The Worth of a Blog Tour: Hero's Perspective: Delaney

Hey'a again, everyone! It's another day of the Worth of a King blog tour! Today, I'm super excited because I got to interview my absolute favorite character from Worth: Delaney! I can't wait to share the interview with you . . . but first, a bit about the book and author.

About Worth of a King

Princess Obsidia’s father was killed the night she was born. Since there was no male heir, the crown went to the man who killed him, by Dialcian law. This never bothered her, growing up, and when it comes time for Obsidia to choose her husband, she chooses Prince Delaney, the son of that man, with little hesitation. Only then does her life start crumbling around her.
Adrian expected to live a normal life, taking his father’s place at the print shop when his father retired. But, on his eighteenth birthday, when the princess’ engagement is announced, his world is ripped out from under him when he learns that his life was a ruse, and he is the twin brother to the princess – and expected to take back his father’s throne.
Delaney knows that his country is hovering on the brink of war – and that his father may harbor murderous intentions towards his intended bride due to her Zovordian blood. He wants nothing more than to protect Obsidia and his people, but as merely prince, he has little power against his father.
The ancient war between the Dragons and the Immortal King and Queen is nearing its climax, and the three are already caught in it.

Interview with Delaney

Hello, Delaney! Welcome to Hero’s Perspective! To begin, can you share a little about who you are, what you do, and maybe a random fact or two?

Hello, I'm the Crown Prince of Dialica, and my job mostly entails minimizing the damage that my father does. Random facts - I'm fascinated by politics, much to the amusement of my sister, Nadilynn, and my future wife, Obsidia. Also, I'm not really a fan of spicy foods.

Neither am I, my friend. Next, can you briefly share your thoughts on the other major characters (including the villain)?

Let's see, there are quite a few major characters in this story, but I shall do my best.

Adrian - a good-hearted fellow, and so much like his sister that I'm surprised that fewer people haven't seen it.

Nadilynn - my sister and far too good and innocent and pure for the life she's been trapped in.

The Immortal King and Queen - an inspiration to us all.

My father - I don't ... I don't even know where to begin with him.

Obsidia - I wish more than anything that she could have had a better life.
 
Ah, yes, Speaking of Obsidia, let's zero in on her for a moment. We know that you grew up together, of course, but did you always get along? If not, when did you become friends? And when did you realize that you cared for her as something more than a friend?

Obsidia isn't someone who you don't get along with. She was always as important to me as my sister, Nadilynn. And yet, I didn't realize just how important she was to me until ... until ... I nearly lost her.

Awwww. Ok, so, who would you say influenced you most when you were growing up? In what way?

The Immortal King and Queen. Especially the King. Amber taught me how to rule, but Granite taught me how to respect the power given to me.

That's marvelous. And I do love the interacts I got to see between you and Granite in Worth. Moving on, momentarily: what was the best part of your adventures in Worth of a King? The hardest part? (I understand that you can’t share spoilers, but whatever you can say...)

The hardest part was every time I failed. The best was when it was all over.

I'm sure. Ok, fun question time! If you could have a day off to do whatever you wanted to do, wherever you wanted to do it (no limits on the where; we’ve got portal technology to make it happen!), what would you do and where would you go?

I ... really don't know. I'm not someone to run from my responsibilities, and I have a lot of responsibilities where I am. I would like to see the world that Amber and Granite came from. It must have been so terrifying to be exposed to so much space. I wonder if they were afraid that they'd fall off their world at every moment. I would be...

I can tell you for a fact that you get used to it. Final question: if you could go back to the start of the story and give yourself one piece of advice, would you? And if so, what would you say?


I ... I would. I'd tell myself to not expect myself to be perfect. To expect myself to make mistakes. But that they won't mean that I can't succeed. That ... we can't succeed. Because I'm not the only one in play.

Good advice for us all to keep in mind. Thanks for answering my questions!
