Ward de’Ath used to think that nothing could be more terrible than death. Now he realizes there are worse things. Like his never-ending hunger for blood. Even if he conquers the unbearable cravings that drive him headlong toward destruction, he’s a wanted man with a bleak future. 

Assassin Celia Carlyle learns she is the only one who can protect Ward from disaster. She loves him–she wants to help him, but no one can tell her how to save him from himself. And the confusing voices in her head scream to let him go. 

But Ward's dark trials keep mounting. A malevolent evil is rising in the land, threatening to unleash horror upon the world. The only way Ward can defeat it, and have the chance to marry Celia, is by accepting his fate and becoming the one thing he swore he would never become...

Hi, I’m Melanie Card. I love writing all different kinds of characters—each story requires different types of heroes and heroines—but one of my weaknesses is strong, confident—perhaps a little deadly—heroines. Celia Carlyle, the heroine in my Chronicles of a Reluctant Necromancer series, is one of these women. She’s dangerous, skilled in martial arts, willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done, and quite happy to take charge of every situation.

To celebrate the fourth and final book in the Chronicles of a Reluctant Necromancer series, WARD AGAINST DESTRUCTION, I’m sharing my top five favorite, kick-butt alpha heroines in books, movies, and TV shows… in no particular order.

1) Buffy from the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer

2) Katsa from Graceling by Kristin Cashore

3) Two from the TV show Dark Matter

4) Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

5) Dutch from the TV show Killjoys

There are so many other strong woman in fiction, TV, and the movies. Who’s your favorite alpha heroine?

I have always been drawn to story telling. In fact, I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t telling a story in my head or on paper. In grade school, we had journal writing time which I turned into story telling time, weaving tales of magic and adventure that mimicked the fairy tales and myths that I loved to read. It was there, with the help of two very special teachers, that I nurtured this love and started my journey as a writer.

I write fantasy, paranormal romance, and everything in between, seasoned with a good dash of adventure and mystery. Join me on my tales of magic, adventure, and romance.
