Jennifer, also called JJ by her friends, is the protagonist of the YA fantasy novel Dragon Amour by Robin Ambrozic. When her best friend's cousin turns up, JJ's life changes in many ways. First, her heart finally starts to feel what love is, but then there are also some problems - like finding out her best friend's family's secret. There is more to them than meets the eye, and soon JJ finds herself in an age-old feud. She must make a decision about what to do with the feelings in her heart - and also find out how to keep herself safe. While a certain boy wants to protect her, he might not quite have the strength he needs. Will love be strong enough to overcome deadly dangers?
I have to admit that I picked up Dragon Amour by Robin Ambrozic because I mistakenly read it as Dragon Armour and expected some sort of Oriental-American mix of fantasy and paranormal action. That's not quite what the book is, but I wasn't disappointed either way. It's clearly a book that is very enjoyable - if I hadn't liked the plot and the characters, I wouldn't have continued reading. The book is aimed at teenagers and young adults, but even as someone in her thirties, I felt the characters were fun and I could relate to some aspects of their lives. I really liked JJ's father, he seemed like a great guy and it must be nice to have a father like him around. I can't quite explain why, but the writing draws you in. It's hard to stop reading once you start. It's got a pleasant pace, entertaining, with some really funny parts, but also exciting, with some moments that make you shiver. It's absolutely lovely. I felt like I could relax with this book, forget about real life for a while, and just spend time with some interesting characters.
