Ep. 4: A Divine Comedy of Errors

Hey All! Rachel here. Here in the show notes we like to add any additional thoughts we may have missed during our first recording. It’s best if you follow along with the episode!

Sure maybe she looks like she’s trying to figure out who you are while she fights you, ooooooorrrrrr maybe she just farted. The world may never know.

For what it’s worth, she does get more comfortable pants. Where they came from is a mystery, but at least she doesn’t have to roast in skin-tight leather pants.

I feel like I didn’t do a great job of bringing attention to the sexual tension (textual tension?) between Cat and Griffin. Let me go ahead and give a quick example. At one point while they are travelling, Cat manages to piss off Griffin. Griffin throws her on his horse caveman-style and rides off to a nearby cave. They proceed to have an “argument” with a lot of lips and not a lot of well-thought out, researched counterpoints. So remember kids, if you ever find yourself in a debate that you’re not prepared for, try kissing your opponent without asking. It worked for Griffin. Alternatively, researched and cited sources. Your call.

I’m so torn about Cat. She’s comically overpowered, but I’ll be damned if she’s not entertaining.

I may have used the word literally a bit too liberally here. Rather than goo, the exact phrasing is “There isn’t time for them to scream before the skin sloughs from their bones and there’s nothing left but smoking, stinking puddles of melted men, metal, and leather.” Maybe a bit more evocative than “goo”.

So….side thought. Do you think Griffins hunt cats? I’m definitely not just getting that….On a completely unrelated note, I’d like to formally apologize to my highschool AP English teacher.

All in all, I can safely say that I will not be reading the next book in this particular series. I had to check it out again for these notes and going back through it did nothing to persuade me otherwise. Sorry Amanda Bouchet.

(Pssssstttt….over here….bit closer….follow the sound of Margie’s voice….

Hey ya’ll here’s my comment cuz I can’t keep my mouth shut. What IS the PROMISE OF FREAKING FIRE?! It’s in the TITLE and yet THERE’S NOTHING ABOUT A PROMISE OF FIRE IN THE STORY. I did check with Rachel so these are hard facts. Who decided on a title that references NOTHING about the book?)
