. And that change made the world so ominous to me. I love it, and I hope the readers do as well.

Your Noir are beautiful, cold-hearted immortals. I can’t help but wonder why you chose to give them sharp teeth?!? (Honestly, I pictured teeth like the vamps in Supernatural!)

One of the other staples of the Hell Mythos are the hounds, but the idea of large dogs roaming and controlling the souls seemed odd to me. When you look at the cover of The Noir it is graced by a beautiful woman, she looks calm and demure, but her eyes are harsh. That is Delia in my mind, and it was that harshness that connected that beautiful girl with those demon hounds and bound them as one. In my mind it’s more than just fangs too, it’s sharp points on every tooth, blood red gums, and dark eyes. I love the imagery of that darkness.

The Noir are solitary creatures, but your main character, Delia, is forced to work with others. Can you give us any clues about how Delia’s relationships with Adrian and Hayden will play out? I’m not very optimistic.

Without giving anything away, so much of how the Noir process the world and their surroundings comes from the types of sins they devour from the souls of the damned. The three of them have had very different jobs, and even different tastes, meaning that what comes next is going to be, shall we say, eruptive. Especially considering the circumstances they find themselves in at the end of The supernatural Chronicles.

I write about an antithetical race of heavenly immortals to your Noir. How do you think one of your hellish beasts would react during an encounter with one of my angelic archers?

I am not sure to be perfectly honest. We have mutating, soul eating, hell hounds – and angelic flying archers. This might actually be a battle that needs to happen, Kallie. We will be in touch.

Do you think there’s an existing line that Delia won’t cross to get her hands on the Devil’s sword?

I don’t think so, Delia is an exceptionally loyal Noir. She sees what her master needs and will not cease in her quest to give that to him. That is shown very much in the choice she makes at the end of The Supernatural Chronicles: New Orleans. That be said, if you pay attention, some very deep things occur to our girl, and some things may be occurring in that demonic mind of hers that might lead her to second guess that loyalty.

I know it’s a stretch, but is there anything you can reveal about where the Noir will go next, or if you plan to write more outside of Dynamis’ Supernatural Chronicles?

I am not sure to be honest. Part of the joy of this project has been working with so many other, amazing authors to develop this story as a whole. A lot of that depends on which city we go to next, and where all of our characters take us.

So, make sure to pick up your copy of the box set and help us decide where we are going, and watch this story unfold and deepen as we continue on.
