Couple Number two is Alan and Sin from The Demon's Surrender by Sarah Rees Brennan. Last year Alan and Nick were my couple number two - they started the whole it doesn't have to be a romantic couple thing. I ended that post by saying I hoped Alan would make the list again with a different partner. I'm delighted that Sarah Rees Brennan didn't let me down - it's clear Alan and Sin were meant for each other, even if neither of them thinks so.
In fact they don't care much for each other at all and I never gave a thought to them ending up together (I had Alan paired with someone else) until near the end of The Demon's Covenant when Alan thinks something like "well I couldn't care less what Cynthia Davis thinks." Which we all know is code for I quite fancy Cynthia Davis and care very much what she thinks, although I'm not about it admit it, even to myself!
So I was rooting for them from the start and intrigued at how they were going to get together. The answer would be in a very rocky, but absolutely fabulous way. They had me giggling and swooning. Together these two are dynamite and I just love them to bits. Writing this just makes me want to go read the whole trilogy again - which actually sounds like a great start to 2012.
Apologies for the lack of quotes, but my copy is in the bookcase behind the Christmas Tree and I dare not try and find it. Angie wrote a wonderful post about why she loves Alan and Sin and included two of my favourite quotes.
