Friday 5@5 is a weekly feature to wrap up the week with a fun (and short) list because we know y’all want to get on with your weekends!
This week’s prompt:
Characters that would be in your squad
Can’t I just have all of them? Pretty pretty please?
Alright, I’ll try and narrow it down, but I’m going to have to have some combined entries on here or my five slots would be taken in the space of two books!
Seriously, the combined skills of these six has to make them an essential part of any squad! There’s no way to single out one or two of them… they come as a package deal.
Everyone from Shades of Magic
Another squad who come together or not at all. How could anyone possibly choose between Kell and Lila? Or Alucard? Or even Holland? And it wouldn’t be fair to leave Rhy behind, even if his… um… talents aren’t quite in the same league as the others (sorry!). Aside from the obvious magic, this lot make the cut for sheer determination, ferocity and refusal to give up.
You can forget about Harry – Hermione’s where it’s at in this series. This girl’s got brains, spellwork and courage in abundance. Leaving aside the fact she would probably disapprove of every single other member of the squad and their methods (looking at you, Kaz Brekker. Oh, and you too, Lila Bard).
I just want him along, alright? Alright? Good.
She might not be the cleverest, or the most powerful, but she’s loyal to the core, fierce as hell, strong and resolute, and if anyone can keep such a disparate bunch of egos together, Orion can.
Do you agree with my choices? Have I missed someone? Let’s chat in the comments.
