Step-In Fathers In YA Books

  • Sirius for Harry in Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
  • Carlile for Edward in Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer
  • Jim for Evie in Premonition Series by Amy A. Bartol
  • Maxim for Kell in Shades of Magic Series by V.E. Schwab
  • Callum for Ella in Royals Series by Erin Watt
  • Vaughn for Rhine in Chemical Garden Series by Lauren DeStefano
  • Kadam for Ren and Kishan in Tiger Saga by Colleen Houck
  • Vasile for pack in Grey Wolves Series by Quinn Loftis
  • Nate for Sara in Relentless Series by Karen Lynch
  • Stephen for Quinn in Dusk Gate Chronicles by Breeana Puttroff

Let’s face it. Dads in YA are about as frequent as moms (TTT: Dead Moms in YA Book). However, I took a different turn for this Top Ten Tuesday. While this post has an undercurrent of Dead Dads in YA Books…I wanted to honor the father figures, whether they be step-fathers, father-in-laws, or male guardians.

The step-in fathers in this list are not all good or bad. Vaughn is a horrible father-in-law. Some, like Stephen and Vasile, are kings and care for all under their jurisdiction. Callum and Maxim are guardians and make mistakes where their charges are concerned. Jim, Nate, Sirius, Kadam, and Carlisle are all amazing father-figures, no matter their status and relation.
