The Main Antagonist?  Reply with quote  

Hey everyone. First post.

Anyway, i was wondering who the "primary villain" of the book would be? Is it the Morrigan or the bull-headed death? (I apologize for not knowing his name. I have a visual impairment and get my books on tape through a group here in Michigan called Library for the Blind. it sounds like Orkus? Orchis?) I thought the goddeses be second fiddle to bull-death but then he gets taken out by Charlie and them and a lot more happens with the 3 than it does with bull-death. Though it could be that it's because he is weak and helpless for most of the book?

I would think that the main antagonist would be Charlie himself struggling with an internal antagonist to get on with the rest of his life after the death of his wife.

Welcome Nikkolas!

I never really thought about it before, but I think that there isn't really a single main antagonist, just various manifestations of the primary antagonist that is Death. This includes Charlie's own grief, guilt, and confusion, the Morrigans, and the bull-headed death, plus, I'm sure, many others.

If you use a screen reader, see if you can set it on "cool Brit" for my posts. Smile
