Insurgent UK: Team Dauntless blog tour: Top 10 Characters I Believe Would Join Dauntless

As part of the amazing Team Dauntless UK’s faction blog tour I wanted to highlight some amazingly cool characters from other books that I think would belong to the Dauntless Faction… Let me know if you agree or not! 
***

1. Neville Longbottom – Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling

Remember that bit in the books where Neville is put into a full body binding curse and still doesn’t cry. Remember that bit where he stands up to his friends and tells them what they’re doing is wrong and they shouldn’t be sneaking out and they’ll get into trouble – the result being that he’s put into a full body binding curse AGAIN! Well these are just a couple of reasons why I honestly think Neville Longbottom would be Dauntless. 

2. Anya – All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin
Anya is full blown kick ass. I doubt very much that she’d have a problem jumping off tall buildings and things like that so long as its for a good cause – like her family or friends. She is brave because she has to be and doesn’t let her guard down for anything.
3. Riley Blackthorne – Demon Trappers by Jana Oliver
This girl kicks demons asses for a living…. she couldn’t be much more Dauntless!! 
4. Cammie Morgan – Gallagher Girls by Ally Carter
Cammie is girly and a bit boy obsessed at times but in all honesty, I think she’d be dauntless. Being dauntless is being brave and she is that. It also includes body modification and awesome accessories for disguise – which is well Cammie! 
5. Lis London – Hollow Pike by James Dawson
Lis went through a lot of crap, and a murder. Yet she still held her head up high.
6. Tali – Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Uglies is one of my favourite dystopians… it is right up there with Divergent and I love Tali for what she does, she actively jumps into danger and off tall buildings just like our friends do in Divergent.
7. Samwise Gamgee – Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien 
You don’t get much braver than Sam, he doesn’t have to travel with Frodo on the journey they take but he does it anyway and he sticks by him all the way.
8. Manchee – The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness 
I know Manchee is a dog, but who’s to say Dauntless team cant have their very own pet haha If Manchee was a person he would be strong and brave and look fear in the face rather than shy away from it. I know he’s a little silly in the book but I think that’s the dog in him, he’s still very brave!!
9. Suzume – Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott

This book was a Cinderella retelling but, my word, it is nothing like the original story! Suzume was the strongest character I have ever come across and incredibly brave. She witnesses murders and is a part of things she shouldn’t be yet she keeps on going because she is brave and she holds a strong connection to those she loves.
10. Isis White – Whit by Iain Banks 
This one is donated to this list by my sister. I haven’t read this book but from what my sister told me about it, I really need to. I have included the Amazon product description below so you can see why we think Isis would be Dauntless
“A little knowledge can be a very dangerous thing. Innocent in the ways of the world, an ingenue when it comes to pop and fashion, the Elect of God of a small but committed Stirlingshire religious cult: Isis Whit is no ordinary teenager. When her cousin Morag – Guest of Honour at the Luskentyrian’s four- yearly Festival of Love – disappears after renouncing her faith, Isis is marked out to venture among the Unsaved and bring the apostate back into the fold. But the road to Babylondon (as Sister Angela puts it) is a treacherous one, particularly when Isis discovers that Morag appears to have embraced the ways of the Unsaved with spectacular abandon. Truth and falsehood; kinship and betrayal; ‘herbal’ cigarettes and compact discs – Whit is an exploration of the techno-ridden barrenness of modern Britain from a unique perspective.”
