Coffee Shop Talks - Who do you LOVE to HATE?

There are so many villains that immediately come to my mind. Otto from Carolyn Crane's Disillusionists series is my most hated. A certain shapeshifter from Richelle Mead's Dark Swan series disgusts me the most. Valentine from The Mortal Instruments is the most twisted.

However, the villain that I love to hate is V'Lane from the crazy talented Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. V'Lane is a villain I love to hate, because, let's face it - is he really a villain? At times I think he is. Other times, he is definitely not a prototypical bad guy. He is firmly cemented in the gray area of villains and I like him stuck there just fine. V'Lane is a hot, sexy, powerful Fae that does a lot of things for the heroine of this series. He also commits one of the worst crimes to the heroine, as far as I am concerned. He is cocky and charming, egotistical and intelligent, with a huge helping of self-importance and a heaping dose of self-preservation. What makes V'Lane so diabolical is the lack of trust you have in him. You never know the reasons behind V'Lane's actions, but you can be sure he will always benefit from his decisions.

V'lane made my list of favorite villians too! You can't trust him, but he pulls you to him. Great choice!

OOO i totally forgot about Valentine! Great Picks! And congrats on the 2yr bday for Addicted 2 Heroines! Yay

I agree about V'lane, but I never really trusted him.
Of course there's always Nick from the Hollows series. He is a backstabbing idiot whom I love to hate.

I love villains & I do remember your answers from when you guys guested on our blog. The more evil they are, the better!

My faves would be Voldemort, Jeoffrey Lannister & his crazy mother and those damn villains in LOTR.

V'lane really is the ultimate bad guy you love to hate. Throughout the series I was always up and down about him until the last book. Yet at the same time I'm still not a hundred percent sure of him.

I've only read book one from the Fever series, so while V'lane is interesting, I wouldn't put him on my top villains list yet. In the beginning of the Hollows series, I loved to hate Al and Trent. Now I just love them and still love to hate Nick.

I can't think of a villain that I love to hate, but a villain that I love to love is Phoenix from the Violet Eden Chapters series!

The first thing that comes to mind is Lash from the BDB. I hear from the rumor mill that he is going to make another appearance.
