Who's your favourite character in the Stonewylde Series?

Postby kit » Sun Apr 29, 2007 3:56 pm

Lots of readers have told me who they like best in the series - so let's share this! I want to know which character you enjoy most, and why. I think you'd be surprised to know that mine is Magus. I love his perfection and his flaws - he's such a contrast of good and evil, and so very arrogant. I also love Professor Siskin! Such a dapper little chap. Over to you ...

Fave character

I have only just started to read Magus of Stonewyld, but have to say that I think Yul is a fantastic character. I may change my mind later in the book, but I think he is great.

Mother Heggy Does It For Me

Postby mrb » Sun Apr 29, 2007 9:53 pm

I have to say that the old crone, Mother Heggy, is my favourite character. I love the way Kit describes her in her smoke filled dank cottage with all its so well described accoutrements; the rocking chair, the "Book of Shadows", the range with its pots bubbling away ... and of course her familar, the crow. It puts me right there in her presence. She has a kindly yet malevolent feel about her. The way she goes about her "business" puts her on a different plane to the others. She never ventures from her cottage but seems know everything that is going on in Stonewylde with her all seeing eyes ... even though she is nearly blind! Oh yes ... don't forget Mother Heggy. :twisted:

Very difficult but:

I love Miranda, in both novels. I just feel so sorry for her and sympathise with her so much. I never feel like she 'gets' Stonewylde and for her to watch Sylvie get singled out must be hard.

I also have to put in a vote for Rosie, Yul's sister. If I was at Stonewylde, I'd be her.

Mother Heggy is great - any friend of crows is a friend of mine! (and so nice to find a book where crows are not 'evil') Have to say that Magus is a wonderful character - found myself really really disliking him by Moondance but he's very charismatic so always kind of fascinating. I'm also enjoying the interactions between Magus and Clip - I feel there's a lot more to happen there!

My favorite charecter is definately Yule. He is the hero after all lol.
He has strong charecter and shows little fear. He is beautiful and full of love for his girl.
I am very interested to find out what happens next?

I would have to say Sylvie. I don't know why but I can kind of relate to her. Feeling sickened by living in the city, she is small and fragile (as many say I am) and I just love her moongaziness!! :)

The main characters are never usually my favourite - I usually like a character that you hardly even hear about - but I do love Yul. He's brilliant, and I always feel so sorry for him! He's just a wonderful character overall really....

My favourite character is Yul. He has such a strong presence and has incredible resilience to all the evil in his life - 'They'd never, ever break him'. I really like that line; it shows his determination and spirit.

It has to bee Sylvie for me, as I explained in my introduction, but ever-so- slowly I am turning into Mother Heggy although my husband says I can be an old crow at times too :shock: .

Hmmm, hard to decide. I have immense feelings for Sylvie and Yul. I like the charisma of Magus too.

But if I could choose only one, I would have to say Clip: I love his other-worldly manner and his deep power although there I have some concerns but won't say more than that :wink:

Yul for me as well, I can feel his power come off the pages almost.
I feel sorry for Miranda.
Clip I am facinated by and hope his humanity wins over Magus' unhumanity (the horrid images of Sylvie being forced on the rock is very disturbing)

All the characters are so believable, Kit has created a real cross section of humanity with characters from all personality types.

Magus is mesmerising and you cant help falling a little bit under his spell! What is it about the atrraction of 'bad' boys!!! He is so charismatic.

Sylvie is wonderful, with her moon gazy vulnerability, but at the same time her strong will.

Miranda- at times i want to give her a cuddle and atothers give her a slap!!

but favourite has to be Yul I think. the imhumanity he suffers, yet he grows strong as a result. I love his green man connection, that really draws me. And the descriptions of his transformation from boy to man- he is a strong masculine figure, and as such is becoming very attractive, even if he is only 15 :oops: :lol:

I really like Yul. As the books progress there seems to be so much more to Yul - a very deep character with hidden depths.
