Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite Villains and Anti-Heros

Hey, ladies!

It's Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and The Bookish! Today's topic is one I'm really excited about, because it's all about villains! I love a good villain; they add to much to a story and a good hero needs an equally worthy villain. I'm also including a few of my anti-heroes, because I can't help but love them.

Roland from Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews

I really enjoy how deep Roland's history is, his interactions with Kate, and how sometimes he's just so vile, and others you can see why his people follow him. 

Blackjack Randall from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Okay, so this was more in the TV show than the book, but I couldn't help but include him on here. A sick, sick fuck, but the actor who played him did such a fantastic job on his character that I couldn't help being intrigued. 

 The Sinsar Dubh from the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning

Is there anything creepier than a book that can possess you? 

Javier from Sins and Needles by Karina Halle

That man was beyond screwed up, but I still wanted him.

Hugh D'Ambray from Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews

I actually really liked Hugh!

The Church from The Stars Never Rise by Rachel Vincent

They were creepy. So, so creepy. 

Ignazio from Monster in His Eyes

I liked him, a lot.
And then I felt weird because I often agreed with his reasons for how kill-happy he was. Awkward. 



  1. Ah I don't know any of these but hope to get to Outlander series soon. Great list!

  2. Curious about Ignazio. I've had this book on my Kindle for ages!

  3. Oh yes, the Sinsar Dubh. There was something absolutely terrifying about its conviction that it was good. (I still call it the Sinsar-Dub though, even though it's She-Sa-do or something like that. I can't help it!)

  4. Oh yes, I love Roland, he totally cracks me up. Great list!

  5. Oh gosh, I LOVE a good villain. They are great.

  6. mmmm I can't wait to read Magic Binds!!! Roland intrigues me lol

  7. Totally agree, Black Jack Randall was a serious villain. Poor Jaime AND he's like invinsible- just when you think he's dead- he'd back again!

  8. Oh yes Roland for sure. I do love a good villain to hate
