I’m very excited to have author Karen Michelle Nutt here with us today! Welcome, Karen!
Can villains also be heroes? When creating the My Fallen Angels series, the bad boy kept telling me he didn’t want the role of villain. What could I do, I had to find a way to make him a hero.
Can Villains Also Be Heroes?
By Karen Michelle Nutt
What if the guy wasn’t decent or gallant or all that good, could he be the hero? Could I make a villain likable? Could I turn the villain into a hero?
I liked my villain Lucca in Eli: Warriors for the Light, but could I make others like him as well? Now that he’s been punished for his bad deeds. It’s time for him to tell his side of the story.
To do so, you must understand why he’s acted as he did. No one sets out to be evil. My villain was evil because of the path he chose. The guidelines he lived by were wrong. His weakness was his short-sightedness and being completely inflexible to change.
Lucca was simply a good guy gone wrong. His position was right and he has a list of reasons to prove it. Tradition and culture were the right things to do and anything else was wrong. The problem was the rules he followed were outdated. His goal was simply at odds with the Hero’s goals. This was how Eli and Lucca become rivals. Black became white and the shades of gray faded away.
In Lucca: The Warriors for the Light, it’s Lucca’s chance to tell his story. I’ll leave it up to you to decide if he’s hero material or not.
For a chance to win an e-book copy of Lucca’s tale, let me know what you think of a villain becoming a hero. Do you believe it’s possible?
Lucca: Warriors for the Light (Fallen Angels series, Book 2)
Lucca Marlowe has a dark past that threatens to destroy him. He’s banished for crimes against one of his fellow brethren. The elders bind his glamour and wings, casting him to the human realm. He’ll either learn to respect and embrace his human side or live out eternity trying.
Lucca does not live a mundane life. Angels and demons demand he do their bidding. His estrange father resurfaces after centuries of being absent and he’s brought a friend from Hell.
To make his life more complicated, he fears he found his soul mate in a human female. Only Juliet Romeo has a secret that will bring the wrath of Heaven down upon both their heads.
It’s a race against time to find out who will end up with his soul.
