R is for Raisa ana'Mariana

Also known as Rebecca Morley, Raisa isn't your ordinary princess. From Cinda Williams Chima's Seven Realms novels, Raisa is not one to do what she's told. Intelligent and stubborn, she's willing to work hard. Her ill-temper is matched with a kind heart...all the makings of a great queen.


"I need to go to parties so I don't think so much."

Do you like Raisa? Tell me some of your favorite "R" characters.

Ill temper matched with a kind heart might just make her actions forgivable. I haven't read the book, but it sounds intriguing.

Raisav sounds like a cool princess. My R character today is Ron Weasley from Harry Potter. While he might not be the best at magic, he never gives up trying and proved his mettle in the last book (and two movies). Hermione refereed to his ideas/actions as brilliant several times. A real achievement.

I've never read the book.
Reepicheep from the Narnia series comes to mind. Sorry, too early to think of anyone else...

Oh, I don't know this one! I haven't heard of this book or character before.

One of my fav "R"s is Raven from the Vampire Kisses books. She is so young but so self-confident and sure of herself, I love her.

Have not read this. I always love hat headed characters, they can be so volatile.

I love Rustico in the tenth story of the third day of The Decameron. It's my favoritest of the 100 stories, and is famous for being probably the book's raunchiest story.

Oo, oo, I have a favorite "R" character! Rena Collins from Strength.

What? Don't judge me. LOL

Yes! I adore Cinda Williams Chima. All of her characters are incredible, but Raisa is my favorite.

Raisa is such a dynamic character. The perfect match to Han. I love them both so much, I was sad to see the series end...though happy for the ending they got. :-)
