Day 26 – Best hero
I’ve written about a lot of protagonists in previous posts. But when I think about a hero, someone I can admire and perhaps even imitate somewhat, I find myself thinking about a classic: Robin Hood. The man who stood for common people and who made the outlaw’s no doubt miserable life romantic and even heroic. I specifically like idealized, non-gritty and even fantastic versions of him and his merry band. Not the modern books.

Day 27 – Most epic scene ever
Another difficult one. I’ve read quite a few books with epic scenes, no matter if they are called epic fantasy or not. Space opera has lots of epic scenes as well, and so does historical fiction when it concentrates on war. I don’t really have a clue which one I should choose. Perhaps one of the battles in Sanderson’s Hero of Ages.
