caractères, merkki and of course, characters...part 2

Good Morning to all!
Today is the 11th of September which means there is exactly 9 days until the wonderful Brisingr comes out. The widget to your right is available for the taking if you wish to keep an eye on the days counting down. If you live in Australia come to my shop Collins, we like customers! :D

As celebration for this day coming up I have decided to add another character to our blog. This was one of the first characters Helsinki and I created. Her post will appear later with her character. If you haven’t read Eragon or Eldest I suggest you don’t read further as there are major SPOILAGE!** for the win?

If I was a character from Eragon/Eldest/potentially Brisingr I would be:
Name: Eviée
Costume: black and green pants with a top that wraps around the stomach. Bandages all down her right arm and shoulder and ink on her left shoulder blade of a crest with a sword, later being known as the crest for telling people she is known to be the best swordswoman in all of Aalagaesia.
Side: The Varden
Lover: Murtagh
Specializes in: best swordswoman in all of Alagaesia
Personality: she’s got a very strong backbone and is often to the point of being stubborn. The only person she bends for is Murtagh and is a very good friend to Eragon when meeting him in Eragon. She gives him good advice with his sword and teachers him to love his weapon, showing her loyalty to the Varden by saying “if they asked me to kill, I would, if they asked me to surrender I would…if they asked me to die…I would”
Story: lived with Murtagh, were best friends and forbidden lovers because of their background and Murtagh’s fathers past. After Murtagh flees he says to leave after him so people don’t think they ran away together. She runs away after and in Eragon is on her search to find Murtagh. She joins the Varden and meets him when he is captured. She helps him escape when the war is happening. They fight together and reveal their love now that they are in a safe environment…for now
In Eldest when Murtagh dies Eviée retreats to her room and only comes out to train and eat. She doesn’t talk to anyone but Eragon and develops a good relationship with him before he leaves to go to the elves. When the war comes and she sees Murtagh and Eragon fighting she tries to break them up. She finds Murtagh has changed and is too late to do anything as Murtagh knocks her out and takes her away on his Dragon. In Brisingr the story will fit so Eviée is bound to him through his magic and cannot leave further than he wants. She reveals later on in the story when begging to go back home that she needs to go back because she is pregnant….da da daaaam
Fear: Galbatorix, Dragons

sorry for the lack of photo i shall post one later!

Breaking Dawn

Well it is the end of August and now well into September. First lines month is over, not that if was much of a month!

But the best first line was found to be from jess:

"Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun."
-Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy-

And now moving on to more important things. Like more books.

It has been found that after reading Breaking Dawn not many people were happy with it, including me.

A lot of jokes have been trolling through the internet about eating out uteruses; it being a fail fan fiction, even artwork on deviant art takes the piss out of what used to be another Harry Potter. At least J.K Rowling wrote the story for herself and not to please her fans!

Did anybody else think that SOMEBODY should have died!!? I was expecting at least Charlie to die.
For me though, I did not read Breaking Dawn so my review is coming from someone that doesn’t have FULL knowledge. Even though people told me everything about it, I couldn’t stand wasting my time reading it just to find out that she went back on all the rules of writing and her own rules with vampires in general, just to please her audience, which she still failed to do seeing as so many people were unhappy.

The fact that she made her main character be reluctant to marry the man she loved, yet be perfectly fine with being pregnant is saying something to small teenagers. It’s not exactly aimed at adults as much as adults can read young adult fiction; it is originally for….young adults!

I can’t even rate this story, it made me so angry I couldn’t finish it, me, book nerd, couldn’t finish a book!

Helsinki on the other hand did read it, so her review would be worth more of a read then my tantrum.

Catch peeps!
