YA Fantasy Character Showdown

Something is going down. Something big.

How would you like to see Edward duke it out against Hermione? Or Katniss and Katsa? Well, guess what? You can, in the first ever YA Fantasy Showdown. In celebration of Suzanne Collin’s final book in the Hunger Games trilogy, a group of bloggers are pitting some of the best-known characters in YA in the ultimate showdown. And you get to pick the winner.

That’s right. You read the battles, evaluate the characters, and vote for who has the honor of moving on to the next round. It’s a tournament like you’ve never seen before (because there’s more). The authors have been asked to participate and advocate their character in writing their own version of the battle. It’s going to be truly epic. Or at least a good way to pass the time until Mockingjay comes out. It all goes down August 10th.
I don't know about you guys, but this YA Fantasy Character Showdown sounds like the best thing since microwaved popcorn. Which, coincidentally, I will be needing a lot of if I'm going to be following this (I need my sustenance).

Be sure to go to http://yafantasyshowdown.weebly.com/ to check out the lineup. There's quite a varied cast to look forward to.

Well, you know where I'll be on August 10.

EDIT: Guess what? I've received a special preview of what's to come. Why? Because I'm a Very Important Person (if you'll excuse my somewhat inflated ego). Be jealous. Be very jealous. And now I can honestly tell you guys that's this is all worth waiting for. Be there!
