Welcome to Top 10 Tuesday! This week’s topic is
Favorite Heroes & Heroines!
I’m going to choose characters who I think show courage, went on some kind of adventure or journey, and faced epic challenges and enemies.
Special thanks to @ThatArtsyReaderGirl who hosts TTT. Let’s get to it!
Favorite Heroes & Heroines
The Once and Future King – TH White
I’ll start the list with my favorite true hero. I picked him because in this story, we get to see a small kid grow up to be a great King. You get live his life right along with him so his growth is obvious, along with the challenges, and the losses.
Nettle & Bone -T. Kingfisher
She’s an unusual heroine who has a lovely heart and a penchant for rescuing Queen-sisters from truly evil King-husbands. And saving kingdoms.
Evie Von Rathe
The Clackity – Lora Senf
She’s a middle-grade aged kid who ventures into terrifying places to rescue her family. A real heroine, even at a young age.
Trail of Lightning – Rebecca Roanhorse
She’s a Navajo woman living in the post-apocalypse. She’s been gifted with clan powers… but because of them, she’s known as the Monster Slayer.
World War Z – Max Brooks
He’s just one of many in the WWZ book, but he’s my favorite hero of the story. He was right on the front lines of the zombie war and did his best to save the world.
Manacled – SenLinLu
Yes, it’s fanfic but this story was longer than most books and I loved it.
Draco is a completely different character than in the original HP universe. He’s damaged and broken, but finds a way to be a hero in the end.
Devolution – Max Brooks
Not all heroines have happy endings.
This one has a great evolution from city girl who freaks out about the smallest inconvenience, to bad ass sasquatch hunter who does her best to save her friends.
Minor Mage – T. Kingfisher
A young wizard and his armadillo familiar set off on a journey
to save his town.
The Looking Glass Wars – Frank Beddor
Princess Alyss’ personal bodyguard. He literally goes to another world to try and rescue her, fighting all kinds of bad guys along the way.
The Man Who Caught the Storm – Brantley Hargrove
Okay, this one isn’t a fictional character but Tim Samaras was a true hero. The work that his team did in studying tornadoes has directly saved thousands of lives.
Bonus hero and one of my favorite of all time:
Satoru / Mumen Rider
One Punch Man – ONE
“I know no one expects much from me. And I know better than anyone how useless a C Class hero is. I know I’m too weak even for B Class! I know more than anyone else that I’ll never beat you. But I must fight you anyway!”
