Great contest - love the trailer!
My favourite type of fantastical creatures is, surprise, surprise - vampires! Why? They're mysterious, dangerous, handsome and strong.

OMG! I have to enter!

Personally I think it would be awesome to change into wolf whenever you wanted too! Plus werewolves own vampires!

Also, I really like Mermaids, but you know that. Having a tail would be sooooo cool! Plus, I love the sea.

Demons, because there cool.

I may have gone overboard a bit there (sorry for the pun), but I really want to win. Have posted about it.

Rebecca said...

Great contest.

My favourite creature would be dragons because it's so amazing that they can fly when they couldn't physically be able to fly.


Kirthi said...

Wow, Fallen sounds really scary, but I mussttt read it. The trailer was really good

My favorite creature is a FAIRY because they're cute, they can fly, and they're mischievous and funny (fairies exist!)

oh, and i'm a follower!


This is a great giveaway! I really want to read this book :)

-My favorite would have to vampires because their so smooth and sexy. They have this quiet confidence about them that I love, well until they bite and kill you hehe.
-I'm also a follower!


Nickles said...

Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite fantastical character are currently ghosts and this is probably due to the fact I'm writing a story about one. Ghosts conjure up such mystery and suspense in stories! I'm also a follower.


Kelsey said...

Awesome contest. I'm obsessed with unicorns since reading Rampant!

I've always been fascinated with angels and demons, and (until recently) I've felt that they've been somewhat ignored in YA fiction. The mythology and mystery behind them is so intriguing!

Werewolves definitely my favorite, because they have: Super senses, can smell a good burger from a mile away, transforming is just freaking cool, plus the amazing sex life!

I like werewolves because they are powerful, dangerous, and can shapeshift.

Michelle said...

Ohh fantastic! I really want to read this one.

For supernatural creatures I like best, I'm gonna have to go with Faeries becuase I like how tricky they are. How you have to think through every little thing you say and how fond they are of riddles and such. very cool

Sara said...

I think my absolute favorite fantastical creature would have to be vampires, but I'm also a fan of shapeshifters... I'm not a huge werewolf fan, but I like characters that can shift into birds or big cats. I like vampires because of the fact that they can be cast to have been waiting for lifetimes for the perfect person to come along - it makes for great romance (like L.J Smith's Night World books!). With shapeshifters, I just find that interesting... :)

Anya said...

Mhm my favorite are Vampires. But since I read Hush Hush I have to say they both top the list haha. Theyre both dark, mysterious and sexy and theyre strong enough to protect you. It never gets boring with a Vampire or a fallen angel hehe

I follow your blog

Great contest and I like the trailer.

Hmm I can't decide my favourite - I think at the moment it's (fallen) angels because I loved Patch from Hush Hush - but there is something about Vampires that I just love reading about! But they have to be good vampires:)
Anyway... please enter me:)

Wonderful book trailer makes me want to know more. Hmm, favorite character would be Lestat from the Vampire chronicles because he's the vampire bad boy that doesn't care about anyone but himself, but yet has a soft spot sometimes.

I would love to read Fallen!
My favourite fantastical character would have to be vampires, after becoming completely addicted to The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris and falling head over heels in love with Eric Northam. Previously I've never
had a "thing" for a vampire, but I've always liked stories about them, I think because the presence of vampires seems to heighten the lust, violence, drama and brooding in a novel and make for great entertainment. So combine that with the sexy wit and charm of Eric Northam and you've got why vampires are my favourite!
