Today I have pleasure in interviewing Cadeyrn the Erlking, a Character from the book Taken by the Huntsman by fellow author Mistral Dawn.

Mistral DawnTakenbytheHuntsmanBOOK DESCRIPTION

Discarded and ignored by those around her for most of her life, Cassie is a lonely human woman struggling to find her place in the world and meaning in her life. Cadeyrn is the Erlking, the leader of the Wild Hunt, a hundreds of thousands of years old Fae who has always known his purpose. He has spent his entire long existence tracking the criminals of Fairie and punishing them for their crimes.
While hunting for the murderer of a child who has escaped to Earth Cadeyrn comes across Cassie and realizes that she is the one that the great mother goddess has designated as his soul mate. He kidnaps her and takes her to his fortress in Fairie to protect her from his many enemies. He knows she will be angry and that he’ll have to work to earn her trust, but he finds his task to be even more challenging than he had thought it would be due to Cassie’s difficulty in opening her heart.
Will Cadeyrn be able to convince Cassie that the bond between them is real and earn her love?

  1. I like that he loves Cassie so much. To know whenever someone is lying would appear to be mostly a blessing but it also must be challenging for Cadeyrn as well.
