Win a copy of Mythica!

Recently the good folks at Arrowstorm Entertainment were kind enough to give me a sneak peek at their latest production, Mythica: A Quest for Heroes.  You can read my review of it here, and an interview with two of the stars here.

Short version: I found it very enjoyable, with a terrific main character (played with full-on commitment by Melanie Stone), and as the first film of a series, it sets things up nicely. Moreover, it offers two strong female characters (Stone and Nicola Posener) who drive the action and motivate the plot without devolving into cliche or romance.

Now Arrowstorm has slipped me five copies of Mythica to give away.  If I’ve piqued your interest, then just leave a comment below telling me about your favorite fantasy heroine for a chance to win one of these.  Deadline is Sunday, February 14 at midnight.

  1. Rebecca from Tank Girl! She always kept her cool with the bad guys, faced her suffering and torture with courage and humor, had great fashion sense in a post apocalyptic world.

  2. Dead heat tie between Jilly Coppercorn in DeLint’s Newford books and Eddi McCandrry from Emma Bull’s War for the Oaks. Special mention goes to Anita Blake(before she went hardcover) and Deety from Number of the Beast by Heinlein.

  3. It’s a tossup between Cimorene from the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, and Lessa from the Dragonriders of Pern series. Two of my earliest examples of heroines who rejected social shoehorning and forged their own paths.

  4. One?? You want just one??? No can do. I started with Eowyn because there just wasn’t much out there in the beginning, but more recently Aerin (Hero & the Crown), Beka Cooper (Tamora Pierce), Mercy Thompson (Patricia Briggs) and October Daye (Seanan McGuire). I’m undoubtably forgetting several, but haven’t got all my coffee on board yet.

  5. I know this will sound like pandering given your previous blog posts … Kate Beckinsale as Selene in Underworld.

  6. Bronwyn Hyatt. lol But seriously, great character. There are so many strong female characters out there. Xena is a good example of someone who wouldn’t take crap from anyone.

    I think I would have to pick Maya Greenwood right now. From Walking to Mercury and The Fifth Sacred Thing by Starhawk. Not truly fantasy, but definitely a magickal being.

  7. Polgara the Sorcerer for the Belgariad by David Eddings. This was my first epic fantasy series as a kid and led me to many more!

  8. Hmm, I also have to go with two. Alana the girl knight in Tamora Pierce’s works.
    Then Menolly of DragonSong by Anne McCaffery.
    Both find strength in being true to themselves, a lesson for all.

  9. I’ve always been partial to the Jirel of Joiry stories by C.L. Moore. First published in the mid-to-late ’30s in WEIRD TALES, they were the first modern sword-and-sorcery fantasies to feature a strong female character. They were influenced by Howard and Lovecraft, but had a more realistic touch along with a lyrical flair.

  10. I have to agree with a couple of the readers above – Polgara and Alanna and Menolly are all awesome women along with Bronwyn Hyatt and Mercy Thompson and October Daye , but my absolute favorite is from an early fantasy duo by Patricia Briggs called Ravens Strike and Ravens Shadow and her name is Seraph. LOVE her

  11. Based on frequency of rereads Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs holds the title. CE Murphy’s Jo & Grit are close, as are Laura Anne Gilman’s Wren & Bonnie.

  12. Harry from McKinley’s Blue Sword. I’ve worn out seven – SEVEN – copies of that book. I reread it at least once a year.

  13. I haven’t read any of these so this would be a new one for me but I would love to win a copy!

  14. Hi Alex ..
    I can never make up my mind about heroines .. but that really doesn’t matter does it ? anyway .. would love to win !
    Chris …

  15. That’s a tough question to answer. I love so many characters of both (and other) genders. I suppose my favorite female character from film would be Jennifer Connelly’s Sarah from Labyrinth.

    As too literature, it becomes even harder. I am a big fan of Bronwyn Hyatt, of course. But I think my favorite might be Raymond E Feist’s Gamina.
