Love and Memory Blog Tour: Character Interview with Petra

Today is the second day for the Love and Memory Blog Tour, which celebrates Kendra E. Ardnek’s latest book, which is slotted to release in two days. Love and Memory is Book Three in The Rizkaland Legends. I have the pleasure of interviewing one of the main female characters, Petra.

Scroll on to read a bit about the author and book, the interview, and a giveaway.


Kendra E. Ardnek is the self-proclaimed Arista of Fairy Tales. She lives in the Piney Woods of East Texas with her dragon babies and massive herd of mini-giraffes, and she is still waiting for one of her fifty nutcrackers to come to life and marry her. When not writing, you can usually find her sitting in a random box, and she’s frequently known to act before she thinks.

Book Description:

The Rizkaland Legends #3

When a Queen forgets,

Her enemies rejoice in her weakness.

But when the Queen remembers,

They tremble in fear.

When a King loves,

His country rejoices with him.

But when that love is broken.

The land is broken, too.

Can Water and Fire join again?

Can Love and Memory be restored?

They spent years in Rizkaland. They ruled the land, forged friendships, built families, and made it their home. But then it was time to return to Earth, and their former lives just don’t fit anymore. Clara and Andrew struggle to reevaluate their priorities when hundreds of miles separate them. Reuben and Petra are lost as they seek a balance between their old friendship and their Rizkan marriage. And Ashna and Noraeto never planned to return, so what life is there for them on Earth?

When the unthinkable happens and a new enemy arises, they’re all thrown back into Rizkaland, into a young prince’s rise to power and struggle to build alliances for his kingdom. But they no longer belong in their other world, either.

Are good memories too much to bear?

M: Thanks for agreeing to the interview, Petra. I know everyone is as curious as I am to hear your answers.

P: I’m sure they are. *frustrated sigh* Okay, Kendra’s glaring at me, so let’s get this over with. 

M: I’ll forgive you for being cranky. I’m sure it’s exhausting being a character. Alright, here’s the first question: If you could travel back in time and tell your pre-Tela Du self one thing, what would it be?

P: Stop trying to make things complicated with Reuben. I mean, I know I’m not handling things much better now that I’ve returned, but I would most certainly sit myself down and tell her that he loves me unconditionally and he’s not going to go anywhere, but neither is he going to rush anything. I would probably tell myself to chill out over my sisters, but … that’s another issue.

M: They do say hindsight is 20/20. And sisters are definitely…interesting, if mine is anything to by. Question Two: There is no question that being Tela Du was difficult for you in more ways than one. Drawing from the experience you’ve gained, what is some advice you have for someone going through a rough time?

P: If you have someone who has your back … let them have it. Don’t push them away. 

M: That’s an excellent piece of advice, and something everyone could benefit from. How has your faith grown during your time in Rizkaland? Do you think you would have reached this faith level had you not been the Tela Du?

P: Well, in Rizkaland, I got to speak with Alphego face-to-face and receive a commission directly from Him, so I’ll definitely say that it’s real to me in a way that it wasn’t before, but I always did know what I believed. God was good. He made sense, even if the rest of my life didn’t.  

M: It’s wonderful how we can cling to Him when everything else is tempest-tossed. What memory of Rizkaland is your fondest? Which one is your worst?

P: I have so many fond memories – choosing one is impossible. But they mostly involve the care of my family and the people we ruled. The worst … I can’t talk about the worst. I’m very sorry about giving non-answers here, really I am, but there are wounds that I can’t open. 

M: I understand. Some things are better left alone. Alright, one more question then I’ll release you from your misery. If you could take one thing from Rizkaland back to our world, what would it be?

P: My children … though, there were five of them, so I don’t think that qualifies as “one.” 

M: Since they’d be one “unit”, I say that qualifies. Thanks again, Petra, for agreeing to this interview.
