Twelve Books for Christmas: Day Eleven ~ Double Star by Cindy Saunders

When Cepheus, a dark god, forces seventeen-year-old Ally Ashworth off an isolated overlook, she has no idea she's falling into his world, or that the necklace she’s wearing is actually a key - one with the power to ignite the next world war. But she’s carried beyond his reach and into the one place where he’s powerless ... the forest of Gilgamesh.

Ally’s never been Miss Popularity, but her outsider status takes on new meaning when she’s rescued by Liam Cheveyo and his peculiar friends. After seeing them shape-shift into their freaky humanimal counterparts, Ally smacks hard into a few truths: magic really does exist and, although getting here took no effort, finding her way back might be impossible. Feelings between her and Liam begin to grow along with the realization that, in this world, she’s stronger, better ... until she’s caught in a trap set by the creepy spider-boy Cepheus sends to retrieve her. But Ally’s not going down without a fight, not after learning the horrible truth about the passageways.

The survival of both worlds depends on it.

~ Interview ~

Konstanz: What is your favorite thing about Christmas?

Cindy: My favorite thing about Christmas is decorating the house. There's nothing like the smell of a real tree ...until the needles begin to fall! Once it's up and decorated, I love sitting near it when the lights are on and remembering all the great Christmas' I enjoyed as a child. It's very magical!

Konstanz: If you were to give your Main Character a Christmas present, what would it be?

Cindy: I would give Ally the key to a door that would allow her and Liam to travel freely between their worlds.

Konstanz: Do you prefer to be surrounded by Snow or Sun on Christmas?

Cindy: Snow, of course!! I'm from New England!

Konstanz: What is the craziest, funnest, best, or worst present you've ever received for Christmas?

Cindy: My familly has a running joke where we've regifted the same sweater back and forth over the past few years. We seem to forget about it until one of us opens it and tries to act like we love it. And the person doing the giving that year is trying not to roll on the floor in a fit of laughter. I think it's probably my year to get the sweater again!

Konstanz: What is your favorite Christmas food?

Cindy: Fruit cake .. KIDDING! My daughter and I make Christmas cookies every year and no matter how they turn out, we eat everyone one!

Konstanz: What do you want most of all for Christmas this year?

Cindy: No bills after the holidays!
