30 Days of Books - Day 22

Favorite non-sexual relationship (including asexual romantic relationships)

Kiriel's copy of Anita Blake: The First Death by Laurell K. Hamilton

Hands down, My favorite platonic relationship is between Anita and Edward in Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter novels. Earlier this month, I blogged about Anita as My favorite female character in a novel. Edward is one of Anita's best friends and one of the people who taught Anita to kick ass as well as she does.

Edward is ex-special forces turned hit man. But he doesn't take contracts on humans anymore. Edward only hunts lycanthropes and vampires because killing humans got too easy. In Laurell K. Hamilton's mythology, vampires like to give nicknames. It's a sign of respect. Anita is "The Executioner" because she's killed more vampires than anyone...except Edward. The vampires call Edward "Death."

Do you have a favorite friendship in a novel? Comment and tell Me the name of the novel or series and who the characters are.
