Five Favorites in Fantasy: Boy/Girl Friendships

Janir and Karile’s relationship was actually modeled on my brother and I, who were best friends growing up and are still very close. Probably in large part to this, I absolutely LOVE sweet brother/sister relationships in books as well as boy/girl friendships.

1. Sunny and Tuck from TheWitches’ Sleep by Kaitlyn Deann

Kaitlyn Deann knows how to write characters you love. I adored Sunny and Tucks and their mutually protective relationship made them even more so.

2. Sora and Dorian from Sora’s Quest by T.L. Shreffler

I think some people shipped this, but I didn’t. Dorian and Sora did, however, have some of the wittiest and funniest dialogue I’d read in awhile. A+

3. Branwen and Rhodri from Warrior Princess by Frewin Jones

I’m really glad the author decided not to make this a romantic relationship, because it looked like it was headed that way for awhile. But you’ve got to love two characters who would do anything for each other because they’re good friends—not  because of some unrequited love thing.

4. Kaliel and Pux from Surrender by Rhiannon Paille

These two were just so cute! Seriously, there is nothing to hate. They are both little dandelion floofs of cuddliness and to hate them requires the removal of one’s soul.

5. Harry Potter and Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
Anyone who watched the movies will understand, never mind reading the books. Luna and Harry’s strictly “just friends” policy was carried off wonderfully and here’s another beautiful example of platonic loyalty. Good old JK!

thekeyofamatahns_LARGE In a land where those with magic are esteemed and revered, Janir guards a secret that would send her to the headsman's block at a word. As one of the reviled Argetallams, she has the power to destroy enchantments and steal others' magic—an ability that has caused bloodshed for generations.

Raised as the illegitimate daughter of an influential lord, she was determined to turn her back on her heritage, but when her power manifests, leaving a nobleman dead, she has no choice but to flee her adoptive home. In exile with the help of a fearless young enchanter and an elf sworn to protect her, she finds herself entangled in a quest to hide an ancient artifact from the kingdom’s enemies.

But they are not the only ones after the relic and soon their paths cross with a rival from Janir's distant childhood. With no hope of help or rescue, the fate of nations will depend on a fifteen year old girl and her mastery of powers she doesn't understand.

  1. Oh yea. I so agree with that list especially the Harry/ Luna friendship. I just loved their relationship in the books and on screen.

    If any of these live up to the H.P. series then I definitely have to read them. ;)
    Fun guest post!

  3. I haven't heard about any of the books mentioned except for Harry Potter. Guess I have some new books to check out ;)

  4. Jenny Says:

    I've only read Harry Potter on that list. FAIL! I love a good boy/girl friendship though, so I'm definitely going to have to check some of the others out. I'm a huge sucker for witty dialogue, so Dorian and Sora sound right up my alley:)
