I have to admit... I REALLY tried to avoid this type of matchup this early on. Clearly... my planning wasn't very good. How to choose between two Kenyon heroes? Well, I hear you when you complain this is a terrible match up because it is too hard to choose. I personally am completely with you on that. I am struggling with which one... But this is what you voted for (not that I blame you, I personally LOVE them both! :)) Fang and Darling got here by beating out Travis and Jamie Fraser and if that doesn't say it all about these two characters.... :)
Fang Kattalakis - BAD MOON RISING (Sherrilyn Kenyon/Dark/Were Hunter)
Who? Member of the Kattalakis liter - he is one of a set of sextuplets. To his brother Vane he will always be the "younger brother".
What? Were shifter whose primary form is that of a wolf. Hellchaser. Manager of the Sanctuary.
Mate? Aimee Peltier
What makes him special? Boyish charm mixed with a warrior mentality. His story is a Romeo and Juliet theme where he and his love Aimee refuse to have intimate relations because if they do, they could find out they are destined mates and it would cause them trouble with their families.
"...One thing that makes this one good is that it is very unique. Fang and Aimee's story takes place over at least two, maybe three years. So in that way, it is very different from most of the Dark Hunter books that cover only days. Second, I think that it is a great twist that these two fall in love before they become mates. Aimee and Fang develop feelings despite NO expectations that it could go anywhere or that it could lead to more. They are too different. In addition to being Kattagaria and Arcadian, they are a bear and a wolf - two breeds that should not mix."
And his competition...
Darling Cruel - BORN OF SILENCE (Sherrilyn Kenyon/The League)
Who? Darling is mostly human and lives in the Ichidian universe. He is the second of his siblings, but all the weight of their family falls on his shoulders. Presumed by just about everyone to be gay. Also known in the Sentella as Kere.
What? Heir to the Caronese throne, founding member of the Sentella, caretaker to his two younger siblings - and in some ways to his elder half sibling
Mate? Zarya Starska - his love since childhood.
What makes him special? I would say that Darling's greatest qualities are his capacity for love and forgiveness. Most people in his life have done him wrong at one time or another - and not a little wrong, either. Pretty BIG wrongs. But he is capable of forgiving the people he loves anything.
"Again, as just about ANY part of the story line is a spoiler of explaining how Darling ends up with a woman, the best I can do is make some comparisons. Take Acheron's capacity for gentleness and love despite his traumatic past. Throw in enough torture to make Zsadist's mistress from Lover Awakened look like a Sunday school teacher. Add a heroine with the depth and courage of Astrid from Dance with the Devil and you get a book that is edge of your seat good. And from someone who hates when a good portion of the book is spent on backstory and when the characters spend a significant portion of the book separated, it is truly saying something that this book - which does both - is still one that I currently rank at the top of my favorites list."
