Guest Blogger: All Things Urban Fantasy (Blog Birthday)

Today’s guest is Abigail from All Things Urban Fantasy.  I love everything about Abigail’s blog.  She always has insightful reviews and her features are great.  ATUF is a must read blog.  Thanks Abigail for all of the great advice, and I really appreciate your friendship.

Welcome Abigail!

Happy Blogoversary Angela! Dark Faerie Tales and All Things Urban Fantasy both entered the blogosphere within weeks of each other and since we both focus on paranormal fiction, Dark Faerie Tales has been an amazing encouragement and example to me of what a blog can and should be.  Thank you for keeping me on my toes this last year and in the year to come :)

Since we’re celebrating your first year of blogging, I thought I pick my favorite new urban fantasy hero since you first started Dark Faerie Tales:

Name: Hank (from Kelly Gay’s Charlie Madigan series)

Occupation: Atlanta P.D.’s Integration Task Force Detective

Species: Siren

Location: Originally from the heaven-like world of Elysia, currently living in Atlanta

Abilities: Supernaturally alluring voice, Elysian magic

Notable Physical Characteristics: “Blond, wavy hair the color of sunshine on gold. Six-four. Two hundred pounds of lean muscle, and the same kind of grace, presence, and majesty of a lion. His eyes change color with his mood—dark sapphire when he’s pissed, topaz blue when he’s cracking some asinine joke.” – Kelly Gay

Oh Hank.  Where have you been all my life? Hank is the off-worlder partner of the main character in this series, Charlie Madigan. He is the only male siren that I’ve ever read about and he is divine.  As a siren, Hank can compel, coerce, and comfort with a single word.  To keep the humans from following him around like “a bunch of drooling puppy dogs” he wears a voice-mod (similar to a Celtic torc) that suppresses his abilities, but when he takes it off…yowza! 

Like all my favorite heroes, Hank is totally alpha, but in a very modern way.  He’s strong and capable and he’s used to getting his way, but he also knows when to clench his jaw shut and let Charlie take the lead.  He is fully aware of how sexy he is and enjoys using that to trip Charlie up from time to time.  If you haven’t met Hank yet, run don’t walk to the nearest book store and pick up The Better Part of DarknessThe Darkest Edge of Dawn by Kelly Gay.

GIVEAWAY GUIDELINES:

One lucky commenter will have a chance to win a Kindle 3G + Wi-Fi.

1. Giveaway is open to US and Canada only.

2. Giveaway ends Friday, November 26th at 11:59 PM EST.

3. The winner will be picked with the help of Random.org.

    I was very interested to see who made the cut as your favorite new urban fantasy hero, Abigail, I couldn’t even come up with a good guess! Your response reminded me that I’m behind on Charlie Madigan, time to pick of “The Darkest Edge of Dawn.” Knowing Hank just gets better in the second book is inducement to make sure I do this soon.

    Abigail, thanks for the 411 on Hank. I haven’t read any of Kelly Gay’s books yet, but your de’lish description of Hank has encouraged me add this particular series to my TBR list. Congrats on a year of blogging and many hopes to many more years to come.
