Q:Who is your favorite villain from a book?
This one is almost a no-brainer for me. There is one villain that really sticks out - the Darkling from Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. This is not an endorsement for Team Darkling. I'd rather Alina end up with neither male character, but I am leaning towards Mal, because readers know next to nothing about the Darkling.
The Darkling doesn't always seem like a villain. At first, yes, he does, because he takes Alina. But, then it seems like he's her friend, and she depends on him. I love the quality of mystery about him. Despite the end of Shadow and Bone, I am kind of still on his side, because his motives, well, I understand them. But that's the thing with villain - they think they're the hero of their story.
What about you? :)
Great pick! I love it :DReplyDelete
Aw a few seem to be saying this one. Need to get to reading this series!ReplyDelete

The only villian that I can think of right now are all tv based. I am loving Hook right now on Once Upon a Time.
