Posts from the Past: EC:GA Heroes


These are previous posts that have been dusted off, updated, and freshly presented to an audience that’s never seen them. These limited posts originate from the companion blogs I’ve written for books in my Eternal Curse Series as well as others down the road. Some information may be omitted.


From 40 Days and Night of Eternal Curse: Heroes

There are all kinds of heroes. The two types I most think of are, traditional heroes who physically save lives, and the kinds of heroes that make another person’s life better just by being around. In Eternal Curse, both of these types of heroes are present.

Mira is the type of hero who changes your life, just by being there, though as a doctor, she is capable of saving lives. Mira is Giovanni’s human savior. She opens him up to the understanding of both his inhumanity and his humanity, while helping him to live and lead a satisfying life. She helps him to understand what it is to be a good person and a good man.

Giovanni and Bletsian are both the type of heroes who save lives, but they do it together. Giovanni and Bletsian are one in the same, but very different. Neither of these personas can be the hero he needs to be, without the influence of the other. Giovanni is the noble spirit, the compassion, and the determination that fuels this life saving intertwined duo. Bletsian is the brute strength, the power, and the life-saving force that physically moves this two-sided duo forward.

This book serves as an introduction to these characters. The extent, to which these characters get to act out the true power of their hero status, doesn’t truly take effect until the next book.
