Good vs. Evil with Author CJ Bolyne

Please welcome author CJ Bolyne tot he blog!

Hey everyone! Thanks for joining me on Day 2 of my very first virtual book blog tour for my very first book, Trinity! I appreciate you being here.

A very common trope or convention used in Fantasy books is the battle between good and evil, where evil rises up in order to do battle with good in the hopes of taking over and allowing anarchy to reign supreme. It sounds like a good plan … to them. Not so good for the good guys though, especially if they lose. But, really, how often do the good guys lose?

The good vs. evil battle can come in different forms. In my book Trinity, on the larger scale, there is the long enduring battle within the Kingdom of Gwynneth – between the 13 gods of the Guardians (the good guys) and the corresponding 13 gods of the Anords (you guessed it – the bad guys).

My main character, Payton, finds out very early on in the book that she is the key to the Guardian’s chance for finally winning the battle against the Anords. The problem the Guardians now have is, having wiped Payton’s memory in order to keep her safe from the Anords, the dangerous and tedious task of returning her memory slowly through 13 keywords is taking too long. They need her to be in control of all her powers before the final battle. But the powers come with her memory.

On a more personal level, what happens when the battle between good and evil is really a battle between the good and evil fragments of yourself? This is what Payton now faces only she does not realize it until it’s too late.

I am currently writing my second book in this series where all battles between good and evil continue with more surprising turns and twists along the way.

About CJ Bolyne:  CJ Bolyne is a first time author and Trinity is her first book. Born and raised in Southeastern Manitoba, Canada, CJ was an avid reader dreaming of the day she would write her own fantasy/sci-fi book. When she’s not writing, CJ spends her time on her farm with her husband and multiple pets. She runs a full-time pet grooming business. Her first book, Trinity, is the first in the series.

About Trinity:  Payton thought she had a normal, everyday life. When a mysterious man suddenly appears, he shatters her world telling her that her entire life has been a lie. She is a god with the Guardians having lived for 1000’s of years. The Anords know where she is and he needs to protect her at all costs. Payton holds the key to saving humanity. However, a mysteriously familiar woman complicates everything.

  2. Hi Charlee,
    This is a great introduction to your writing – you have my curiosity!
    I’m a big fan of dystopian/apocalyptic fare, but more than anything, I am a big fan of writing involving the struggle between light and dark (or good and evil). Sounds like your books might be a good fit!

  3. Hi CJ, I’m a big fan of Utopian.and Dystopian stories and am anxious to read about her internal battles and how they seem to hold the key to society’s welfare. Sounds allegorical.

  4. Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by. I particularly love it when authors explore the internal struggle between good and evil within the character. I think it is important and interesting to examine the moral consequences of any fight against evil. Great post, CJ!
