there was a part in MC that was talking about Dr. Warren - typo there, it was supossed to be Dr. Wallace i'm guessing because he was what the paragraph was about :D i haven't read IK yet but i will allert you of any errors i may find as nicely as possible :D ;D  we all make mistakes and most of the time you know what the author was thinking ::) :D

I'm a fairly relaxed reader, and the only repeating spelling error that I caught in IK was "judgement."

(I hope I can say this now, as people see the book...)

You should have seen the ARC: on the top of every other page, it said "IORN KISSED"!  That was fun.

However, shouldn't you correct 25 or more to read:  "25 or more   -->   Hard core grammar Nazi. There ARE not that many errors, and I can end a sentence with a preposition if I want to!"

Actually, posts about spelling and grammer are required to have at least one mistake; its a Rule.

Finished IRON KISSED yesterday and, boy, I loved it! Zee sounds much more natural, too. Well done!

Because I loved it so much and it's clear Patty had much more confidence using German bits, I hate it all the more to be a party pooper.

On page 51 Mercy uses the word "Mettalzauber" to explain which kind of fae Zee is. In this word are two mistakes.
A "Zauber" is an enchantment or a spell (also glamour). The caster of such a spell (or enchantment) would be a "Zauberer" - a wizard/sorcerer/warlock.
And the German word for metal is "Metall" and not "Mettal".

So Zee would be a "Metallzauberer" and not a "Mettalzauber".

I guess, you can't catch each and every mistake even with German minions at your back.  ;)

I guess that means the Auto-Zauber title on the forums is wrong, too :)

Our German specialist, Michael Bock, just wrote Patty today and complained that we hadn't run ALL the German words by him, and specifically pointed out this same word.  Sure enough, it wasn't on the list of words and phrases he'd been sent.  So, in the interest of fairness, Michael didn't make a mistake, we did!

I read IK and I didn't even noticed that Adam's color changed. Heck, I didn't even know that was Adam. I thought it was a different wolf of Adam's that Mercy didn't know about. *shrugs* 'Course I was reading it fast. I need to re-read them so bad!

And that was kind of a funny story.  It's a common myth.  Patty wrote it into the story, and myself and at least one other early reader told her that glass didn't actually thicken at the bottom.  Patty decided to leave it in anyway -- I suspect as a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor.   Sometimes she does things like that . . .. ;D 

Good catch Cikea!
