Okay Day 6 of the readalong and we are so close to the end !!!!Grab your weapons and wits and let's get started!
-S P O I L E R S-
Okay OKAY so Silas totally freaked me out. That was SUCH a tense scene when they brought Silas back and bargained with him. I was aghast when he asked for 30 years and absolutely touched when Elisabeth gave 10. OMG despite having good in him, hungry Silas is CREEPY and DANGEROUS too.
Although I love how once Silas is back, everything in the house is orderly. That scene where he adjusts the cutting board so it's parallel to the counter edge? I absolutely relate lol. Also the explanation about how the bargain works was interesting. I liked how he explained it to Elisabeth comparing it to a burning lamp.
Also I appreciate how honest Silas is. He even told Elisabeth frankly not to ever free him because he was an absolute monster when not bound to servitude. it also petrified me as it did Elisabeth.
I love that Nathaniel was making it snow even it kind of inconvenienced people. snow is far better than bleeding walls! The postman saying "That sorcerer of yours" made me smile! Also when he wakes up, the first thing he does is feel bad over the fact that Elisabeth gave 10 years. AND OMG THE BANTER STARTS IMMEDIETELY? I'm SO here for the characters who bicker and banter and then kiss. I giggled when Elisabeth told him she fought the book of eyes in her nightgown.
DAMN THAT ASHCROFT HE FOUND A WAY IN! I knew that would happen! Also the fact that the libraries make up a pentagram? Any Supernatural friends here cause that reminded me of the season 2 finale where the churches make up a pentagram (Devil's trap). BUT oh heavens, Ashcroft's plan is terrifying! I is scared.
Chapter 31 really frustrated me that they didn't believe Elisabeth and Nathaniel! The libraries need better communication! Someone get them a TV and a cell phone with internet connection. It was so annoying when Hyde just made his own assumptions about them and called Elisabeth a traitor ughhh
-L E T U S D I S C U S S -
How do you think Elisabeth and Nathaniel are going to escape? And how do you think Ashcroft is going to attack the library?
