Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 8: Ethan Sullivan vs. Kaleb

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 8: Ethan Sullivan vs. Kaleb Comments on the last couple Alpha Showdown rounds have mentioned it’s getting harder to choose. We’re evil like that. Today’s no exception. It’ll be a good fight. We have master vampire Ethan Sullivan from Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires series up against the delicious Tk Kaleb from Nalini Singh’s Psy/Changeling series. The VBC team loves both these fierce men, and...

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 7: Raphael vs. Wrath

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 7: Raphael vs. Wrath It makes sense in a battle of ultimate alpha characters that we’d have the primo leaders of their respective worlds in this year’s Alpha Showdown. In Round 7 we have two of the biggest, baddest and most loved leaders. Raphael is an archangel—leading angels and vampires and watching over humans—from Nalini Singh’s excellent Guild Hunter series. Wrath is the vampire king in J.R....

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 5: Charles Cornick vs. Vlad

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 5: Charles Cornick vs. Vlad It’s all about the veterans in Round 5 of the Alpha Showdown. Neither of today’s alpha characters have won the battle before, but they both have fervent fanbases. Will this be their year? Charles Cornick from Patricia Briggs’ Alpha and Omega series is a powerful werewolf. Jeaniene Frost’s Vlad from the Night Prince series, though, is that Vlad. The ancient vampire has plenty of...

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 4: Slade vs. Gin Blanco

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 4: Slade vs. Gin Blanco This year brought the fresh meat to the Alpha Showdown. We had some first timers battle one another in Round 1, but this time out we have a newbie taking on a veteran. The vampire Slade from Teresa Gabelman’s The Protectors series is new to VBC, but his fans came out big time in the nomination rounds. Can this vampire take on one of our favorite assassins? Gin Blanco is a certified badass, and she...

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...
