Lauren No, and I was really pleased by this. The kids were so young, it would have felt out of place.
Princess Emma The book is weird and they are to young for romance
eweFace The authors said it would have.
And since I read The Copper Gauntlet I'm pretty sure there will be in book 3.
Though romance really isn't suited for this book, it's not that coming-of-age type of book, it's a creepy one lol.
Lolo it would have been weird
Lara Lightwood pretty sure they are still too young for romance... may be in book 4 or 5.

This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)
Tristan The first three books have little to no romance, although the last two do definitely have romance aspects in them.
Dylan No this book has no romanace in it
Nick It starts later on in the series, heavily affecting the end of book 3
AlinaTheCacti No, but there is one in book 2
Jelly We'll see on the next books. They're still too young in here, like 12 yrs old.
Charlotte I think that Tamara has a small crush on Call. But Celia might have one on Call too.
Kellie Warrior not yet… but give it time :/
Jaid A tiny bit.... But only about 'liking' other people. That only happened once in the book. So, not really, there isn't much romance.
Laura Ohh ok, I thought that the characters were teenagers. I didn't know that this was a middle grade novel.
