The following are Questions/Answers pertaining to errors found in the books

ID Card:

N/A

Characters
  • Adam
  • Charles
    • Charles vs. Sam - dominance
    • My question is really just nit picking. In Iron Kissed Mercy says I'd never seen Charles drive a car (pg 83) but a few pages later while she is talking to Samuel she remembers "So while Samuel waited for me, Charles was driving me down to Libby ..." (pg 90) . I probably just read it wrong but it confuses me. How could Charles have driven Mercy to the train station if she has never seen him drive Chat 2008-05-16
      • Me -- that is an error on my part.

  • Charles changing - Potential error, unconfirmed.

    • "Yep." "That hurts," Anna agreed. "This is why, if you're around a recently change werewolf - either direction - you walk softly for awhile. Pain makes the best of us pretty cranky. - Describing Charles change FG-156

Books
  • Blood Bound
    • Uncle Mike to Mercy:  That demon sorcerer bears carries violence like a stream carries little fishies. BB-149
      • Should be either "bears" or "carries", but not both.
    • Aspen Springs typo instead of Aspen CreekBB-159
  • Cry Wolf
    • Potential continuity error

      • "He threw down the shears again..." CW-170
  • Hunting Ground
    • "...St Stephen being crucified - upside down, as tradition holds." HG-142
      • Should be St. Peter not St. Stephen.
  • River Marked
    • "....female werewolves were few and far between: Adam's pack only had two." RM-274
      • This is an error and should have said three.
    • "...most of the ghosts I've seen have all been human." RM-55
      • Potentially meant to be either, most or all.
    • Potential name switch error
      • "Calvin Seeker was leaning against a chain-link fence when we parked..." RM-135
      • "There was a sign behind Gordon, but I couldn't read it." RM-135
        • Gordon is not in the scene

    • Potential continuity error
      • "In the next years' group of victims, Charles recognized two of the three." FG-61
        • The implication is that this is for 1985
      • "Charles knew three of the victims in 1985..." FG-62
    • Potential continuity error
      • Goldstein is described as being in his fifties FG-56
      • In reference to Leslie - "She might be in her mid-forties..." FG-37
      • Goldstein -  "Here's where we came in, the FBI - it was before my time.  I first hit this case as a rookie in 2000." FG-61
        • If the book is set around 2012 this would mean that in 2000 Goldstein would be in his forties and Leslie early thirties. This could either be a continuity error or they both entered the FBI as older rookies through internal or external movement/enlistment.
  • Silence Fallen
    • Potential error
      • "Ariana, silver-borne fae who…" SF-368
        • The Silver Borne generally refers to the artifact created by Ariana rather than Ariana who has an affinity for silver.

Error at the end of Silence Fallen, Cast of Characters, Friends and Foe, last entry:
”Ariane, silver-borne fae who…”
Ariane isn`t silver borne but made the fae artifact the Silver Borne.

Proof:
SB chapter 12 paperback page 232:
Ariane… “forged it of silver and magic and her blood”
FB chapter 2 paperback page 26:
“The Silver Borne was an artifact that she`d created”
