The One With the Congregation Revelation

7/30/2020
TBOL ch 4 Through a series of tussles (verbal/physical) between the head of the de Clermont family and the Grand Master of the Knights of Lazarus, we finally learn who in the family actually holds that elusive seat on the Congregation, and where the HQ is located -- REVELATION! After we've examined all of the information in front of us, we finally understand why the rag-tag group of creatures must scatter in a week's time. As we go, these chapters continue to be dense with information, so...

The One With the Quorum

7/13/2020
TBOL ch 3 Family Meeting. Time: 4 am. Place: The de Clermont library, Sept-Tours. RSVP: N/A. Be there, or else. That sums it up, doesn't it? We learn that we STILL need to learn a lot about vampires (geez, Matthew)! This is a long one, but we had some things to say . . . stay tuned during Save It For the Show. We saved plenty for the show. This is another long episode, guys; it's just going to be that way for a while, since 2020 continues to surprise and (DISMAY)...

The One With Pseudo Science

6/25/2020
Character Study - A personality episode We're "on the tens" once again, and it's time for a character study! We thought that this would be an excellent way of handling the subject this go-around. We're revisiting our personality episode from way back when (2016), and doing a updated version; Personality 2.0, if you will. When you hear our process, you'll understand the title very well. It's pseudo science at its righteous best! We will be studying Kit, Susanna, Ransome, Fernando, Vivian,...

The One With the Demented Parakeet

5/28/2020
TBOL ch 2 A restless Matthew Clairmont makes the rounds and pays a few castle calls to the current residents of Sept-Tours. He's on edge, and his friends and family -- rightly -- welcome him back with wary caution. In the end, it takes Diana to bring him to his center (as he does for her). BUT, there's one family member who wonders out loud (to say the least) why Diana Bishop is harboring the blood song of his long-dead father, Philippe de Clermont. Like Matthew, the Daemons are also...

The One With So Much

5/14/2020
TBOL ch1 We've dusted off our copies of The Book of Life, opened it to chapter 1, and now we realize how much information this chapter actually contains! Not only do we get a glimpse of what has been going on in Sept-Tours while we were gone, but we get to see the events through different eyes, which paints a larger, more precise picture for us to study. New beginnings, indeed! Take this one in shifts, or power through the whole episode. It's one of the longer...

The One With Shadow of Life

4/30/2020
Bonus Episode Let's take a little break to grab a snack, stretch our legs, sort ourselves out and reflect on our trip through Shadow of Night. Then we'll go on to plan our next journey by establishing a baseline predicated on our collective/individual first-read impressions of The Book of Life, prior to hitting the road! WARNING: controversial opinions (what?! Never!) live in this episode. Strap in, it may get bumpy in the wagon! In this episode: By the segment -- yeah, about that? No...

The One With the Welcoming Committee

4/16/2020
SON Ch 41 & 42 We ride along with Diana and Matthew as they navigate their way back to their present, ready to face the future. We also get a little glimpse back at the 16th Century with our old friends, Andrew and Annie. AND we visit with Will, and get his side of the story. Either way, we are HOME. In order to get ready for The Book of Life, listeners, our next episode will be a look back at Shadow of Night, and a glance forward to The Book of Life. go.DaemonsDiscuss.com/67Join us on...

Daemon Check-In

Special Edition COVID-19. There was no escaping this, so we are doing what we do best; talking our way through it. This is a snapshot of where we were mentally on the 20th of March, 2020.

The One With Lovesickness

3/19/2020
SON ch 40 Well, it seems we made it to 2010 even before Diana and Matthew did! We see what Marcus, Ysabeau and Sarah are all up to, and get a few revelations that will shock people on their first read, and continue to pain the rest of us as we all witness the various forms of lovesickness infecting Sept-Tours. There's also the pressing matter of Diana sending a message to the world 400 + years in the future via an Elizabethan mathematician/astronomer + a Huguenot...

The One With the Long Goodbye

SON ch 39 We are ending our adventures in the 16th Century. Goodbye, Goody. Goodbye, Hubbard. Goodbye, Walter. Goodbye, Kit. Goodbye, George. Goodbye, Hal. Goodbye, Jack. Goodbye, Annie. See ya, Susanna. Goodbye, Garlickhythe Gathering. Goodbye, Gallowglass. Goodbye, Pierre. Goodbye, House. It's time to step back to our present and get to know what's become unknown.

The One With "Father Knows Best"

2/20/2020
SON ch 38 "Parting is such sweet sorrow." Scratch that! Goodbyes flat-out suck! And that's what Diana has to deal with in this chapter; saying goodbye to her father -- although technically, not really -- but we get it. The fact that these two will never meet each other again (or WILL they?!) is not lost on us. At least there was a date night with Matthew to sweeten things up (sigh). In the end, Diana's OK, and we survive. Our All Souls lives are much sweeter having met Stephen Proctor -...

The One With the Familiars

2/6/2020
SON ch 37 Earlier in this book, we did this with Matthew and Philippe in the hay barn. Now it's Diana's turn to get a low-key beat-down from her father, and learn how to face her fears. Even though there are no swords involved, Stephen methodically helps her prepare for the big return to the future. With the help of Stephen, Goody and the girls, Diana realize her gifts are tools for her to use -- because let's face it . . . she's going to need it! This is one of our longer episodes, so...

The One With "Who's Your Daddy?"

1/23/2020
SON ch 36 With an urgent need to save her tormentors from Matthew's wrath, Diana finds herself guided by Father Hubbard to Bedlam. This dark, dank space for unwanted creatures is where Matthew ultimately decided to interrogate and torture Christopher Marlowe and Louisa de Clermont. Matthew is eventually talked down from the tree, deals are made, and they go on with life with the understanding that it's time to go back to their present -- BUT -- not just yet, Ms. Bishop! Shadow of Night is...

The One With the Prophecy

11/21/2019
SON ch 35 Diana finds herself tied up, and negotiating with two creatures who have decided they hate her and want her gone. When we open this chapter, it's hard to say how she'll wriggle herself out of this mess. As we saw in A Discovery of Witches, in the oubliette scene, a flash to her past brings clarity to who she is and what she's capable of. No need for Matthew! “You’ve always had the power, my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself.” – Glinda (The Good Witch), The Wizard of...

SON ch 33 & 34 In this double feature episode covering two chapters of Shadow of Night, we look at the dangerous creatures in and around Diana Bishop & Matthew Clairmont's lives. First, we are confronted with the anomaly that has gotten away from the de Clermonts, and landed into the hands of Peter Knox (and Gerbert!); poor Pavel! Second, we are launched back to Tudor England, to manage the temper-ridden monarch, and meet Matthew's legendary sister, Louisa de Clermont. She's using our...

The One With the Secret Castle Tour

SON ch 32 After getting out of that disastrous dinner with Rudolf, Diana and Matthew reflect on what they saw/thought/smelled from Ashmole 782. Gallowglass is doing his best to get them to break it down for to him as if he were a medieval vampire. They determine that they have break into the castle, and steal the book, and then beat feet out of Prague. But how? It seems Jack has and is the key to bust in, get the book, and get the f*ck out of there! A short, but great chapter!...
