V'Lane Feels Left Out - KMM Talks About This Sexy Fae Too.

I got to thinking... V'lane was pretty hot himself and with the rivalry between him an Barrons, I can't help but thinking all this attention I've given Barrons yesterday might be annoying our gorgeous Seelie *cough* Prince. As tempting as it is to piss him off further - my hope is that he feels he needs to come teach me an important lesson in person *thought to self  "might be a good idea to spend the next few days naked to save time"* I also saw that KMM had a few words about Mr Sex on a Stick himself...  Ok I'm going to hide this next part with the warning it's a HUGE spoiler. You might want to wait until after you've read Shadowfever... in fact I'd strongly encourage it.




Question: I have a question about Cruce/V'lane. I would really like to know how much of his actions were motivated by feelings for Mac. Obviously he did some bad and possibly unforgivable things, but did he truly care about her or was she a means to an end?

In KMMs words:

"V’lane had a lousy publicist. He’s the center-stage male character I gave a label: Seelie, shining death by-sex Fae, erotic, brilliant, ballsy and no more sociopathic than Barrons. With V’lane, I can’t help but play the “what if” game: What if the night Mac rushed through the dark zone seeking sanctuary, Mac had found V’lane instead of Barrons Books & Baubles? What if he’d taken her off to Faery and told her the truth, the full truth that very night? Would she have been swayed by his desire to save his trapped brothers? How different is he really from Barrons and his nine? V’lane may have rebelled against the Unseelie king’s wishes but he was only trying to set the rest of the Unseelie free. He was beautiful, powerful, he could have left the icy prison and abandoned them, pursued his own pleasure. But he wanted all the Unseelie to have a chance in the sunshine and beauty of the world. He was a freedom fighter, a renegade, a determined, cunning, patient, valiant crusader. Doesn’t the world need War? Isn’t he the only reason tyrannies topple, empires fall and humans change? War is the catalyst, the means by which wrongs are righted, scales are balanced, and the world transformed. Isn’t V’lane the real hero?"

Have to say I never saw him that way before. Don't you just love the extra insight? Nothing beats seeing how the author sees her characters and the feelings she's developed for them. Here's a questions though? Once you knew that V'lane was Cruce... did it make him seem just that much HOTTER?? Hahaha everyone loves the bad boy. Happy reading!

I never actually thought about it, but what if Mac HAD run into him that day. I have no doubt she would've helped him as KMM said she might. But I'm much happier with how the story worked out. V'lane was great but love me some Barrons.

Wow - I really enjoyed that insight into V'lane's character. I could fall for him... deep and hard. Sounds like an alternate reality to me *hint hint*

I am actually really into V'Lane too. In fact, at least 30 percent of the time, I wanted he and Mac to hook up because Barrons was so frustrating. I would love to have a Cruce redemption novel, maybe starring Kat as in my opinion, KMM set that one up a bit in SF; however, the fourth rapist thing really turns my stomach and has me hesitant to root for V'Lane/Cruce. I know I would definitely read it, but to use the word rape in a series and then downplay its signifigance is really offensive to me. Yeah, I know the fey perpective on the situaiton was different, but as the novel was told in first person, from Mac's POV, I am just really uncertain abotu it all...

I so understand Krista. I loved the whole "surprise I'm really Cruce" twist (I never saw it coming) but his blase attitude about his being part of her rape was something hard to swallow. I think a redemption novel would be fun but I kinda like that he's bad. Isn't it funny how it switched. For me, Barrons always had this "bad" vibe but towards the end he also had a real "human" feel to him. V'lane on the other hand was this ray of sunshine and goodness (compared) but flipped in the end. Really proved my point that throughout the entire series, nothing was as it seemed and you couldn't tell who to trust.
