Now let’s talk about some badass chicks!
When coming up with ideas for this week of all things paranormal it occurred to me that, what the hell? I do nothing on the protagonists these books are centered around? That’s just wrong. So wrong.
I will admit that this post was the one slotted to be scratched if I ran out of time. Thank God my hypocrisy can remain with things like– talking about people who talk about people. And we can have some fun with these heroines we love and sometimes hate.
Badass thy name is Evie…
From the Premonition series by Amy Bartol.
Evie Claremont’s life changed forever the first time she felt the butterflies-in-the -tummy pull that drew her straight to Reed Wellington. She went from normal college freshman to healing unbelievably fast, super-human hearing, and she could outrun a train, ya know, like Superman. But Evie is no super hero. She’s a badass Serph Angel that holds the key to ending a war between the Fallen and Heaven. Only she has no clue until she sprouts her wings and discovers the Fallen are after her.
So is Brennus, a king of the undead, evil faeries (or fellas) that show up in INTUITION (book #2) and never leave. Like a pimple that comes back every month. (yeah, I went there)
As Evie accepts who and what she is, she falls in love with Reed, discovers she has a soul mate (Russell), is betrayed by a friend none of us saw coming, is kidnapped repeatedly, tortured, hunted by her own kind, and through all this– our girl is NEVER the damsel in distress. Her ass is saved many times, but it is Evie who makes hard and fast decisions in the name of love, friendship and what is right.
Badass thy name is also Ruby…
Folks, holy crap. If you have not read Caged by Amber Lynn Natusch then do so. Now.
For the first 28 years of Ruby’s life she was blind. Until an attack in the woods left her parents dead and Ruby near death, naked, alone, and unconscious.
She woke with her sight, that took a backseat to her injuries and fear. Then this happened…
“I opened my eyes to a man. My breathing stopped short and I stared. I wasn’t aware of the movement of my arm until I could actually see my own hand touching his face in adoration. He was smiling at me. I closed my eyes and exploded his face with my hands as I’d done a million times to others throughout my life….”
That man was Sean. ❤
I wasn’t always down with Ruby’s choices, or her lack of being able to see what was so clear to me. BUT, this all stays true to who Ruby is. She led a sightless, sheltered, and closed off emotional life. This left her naive, and too trusting at times and not trusting enough at others. She uses humor as a defense mechanism, and her sarcastic attitude covers what she’s really feeling. I just love her.
Ruby is an empath who can sense other’s emotions. But that not the weirdest thing about her. Come to find out Ruby is something rare, so incredibly rare that she becomes a target. And before Ruby has time to digest any of it, and before Sean can figure out what to do, the unthinkable happens and our innocent Ruby suffers at the hands of her own kind. In ways that (thank God) the author didn’t drag us through.
But Ruby is strong, determined and yes, a total and complete badass. WHOOT!
That’s just in book #1. There are 5 more books in this series so far.
Badass thy nickname is Maggie…
From the Guardian Trilogy by Laury Falter
What if you had a gift to visit Heaven in your sleep? What would you do with it? Who would you see?
If you’re Magdalene Tanner you use it to help others by setting up a table in a park and offer to bring messages to people’s loved one.
You love her already, right? It gets better, way better. Miss Messenger is being watched, and feels a sense a dread closing in on her.
Enter Eran, guardian angel to Maggie. Turns out Maggie is the last messenger on Earth and she’s lived many lifetimes. So have her enemies, the Fallen. Maggie takes this news head on and sets out to destroy the Fallen. She trains hard and does her best to protect those she loves, including Eran whose sole purpose is to protect her.
On a swoon-worthy note: Maggie can visit former lives in Heaven through scrolls for each soul. And of course, Maggie does what any of us would do… she visits Eran!!! Oh God! It’s all so real and HE’S THERE waiting… always waiting for his girl!
Badassery thy name is Katy…
From the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Let’s just start off with this: Katy endures Daemon Black’s shirtless, pen-poking, taunting, Kitty-calling ass in a way that makes me want to nominate her for something official… like an award for the best poker face. Because if I lived next door to Daemon, you can bet your then-jealous ass I’d be all about it. Katy will take no one’s crap, is proud of who she is, and will stop at nothing to protect those she loves.
Katy moves to small town USA with her double shift working mom after her father’s death and ends up BFF’s with the sort of mysterious girl next door. Dee also has a twin brother, Daemon. Equally mysterious and a total jerk.
One near fatal mistake later and Katy finds out why. Daemon saves her life, but in doing so changes her life in an irreversible way. Where before she worried about making meals, normal teenage crap, reading books, and blogging… Katy is throw into a world she should have never known existed and also, she’s glowing and moving things by thought. And now that she does, shit gets real– quick. Katy can’t control her new powers and trains her butt off. The first time Daemon and the rest of the Luxen see Katy tap into the “source”, they were just as awestruck as the rest of us.
In book #4, Origin, Daemon Black will burn down the world to save his girl. And Katy will stop at nothing to save herself.
Tomorrow is our interview with Brennus, you do not want to miss it! We’ll also have two more giveaways tomorrow– Yep, time to pick a team, folks.
We’ll also have some juicy teasers
