Memory of Light – 14th Book in the Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan/Brandon Sanderson
That’s me holding the FINAL volume of my most favorite EPIC fantasy series ever written. The First book of a total of fourteen books was first written in 1990 when I was just a wee lad…well just out of high school anyways.
This was a delayed Christmas present pre-ordered on Amazon. It had a release date of January 8th. It just came in the mail……oh yeah..
Ever hear of Lord of the Rings? Well this Story rolls over that with a Steam Roller then backs up and rolls over it again….and then over…and over…you get the picture…
If you like fantasy stories and you haven’t read the first book in the series then first you need to slap yourself. Then next put your head in a bucket of cold water, and then go to the library or scrap up some money, or fence some jewelry and go get it!
It has every thing you could wish for destiny, engaging epic characters, awesome battles, and a heart most of all…
So go check it out …nuff said beacause a movies a long time coming you lazy bastards!
Over the weekend I just saw the prequel to John Carpenter’s ” The Thing” . ..which I thought was pretty good. In it, there is a woman heroine as the strong leading role (something we don’t have enough I might add) and that led me to thinking. What if I compiled a list of at least ten or more of the strongest woman heroines I have ever read about in literature, be it a book, a comic book, or seen in a movie, or television series and have them duke it out one on one. Then I thought,t how I can involve my bloggers who come to my sight.
I decided I would issue a challenge to you guys. I would like to write a confrontation between two of the Bad Ass heroines listed below, but I would like your help in choosing what two woman to pick for the fight. Yes, I know it’s gratutious violence between two woman – isn’t life wonderful. So here goes.
Keep in mind these are heroines I have been exposed to. I am sure I will miss a a few if not a lot you probably know that I do not. So sorry right now if I miss any of your favorites.
I decided on a list of sixteen woman to choose from. I would like if you could also challenge yourself and come with your own little battle royale. If you wish to write your own confrontation please respond to this challenge by either writing out the challenge in full in a reply to my post or simply reference a link to your own blogsite showing the challenge in a reply to this post. Well here goes! Please PICK TWO of the Women below and I will simply tally up the votes to see who I will write about before my next post. (keep in mind depending on how the voting goes one,both or none of your two picks may end up actually fighting)
Here are my sixteeen Badass Heroines in no particular order for you to choose from:
