Talking about strong young women in fiction and more specifically about archers and ESPECIALLY about individual and brave redheads it seems we’ve forgotten one of my favourite heroines of all time. Renn from “The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness” is not only a great archer but also a powerful mage. Go read the books by Michelle Paver who writes about a world around 4000 BC. They are one of the series that really deserve more attention but sadly was overshaded by the huge success of Harry Potter.
The Swedish cover art was painted by Alvaro Tapia (who also made the Swedish covers of Harry Potter).
