Feature and Follow • 5

 Feature and follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison can read as a great way to find new book blogs. 

This week's question: Fight! Fight! If you could have two fictional characters battle it out (preferably from books), who would they be and who do you think would win?

Oh what a question!  The first character that jumped to mind for me was Wren Elessedil (daughter of the legendary house Ohmsford - bearers of the Sword of Shanara), but I can't think of anyone I would pit her against.  Wren Elessedil is a character in Terry Brook's Elf Queen of Shanara, Book #3 in the Heritage of Shanara Series. She has the power of magic - she carries the magical elfstones, and she's a formidable warrior trained by rovers. Wren was the first female fantasy character that I fell in love with. She was strong, decisive, loyal and able to make the tough decisions.
My second favorite and the only reason she's second is because I came across her second is Polgara the Sorceress, daughter of the immortal Belgarath.  Polgara comes to us courtesy of David and Leigh Eddings. Polgara, sorceress of immeasurable power, shapeshifter, counsel keeper to the gods and their disciples, she was a force to be reckoned with and unapologetically so. 

I think I would safely pit both these women against any character in the literary world and they would sufficiently hold their own.

Happy reading folks!
