I love it when one of my characters resonates with a reader.

Read what Melissa says here about Terelle, her favorite character in The Last Stormlord.

(I have to say that my favourite in the book was actually Ryka. I especially loved the proposal scene where Kaneth makes a total muck of things and Ryka just gets madder and madder…)

I do so love strong women, especially those who aren’t warriors. (Although I have done those too – Blaze from the Isles of Glory was most definitely a warrior who could match most men when it came to swordplay.)

The pix is Nashii, and while I didn’t have her looks in mind when I described what I thought Terelle would look like, this particular photo somehow catches an expression that is wholly Terelle at her most sceptical.

So who was your favourite character??


Terelle… — 7 Comments

  1. I have trouble picking a favourite, but if you'd asked me who the photo was of (from your books) I would have definitely said Terelle. That's just how I'd picture her!

  2. It's hard to pick a favourite with so many good characters to choose from.
    The character I want most to succeed and be free to choose her own future is Terelle.
    I also admire the intelligence, courage and survival skills of the feisty Ryka.

  3. My memory is going, but I rather like Jasper's (Shale) brother. I thought it was so sad that he felt so strongly about Ryka.

  4. I wrote him as rather an ambivalent character, Jo. A villain …and yet not. You are not the only one who likes him.

    I toyed a lot with exactly how his part on the story is going to end…

  5. Well I hope he has a happy ending, he deserves it. I haven't got the books right now so I cannot recall his name, just his character.

  6. I am running behind in reading all the posts from last week. But I saw your heading Terelle… and had to stop to see. Thank you for posting the link for my Favorite Fictional Character post.

    I have to mention this book had many great characters to love. I started with Terelle first. I can really see Terelle being lost in thought as she thinks and looking just like that photo.

    But Ryka is an amazing character as well. I have to agree the scene of the proposal was GREAT. I laughed and felt bad at the same time. Even in the end Ryka brought me to tears.

    Thank you for mentioning me. And hope you enjoyed the post. 🙂
