Goodreads asked Carter Roy:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Carter Roy The idea for The Blood Guard came from a reference I read in some other book long ago to the tzadikim in the kabbalah, a very old religious text. According to it, there are thirty-six pure souls upon whom the world's future depends.

Nifty, I thought. What would happen if someone went after these pure souls? How would you protect them? More importantly, who would protect them?

... which led directly to the Blood Guard.
