I've finished it! Thank you so much, Michael Scott. This had a big surprise in it--I expected that if Cuchulain (a.k.a. Setanta) ever appeared in the series, he would be on he side of the good. After coming across him while researching Scathach, I expected he would make an appearance somewhere, but I didn't expect that it would be in the short story! Great writing, and thank you again!

Wow...just wow. Amazing story, I neverin a million years saw that part about Cuchulain coming. Also, in chapter 6 I believe, the part with Scatty wearing aviators, that just sounds really epic. ( or at least the picture in my head is)

I loved reading this short story! I'm glad there was some mention of Pandora and it was great to read what the Morrigans aura smelled like. I have a lot of theories brewing! I like Billy even more now. The story between Scathach and Cuchulain made me sad, I have been wondering when the death spear was going to pop up.

The story was amazing! Just read it now flamelssecret/clap3.gif But that Scatty had to kill cucluhain (spelled) was so sad. The elder he served must really have corrupted him... don't know how he could blame Scatty... so sad T.T

I liked it a lot! it was pretty awesome. I loved the bit when Billy crashed the car into the cucubuths and was just like "Get in the car! We are going to Vegas! SOMEBODY IS GONNA PAY FOR THIS!"
I thought it was really sad when Scatty killed Setanta/Cuchulain. I was glad however that she went and released all the evils into his elder master's shadowrealm.
I agree that it was a pretty awesome snapshot of both characters. I especially liked how we got to see more of Billy's personality.

I have a feeling that given the circumstances that Billy was in when we last heard from him we will definitely get to see some of his personality come out in the Enchantress. It was by far my favorite part of the short story. I loved how honorable he was, also it was really cool to get a glimpse into some of the other relationships that both he and especially Scatty had with other immortals or Elders.

You never knew. That was his power. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, poof. He's gone.

A little bit slow on the upkeep, but I really enjoyed the story! It was really interesting to learn more about Billy's and Scatty's backgrounds. I especially loved the expansion of Billy's character that we saw. He's definitely moving up my rankings, favorite character-wise. Hopefully he and Scatty will have a few more adventures together!

Thanks so much Michael!! flamelssecret/clap3.gif

Finished this over the weekend! I loved it! It was longer than the Joan of Arc story, and it had some great extras in it! These short stories keep us going while we wait for the Enchantress! I'm probably not alone in my hopes for more to come!

There was something interesting that I sort of noticed at the back of my head. In the story, Billy says he has already met the Morrigan, then in the Sorceress, he introduces himself to the Morrigan (who at this point is being controlled by the Babd and Macha) as if he has never met her. Any theories on this?

That type of thing happens quite a bit in the series. I wouldn't call it an introduction as much as I would a reintroduction of sorts. Sometimes Elders remember bit often they do not. They view many of them immortal humani as beneath them.

That's one explanation. I was sort of speculating it might reveal something about Billy's character that when possesion of the Morrigan's body changed, he (re)introduced himself as if he knew she was a different person. I may just be crazy, I don't know.

well it could be that or it could be that he was again trying to hide the fact from machiavelli that he knew of other next generation. Or he might not of recognized her because of the different eye colors.

She did have on sunglasses, which was part of why Machiavelli didn't realize possession had changed. But your right, he might have just been trying to conceal what he knew.

This is the second book I've recently read with Cuchulain in it. Now I want to read the original mythology of him. Does anyone have a good suggestion for an Irish mythology book with him in it?

Why did Scatty not disappear into dust along with the other Vamps at the end of the Billy mini-novel when the sun came up? Does is have to do with the fact that she's not a blood/flesh eater?

Different vampyres have different abilities and weaknesses. Given that Scatty is over ten thousand years old she is of the original clan vampyre and has a much different makeup from the legends that we are all familiar.

she is also not a blood drinker like the other vampyres that were at the hotel. Scatty is a vampire with an I and the others were vampyres with a y.

I say, is there ever going to be an official book release, or will it be just an ebook exclusive forever? I'm pretty sure lots of fans who don't own those electronics really must be desperate for the two books.
