We've all had our moments of wanting to kill Alek.
Kill Alek...what's with people wanting to kill Alek?

He's a douche sometimes

And I quote - "Is that how real soldiers cry?"

No! He apologized! I think everyone wanted to punch him then, though.

Honestly, none of the things Alek said really bothered me definitely not to the point of wanting to hurt him. A lot of the other characters annoyed me more than he did. So when he said some of those things they really didn't trouble me. Or if they did, only for a split second and most of it was just disappointed. I always feel as though Alek gets the short end of the stick.

Even though he made me mad, I can understand him. I mean, if one of my friends hid a secret that big, I would be pretty mad.

I completely agree with this. Alek has gone through so much shit (is profanity allowed here, I feel like I have sworn too much). And most of his douche-like comments he has had a good reason to make. And to be honest, they really are not that bad. I am sure everyone of you have said something hurtful to a friend when you got mad/upset/distressed, but did they then turn around punch you? Despite some of Alek's snottiness (for lack of a better word), he is still a very good guy in the book. And he is much better than Volger and Barlow.

I agree. However, I don't think that he should have started thinking completely differently of Deryn, just because she was a girl.

I wondered that too... I mean, well, ehhhhh, ya beter sit down for this.

So, ya know how Alek had always made a big deal out of being able to trust his 'allies'? Well, taking that in mind, I

believe he was angered that Deryn did not tell him that, so, he thought she thought she couldn't trust him, which leads

us back to the 'trusting my 'allies" thing, factoring in that he was mad he had told her HIS secrets, and considering the

general notion of teens to get mad and stay mad, that adds up to and angry prince. Though, I do agree it seems a bit

much to get THAT mad.
