THE ORIGINALS: The Resurrection Blog Tour & Giveaway – Klaus
Today we’re excited to celebrate the upcoming release of The Originals: The Resurrection with an ode to our favorite maniacal Mikaelson, Klaus! Make sure to scroll down and enter the fab giveaway, and check out the rest of the stops on the blog tour put on by the lovely folks at Kismet Book Tours.
Why We Love Klaus Mikaelson
He’s a pretty dangerous Original, not only damn near impossible to kill, but a hybrid werewolf/vampire.
His siblings try to stick beside him over the centuries, but he can’t help but make their lives difficult (that is, when he hasn’t daggered them to wait out a few decades as punishment). Klaus is the first to admit he has issues.
While he prefers blood, Klaus can appreciate the finer beverages when necessary (and he always looks equal parts psycho and stylish while doing it).
Klaus always has his sights set on ultimate power, whether he’s bringing terror to Mystic Falls, or maneuvering in his old stomping grounds, New Orleans. Wherever Klaus is, drama and a body count follows.
He has his own unique way of dealing with conflict.
Despite being psychotic and sadistic, he can still deliver the swoon, and somehow we’re always rooting for him to find true love, whether with Caroline, Camille, or Vivianne (KLAROLINE FOREVER).
Also, we pretty much melt when his paternal instincts with baby Hope trump his psychotic instincts.
But that doesn’t mean he can’t turn into a monster in a heartbeat, and bring serious terror.
You do NOT want to get on his bad side. The guy can hold a grudge like nobody’s business.
Somehow, no matter how evil and dastardly Klaus gets, we can’t help but love him. He just makes everything more fun!
About The Originals:
Family is power. The Original Vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together always and forever. But even when you’re immortal, promises are hard to keep.
Klaus, Rebekah and Elijah Mikaelson had won it all, only to lose it again by 1788. Control of New Orleans is split between the vampires and the werewolves, much to Klaus’s displeasure.
In a dangerous attempt to reclaim his home, Klaus decides to build a vampire army to take out the werewolves once and for all. If he can’t have love, then he’ll settle for power. Elijah lets his brother take the reins as he turns his attentions to a beautiful and mysterious witch. But Rebekah has had enough of her brothers’ love of bloodshed and begins a journey to find her first home and the key to her family’s immortality.
As the battles rages on, the siblings must come together and fight for what they believe in most: family.
