Harry and Hermione.

They both ended up with someone close (Ginny and Ron).

Yeah, but not with each other. That's the point I was trying to make, although it may not have been the best example.

I have not, but I think I may just have to now...

I knew that Deryn and Alek were going to get together from the moment they were introduced. No teen novel yet has managed to introduce a male and female protagonist who HAVEN'T ended up in a relationship.
Yeah that bothers  me.

I present my counterargument, although I'm not sure if anyone else has read these.

I have read the first one, but it has been a few years. I gotta ask, since it is in a similar age range, have you read the Edge Chronicles?

It is pretty good, with some of my favorite illustrations apart from Keith Thompson's. Weirdly, I enjoyed it better rereading it at age 16 then I did at around 11, it's intended age range.
