I was at the front of the army alongside Bellamy and Octavia. The only reason why Bellamy and I were at the front was because we knew everything about what Echo had told us. Bellamy looked through a scope to see the pillboxes. “Two pillboxes, just like Echo said.” Bellamy told us, handing it to me so I could look through. I looked through and sighed. Good job Echo.

In that light, I don't really mind if % of every book is factually true or canon, I love the mystery, the sense I .

  This begins with a brief discussion of the Big Bang and related cosmological phenomena (such as the Theory of Relativity, Dark Matter, Dark Energy, etc), their powerful religious implications and how they support a belief in God. Next, there's a discussion of Auschwitz and related phenomena, and their contrary religious implications. It ends with a resolution of sorts. “Yes, I do see,” said Damocles. “I see now that I was mistaken, and that you have much to think about besides your riches and fame.

I love "Damocles." From its rich character-driven story to its dazzling imagery, Redling took me on a flight across the stars to the planet of Didet and I got to meet two extraordinary characters - Earth woman linguist Meg and Didato native Luol/5.

The book was generally enjoyable. The idea for the book is a really interesting concept, not one that I have seen before. It is also a more old-fashioned sci-fi novel, which is pretty refreshing. However, for me the book was lacking. For me it promised so much more than it actually delivered/5().

Please take your place, and let me go back to my own house.” And as long as he lived, Damocles never again wanted to change places, even for a moment, with the king.

Damocles is not a particularly exciting book, but it's a fine work of genuine speculative fiction. I did not love the narrator, who particularly The love of Damocles book listening at higher speeds (I usually listen to audiobooks on my Audible app) has a very high-pitched and sometimes annoying voice, though she was clear and did a good job switching between Meg.

Damocles is a character who appears in a (likely apocryphal) anecdote commonly referred to as "the Sword of Damocles," an allusion to the imminent and ever-present peril faced by those in positions of power. Damocles was an obsequious courtier in the court of Dionysius II of Syracuse, a 4th-century BC ruler of Syracuse, Sicily.

The anecdote apparently figured in the lost history of Sicily by Occupation: Courtier. Damocles, a courtier of Dionysius I of Syracuse, in Sicily, tyrant from to BCE.

The courtier is known to history through the legend of the ‘Sword of Damocles,’ which was related in Cicero’s Tusculanae disputationes (‘Conversations at Tusculum’), Book V.

~Spencer’s P.O.V.~ My eyes opened up just barely as a dim light was seen in the room. I heard the heart monitor beeping quietly, my heart sounding steady and healthy.

I groaned a bit from the pain in my head as I looked around, trying to see everything that was happening. “Well, look who’s awake.” Someone smiled as they walked over to me.
