JJJ is so excited to introduce an exclusive book trailer for Carina Adly MacKenzie‘s first novel “Eternal Night”!
We caught up with Carina, who also happens to be a writer on The Originals, to chat about the novel, which follows six young gods hiding in plain sight among mortals.
“The idea for ‘Eternal Night’ started with my editors, actually. I always envisioned myself writing a more realistic contemporary high school novel, and I hope to do that next. Once we got to talking and the idea of gods came up, though, I was immediately excited,” Carina told JJJ. “When I was a kid I was obsessed with this book of Greek mythology — it’s actually pretty scandalous, when you’re nine years old — so after talking to my editors, I went to the bookstore and asked them to help me find a giant yellow book about Gods. That was all I remembered of it. It turned out to be the ‘D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths,’ so I dug into that and from there got really inspired and excited about this story and finding ways to make it my own.”
Here’s the book’s synopsis: On a hot June morning, the body of a beautiful girl is found floating in the rooftop pool of the Jefferson Hotel, her white-ink tattoos revealing the story of a life much longer than seems possible. Only the immortals know the truth: Nadia was the goddess of hope. Now she’s gone, and the world as they know it is ending. The Hudson River has turned blood red. Storms rage overhead. Mania is rapidly spreading across the globe.
It is up to the remaining gods—Lola, Dean, Weston, Mark, Nike and Peitha—to put aside centuries of betrayal and heartbreak, and stop the mysterious source of darkness that is taking over…before the sun sets forever.
Carina‘s writing has gotten a ton of praise, including from actors Joseph Morgan, Colton Haynes, and Phoebe Tonkin, as well as longtime TV executive producers/writers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson.
