Some time ago, I was reading Kat Goodwin’s blog. It’s a treasure trove of information and inspiration. You should check it out.
Anyway, I was reading this particular post regarding women in films and it got me thinking about female characters in general. More specifically, it got me thinking about fictional women I’ve read that have inspired me to do or be better.
And guess what, WONDER WOMAN is here! I can’t wait to go see it. Enjoy the trailer until you can go, too.
Anyway, here are my favorite five female characters in Fantasy/Science Fiction (literature):
- Damaya/Syenite/Essun from The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin
- Sabriel from The Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix
- Juliette from Hugh Howey’s Silo series
- Shenza Waik from The Magister’s Mask by Deby Fredericks
- Lorena Tesserak from my own Ghost Stories
That’s my list. What’s yours?
