Feature & Follow Friday #1
My first ever Feature & Follow Friday!
The Feature & Follow hop is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The aim is for book bloggers to meet other book bloggers and garner followers :D
This week's question:
Who is your favourite villain from a book?
[May contain some spoilers for those who haven't read Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone/The Gathering Dark]
Mine's definitely the Darkling from Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy. From the beginning, I hated Mal as he never noticed Alina until she got famous. But the Darkling saw her from the very beginning. And despite him only using her for power I could sense something underlying - that beneath the cool, overpowering demeanour, he really WANTED Alina. "The problem with wanting is that it makes us weak" as he said.
Handsome, dark, brooding, damaged, broken, power-hungry, and insanely sexy the Darkling is one delicious villain.
So who's your favourite villain?
