Departing Divas

Aberration Blog Hop:Finding The Most Aberrant Characters

By definition aberrant means the departing of an accepted standard, or the diverging from the normal type (Google search, 2013). Author, Lisa Regan, in celebration of the release of her second novel, Aberration, is hosting the blog hop, which runs through June 6th and 7th. In Aberration, FBI profiler, Kassidy Bishop is on the hunt for a serial killer who is an aberration - a freak - even among serial killers. In lieu of Regan's new novel, the Aberration Bog Hop is to highlight characters that, like the serial killer her main protagonist is searching for, might be labeled as 'different'.

Top 5 Aberrant Characters - Paper Back Edition

5.) Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer - Victoria - sadistic and vengeful vampire that is hell bent on her own form of justice, to destroy Bella, whom is Edwards love, since he was the one that destroyed her love, James in the first installment, Twilight.
4.) The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis - the Queen, the White Witch - wicked manipulation leads this witch down a one way path to her own destruction.
3.) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling - Professor Umbridge - who didn't hate her! She was the embodiment of pure misery.
2.) Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse Series) by Charlaine Harris - Debbie Pelt - the maniacal devil-wolf met her match when Sookie introduced her to her brother's Benalli. 
1.) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling - Bellatrix Lestrange - need I say more? While she was a constant reminder of the horrors of the Dark Lord, when Mrs. Weasley took her on, goosebumps prickled and I was excited about the wicked Lestrange being extinguished.

As a writer, almost like a 'bonus' character I would like to introduce you to Xylo. Xylo is an aberrant character within my first book, Going off Dreams (K.E.Nowinsky). She was not always different, but because of her choices in life, she has been transformed into a woodland dryad that is cursed with her indiscretions. To read more about the Woodland Dryad General, Xylo - read Going off Dreams.
