Team Smackdown

So, today there will be two Team Smackdowns going on so Round 2 can begin next week! Don't forget to vote in both smackdowns!

The first Smackdown is:

Team Daniel vs Team Cam  (Fallen Series)

Team Daniel - Fallen Series by Lauren Kate

Name - Daniel Grigori
Falen Angel
Looks - Tall, blonde hair an gray-violet eyes.

"Daniel is a fallen angel - a heavenly being who chose to side with neither God nor Satan at the beginning of time - and Luce’s main romantic interest. He is described as a handsome blond, with gray-violet eyes. He saves Luce from a falling statue of an angel in the cemetery adjoining the school. He feigns disinterest in Luce, trying to ignore her for her own "safety", but is drawn to her nonetheless."


“All that is good in Heaven and on Earth is born of love. This war is not just. This war is not good. Love is the only thing worth fighting for.”

“I will always catch you when you fall” 

“Will you tell me again?" he asked, almost shyly. "Will you tell me what I am?" 
"You're an angel," she repeated slowly, surprised to see Daniel close his eyes and moan in pleasure, almost as if they were kissing. "I'm in love with an angel.” 


Team Cam - Fallen Series by Lauren Kate

Name - Cam Briel
Fallen Angel
Looks - Pale, black hair and green eyes
"Cam is the antagonist of the story and Luce’s other romantic interest. He is also a fallen angel. Cam is tall, has a pale complexion, and has black hair and green eyes. He has a tattoo of a sunburst on the back of his neck. He continuously tries to charm Luce, going to great lengths to capture her attention on numerous occasions. He is antagonistic towards Daniel and Arriane throughout the novel."


“You don't really know either of us," Cam said, standing and stepping away, "but you're prepared to choose right now, huh?” 

"Cam’s wings were so bright they were almost blinding as they pulsed.
“Holy Hell,” Callie whispered, blinking.
“More or less,” Arriane said."

 “It was like the more deranged she felt inside, the more available Cam became. What if it was enough just to stand here in the arms of someone who cared about her, to let his simple affection steady her for a little while?”


Now that you've read a little bit about each of the guys in today's Team Smackdown is time to vote for your favorite!  The Team that wins today will face another Team in a future round.

Team Xander vs Team Ky  (Matched Series)

Team Xander - Matched Series by Ally Condie

Name - Xander Carrow
Looks - Blue eyes, blonde hair

"Xander Thomas Carrow lives in the Mapletree Borough with his mother, father and older brother. Xander lives on the same street as his best friend Cassia Reyes, and attends second school. He is very smart and learns quickly. His favorites include swimming and games of skill or group games. While Cassia thought his favorite color was green, it is actually blue. His predicted occupation is Official."


"You look beautiful"

 “Are you nervous?” In the seat next to him, Xander’s older brother begins to tell my mother the story of his Match Banquet. It won’t be long now until Xander and I have our own stories to tell.
“No,” I say. But Xander’s my best friend. He knows me too well.
“You lie,” he says, teasing. “You are nervous.”
“Aren’t you?”
“Not me. I’m ready.” He says it without hesitation, and I believe him. Xander is the kind of person who is sure about what he wants.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re nervous, Cassia,” he says gently. “Almost ninety-three percent of those attending their Match Banquet exhibit some signs of nervousness.”
I have to laugh. “Did you memorize all of the official Matching material?”
“Almost,” Xander says, grinning. He holds his hands out as if to say, What did you expect?


Team Ky - Matched Series by Ally Condie

Name - Ky Markham
Looks - Dark hair, blue eyes

"Ky moved to Mapletree Borough with Society approval when he was 10 years old after his mother and father were killed. Due to an unknown infraction that his father committed, he was given aberration status. His artifact is a gold compass, which only his parents knew about. The compass was the only artifact that Aida and his mother's parents owned and was passed along to them. Aida then gifted it to Ky.
Since leaving the Outer Provinces, he has learned to blend in and not draw notice to himself. His favorite smell is sage." 


I don’t care about the artifact. I couldn’t sleep all night, worrying that I’d gotten you in trouble. I care about you.

“Cassia. I know which life is my real one now, no matter what happens. It’s the one with you. For some reason, knowing that even one person knows my story makes things different. Maybe it’s like the poem says. Maybe this is my way of not going gentle. I love you."

Because in the end you can’t always choose what to keep. You can only choose how you let it go.” 


 Now that you've read a little bit about each of the guys in today's Team Smackdown is time to vote for your favorite!  The Team that wins today will face another Team in a future round.
