Throwback Thursday (2): Kick Ass Chicks

The realm of kick ass chicks is one we all have visited once or twice, but there are still so much more options out there. So many kick ass chicks waiting to be found, so many stories left to be read..

In this post, every Thursday, I showcase TWO titles of my own choosing. One will be a title I read, one will be a title that is currently seating on my TBR pile collecting e-dust. Every week I will have a different theme to this post, like for example today's showcase is about 2010 YA titles. Mind you, after a while the themes might just repeat, but who cares as long as the titles stay fresh?

Prophecy (The Dragon King Chronicles, #1)

by Ellen Oh
Goodreads Rating: 3.43
Published January 13th, 2013, by HarperTeen

The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms... is a girl with yellow eyes.

Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope...

Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.

Intrigue and mystery, ancient lore and action-packed fantasy come together in this heart-stopping first book in a trilogy.

Why I STILL want to read this title: We all need warrior women in our lives. I've read a lot of reviews by friends as well

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)

Grave Mercy
by Robin LaFevers
Goodreads Rating: 3.96
Published April 3rd 2012 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?

Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.

Ismae’s most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?

I read it, and I might even read it again: This book was AWESOME. And the sequels are JUST as good. Ismae is the kind of kick ass chick that stays with you, and Robin LaFevers is a fantastic writer. Cannot wait for Mortal Heart

Anyways, I hope I brushed off some dust from some of your titles that are in TBR status. Hopefully I made you remember of those that fell through the cracks, and if anything made you aware of some oldies that are still very much relevant and dying to be read. If you have any suggestions, recommendations, please leave them in the comments!
