Baculum

(Angelbound Lincoln #4)
Published by: Monster House Books
Publication date: January 26th 2021
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Watch Lincoln battle Norse monsters in the Viking Games!

As King of the Thrax, Lincoln leads the most powerful demon fighting force in the after-realms… yet he cherishes nothing more than his Angelbound love, Myla. Which is why the king loses his freaking mind when the sinister Ringmaster Kell targets his pregnant wife.

So. Not. Happening.

Ringmaster Kell runs the infamous Viking Games, a series of battles where participants take on the identity of a Norse monster and fight to the death. Sounds good to Lincoln. The king sets aside his crown and enters the arena with one goal only: destroy Ringmaster Kell.

Sometimes, a warrior just needs to ignite his baculum sword and kick a ton of evil ass. But is Lincoln protecting Myla or walking into a trap?

Perfect for readers who love Vikings, Norse mythology, hot princes and cool heroines.

Interview – Christina Bauer, Author

 

 

  1. I’m curious about this beautiful cover. Can you tell me a little about it?

When I directed the artist to create the cover art, I thought the book would be set in a circus and the dragon would be the final act. The style of the magma dragon was inspired by the Balrog in the movie version of The Two Towers (Lord of the Rings).

 

  1. Did anything unforeseen or unusual happen when writing Baculum?As I said, I started off having the book be set in a supernatural circus. All the antagonists were evil clowns. My husband convinced me that was scary as fuck, so I changed it to the Viking Games and replaced the evil clowns with Norse monsters. Totally owe my husband for that one!

 

3.Could you name any book or other work that had an influence on this novel or series?

I studied the Asian story of Rama back in college, and it always struck me how it began with Rama and Sita being married. It really intrigued me since Western stories often end with marriage. I love the idea of following a couple through the adventures of life. BACULUM focuses on the challenges of expecting a child.

 

  1. Who’s your favorite character in the novel and why?

I really like the ‘big bad’ in this book. He’s a dark elf from the Norse Universe who is named Kell. It took me a while to find his backstory, but I’m very happy with how it ties in with the theme of parents and children.

 

  1. If you were to create a fancast for the characters, who would you pick?

Myla Lewis. She’s the one I know best!

 

  1. What kind of reader do you think would enjoy Baculum?

If you like quirky storytelling, urban fantasy and strong heroines, then this is for you!

 

  1. Can you tell me a little more about the series Angelbound Lincoln?

It tells stories from the point of view of Myla’s angelbound love, prince Lincoln.  The stories focus more on his world of demon fighting thrax.

 

  1. What attracts you to writing angels and demons and what’s your approach when writing them?

I grew up Roman Catholic and loved learning about angels, demons and saints. Guess I got a little stuck in that head space!

 

Author Bio:

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. Christina lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby. She loves to connect with her fans at BauersBooks.com.
