It is Trope Tuesday Link-Up! And this week it is one of my favorites, redeemed villains. As a reminder each week there will be a trope for you to use as inspiration, find the trope list here. All post types are welcome: lists, book reviews, anything really, feel free to make it your own. Please link back to All the Books and Chocolate in your own post so that others know where to find more information. You can find the link-up link at the bottom of the page.
The Redeemed Villain is just that, a villain who is redeemed. Now that doesn’t mean he doesn’t keep some of his villain like qualities, but he helps the hero and maybe ends up being one of the good guys.
A booklist is obviously going to have potential spoilers. So instead of naming books, I will be listing some series with this trope. I understand that this is still a spoiler, so just beware before you scroll down.
A Court of Thorns and Roses
This is a great story and it has some of my favorite characters in fiction. A Court of Thorns and Roses also has one of my all-time favorite redeemed villains.
The Four Horseman
I admit I have only read the first book in the Horseman series, but you can’t get much more villainous than the four horseman of the Apocalypse.
Now I have to admit this is not my favorite series, but if you love the redeemed villain trope than you should at least give it a read.
