Julie's Question - Yummy Men and Kick Ass Chicks
by Yummy Men and Kick Ass Chicks and Vampire Book Club

This week, Julie’s question is piggy backing off of Chelsea and Candace’s Alpha Showdown event over at Vampire Book Club. The biggest challenge I had with this week’s query was only picking one alpha!

The candidates are:

  • Bones from the Night Huntress series
  • Rachel Morgan from the Hollows series
  • Charles Cronick from the Alpha & Omega series
  • King Dorian from the Dark Swan series
  • Lothaire from the Immortals After Dark series
  • Cat a.k.a. the Red Reaper from the Night Huntress series
  • Dmitri from the Guild Hunter series
  • Gin Blanco from the Elemental Assassin series
  • Ethan Sullivan from the Chicagoland Vampires series
  • Atticus O’Sullivan from The Iron Druid Chronicles series
  • Curran from the Kate Daniels series
  • Hawke from the Psi-Changeling series
  • Eric Northman from the Sookie Stackhouse series
  • Tohrment from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series
  • Terrible from the Downside Ghosts series
  • Kate Daniels from the Kate Daniels series

In all fairness, I haven’t read 50% of these series’ so I’m basing my answer on the books that I have read. That being said, my pick for top dog is Bones from the Night Huntress series. If you’re a fan of these novels then I’m sure many of your reasons will be the same as mine but for those of you who *gasps* aren’t familiar with Bones… shame on YOU!

Okay, in all seriousness, what’s not to love about this alpha male? Aside from beyond drop dead gorgeous with a swoon worthy English accent; Bones’ enemies shake in their boots at the mere mention of his name. He’s super-charged with preternatural power, over two centuries old and a professional contract killer. Oh, and if you mess with his wife Cat he won’t rest until you’re dead.

  1. Even though Bones is high on my Alpha list I was so hoping that Terrible from the Downside series would win. But since Kate beat him in last night round my vote goes for Curran to take the #1 spot this year.

    Here is my list of favorite alphas:
    JZB – Fever Series
    Terrible – Downside Series
    Bones – Night Huntress Series

  2. Man that is hard, I am sad Terrible is out already. I don’t know who I would want. Charles is awesome, Dorian too, oh and Ethan. I love Bones he would be in my top 5.

  3. Okay, if Barrons was on the list it would be between him and Curran. But since he’s not, Curran wins hands down. Well, Kate too. Dang it. Final answer: Kate and Curran are the top alphas.
