Solve a Riddle to Uncover Book 3’s Title and Win Something Shiny

I’m throwing around the idea of doing an escape room blog post. Having only sorta done one virtual escape room, I will need to take time to study this craft. In the meantime, I have some riddles for you. Email the correct answer/s to me for a chance to win a $5 Amazon e-gift card. US only (sorry!)

The first five people to send the correct answer/s to bethovermyer@gmail.com will get a gift card plus my undying gratitude for proving that my riddles aren’t too difficult. I’ll leave this open through August 1, 2021, 11:59 PM EDT. Are you ready?


This man was greeted as an old friend. Or was he a man? Emily could tell you, no fear you’d offend!

(Now, name and make him the possessor. Congratulations! You have the first word, you clever old guesser.)

ALT or Enter (or in fable “speak friend”);
Map or piano may in part attend.

You’ve the second word—you’re quite on a roll.

For the next part, downward you scroll!


Libro secundo, Meraude ha questi calici:

231 hard, 231 soft.

If you riddled this out,

No holes in YOUR sight.

If you move to the right

You’ll know what it’s about.

The second one she’s got.

Think you’ve untangled

This sticky old web?

From this section: take the first word,

Plus the first three letters of the second,

What do you have?

(The road goes ever on and on,

But all good things must come to a close.

Is that not right?

Was I not on the nose?)


Just a reminder: Book two (Holes in the Veil) is out, and book one (The Goblets Immortal) is part of a Goodreads giveaway, which ends on the 1st of July, 2021.
