Fangtastic Friday: The Revenge of Barrons…

… yes, THAT Barrons.  The shove you against the wall and kiss (and …other things…) your socks off Barrons.  The beast who takes what he wants and f*ck anyone who gets in his way Barrons.  The irreverant, cocky, smart, strong, sexy man who can make a woman want to run away and beg for more at the same time Barrons.  Yeah, him.

If you haven’t heard, Badass Barrons competed in the Vampire Book Club’s Alpha Showdown earlier this summer (just what we needed – a Barrons with an even further-inflated ego) and in return for a win, Fever series author Karen Marie Moning promised the fans a little sexy time from Barrons’s point of view.  That was a pretty exciting prospect for fans of the series and the votes poured in, ultimately crowning our broodingly reluctant hero as champion.  Just one hitch in this happily-ever-after… Barrons apparently did not consent to this deal and fought Ms. Moning at every opportunity.  When she finally posted the scene on her site, it was obvious that he’d put her through the ringer and then some, so she wrote a revealing intro to the scene and shared a (until recently) private piece of her creative process: the Barrons APOE, or Attitude Point of Entry.  Apparently she won the battle for the scene but ultimately lost the war; we won’t be seeing any other Barrons POV scenes unless he grants us the very highly unlikely privilege.  A shame, because this scene is really something, and I was surprised to see that it actually occurs in Darkfever, the first book of the series, and yet still manages to fit seamlessly into the storyline.

Already read the scene and still can’t get enough of Barrons?  Dreamworks recently acquired the film rights to the Fever series and after much animated discussion on her Facebook page, Ms. Moning reassured fans that she wouldn’t have sold the rights if she didn’t believe Dreamworks could do it justice.  Will the Fever series movies be able to compete against fan favorites like The Hunger Games and Marvel Superheroes?  We can only hope, because this series has the potential to be EPIC!  Intense, emotional, full of action & violence, as well as sex and drugs… well, the rhino-boy version anyway.  *wink*  Keep your fingers crossed for Darkfever The Movie!
