Welcome to today’s stop in the Autumn Rose Blog Tour! Today’s post features a guest post from author Abigail Gibbs.

Today I have two character profiles for you to enjoy.

Character Prince Fallon:

Name: His Royal Athenean Highness Prince Fallon.

Age: 17.

Occupation: Prince/Student.

Physical Description: Tall, tanned (though the English weather isn’t helping with that one, you know), with the Athenean blue-blood eyes and their reddish, swirling, vein-like Sagean scars across the right side of his body.

Likes: Freedom; politics; dancing at court.

Dislikes: The Athenea’s enemy, the Extermino; paparazzi.

Relationship Status: Single.

Typical Friday Night: Inner council meeting, dinner with ambassadors from other dimensions, socialising at court and dancing.

Drink of Choice: Obviously law-abiding princes don’t touch alcohol underage. (Ice-cold beer. Lots of it).

Favorite Food: Sugar, on anything.

Favorite Song: Black Parade by Globus.

Choice of Transportation: Flying!

Best Memory to Date: His father, King Ll’iriad, saying how proud he was of his son’s first council meeting, which he attended at 16.

Words to live by: The fas, or basic principles of a Sage: the wielding of energy; preservation of the balance of nature; courtesy in respect to rank; loyalty to Athenea; strict adherence to the Terra Treaties.

Character Autumn Rose:

Name: Autumn Rose Al-Summers, Duchess of England.

Age: 16 – just!

Occupation: Student and Guardian (protector) of a human school.

Physical Description: Quite short but with that-must-be-a-corset curves. Blonde hair and golden Sagean scars across her right side.

Likes: Privacy; dresses; dancing; Inter-Dimensional politics.

Dislikes: Interfering, nosy idiots; flat shoes; ignorant humans.

Relationship Status: Single.

Typical Friday Night: Working a part-time job at a café; surfing the internet and papers for news of what is going on at the Athenean court; ignoring parents; emailing friends studying abroad.

Drink of Choice: The highly, highly illegal (unless you’re a vampire) human blood shooter.

Favorite Food: Tomatoes.

Favorite Song: Just one? Fate by Selectracks; Human Hostage by the Sagean band Leeches – because who doesn’t like an anti-establishment song about a girl kidnapped by vampires?

Choice of Transportation: Flying!

Best Memory to Date: Being admired at court, age 12, and realising just how much power the Al-Summers family wielded.

Words to live by: 

“Where are the song of Spring? Ay, where are they?

Think not of them, thou hast thy music too…”

– John Keats Ode To Autumn

Autumn Rose has the chance to save the world she loves. But how much will she have to sacrifice?

Autumn Rose lives in a sleepy seaside town, but buried deep under the surface of her quiet life are dark secrets. Her grandmother is dead, murdered eighteen months ago, and the vibrant London social scene in which she was brought up is a world away. Even worse, at her new school she is shunned and condemned––all because of the swirling marks on her skin that prevent her from blending in with the crowd.

Then the appearance at her school of a handsome young man—who has the same curious markings as Autumn—sends her world into turmoil. Suddenly the marks are deemed cool, and Autumn is thrust into the limelight. But her sudden popularity brings danger as her secrets threaten to come to light. And then there are her recurring dreams about a girl who is about to be seduced by a very dark prince . . . and Autumn must figure out how to save her before it is too late.


About The Author


Abigail Gibbs was born and raised in deepest, darkest Devon. She is currently studying for a BA in English at the University of Oxford and considers herself a professional student, as the real world is yet to catch up with her. Her greatest fear is blood and she is a great advocate of vegetarianism, which logically led to the writing of her first novel, Dinner With A Vampire. At age fifteen, she began posting serially online under the pseudonym Canse12, and after three years in the internet limelight, set her sights towards total world domination. She splits her time between her studies, stories and family, and uses coffee to survive all three.

    I haven’t started this series yet, but I need to! I laughed at the “sugar, on anything” answer. The books sound so intriguing.
