Daily Contest #9 – WITCH FURY!

Here’s another chance to win one of Anya’s awesome Elemental Witches series!

Sarafina Connell is having the worst week of her life. It takes an even darker turn when an infamous playboy kidnaps her and reveals a world she never knew existed….

It’s a world where magick is real, and where Sarafina is given a chance to join a secret cabal that is bent on gaining absolute power. They could use a woman like her—a witch with an untapped gift for creating fire. But she isn’t about to get in league with the devil.

Rescued from her captors, Sarafina is introduced to a coven that is duty-bound to fight the forces of darkness. She’s pleased that her savior is the imposingly seductive Theo—until the trust between them goes up in flames. However, as the war between good and evil is waged, Sarafina and Theo realize they have no choice but to unite in the battle for supremacy—that’s getting hotter by the minute.

QUESTION OF THE DAY: who were your favorite fictional characters in 2009?

I’ll choose a winner via random.org and post it first thing tomorrow. WINNERS HAVE SEVEN DAYS TO CLAIM THEIR PRIZES!

    I though Mercy Thompson from Patrica Briggs books kicked ass, and I loved the eternal spinster from Gail Garrigers Soulless.
    A good year

    I like Nick Hamilton from Megan Hart’s Deeper, and Jackson Bledsoe from Anna J. Evans Skin Deep alot. Both mysterious and male, just like I love’em. And I like JD from Scrubs, he is so silly and funny, I can’t get enough seeing him “treating” the patients…

    I have to say Ivory Malinov from Christine Feehan’s Dark Slayer. She was so cool. And of course, every year Sookie Stackhouse from the Charlaine Harris series as well. Love Sookie. Go team Eric!

    Maxine Kiss from Marjorie M. Liu’s The Iron Hunt & Darkness Calls. She’s a kick ass heroine for sure. Then there’s Torin from the Lords of the Underworld series by Gena Showalter. & Myst the Coveted was a personal favourite from Kresley Cole’s The Warlord Wants Forever.

    Ohh that is a tough one, I love so many!
    Lizzie from Angie Fox’s Demon Slayer Series, Kitty in the Kirry Norville series, Allie in the Allie Beckstrom by Devon Monk, Mercy Thompson & Anna Cormac by Patricia Briggs, Meredith Gentry by Laurall K Hamilton, Sookie by Charlaine Harris…and so many others!

    Narrowing down to favorites would be Merit from the Chicagoland Vampire series by Chloe Neill and Rachel from the Hollows by Kim Harrison. I also really liked Iri & Jet from the Icarus Project by Caitlin Kittridge & Jackie Kessler.

    There were quite a few so it’s hard to pick. But I guess I’d say it was the last two I just read about – Hunter and Tessa in “To Tempt the Wolf” by Terry Spear. Now that’s a werewolf I’d love to meet.
    Happy New Year.

    I have to agree with Rhonda, Acheron really came to life for me in the audio book version my husband and I listened to while we were sick with swine flu.

    I don’t know that I had a favorite “new” character this year. I stuck with series books I was well into. So the favorite character though they were not new to me must be Acheron.

    I met so many new characters in 2009 it’s hard to choose! Rose and Dmitri from Vampire Academy, or Faythe, Marc, and Jayce from Rachel Vincent’s Werecat series I think would be up there at the top!

  25. Esther

    Jason Stackhouse from True Blood. He is as dumb as box of hair but has a good heart and had given me some of the biggest laughs.

  26. Julie
    December 31st, 2009 at 9:27 am · Link

    I’d have to say Charles and Anna from Patricia Briggs’ Alpha and Omega series are heavy contenders. 🙂

    I still really Keri Arthur’s Riley Jensen. And I found Sookie Stackhouse this year (or was it last year?). Also, Jordan Summers’ Red and Morgan. Hope next year brings me more to love…and hate.

    There are too many to choose from! If I had to be pinned down to one book I would pick Jamie and Claire from An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon.

  30. Daniela Caldarola
    December 31st, 2009 at 10:23 am · Link

    It’s true, there are SO MANY characters to choose from but I’ll try 🙂
    The whole breed series by Lora Leigh is the best! Mercury War is fantasticaly hot and sexy! (how can you pass up a name like that!)
    The whole Nightwalker and Shadowdweller series from Jacquelyn Frank. I think Eliah is my favorite! But Magnus and Dae are by far the best couple ever! The way JF weaves a world not just a story is spellbinding and so detailed!
    Cat and Bones for sure!
    Mercy Thompson is so strong yet there is a vulnerability I love!
    Kitty the werewolf rocks!
    The whole dragon series from G.A. Aiken is awesome! Fearghus and Annwyl are my faves!
    And my new fave character is Kathryn Smith’s Nighmare Chronicles: Dawn, the daughter of the King of Dreams. She is waking up to her powers (pardon the pun!) but she is down to earth!
    Can you tell I’ve been reading alot this year?

    The characters I enjoy are series books. I enjoyed the Drake Sisters and the ghostwalker series by Christine Feehan. I like the Meredith Gentry men from Laurell K Hamilton. Under the dome by Stephen King was great. Mona Lisa Series by Sunny. I really enjoyed the Elemental Witches series by Anya Bast. I like books that have the otherworld and women with a lot of powers. I like Dallas and Roarke from J D Robb books and Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich.
