I know, but she will be publishing stuff between now and then, and my mind might change when I stop being a broke college student, and have more time to read.  Most of the reading that I have been doing is new books by my favorite authors as they come out and books that my best friend/roommate hands to me.  Since college started, (not including the break where I was at home and things that I have read for class), I have read 5 books: Iron Kissed, the Vaneyal books by Mercedes Lackey, and re-read The God Eaters by Jesse Hajiceck.  I've felt somewhat book deprived, but I haven't had the time for much more.

OMG. 

i admit i really really enjoyed reading the Mercy books, which is the reason that i even started reading dragon bones.  but i really didnt expect to like that book anywhere near as much as i did.  too often the books beyond the first one you read by an author never fully live up to the first one read.  however much praise this book deserves, i fear i cannot give it.  i'm making this post short because, although, i felt i had to show my appriciation for such a fine work of literature, i must now go so that i may begin dragon blood.  :P  suffice it to say that the book was well appriciated and well loved.  (also a must read for ppl who appriciate this genre of books)

Heres to looking forward to the second book of the series.

Glad you enjoyed it/them. This series is my favorite out of her works mainly because of the characterization.  I find the elements that tie together to shape Ward to be fascinating!

I just wanted to say that this set of books (Dragon Bones/Dragon Blood) is my favorite of all   :D :-LOVE... I really hope some day Patricia continues the storyline.  I love so many of the characters and want to know what happens to them! For now they just get to live on in my imaginiation.  8)

Dragon Bones was the very first book I read by Patricia.  I think I read it at least monthly.  If I've had a hard day (and as a PhD research student there are a lot of those) its the book I pick up to relax me.  I just love it!
And would really love there to be more books in the series....
Although the Mercy and Alpha and Omega books are very close second....
And all the rest actually - can never get enough!

I bought Dragon Bones and Dragon Blood about a year ago for a road trip and they've been in my TBR pile since.  I bought them because Patty wrote them and I love her Mercy Thompson series.  I've never read straight fantasy, just urban fantasy.  I finally read these books last week and had one question for myself.  Why in the hell did it take you so long to read these awesomely fantastic books you idiot?  Needless to say I totally loved them and definetly want more.  Ward is just wonderful, Oreg is my favorite, and I don't have the words to describe the greatness that is Tisala.  I'm pushing them on my fellow readers.  Because of these two I checked out and read up on Raven's Shadow/Strike and am buying them the next chance I get.

I'm glad you finally picked them up! Any favorite Dragon Bones moments? I think I really enjoyed the reveals to Ward's family when they realized all that time he had been "hiding" such a great story. Ward is my favorite for sure then Oreg. I think they're up for re-read. :D

I meant Dragon Bones was a great story. Great book would probably have been better. My bad.  LOL

Yes, definitely "Great Book!"(s!).  I agree with Elle - time for a re-read!  I've very much enjoyed Mercy's world, and am really looking forward to Silver Borne, but I can't wait until she gets back to Ward and the Hurog world.
