Crushing On... Hunter Redfern from the Night World Series

Once a month I'm going to have a post dedicated to the fictional character I'm crushing on. Boy, girl, Grimalkin from The Iron Fey series, it doesn't matter. I'll tell you why I'm crushing on them and maybe include some quotes to show why I fell hard and fast for them. And anybody can feel free to join in at any time, so don't hesitate to share who you're crushing on!

This month is going to be a little different. This month I'm sharing a character I absolutely hate! We all have them, characters we wish would fall into a fiery pit and never return, so I figure why not share our utter and complete hatred with everyone!

This month's crush is:

Hunter Redfern
from the Night World Series by L.J. Smith

I deeply detest Hunter Redfern. Loathe isn't a strong enough word. But for whatever reason I'm feeling the need to rant, so today's Crush On has been transformed into Hate On! (Yeah, that's allowed.) I hate him right down to his obnoxious yellow eyes. (Hmm. Just realized I hate another character with yellow eyes *cough* Sam from Shiver *cough*)

It takes a lot to make me hate a character. I'm real big on redemption. My favorite characters are the ones who have to redeem themselves after some terrible past transgression they'd committed. But Hunter doesn't deserve redemption. The man is the epitome of evil in every sense. I mean, just read the beginning of The Chosen for crying out loud! (HE ATE TIMMY!!!!! Who does that?!)

It's horrifying, really truly horrifying, the things Hunter does throughout the Night World Series. He's a terrible being (I don't ever consider him human) and he absolutely deserves what he gets in Black Dawn. I actually cheered when Delos... did what he did. Like jumped up and went, "Oh yeah! Go Delos, it's your birthday, it's your birthday!" (Well, okay, just inside my head, but yeah. When was the last time you heard of someone even thinking that phrase? But I did, because that's how excited I was!)

To recap, Hunter = suck, Delos = rule, and I'm still shouting "It's your birthday, it's your birthday," just thinking about the conclusion of Black Dawn. So... maybe this month really was a Crush On in a roundabout sort of way. Delos Redfern definitely deserves some crushage, that's for sure.

Are you familiar with the Redfern family? Because if not you should get all of the Night World Omnibuses and cozy up to the Redferns. They're gonna save the world one day, you know. *nods solemnly* (Well, someday. When L.J. finally finishes Strange Fate. Grrrr!!!)

In the meantime, who are you crushing on? (...Or hating on?)
