Well, the reds and pinks have faded from the stores only to be replaced with pastel colors of spring. But we have one more favorite couples post before we can finish out this series.
We’ve had our Favorite Almost Couples, Sci-Fi, On Screen, and now Fantasy. I was going to divide this post in two to feature young adult couples separately, but it’s been awhile since I’ve read Young Adult. Besides, I’m sure many of you have heard enough on Ron and Hermonie. Ha!
So without further ado:
My favorite couples in fantasy.
The Chronicler and Lady Leta
He’s a cripple with a dangerous secret who spends most of his time in the shadows of the library. She’s betrothed to Earl Alistair, the heir to his uncle and possible future king of the North. She struggles between doing what is the practical, duty-driven role she is supposed to assume and her desires. You know, impractical stuff like learning to read and thinking for herself. Which is where The Chronicler comes in. A Beautiful story filled with love, sacrifice, adventure, and the fantastic.
Kiana and Skaric
She’s a goddess reincarnated and can’t ever leave her tower for her own safety. That is until the Wolves, who seek her death, blast it apart. In her escape, she heals one of them. Skaric. Now a disgrace to his own people and better off dead, he is on the run with Kiana, who seeks an end to the war between her people and her enemies. Such a sweet love story of redemption and forgiveness.
Siri and Susebron
A second-born princess, Siri does not have to worry about court etiquette, nor the marriage-alliance between her nation and their enemies. That’s her older sister’s duty. But when her father decides to send her instead, Siri must learn quickly about politics, etiquette, and who to trust. She does her best to fulfil her role as bride to the foreboding god-king and to maintain peace. The god-king. Susebron. He is powerful and threatening and scary! But he is not what you think. The story is a mix of political intrigue among minor gods and humans, figuring out who is the real villain with characters jumping off the page and a talking sword. What an adventure! But Siri and Susebron–a beautiful love story indeed.
So what say you? Who are your favorite fantasy couples?
