Blog Tour: Meet Chase Finn (Chasing Freedom, Nicola S. Dorrington)
Special day today, because guess what? The Blog Tour for Chasing Freedom, by Nicols S. Dorrington, is officially being kicked off, today!

*releases confetti*

And I am officially handing the reins to Nicola and the main character of her novel, Chase Finn. I'm fairly certain that Miss Dorrington doesn't bite, but be wary; I can't caution the same thing for Mr. Finn.


So I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce the world to Chase Finn, the main character from my new novel Chasing Freedom. I think people might like him!

He first came into my head over 9 years ago. I didn’t know much about him back then, other than that he was a hulking 17-year-old werewolf, who was a little bit cocky, fun-loving, charming and good-looking…

You think I'm good-looking?

You know you’re good-looking, now go and sit down and be quiet. Where was I? He took shape quite slowly. He was tall, muscular, from a good family, played rugby…

Hey, I don't just play rugby, I was Captain of my school team.

Shush. All right, very good at rugby. I knew he had to have had a good childhood, a good life. I wanted to turn the typical trope on its head a little. This wasn’t a guy who was a loner, or who didn’t fit in and whose life is turned around in a good way by finding out he’s a supernatural. This was a guy who had the perfect life, only to have it be destroyed by becoming a werewolf.

Too right it was destroyed. I lost everything, my friends, my home my family.

But you got a new one. But the most important thing I wanted was for Chase to be more than just a werewolf. I didn’t want that to be the all defining characteristic of him. He is so much more than that.

Are you going to tell them about Victoria?

No. That would be a spoiler. They’ll have to read the book to find out about her.

What about Maladict? Anna? Kat? Are you going to tell them about them? They're pretty important.

Spoilers. If I give too much away they won’t read the book. 

So what are you going to tell them?

Only this:

Chase Finn is being hunted, and if he ever stops running he’s going to end up dead.

It doesn’t matter that he’s only seventeen. It doesn’t matter that just a few weeks ago he was a normal teenager. All that matters is that he is a threat, and the Agents tracking him will stop at nothing to see him neutralised.

With the line between friends and enemies blurring, Chase discovers he is just a pawn in the middle of a war that’s lasted for centuries, but he isn’t going to let himself be used any longer.

Soon both sides of the war are going to learn that the most important thing about Chase Finn isn’t that he’s a werewolf, it’s that he’ll sacrifice everything, even his own freedom, for the people he loves.
