Guest Post by author Trisha Wolfe: DREAM CAST

Dream Cast

Finding the perfect cast for your characters is a daunting task. I’ve spent so much time with these guys, and when I wrote the story, I definitely had their images seared into my mind. So when you’re seeking the perfect person to replace what you have branded in your brain, it’s not easy. But I believe these guys right here come pretty close.

Chad Michael is a nearly perfect match for Jace. His squinty-eyed glare and pouty lips is just how I envision Jace’s “look”.

Chase Crawford. Oh, baby, oh. Put some red eyes on him and we have a close match for Reese. Especially the way his face lights up when he smiles. That’s how I picture him when he looks into Dez’s eyes. And he can look pretty scary when he’s all mean like.

Dez was really hard to find. I’m still not sure Emma Roberts is the perfect match. I don’t want Dez to be a model, and Emma has that girl next door appeal. Dez to me is beautiful, but not in that “perfect” plastic way. She just has naturalness about her, a freshness. So I think Emma comes pretty close.

Would love to hear your thoughts! Who do you think would make the perfect cast? I love that people can read the same book, take in the author’s description, and come away with completely different images in their mind. Sometimes I ignore the description altogether and dream up my own. That’s the amazing thing about books. It becomes your world and your characters.

It’s the year 2040, and sixteen-year-old Dez Harkly is one of the last of her kind—part of a nearly extinct race of shape-shifters descended from guardians to the Egyptian pharaohs. Her home and her secret are threatened when the Council lowers the barrier, allowing the enemy race to enter the Shythe haven.

As the Narcolym airships approach, Dez and her friends rebel against their Council and secretly train for battle. Not only is Dez wary of war and her growing affection for her best friend Jace, but she fears the change her birthday will bring. When Dez’s newfound power rockets out of control, it’s a Narcolym who could change her fate… if she can trust him.

Dez’s guarded world crumbles when she discovers why the Narcos have really come to Haven Falls, and she's forced to choose between the race who raised her and the enemy she's feared her whole life.


  1. Yay it works! So I just read this last week so I'm loving this post! Chad Michael is perfect for Jace! Really they're all great I love Emma Roberts and she does fit the look I had for her.

  2. I am so jealous Giselle! I have this on my Nook, read first chapter and haven't had the time to pick it back up. Currently reading ARC Tour books. Definitely will though. Can't wait to read your review.

  3. I love hearing about author's dream casts. I'm afraid that I have yet to read this book and can't give my input, but I will be reading it as soon as I get a copy!

  4. I really like these picks! I think Chace Crawford is an excellent choice for Reese. I'm #TeamReese by the way, so so so hot. Guys, this book is amazing, you need to get this when it's released.

  5. I love doing this inside my head. I really love seeing what the author's choices are, even if the person is different than who I imagined. I may have to pick this one up.

  6. I think that your choices are spot on Trisha! I especially love Chace Crawford as Reese <3

  7. I agree. Great choices!! I loved the book too and can't wait to see what others think when it releases tomorrow!!

  8. New follower! Thanks for blogging about this book. I need to build up my TBR pile, and this sounds great. Looking forward to your posts.

  9. I like your choices about boys characters but Emma Roberts not so much!

  10. *drools* I am so Team Reese!

  11. Haven't read the book (YET!) but these look like really great choices. Emma Roberts as a main character? I've definitely got to check this out!

  12. Great dream cast :)
    So excited to read this!

  13. It's a very nice looking cast. Great post. I am very eager to read this!

  14. Awesome picks for Jace & Dez. But for Reese I'm not so sure about Chace Crawford. I feel like he's to scrawny almost for Reese. I was thinking more Kellen Lutz but i could be wrong. Who knows =)

  15. This would make make an awesome movie! But I definitely need to read the book it is at the top of my 2012 tbr pile!
