I'll introduce you to a new scifi/fantasy character from the plethora of novels I've read over my lifetime. My goal is to entice those who maybe haven't read much in the genre I write and share why I find these characters so interesting. I hope you'll enjoy taking the ride with me.
~L~ is for Liath from Kate Elliott's Crown of Stars Series
I read Kate Elliott's Crown of Stars epic series when I was in high school and loved it. I've always felt that it was seriously underrated. The world is very detailed and the characters have to struggle with situations that do not always have a happy resolution.
Liath is one of 2 main POVs that begin the first book of the series. Many people find her hard to relate to. I'm highlighting her because she seemed 'real' to me. If I were to put myself in her situation, experience what she does while knowing and in most cases not knowing what she does, I think I'd also be an uncomfortable person to know. She's just one big identity crisis. No sooner does she discover something about her past, she then discovers it's a lie, or a half-truth at best. She's smart, beautiful, and has powers she doesn't know how to control. Then on top of that she's enslaved and raped. I find her withdrawn character and inability to settle for a normal family life very believable even as I was frustrated with her for continuing to make the decisions that are believable for her character and experiences.
