Who Is Mistral Dawn?

#RRBC's #SPOTLIGHT #Author #BlogTour!! SPOTLIGHT Author, Tara Fairfield!

Ka Moho Alii-Ruler of Sharks

Tell us a little bit about yourself. What motivates you?

I was born to rule the sea. As a prince of the undersea world of Moku-ola I have powerful gifts, including the ability to control sharks. They are my closest friends and allies. The time will come when a crown sits on my head causing everyone in Moku-ola to recognize my power. Tessa, our recently crowned queen, will choose me as her king, or suffer the consequences, and if my brother interferes, he will find out once and for all the true extent of my abilities. I live to fulfill my destiny.

Who are your heroes?

No greater predators exist than my sharks and the greatest of them all is Nikko, my closest friend. Strong, ruthless, dominant, he exudes the qualities of a triumphant hero and has earned my admiration.

What is your favorite food?

Squid, it’s speed make it a worthy prey. Hunting squid in the ocean depths really works up an appetite.

How old are you?

A ruler is timeless and never reveals his true age.

What is your greatest strength?

My control over all sharks living in the ocean will always be my greatest strength. Every shark is bound to serve and follow my commands. They share my desires, goals and emotions, as if we are of one mind. They are my true family. What greater strength could a king have than the most ruthless predators in the ocean at his command?

Do you have a weakness?

No. Why would you even ask me such a thing? Do you doubt my power?

No, Sorry. It’s just that most people have vulnerabilities, you know, an area not quite as strong.

Not me.

What is your favorite thing about living under the sea?

….When I’m deep, riding the back of my shark, pursuing prey, rocketing through currents, the rush of water against my face…..ahhhh…..nothing can compare to such a thrill. The wild ocean stirs my soul, like the call of a child for it’s mother, I cannot resist the deep wilderness of the sea.

Any message you’d like to give to those of us living on the surface?

Huh? I care nothing for what happens above the surface. I didn’t realize you were a surface dweller….this interview is over.
