5 Badass Heroines in Fantasy

Fantasy books with leading female characters become more and more prevalent and diverse each year. Women don’t have to be “strong” like men to be the main character of a book or series. In fact, we’d rather read about women who are trying their best in the circumstances they are given. Looking for new books with an awesome female lead? We’ve got a list of badass female characters; you should definitely check out!


Nightsoul (Raven Cursed #3) by McKenzie Hunter

My magic can kill. Now, it might be the reason I die. For years, I thought I was Raven Cursed—only to discover I’m something much worse. But nothing about my life is as shocking as what I discover about Mephisto, the mysterious and alluring client who’s always had a special interest in me. Now I know why.

My curse and Mephisto’s secrets have to take a back seat when the most powerful vampire in the city hires me for a job. It seems simple enough: negotiate the acquisition of a weapon that can kill his kind faster than a stake to the heart. In my line of business, there are rules that you never break—or if you do, you make damn sure no one finds out. First, never betray a client. Second, never piss off a vampire, especially the Master of the City. Somehow, I managed to do both.

Dragon Fated (Call of Ancient Magic Book 1) by River King

I’m a magical protector for hire, a half-fae used to killing goblins and big, ugly trolls. But there’s something more sinister stalking this dragon, and the Council has hired me to figure out who. Except the dragon doesn’t exactly want my help. He figures a half-fae like me isn't up to the challenge. But I figure his sexy ass needs someone who can look at things a bit differently. Someone who doesn't play the politics game. Someone who can't be bought. Because this job isn't for the faint of heart. One wrong step, and we might both be killed. And trust me, it's effing hard to kill a half-fae who doesn't want to die.
