Bae traits: an actual beefcake, moody af, PINE GREEN EYES, smells like and snow and pine which is hot af, the most powerful full blooded fae male, THE LONG SILVER WHITE HAIR THOUGH, tragic backstory, loves Aelin so much that I can’t even comprehend it most days, aggressive biter, turns into an actual hawk, an affinity for gold lingerie, will literally destroy a bitch
Gods, he was brilliant. Cunning and wicked and brilliant. Even when he beat the hell out of her. Every. Damn. Day.
Rowan is one of the best fantasy heroes I have ever read about. He is so prickly and rude and assholish until he meets Aelin and then it’s like the sun came out, the birds started singing, a rainbow formed, and leprechauns frolicked all around with cookies and gold. He is so loyal and faithful and more protective than any other fae I have read about it. Man. I cannot.
“When we get back, remind me to prove you wrong about every thought that just went through your head. I’ll even let you decide how I tell you: with words”- his eyes flickered once to her mouth- “or with my teeth and tongue.”
I feel like I can’t even express to you appropriately just how amazing Rowan actually is. You should probably just read about him yourself to get the full effect.
