We need to have some kind of meditation available on the board to help us through these waiting periods.  ;D

This is the first short story we've had of a main character from the Mercy 'verse in their POV. I'm so glad it's Warren.  I cannot wait either.

The little blurb doesn't say, if Kyle is in on the problem. Can you think of the two of them together coming up with a twisty revenge? >D

(By the way Star of David was told from David Christensen's point of view.)

I don't really consider David as a main character though. More secondary, for me anyway.

I totally agree, Kyle and Warren are a pretty unstoppable team.  >D

I'd say Warren is secondary, repeating, David is tertiary.  My POV, not a ruling, obviously! ;)

We have Patti's Place for meditation, relaxing in the hot tub and general fooling around.  I think that's supposed to help us through the waits. ;D 9)

When I'm good I am real good  >D , When I'm bad I'm even better :-whistle

And don't forget discovering new authors! I find that new addictions help pass the time between books.

New authors always helps! But so does wildly guessing and seeing how close we come.


I can't WAIT for this one. I've always loved Warren and Kyle, and it'll be nice to see a glimpse into their lives outside of the pack. And I sorta feel sorry for Warren's neighbors. I'm sure they're going to get WAY more than they bargined for messing with the two of them.

I totally agree, Ultie. They're such a great team. I want to see more of that and just see the two of them and how they live together. Such a long wait for this one, it's gonna be good though!

I'm dying to read this one.  I really want to see inside Warren's head.

I cannot express how much I love this story. I adore Warren, I have from the first time he showed up in Moon Called. After Mercy and Adam he's my favorite and he just shines in this story.  :-LOVE

Without giving anything away, can you tell if it before or after he met Mercy or Kyle?

Down These Strange Streets came in the mail today.  Finished "In Red, With Pearls" a bit ago. 

WARNING!  SPOILERS UNDER BLACK BARS!  DON'T READ UNTIL YOU'VE READ THE STORY! 

DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU!


 Given that we're much more familiar, obviously, with the internal dialogue between Charles and Brother Wolf, it's interesting to see how the relationship works with someone else.  Warren refers to his wolf as separate from himself (for instance, when he claims Kyle as his mate, which, BTW, *HAPPYDANCE*) and when he uses the wolf to throw off Nadia's spell, we get a little glimpse of it and see that it does exist independent of the human consciousness, but for the most part Warren-the-human is who we're dealing with. 

And, more interesting than that, he's not doing that constant balancing act that both Charles and Adam (from what I can tell of Adam) seem to get stuck in when they feel their loved ones are threatened.  Warren got shot and didn't pull out the wolf until he realized that Nadia had him stuck in place with a spell.  He was already in a stressful situation - someone is trying to kill his mate!  Yet he reacts calmly and logically, and kills with cool efficiency. 

...in the Fair Game speculation thread, Patti suggested Charles deserves an assistant.  I vote we nominate Warren for the job.
