Top Ten Books I'd Give To Readers Who Have Never Read
Books with a Fierce Heroine!
In no particular order..
1) Gin from Spider's Bite (Elemental Assassin Series) by Jennifer Estep!
This serious has be obsessed with Gin, the main character, who is one of the most kick ass females I've EVER read about. She's an assassin whose actually trying to quit being an assassin. But that seems to come back to bite her in the ass. I love Gin. She's one of my all time favorite book characters, and heroines. She is extremely fierce!
2) Celaena from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Celaena is a very young assassin her world. She's been in jail for a really long time, but gets asked by a Prince to come help him in a challenge to one up his father. Celaena feels there is very little choice for her, either stay locked up or go fight. She is another great example of a Fierce heroine. She is another assassin, but she also just wants to live now and be away from it all. But people keep pulling her back, and she has to use her skills to fight for her survival all the while being a smart, witty young woman who is kind of scary too!
3) Dani from Iced by Karen Marie Moning
Dani is another young heroine, but I do believe we get to see her grow up in these books. She is extremely foul mouthed, but she's also very protective of those she cares for. And I do believe she is very fierce and will only get better as the series continues.
4) Lilli from Move the Sun by Susan Fanetti
Lilli Accardo is the main heroine in this story. And she is an ex-military woman out for revenge on the man who ended up destroying her career and killing innocent lives. Along the way she meets her match in Isaac, the local MC president. Lilli is a woman you do not want to mess with. She will mess you up the moment you cross her, and she isn't afraid to get her hands dirty. She is an excellent fierce heroine!
5) Merit from Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill
Meri is just your normal every day college student until she gets attacked and changed into a vampire. The vampires just became public knowledge not too long ago, and now Merit is one of them. Once she starts training everyone soon realizes that Merit has gifts, and is extremely loyal to those she cares for. This is why Merit is so fierce. She even eventually becomes a protector, but I won't give that away. Just know that Meri is another kick ass heroine who I adore!
6) Mack from Bloodfire by Helen Harper
Mack seems to be your ordinary human living with shape shifters... Yeah, She's not so ordinary especially when her whole world starts to change and she starts to learn new things about herself. Mack is another kick ass heroine, who is loyal, and very very smart. She's also very funny as well.
7) Cat from Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
Cat is a woman on a mission. She's a self appointed vampire hunter. After discovering she was half vampire half human at a young age she has decided to hunt the vampires down and kill them. Until the day she runs into a very old powerful vampire named Bones.
This is the start of a very awesome series, with lots of drama and action and romance. But what makes it so special besides the amazing hero, is the kick ass female, Cat! She is just out to protect those she loves, and hurt those who wish to do harm to the innocence. She goes under all kinds of training to become very powerful, and her unique abilities help her out greatly.
8) Mercy from Moon Called by Patricia Briggs
Mercy is a young mechanic shifter. Well she's not exactly classified as any normal type of shifter, she's special. She also lives next door to a pack of werewolves. While Mercy is normally just living her life, ever thing changes when she gets sucked into the drama next door. Not only that but her past seems to be coming back to haunt her. Mercy is going to do whatever she can to help those she loves, and that is what brings out the fierceness in Mercy!
9) Kate from Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews!
Kate Daniels is the definition of Fierce in my opinion. She's the magic mercenary who makes her living cleaning up magical problems. But when a new problem comes to her, she has to be extremely tough to get through all the issues ahead. I love Kate Daniels, she is another amazing heroine who isn't just tough, but also loves fiercely, and isn't afraid to say what she needs to or do what she needs to!
10) Ally from Rock Chick Revolution by Kristen Ashley!
Ally has seen all of her friends and family find the one they love and follow their dreams. In this book it is her turn to find it as well. But Ally is a lot different from most of her friends. She is extremely fierce. It's why she wants to follow in her brother's footsteps and become a P.I! And she does a wonderful job of it as well. Ally was another amazing character, with lots of spunk, and an amazing sleuth!
And that is the end of my list! Let me know what you think?
