Feature & Follow Friday 04/26/2012

Welcome to another edition of Feature & Follow Friday brought to you by Parajunkee's View
& Alison Can Read.

This weeks question is:

Question: Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then "broke up with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her.

My answer: Not just yes, but hell yes! I fell in love with the Anita Blake series from the first book onward. I loved her interaction with Jean Claude and the fact that she was a vampire slaying necromancer. THEN, of course, it became all about the ardeur and I lost all respect for the series. Yes, yes, I am a prude when it comes to having a character sleep with several dozen men, and women, at the same time. I probably won't ever read another book in the series. However, in case I do, I want to state for the record that I will borrow it from the library before I will spend any of my hard earned money!

My runner up's are: Otto from the Disillusionist series; Donovan Caine from the Elemental Assassin series; Nina LaShay from the Underworld Detection Agency.

I am absolutely interested in what you have to say about my answer as well as learning
more about yours!

  1. AND ... that seems to be the consensus among everyone. LOL!

  2. I am like one of the only people I know that has NOT read Anita Blake series. I am always so iffy I want to read it or

  3. Good call on Anita. I almost used Otto, but I never liked him to begin with, lol!

    Yeah - my answer was long, but I get all carried away talking about my most hated characters!


  4. Haha! Donovan Caine is a given! Haven't read Anita yet though.

  6. Ha!! I never liked Otto so I couldn't pick him, lol. I also haven't read Anita Blake yet!!

  7. I'm a new GFC Follower! I completely agree that the Anita Blake has been going downhill.

  8. Otto, Otto, Otto...I can't say I "broke up" with him because I NEVER liked him!!!

  9. Anita topped my list as well. I'm not a prude, but if I want sex for sex's sake I'll read erotica. Keep it out of my urban fantasy, please. Old follower! My Follow

  11. CANNOT AGREE WITH YOU MORE! Ugh. I heard Laurel K. Hamilton talk once and she's such a kick ass lady - and these books are so hard to believe that they are coming from her. I just find it hard to believe! :( Quality has went way way way downhill!

    Happy Follow Friday!

  12. I gave up on the series around book 3. If I wanted porn without plot, I'd read fan fiction.

    New GFC Follower. My FF.

  16. I didn't even know she slept with many people at the same time. o.รด *sigh* I really don't know if I want to read the books. I mean, so many people are disappointed.. But that means that the first books were probably brilliant. c_c
