Most Attractive Female Heroines in YA and NA

Advertisements

Because I’m a little bit boy crazy, I’ve dedicated this blog many times for the amazing heroes in YA and NA, but I rarely commented on females. Almost all female characters in YA and NA have at least above average appearance, but in the list below I’m including books where the females actually have legit stunning beauty, and their appearances have been emphasized and noted by many throughout the book.

1. Lucia Damora, Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes

Get on Amazon

War brought them together. Love will tear them apart.

Princess Cleo of Mytica confronts violence for the first time in her life when a shocking murder sets her kingdom on a path to collapse. Once a privileged royal, Cleo must now summon the strength to survive in this new world and fight for her rightful place as Queen.

The King of Limeros’s son, Magnus, must plan each footstep with shrewd, sharp guile if he is to earn his powerful father’s trust, while his sister, Lucia, discovers a terrifying secret about her heritage that will change everything.

Rebellious Jonas lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.

Witches, if found, are put to death, and Watchers, immortal beings who take the shape of hawks to visit the human world, have been almost entirely forgotten. A vicious power struggle quickly escalates to war, and these four young people collide against each other and the rise of elementia, the magic that can topple kingdoms and crown a ruler in the same day.

Lucia. She is one of, if not the most beautiful female character I’ve ever seen (or read). And the fan art captured her beauty perfectly (shout out to you, whoever you are. You’re amazing). Her beauty got almost all the guys she came across in the book to fall for her, like Jonas, Alexius, and her even her adopted brother Magnus.

Rebellious Jonas lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.

A vicious power struggle quickly escalates to war, and these four young people collide against each other and the rise of elementia, the magic that can topple kingdoms and crown a ruler in the same day.

Yup, Falling Kingdoms again. This shouldn’t be surprising because we all know how princesses in books are always beautiful, especially in high fantasy books like this. Celoina is probably the only person whose beauty is even close to going up against Lucia’s. Unlike Lucia’s dark beauty, with her blue eyes and golden, almost platinum blonde hair she is more of an ice queen beauty. She is also described to be even more beautiful than her elder sister, Emilia. Like Lucia, her unbelievable beauty has literally got every single guy she came across to fall for her. And just a note: this fan art is amazing, but although in certain light her hair can be platinum, her hair is more golden blonde.

3. Juliette Ferrars, Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Get on Amazon

One touch is all it takes. One touch, and Juliette Ferrars can leave a fully grown man gasping for air. One touch, and she can kill.

No one knows why Juliette has such incredible power. It feels like a curse, a burden that one person alone could never bear. But The Reestablishment sees it as a gift, sees her as an opportunity. An opportunity for a deadly weapon.

Juliette has never fought for herself before. But when she’s reunited with the one person who ever cared about her, she finds a strength she never knew she had.

Speaking of this book, this book is pretty unique for its genre. Dystopian rarely have characters whose beauty is greatly highlighted and deemed as ‘beautiful’. Juliette Ferrars was described as ‘hauntingly beautiful’. Her beauty cannot be denied by anyone in the book, even the main antagonist, the Supreme Commander Anderson. Due to being locked up in an asylum for three years, she was extremely oblivious to the fact in the first half of the series, and was always dismissing these remarks. Warner on her appearance and her cluelessness on her appearance stated how ‘she does now know the effect she has on people’. (Such a shame she doesn’t have a decent fan art. I hope other fandoms can help out.)

4. Celaena Sardothien/ Aelin Galathynius, Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Get on Amazon

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes,18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a newroyal assassin

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilarating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her … but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead … quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

Aelin is described as ‘particularly beautiful’, which is not surprising due to her Fae heritage (and being a princess). Besides from her eye catching golden blonde hair, She is most known for her eyes, which is bright turquoise with golden rings around the pupils. This eye color is iconic in the series because it’s the most notable proof of her heritage, and is a distinct trait that only runs in the Galathynius line, which proves her as the rightful princess and queen of Terrasen. Like Falling Kingdoms, the Throne of Glass fandom has some of the best artists (why is it always fantasy books that get the best artist? Not that I’m complaining). My absolute favorite illustrator is Charlie Bowater, who is known for her work on Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses coloring book. I discovered her work there, and I just have to say that it is just breathtaking, and I fell in love with all her work right here and there.

5. Renesmee Cullen, Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Get on Amazon

About three things I was absolutely positive.

First, Edward was a vampire.

Second, there was a part of him—and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be—that thirsted for my blood.

And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

Deeply seductive and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight is a love story with bite.

Renesmee’s immense beauty is not unexpected or a surprise. Born from one of the most beautiful human and a vampire, I would expect nothing less, would actually be more surprised if she’s not seriously beautiful.

6. Elain Arhceron, A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

Get on Amazon

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

The Archeron sisters in the series were known for their beautiful appearance in general. Nesta, being the lion, has the sharpest features (and personality), Feyre is in the middle, and Elain is the soft ‘lovely’ of the three. But because of her softer features that she sometimes was deemed as the most beautiful of the three.

7. Violetta Amouteru, The Young Elites by Marie Lu

Get on Amazon

I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

Although Adelina is beautiful, especially with her missing eye scar covered up, because of Violetta’s powers, she does not possess any mark from the fever and which obviously highlighted her absolute stunning beauty. Because of this, she is highly adored by his father as an investment, and is always sought by suitors. In a way, she reminds me of Elain.
