Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week our topic is: Top Ten Favorite Characters in High Fantasy.
Personally, I cannot get enough of YA High Fantasy. I love it. I love it. I love it! Here is a list of my top ten favorites in no particular order.
Katsa: Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1) byKristin Cashore
Out of all the Graceling Realm series main characters, Katsa is most definitely my favorite.
Sage: The False Prince (The Ascendance Trilogy, #1) byJennifer A. Nielsen
I cannot have a top ten favorite character without mentioning Sage. I love this boy so much. His sass and humor made this book.
Opal: Storm Glass (Glass, #1) byMaria V. Snyder
Kristen and I greatly differ on our opinions of this series. And despite Opal's questionable choices throughout this series, I love her.
Kel: First Test (Protector of the Small, #1) byTamora Pierce
Keladry (aka Kel) was really my first introduction into YA high fantasy as a kid. I really admired Kel and her story. So much so, that the Protector of the Small series is still probably my favorite from Tamora Pierce.
Elisa: The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1) byRae Carson
Elisa sure didn't win me over when I first met her, but, boy, as the story progressed, I was on Team Elisa all the way.
Ananna: The Assassin's Curse (The Assassin's Curse, #1) byCassandra Rose Clarke
Not only is Ananna badass… she escapes from her arranged marriage on the back of a camel. Love it.
Liyana: Vessel bySarah Beth Durst
I adored this book so much, and part of the reason was Liyana.
Sydelle: Brightly Woven byAlexandra Bracken
Sydelle is a spunky, headstrong girl who is fiercely loyal. I loved everything about her and Brightly Woven.
Velek: Poison Study (Study, #1) byMaria V. Snyder
Ok, I love Yelena. Don't get me wrong. But Valek wins over this pick for me. Only one word is needed… yum. Seriously, where can I find a guy that like?
The Darkling: Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1) byLeigh Bardugo
The Darkling is such a hard man to put my finger on. Sure, he is a bad guy, but I cannot help but love him.
