Today’s Why I Love Wednesdays “instructions” were to pick any previous topic. So, here’s Favorite Character: Take Two. (You can find my first Favorite Character post here.)
I know I did a favorite character post recently. However, as those were my favorite characters from epic fantasy, today I’ll introduce you to my favorite YA character: Chloe Saunders from The Darkest Powers trilogy by Kelley Armstrong.
Chloe’s a fifteen-year-old necromancer, but people think she’s crazy when she starts screaming about ghosts. Her family puts her in a “group home” for troubled teens, which turns out to be a home for supernaturals.
I won’t go into too many details because I don’t want to spoil the story, but I appreciate how Chloe stays strong through everything and does everything she can to discover who (and what) she really is and the truth behind the “home” she’s been left in. She doesn’t give up, even though some scary things happen to her, and she doesn’t cower behind the boys and let them handle things for her. She’s a very believable character and I hope to see a continuation of her story someday.
