President Snow from The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins is one of the worst rulers
Ugh…. President Snow, where to start with this incredibly awful man? Well he makes children fight to the death, keeps people”in line” with fear tactics. He has no problem in taking others lives and he let’s those in other districts starve.
I will definitely NOT be reading Suzanne Collins new prequel book where Snow is a “good guy”.
*you can grab the Hunger Games trilogy off kobo*
The Hawk from The Hunter’s Truce Series by Elle Beaumont
Hmmm, let me count all the ways The Hawk is a treacherous evil snake. Murder? Check! Kidnapping? Check! Torture? Yep! Manipulation? She’s got that covered too!
*You can grab all 4 books in this series Hunter’s Truce, Royal’s Vow, Assassin’s Gambit and Queens Edge off Kobo*
Zues from The Power of Hades by Eliza Raine
Arrogant and a downright giant jerk! The Power of Hades is as the title suggests regarding Hades. Even though Hades is the lord of the underworld I still think Zues is SO much worse. He misleads people, sleeps with others besides his wife, thinks he’s all that, kidnaps Persephone, try’s to seduce her and seems to get a thrill out of other’s suffering. He’s a major jackass!!!
The Commander from Jaded by K.M Robinson
He is selfish, has no issues with others suffering, is conniving and just a downright awful and terrible jerk!
*You can grab Jaded for free off Kobo*
Final thoughts on the worst rulers
So after going over 4 horrible, horrible rulers I can’t think of any others….. lol. I can think of lots of horrible people but they weren’t rulers. Who are some incredibly awful rulers you’ve come across in a book(s)?
What makes a ruler horrible for you? Perhaps it is how they treat their people or family. Maybe they are like President Snow and let needless suffering continue, or maybe they are just a giant jerk! Let me know down in the comments below.
Till next time book friends,
