Character Interview: Catessa Regan
For those of you who don’t know, Catessa is the main character of both Slander & Steel and The Last Assassin. (And I just interviewed her and a friend of hers from TLA last week, if you’d like to see them interact with each other.) She’s a thief and assassin who’s fiercely loyal to her makeshift family, hates reading, and has always been more comfortable near the sea than further inland. I’ll be interviewing her around the time of TLA, but I might have to dance around some things to avoid S&S spoilers. Enjoy!
