Officially started reading the book last night. Hola to all my turtle and rabbit buddies and thank you for joining in Hounded read-along.
Let's start your engines and read, set gooooooo in turtle speed :)
Kevin Hearne had the most perfect beginning for this book: "There are many perks to living for twenty-one centuries, and formost among them is bearing witness to the rare birth of genius." If you were to live for centuries what do you think you would be excited to see?
Scratches head... time machine I guess? Yeah, that's probably the one and only thing which can will hold my attention the most, and it's very likely that I might end up hogging that thing for myself. So I can go back in time in case I missed meeting someone.
In the 2nd chapter we learn about the amulet and its protection powers! Do you think having met the Morrigan and heard about Aenghus Og that it will be enough to protect Atticus? I mean the Morrigan has a point about hot chicks coming after him and his defenses might be down! He is very male!
I highly doubt that. There won't be any story if he is all safe, right? I have not come to the part where 'he is very male' actually means here. Maybe when I go ahead and read further!
The literary world's coolest dog is introduced in this chapter! Did you love Oberon immediately? Show me a picture or describe the type of animal you would love to have as a talking companion! (Cat, Dog, Mouse, Sloth, Horse---what is your pick--pictures please)?
I will be honest, I did not feel anything for Oberon :( I am hoping that might change. I really do.
As for talking companions.. cat, definitely a cat. And has Antonio Banderas's voice :)
In this chapter Flidais asked Atticus what his name is and then precedes to ask if anyone actually believes he is Greek? He says nobody pays attention to names here. Do you know what your name means and where it comes from? Or do you have a name you wish had? Let's talk names!
My name, Jannat Ara Prangon means the land of heaven. It's a mixture Arabian and Bangla literature. It's a tongue tying name which only a few people can pronounce, and sadly I am not one of them.
Oh yes, I had hit a phase around the time when I was in 6th or 7th grade and I used to doodle my name as Aria. That has been an embarrassing experience, let's not go there O_o
We learn about Atticus' lawyers in this chapter, a rather unique combo! Without jumping ahead, would you hire a lawyer combination of two supernaturals who on the surface would appear to be natural enemies or at the very least two very Alpha attitudes? What would be the positives and negatives of that decision.
Most definitely. A duo of werewolf and a vampire as lawyers by my side any legal threats that might accrue is sure to get shredded between those two. So there isn't really any negative side of having two supernatural layers by my side ;)
