  1. You know, I really love Donia. Totally into the tragic characters too. It is kind of a toss-up if I like Donia or Niall more. Brooding and sad is usually more interesting to me. Thanks for the raving post about Marr's short stories - I've downloaded them now :)

  2. Niall, because...its Niall. Need I more reasoning?

  3. I'm not sure if I have a favorite or not. I have to agree with everyone, Niall and Donia are pretty fabulous to read about, but I am interested in seeing Seth's character develop. I wouldn't say he's my favorite character, but I see way more random chaos happening with him than any other characters and I love seeing that happen.

  4. Count me in, after your reviews, I'm thinking I'll go ahead and give this series another chance. And like you, I am in love with Niall. He's the Dark Lord and he owns it.

  5. I love Seth because of his devotion to Ash. He makes the ultimate sacrifice in becoming fey. Thanks for the contest. I'd love to win.

  6. Thanks for introducing me to this series. In the little bit that I've read, I think Ash is my favorite, but that could well be that most of what I've seen has been through her eyes. Thank you for the contest.

  7. I have liked Seth from the start. You gotta love a regular mortal man who stands up to the immortal Fae for his woman. However, Niall is my favorite. A former Dark Court darling who switched sides twice, is now the Dark King (and a freaking awesome one at that) and has a great, big bone to pick with Keenan? That is one complicated guy. Plus, he just gives me the warm fuzzies :) I hope he really gets to kick some Summer butt. Go Niall!

  8. My favorites are Seth and Leslie.

    Seth because his character is growing and changing so much and he is so devoted. Its cool to watch how he changes and adapts to this new world.

    Leslie, I have liked from the beginning and am looking forward to finding out what happens to her.

  9. Niall is my favorite b/c I just loved him in Ink Exchange! And while reading Wicked Lovely, I remember reading his advice to Keenan about Ash and not really looking past face-value at his comments. Then when I read Ink Exchange I really saw how deep his scars were and how he used that dark past to try and guide Keenan rather than do anything selfish, and he did the same for Leslie though that didn't end so well.
    But how 'bout I'm actually shocked that I'm in consensus here?! I have run into people who like Irial, but not Niall! It's cool to see :D

    Btw Seth is no slouch either, lol
    I like him a lot too :)

  14. My favorite characters are Leslie and Niall. Throughout all of the books (and now the short story), I think they've probably had the most believable character development based on their tragic, abusive pasts. I liked that this history allowed them to be vulnerable with each in Ink Exchange.

    Thanks for the contest!

  15. My favorite character is Aislinn. Why? Because she sounds like a kick ass heroine.

  16. Aww swoon Niall because when I read Ink Exchange it was cataclysmic the way he wiped out my favoritism for Keenan

  18. Niall: Dark is the reason. It's all I want.

  19. Just FYI I read the entire short story and the first 18 chapters last night.

    I think my favorite character is a toss-up between Niall and Irial. sigh. I love them both.

  20. Ash is my favorite. She's strong, yet not afraid to ask for comfort or help when she needs it. I love the other characters too, but she's my favorite!

    Irial, hands down. I love the fact that in so many ways, he's so incredibly human. And yet, he'll never be human, at least in terms of his behavior. I loved how in Stopping Time he was thinking about how there were only two people in the world he really cared about, and everyone else was just.. tools to keep them safe. That thought process really accentuated for me how far from human he really is. And yet, he shows these flashes of vulnerability and other emotions and for a moment, you forget. Anyhow, I could babble all day about all the fascets of his character that draw me in, but I'll stop now *g*cCourtney

  33. Leslie! I love the conflict and darkness in that character. Her journey felt very real to me.

Terms of Endearment

Have you ever been reading a book, moving along quite nicely, and then--bam--a character whips out a particular term of endearment that just yanks you right out of the story? It happened to me recently, and I'm sad to say I couldn't recover. I did try. But she just kept using that term and I . . . I had to get the hell out of Dodge. Buh-bye, story. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. I'm not saying this is the norm (thank goodness). I can put up with a certain amount of treacly back and forth when it comes to the exchange of terms of endearment, especially if they fit the characters, their background, culture, the tenor of their relationship, etc. And the history of these terms at home and from around the world is often fascinating (at times hilarious). But there comes a point where I can't see past the cheese and/or weird anymore and I do not want to be with these people any longer. Shallow? Perhaps. But it's a very individual thing, isn't it?

Interview with Sara Creasy + Children of Scarabaeus Giveaway!

Today is the release day for Sara Creasy's Children of Scarabaeus--the second book in her wonderful Scarabaeus duology. I'm delighted to be celebrating release day with an interview with Ms. Creasy. I picked up Song of Scarabaeusa couple of weeks ago, fell immediately in love, and set about getting my hands on an ARC ofthe sequel as quickly as possible (you can read my reviews here and here). This is the kind of science fiction I love--character-driven and exciting, set against the background of a fully developed and eerily fascinating world. If you haven't had a chance to pick up these books, now is the perfect time. Please welcome Sara Creasy!  First things first: The Covers. I am kind of a fan of Chris McGrath’s covers, and I love the little touches on these two that make them unique to Edie & Finn’s story. Did you have any input on the covers and what was your reaction upon seeing the first one? Isn’t his work amazing? As soon as I found out he was doing my SONG OF S…
