Greetings, all, human or other!
This post is a little different, as you might notice, because I’m hoping it’ll be put forth on Tor.com, one of my most favorite places to visit on the web. Shameless plug? Perhaps. Regardless, this is an article I decided to attempt after reading so many books with kick-ass characters in it! Murderbot, Binti, Medusa, to name but a few…
#1: Murderbot. We all love her, and we all want to be her in our secret heart of hearts, but know such a thing can never be. She’s awesome, she’s a mystery, and she’s bad-ass. Of course, most of us aren’t even sure if she’s a she. But for four novellas, the story seems much larger than what it is, and I can only hope that the series becomes a tv show on Netflix, because it would be well deserved.
#2: Medusa. She’s almost as much of a bad-ass as Murderbot. She’s definitely more on the creepy end of the scale, but she’s still got heart and bravery and wit. Her story is only one book so far, but it’s an awesome story nonetheless. I really hope it gets expanded further, and this is another one that would be a killer Netflix series.
#3: Binti. She has three books that are fixing to be in its first ever omnibus edition, which is pretty awesome. I love her, and her people, and the entire story of her adventures is pretty out there. It’s a cool series to read, if you haven’t read it yet already, and I highly recommend that you do. She’s just as much of a strong character as Medusa and Murderbot, and I’m sure you’ll fall for her just as much as I have.
And that’s the Top Three Most Dangerous Female Creatures that I’ve picked! I plan on expanding this next year, in the hopes that more novellas are written with such strong female protagonists. It’s astonishing to see just how much novellas have grown in the last year alone, and I wish all the authors luck in their endeavors. Let’s just hope that Murderbot doesn’t join forces with Medusa and Binti…
For the three of them together could take over galaxies!
Until next time,
-Pass Me That Book.
