Alpha Showdown Round 9: Bones vs. Cat


VBC Presents: ALPHA SHOWDOWN 2011Before we say anything else: You voted for this.

It’s time to start the secondary rounds. Each alpha left in the running has now taken down one opponent. Unfortunately, that means the competition is now tougher. And, well, it doesn’t get much harder than putting a married couple up against one another, but here we go. You must pick either the hero or the heroine from Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series. Will it be Bones or Cat? Teacher or student? Both can fight. Both can kill. Only one can advance.

You can get a refresher on just what this Alpha Showdown thing is here, but a key point to remember: Each poll is open for only 48 hours. Then, the champion will advance to the next round until only one alpha remains. So, vote while you can. (Jump to the poll)

    This one is too damn difficult!!!

  2. Bones Vs. Cat – WOW -This one is a little bit hard to decide… ok Cat… no, better Bones… or not, better Cat… or not, better Bones… *headdesk*

  3. Jo says:

    OMG Ontence! This is the hardest choice ever! Cat – Bones – Cat – Bones………

  4. Kat says:

    It’s hard to decide…well women should support each other …….but i’ll go with Bones xD

  5. Candace says:

    Anybody want to rock paper scissors this one out with me?

    Cat should get a vote just for having Justina as a mom.

    Bones should get the vote for…well, he’s Bones. One of the three on this showdown I could see as the Ultimate Alpha.

    Never mind. I made my decision:)

  6. Trader says:

    Okay, Bones is one awesome alpha-male, but so much of his persona results from his deep, unquestionable, love for Cat. And in all honesty, Cat has sucked down quite a few new powers herself, and her latest ability to command the dead really puts her in the alpha-female category. So the girl gets my vote…

  7. Yadie says:

    I voted for Bones. But regardless of who wins, it will end up in hot sex. So who cares?! Lol.

  8. Sara H says:

    Gotta go with Bones. I know, I know all that women stick together, bla bla bla feminist stuff, but DUDE! He’s so HOT! OF course he also survived life in a brothel, an Australian prison colony, Patra, Gregor and, don’t forget, the mother-in-law from Hell, Justina.
    There’s also Chapter 32 to contend with in which he was doing most of the work.
    Yep! Gotta go with Bones.

  9. Smash Attack says:

    Beyond unfair…lol. I’m choosing Bones though, because he taught her how to be a better fighter, he’s a master vamp, etc. Oh, and he smexy as hell.

  10. Renee says:

    Well this was by far the toughest battle. Bones is hot and an alpha male for sure. But Cat is the alpha female! I love them both but my vote is for Cat!

  11. Leena says:

    Ok, you KNOW Bones is gonna let her win… he loves her too much not to…
    The only reason why he would win is yes, he’s more powerful and they may agree for him to go on the alpha showdown only because later they may have to face someone stronger and he may be able to beat…
    So yes, it’s hard to decide… but I voted for Cat anyway… I know Bones will win, but I super the girl for trying 🙂

  12. Shirleyjo says:

    I cannot believe these two are pitted against each other. But if I have to choose, it’s Bones. He loves her. He would die for her. He’s taught Cat everything she knows (and boy does he know a lot), but he is the Alpha in their relationship!

  13. barbara says:

    Wow, this one is so cruel! I’ll have to go with Bones, after all he is a master vampire. He will win, but they’ll still “celebrate” together in a naughty way. 😉

  14. Marina says:

    What should I do? Vote for my sex (support strong female character)????? Or vote for sex itself (because Bones is SEX)?????

  15. wont says:

    I can’t believe these two are against each other either. I love them both, I feel as if I’ve traveled their journeys with them. I agree Cat has evolved into an awesome woman. Bones has helped her with that, unlike that sorry excuse for a mother she’s saddled with. But, even with her newly amplified abilities and powers, I think Bones would be the better of the two to fight some of the other opponents. His age and greater variety of life experience makes him, IMO, the better candidate for the ultimate Alpha. I’m voting for Bones.

  16. Dee says:

    What?!?! Bones vs Cat? That’s too hard!! I love both of them… Okay fine, fine. In terms of an ALPHA, I’d have to say Bones. I love Cat but I’m gonna have to go with the teacher rather than the student on this. Bones has much more experience… Ahh man, I really wanted BOTH of them to get to the next round!

  17. Sara says:

    Tough choice. While Cat is a fabulous alpha-female, Bones does have a couple hundred years of alpha hotness over her. She’s gaining ground fast, but I’m going to have to go with Bones for this one.

  18. Julie says:

    Okay, this is probably going to really ruin my credibility, but even though I wrote about Cat…I may actually lean a little towards Bones. Then again, maybe not. Cat is pretty kick ass. lol

  19. wendy says:

    I’ve got to go with Bones!!! Cat is awesome and I really love them together, but Bones is the MAN!!

  20. Donna says:

    Up until the last book, Bones was the ultimate Alpha, but in This Side of the Grave he gave all that up in my opinion. He, Vlad, Spade, and Mencheres just sat back like good boys while Cat, a hot headed 20 something, told all of them what they were going to do and where they were going to be.

    Bones’ alpha status is gone.

  21. Beatriz Lins says:

    WOW, this round is tough!!

  22. Rachel Elizabeth says:

    I gotta go with Bones on this one. Cat is tough and badass, and heck, she’s the Red Reaper, but Bones has been around longer and is a better fighter. He’s the one who trained her, after all. They’re both forces to be reckoned with, but I’m voting Bones!

  23. Ok well this one was tough at first but since Cat is such a unique Vampire and can absorbe abilities from others for a while, plus she drinks vampire blood, I must go with Cat. I love Bones, I think he’s sexy but really…Cat all the way. *Go Team Women!!!*

  24. RJones says:


    She left him for his own good in book 1, which is CLASSIC idiot alpha behavior.

  25. artichoke8 says:

    This is sooo not fair!

  26. Viki S. says:

    You know it’s Bones!

  27. Keira says:

    Ahhh, poor Cat! She’s losing! And against her husband no less. Kinda feel bad for her and although she’s a great alpha, Bones would definitely out alpha her.

  28. Joani S says:

    god this was a tuff one!! I had to go with Bones, tho He taught her all she knows, AND he still has tricks up his sleeve he never told her about!! 🙂

  29. DarkBloodyVamp says:

    This is hard but I have to say Bones!!! He is the ultimate alpha!

  30. Ren Puspita says:

    This one is the most unfair battle, LOL!
    But I vote Bones, and while Cat is pissed of because she lose, Bones can “calm” her
    Everybody wins in the end 😉

  31. keziah says:

    I love cat and all but that english accent just gets me soooooo… you know, or maybe the fact that he’s hot and Alpha to boot

  32. Kim says:

    I had to go with Bones because even in the last book he got the best of Cat when he was teaching her to fly and she was a less than willing pupil. A good teacher always keeps a few tricks up his/her sleeve.
