Character Connection: Roar from Through the Ever Night

One of my blogging goals this year is to write a Character Connection every month! I love how this feature forces me to look more closely at a loved character and then try to verbalize exactly why I'm drawn to them. It's also fun to share my character loves with you! You should join with us every month over at The Introverted Reader!

My highlight this month:         

from Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi

(I have no idea who this is in real life
but this is just how I picture Roar
only wearing black of course!)
Well, actually we meet Roar in the first book, Under the Never Sky, and yes, he's cool in that book, but I was focused much more on Perry. In the second book, Roar has a much more prominent role and suddenly his coolness is right there in your face!

Why do I think he's so cool?
  • He a sidekick character and it seems that in most cases, the sidekick is more swoon worthy than even the main love interest. He gives Perry the run for his money on this!
  • He "has a prince's look but a pirate's eyes."
  • He's dark and mysterious and wears black "from head to toe."
  • He laughs... a lot.
  • He hides behind the facade of his swagger, which he has going in spades.
  • He is funny and witty and silly and crazy.
  • He fights with knives.
  • He has enhanced hearing, and can even hear Aria's thoughts if he's touching her.
  • He's extremely suave and smooth with Aria, which makes you wonder what he really feels, but we know he is in love with Perry's sister, Liv. So, there's that.
  • He sort of reminds me of Jacob in the sense that Aria, our heroine, seems to sort of need him to ground and center herself. 
Have you read these books? Do you love Roar too? And why?


  1. That is a nice saucy picture for a character!

  2. Ooooh, yes, that model is very Roar-y. I love him because he's easygoing and funny, but also very loyal and passionate about everything he does.

    1. Susan: You think this guy fits? I keep thinking maybe he's TOO handsome? He needs a little scruffing up, but no, Roar is actually quite polished if I remember right.... so.. yeah. I think he works!

  3. Hmmm, I'm looking forward to getting to know him. Mind if I imagine that hottie too?

    1. Jenny, you are going to love Roar. I have no doubt AT ALL in my mind on this. You'll probably hate Perry, or at least roll your eyes at him or whatever, but I guarantee, you will love Roar. I can't wait for you to meet him!

  4. "A prince's look but a pirate's eyes," huh? I like the sound of that! And I love a man with a sense of humor! Verrrrry nice picture too. Thanks for posting!
