3 New Books About Unusual Women Warriors
Who doesn’t love a good fight? (Or, at least, reading about one?) Especially when it stars some kickass women? The new novels in this week’s book club take us from ancient Greece to an apocalyptic future, giving us a princess who would rather lead on the battlefield, a reluctant queen who becomes a trophy of war only to guide her fellow women toward survival, and six diversely badass ladies who won’t let a little inconvenient metamorphosis stop them from averting the end of the world. They show a wide range of what it means to be a warrior, reminding us that there’s a difference between a strong female character and a Strong Female Character — these women’s strengths aren’t just limited to kicking and punching.
