Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 14: Kaleb vs. Curran

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 14: Kaleb vs. Curran Today’s match will determine the second alpha to enter the final round. These characters are just a fight away from the championship match. So, clearly, they’re badasses. Kaleb from Nalini Singh’s Psy/Changeling series took out not one, but two vampires to make it to this round. The Beast Lord Curran from Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series easily beat Simon in the first round, but...

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 11: Kate Daniels vs. Wrath

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 11: Kate Daniels vs. Wrath It’s been a wicked Alpha Showdown so far. Both the characters in today’s match had lots of fans come out for them in their first rounds. But they both won by only a handful of votes. Will this round be the same? Kate Daniels from the Ilona Andrews’ series of the same name took out Bones, and Wrath from J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood beat the archangel Raphael. It’s...

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 10: Curran vs. Barrons

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 10: Curran vs. Barrons It’s time for former Alpha Showdown champions to battle one another. We expect this is going to be a difficult round for everyone, especially these two alphas. The Beast Lord Curran from Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series easily beat Simon in the first round. (Though to be fair, many commenters said they had to read The Others series to find out more about Simon. And they should! The books are...

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 6: Curran vs. Simon

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 6: Curran vs. Simon This is going to be a good match. Curran from Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series is a past champion of the Alpha Showdown. Simon, from Anne Bishop’s The Others novels, made the battle last year, but wasn’t quite enough of an alpha at the time. Those who nominated him this year say it’s time to recognize the wolf shifter. Can he beat the lion? You decide. We’ve lined up...

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 3: Kate Daniels vs. Bones

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 3: Kate Daniels vs. Bones We told you from the start that the Alpha Showdown would be brutal. We’re only three matches in, and we’ve already had to make tough choices. Round 2 is still open, and it’s very close between Jane and Barrons. Kate Daniels isn’t scared of a vampire, but we doubt Bones is scared of anything. He’s battled some heavy hitters before. In an alternate universe, these two would...
