‘Go together like a horse and carriage..’
Every Tuesday over at the The Broke and Bookish we all get to look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) examples to demonstrate that particular topic. The topic this week is a rewind – I’m not sure that I took part on this one when it was originally scheduled so I’ve plumped for it now:
Top Ten Dynamic Duos
- Prince Jalan Kenneth and Snorri ver Snagason – what a great duo – The Red Queen’s War by Mark Lawrence is a fantastic reading experience – I really can’t do it enough justice or impress upon you how much you need to read it – although I will try. And Jalan and Snorri are undoubtedly one of the reasons why.
- Locke Lamotra and Jean Tannen – these two are definitely on my favourite list for duos – I absolutely adore the character Jean Tannen so this was a must. The Gentleman Bastard series by Scott Lynch
- Hwa and Daniel Siofra from Madeline Ashby’s Company Town – this is a brilliant book which I absolutely loved and the friendship/relationship between Hwa and Daniel is just amazing.
- Hope and Red – I’ve only just read this book and posted my review but these two are great characters to read and really made this story for me.
- Paul Tsabo and Valentine from the ‘Mancer series by Ferrett Steinmetz. This is such an entertaining series that I love. Paul and Valentine are both ‘mancers and they make a great combination. I think Valentine has to be one of my all time favourite characters to be honest – I love the elements of fun that she brings to the story.
- Blackthorn and Grim from the Blackthorn and Grim series by Juliet Marillier – I’ve only read the first book in the series – Dreamer’s Pool – which was fantastic. These two characters are a great, prickly, double act.
- Dug and Lowa from Angus Watson’s Age of Iron – I loved this story and really need to catch up!
- Shara and Sigrud (who makes the most unlikely secretary ever. Shara is the brains and Sigrud the brawn and when they’re together they’re almost invincible. Robert Bennett’s City of Stairs
- Fort and Suzume from M L Brennan’s Generation V – A vampire and a Kitsune – what could possible go wrong!
- Merry and Pippin – I couldn’t help it, I just had to get Lord of the Rings on here and I prefer these two hobbits on balance to Sam and Frodo as they bring more fun to the story.
So, do you have a favourite duo?
