[Mercy #2] Blood Bound Discussion
« on: July 20, 2007, 10:21:43 am »
I have a question about something that happened in Blood Bound.  Maybe Patty addressed this in one of the chats.

Are we going to see more of Kara, the young girl who was turned into a werewolf.  She was supposed to come to Adam, but because of the demon, she didn't.  I seem to recall that she went to Bran instead.  Are we goign to hear more about her?

I could not deprive you of the realization of all you could accomplish together, and of a friendship that will define you both in ways you cannot begin to imagine.

I found this in the first chat:
Quote
jwestberg-Will we ever hear more about John Beckworth's daughter Kara? Is Bran looking out for her?
Patty-Yes. There will be more about Kara -- and Bran is looking out for her.

I knew I read it somewhere!!!

Oh, thanks, Mandy...  That's super!

I think she's intriguing, especially in light of the fact that the transition from human to were can be so hard...and that not everyone makes it.  Yet this 13-year-old kid made it, so she must be something special.

I could see her appearing in Patty's Charles and Anna series, especially, for some reason.

If Kara ever did join Adam's pack, she'd be an instant best friend to Adam's daughter too.

Absolutely! I'm glad someone found that out. I just finished rereading Blood Bound and I kept wondering about her the entire time.

For some reason, this just got me wondering what life is going to be like for the rest of her family now.  Anna hasn't any, but Kara's got involved parents who have already had several devestating months & now have to send their beloved child away. 
It could just as easily have been boarding school or juvie prison, of course, but it isn't.
This is an even more profound change than if she'd become a parapalegic, gotten AIDS, or was declared the reincarnation of a holy man/woman. 
And this family KNOWS that not all werewolves are benign, not just because of the rogue who attacked their daughter, but because of the fact that they have to send Kara so far away to find an alpha who won't mistreat her.
And he's a reporter.

Oh, there are possibilities here.  (Slow evil grin.)

I'm hoarding it for now.  Will a sinister snicker do?  ;D

I find the character has possibilities. I'm also glad that Bran is looking out for her. I just get all goose-pimply at the thought. Sigh.  :-[

Trivia for forum readers.  Blood Bound's second printing is being released, with a very slightly different cover.  The original cover featured a close-up of Mercy's breasts on the spine.  Titillating, but a bit risque, so Patty asked her editor if it could be toned down a little.  The new cover features a slightly different cropping, which shows more of her neck and the bat tattoo.  Her editor's comment was "Blood Bound -- now with less cleavage!".   So, if you can see two bra-cups you have the original smutty version, but if you only see one bra-cup, you have the "new and improved" cover.  ;D

"Blood Bound -- now with less cleavage!". 

This made me laugh. Heh. I probably never even would have noticed the difference...but now, the next time in the book store I'll compare. :D

ha!  :D :D

Well, in twenty years or so when these books are worth a fortune, mine will be worth more because I have the original Busty Blood Bound.  ;)

I reread BB today and noticed I have the 'smutty' version and was rather excited. ^^
