My very first discussion post! This is kind of a big deal for me. We all know what discussion posts are, so I'm just going to jump in, yes?
I know exactly what y'all are thinking right now. "She wants to have a discussion about Dante Walker? Pfft." And my answer to that is: YES. Goodness, yes. For a few reasons:
1. I was lucky enough to be picked as a family member in the VMafia (henceforth, there's been somewhat a Dante explosion in everything that is ME--Twitter, blog, facebook, etc.) and I am seriously pumped about this. Seriously, seriously pumped. So I've been in the mood to gush about Dante because of this.
2. Um, this book looks just plain amazing.
3. DANTE FREAKING WALKER LOOKS JUST PLAIN AMAZING.
and 4. Victoria Freaking Scott is just plain amazing.
So we're going to talk about them. Or, I am, and then I kind of hope you say something in response. I've never done a discussion on the blog before, so...work with me here, peeps.
First of all, do you know who Dante Walker is? If your answer was no, we're fixing that huge issue right now:
The Collector by Victoria Scott
He makes good girls...bad.
Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence has made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple, weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.
Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:
Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within 10 days.
Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky, Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect—he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector, and uncover emotions deeply buried.
If you're having a total deja vu moment, that would be because this book has recently been featured in my WoW. Just so you know.
So. Dante Walker. He has a website you can see by clicking HERE. It's absolutely entertaining. Dante's a cool guy. And you might want to check out Victoria Scott's website, too, because she's a cool chick. Click HERE for her website.
All right. Now that all the formalities are out of the way, let's talk Dante. He's kind of epic, right? This book is my most anticipated of 2013 right now, and I legit CANNOT wait for this book to come out. I just may explode before it releases. Which would be sad, because then I'd never get to meet Dante.
Other than being TOTALLY HOT, Dante is also awesome. And by "awesome," I mean he is the best at what he does. Which tends to add to his ego. Which'll make him loads of fun to read about. Hot, confident, and amazing. That's Dante for ya.
Fun fact: his favorite color? Red. Why is this a fun fact? BECAUSE RED'S MY FAVORITE COLOR, TOO. Yeah. He and I already have something in common. That's so cool. ;)
Daemon Black. We all know who he is, right? If you don't...oh, dear. I have no response. He's only my MOST FAVORITE BOOK CHARACTER EVER. Yeah. It's kind of serious. Dante kind of reminds me of him. I must say, I never imagined Daemon having competition for my #1 boy, but...I don't know. Dante may be competition. I mean, look how much I love him already? Then again, I DID love Daemon before I technically met him, too. So you never know. My point here is: Daamon is still my #1, but Dante is a VERY close second. Just so you know. Which, in case you read my review of The Golden Lily on Monday, does push Adrian back to #3. But that's okay, because I love them all. A lot.
So, this post is pretty much just a bunch of gushing about how awesome/cool/amazing/EPIC Dante Walker is. And how excited I am for The Collector to come out. And that's okay. Because some things deserve to be gushed over.
Now, please feel free to gush all you want in the comments and whatnot. I'm always up for an attractive-book-boy conversation. Those are some of the best conversations ever, right? So let it out, because Dante's totally worth it.
