Welcome to the Dark Side


One of the best things an author can do is write an effective villain for their story! While readers almost always root for the good guys to triumph (I know I do!), there's always something fascinating about a person who is terrifying, ruthless and just plain evil. It's even cooler when the author reveals a surprise motive or past, which is one of my favorite kinds of twist. Hannah & I are tackling our favorite book villains today, and we hope you'll join us!

Who is the villain you love the most?

The Darkling was the first character that came to mind when I was thinking about my answer. There's something dangerously appealing about him, and learning more about who he is, what made him who he is and a few other things definitely increased his actual appeal. While he never completely won me over, there's seriously just something memorable about him. (first appearance: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo)

Who is the villain you hate the most?

This answer is probably not going to surprise most of you but Voldemort is definitely the top contender. I honestly hated him. Hated. Everything he stood for, everything he did, everything he plotted out - it was really smart, but also really gosh darn terrifying. (first appearance: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling)

Honestly, one of the villains I am most fascinated by is Bellatrix Lestrange. She's a crazy one, wild and uninhibited and impulsive and reckless. But she's got so much power too, and wielding it as a finely honed weapon actually demonstrates her intelligence and strategic mind. It was just really interesting to guess at and witness what she would do! (first appearance: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling)

  2. I love villain discussion, and I think the best kinds are the ones that you love to hate. However, I do think the worst villain of all time, the one I hate more than anything else, is Umbridge. Shudders. She creeps. Me. Out.

  3. I know they shouldn't be, but sometimes I think the villains in stories are more interesting than MCs! I especially like when the villain isn't a villain just for the sake of being bad; I love when there's a reason for their evil, the more twisted the better! (Although, sometimes that can go a bit too far, but that's another story!)

  4. I totally agree! The Darkling is a seriously bad dude, but, all the same, there's something appealing about his suaveness.

  5. A TRUE LIFE TESTIMONY....My name is JACK LYDIA, and I base in UK ...My life is back!!! After 2 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr ODUMA, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across a lot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their EX LOVER BACK............ SOME TESTIFY THAT HE RESTORE WOMB CURE CANCER, AND OTHER SICKNESS SOME TESTIFIED THAT HE CAN CAST A SPELL TO STOP DIVORCE AND ALSO CAST A SPELL TO WIN A LOTTERY, AND SO ON...........i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how She brought back her Ex lover in less than 3 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr oduma's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr oduma, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man...
