Character Q&A – “This or That” with Cicely Waters (from Yasmine Galenorn’s Night Seeker)

Hi everyone!! Today we’ve got a “special guest” joining us for a little bit of fun. Cicely Waters is an owl shifter and a wind witch (in Yasmine Galenorn’s Indigo Court Series). Like most gifts, these abilities come with responsibilities. Cicely has her hands full these days, trying to save herself, her family, and the rest of humanity, from the half fae, half vampire, 100% evil Queen of Winter, Myst. Last we saw Cicely and her crew (at the end of book 2, NIGHT VEIL), they were holed up and regrouping, readying themselves for their next move. Soon we’ll find out what that move will be (in July 3rd’s NIGHT SEEKER), but in a rare moment of down time, I managed to take her mind off what’s to come for a quick “This Or That” conversation. Everyone needs a break now and then, and Cicely has certainly earned a few smiles. Below are the answers to our chat… and the chance for YOU to check her impulse on a “This Or That” question of your own. (With prizes!)

20. READER’S CHOICE – OK everyone… in the comments below… ask Cicely a fun This Or That question.

    Since Night Myst you’ve been through hell. If you could put everything on hold for a week (wouldn’t that be nice?) what would you do, who would be with you and where would you go?

    Love the post!!

  7. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    Cicely speaking: I’d go on a trip up to a mountain lake, with Grieve, Rhiannon, and Chatter. Where we could just hang out, camp, walk through the forest, and have fun. It would be spring–I miss the spring and summer so much right now.

  8. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    Cicely: Hmmm…um, neither? I’d rather have a good gouda.

  9. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    Cicely: Obviously, Fae. I’ve had my fill of vampires enough to last me a lifetime, and since I’m part Uwilahsidhe (Fae), then I think I’d rather stick to my own kind.

  10. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    A mix of both. Can’t beat CCR for road music, but I also like Nirvana.

  11. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    Cicely: My fan. I love my fan. The obsidian blades scare me, even though I’m pulled to them.

  12. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    Cicely: can I have both? Mix them to make mocha???

  13. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    Cicely: Classic car, of course. 🙂 My Pontiac GTO is a classic.

    Wheatless in Seattle or Udi’s?

  21. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    Cicely: Jeans and tank top, mostly.

  22. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    Cicely: Not so much a tea person. Herbal, if I drink it. 🙂

  23. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    Cicely: I’d probably prefer to be around Camille, we have magic in common, and she’s not a vampire.

  24. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    Cicely: Donuts! Cake donuts, especially chocolate covered, powdered sugar, or the cinnamon-spice covered ones.

  25. Comment by Yasmine Galenorn:

    Cicely: Um…how about McDonalds? 🙂

  26. Comment by Morgan Vogel:

    given time and what not an issue, would you rather go rock climbing and bungee jumping OR sky diving and white water rafting?

    Thanks for all the fun “This or That” questions, everyone. The contest is now closed. I’m about to email the winner…


    I hope you all enjoyed this little break in the mayhem with Cicely. Be sure to keep an eye out for NIGHT SEEKER on July 3rd!! And if you haven’t started learning about the Indigo Court… Start with book one in the series, NIGHT MYST.
