Book/Series: House of Night by PC and Kristin Cast
Species: Blue fledgling
Why I love her: Zoey Redbird is a character I love because I feel like she’s portrayed like a normal teenager who fucks up all the time and has to learn things the hard way. And she has issues prioritizing. One minute she’ll be worried about a life and death situation and the next she’s thinking about her boyfriend. Not every teenager is that way, but some are. Also, she controls all five elements (air, fire, water, earth, and spirit) and it’s pretty bad ass how she uses them to fight and heal and such. She’s thrown into a hot mess of a situation where she has no idea what the hell she’s doing and even though she doesn’t always get things right the first time, she doesn’t let her mistakes stop her from doing what she thinks is right. A lot of the characters in this series can seem really one-dimensional but she isn’t. I do think she lacks a bit of character development in the last few books but I can definitely see some change in her from book to book early on in the series. Zoey Redbird is my #WCW.
