This week is about ALL the men, angels, and undead.
I’d also like to say thank you for all the shares on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest!! It’s awesome that so many people spread their love for this series!! Especially with Iniquity coming out soon (I hope).
I gave myself a birthday gift recently – a post with some of my favorite swoon worthy fictional characters. Some of those authors are, Cassandra Clare, Nicole Williams, Sarah Fine, Colleen Hoover (LOVE!!), Veronica Roth, Laury Falter, Abbi Glines, and M. Leighton <–all Amazon links
We can’t do an entire week of the Premonition without including Brennus. In an effort to remain fair to Brennus I asked Cristina from Cristina’s Book Reviews to tell us about her man.
Cristina asked that I not mention ____ <– name of the most amazing angel that EVER fictionally lived. So her Brennus could “shine”.
I have my battle shirt on….
And my hands ready at the keys…wired on coffee…
LET’S DO THIS
Meet Brennus; Undead
When I first stumbled upon Inescapable, I had no idea how much I would love this series and to say “I love it” is putting it lightly. I have stalked the master storyteller, Amy Bartol since September and I believe the restraining order has been filed but I’m hoping those charges will be dropped soon. In any event, I’m beyond thankful to Amy for introducing me to the fictional character that I want to marry and yes, it’s boarder-line unhealthy but who cares, right?
I see that you’ve met Reed, Zee and Russell. *big yawn* While I think they’re nice, let’s just say…they don’t do it for me. One word: Brennus. Ladies, be prepared to fall in love and I mean, fall hard.
Brennus is introduced in book two of the Premonition Series, Intuition and this is when he meets Evie and nothing will ever be the same again. Like EVER.
“I think ye’re looking at dis da wrong way. Why wouldn’t ye want ta be one of us; ta be protected and cared for by Gancanagh who will always have yer back?” he asks. “We will never look at ye like ye’re scum…like ye do na have a right ta exist.”
I get it, Brennus was a bit brutal with Evie when they first met but then Amy Bartol teases us with little shreds of hope that Brennus does in fact have redeeming qualities.
Just when I think I know Brennus, I really don’t because he becomes more than loveable in Indebted (#3). He demonstrates he’s capable of being selfless. If he was attracted to Evie before, he’s now full on head over heels for her and he wants to make her his Queen.
“Dis is…ye are giving me yer blood?” he asks with a sultry look I can feel. “I’m giving you my trust. That is the blood I planned on drinking in order to stop the craving of being bitten. You can do whatever you want with it – my blood. I just ask that you protect the trust I have given you,” I say, watching his eyes grow dark as he puts the stopper back on the bottle. “Do ye know dat no one has given me anyting since I died?” he asks, extending his hand for me to take, I sit next to him again. “Everyting dat I have I have had ta fight for or earn”.
That one passage is so heartbreaking!!
I will admit that Brennus broke my heart in Incendiary (#4) but I think people do crazy things when they’re in love. Okay, so the things he does is a bit over the top and somewhat drastic but I’m still team Brennus.
“I’ll save her, aingeal. I’ll make her storng again,” Brennus says. CLICK, his fangs engage and he uses them to tear open his flesh. He lets his dark blood well up.“Why can I na do it?” Brennus spits out in torment. “Why can I na turn her?”
Relief makes my neck bend and my head hang forward. “You love her soul – willing or not. Her soul has been rooting for you – for your redemption.”
“Dere is no redemption for me, ye know dat.”
There are so many layers to Brennus but once you reach his core, you know he’s not all evil. Yes he’s mercurial and somewhat obsessive but no one is perfect.
I urge you all to take a walk on the dark side and you might find that you’ll love it as much as I do!
Brennus will always be MOIN!!! 😉
THANK YOU SO MUCH Cristina!
And thank you to all the Amy Bartol fans who stopped by and showed their love! This week was a blast!
I ask that everyone play nice. No name calling to each other (characters in the books is okay). We are all fans of the same books. Let’s keep that in mind while we rip each other’s opinions to shreds!
ALSO, since this will be the last Premonition post on this blog until Book #5
Get it ALL out of your system! Who you love, hate, don’t trust, root for, and…
Feel free to flat out beg Amy Bartol for the one thing that you NEED to happen.
