Wait till they get a load of me…
Every Tuesday over at the The Broke and Bookish we all get to look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) examples to demonstrate that particular topic. The topic this week is :
‘All About The Villains’
- Voldemort – needs no explanation! But, just in case. Seriously bad wizard with dreams of taking over the world of wizarding! Harry Potter series by J K Rowling.
- Game of Thrones – evil siblings – what on earth could be worse. GRRMartin’s Cersei and Jaime.
- Sauron – this guy only has a disembodied eye – an eye – okay it’s a huge eye, but still! and he’s still making a play for world domination with orcs and the like running amok.
- Seanan McGuire’s October Daye series: Rayseline – fae. In fairness she was kidnapped as a youngster and this has left it’s mark on her but even so – she plots!
- The Seven Forges series by James Moore – Sa’ba Taalor – God touched and basically war machines. They live to fight and seem to feel no fear. A great creation by James Moore.
- Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt – Katherine van Wyler – a witch, eyes and mouth sewn shut, she stalks the residents of Black Springs (where she was killed over 300 years earlier). Nobody leaves Black Springs and lives to tell the tale.
- The Kushiel books by Jacqueline Carey: Melisande a scheming woman who always has the long game in mind. A magnificent baddie!
- Mrs Danvers from Daphne Du Maurier’s Rebecca. You have to love Mrs Danvers – a woman obsessed.
- The White Witch from C S Lewis’s The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe – how can you like a person who froze Mr Tumnus!?! It’s just wrong!
- Wesley Chu’s Tao series: The Genjix – a nation of aliens divided (The Genjix and the Prophus) and at war with each other here on earth – where they have to inhabit the bodies of people!
