This week it’s all about the strong female characters! These are in no particular order, because they are all amazing in their own right.
1. Luna Lovegood – Order of the Phoenix – I love Luna, I love her attitude and her style. I love her desire to see the good in the bad, but not be afraid to go after the right thing even if it means danger.
2. Sybella – His Fair Assassin series – I love the first two books in this serie (have yet to read the third) and I adore all of three of the ladies in this series but Sybella is my favorite. I love how fierce she is.
3. Cress – The Lunar Chronicles – Cress is a fun heroine, and a lot like Luna in that aspect. She’s not the typical sort of hero and her people skills are on the low end, but she’s so bubbly and she tries her hardest even when the situation is completely new to her.
4. Daenerys Targaryen – A Song of Ice and Fire – She is my absolute favorite character in this series so far (I’m part way through book 3). She’s fierce and I will admit a bit naive to the reality of ruling from the Iron Throne, she has this innate fire and determination that makes me want her to conquer everything. Plus she has so much grace. After everything she’s been through she finds her strength and refuses to let it go.
5. Cara Devon – The Artifact Hunters – We need more woman like Cara in books. She’s independent, knows how to hold her own, and knows how to handle her fear. I love her relationship with Nate hasn’t tamed her fire at all.
6. Lilah – Benny Imura – If you notice most of this list includes women who can use a weapon…Lilah is no different. She will protect what she cares about at any cost. Sure she’s sometimes quick to judge, but in the world of adapt or die she has plenty of reason to.
7. Thor – Thor – AH! I’ve always liked Thor as a comic back when Thor Odinson was Thor…but now that the Thor title has passed to a woman I’m in love.
I’m super picky about the term favorite, so I don’t use it a lot when it comes to characters hence the short list.
