In the action-packed sequel to Rebel Wing, Aris battles for life and love . . . and not everyone will survive.

Aris Haan gave up everything to join the Atalantan Military: her family, her boyfriend, even her identity. In the end, though, it didn’t matter that she was a war hero. When the all-male Military discovered that she was actually a woman, she was sent home and erased from history.

Now she has a chance to go back to the battlefield—as herself. But as hard as it was to be a soldier in disguise, it’s even more difficult now. The men in her unit undermine her at every turn. The Safaran army has spies everywhere, perhaps even on Aris’s stationpoint. And she’s falling for her mysterious superior officer, Milek. But their relationship is forbidden, just stolen moments between training sessions and missions. There’s no room for love in war.

Then Aris discovers that Safara’s leaders have set their sights on her, Atalanta’s hero. And she must find them before they find her . .

In my Rebel Wing series, the main character, Aris, is what I’d consider a strong female character. In fact, there are a LOT of strong women in the books. But Aris isn’t aware of her own strength at the beginning of the first book. She has to find her way. I think there are a lot of different ways a character can be strong, whether it be physically, like Katniss, or through sacrifice, like Beauty in the story of Beauty and the Beast – she takes her father’s place, willingly, even though she thinks the beast is going to kill her! And then you have those characters who don’t start strong, but grow and change as the book goes along.

Here’s a list of my favorite strong female characters. They’re not necessarily the “typical” go-to’s, but I think that if you like reading about strong women, you’ll enjoy these books!

Her quiet childhood led to a reading addiction, writing obsession, and several serious book boyfriends.

One woman stuck in a house full of boys, I immerse myself in books and save my sanity by reading, writing and blogging. I'll read just about anything, from any genre, and LOVE supporting Indie authors. <3

    I have a few favorite strong female characters and I find that the trait they all have in common is their ability to speak their minds and stand up for themselves no matter the person or situation.

    • Lindsay Galloway

      I need to start channeling these characters in my everyday life 😛

      • Victoria

        Haha don’t we all.. but I know that I tend to lean towards characters who are like me but I’ve definitely learned to like those that are the complete opposite 🙂

        • Lindsay Galloway

          I’m so shy and unaggressive that it’s pretty easy to find characters that are my exact opposite. It allows me to channel a little inner rage 😉

          • Victoria

            inner that.. I’m far too outspoken and in your face that I should probably learn to embrace shy LOL

          • Lindsay Galloway

            Shy is overrated LOL

  • BerkeleyHapa

    I would say Mercedes Thompson from Patricia Briggs (last book Night Broken) and Toby Daye from Seanan McGuire’s wonderful series (last book Winter Long).

    • Lindsay Galloway

      I haven’t read any Patricia Briggs books yet… *adds to TBR*

  • marypreston

    Right now it is Hermione Granger from HARRY POTTER.

    • Lindsay Galloway

      Good choice! She’s so often overlooked because she isn’t as physically strong as Katniss or Tris.

  • Lori F

    Katniss Everdeen. Both books sound great. They are on my TBR list. Blessings & Thanks to All.

  • amy bowens

    I would have to say Katniss Everdeen. She is one strong young female
