Day 18 – Favourite protagonist.
Ooh, this is a tricky one. No one character immediately jumps out as absolute favourite so... contenders:
Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden. He has a talking skull for a friend, he animated a dinosaur skeleton and rode it into battle, he has an army of pizza loving faeries at his command and despite being surrounded by powerful enemies always manages to cludge together something to save the day. Except the leching over the nubile apprentice gets a tad squicky... so not a runaway win there.
Kate Elliott's Marit, from Shadow Gate (book 2 of the Crossroads trilogy)
Because being assassinated hasn't stopped her getting up and kicking ass. (Erm, does that count as a spoiler?)
Mirabel Stonefist from Elizabeth Moon's stories of the Ladies Aid & Armor Society (as found in assorted Chicks anthologies) - because she's a fun warrior lady.
Terry Pratchett's Granny Weatherwax (for all the reasons mentioned in the Favourite Character post)
Stephen Hunt's Amelia Harsh - a tomb raider done steampunk style! So soooo awesome!
