Women in SFF: Lifetime Achievement Awards

The Fantasy Hive blog have an awesome Women in SFF feature, and July is the month for it! As part of this, there's a really fun photo challenge, and we're taking some of those to the next level! Today's prompt is 'Life-Time Achievement Award' (actually, it's yesterday's prompt, but life gets in the way). We decided to do something a little different for it, and we set five categories and nominated a book, author, or character each. Here are our final choices, but we'd love to hear what you think!

Review: King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

The people of Ravka don't know what Nikolai Lantsov endured in their bloody civil war and he intends to keep it that way. Yet each day a dark magic in him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. Zoya Nazyalensky has devoted her life to rebuilding the Grisha army. Despite their magical gifts, Zoya knows the Grisha cannot survive without Ravka as a place of sanctuary – and she will stop at nothing to help Nikolai secure the throne. Far north, Nina Zenik wages her own kind of war against the people who would see the Grisha destroyed. Burdened by grief and a terrifying power, Nina must face her past to have any hope of defeating the dangers that await her.
