Calling all Kate Daniels fans.
Who do you just love to hate? Which character simply gets your goat? (the lame one Erra used to conquer a city.)
Inquiring minds want to know.
Edit: Inquiring minds are focusing on the baddies from the main KD series today. That’s why Moloch, Landon Nez etc are not in play. Yet 😉
In the ring today:
Should be a no brainer, right? We begrudge him his hubris, and the monstrous things he concocts whilst playing with human lives. And yet… the road to hell really is paved with good intentions and a lot of charm.
Sure, she takes out a kill contract on Kate, ’nuff said. But the worst thing about her is that she deals a different kind of pain altogether. Lorelei goes for the low blow and tries to insert herself in Kate’s place with no regard for what she’s breaking up. And she stands for all the things we hate, from manipulation to weakness and pick me energy. Let’s face it, it doesn’t matter that she did not succeed, she’s just villainous.
Monster is as monster does. He comes from the furthest recesses of time and embodies the nightmares that never really disappear. War, terror, subjugation. What’s not to hate?
She knows what she did.
Pour one out for Aunt B. RIP kind, gentle angel. Aunt B would never have been hard on us. (Magic Binds, page 68 😉 before you ask what’s wrong with me. We could be here all day otherwise)
In the immortal words of the Angevin: “If that man was in charge of nothing except his own dick, sooner or later he’d suspect it of presenting a danger to humanity.” He lets his prejudices drive him to madness, and picks a “holy” war that sacrifices many worthy lives for nothing. He’s the evil we’ve all met.
Jim does everything for the benefit of the Pack. But what about the friends he hurts? He shows no devotion to Kate and betrays Curran after all they went through. If you don’t expect much from an enemy, but you can’t forgive a friend’s lack of loyalty, you blame Jim.
Ooooooooo. I can hear the sound of Kindles being dropped in outrage. Yes, that’s right, we’re going spicy 😈. Have you still not forgiven him for Mishmar, Curran’s legs, Mauro? Do you only read Iron and Magic in the dark where no one can see you? Vote for everyone’s favourite baddie.
Surprise contender. Before Kate’s mother magically coerced him into loving her, he was already Roland’s warlord, and we all know what kind of man Roland wanted to fill that job opening. We don’t really get to meet Voron, but he raises a child as a weapon, denying her any normality. He turns her into a killing machine and sets the entire thing in motion. And is it really for her own benefit or for the sake of his pain and hatred? His choices damn him, you know they do.
