What I'm into right now: I’m still recovering from the season finale of Game of Thrones.  There are so many things to love about the series and characters, but my favorite element is the strong women who know what they want and take it, including Arya, Daenerys, and, yes, even Cersei. To cope, here’s a list of other fantasy novels (some of which I’ll be diving into as I experience GoT withdrawal in the next year) that feature Westeros worthy heroines who wield knives, magic, and power.
