Character Tour: The Collector's Society by Heather Lyons~ Meet Victor!

I am excited today to feature Victor from Heather Lyon's The Collector's Society as part of the character tour hosted by InkSlinger PR.

Here's a little information about The Collector's Society before we meet Victor.


After years in Wonderland, Alice has returned to England as an adult, desperate to reclaim sanity and control over her life. An enigmatic gentleman with an intriguing job offer too tempting to resist changes her plans for a calm existence, though. Soon, she’s whisked to New York and initiated into the Collectors’ Society, a secret organization whose members confirm that famous stories are anything but straightforward and that what she knows about the world is only a fraction of the truth.

It’s there she discovers villains are afoot—ones who want to shelve the lives of countless beings. Assigned to work with the mysterious and alluring Finn, Alice and the rest of the Collectors’ Society race against a doomsday clock in order to prevent further destruction . . . but will they make it before all their endings are erased?


Name: Victor Van Brunt
Alias: Victor Frankenstein, Jr.
Age: 31
Eye color: Brown
Hair color: Brown/black
Height: 6’ 3”
Timeline: 1818SHE-F
Song: Demons by Imagine Dragons

~Quotes from Victor~

“Sometimes I wish I could just change my last name.”

“Ah, yes. You and I will find some kind of secret lab in the basement of the Institute, and we’ll devolve into madness together.” He rubs his hands together before holding them up in the air.
“Bwhahaha! Think of the damage we can do! We can play croquet with some corpse limbs down there, drinking tea like we’re with the Queen. I’ll make us a mad, dead tea party of our own.”

“This is bloody uncomfortable.” Victor raps on the metal shielding his chest. “How does anybody ever get used to it?”
“You get used to it,” Ferz Eponi says from nearby, “when it saves your life, lad.”
“Do they talk?”
The Ferz is confused by Victor’s question. “Do who talk?”
“The horses!”
“No, Doctor. They’re horses.”
Finn’s brother turns to me. “Am I wrong? There are talking animals who are soldiers in this encampment. The Nightrider is a unicorn after all. He talks.” He pauses. “Does he ride horses?”
Several of the soldiers around us—both human and animal—glower at Victor’s commentary.
I end up hushing him.
