Last week, Barnes and Noble published their 10 most badass women in fantasy literature list so I thought I’d weigh-in on the topic. I also wanted to shout out to the gals from Addicted 2 Heroines who are currently hosting a hottest heroine covers of 2013 contest which was a huge help when I was doing research for this post.
I definitely agree with Gin Blanco from Jennifer Estep’s ELEMENTAL ASSASSIN series and KATE DANIELS by Ilona Andrews. And, even though I haven’t read many installments in Faith Hunter’s JANE YELLOWROCK series or in Jaye Wells’ SABINA KANE series; I understand how these two heroines ended up on this list. I agree that Marmee Noir was badass back-in-the-day but I have since stopped reading Laurell K. Hamilton’s ANITA BLAKE series so I don’t really get why she’s number one.
My personal picks would including Sierra Dean’s SECRET MCQUEEN, Cat from Jeaniene Frost’s NIGHT HUNTRESS series and Merit of the CHICAGOLAND VAMPIRES (Chloe Neill). Oh, and possibly Andrea Nash from the KATE DANIELS WORLD (Ilona Andrews) but I hate having two characters from the same series on one top 10 list.
