Hounded Read-along: Week 3

I have been wanting to read this book for a while so when the lovely ladies from Geeky Blogger's Book Blog, On a Book Bender, Smash Attack Reads!, In the Closet With a Bibliophile, and The Unread Reader decided to host this read-along I jumped on board. Come join the fun!

Questions Week 3: Chapters 11 to 15

1. I love Leif Helgarson, Viking Vampire, Esq. I have to say that combo makes a pretty cool attorney. If you could have a paranormal/mythical beastie (or combo) covering your tuckus in court, what would you choose and why?

I think I would choose a Greek god or goddess.  They are sneaky and devious and are not afraid to play dirty.  I'm too naive to go to jail.  I'd need someone who would throw out all the stops to make sure I stay out of prison.  Plus if I didn't win, then they could just kill everyone with their lightning bolt, trident, etc. 

2. The police show up to question Atticus about his Irish Wolfhound, Oberon. If you could own any dog breed, what would it be and why? (P.S. Oberon is going on my list of favorite sidekicks!)

I really enjoy Labrador retrievers.  This is a breed my family has had it whole life and I really like it.  I also like Huskies and the Husky-Pomeranian mixes are as cute as can be!
3. Malina Sokolowski and the other Sisters of the Three Auroras coven have my antennae up. What is your opinion of them?

As of now I like Malina Sokolowski, but I think the witches are up to no good.  I normally really like witches but this coven seems to be hiding something...and Emily is a whole other story.  Yikes, what a nightmare.

4. Brighid, goddess of poetry, fire and the forge, gave Atticus the power of Cold Iron, which can be used to fight off that nasty lilttle hellspawn. If you could wield one magical power, what would it be and why?

I think I would like the knowledge to be able to absorb knowledge at incredible speed and to be able to master anything I read.  That way I could become an expert at everything in a very short time.  I would be intelligent, be able to speak multiple languages, learn some serious ninja moves and hopefully improve my cooking skills. 

5. The cops show up at Atticus’ shop to search for poor Oberon, who remains magically hidden throughout the ordeal. What is the one thing you would do if you could remain hidden from sight? I want to hear some good answers for this one!

I can't think of something quite appropriate so I'll let you use your imagination. 


  1. I have never seen a huskie pomeranian mix before! You are right they are too cute! The knowledge thing or learning by osmosis is an awesome idea. I would love be able to pick up a book an soak it all in. I would killl on my blog that is for sure, I would have so many reviews.

  2. Yes, picking up information like that would make life a ton easier!!! A greek God or goddess would be a fantastic lawyer, talk about all powerful!

  3. Labs are great dogs!

    Oooo, being able to absorb knowledge would be a great power to have.

  4. "Plus if I didn't win, then they could just kill everyone with their lightning bolt, trident, etc." Right?! LOL!

    I chose Huskies too! They are so adorable. Look at that little baby! We wants one!

    I would love to absorb knowledge. I would also want to know a billion different languages and be able to talk to all sorts of people and know so many things. So cool.

  5. Wow that picture looks like a cuddly toy brought to life. Great choice of lawyer, who could beat an omnipotent God in court, you'd be bound to win.

  6. Okay, that pic is EXACTLY why I'm glad I didn't have my malamute at such a young age. She would have totally owned me then. LOL

    Oh to absorb power. YES! I like that one! Ninja skills here I come! Oh, I better put in athletic ability in my wishes for that one. LOL

  7. oh gosh---could you see Zeus as a lawyer. He would get fed up and smite them all LOL Great choice there :)

    Huskies are so adorable :)

  8. Don't know why I didn't think about having a god or godess as a lawyer - totally bloody brilliant and way to go with that.
    Lynn :D

    1. Oh, and forgot - that picture of the little puppy is 'the cuteness'.
      Lynn :D

  9. Picking a god or goddess for your lawyer had me thinking that Anya from the Lords of the Underworld series would be the perfect defense attorney, hands down. Great answer!! I didn't even think outside the box on that one!

    And awesome idea on the reading anything and immediately mastering it, ala John Travolta from Phenomenon (I'm full of useless knowledge tonight, huh?). I would definitely rock the chef and multiple languages!!!

  10. Are you really going to let me unleash my imagination? That's kind of dangerous. LOL

    And that puppy can't be real, right? I mean tooooooo adorable. My heart is melting here.

    Being super intelligent and speaking any language would be awesome. If we could pull it off, we could be like those Alias chicks.

  11. That dog is SO cute! :) I would love the speak many different languages! Great answers, Lisa!

  12. Sounds like a really great series. Loving the cover of this book. I may try the first one when I'm back in the Netherlands. ;)

  13. Absorbing knowledge would totally rock. I know I would love to have that power :)

  14. OMG, that is the most adorable dog picture I've ever seen! I never knew Husky-Pomeranian mixes exist.

  15. That dog... I can't even... I just... It's so... *brain melts from too much cute*

    I would love to be able to absorb knowledge and then instantaneously master it as well. That would be a kickass power in and of itself!


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
