Top 10 Villains Tag

Welcome readers!  Before I begin my post, I wanted to share the link for a very short book that is FREE this week!!  Check it out and then hop on back to read my post! =)  It's only 15 pages, but still would be a fun quick read!  (I have not read it yet, so I don't know if it's a good piece or not) =)  Debt of Mercy by Amanda Tero

I was tagged by Jane for the top 10 villains tag! Thank you Jane! =)  I was excited about this post...but it was very, very hard to come up with ten villains!  I had to go all over our book shelves and movies to find them.  I want to warn you that there might be some spoilers, so you may want to skip over characters that you have not yet met. =) 
Presenting...





Rules:
1. Post the picture
2. Thank the blogger who tagged you
3. List your top ten favorite villains and why you chose them 
(they can be from movies or books)
4. Tag ten other bloggers.

The Mistress

The Mistress is from a novel by Katie GraceThe Song of the Desert.  (not yet published) She asked for Beta readers in March, and I was SO excited to read it!  Her book is fantastic...I can't wait until it comes out so all of you can read it too!  Anyway, Katie created a wonderful villain in the Mistress.  She is cruel but feels like a real person.  I (as a reader) didn't want her punished as much as I wanted her eyes to be opened to the pain she caused...but that's just me. =)





Darth Vader.jpg

Darth Vadar

Okay...so I just watched Star Wars for the first time in December.  But Darth Vadar was one of the villains that stood out to me.  He has a sad past, and in the end he shows that he's not completely evil.  He still has some good in him.






Jadis (aka The White Witch)

The reason that Jadis is one of my favorite villains is because she's in my favorites series.  Lol!  But I love how C.S. Lewis portrayed her in The Chronicles of Narnia.  She represents sin and everything vile in this world...and can only be destroyed by Aslan, the great Lion who represents Jesus Christ.  How much better could that get?!






Nellie Oleson

Haha...she's a hilarious character in Little House on the Prairie.  Nellie is stuck up, arrogant, and high maintenance.  Unfortunately, she lives in the middle of a small town with mainly poorer farmers.  She becomes Laura's dire enemy and tries to embarrass and harass her at all times.  This makes the movie series quite enjoyable to watch.  And by the end of the series, Nellie grows up and grows to be a very likable woman and mother. =)






King Darrow

I couldn't find a picture of King Darrow from The Wilderking Trilogy...but he is a great villain nevertheless.  His character represents King Saul.  He is crazy, just wants to be promoted, and doesn't care about anyone else.  But the way that the main character, Aiden, respects and honors the king even when Darrow wants him killed is very noble.  I love this series!!






My Villain

Can I pick my own villain for this tag??  I hope so...
Anyway, my villain is from The Mystery of the Midnight Trespasser.  I can't give you a name, because it would give away part of the story. =)  But I enjoyed creating him, trying to make him feel real to the readers...anyway...I hope you liked reading about him if you have been able to read my novella. =)






Emperor Daican

Emperor Daican is a merciless ruler who wants everyone to serve and pay homage to only him.  When some stand up for their beliefs in Elôm, he is outraged.  Resistance shows someone standing up for her faith in God and how we should have courage to do the same.





 

Mikkel

Mikkel is only selfish, teenage boy.  Yet, when he leads his viking ships to raid villages, he ruins lives forever.  Through the series, he becomes more likable as he sees what he's really doing to the captured people's lives.  Raiders from the Sea is a fantastic book by a Christian author!



<b>Shadow Spinner</b> FA67 

The Sultan
 
The Sultan is a pompous man whose heart was broken by his wife.  He never forgave her, and thus announces that he will marry a new woman every day and kill her the next morning.  One woman risks her life to save the women of the country by telling him tales that he can't resist.  The Sultan is shown as a prideful man, but in the end you see that he is really just trying to fill in the hole in his life.  I enjoyed reading Shadow Spinner and it shows how people lived in that time period.

The Lady of the Green Kirtle

 This villain is from The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis.  She is a sly witch with the ability to turn herself into a snake.  Her goal: to completely destroy Narnia.  Through the help of Aslan, two children are sent off to rescue the Prince of Narnia who was captured by her.

  1. Ooh, you've read Viking Quest! I LOVE them! I absolutely loved Mikkel from his very first appearance, though I couldn't have given a very good reason why, I just did. (I love the ending of that series, it's sooo perfect. I was just sailing away on my ship of happiness)
    I concur: the Mistress was a great villain!

    So glad you could do the tag, Hosanna! Cool to see who you chose. :)

    1. I loved reading through The Viking Quest several years ago! We don't have the complete series, and the person we borrowed it from moved away. =( I would definitely recommend you trying it out though!

      May I ask what the book abs is? I think I've heard of it, but I'm not sure. =)

      Thank you for commenting, Anika!!

    1. Haha....yes...finding my "favorite" villains? What if I don't like any villains? =)

      Thank you! I had to search all over to find something that would work for my villain...because I can't give anything away. =) I don't own that photo, but I think it fits pretty well. =)

      I hope you can read it!!! Please do!! =D

      Thanks for commenting, Ariel!

  5. Lol, what a funny post, Hosanna! Me and Emily were saying that we would have nothing to put for this tag because we don't read or watch any villain type movies or books. Nellie Olson is a hilarious villain though! =D

    1. LOL...well, I didn't tag you this time! So you're safe. =) It was hard for me to choose as well, because I don't usually watch or read anything with villains. =)

      Yes, Nellie is very funny! She makes the movie series much more interesting and enjoyable!! =) And later in the series, Nancy(adopted by Mrs. Olson)is very similar. =)

      Thank you for commenting, Hannah!!

    2. Yes, Nellie is a funny villain. We haven't watched all the Little House on the Prairie episodes, so I had NO CLUE Mrs. Olson adopted!!! It's so weird that I didn't know! =)

    3. Haha...yes, I went and double checked on Mrs. Oleson adopting Nancy. =) I think it is near the end of the series, but I'm not certain...when Nellie moves out, someone has to take her place, right? =)

  6. Oh, I LOVE Raiders from the Sea!! And yeah, Mikkel is pretty unlikable at first, but the ending of the series... ahh!!! I love it so much! <3 And the Viking Quest series is one of my very favorite series, so ... ;)
    Thank you so much for tagging me! I will try to get a post up soon! :)

      LOL...I hadn't heard of anyone liking The Viking Quest other than me...but here everyone is raving over it! LOL. I haven't read it for years, but it was one of my favorites too. =)

      Have you read any other books by Lois Walfrid Johnson? She has several incredible series!!! I loved all of the books that I read by her. =)

      Thank you for commenting, Jesseca!!

    3. I'm glad you enjoy them. =) I love to find out what my readers enjoy the most, so I can avoid the less well-liked type of posts. (not less-liked topics, because some topics aren't popular but are so important to remember) ;)

  8. AHHH, Hosanna! You make me so happy. :D I was so excited to see the Mistress up there. She's a tricky villain to write, but I do like her and am excited to explore her more in the sequel. :)

    Oh, I remember the Viking's Quest! ... barely. :P I have read them at some point, but it was so long ago. I do remember loving them, though.

    1. Yes, the Mistress is a super complex villain to create, I'm sure... but her character is amazing! She was one of the few "bad guys" that I actually enjoyed reading about. =) And I can't wait to read more about her in the sequel! Do you have a name for it as of yet?

      Haha...yeah. That was me when I wrote this post! My mom is reading The Viking Quest aloud to the whole family now! So I remember how much I liked it! =D You should re-read it sometime... =)

      Thank you for commenting, Katie!!
