Episode 55: Break 'em to Make 'em - the Herose who Rise from the Ashes


This week the dragons examine the darkest part of the heroes journey - the point where suffering has reached a fever pitch and it appears as if nothing will ever go right again. The point where the character has been tortured by the writer to the point where you know as a reader that they will never be quite the same person you started rooting for when you began the book. Does adversity build character? Do you only truly meet and know a character when they are in extremis? Join us to find out. On the slab this week - Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Harry Potter and of course, M.E.Vaughan herself as Jules quizzes her about her shocking treatment of her charcaters in book two of The Harmatia Cycle. (Sneak peeks at 'Blood of the Delphi included!)
