Illiom, Daughter of Prophecy is set in a world where women and men are pretty equal. The book doesn’t explain why or how, but women soldiers and guards are just as common as men. The book centers around 7 “Chosen” people of prophecy, and four of them are women. There’s also a female captain of the guard in charge of protecting their group. The female characters are very well-rounded, just as much as the men. This book is really very feminist without being preachy – it just takes for granted that women are equal!
