[Blog Tour] Paradise 21 by Aubrie Dionne

The baddies in Paradise 21 ~Guest Post~

Every story has its villains, and Paradise 21 has two.
They were to most fun to write! At times, I felt as though they took over the story because each one had the greatest character arc. Both of them are tragically flawed, and through their mistakes they learn and grow. But do they get what they want in the end? For that answer, you’ll have to read Paradise 21.

Baddie #1
Astor Barliss: The Lieutenant and Aries’ fiancé aboard The New Dawn.
His flaw: trying to control everything.
What he loses to realize he has to change: Aries, the woman he’d worked so hard to get as his lifemate.
Baddie #2
Tiff: the space pirate that joined Striker’s crew, then left him to die on Sahara 354.
Her flaw: selfishness, not knowing what or who she really wants.
What she has to lose to realize she has to change: Striker’s love.
My question to you is: name a baddie in movies or literature and their tragic flaw. Do they overcome it, or does the flaw get the better of them?

About Paradise 21 goodreads, Paradise 21 at Entangled Publishing

Aries has lived her entire life aboard mankind’s last hope, the New Dawn, a spaceship traveling toward a planet where humanity can begin anew—a planet that won’t be reached in Aries’ lifetime. As one of the last genetically desirable women in the universe, she must marry her designated genetic match and produce the next generation for this centuries-long voyage.But Aries has other plans.

When her desperate escape from the New Dawn strands her on a desert planet, Aries discovers the rumors about pirates—humans who escaped Earth before its demise—are true. Handsome, genetically imperfect Striker possesses the freedom Aries envies, and the two connect on a level she never thought possible. But pursued by her match from above and hunted by the planet’s native inhabitants, Aries quickly learns her freedom will come at a hefty price.

The life of the man she loves.

  1. I am drawing a complete blank on baddies! I swear, I have been sitting here thinking of one who had to lose something to win it, and I can't think of a single one. I've always frozen on tests! I thought about Rhett Butler, but Scarlett was really the baddie who had to lose Rhett before she appreciated him. I agree with Lisa about Victor Newman, though (good one, Lisa!!). So, since I couldn't come up with a single one, I tweeted about the contest instead so I would be sure to be entered!! LOLhttp://twitter.com/#!/jwitt33/status/102390182417936385Thanks for a great guest post and giveaway, Aubrie :)jwitt33 at live dot com
