Fantasy Creature Friday – Leprechaun!

May 1, 2015 Discussions 6

What is Fantasy Creature Friday? It’s a discussion where I will talk about a particular creature every week. And what book or book series I think of when that creature is mentioned. At the end of the post, you will also get to link up your own fantasy creature book reviews and discussions for others to wander through.

Thanks to Anya at On Star Ships And Dragon Wings for letting me borrow her ‘link your blog’ idea. She does a giveaway every Friday where you can win ARC’s and link up your reviews/discussions/giveaways. You should totally check it out after you’re done here!

 

This weeks creature is the:

 

Leprechaun!

 

A leprechaun is a type of Irish fairy. They usually appear as a little old man, wearing a coat and hat. Usually the clothing is green or red, and some wear buckles on their shoes that match the buckle on their belts. Like all fairies, they like mischief making, and love to pull pranks on humans.

They are solitary, and have a hidden pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. If captured by a human, they have the power to grant three wishes in exchange for their freedom.

 

I’ve read about leprechauns in a few books, including the Rachel Morgan series by Kim Harrison. Have you read about leprechauns before? What was your favorite book with a leprechaun in it?

      *laughs* A drunken bar bum? I haven’t read that book yet, but keep getting told I need to. I’ll have to move it up in my TBR list.

      *goes to double-check* Yup! It’s #3 in the list. But thanks for the reminder, sometimes I do forget to link everything up!

      Hmmm… That sounds familiar, I may have read at least one of those books. All the books I can think of with leprechauns, either they are minor characters, or they’re part of a ‘sexy romance’ type of story. It’s kind of funny actually.
