Discussion Three~Chapters 9-12
Questions hosted by Books in the Spotlight
Catcher and Ethan share some personality traits. What makes Mallory, Merit, and even us readers attracted to these guys? Would you date/mate with someone like these guys in real life?
PS- Ok so Ethan may have some metro man in him, but he's a kick-butt vampire so that cancels out wimpy boy status for sure!!
In Chapter 9 we learn of another murder. Do you see any patterns with the previous murder and Merit's attack? Do you have any guesses as to who is responsible and the motive behind the murders?
ARGH! This question is hard to answer because I already read the book, but yes there is for sure a pattern. The murder victims have the same features and the same age-type, so obviously someone out there is targeting dark haired, college aged gals.
The commendation is my favorite moment in the book and a significant event in Merit's life. She has finally come to terms that she is a Cadogan vampire. Were you surprised at all that Merit resisted Ethan's call and that he made her a Sentinel? Do you think she'll do well in this position? Why or why not?
A little bit, I didn't think Merit would have the power she obviously has to resist Ethan, but that just shows you even without being compelled the girl is choosing to be loyal to her house....and has some future skills coming at us. I loved that Ethan made Merit a Sentinel...whether it was because he was out to prove a point to her OR utilize something special he sees in her, I think it was a great power move.
Loyalty is a reoccurring theme throughout the book and much of this series. Why is it so important to Ethan that he needs Merit's allegiance? Is it solely a Master and a Sentinel thing or does it imply something else?
I think its a little of both.....Ethan needs to know Merit will be loyal to the house for the safety of the others and proving he's the master, she's the minion...however I think Ethan sees a spark in Merit and knows he has a gem on his hands, that could in the long run make the Cadogan house very powerful. Not to mention he may or may not have feelings for her.
If you had the opportunity to sit down with Ethan, Merit, Mallory, and Catcher for a bite to eat like in the beginning of Chapter 12, what questions would you ask them at this point of the story?
Catcher if you were in a fight with Gandolf do you think you could take him?
Merit, seriously how much do you eat?
