Favorite Character Friday: A little demon told me


Favorite Character Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Adria's Romance Reviews that gives readers a chance to celebrate their favorite characters!

Why a weekly meme? Because really, with millions of books out there and more coming out every week, characters are like potato chips, you can't have just one.

How it works: Every week you pick one of your favorite characters and tell every one who it is, what book they're from and WHY they're one of your favorite characters. Be sure to include the blurb and book cover as well! Share the love and maybe someone will read that same book and see why that character is one of your favorites! Unlike the Book Boyfriend meme (which was a great meme), your Favorite Character Fridays choice can be male or female!

Favorite Character: THE Simi



Book Title & Author: The Dark Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Why is this character your favorite (Feel free to include a favorite quote or scene)? You can’t read the Dark Hunter series and NOT love Simi. The adorable demon daughter of Acheron Parthenopaeus, Simi is spoiled rotten and loved by all except for Ash’s enemies. As old as she is, Simi has maintained her childlike innocence and way of speaking. She’s blunt but doesn’t necessarily grasp how evil the world can be. She views the world much like a toddler would. She’s loyal to her akri Ash, his wife Tori and their children. Not to be underestimated, Simi can fry a human, demon or shifter in the blink of an eye if she feels her large, extended family is threatened.

Simi can be found as a dragon tattoo on Ash’s body or as a lovely human woman when she is “let loose” to enjoy the human realm. She needs supervision though, since she’s like a toddler with extreme strength and a lack of verbal filter.

She’s so popular that a doll of her and Acheron were made and sold (Sadly, I could not afford either one) and she appears in the Dark Hunter Manga (Yes the series was turned into a graphic novel and it’s pretty neat).

While Simi may not have her own book, she is such a HUGE part of the series that whenever she doesn’t appear, it just doesn’t feel right. There are so many priceless quotes from this adorable demon that it’s impossible to choose just one but I think I’ll go with a scene from Dance with the Devil which is the book where Simi made her debut.

     The demon placed a hand on Astrid’s shoulder as she eyed him cautiously. “Tell him to leave me alone, Astrid. Else I’ll have to barbecue him and make akri angry at me. I don’t want to make akri angry.”
     Astrid covered the demon’s hand with hers. “Simi? Is that you?”
     “Yes. C’est moi. The little demon with hornays.”
     Zarek lowered his claws. “You two know each other?”
     Astrid frowned as she faced him again. “Don’t you know her?”
     “She’s a demon. Why would I know her?”
     “Because she’s Acheron’s companion.”


Series Blurb:
The Dark-Hunter Credo:

We are Darkness. We are Shadow.

We are the Rulers of the Night.

We, alone, stand between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. We are the Guardians.

The Soulless Keepers.

Our souls were cast out so that we would not forewarn the Daimons we pursue. By the time they see us coming, it’s too late.

The Daimons and Apollites know us. They fear us. We are death to all those who prey upon the humans.

Neither Human, nor Apollite, we exist beyond the realm of the Living, beyond the realm of the Dead.

We are the Dark-Hunters.

And we are eternal.

Yeah, yeah. Enough of the doom and gloom because, baby, that ain’t us. You want to know what a Dark-Hunter is? We are what the intro says. We’re Mad, Bad and Immortal. We’re ancient warriors with attitudes who fight rough, and play hard.

We are the scary things that go bump in the night. And we love every minute of it. So when you think you’re being watched. You just might be. The question is…is it something evil or is it one of us?

In the world of the Dark-Hunters nothing is ever as it seems. Life and death both take on a whole new meaning as this immortal cadre of warriors fight to protect mankind from those creatures and demons who would prey on us. It’s dark. It’s deadly and it’s a whole lot of fun and laughter.
