Today the topic of Top 5 Sundays at Larissa’s Bookish Life is Best Heroes & Heroines of 2011.
No romantic couples here! I left out old favorites so that I don’t just focus on them all the time.
1, Phyrne Fisher by Kerry Greenwood
I discovered this historical mystery series this year and it’s been a fun ride.
2, October “Toby” Daye by Seanan McGuire
I have to admire her determination and loyalty.
3, Sorcha Faris by Philippa Ballantine
She’s stubborn and plain-spoken woman who doesn’t suffer fools. She also smokes cigars.
4, The Boss by Kristine Kathryn Rucsh
The nameless first person narrator in Rusch’s newest SF series.
5, Briar Wilks by Cherie Priest
The fierce mother defending her son.
1, Mingan, the Grey Wolf by Elizabeth Bear
The tortured Fenris the Wolf who has to live with the consequences of his actions.
2, Zhu Irzh by Liz Williams
He’s a demon and works as a police officer in Singapore Three.
3, David by Rachel Caine
Joanne’s loyal Djinn lover.
4, Dead Rick by Marie Brennan
Another tortured male character, although a fae this time.
5, Dante Alighieri by Giulio Leoni
A very contrary character who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks.
Now, a list of favorite secondary characters would have been truly hard.
