Dragonfly - Julia Golding I found this to be a fairly blunt and formulaic fantasy novel, with just average writing and character development. I read this because I'm sad about the trend away from high fantasy in YA (it's all urban-paranormal these days, which I quite enjoy, just not ALL THE TIME), and I guess it satisfied me a little on that level. I was hoping for more though.I was also a bit taken aback when the romance went from "maybe we might like each other" light flirting to "You know I'm in love with you, right?" with zero warning.
