Book Blogger Hop

Friday's Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books.

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question is:

"Pick a character from a book you are currently reading or have just finished and tell us about him/her."

I recently read 'Familiar Origins' by B. Pine which has a lot of amazing and unforgettable cahracters in it. I guess if I have to pick one it has to be Galen. Galen is a child...I think she's 8 when the book starts...maybe 9. She lives with her mom and dad and is an amazing scout. She can travel through the woods with complete quiteness and be totally undetected! This little girl is fierce though. Her village is attacked by these horrible men and they just burn everything and kill everyone. Luckily Galen survives the attack and manages to get away. She has this magical ability that helps her. I don't want to spoil the book and give away too much though but I will say that she is one of the best characters (they all are) in the book. And the book itself is amazing. You can actually read a sample chapter for it on Goodreads! It's amazing!! : )

What was your character pick? Don't forget to leave your links! Happy hopping : )
