Anti-hero challenge

Written by Kirsten on April 21st, 2012

Quickie post for the latest challenge; will add images and formatting and such when I’m at the computer, but Xander is cozy and asleep on my hip, so I’m not going to disturb him :)

The first anti-hero that came to my mind is Peter Wiggin from the Ender saga and parallel novels by Orson Scott Card. He isn’t really fully developed until the second series, which starts with Ender’s Shadow, but if I remember correctly, Xenocide begins the task of making him a person and not only a memory of an evil, heartless older brother. I highly recommend both series, and actually should reread the shadow series myself sometime soon.

There are also some great anti-heroes/villains in Brandon Mull’s Fablehaven series, but as alliances and enemies aren’t all clear and without question, I don’t want to spoil for anyone – absolutely a must-read series if you love good YA fantasy, though!

Back to The Bloggess, now; exactly halfway through the book and love, love, loving it.

  1. The World Wide Web is an important marketing medium and to gain success
    in this arena a marketer should have well planned online marketing strategy.
    Failing to do so makes it certain for the company
    to falter drastically in the longer run. On the
    other hand, someone driving a car who sees a billboard, will at best be interested
    and might decide to get more information at some time.

  2. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve visited this blog before but
    after looking at many of the posts I realized it’s new to me.

    Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking it
    and checking back often!
