Damselfly is a unique story where this girl named Lina (full name Thumbelina) who was created in order to solve the crisis of food shortage in the world. This girl who is the size of your thumb is supposed to be the first of her kind and is the first step in creating more people like her. Now let me talk about her creator or "mother" Dr. Christiansen. Dr. Chistiansen is cold hearted. She's very strict with Lina and Lina hates her for it. She keeps Lina trapped in a cage for most of the story when she starts to rebel, she forces her to choose between a few Toms in order for her to get married and have babies, and she experiments on people. What a lovely doctor right? She has the trait that all villains seem to have - they don't let anything or anyone get in the way of what they want. It's all about them. She could care less about what Lina wants or what is morally and ethically right in the world because she is right and if you say something against her you are in for some real trouble.
Now get ready for the worst villain that is making me shudder and get teary eyed as I write this down. Gavin is the most despicable character I've probably ever encountered. I've had only one other villain make me afraid and he was in a book called Kindred. I'm not necessarily afraid of this character; more like disgusted. He portrays all those stalkers and killers who prey on their victims in character form. I mean this book gets really messed up. I would only recommend you read it if you know what you are up against. It's this very realistic portrayal of how Gavin manipulates Val that makes him the evilest villain in 2014 for me. He wants to be like a lion and Val is his lioness and he wants to force her to do things like he is an animal. I don't want to say more because it's extremely disturbing to think about. This is a fantastic horror book but way too realistic and scary for me. I will never forget Gavin and that's terrifying to me.
Who was your worst/favorite villain in 2014?
