Character Interview: Toril Valda

Toril is a character from The King’s Paladin, serving as a love interest to Ismena and something of an antagonist to Coraline.

She’s a terrified mess for a lot of the book, thrust into a job she doesn’t think she’s ready for, but she has the most tender heart ever and loves helping and healing people. Enjoy her interview. :) Continue reading “Character Interview: Coraline Seralen”
