Q. It's that pesky magic book fairy again! She has another wish: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?
This was quite a hard one for me to answer. A lot of my favourite books that immediately came to mind are all set in AUs that I really wouldn't want to live in! For example: my favourite book so far this year is The Painted Man by Peter V. Brett - but in his world demons come out at night and gobble up anything they can get their hands on, making humans basically prisoners in their own homes once night falls. So, much as I love that world, I'm not sure I'd want to live there!
So which reality do I like? I finally decided to go with the urban fantasy world created by Russian author Sergei Lukyanenko in his Watch series. It was interesting to read a Russian take on UF. I liked the ideas he presented, that your choice to be good or bad depended on the mood you were in when your powers first start manifesting and that these two opposing teams watch over humans but are not allowed to interfere. I'd like to think that I'd be part of the Night Watch (the good guys) if I were in his world, but knowing how often I get hit by bad moods that might just be wishful thinking!
