Poor Kate and Curran and Jim, can't twitter when the magic's up, won't twitter when Kate's mad at Curran.   9) *snort*

I agree Good Mazoku... I was doing a great job until I got to "I kil u." and then I absolutely died. 

Also, how often has Kate NOT been fuming at Curran over something... and hasn't one of her primary goals a lot of the time been to avoid talking to Curran?  I fail to see how this "declaring war" is different from usual... I mean, I have every faith in the author's abilities to create  a special "Kate and Curran destroy the world because of their love/hate relationship" thing; I just have little faith in a reviewer who so obviously has not read the books. 

Good Mazoku

I wasn't worried so much about Kate being angry at Andrea, I was worried it was the other way around. I thought Andrea was mad at Kate for doing something she both wanted to do/felt she should do, and felt duty bound not to do.

This was kinda what I was thinking... Then I had an evil thought. What if Ted figured out what Andrea was and something happened to her and that's why she hasn't contacted Kate.
I had it as I fell asleep last night and it has stuck in my head. Just thought I'd share.

I have a feeling Ted is going to find out about Andrea eventually, but I doubt that's why Andrea is avoiding Kate. She may be upset and feeling guilty for not helping the Pack. Kate and Andrea need to team up and work together -- Maxine could be the secretary. :D And not to mention, if Aunt B wants Andrea to be Alpha, she wouldn't be able to keep her job at the Order. She couldn't keep her identity secret if she was Alpha.

My feelings about is that she is probably embarrassed about facing Kate and more specifically Raphael due to her torn loyalties with the Order and the shifters. I think she will be facing a similar crossroads that Kate faced and she has to choose and I agree Ted will find out sooner or later and I suspect that deep down he knows that Andrea is a shifter especially after that Loup attack with her partner.

I really hope she works things out with Raphael and she is going to have to face a lot more later when her is secret is known with other shifters. I feel for her but I don't think the Order especially the people who are running it will have the shifter's best interests at heart and they might even join forces with Roland especially since he is trying to get rid of them.

Okay, I'll try. Given the peroration from Ted on what constitutes "human", I really don't see the Order joining forces with the People. In Magic Burns, didn't the Order pull everyone out - except Andrea - leaving the weres and the People to face the Fomorians because of something Roland was up to?

There, did that work?

Can we still speculate about the nature of Curran's beast? I have an idea I'd like to toss around.

Sure, why not?

I don't want to write the great American novel. I want to write the great American beach read. It pays better!

Okay. Panthera leo spelaea, the cave lion. Makes modern lions look puny. Here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panthera_leo_spelaea

Supposedly stood better than 5 ft tall at the shoulder (gulp). Now extinct - in our world, anyway - but the author(s) have been hinting for some time that Curran's magic goes way back, so when I first read the description of him, I got suspicious.

What do y'all think?
