Gloves, clothes, upholstery, paneling, aluminum, fiberglass.  Or one of the iron handlers.

Remember the SERRAted edge books by Mercedes Lackey.  They worked on lots of aluminum in cars so fae could handle them.
We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!

One thing she didn't mention, even in downtown where most of the action happens, there are plenty of fallen leaves on the ground, and running in that is slithery.  There could have been more of that in there, with the running here & there, a bit of slither on decaying leaves.

Didn't the book events occur in December? Shouldn't all the leaves be gone by then? ???

Not while I've lived here.

Huh, you learn something new every day. I had trouble picturing leaves, cause in Calgary in December, everything is brown or white. Either were buried in snow or the grass is dead with no leaves.

Okay, back on topic...

Seattle doesn't get snow in December?

It was a Porshe, which are still made of steel.  He mentioned something about many layers of paint.  I'd have to find the page reference -- but we're derailed from HG :)

sorry, as one who lives on the other side of the continent, I have no idea what Seattle is like.  I just assumed that she was in a houseboat on the sound, which would be salt water. 

I still stand by my thought that if I was a very powerful water fae, the last place I would live would be next to a salt water ocean.  I would choose one of the great lakes, or a reservour, or some other large body of fresh water.  meh.  It's Patty's character, she can live wherever she wants...it just struck me funny is all.

Seattle has a rough - very rough - hourglass shape.  Puget Sound salt water on the right (west), Lake Union through roughly the middle, and Lake Washington bordering the entire eastern side.

Well, was he wearing that same jacket he gave them at the end? If he had that, and pants between his bum and the bridge maybe it wouldn't affect him? Is it direct contact with iron that hurts fae or just proximity?

Yes they were told someone would pick them up....but they were never told WHEN :-LOVE! lol  looks like another story to me!  lol

Yes - me likes that idea!

I had a thought that - if this were the case - that it would be the perfect time to introduce the two storylines some, since Mercy does know her history :) But then I remembered that Patty said she would keep the two series separate? No Mercy/Anna crossover. Did I make that up?

I don't think she's planning it.  Since they are actually about 6 months to a year off, it would be really hard to meet up the way she has it right now.  I would love to see Anna through Mercy's eyes tho.  And vice versa.

I just went through Anna's meeting with the Italian Omega, did anybody else wonder if his backstory is meant to remind of the Ötzi affair?

In case you don' know what I'm talking about (not sure how much of that is known outside of Europe):
Ötzi is a mumified body they found in the Alps in a border region and Austria and Italy had a quarrel over possession rights.

So, how rare are Omegas? Are there only two in the entire world at this point? Ric and Anna?
