But their countries need an alliance to fight against an aggressive and brutal warlord, Fergox Spearthrower of Holt one of those in-between countries , and the marriage is needed, in the views of their rulers, to cement their alliance. Tashi, frightened, takes refuge in stiff formality; Ram gets wasted and does his best to put Tashi off with his rude and uncouth behavior.
Dragonfly a book is a fast-paced and fun ride, and Tashi and Ram both have nice character development arcs, and a squeaky-clean romance gradually develops between them.
Both have limitations in their worldviews and immaturities that they need to overcome. The villains of the story, Fergox and his sister, the Inkar Yellowtooth, are unmitigated villains, but do bring some personality to the tale. Published before the push for more racial and cultural sensitivity and inclusiveness in recent years, Dragonfly stumbles a little in that regard.
Combining that with a fair-haired population creates an odd feeling of disconnect, if not actual discomfort. Dragonfly is somewhat simplistic as far as characterization and writing style go. I think I would have adored this fantasy and light romance when I was about thirteen years old, but for older readers who prefer more complex YA fantasy, Dragonfly may fall a little flat. This was an impromptu buddy read with Nenia. Thanks for the invite!
Old enough to be their grandfather and they made me stand naked in the road, my things all unpacked in the mud! Tashi sends her love and returns your horse. Stringy hair? You know I was only saying what I had to say in front of him. She nodded, wondering what he was going to do.
