The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves: The Druid's Call by E.K. Johnston

       

  

On Friday's I take part in two weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. 

Happy Friday everyone!  This week I'm spotlighting one of my Trope-ical Readathon - Team Fantasy books, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves: The Druid's Call by E.K. Johnston.  I really enjoyed the movie and The Road to Neverwinter, so I'm really looking forward to this Doric central prequel.

Beginning:

In her parents' defense, they did try.  They didn't do a very good job, and they definitely gave up the moment things got difficult, but they did try.

And that is how the tiefling Doric survived babyhood.

56:

She heard the word "tiefling," and even though she didn't fully know what that meant, it was uttered next to "demon," so she knew it wasn't good.

  1. Honor Among Thieves was a lot of fun, and it's one of my favorite movies of the year. So The Druid's Call is something I would be interested in. Thanks for mentioning it, and have a great weekend!

  3. No, I would say that a tiefling demon would not be a good thing.

    1. Doesn't sound like it, but within world of the story they aren't necessarily evil but there is a lot of prejudice against them due to the stories about them.

  4. Tiefling. Is it an actual word or one made up by the author. Hmm. Looking it up. Here's what I found: The tiefling is a fictional humanoid race in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game. Guess that makes sense based on the title.
