I think as long as Mercy doesnt take the stick for granted I think it will be okay. I think the stick will cause something with the pack! She is co alpha and I wonder what the pack and matebond will also be affected. She is a coyote after all and they attract chaos and mayhem :D

Hm. You know, the stick causes sheep to have twins. Maybe it will cause the pack to start having twins? :D

I don't want to write the great American novel. I want to write the great American beach read. It pays better!

Well...Mercy was a "sheep," at least for a little while.  While she and Adam had sex, at least, she was still Stefan's "sheep."  (The blood-bond between Stefan and Mercy was broken at the end by Blackwood's feeding on her again.)

You know thats a really interesting point- its like Mercy is at the centre of all these type of bonds and magic- vampire/werewolf/even fae with the stick and the cup. They all affected her but what if she somehow affects them back in some ways. Blackwood fed on her to gain control of ghosts, and I wonder if Stefan got a temporary boost in powers about that.

The interesting developments is definitely going to be the pack and the mate bond though :D

I just wanted to acknowledge that Sam needs a bit of good news on the romance front eventually to prevent a very ugly descent into despondency and madness.  Since he deserves better than that, consider the fairy godmother duly summoned, with her magic wand fully charged.

Which was just perfect, Mike.  (Hence the startling glomp.  ;) )  For the rest of it, I've never been disappointed by one of Patty's stories yet, so I don't expect I will be this time.  Just think how boring it would be to read stories where you already know how they're going to turn out!  :)

On a totally separate note, about the walking stick.  Was I the only person who thought it might have healed Mercy after Blackwood beat her up and she thought he might kill her?  She was holding the stick for a long time, and then she was much less badly hurt than she expected to be. 
Dear Lord, be good to me.  The sea is so wide, and my boat is so small.

Oh...I credited the mate-bond for that.  Werewolves heal quickly, so I thought that Mercy was picking up on some of the pack-mojo through the mate-bond, and that was why the bruises were fading even as she watched them.

That is what I was thinking Nifty!!!

Or it could be the vampire blood- but I think Mercy might use the pack bond/mate bond in a similar way that Mariposa shared with Asil's mate.

I was thinking too it was the vampire influence both Blackwood sucking on her neck and Stefan. *shivers*

Well...the only reason I didn't think it was the vampire influence was that (my understanding was that) Blackwood severed Stefan's bond with Mercy when he started feeding off her again (the 2nd time).  And Mercy severed Blackwood's bond with her when she killed him.  So at the end of the book, she's no longer tied to either vampire, and is only tied to Adam and the wolves.

But it could still be a factor though because she fed from the blood- it more like a cell regeneration thing?
This is so a question for Patty - but I bet we get the evil grin lol

Yeah, count me among those who thought she healed faster because she had just taken in Blackwood's blood. But the other possibilities are intriguing as well.

Maybe it has been a mix of all three?
