Before I get to the meat of my post, I wanted to let you know the first book of the Sanctum series by Madhuri Blaylock has 62 reviews on Amazon for an average review of 4.6. Wow!

Because I know you’re going to want to buy the books after you read the character interview, the Amazon link is here. For Kindle Unlimited subscribers both books are free. 

Now that the important links are out of there way. Here is the character interview I did with Wyatt, a Class A Sanctum Warrior. Is it just me or does that title sound really sexy?

Constance: Tell us a little about The Sanctum and your involvement (if you
can).
Wyatt: The rote answer, the one we all
learn from age ten: The Sanctum is an organization, created by the gods to
maintain the peace amongst Magicals and keep humans in the dark about all
things “other.” The real answer, the one I’ve finally come to grips with and
accepted, is that we are an organization run amok,  created to be peacekeepers, evolved into
sadistic monsters.
My “involvement” is not by choice
– I’m a descendent of one of the Founding Families of The Sanctum, my parents
run The New York Academy, and up until a little while ago, it was assumed I
would one day take over for them. I mean, that’s what The Sanctum’s most
brilliant Class A Warrior does with himself, no? These days, my agenda and that
of The Sanctum’s doesn’t seem to be that great a fit…
Constance: Do you have any life mantras or code that you live by?
Wyatt: I look at my life and see it like
so: there was my life before Dev and my lift after Dev. Ryker likes to call it
“Wyatt BD” and “Wyatt AD” and even though he’s making fun of me, giving me a
hard time like only he can do, it’s true.
I think before Dev, everyone
would tell you that my life mantra was “Rule with honor and peace” – The
Sanctum’s motto, and one people assumed I blindly followed. But that could not
be further from the truth. Just because I don’t wear my motives and agendas on
my sleeve, that I don’t air my grievances and disdain for all to hear, does not
mean I’m a mindless follower and don’t have my own code of honor.
My life mantra remains the same,
before and after meeting Dev: at all costs, protect those I love.
 
Constance:  Explain
this thing you have with your buddy Ryker, seem like there’s some serious
bromance action going on.

Wyatt: Ha! I don’t know what it is about
our relationship, it’s been the topic of much conversation since Ryker first
came to The Academy to train. We were paired together  from day one and in the beginning, I think
people felt bad for him, what with my folks running The Academy and all, but
that was short-lived. We clicked right away and then began all the talk of how
my parents should not have let us become so close, so dependent upon one
another. Lots of whispering that Class A Warriors don’t act like us, don’t
carry themselves the way we do, so intertwined with one another, suggestive
whispering and all kinds of nonsense, but it really made no difference because
I don’t think we know any other way to be with each other.
What you see is what you get. And
don’t get me wrong – we seethe and bicker and fight. It’s not all perfect and
easy. There have been some moments of serious pain, some hard core brawls, but
they mean nothing. We always move past them.
Maybe the best way to explain it
is that Ryker’s really my better self. I think that’s why I love him so much.
He’s who I strive to be, who I wish I had the nerve to be. I don’t know that I
could love or respect anyone more than I do him. And I don’t know what my life
would be like without him. 
Constance: So Wyatt, what’s your deal with that supernatural ladies? You seem
to have a thing for them.

Wyatt: (Laughs and spits out his coffee)
I think you’re confusing me with Ryker, who up until recently, had a long line
of very beautiful trolls, vampires, fairies, warriors, really anyone with
breasts, moving in and out of his life. I am hardly the ladies man.
Now that you mention it, I will
admit, the girls I’ve spent time with aren’t my fellow warriors, which is a
violation of probably all kinds of Sanctum rules, but it is what it is.
Constance:   What’s the best thing about being Class A
Sanctum Warrior?
Wyatt: I’m not sure I can answer that
anymore – it’s hard to say there’s anything so great about it. It’s a premier
status within an organization that has lost its way – it’s become quite
difficult to wear it with pride. Once upon a time, we were the greatest of
warriors, sent out on the most difficult, dangerous, and important assignments.
Now, we’re tools of our leaders, furthering their various agendas. It’s been a
rather eye-opening and demoralizing experience – all of this revelation.   
Constance:   You have some nasty decisions to make, any
chance of giving us a glimpse of what to expect from you in The Boy?

Wyatt: I made certain decisions that
have unforeseen repercussions, for myself and those involved. Those decisions
place me on a path of rebirth and self-discovery that’s savage, lonely, and at
times just plain cruel, but also very necessary. I find myself questioning much
of what I believed to be true, learning a lot about myself, and ultimately
coming to terms with my place in the world. Kind of…

Wyatt sounds dreamy…. I know I’m too old for him, but whatever.  Here is the complete book blurb…

Plot Summary:

The Sanctum, an all-powerful governing body founded by ten
families, entrusted to maintain the peace amongst Magicals and ensure the
ignorance of humans, has been corrupted by greed and savagery for generations,
but is all Wyatt Clayworth has ever known.
A descendant of one of the Founding Families and Class A
Warrior, Wyatt has always believed in the ways of The Sanctum, having grown up
in the system and thrived under their leadership. A golden boy, renowned for
his prowess and skill in battle, Wyatt has never questioned a mission or kill
order until the night he crosses paths with a brutally injured and mysterious
girl.
Scouring Central Park with his best friend and fellow Class
A Warrior, Ryker Morrison, for the hybrid demon prophesied to bring an end to
The Sanctum and destroy the world for Magicals and humans alike, Wyatt instead
finds Dev and his whole life turns upside down. Told he was hunting a killing
machine, hellbent on wreaking havoc and destruction upon all it encounters,
Wyatt instead sees nothing more than a broken girl with haunted eyes and a bit
of a death wish.

All Dev wants is for Wyatt to either kill her or leave her
alone. When he refuses to do either, she finds herself being pulled into his
life while being hunted by warriors everywhere she turns. Drawn to one another
for reasons they cannot begin to explain to themselves, much less anyone else,
Wyatt is determined to protect Dev and help her realize her mission to avenge
the deaths of her family at the hands of The Sanctum. His abdication of his
duties and his outright rejection of his responsibilities to The Sanctum create
a maelstrom of events beyond anyone’s imagination.
