Book tour & Giveaway (US/Int): Enslaved in Shadow’s Royce on movies and sports

by davincikittieJune 29, 2012

Meet the Shadow Unit’s Royce!

A lot of people have said great things about me, but in all fairness. I should probably tell you the really bad stuff about me. Right? Wrong! Why would I do that? I would ruin all my street credentials. No one really cares that my father sent me off to England at an early age to become more “civilized” and no one needs to know that I can impregnate women with just a mere look.

I am here to give you a list of my favorite things!


Rugby: All Blacks   “Me Mahi tahi tātau, kia manawa nui, kia toa.”
Work as one, in spirit and heart we are strong.  ( As Dietrich would say, “These muthafuckers are BEASTS!” I think they are shifters, but who knows.)

Football (Soccer) Team Manchester United I’m a true Red through and through doesn’t matter if I bleed blue!

Baseball: Detroit Tigers I just like their insignia and they seem to be going places!

MMA: I’m all about the cage fights! I would do this but Tigris has assured me that my ears would be permanently damaged. I have assured her of course I’m Immortal I heal fast.

Hockey: I just have two words for Hockey! PENALTY BOX!

I also on occasion will watch Nascar, but it is not truly my thing.


Kill Bill Vol 1 qnd 2 You know I have to drop you a quote from each movie, it would be un-Royce like if I didn’t!

Hattori Hanzo: { Bad ass if you ask me} I am finished doing what I swore an oath to God 28 years ago to never do again. I’ve created, “something that kills people.” And in that purpose, I was a success. I’ve done this because, philosophically, I am sympathetic to your aim. I can tell you with no ego, this is my finest sword. If on your journey, you should encounter God, God will be cut.

Bill: As you know, I’m quite keen on comic books. Especially the ones about superheroes. I find the whole mythology surrounding superheroes fascinating. Take my favorite superhero, Superman. Not a great comic book. Not particularly well-drawn. But the mythology. The mythology is not only great, it’s unique.

Just One Of The Guys: ALL BALLS ITCH!

Pulp Fiction

Reservoir Dogs ( I admit openly that I dig QT) He just writes really good shit!

Inglorious Bastards

Death Proof

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

The Golden Flower

House of Flying Daggers

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

Any and all of Adam Sandler Movies and of course Vince Vaughn Movies and Will Ferrell


I will leave you all with one of my favorite movie quotes! But ROYCE Style….

Shadow Unit. The Legend of Draven Stone….

Royce: The bottom line is you’ve been spending a lot of time with this lady, Draven. You’re a member of Shadow Unit.

Draven: That’s a given.

Royce: We need you. Hell, I need you. I’m a mess without you. I go through woman after woman after woman. I miss you so damn much! I miss being with you. I miss reading your mind. I miss the way the room lights up when you walk through the conference door. I miss your scent. When this all gets sorted out, I think you and me should get a crash pad together!

Dietrich: Dude, you seriously need to do a systems check. Why don’t you sit this next mission out, stop talking for a while?

Well, that’s all folks! Be sure to pick up a copy of my book… *coughs* I mean Draven’s book. Enslaved In Shadows! We’d love to hear your thoughts!

Royce Zarides

A man’s Past leads to his Future……

Agent Stone of the Shadow Unit’s job is simple, most days. Work in the Shadows, police his own Kind.

When an unwanted assignment turns out to be his darkest fantasy from the past, Draven can’t help but be conflicted by the memories of the past and his responsibilities in the future. But his decision has been made.

The Heart of a woman is Tested……..

Jes can’t let the tall dark agent back into her life.
How can she trust any man after what she’s endured. Years of abuse have broken her down and she doesn’t have room for more. The man she turns to for help hasn’t abused her physically but he’s tormented her emotionally. A past betrayal left her scarred, but also brought her life.

Can she accept him into her heart and trust him again?

One will survive and adapt, the other will realize hearts can be mended even if it’s a bit too late.

The road to forgiveness sometimes only brings more pain. Unexpected events set their lives on two separate tracks leading to one outcome. Lives will be changed and an emotional battle to save their souls will leave them both trapped and enslaved in their need for one another.

Giving back…

    Thank you all for commenting and for the congrats! I’d love to do write about all the members on the team. Royce and his brother Ronin are up next in Burned. Along with Jes and Draven who will be revisited.

    Royce actually doesn’t do well with American Football, he’s um, picky like that, but I love the Giants! GO GIANTS! And not just because they won the super bowl 2 times in the last 5 years.

    Royce is a Feral not a shifter he just has some shifter like qualities. He doesn’t get fury, he’s just more animal than man. Actually Ronin is more animal than his brother and that’s saying a lot. LOL

    The story is going to revolve around more than just shifters, werewolves, and vampires. More things to come on that!

    Again thanks again and thanks to Grave tells for letting Royce stop by and talk his head off! 🙂

    I like Royce’s sense of humor! Thanks for the giveaway!

    Congrats Tigris! I can’t wait to read this book, and I love the Giants too. You need to convert Royce to liking them too. 🙂
