Columbine Icefly, the Goddess of Scandanavia

I'M one of those people who has an obsession for online quizzes and name generators. I was browsing just this afternoon and came across a fairy name generator. Now I've always wondered, if I had wings and was ten centimetres tall, what they'd call me. It seems they'd call me something like:

Your fairy is called Columbine Icefly
She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen at midday under a quiet, cloudless sky.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has icy blue butterfly wings.

Cool, right? Although to be honest I'm not sure about the colour purple. It really doesn't go with my eyes. Especially my blood-red vampire eyes:

The Great Archives determine you to have gone by the identity:
Goddess of Scandanavia
Known in some parts of the world as:
Mother of The Vile
The Great Archives Record:
Vile, foul, filthy and greedy: this creature knows nothing of light.

That's me, all right! Seriously, try it. It's addictive. :D

As for me, I've just finished reading Brisingr, the third Inheritance book. I have very mixed feelings about this one; I'm not a huge fan of the Eragon books anyway, and at times I found it a drag, and at others it was really interesting. Here's my full review from Goodreads:

Brisingr (Inheritance, #3) Brisingr by Christopher Paolini

My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I find this book a little mixed. Sometimes I found it really interesting, and at others I found it a real drag. I liked the Roran parts, but the Eragon parts began to drag a lot. Also, I missed Murtagh. Where is he? I seriously hope he's more involved in the final book, as he was one of my favourite characters!

Having said that, I thought there were some really cool ideas in this book. The soldiers who couldn't feel pain, and the Trial of the Long Knives, though a little unnerving, was an interesting concept. I think I'll have to read the final book before I can make up my mind about this series.

  1. I will CRY if Murtagh isn't in the fourth book more. And throw an actual tantrum. And feel like I wasted however many hours of my life reading this series (other than the first book--I won't feel that was a waste, because I liked the first book well enough.)
    Murtagh is the reason I kept reading despite the severe dragging and increasing predictability of the series.

    I've never liked Eragon (the character) much. He grates on me. So I preferred the Roran parts too.

    Your fairy name is pretty badass, by the way :)
