I, on the other hand, do not agree with drunky.

Has anyone read the Lionness Rampant series by Tamora Pierce?

Allana is a female.
She is a hero.

Great teaser though!!

The original Hero was female! Her lover Leander would swim across to her every night, and back before dawn. She would show a light to guide him.
