Favourite Fantasy Trope: Surprise Powers
From Mare Barrow to Alina Starkov, the surprise revelation that the protagonist has epic magic powers is a classic element of YA. And who wouldn’t want to find out they have super cool powers?
Favourite Fantasy Power: Elemental Control
So, you want powers. But more than that, you want to be able to control the elements. Why wouldn’t you? With water, fire, earth, and air on your side you can pretty much use your magic powers to do whatever you want.
Use your powers for Good or Evil?: Neutral
Almost half of you said that you would use your powers for neither god nor evil, opting to stay Swiss in any fight between the two. We applaud you, but frankly, what are you even using your powers for if you stay neutral?
Favourite Fantasy World To Live In: The Grishaverse
From Kaz to Alina and beyond, Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse is home to some of our favourite characters so it’s no wonder we all want to pack up and move there. Just watch out for all the dark deeds going on ...
Favourite Fantasy Heroine: Karou (Daughter Of Smoke and Bone)
The art obsessed, blue-haired Karou from Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone is your favourite kickass fantasy heroine. With magic powers and epic martial arts skills, we all want Karou to be our new best friend.
And there you have it, all your awesome fantasy faves. If you have any fantasy faves that aren’t on this list, tell us all about them on Twitter @dateabook.
