T5W: SFF Creatures

Top 5 Wednesday was originally created and run by Lainey aka gingerreadslainey (Youtube channel) but it is now being run by Sam aka Thoughts on tomes (Youtube channel). Each week there is a different topic. You can check out the groups Goodreads page here for any more information and the future topics. This week’s topic is your favourite SFF creatures and it is a Booktube SFF Awards crossover topic. Pretty self explanatory – I’ll be sharing my favourite creatures from fantasy and/or sci-fi books. Of course the first thing that comes to mind is dragons, but for the list I’ve tried to come up with other, maybe lesser known, creatures. Onto the list.


  • Wolven, speficially Storm, from the Faithful and the Fallen series / John Gywnne / intelligent wolf-like creatures who are bigger and stronger than wolves
  • The Royal Beast from the Beast Player / Nahoko Uehashi / large winged wolf-like creatures that are the symbol of royal power
  • Canim from the Codex Alera series / Jim Butcher / large wolf-like species who stand upright on their back feet
  • Kaas from the Ascension cycle / David Mealing / small dragon companion
  • Squirrel Cats from the Spellslinger series / Sebastien de Castell



That’s it for today. I’m sensing a pattern with my picks – clearly I’m a fan of wolf-like creatures :). What are your favourite creatures from fantasy or sci-fi books? I’d love to know your favourites. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
