Barlow and Count Volger: The reason I put these two together is because they have so much in common. They are both dead clever. I'm talking like they could be spies or I can imagine them as kingsmen or something like that. Nonetheless, they're still engaging characters and very hard not to like or at least appreciate. Romance: The romance in the series is between the two main characters, Deryn and Alek.
One thing I love about this series is it isn't one of those corny "love at at first sight" stories.

Of course Alek didn't fall in love with Deryn until after he found out she was a girl, but Deryn didn't love Alek when she first met him. It isn't until after Deryn meets Alek and learns about him and his parents does she start to like him. Unfortunately, this meant that Deryn didn't want to tell Alek that she wasn't a boy because she was worried he would fall in love with her and that couldn't happen seeing as how Alek was heir to the throne and she was a commoner.
Therefore, not wanting to jeopardize their friendship, Deryn keeps her secret from Alek. After Alek learns Deryn is a girl, they avoid each other for a while but, after a bit they make up and become even closer as friends.
When Alek makes Deryn promise to hold no more secrets Deryn kisses Alek and not so long after that Alek begins to question how he really feels about Deryn. At the end of the series, Alek proclaims his love for Deryn and they kiss. Order this book! Select a Retailer Amazon. Also available on eBook.
