Skye’s Enemy: Ryan Eddington

Ryan Eddington is a smooth talker, but a brutal adversary. Once he learns that Skye is to be kidnapped because of her ability to teleport, and sold to the renegades in Mohrkhavn, he’s excited about the challenge. His choice of assistants leaves something to be desired. While all are cruel amd self-serving, none of them is particularly bright.

Ryan does not trust any of them, even his main right-hand man, Deputy Reynolds.  Reynold’s burly cousin Gus makes mistake after mistake trying to prove his worth which adds both humor and levity to the grim scenes. Nevertheless, Eddington is not amused as he himself aspires to move up the criminal ladder and achieve greater power.

Of course every vilian has, if not redeeming characteristics, at least some softer, more human traits and Eddington is not without them. Especially when he takes to wooing someone who can get him closer to Skye. Ultimately he shows his hand though, which leads to a frightening confrontation.

Ryan is handsome, debonair, sophisticated when he needs to be, shrewd, clever, calculating, romantic, generous, and deceptive. If I had to picture his looks it would be something like Pierce Brosnan today.

What happens to Eddington? This is Book One of the trilogy, so we’ll see.
