Centuries of Kade’s demons are unearthed when he is brainwashed and used as a Fallen pawn.
In the freezing pits of Hell, Ray is beaten and tortured, pushed to her breaking point. She takes a stand, firing back at her attackers though she’s only begun to understand the true strength of her wings. A strength she will need once she uncovers the evils that await on Earth.
Together they find solace, alone they will fight.

Lisa M. Basso was born and raised in San Francisco, California. She is a lover of books, video games, animals, and baking (not baking with animals though). As a child she would crawl into worlds of her own creation and get lost for hours. Her love for YA fiction started with a simple school reading assignment: S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders. When not reading or writing she can usually be found at home with The Best Husband that Ever Lived ™ and her two darling (and sometimes evil) cats, Kitties A and B.
How did you come up with the idea for Angel Sight?
The idea for The Angel Sight series was a very basic one: white wings versus dark wings. Very rarely (for me at least) does a book idea come to fully fleshed out. I worked for weeks, jotting ideas down in a notebook, until that magical string of inspiration started wrapping around the usable pieces, roping them into my head. From there I focused on the aspects that surprised and inspired me most, expanding and filling them out. Finally, when I knew enough about the world, I worked on the characters and main plot points, bad guys and even worse decisions. Some of these things would change when I actually start writing a book, but I love having a solid base before I get started.
If you were able to, do you think you would want to be in Rayna’s shoes?
No matter how much I love the Angel Sight world and its characters, I would never—repeat: NEVER—want to be anywhere near it. Rayna went through so much in the course of three books. I couldn’t even imagine trying to survive her horrible experiences. Yes, she got to be around two smoking hot angel boys, but not even Cam and Kade could help level that playing field.
Out of all the characters in this book who do you think would be your BFF?
Ack! This is a tough question. I love all my characters. Even the ones that do horrible things. Okay, especially the ones that do horrible things. My favorite characters to write are the good old causing mischief, trying to overthrow the world bad guys. In A SHIMMER OF ANGELS, Kade would be my BFF because he was unpredictable and so on the fence about who he was. In A SLITHER OF HOPE, Lucien would be my choice. He had a definite goal, but it never stopped him from having fun, in a playing-with-his-food-before-he-ate-it kind of way. A MATTER OF TIME brought a very serious, very old enemy (no spoilers here!), but my BFF in the last book would be a returning bad guy from book one. There really is something about the bad guys, they’re willing to do anything to get what they want and damn the consequences. Sometimes, that’s a desirable quality in a BFF.
When did you start writing?
My first foray into fiction was as a youngster. Somewhere between eleven and thirteen. I cycled off and on in my teens with either devouring fiction or being a reluctant reader. Writing out some of the issues I was dealing with at this age as fictitious character made them easier to get out.
Did you always know that you wanted to become an author?
Not even a little. I wrote off and on in high school as well, but it wasn’t until I was in my early twenties, hunting for a job that I could continue to be passionate about that I realized writing was exactly what I was searching for. I haven’t looked back since.
What are some books that made you what you are today?
My very favorite book as a teen was S. E. Hinton’s THE OUTSIDERS. I was also an R. L. Stein Fear Street and Christopher Pike addict. Alongside those I read and fell in love with quite a few inappropriate-for-my-age books in the horror, fantasy, and sci-fi sections.
Is there any authors that made you what you are today?
Before I fell in love with YA, I read a lot of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, horror, and a few of the classics. I learned voice from Keri Arthur, theme from Stephen King, setting from Anne Rice, and characters from literally every book I’ve ever read. Seriously, if I disliked a book, I would still learn something about my own style, like character quirks, sentence structure, or even what I didn’t care for when reading (so as not to add that specific element to my own writing).
Do you have any advice for the young writers out there?
Brandon Sanderson once said something that always stuck with me. It was along the lines of: awesome trumps everything. He went on to explain that if an idea was awesome enough he could most likely find a way to make it work in his books. What I’ve taken away from his advice is my own personal writing motto, if you aren’t having fun with the book or its characters while writing or revising the story, readers won’t have fun while reading it.
Another piece of advice I’m very fond of is never give up. Take a break if things are bad, sure, but always come back. It isn’t about how many times you fall, it’s about how many you get up.
Thanks so much for hosting me today!
