Guest Post:

Chris and Cassidy
By Summer Lane

The first two books of The Collapse Series were largely spent focusing on the initial fall of society – and the romance of Chris Young and Cassidy Hart. The attraction between these two very different characters was something that I enjoyed writing about immensely. State of Emergency and State of Chaos allowed me to grow their relationship to a point where I was comfortable adding more characters to the mix and heightening the global threat of Omega.

What I love about Chris and Cassidy’s relationship is that Cassidy has gone from being entirely dependent on him for survival to becoming a strong, independent, kick-butt female lead. I love it coming-of-age stories, and I really feel like Cassidy has gotten the chance to grow up slowly in front of the eyes of readers. She is still not completely mature – I mean, no character really ever is! But she is learning, and this causes a few difficulties in her relationship with Chris Young. State of Alliance tests the limits of their compatibility in new ways and begs the question: Is love possible, even amidst the end of the world?

Summer Lane is the author of the international bestselling Collapse Series and Zero Trilogy. She owns WB Publishing and Writing Belle, an online magazine dedicated to the Art of Storytelling.
