Cinder Paperback Blog Tour: Queen Levana Character Spotlight + GIVEAWAY!


QUEEN LEVANA


Her beauty is unspeakable. Her cruelty is legendary. Queen Levana rules Luna, the moon kingdom, through fear and mind control, and swiftly removes anyone who poses an opposition to her rule. Years ago she murdered her toddler niece, Princess Selene, in a horrific fire, and forced her stepdaughter, Princess Winter, to scar her own face when rumors began to spread that Winter was becoming the most beautiful girl in the kingdom.

Now, Levana has set her sights on Earth, beginning with the Eastern Commonwealth. But the young Emperor Kai has proven too stubborn for his own good, refusing her demands of a peaceable marriage alliance at every turn. Then there’s that horrendous cyborg, Linh Cinder, who—for reasons unknown—can see through the beauty that so many others have fallen prey to. On top of everything, rumors are circulating that the long-dead Princess Selene may have survived the murder and is preparing to reclaim her throne.


Levana may have to resort to desperate measures if she’s to fulfill her destiny and become the Empress of Earth, the most terrifying and beloved ruler those pathetic Earthens have ever known…

The evil queen from Snow White performed by Charlize Theron. She was so good in it!

Kelly said...

From the Iron fey series. Both Queens were evil.

Andrea C said...

I really like Maleficent, from Sleeping Beauty. Something about her is just so... pure evil.

If we're going old school fairy tale, probably the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid. Cutting out the mermaid's tongue and making it like she's walking on glass with every step? Just plain mean.

Maleficent

Sherry Gammon YA Author said...

Cinerella's stepmother! Love what happens to her in the end! Great giveaway. Thanks!

flip said...

My favorite wicked queen is Disney's Snow White queen. She was wonderful evil.

Chrisbails said...

My favorite bad queen is of course the step-mother from Cinderella. I always hated her when I was a little girl because she was so mean to Cinderella. She was even mean to her own daughters.
Have been wanting to read this book for awhile. Thanks for the giveaway.

Dione Sage said...

Honestly, I don't know any books that I have read lately that has a great evil queen in it.

Vivien said...

Eeee!! I'm in the PB TOO :)

Vivien said...

Definitely the evil queen from Snow White!! *forget the name at the moment*

Michelle said...

I'd have to say my favorite wicked queen is the one from Snow White, especially with the way they're portraying her on the new TV show Once Upon A Time.

Myra C said...

Cinerella's stepmother

ohdamnbooks said...

The evil queen in Aurora. She never gives up on killing her.

aLilLacey said...

Mother Gothell from Tangled

Emily @ Falling For YA said...

Maleficent for sure! She was evil and turned in to a Dragon, how can you possibly beat that?!

erin said...

thanks for the awesome post and giveaway! I'm gonna have to go with the Sea Witch from the Little Mermaid :)

Halee said...

Probably the queen for Snow White.

Holly Letson said...

The Queen of Sorrow from Snow White. I especially love her in the Grimm Diaries Prequels, where she is trying to convince us that Snow is bad and not her.

Julie said...

Cinderella's step mother. Even as a child I always thought she was scary!

Maidenveil said...

Definitely Maleficent. Badass evil queen.

Joie said...

Definitely Cinderella's stepmother!

Lona said...

The Queen from Narnia, she was pretty mean. Thx for the giveaway.

Amanda Ray said...

Malificent from Sleeping Beauty

Jaclyn Canada said...

Regina from Once Upon a Time (The Snow White evil queen) and Maleficent. Thank you so much for the giveaway! New Follower :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven

Celine said...

Probably, Queen Mab. There's nothing quiet like a evil winter fairy queen ;)

Aisazia said...

Oh that's tough, probably have to agree with the person who said Regina from Once Upon a Time. :D

Leeanna said...

I'm going to cheat, because my favorite wicked queen is from a fantasy series. Melisande Shahrizai, from Kushiel's Dart.

Briana N. said...

Maleficent wins by a long shot!!

Susan Light said...

The wicked queen from the Disney movie Enchanted. Susan Sarandan did a great job!

Shelver506 said...

Hmmm... I'm not sure I have one, actually. I tend to like bad guys better than bad gals. I'm not sure why.

Lisa Richards/alterlisa said...

The wicked queen in the TV show
Once Upon a Time

Giaochau Nguyen said...

My favorite wicked queen would be the queen from Snow White and the Huntsman.

Beth W said...

The Ice Queen is my all-time favorite. :)

Laura Hartness said...

Maleficent for sure!

Laura

Angela Chen said...

Cinderella's stepmother!

Caitlyn Echo said...

Am I allowed to go with Queen Levana? :D

Jen B. said...

I love Maleficent (I sure hope I spelled that right)!

kwyoke said...

Maleficent, from Sleeping Beauty

sarah corbin said...

The queen from snow white..i liked the one that was played by charlize theron( i think i spelled her name right- not sure)

Laurent Gomez said...

The witch of Snow White

Grace Lo said...

The queen from Snow White and the Huntsman. To be honest, I thought Charlize Theron did the best performance out of the entire cast.

books4me said...

Wicked Witch of the West from Wizard of Oz!

@WriterSherry said...

Thanks for the giveaway!

If you have a minute, check out my books!

Allison said...

The Ice Queen in Narnia.

Kathryn Romeo said...

Malficent

Max Rowe said...

Queen Mab

Angel Rose said...

Titania from IRON KING

Claire said...

My favorite evil queen is from this 80s BBC version of Sleeping Beauty. She's called the Faerie of Red so she isn't really a queen, but it's the same role as Maleficent so it works.

Angie said...

Does Ursala count?

Christyna_BM said...

Queen Beryl from Sailor Moon

Magaly Guerrero said...

I have been staring at that lovely shoe for quite some time. Maybe...

Ellezor Payne said...

The evil queen from Mirror Mirror! :) She's funny.

juliababyjen said...

Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty--I can't wait for the movie!
