Character Death Match: Zazere vs The Hunter Of Voramis


Duel to the Death



I, Kyra Dune, challenge you, Andy Peloquin, to a duel to the death! But it is not we who will fight, but our characters…

In the black corner, weighing in at 180 pounds, standing a cool 6 feet tall, the Hunter of Voramis!

Tale of the Tape:

  • Superhuman reflexes, strength, speed--think Captain America, but stronger
  • Thousands of years of weapons training
  • Body has accelerated healing factor--can survive a sword to the heart (can be killed by drowning, iron weapons, beheading, and suffocation)
  • Cannot be killed by anything but iron
  • Accursed dagger that heals him when he kills
  • No magical abilities whatsoever
  • No hesitation to kill if he perceives opponent as a threat/obstacle to his desires--classic anti-hero

In the grey corner, weighing in at 145 pounds, standing 5' 7" tall, the Slyph Mage, Zazere!

Tale of the Tape:

·         Telepathic

·         Control Over The Air

·         Handy With Magical Powders

·         Can Create Weapons Out Of Thin Air

·         Master Swordsman

·         Swift & Agile

·         Son Of A Dragon

·         Never Loses His Cool

Two enter the ring, only one can leave alive!

How would Zazere kill the Hunter? Zazere would use flash powder to temporarily blind The Hunter, then a blast of wind to the chest to knock him off his feet. If he read the Hunter's mind, he could ascertain the Hunter's weakness: iron.

To kill Zazere: The Hunter would try to overwhelm him with his inhuman speed, strength, and skill. All he has to do is pierce his skin with Soulhunger, and the dagger will consume his soul. Not even someone with considerable magical abilities can survive Soulhunger's bite--it was created to kill demons. 

Who would win?

The Hunter is more than able to face any swordsman, and his skill with his blades would give him a fighting chance. Being telepathic, Zazere knows every move his opponent will make before they make it. Thus, he is exceedingly difficult to kill. However, knowing what your opponent is being able to do and being fast enough to counter it are two different matters.

The match would be a close one. If the Hunter's superior speed, strength, and skill could get through Zazere's guard, Soulhunger would end the battle. If Zazere could bring his planning, strategy, and abilities to the battle, he could outmatch the Hunter and use an iron sword to defeat him.

Winner: Draw. Luck could tip the scales in either direction.

Blog Tour: Crushed by Deborah Coonts


Crushed, a Novel of Love and Wine
The Heart of Napa Series #1
By- Deborah Coonts
Genre- Contemporary Romance/Women’s Fiction
Publication Date-March 8, 2016


In Napa Valley, he who has the best grapes wins.
And in the pursuit of perfection, dreams and hearts can be crushed.
Sophia Stone is a widow on the brink of an empty nest, stuck in an unsatisfying job managing the vineyard for a mediocre Napa vintner.  Faced with an uncertain future she wonders how do you choose between making a living and making a life?  Between protecting your heart and sharing it?  Five years ago, after her husband was killed in an accident, Sophia put her heart and dreams on ice to care for those around her.  Now her home, her dreams, and her family’s legacy grapes are threatened by the greed of the new money moving into the Valley.   Sophia has a choice—give up and let them take what is hers, or risk everything fighting a battle everyone says she can’t win.

Nico Treviani has one goal in life: make brilliant wine.  A woman would be an unwanted distraction.  So, while recognized as one of Napa’s premier vintners, Nico finds himself alone… until his brother’s death drops not one, but two women into his life—his thirteen-year-old twin nieces.  In an instant, Nico gains a family and loses his best friend and partner in the winemaking business.  Struggling to care for his nieces, Nico accepts a job as head winemaker for Avery Specter, one of the new-money crowd.  And he learns the hard way that new money doesn’t stick to the old rules.

    


If Crushed, a Novel of Love and Wine was made into a movie and you could cast anyone you wanted, who would you choose?

Gosh, haven’t thought about it.  Ashley Judd maybe as Sophia.  Nico--someone tall and dark and smoldering, yet human when he smiles.  Hugh Jackman? 

Nico and Sophia are not youngsters.  They are adults dealing with grown children, or almost-grown (Sophia), nieces who he becomes unexpectedly responsible for (Nico).  They both have aging parents and have lost one parent.
