Villians...evil yet oh so charismatic!

I started and finished The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor yesterday. It was ridiculously good! So brief synopsis before I get into one of my favorite parts. The Looking Glass Wars is the story of Alyss Heart who is the princess of Wonderland. Her family is attacked and killed on her seventh birthday by her evil aunt Redd, forcing her to flee with her bodyguard Hatter Madigan into the Pool of Tears, transporting her to our world were she tells her story to a Reverend. The Reverend gets her story all wrong pissing Alyss off royally. Any who, one of my favorite parts is when your seeing everything unfold from Redd's point of view. Even though she is evil, she is friggin' hilarious!

So what if she'd been a "bad girl"? So what if she'd experimented with artificial crystal and imagination stimulants? So what if she'd never cared for justice, love, duty to the people, blah blah blah? She was her own person. Why couldn't her parents respected that and left her alone...


Off with their heads! Off with their stinking, boring heads!


She once came upon a Six Card, a lieutenant, yelling at at some idiot Two who was cradling a cute, fuzzy guinea pig. "I tell you think black thoughts and you come up with that!?" the lieutenant had screamed. "Is a guinea pig bad? Do you consider a guinea pig the representation of all that's evil?"
" it's an evil guinea pig?" The lieutenant and Two Card eyed the animal, which sat in the soldier's folded arm, twitching its nose, oblivious.
"That is not an evil guinea pig!" the lieutenant had shouted. Even though she needed every able body she could get, Redd ordered the lieutenant to kill the soldier.

Okay so that was, sad....and long, but evil guinea pig! Come on I had to post that! Any ways, reading is fun, it gives you knowledge and knowledge is power!-Colt
