Well, by now you should be well into Wings of the Wicked. In fact, if you haven't gone past these chapters, then there's something wrong with you, because there's no way you can't not power through this book. Get ready have your heart ripped out in the coming chapters guys.
If you read Momo's post from Monday, you know that CAM just got her author copies of Shadows in the Silence in the mail!!!!! AAAHHHHH!!! It's so close I can taste it!!! Also, the ebook A Dance With Darkness (a sort of prequel to Angelfire, but with Madeleine and Bastian as the stars) came out on January 2nd! Just click on picture below to find out more about it:
Don't forget, you're supposed to have finished chapters 9-17 by now!
Here are our answers were to that discussion question on Monday I'll start with Momo's answer:
If you had to destroy yourself in order to save the people you love and everyone else on earth, would you do it?
Momo: Oh man, this week's question is heavy... but after some thought, I've come to conclude that I would go to any lengths to make sure that the people I loved and cared deeply for along with everyone living and breathing on planet Earth were safe. At first, I was thinking, "No way!" But the more I thought about it, if I didn't destroy myself or do everything that I could to protect those that I cared about as well as those that were innocent bystanders, then we would all lose. If I was the only one that could prevent everyone's doom or if the fate of all of their lives were in my hands, then no doubt, I would fight to the death, lol.
Nicole: Let me start off by saying, yes, I would. But. Yes, there's a but. It would take me some time to come to terms with the idea that I was going to die. I know that it would be for the people I loved, but the fact is that there's huge difference between imagining that you're going to die, and then have it actually happen. Ellie's death, especially, would be horrible and terrifying. I think I could accept my death easier if I knew it was going to be quick. Not only would I not want to suffer, but I know that the people I loved would want to know that I didn't suffer. I know this is a super morbid question, but honestly this book is about to get really morbid, in as close as the next chunk of chapters we're going to read.
Fun personal fact: I visited Michigan over winter break and passed by Michigan State [SPOILER: the school that Ellie gets into]. Sadly, I haven't gotten to visit the campus, but it's in a very nice area and I've watched them play different sports on TV. Another thing that happened was that I was going to go through Pontiac (where Ellie and Will used to train before their building got destroyed) to get to a friend's house, and my parents reminded me that that's not a good place to get lost. So just keep that in mind when Pontiac is mentioned: it's the kind of place no human wants to be stranded in.
