1. 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?
I would have loved to have been there when what are mysteries to us were made. The pyramids, hearing philosophy being discovered and taught. Thoughts and inventions long lost to us because of the destruction of civilizations we never knew about. Pretty cool stuff. And yet... I would still crave anything new. I mean I can see that your perspective would (hopefully) be widened. Most of your blinders would have come off and you could see all people as having the same struggle over and over. I guess I'd be excited as Atticus was excited about anything new or novel. My guess is that is rare after a few centuries. :)
2. 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!
No, I don't think it is enough and neither did Atticus. He did think that it would take some of their advantage away and I think he was counting on their laziness for protection more than the amulet. However, poor guy... having to have no defenses against so many hot chicks... LOL
3. 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 love Irish Wolfhounds!! In fact, I've wanted one. :D So who do I want as a talking companion?
Those that follow this blog have already been introduced to him (especially in this post) and already know he sorta talks to me. He is quite proficient in communicating without words, so I'd be curious as to the convos we'd have if he had words. I mean other than what smexy female dog he just saw... or what is for dinner... ;D
4. 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!
I know that my first name means honey bee. I tell everyone it is because I'm just so sweet! *cough* I also know the origins of my last name and what it means. However, I don't look like anyone else who shares my last name in my family. ;) What name do I wish I had? I have no idea. I mean would they know I was a sweet girl otherwise? *large cough* Excuse me...
5. 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.
I would if I had the means and the need! They may be enemies but it also seems that right now they are using their gifts for a mutual benefit. So, I'd say the positive would be that you would have very different perspectives on a paranormal problem. The negative is that they would want you to follow their advice no matter what you thought. LOL
Thanks Felicia for those questions! If you are following along, the next set of questions for this book is scheduled for the 9th and this set is hosted at On a Book Bender!
