♛ My Favorite Villains so far ! The Darkling

I wanted my post to be a bit talkative , like a discussion.. and what better thing can i talk about than villains?

From the title of my blog it’s obvious that i love villains ( duuh ) , so i thought it’s a good idea to introduce you to my favorite ones of all time , and also tell you how i fell in love with each one .

Most of the villains included in this are from books , but i might mention a couple from Tv series or Movies .

So today’s villain is……………


♛ The Darkling ♛:



 ( I imagine him as sean O’pry , that explains why i used this picture )

Image result for the darkling

He’s without a doubt the best character i ever read about , my obsession with him defies all forms of logic .

This is a character from The Grisha Trilogy by the wonderful Leigh bardugo ( I know i talked about him a lot already but we will start with him then see other villains ) 



♛ The Darkling , also known as Aleksander Morozova or The Black Heretic 

  is an extremely manipulative person. He is power hungry and ambitious ,He was born many years ago and he is currently around 120 years old if his claims are true, His mother was the one who raised him, giving him his pride.

He served many kings over the years and faked his death many times and planned to rule over his country .

I love everything there is about him , from the way he looks to his manipulative ways, He would hurt and kill anyone if it meant serving his goals , including his own mother.


♛ Moi Soverennyi (sɔ.vɛ.ˈɾɛ.ɲɨ/ soh-veh-REN-yee): is the title used when addressing the Darkling

♛ The Darkling statue symbol:


♛ My favorite quote by him :
( it was so hard to choose! everything he says is beautiful) 


“The Darkling slumped back in his chair. “Fine,” he said with a weary shrug. “Make me your villain.”

― Shadow and Bone

okay , one more 

“Did you tell him Alina? Does the boy know how willing you were to give yourself to me? Did you tell him what I showed you in the dark?”

– Shadow and bone




Discussion :

I will be posting more of my other villains in the next days , but I had to start with The Darkling since he’s my favorite , hopefully you enjoyed this post as much as i enjoyed writing it !

  3. I felt like Shadow and Bone was kind of average however, I really liked the Darkling. Is it bad that I was kind of rooting for the bad guy? Haha. Such an interesting character!
