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...

That means the battles in the first rounds are determined by the number of votes each character receives. It makes sure the top two vote-getters don’t end up facing each other in the first round. Unfortunately, sometimes it means we have to pit husband again wife. Like right...
