When her twin brother falls into a strange coma, sixteen-year-old Chela Prizeon vows to discover her role among these exiles, the royal angels known as the Lost Immortals. 

Chela’s only hope lies with the mysterious, but infuriating leader of a rebel group. But can she trust this boy, someone who can control her dreams and her heart.

Seth (Sam Claflin)

Today we have the chance to interview Seth Alton, leader of the physical training group in Castle Hayne, Hill Burrough #1. Thank you, Seth, for taking a moment out of your valuable time to interview with us today. 

JODIE- Since you just turned eighteen, you were able to join a new class of citizens in Castle Hayne. How do you feel about your family, now that you’re an adult? 

Seth: **chuckles before answering** 

Family? What does that mean? Mine are all either missing, dead, or some combination of both. The Thoughtmaster’s are my family now. 

JODIE- Thoughtmasters? What are they? 

Seth: **smirks** Who doesn’t know what a Thoughtmaster is? They’re the best of the five classes of gifted people that live in Castle Hayne. Masters of the meditative arts. Disciplinarians. We run a camp for bad kids. It’s called Minders Camp. My job is to make sure trainees can handle themselves once they step outside the Great Wall. You never know what ugly thing might get you out there. I also use techniques to…well, just say, I help them get their attitudes right so they can return home. Should I set a slot up for you? I could train you personally, if you like. 

JODIE: Er, no. I’m good. But thanks anyway. So, if you were granted three wishes, what would you ask for? 

Seth: **crosses his legs, raises his left eyebrow, and stares at me a long moment** I don’t really want to answer that question right now. Next one, please. 

JODIE: Okay. How do you fall in love? At first sight? Over a long period? 

Seth: I don’t fall in love. Love is a minefield of magnetic bombs waiting for you to swallow the iron pill. It pulls you in, and then boom! You’re dead. **uncrosses his legs and stares at me** 

JODIE: That's kind of sad you feel that way. How do you decide if you can trust someone? First impressions? Intuition? Do you test the person somehow? Or are you just generally disposed to trust or not to trust? 

Seth: I wonder if I didn’t make myself clear in the previous question. But I’ll humor you this one time. I trusted once, loved once. What did I get in the end? Betrayal. Heartache. Next question, please. 

JODIE: What really moves you, or touches you to the soul? And that’s not the same thing as the love question, by the way. 

Seth: **chuckles and grins with his black-blue eyes** A double-edge sword kind of question. You get me to answer this one, and then you think you can figure out how I’d answer the little wishes question, right? One word, one thing touches my soul. It’s all that matters…power. I intend to have it. And I’ll get it anyway I have to. 

JODIE: When you walk into a room, what do you notice first? Second? 

Seth: Well I’d notice you if you were sitting in there. You have such lovely brown eyes. I could swim in them until the silver moon rises on high next year. 

JODIE: Okay. Thanks, I think. On the other hand, when you walk into a room, what do you expect people to notice about you? 

Seth: Well I don’t know, lovely. If walked into a room which one of my assets would you pay attention to first? **gives me a dimpled grin as I turn red** Are we almost done with these…incredibly fun questions? I have to get back to the Camp. New trainees are arriving shortly. 

JODIE: Of course. Just a couple more. What do you consider your special talent? 

Seth: I make things happen that you wouldn’t believe. Even if you’d just seen it with your eyes all the way open. 

JODIE: What's the worst thing you've ever done? Why? 

Seth: Are you really prepared to hear me answer that question? Take my advice and skip it. 

JODIE: What are you most afraid of? 

Seth: Easy enough. Nothing. 

JODIE: Surely you’d be afraid to lose someone you love. Your ideal mate, for example. Describe her to me. 

Seth: **eyes cloud over and look through me a long moment** She is strong. Not just in body, but in spirit. She can stand me down. That’s not a easy thing to do, in case you haven’t heard. She can pull someone under her spell, or she can destroy them with a glance. And I don’t mean by using magic. I mean just because she is the one. **eyes refocus on me. I’m surprised he answered this one** 

JODIE: Describe yourself to me. 

Seth: I am the alpha and the omega, the original and the doomed. The first of my kind and perhaps the last. Thank you for interviewing me.

  2. I like the agelessness of Angels. Ancient Warriors.

  3. I have always been fascinated by the sacredness and how ancient angels are. I also am interested in their flying ability.
