Hounded Week 4 Chapter 16 to 20

Week 4

March 23rd: Chapters 16-20 hosted by In the Closet With a Bibliophile
March 30th: Chapters 21-25 + epilogue hosted by The Unread Reader

1. Just after Atticus is shot, Oberon has to "ninja" his way out of the shop and into Hal's Beamer (with the icky air freshener). Have you ever been in a situation where you had to "ninja" your way out and try not to be discovered? If so, what happened?

When I was a kid, my cousins and I loved to play hide-and- go- seek. Well, one particular afternoon, I was feeling a little naughty that I left younger cousin alone in a room who was hiding under the table while I "ninja"-ed out of the room to secure a better hiding place. It took them hours to find me that they had to enlist their mom ( my aunt) for help. Boy, was I in hot water afterwards.

2. Atticus's main goal through a large portion of the book is not only protecting Oberon, but also protecting the sword. You are now living in a paranormal world and you need a weapon! What weapon do you choose and what can it do?
I always like to have learned archery (and no not because of certain pointy- eared elf - haha) so a bow and arrow for me. What will the bow do when arrows are fired? The arrows will have a magical resonance being attuned to the bow and that they will explode upon impact on the enemy. Any  enemy who dares to touch either the bow or the arrows will probably melt to goo too.:)

3. To recharge and heal after being shot, Atticus sleeps naked, tattoos to the earth, in a patch of grass near the Civic Center in downtown Scottsdale. Where is the weirdest place you have ever slept?

Hopefully, nowhere in the future.

4. We finally find out some very interesting information about Granuaile and I don't know about you, but I certainly wasn't expecting to find that she's sharing her head with someone else. What about you, did you expect anything along those lines? If not, what were you expecting concerning Granuaile?

I didn't expect it at all. I really thought that she was witch too.

5. Laksha is a witch, a truly evil one at that for many of the things she's done in the past. However, she's supposedly seen the error of her ways. Do you think she really has? Would you be willing to trust her? Do you think Atticus is smart to have decided to trust her to help him with the "other" witches?

From their convos, I thought Laksha was sincere to admit her mistakes and I did feel some genuineness about her helping Atticus against the "other" witches. I just hope this temporary alliance will not bite him so hard in the backside. *Cross fingers*


  1. hahaha!

    I would love to learn archery, and of course a hot elf teaching me would just be an extra incentive. LOL

    And that must have been a really good hiding spot. :)

    1. Yeah, it was and I thought I even outwit my other cousin who was the IT. :D

  2. I liked the bow too! Love the ninja story. I did that a time or two as a tot.


Thank you for visiting and dropping me a line or two. ☺
