Favorite Female Character.
This one is slightly easier than the male character category because for some reason, most female characters in books these days deserve a swift punch to the throat. I'm so incredibly over the recent rash of female characters being wishy-washy, completely lacking of self-confidence and dependent on a man for their happiness. Where did all of the kick-ass chick leads go?
A couple of my favs are Cat Crawford and Perry Palamino.
Cat because she's just kickass and Perry because she's Perry.
