Somehow, I missed posting Top Ten Favorite Kick-Ass Heroines, and I've regretted it ever since. So I decided to remedy this mistake!
3. Saba from Blood Red Road - Saba is one tough cookie. She may not start off as the most likable character, but I couldn't help but admire her fighting spirit.
6-7. Daenerys Targaryen / Arya Stark from A Song of Ice and Fire series - This may be cheating, considering I have yet to actually read the books. But I have watched the show, and Daenerys is by far my favorite character, with Arya coming in as a close second. You don't mess with Daenerys. You just don't. And Arya would much rather wield a sword than do embroidery.
8. Alanna from the Song of the Lioness series - Alanna proves that a woman can achieve knighthood. She overcomes every obstacle thrown in her way and becomes an inspiration for other aspiring lady knights.
9. Yelena from the Magic Study series - I only started this series recently, but I can already tell Yelena is a fighter. In Poison Study, she refuses to remain defenseless and she has others train her to fight. With her magical abilities increasing in strength as well, she is shaping into a powerful woman.
10. Ismae from Grave Mercy - Ismae owns a headband of poisonous pearls and garrote bracelets. You obviously don't want to get on her bad side.
What's your Top Ten this week?
