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.
