That's cause you read the chapters online before you got to the book, so you had LOT'S of time to speculate in your head.

If you had only read about them in the beginning, then read the book right away you wouldn't have had a problem (probably)  ;)

I probably would have forgotten about them completly.  9) Because they don't make a significant appearance besides that for quite a while.

It's a misdirection on Patty's part. Make you think the vampires are the baddies, so you don't think about who really is behind it all! Arthur and Dana who are both introduced as allies!

I hate to be a spoil sport here, but I have a question...did anyone else think it was wierd for a FRESH water fae to be living in a houseboat on SALT water?  Patty even mentioned that she couldn't pull energy from salt water or something like that when Charles was in the water after the fight.  Shouldn't she be living on Lake Michigan or Lake Superior or something?  GIANT freshwater lakes.  IF you were a fae, and could live anywhere you wanted, would you choose to live where you could have the most power, or someplace that teases you, "Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink" kind of thing. 

I think the setting for HG in Seattle was perfect and I really enjoyed the book, but if I were Nimue, I wouldn't be living on salt water.

I hate that I only mention negatives.  I'm sure that Patty had a good reason for doing what she did.  I just don't know it, and becasue of that, it seems wrong somehow.  Again, I loved the book.  I loved looking deeper into Bran, Charles, and Anna.  I loved finding out more about Omega powers.  I think Patty is really doing a good job with keeping both series in the same world, but different plot lines.  I do want them to combine someday, but that can be in the future.

That question never even registered in my brain   LOL
It's probably a good question for the Ask Patty section though. I'm curious to see the answer.

Didn't the troll say they (the fae) will send someone to pick them up ?

I am guessing the troll is not one of the iron handling fae.

I think Seattle has  a lake, or a river or something... I assumed she was on a freshwater lake or river near the sea...

now that you mention it, I'm not sure.

Or he did not want to be the one to have to keep these powerful objects. There seems to be more to having powerful fae stuff than just keeping it from being stolen....

They said that about the walking stick too, yes, but the troll said: "Now I'm supposed to ask you to watch over those a little bit longer. Someone will be along to collect them later. Someone else." p. 283
