Today’s Blogoween Prompt

Prompt Title:Β  An Evening of Mystery & Murder

Explanation:Β  You’re hosting a Halloween-themed dinner party and seven of your favorite morally gray fictional characters and/or villains have accepted your invitation. Sometime during the party there is a murder, and there are only seven suspects – you and your guests. Who did you invite, who was murdered, what was the murder weapon, and where in the house did it occur.

(Yes this prompt is inspired by Clue, the best movie based on a board game ever made.)

It’s a dark and stormy Friday evening in October and your pulse is racing. It is almost time for the portal to open, breathing life into some of your favorite characters for a brief dinner party at your house. The truth is that you cannot believe tonight is here and happening: your favorite characters have accepted your invitation to dine and play a game of mystery… but no one could anticipate there would be more on the menu than Coq Au Vin.

The Guests

  1. Holland from the Shades of Magic series
  2. Levi from Ace of Shades
  3. Victor Vale from the Villains series
  4. Eli Ever from the Villains series
  5. Maram from Mirage
  6. The Sole Survivor on Achlys from Contagion
  7. Dorian Gray from The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Murder

I bet you are thinking to yourself that the victim has to be Victor, right? WRONG! Turns out that Eli is the one to stumble upon Holland’s body quite literally on the bathroom floor in a pool of blood. A knife lays sticky and discarded. You have a house full of suspects, who could the killer be?

It was Colonel Mustard, in the Observatory with the candlestick! Oh wait… wrong scenario… I’d like to see YOUR THOUGHTS on who the murderer could be in the comments down below! Whoever guesses correctly will get a metaphorical cookie when I reveal all later this month!

who do you think did it out of the list of suspects?

  1. I love this post lol πŸ™‚ So glad that Eli, Victor and Holland all made it to your list. They are some of my favourite morally grey characters ever haha. Hmmmm I’m going to guess that it is Eli himself, since he is invincible enough to do it. Keep us posted about who the real murderer is!
    I’m in the middle of Vengeful right now and I’m looking forward to finishing it πŸ™‚

    1. I swear that Victoria writes the best morally grey characters out there! Good guess, and I definitely will keep you all posted!
      I am supposed to be reading Vengeful right now but I am in a slump and just don’t feel like reading. I hope you are enjoying it!

      1. Absolutely!
        Compared to Vicious, I find that Vengeful (so far) is a slower-paced book and a bit harder to get into. However overall I am enjoying the book. Hope that you will like this one when you get to it πŸ™‚

      2. I just remember the book dragging on for hundreds of pages. It was like bookended by a strong start and end… the whole thing read like a boring set-up for book 3… which I still haven’t read because 624 pages!

        And second book syndrome is definitely a thing! I am hoping it won’t be too bad in Vengeful since it is only a duology, but who knows.

      3. I remember speeding through Vicious but Vengeful was slow by comparison! For a while there I didn’t know what the story was about. It was a bit disappointing for me. However I think you should still give this book a try πŸ™‚

  2. Honestly, I want to say it’s Dorian Gray too. All it takes is someone seeing his picture or knowing his secret and he’d be forced to murder without compunction.

    Or, all of them did it, *shot*

  3. Except for Dorian Gray, I don’t know anyone from your list (I need to put my butt to work and read these books, I know). So I’m going to have to say Dorian. Right? Actually no, you know what, I’ll pick Levi. Just because.
