Blog Tour: Q and A with Janella Angeles

I am so excited to be part of the blog tour for Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles. I was fortunate enough to be able to ask her a few questions about the book to get everyone excited to read it when it releases on August 25th. 

This book is a must read if you are a fan of Moulin Rouge and Phantom of the Opera!

If you haven't heard about this book already here is the official synopsis:
In a city covered in ice and ruin, a group of magicians face off in a daring game of magical feats to find the next headliner of the Conquering Circus, only to find themselves under the threat of an unseen danger striking behind the scenes.

As each act becomes more and more risky and the number of missing magicians piles up, three are forced to reckon with their secrets before the darkness comes for them next.

The Star: Kallia, a powerful showgirl out to prove she’s the best no matter the cost

The Master: Jack, the enigmatic keeper of the club, and more than one lie told

The Magician: Demarco, the brooding judge with a dark past he can no longer hide

Where Dreams Descend is the startling and romantic first book in Janella Angeles’ debut Kingdom of Cards fantasy duology where magic is both celebrated and feared, and no heart is left unscathed.
Janella answered three questions for me as part of the tour. I get her to dish on what would be included in a signature drink and talk about some of the music that reminds her of the book.

If someone were to design a signature drink for Where Dreams Descend what would be included in it?

Okay I LOVE this question. This is so random, but I would love to include dry ice in the drink. It creates this lush, smoky effect that is so reminiscent of Phantom of the Opera (boat ride through the sewers, anyone?) but also could vibe with the mystery and glam of Where Dreams Descend! Flavor-wise, I feel like a drink with cherry, ginger, and a hint of cinnamon would taste like perfection. 

This is inspired by Moulin Rouge. Music is a huge part of that movie, and seems to play a huge role in your book as well. What song reminds you of Where Dreams Descend?

This is a tough one, as there are SO many songs I’ve had on repeat while working on this book. Surprisingly, if I had to choose, it would have to be Your Song. The heart of Where Dreams Descend carries a love story that has so much of the earnestness and yearning and sense of discovery I hear in this song. Every time I hear it, I think of the characters who slowly start to fall in love in the book, almost catching them by surprise as much as Christian and Satine. Also, the number itself in the movie is such a beautiful, sweeping feast for the eyes which is on brand for the book, too.

What gif do you feel accurate represents Where Dreams Descend?

I found this gif of a shot from Moulin Rouge the Musical, and it STILL blows my mind how much it looks like a scene right out of Where Dreams Descend. So magical, very beautiful. Much  Kallia.
