SO, fairy tale princes and heroes... that's tough... even more so, being Romanian. If it comes down to my Romanian herritage, my hero comes from a poem and it's named Hyperion or The Evening Star. Hyperion falls in love with an emperor's daughter, Cătălina, and leaves his place on the sky to ask to ask his father to make him mortal, as the emperor's daughter had asked, so they can be together. But while he's gone, Cătălina falls in love with a boy in the palace and forgets about Hyperion who's willing to give immortality up for her.
Hyperion is a true prince/hero because of the moral values he shows in spite of being hurt by Cătălina. This rather sad, but beautiful poem was written by Mihai Eminescu and it is one of my favourites.
It's only fit to mention Ryn from The Creepy Hollow series after this sad story because he has his own sad story and a strong personality. And he's dark-haired! (just like I like it! - please, don't question my preferences!)
In movies, Tv shows and animees, I love a diversity of heroes: Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice,
In books, my heroes would be: Adrian Ivashkov from The Vampire Academy and Bloodlines,
And... Rachel says:
It's release day for The Faerie Prince, the second novel in the Creepy Hollow series! Woohoo! If you're keen to read it, you can find it at the following places online:
Guardian trainee Violet Fairdale is just weeks away from one of the most important occasions of her life: graduation. After messing up big time by bringing a human into the fae realm, Vi needs to step up her game and forget about Nate if she hopes to graduate as the top guardian of her year. Everything would be fine if she wasn’t forced to partner with Ryn, her ex-friend, ex-enemy, current ‘sort of friend’. They might be trying to patch up their relationship, but does she really want to spend a week undercover with him for their final assignment? On top of that, the possibly insane Unseelie Prince is still on the loose, free to ‘collect’ as many specially talented faeries as he can find—and Vi is still at the top of his list. Add in faerie queens, enchanted storms, complicated not-just-friends feelings, and a murder within the Guild itself, and graduation is about to become the least of Vi’s problems.
|In celebration, The Faerie Guardian is on sale for a limited time!|
