Topic: Book Scene
Alexis is really making me think on this one and its so hard to narrow it down. I’ve read so many great scenes this year that I could og on and on. But for times and my sanity’s sake, I’ll go with two that I’m remembering.
Scene One: From Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
Benny, Nix, and the Lost Girl are in the Rot & Ruin planning to rescue some kids from some lunatic bounty hunters who intend on using them in their sick Z-Games. All manner of hell breaks loose and chaos ensues between the rescuers, the bounty hunters, rambling zombies, and the frightened kids. Just when you think all is lost, and there is no way any of the characters you love is getting away unscathed and unharmed, something phenomenal happens. I’d say what, but I don’t want to give it away in case you decide to read it….but I was so PSYCHED! The epicness of that scene will stay with me for a long while and it kind of makes me want to read it again!
Scene Two: From Game of Thrones by G.R.R. Martin
There are so many scenes full of awesomeness in this book that it’s hard to pick. But I love the one I’m going to share because it made me feel quite proud of Rob Stark, and my heart just filled up with joy for him. It’s near the end of the book and Rob has gathered the North forces to move against The Lannisters for killing his father and essentially holding his sisters hostage. He has won some important battles against the Lannisters and now speaks with the council of men he is relying on to help win this war he is involved in. The men of the North decided they will not serve Joffrey, Stannis, or Renly and declares Rob their one and true king, and dons him, The King of the North. The scene was so moving! And lucky for me they made this a tv series so I can use the accompanying video!
