Just finished reviewing Patricia Briggs's revisions to FIRE TOUCHED and it is AWESOME. I think you will love it . . . in March 2016.

For anybody who is interested, there are a few reviews about Fire touched on the Good Reads website. Just a warning though, about half way down the page there is a review that has spoilers in it that has been hidden. Don't click on it, if you don't want them.  :)

 :P Of course given that I am obsessed with Mercy and Adam, I had to look and now I can't wait to get my grubby little hands on that book.  :D


I'm sorry I didn't realise there was a Fire Touched topic already. I had originally put this in the other one, so I have copied and pasted it here as well, as I'm not sure which one it belongs in.

How long does it typically take for it to go to audiobooks?

I believe that is in the FAQ section.

I've looked and couldn't find it, although I have been known to search for my glasses only to find I was wearing them. I've found a reference to e-books, but not audiobooks.

Amazon thinks the audiobook will be out the same day as the hardback. (March 8)

Lovely.

I believe the fae in the snippet is not the major player in the book. It feels like an opening ploy. Also it being green I suspect it will not tolerate fire well.

Very good point. I have to agree, it does seem more like an an opening than a later even. I would guess second or third chapter. Enough time to have gotten the boy mentioned previously, and for the fae to react.[/spoilers]

Well, the second snippet, http://www.hurog.com/books/snippet/FireTouched2.shtml , should settle down some of those who were so angry with Adam in Night Broken.

That snippet was a long time coming, I still don't get mercy though. I mean Mary jo an others still hate her, treat her badly and would through her under the bus in a second an be happy about it, no matter how hurt she gets or almost dies for them and yet mercy defends them? I don't like that mercy allows them to walk all over her, and that they have a right to it, yes there's witty comments now an then but still....

It's because Mercy understands that their actions reflect who they are, and her own actions reflect who she is. She refuses to compromise on her morals and sink to their level. She continues to take the high road, and if they ever get a clue, they can climb up and walk it with her. Way better than Mercy grubbing in the gutter just for a petty payback. She is setting a sterling example as pack leader.
