I was trying to think of a fun post for today and I came up with this!
Seeing as I missed this week’s TTT which was all about your favourite heroines, I thought I’d share some of my favourite characters with you today.
Why not join in and do your own name (link me if you do)!
Laureth Peak (She is Not Invisible ~ Marcus Sedgwick): Laureth Peak thinks her father’s on the verge of a breakdown. He’s supposed to be doing research in Austria, so when his notebook shows up in New York, Laureth knows something is wrong. On impulse she steals her mother’s credit card and heads for the States, taking her strange little brother Benjamin with her. Reunited with the notebook, they begin to follow clues inside, trying to find their wayward father. Ahead lie challenges and threats, all of which are that much tougher for Laureth than they would be for any other 16-year old. Because Laureth Peak is blind.
Iseult (Tristan & Iseult ~ Various): Isuelt is the name of several characters in the Arthurian story of Tristan and Iseult. The most prominent is Iseult of Ireland, wife of Mark of Cornwall and adulterous lover of Sir Tristan. Her mother, the Queen of Ireland, is also named Iseult. The third is Iseult of the White Hands, the daughter of Hoel of Brittany, sister of Sir Kahedin, and eventual wife of Tristan.
Peter Pan (J.M Barrie): A mischievous boy who can fly and never grows up, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood having adventures on the small island of Neverland as the leader of his gang, the Lost Boys, interacting with mermaids, Native Americans, fairies, pirates, and occasionally ordinary children from the world outside Neverland.
Sarah Williams (Labyrinth ~ A.C.H Smith): 15 year old Sarah is on a quest to reach the castle at center of an enormous otherworldly maze, beyond the goblin city, to rescue her infant brother Toby, who has been kidnapped by Jareth, the Goblin King.
Yvaine (Stardust ~ Neil Gaiman): The fallen star. In Neil Gaiman’s Stardust, stars are living creatures. Yvaine appears to be immortal, but not invulnerable. She is pursued by the Lilim and the surviving sons of the Lord of Stormhold, who want her for their own reasons. When Tristran realises his love for her, he abandons his courtship of Victoria Forester, and Yvaine marries him despite their inability to interbreed.
