Death Dealers vs. Lycans

So I saw Underworld: Evolution…twice. And I have to say, I loved the movie. (Umm…yeah, that would be where the whole seeing it twice part came in!)

I liked the first Underworld movie. Liked, not loved. My problem with that flick was Michael’s character. He was just too…weak for me. I know, I know..He was a human who became a werewolf/vampire super beast. He didn’t know what was happening or how to deal with things. Yeah, I get that. But he still seemed weak to me. And I just don’t like weak heroes. So, I liked that film, but didn’t love it.

When I started seeing previews for Underworld: Evolution, I was intrigued, but not desperate to see the movie. Then I actually saw it. Wow–what a change! Michael became all alpha male. He was strong. He saved his vamp girlfriend (several times!). He didn’t hide in a corner, waiting for Selene to do all the work. He proved his right to be called super beastie.

Of course, there was more to the movie than Michael’s just being a badass. It delved into the Lycan/Vampire feud, clearing up some loose ends from the first movie, and quite possibly setting up a third installment.

Yes, I enjoyed the show. I plan to buy the DVD once it hits the stores. What can I say? Heroes really do make or break movies (and books) for me. Don’t give me a weak hero, whatever you do. Give me someone strong. Someone who isn’t afraid to fight.

What do you think? Anyone have any other favorite heroes you want to mention?

Okay…this is it. My official first post on my blog. Since it’s the first post, I’ll make it an introduction. So, here goes. Hi, I’m Cynthia Eden, and I’m a paranormal romance writer. I’ve been a huge fan of the paranormal all my life. Give me scary movies any day of the week, and you have one seriously happy camper. I adore vampires, can’t get enough of werewolves, and am fascinated by witches. So, once I turned my hand to writing, it seemed only natural for me to write about my monsters.

Right now, I have a vampire book available and a werewolf novella on store shelves. Other books are in the works–more vamp tales, more wolf stories.

Some of my favorite authors are: Christine Feehan, Susan Sizemore, and Sherrilyn Kenyon. Do you have any favorite authors? And why are they your favs?
