Author Spotlight - Allyson Gottlieb: Cast Photos & Bios

Today is the last day of the Author Spotlight series on Allyson Gottlieb. We get a peak at the characters of DARKEST LEGACY with photos and a little information on each of them.

It's hard to capture the complete essence of a character in one photo. But I always like to see what photos the authors pick to represent their characters. Although they might not always be the same as our own vision, it's still interesting to get an idea of what the characters might look like.

A lot of the times, for me, no matter what the character's description is in the book, I picture them completely different.
For instance, I may picture this...

when they're supposed to look like this...

 Or vice versa! (I'm weird I know!)

Now...on to the DARKEST LEGACY photos!

If you've read DARKEST LEGACY, how do these cast photos compare to how you pictured the characters?

Personally, I pictured this Valentine a lot like the Valentine Morgenstern I envisioned from TMI series. All handsome and regal-like.These two Valentine's are quite a bit alike, actually. And I could definitely see Allyson's choice being the mysterious & mischievous boy at Ravenwood.

This concludes the Author Spotlight Allyson Gottlieb Edition! I hope you enjoyed all of this week's posts. Allyson was amazing!
