This week's question comes from Mia who blogs at Girl About Books:
"Who's your all-time favorite book villain?"
I tend to enjoy books that have a conflict rather than a villain as it's driving force, so this is difficult. But as I am a character person (as opposed to a plot person), I like my villains to be complex, preferably tortured souls, who have misguided reasons for doing what they do.
So I choose The Queen of Attolia from the book The Queen of Attolia, (which is the sequel to The Thief) simply because she does something unforgivable to the beloved protagonist, Gen, that makes you just want to hate her forever. However, as I said I like my characters complex and layered, so your feelings toward the Queen change as you read the book. It's excellent - if you haven't heard of these books, go read them right now!!!
