If you didn’t know, I’m participating in the TRUTHWITCH read-along, hosted by the Waterwitch Babes. Every Friday between the February 1st and the 29th, I’ll be posting the answers to the discussion questions that the hosts have accumulated. Let’s get started!
1. A huge part of the story takes place on the sea. Do you love the ocean? Would you like to travel with the crew on the Jana? Or do you think you’d get seasick?
I do love the ocean; it’s serene and beautiful, and I would probably love to travel with the crew. I’ve only been on a cruise once, and I didn’t get seasick, but I don’t know if I would get seasick in this situation.
2. From the boys we’ve met so far – Merik, Aeduan, Kullen, Leopold – who would you choose to be your book boyfriend? OR: From the girls we’ve met so far – Safiya, Iseult, Evrane, Ryber – who would you choose to be your book girlfriend?
I would choose either Kullen or Aeduan as my book boyfriend. I feel like Kullen’s the comic relief character, which I usually love, and Aeduan seems to be an antagonist with a nicer side underneath so I would probably be okay with either. I would also choose Iseult as my book girlfriend because she has an amazing ability and she’s strong and resilient and I love to see the character development that she’s going through.
3. Did you imagine the sea foxes as described in the book? Do you think they’ll play a greater part later in the series?
I had no idea what the sea foxes looked like, except that they probably resembled foxes to an extent. I suppose they will play a part later in the series because obviously, the characters are going to go back to sea and there’s most definitely going to be problems.
4. What is your first impression of Nubrevna?
Wow. It’s nearly a wasteland, no matter how much you try to cover it up.
CHARACTER SPOTLIGHT: MERIK
“Whenever there were wrinkles, Merik had to smooth them out.” (p. 205) Do you think he succeeds in “smoothing the wrinkles out”? What do you think of his actions so far? Do you like Merik?
I think he tries his best to solve the problems set before him but he just overall seems so contradictory. He obviously harbors feelings for Safi but then acts like a complete ass to her and Iseult. I’m definitely going to have to see how his character plays out in series to figure out whether I like him.
