Who Is Your Favorite Villain? #Bloghop #Giveaway

I find villains fascinating, usually a lot more fascinating than heroes. I like them so much, I wrote a whole series about them!

I saw some other participants interviewing villains from their own stories. I have to say, I was tempted. As a narcissistic egomaniac villain myself, naturally I am most fond of my own villains. But my favorite villain of my own creation is from book 2 in The December People Series, and mentioning that name would be a spoiler for those of you who haven't read it yet, so I will keep mum.

But that's okay, there are lots of other villains that I like. I'm sure you will all be shocked that I have chosen a character from Harry Potter as my favorite villain...

At the end of the day, I think Snape's intentions were too noble to make him an official villain, but obviously that's what I like about him. He's a hero and a villain all wrapped up into one. He's remarkably brave and can love fiercely, but he's also a big greasy-haired meanie.

As a special welcome to new visitors from the hop, I'd like to giveaway book 1 and book 2 of The December People Series--a series where the dark wizards are the heroes. Don't forget to also scroll down and enter the giveaway from Literary Addicts.

  1. It is hard for me to say if he is a villain or a hero. I think that is what makes him a great character :)

  2. I would have to go with Darth Vader, although he also redeems himself in the end!

  3. Favourite villain... I never could get over Voldemort...

  4. The original villain, Satan. All others are imitations.

  5. My favorite is Snape, too! He's probably my favorite character from HP. (This changes daily!)

  6. My favorite from books is He Who Must Not Be Named - you have to be at the top of the villains list to scare people so badly they won't say your name. In pop culture, the daleks (EXTERMINATE) and the angels in Doctor Who's Don't Blink episode. Plus, the creepy guys in the Buffy episode where the entire town loses the ability to speak. Freaky.

  7. I would have to go with the Joker from Batman. The Best.

  8. I would go with Hannibal Lector!!! He is scary!!!
