I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and you’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so YOU and others can blog hop and share the character love. ♡
I was on a paranormal/urban fantasy binge a few years and I’m sure I read a lot of books with Fae love interests but most of those books are a blur and I really don’t remember any of them. Some of the notable Fae LI’s from the books I have loved in the past year are Rhysand, Cardan, Rowan, Kieran etc. I’m pretty they are going to be the popular choices for this meme this week but I really don’t mind tagging along. It finally came down to a choice between two (you know who they are), and I have decided to go with the Fae MC from the series I adore the most and whose characters are my precious. And it also goes along quite well with my post from last week 😉 (*Beware of Spoilers*)
The strongest and most powerful fae male in the world, he has fought alone and by the side of his Cadre in far away lands and always won, but he doesn’t want to. After more than two centuries of the death of his wife and unborn child, he is still mourning and wants to feel nothing.
Forced by his Queen Maeve to train an arrogant young princess, he taunts and abuses and fights with her but can’t trul hate her for fighting back. Bonded by the tremendous loss in their lives, he and Aelin form an unlikely friendship and fight together for the lives of the Demi-Fae.
Finally free from the Fae Queen, he becomes blood-sworn to Aelin, vowing to protect her forever. She is stubborn and a fighter just like him and doesn’t tell him any of her plans, but he is always by her side, fighting their enemies, protecting their friends and saving the world.
He doesn’t want to see the truth, doesn’t want to believe that he is deserving of love again, but can’t deny the soul deep connection he feels for Aelin – so much more than ust friendship and love.
Carranam. Prince of Doranelle.
King-Consort to the Queen of Terrasen.
He is Rowan Whitethorn Galathynius.
“I kept thinking about how you might never know that I missed you with only an ocean between us. But if it was death separating us … I would find you. I don’t care how many rules it would break. Even if I had to get all three keys myself and open a gate, I would find you again. Always.”
“I love you. There is no limit to what I can give to you, no time I need. Even when this world is a forgotten whisper of dust between the stars, I will always love you.”
Do you read a lot of fantasy? Who are your favorite Fae love interests?
