Five SFF books with broody male characters

Brigid Kemmerer is the New York Times bestselling author of dark and alluring Young Adult novels.

A full time writer, Kemmerer lives in the Baltimore area with her husband, her boys, her dog, and her cat. When she’s not writing or being a mommy, you can usually find her with her hands wrapped around a barbell.

The latest title in her Cursebreaker series is A Vow So Bold and Deadly.

At Tor.com Kemmerer tagged five of her favorite sci-fi & fantasy novels with broody male characters. One title on the list:
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

They just do not come more broody than Cardan! He’s a spoiled young prince who has zero you-know-whats to give. The book is told from the point of view of Jude, a young mortal woman trapped in the faerie realm, and she’s an incredibly morally complex character herself. But I loved Cardan from the moment I met him, and Holly Black is a master of making her readers love the most unlikeable protagonists.
