Catrin a good heroine?

Post by Jsovermyer » 11 Oct 2018, 21:58

Was Catrin a good heroine for the story? I thought that she was because she was willing to give up love to save her father. She didn't want to desert her countrymen even when they thought her a traitor. What did you think of her?

Catrin absolutely was a good heroine, a lot of reader criticise her for giving up Marcellus but heroes make hard choices and that was one she had to make.

In this novel, Catrin had to be brave, think quickly, and make hard decisions. She used her abilities to help those she loved, too. Seems like a good heroine to me!

Yes, In my opinion Catrin is definitely a good heroin of the story. This character has been well developed by the author.

I think Catrin is a great heroine. She’s well defined as a character and multi-dimensional. She’s flawed but tries to do the right thing. I love that the hero is a woman

Yes, I believe that giving up or making a sacrifice for what it is that you want or believe in will most of the time make that person at least someone that deserves a heroine type of respect.

I believe she was a great heroine. Sacrifices are the best quality of any heroine, and she did it perfectly.

I think she was a good heroine - I liked that she was a warrior and could take care of herself. She was definitely flawed.

I agree that Catrin was a good protagonist. She had conflicting interested concerning her loyalty to her family and her love for Marcellus. Throughout the story, she appeared to remain loyal to both factions, so long as they were in the right. This showed a strength of character of Catrin's part, as she did not let love nor family loyalty dictate her actions, but rather what she thought was the right thing to do.

Catrin was a good heroine. I like the concept of Catrin, at least. I liked that she both embraced her druid powers and was trained to use many weapons. I wish we were able to see more sides of her personality. For the majority of the book, Catrin seems very sure of herself. She never really panics. She's always calm and collected. I wanted to see more of scared Catrin, hesitant Catrin, lonely Catrin, joyful Catrin, hungry Catrin, etc.

I liked her. A pretty strong female heroine of the story. Except for the whole romance with Marcellus thing which wasn't well written.
