I think that both the human and wolf part  of Asil wanted to die. Since the mate bond still existed yet his wife was dead he had no way to heal after her death. And that many years (?how many again?) of severe emotional pain is definitely not a good thing for either half of him.

I think he will now go through his grieving period, then think aobut courting Sage.

I wonder a bit, given the way some of the other male and dominant wolves affect the human sides of them, that Asil's wolf wasn't pushier about that before.  Unless it felt that remnant of Sarai as still being mated?

I think your right about that, I think Asil's wolf knew it was still mated or else after 200+ years it would have indeed found another mate by then. I think because Asil's mate bond gift was empathy his wolf felt his mate and knew she was not gone. Remember It was Sarai's human form and spirit that was gone not the wolf's so even though Asil knew his Sarai was gone his wolf knew that her wolf was not. I hope that's making sense.

This is a really interesting theory.  I never even considered the 2 of them as anything other than friends, but who knows!  What I would like to see though is more of what Sage's role is in the community.  We know that she's single, she dominant, and she has the trust of both Bran and Charles.  But there are so many mysteries about her!  Like when Charles let her call him Charlie and stated that she is the only wolf who can get away with that.  Why?  Also, how does an unmated, dominant werewolf fit into the pack?  Where is she in the pecking order if she is supposed to take her "rank" based off of her mate?  I've wondered that with Mary Joe too.

For the Charlie vs Charles thing I had thought that was more personality based. You knowhow some people can say anything without offense as long as they smile when they say it? Saomething like that.

I got the impression that Asil could be romantically interested in Sage; I think we know that he considers her attractive.  It's been a while since I read CW, but I remember thinking at the time that there might be something there.  Sage obviously cares about Asil, but it remains to be seen whether it's as a favorite Uncle, or something romantic.

As far as Sage's place in the pack, I thought it was very interesting that she seems to be kind of the "go-to" wolf.  Sent to keep an eye on Asil (maybe?), then sent to keep Anna company/take care of her after the funeral.  She's got Bran's and Charles' respect at least.  How did she get it?  What's her background?  I hope we do see more of her in the subsequent books.  Knowing exactly what her place is and how she got there would be interesting indeed.

Too bad we have to wait a while for the next book!

I had noticed that too mimi. I would also love to know more of her backgroudn and how she got their respect. After all, she is an unmated female so therefore low in the pack structure. Though Bran and Charles seem willing to overlook little details like that at times.

I'm thinking she has some money/power of her own, from the 'human' world.

Money, sure, but what power in the human world woudl also translate into power in the pack?

Abdicated or tossed out.  Or pushed the country over to some form of democracy.

You got me; that's a technical question for someone with more book larnin' than I done got.  Also, if the country ceased to exist; are you still royalty then?  Or if you're the ex-spouse of royalty, like Fergie?
