Favorite Characters

I had a celebration and give away over on my Facebook Author Page last week, celebrating hitting 4000 likes.  Pretty exciting for me and I asked people to leave a comment on who their favorite character was from one of my books.  The response was overwhelming (yay!) and I tallied the "votes" and thought I share with my blog readers.

I also thought, since I have a box of SCENT OF MAGIC books sitting in my office, I'd offer a signed copy to a random commenter on my blog.  Now this time I want to know who your favorite obscure/minor character of mine is :)  Contest open until November 23 - and please leave a contact email so I can notify you if you win (Goodreads friends you don't need to put your email - I can find you :)

Favorite Characters of my Facebook Readers:

#1 Valek - 236
#2 Yelena - 151
#3 Ari and Janco - 65
Avry - 39
Opal - 37
Trella - 23
Belen - 11
Devlen - 10
Kade, Leif & Kiki - 9
Kerrick - 8
Moon Man - 6
Flea - 5
The Commander - 4
Fisk & Sheepy - 2
Riley, Ava, Heli & Tohon - 1

  7. Belen! I love Poppa Bear. He may be a minor character in the Healer series, but he's a big guy with a big heart!

    And can I just say how excited I am that you're writing more in the Study series!?! I might do a re-read just in honor of that announcement! :D

  9. WOW, so many excellent characters. So favourite minor character...
    I do love Belen, (does he count as minor) He's the sort of character that you know will always appear to try to make things better.

  10. Reema!! Tough little girl with lots of potential :)
    Also Mara, I want a sister like her :D

  11. From your study series I love Kiki and Fisk. But from your insiders series I love Zippy, he may not be an actual character, more like an object, but he helps Trella in a lot of ways

  12. I think mine has to be Nutty :) She's just too cute.

  16. Sheepy or Fisk! They're just too cool for words!

  17. Definitely Pazia. She has a strong magical presence and effect on Opal at the start of the Glass series, without really being present. After her horrific, befalling circumstances, she grows into a kind hearted beautiful person who has carefully placed life priorities. Anyone can learn from her growth experience.

      No question, it's Logan from Inside Out/Outside In for me. Loved him. He was so adorable and smart and I really wanted to hug him.

  21. Kiki. Hands down. I would love to hear a conversation between her and Ari and Janko

    ReplyDelete
  22. I can see i am not alone in this, but I would have to say Kiki as well. I love how she thinks and I absolute love the way that the horses come up with names for everyone.

  26. mama from touch of power, i think she's an amazing character so warm and carring, she brought a homely touch to that scene and i respected her. I know its just a book but characters inspire and she was just what the story needed.

  27. The sand seed horses and Kiki I love that they talk to people's. Srosch@adams50.org

  28. Oh I like Moon Man and Kiki quite a lot. But I think I'll choose Moon Man :)

  31. Quartz, definitely, from that one scene in the last chapter of Spy Glass. And Devlen's my favorite major character.

    ReplyDelete
  32. For me, it would have to be either Dilana, Zitora, or Mama. Probably Zitora, because her spectum runs from warm and loving with Yelena, to tough and resourceful when on her adventures with Opal.

  33. Belen love is protectiveness of avery

  34. I absolutely adore Mom in Touch of Power :)

  36. Congrats on getting 4000 likes!! My favourite characters will always be Yelena and Valek! They're so sweet together! But I do like our dear Poppa Bear a lot too. :D

  38. Got to be YELENA. she has got such an interesting past and i find her mind so interesting. it's a close call between Yelena and Valek because i really want to know his past because it is so secret; but yelena wins for me!

  39. I'm going to say Dax from the Study series . I thought he was quite funny and wish there had been more of him in the books .

  40. Bain from the Study Series was a favorite minor character of mine! He seemed like a cool level-headed guy. I liked that he didn't rush to conclusions. He was a very wise master magician!

    I also really liked Mom from Touch of Power. I can't wait to read more about her in Scent of Magic!

    Valek is my number one. I just love the type of man he is...mysterious, dangerous, reserved and calculating... yet when he is with Yelena he is warm and loving and open with her. Plus He gets bonus points for stone carving, as an artist myself that speaks to the creator in me. Yummmm, Valek.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Have to agree Kiki is a favorite of mine too. Also, it was so good to hear another Study might be in the works. I'm going to join the author of a previous comment with a celebratory re-read of the series thus far!

  43. I'd have to go with Fisk!

  46. I love Kiki. She is the most amazing character, even though she's a horse. She helps Yelena and is sometimes smarter than the people she is around. I can't believe she didn't make the top favortie characters!!! :/

  47. Scratch that, she did make the top favorites, but I can't believe she wasn't ranked higher!!!

  48. I think my favourite minor character is Pazia Cloud Mist for the good character dev't

  50. Definitely Fisk. So much potential! It was so fun to see the trigger of events that happened with him due to Yelena. :D andi[at]rywn.net

  52. Minor Character is so vauge!
    I think your favorite would be Esa? Yelana's Father! He is just a great personality!

    ReplyDelete
  53. For me it's Logan, not seeing much from your Inside Out novels but I love techy characters and Logan really develops as a character to me, Broken Man comes in second.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Well, Valek and Yelena will always be my favorites but since they are the main characters and this request was for obscure/minor characters . . . I'm going to say Ari and Janco. They aren't exactly obscure or all that minor, but they are more minor than Valek/Yelena/the main protagonists.

    It's funny that after reading so many books of yours I still go back to the first one for favorites. Looking at the results from your facebook page, I guess I am not the only one in that boat :).

    Thanks so much for having the giveaway here! I can't wait for Scent of Magic to be released, it has perfect timing - it will be released shortly after my exam period ends, just when I will finally have time to read again :).

  56. My favorite minor/obscure character from your books would have to be Fisk. He has really become a developed character since his debut in Magic Study & I love his tenacity. If you ever decide to create a spin-off series starring him, I would definitely read it. :)

  57. My favorite would have to be Noelle.
    I think she did well, surviving on her own like that and then getting into such a position that she can actually have some influence over the world around her.
    Frankly, had I been in the same situation I would resent my sister to, although I don't really think she does......
    She is strong and I love that.

    After that Ari and Janco. Do you really have to ask why?

  58. I have to say Tuli -Opel's sister- not very obscure but very inspiring!
    I just finished re-reading the Study Trilogy and am going to start the Glass one again tonight... they're almost better the second time around!!

    Oh and Ari and Janco do rock and I think we should start looking for someone that could play Valek for when they make the movie!

  59. I love Yelena as a main character. If I have to pick a minor one, it's probably the Commander. A very interesting character..

  60. Ok so I just finished the first book in the glass series and am waiting for the next two to arrive in the mail. I feel like my favorite minor character is gonna be from that series but since I haven't finished it yet I'm not gonna pick from there.

    I'd haveta say that Rand and Cahil fascinated me because there was a lot of good in them but they were very troubled and easily influenced. Because of this you never knew what they were gonna do next! And I think they both took a better path in the end!

  62. My favorite minor character is Rand and my name is Jessica, jessicaffa@siu.edu :) My favorite major character is definitely Avry, her healing magic is very cool!

  65. I would have to say my favourite minor character of all your series is Rand. He was just such a human character (not saying the others weren't :P) He struck a chord with me in how he gave into his weakness, but in the end redeemed himself so thoroughly. It made me think what he could've done had he gone a different path.
    Sorry for the long comment, i really like your characters XD

  66. My favorite minor character is Maren. She's like a moody older sister that teaches bad-ass bow defense. I always felt a bit bad for her because of her crush on Valek and her friendship with Yelena. And I love how she comes back in Fire Study to help the group when they really need it. Love all your books.

  70. To pick one character is so hard! My favourite minor character would have to be either Kiki or Fisk. But I also love Belen (Papa bear haha!) and Dax (always so nice and friendly).

    I absolutely can't wait for Scent of Magic!!! Loved Touch of Power :D Let's see what Avry and Kerrick will do next!
