I just read The Hob's Bargain and loved it! I wish there was a sequel, because I adore Caefawn. Who knew a tail could be so cute, and have so much personality? I'd love to see more about his and Aren's romance, but it does work well as a stand-alone. I picked it up on a whim because the back said "Beauty and the Beast" and I love those types of stories, especially ones like Rose Daughter that someone just mentioned. I'm one of the ones who has always wished the Beast would have stayed a beast instead of an turning into an annoying prince in the Disney version. Now I need to go out and read the rest of Patty Brigg's books!

Hobs Bargain was my first Patricia Briggs book, and I was hooked!  You will enjoy all the rest of them too!

My re-read has revived my love for the Hob's tail. It's totally another character in this story and it's fun to read about it's adventures in aiding Caefawn in his courtship of Aren. :D

Elle, I love that flirtatious tail, too!!
I'm also curious to see how the whole Kith-Wandel thing ends! Can't imagine Wandel actually killing Kith...
Not quite finished with the book, but will be by Saturday, ready for the chat.

I have a question about Rook and Quillar they appear to be Sheildmates are they? I want how mad the River guardian is going to be.

This was the first of Patty's books that I read. I saw Blood Bound first but the cover was a little... suggestive? I have a whole wack of little siblings who read my books so I have to be careful :(. So I got The Hob's Bargain for an idea of Patty's style... and absolutely fell in love ;D. A sequel would be neat but I agree that Aren and Caefawn should not be the main characters, they are in the "happily ever after" stage. Unless, of course, Patty can think of a plot that would not detract from what is already written ;D?

Just wanted to say that I spotted Hob's Bargain at Wal-Mart in it's spiffy new cover. :)

I think i own all of Patty's books now.. other than the first Sianim book.. sorry $120 is a little steep for a used book for me :)  I just got Hob's Bargain this past weekend.. read it Saturday.. wonderful. And yes.. i want to know what happens to Aren and Caefawn.    I"ll probably re-read it this week...  since i just re-read the whole Mercy series again Monday and Tuesday.  I just can't get enough of these characters.

I loved this book!  I am new to the forums and this site, I just logged in because I just finished the book, and was looking for info on a sequel.  I sure hope she writes one, I loved Caefawn!

Welcome, pyxie!  Regrettably, Caefawn & Co. probably won't get a sequel any time soon.  But we have a lot of fun with him anyway.  Poke around & find some of the other stuff about the Hob.  And all the other fun characters & worlds Our Hostess has invented.

OH My!! ok i just joined today.. I love all of Patricia Briggs books that i have bought and read.. definitely like the Mercy series.. BUT BUT BUT!!!!!! The Hob's Bargain.. i love it. I couldnt put the book down. I want more. I want to see a sequel. LOL. The end is open to several different possibilities. I can see some survivors making it to Fallbrook and running across a child with red eyes and a tail.. that would be cute.  Many different ways this could go. But i would love to see a sequel. The joining of the two could be were it gets "hot and heavy".

Positing overlapping worlds -  how about a story with Sham - from When Demons Walk collaborating with Arin and the Hob.  Sham and the Hob appear to have a compatible sense of mischief, and I think that she and Arin would get along rather well.

I just finished the hobs bargain I read it twice back to back..yeah, its that good, I loved it. I have been reading alot this summer cause the kids are home from school and when they play outside i sit out and read, it was such a wonderful story.  I would love it if there was a series, but its good as a stand alone story also.  well guess thats all, just wanted to rave for a minute.  So far everything i have read of patricia briggs, i have loved, now im off to read when demons walk.
