I’m finally back with Why I Love Wednesdays… hosted by Reflections of a Bookaholic. This week’s topic is “Favorite Villain”.
Since I recently read Destined, book nine of the House of Night series by P.C. and Kristin Cast, I thought I would talk about Neferet.
First of all, Neferet is seriously twisted. I wouldn’t want to meet that woman/vampyre in a dark alley, that’s for sure. She is manipulative and dangerous. If you haven’t read the series, I don’t want to ruin anything, but the woman is straight up EVIL. I really don’t understand why everyone doesn’t see all the crazy stuff she gets away with, or why most of the other vampyres/fledglings still follow her. Only Zoey, the protagonist, and her friends see what’s really going on. Of course, if everyone saw what the woman was really doing, there wouldn’t be much of a story, would there? It’s rare for me to want even a villain to die as much as I want Neferet to die. That’s how awful she is. The Cast duo would have to do some extremely fancy footwork to make Neferet redeemable.
Now, I know this is supposed to be all about a villain, but I have one more thing to say about the House of Night series. Stark=major yum. Even if you have no interest in vampire books, or crazy evil Neferet, read the series for him. I love me some Stark. He doesn’t show up until book four, Untamed, so stick with it. I guarantee he’s worth it (especially when he starts talking in a Scottish accent).
