Wolfsbane Discussion
« on: November 02, 2010, 08:30:37 am »
I finished reading Wolfsbane about three hours after it came out,since I bought the kindle version. I am highly intrigued by the actual Dreamer, and the fact that the Master Spells were basically destroyed in Steal the Dragon. And was there a hint of Aralorn in Steal the Dragon, when Rialla mentions somebody teaching her the game.

What a wonderful read!

]I loved Aralorn's family. Wolf had a fantastic arc and the Wolf/Aralorn relationship development was quite delicious! I'm quite intrigued by the Dreamer as well.

I liked Nevyn's comment about how evil destroyed him but tempered Wolf. The visits to the death goddess' temple were interesting as well.

Yes, it seems that this series needs sequels all over the place.

I'm perfectly willing to pressure her.  If she's going to taunt us with that last bit about the Dreamer and its plans, then she should expect to be pressured.  LOL LOL LOL >D

Wolfsbane does seem to have set us up for future stories. I like how Masques and Wolfsbane filled out the Sianim worldview very well. There is also a lovely argument about the freedom of knowldge running through Wolfsbane. Wolf is firmly of the opinion that knowledge of bad things should be suppressed. His experience has taught him if you know something bad you will use it for bad purposes. He has no problem destroying books of black magic. Sham in When Demond Walk is in desperate need of this sort of information to rid the world of "evil." She searches libraries for this destroyed knowledge. It is as if there is an argument running through the series. Now this could all be in my head and someone else could have a very different interpretation.

I agree with Ellyll, that last little bit at the end does leave us hanging just a bit; but does fantasy need to have a nice, cut and dry ending?  I think Patti just wanted to give us something to think about, and remind us that all will never be perfect in any world, even one that's been imagined.  Kind of like "realistic fantasy," art imitating life, maybe?  Gosh, why am I so philosophical on a Saturday afternoon?! :-whistle

On the other hand, maybe she wanted to leave herself an opening for another book? 

In any event, please do more Mercy and A&O first!!!!

I love the way she developed Wolf and Aralorn's relationship. The scene in the temple was especially good.  :-LOVE.

You have three choices, KissaD.  There are instructions on using the spoiler bars posted several places, and you can check those, if I'm not clear here. (choice 1)
You can manually type them in, like this (without the *) [*spoiler]what you want to hide[*/spoiler] (choice 2)
You can get up the full fledged "reply box" and click the two buttons that say "spoilers" across the width of both, and type between the ] and the [ on them.  (choice 3)  Hope that helps!
