We couldn’t wait to have a chat with Logan Bradley, the awesome boy from The Dark World, the first book in the new Dark World Series by Cara Lynn Shultz. We love Cara Lynn’s boys and knew Logan would be swoony! He definitely didn’t disappoint! We’ll see what he had to say when we sat down with him, but first, here’s the 411 on the book:
Paige Kelly is used to weird--in fact, she probably corners the market on weird, considering that her best friend, Dottie, has been dead since the 1950s. But when a fire demon attacks Paige in detention, she has to admit that things have gotten out of her league.
Luckily, the cute new boy in school, Logan Bradley, is a practiced demon slayer-and he isn't fazed by Paige's propensity to chat with the dead. Suddenly, Paige is smack in the middle of a centuries-old battle between warlocks and demons, learning to fight with a magic sword so that she can defend herself. And if she makes one wrong move, she'll be pulled into the Dark World, an alternate version of our world that's overrun by demons-and she might never make it home.
I’m not really afraid of spiders or anything like that. Losing someone important to me—that’s what terrifies me. Also, Paige’s dad.
The very first time I saw her? I thought… you know. I thought she was really pretty. But as I started paying more attention to her, I noticed other things. She’s funny. She walks down the hall with her head held high. That really struck me, to be honest. They call her Bellevue Kelly, even though she’s perfectly sane, and it would have been so easy for her to adopt that persona. She could have ignored Dottie once she realized what was going on. Instead, Paige chose the harder path. So I thought she was strong.
I haven’t met a lot of parents, but from everything I’ve learned in books and movies, dads do not like guys who like their daughters. Mrs. Kelly is really nice. But Mr. Kelly lived up to all my expectations.
Trusting someone is like giving them a knife and then turning your back. In my case, sometimes literally. Trusting the wrong person can be fatal. I don’t trust a lot of people because trust is power, and I don’t like giving anyone that power over me. But once I trust someone, I’ll do anything to keep them safe.

Ha. Um…boxer-briefs or boxers.
I hope so. I try to do not too much, not too little. Pay attention to her, what she seems to like and go with that. But sometimes you just get lost in the kiss, and afterwards you don’t remember the mechanics of it. You just remember that beating in your heart and that rush of feeling in your chest. My best kiss was on the rooftop at Paige’s house. Obviously…with Paige. That would be messed up if I took some other girl up there.
Classics? I love Hamlet. I find him easy to relate to. For…reasons. In terms of modern stuff, I love The Walking Dead graphic novels. The over-arching theme of right and wrong, and how those terms can be fluid given your circumstances, is appealing to me. Also for reasons.
Homemade pizza. Well, it’s breakfast, so pizza bagels, I guess. And something chocolate for her.
Would that be stuff I’m proud of? I’m a good fighter—really good. And once I make a decision, I stick to it.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, Logan ♥ ♥ ♥
