Today we kick off round four of the Dark Days of Supernatural giveaway! You guys are familiar with the prize, a tote bag brimming with seven new and upcoming paranormal YA novels: the newest tales from Aprilynne Pike, Kim Harrison and Ellen Schreiber's popular series and four new authors who are making their mark on the genre, Veronica Roth, Amy Plum, Josephine Angelini and Tara Hudson.
Last week for round three of our giveaway, you guys told me all about your paranormal evil nemesis and Beguile.thy.Sorrow has won that round for her inventive response:
I'll be having nightmares for weeks to come featuring some of the creepy crawlies you guys created, so for round four we are headed away from the terrifying things that go bump in the night. This week I want to know what three traits do your paranormal YA love interest possess? I know it's a hard choice to make. You are sitting there saying, "That's impossible! There are so many choices, how can she expect me to choose just three?!?" But I've done the tough job of whittling my list down, so I am confident that you guys can do the same!
In no particular order, here are the three traits of the love interest I'd want by my side for a paranormal adventure:
1) Intelligence. Brains are both attractive and important when one is considering a partner — especially when you may need to solve many complicated problems. (My inspiration for this requirement? The outcast hero, Ky, from Ally Condie's Matched. Ky won my undying love when he taught Cassia to write her name. So sweet and so smart, all at once.)
2) I go weak in the knees for a guy who can fight like a champion, but is also in touch with his emotional side. (You guys know I'm still swooning over Four from Veronica Roth's Divergent, so this had to be on my list!)
3) Because it is important for us to be equals, my perfect paranormal partner has to have a supernatural ability, more specifically — he's a vampire. (Think the romantic and old fashioned teenage vampire Logan Drake from Alyxandra Harvey's Drake Chronicles.)
Now it's your turn! To be entered in this week's round of the Dark Days of Supernatural Giveaway, you've leave a comment below sharing the three essential traits of the person who will be your partner on your paranormal adventure. (Or you can email your comment here with the subject line "Dark Days of Supernatural Giveaway Round 4") The winner will be announced on May 30 when we will also tell you how to enter next week's final Dark Days of Supernatural giveaway!
