I loved all the Zephanaia's memory especially her exploit with Prometheus to the Nameless City.

Also, when Aoife was being thrown about by Prometheus like a father playing with his child. It speaks a lot of the Firelord and Aoife's reaction was quite surprising. As Machiavelli said, you wouldn't think Elders were capable of love.

Speaking of Machiavelli, that scene in Queztlcoatl's Shadowrealm w spoke well about his bargaining skills, that plus Billy's childishness in dealing with his Elder was hilarious.

I agree, I loved those parts as well.

I also loved the car scene with Mach, Black Hawk, and Billy. flamelssecret/hysterical.gif

My favorite scene is when Billy met the Sphinx, and Machiavelli was talking about letting the sphinx pay for Billy. I couldn't stop laughing, that and when Sophie was attacking Coatlicue, and Josh still had the image of a beautiful women, and thought that he had to protect her.

I also loved all of those sense

My over-all favorites had to be between Machiavelli and Billy. For example...

QUOTE
"I'll be sick," Machiavelli promised, "and when I am, I'm going to be sick in your direction. Yours too," he added, looking back over his shoulder at Billy the Kid.
page 131

QUOTE
Billy caught Machiavelli by the arm. "Whatever you do," he whispered urgently, "don't mention the tail."
page 134

QUOTE
"Mac," Billy whispered in alarm. "Don't call me Mac. I hate that." "Then don't irritate the all-powerful elder," Billy muttered.
page 164

To quote a few, lol.

Then this quote from Pally and Shakespeare reminds me a lot of that last quote from Mach and Billy.

QUOTE
"We hate what we fear," he said sarcastically. He glanced at the knight. "Is that not so?" "Then don't irritate the all-powerful Elder," the knight whispered. "Do not anger me," Tammuz rumbled.
page 209.

I laughed so hard at this because everyone on the forums calls him Mach, which is pronounced distinctly different from Mac (made me think of a McDonald's Big Mac ) but its very close

I actually pronounce "Mach" the same way as "Mac" but mainly because Machiavelli has the "hard C" sound in it.

But to add to that, I'll have to try to find the actual quote later, but Pally also gripes in the book about how he hates to be called Pally.

Ah, I pronounce Mach the same way I pronounce Machiavelli, which is the same as "Big Mac". However, you have been given the coup de gras on pronunciations, so I guess I should change mine, lol.

Pally reiterated the hating again in Necro as well when he bumps into Scatty.

This was most def. my favorite quote, especially with the arguments over the prophecy and such:

"Abraham believes the world will end..."
"He's been promising that for centuries. If he says it long enough, then one day he'll be right."

I've always pronounced Mac as Mach (like in Mach 2, breaking the sound barrier "Mach"). But I spell it without the H, since if I'm abberiviating, might as well be lazy about it (isn't that the point? )

Although, Scatty, Nick and Perry and all fine with their abbreviated names.

This definitely goes in my favorite quotes as well. I actually laughed when I read this.

As for pronouncing Mach, I pronounce it with a 'ck' just like SC does.

And i agree there were some great one liner quotes in this book, that were very profound that i truly enjoyed.

To get back on topic here...I had two favorite quotes -

QUOTE (pg 111)
“You do not frighten me, Alchemyst,” Aoife snarled.

“I should,” Nicholas whispered. “And Perenelle should terrify you.”

I just love how it makes Perry and Nick sound.

QUOTE (Billy pg 133)
“I’ve seen men go to their deaths laughing, I’ve seen others wail and cry. They all died in the end, but those who were laughing seemed to have an easier time of it.”

I really liked this insight into Billy's mind, I also like the sentiment.

I agree with all of you guys on the quotes! there were so many good ones! Here are mine:
Billy's "don't mention the tail!"
When Prometheus swung Aofie in the air. I thought it was kind of funny.
Aoifie's ninja tyrade.
And when the sphynx tried to buy Billy.
