More people should appreciate Tamora Pierce’s Circle of Magic series.
It has three female leads and the fourth is a male who is romantically interested in NONE OF THE GIRLS.
Adult female role models abound.
The only romantic subplot in the series is not shoehorned in for the sake of a happy ending AND is unconventional.
And, best of all, it has Trisana Chandler, one of my favorite characters of all time.
