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.

What about you?

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
@Jennifer TheBookNympho Thanks for the list, although I already knew who you were rooting for. 😛
you don’t have Barrons on your list!? he is my gold standard for alpha males 🙂
@Sharon Stogner It’s not my list… otherwise you can bet your ass that he’d be number 1!
Eric Northman all the way!
Wow, I have a lot of series I should read! I’ve only read Downside Ghosts. I love Terrible though!
@emmameade.com I was tempted to pick him too but he and Bones are very similar when you think about it so I had to choose one.
@Nicola Maybe I should check out that series. There must be a reason why Terrible is winning the official poll.
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.
I’d have to go with Eric Northman…he is pure yumminess.
@Amber I @ Awesomesauce Ethan’s not bad either. Good choice.
@Lisa He is that!
Kate for sure but Curran is definitely worthy of the title as well. 🙂
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.
