I just last night realized something about Anna's growth, too.
She did a sort of analysis of "there are three of them, that's a pack," and on from there.  She's starting to think more easily of things in relationship to being a werewolf.  The villains aren't werewolves, of course, but they are predators, and as such have a predator pack mentality, which she noticed and used in helping to find and deal with them.  Do you suppose she could or would have done that immediately after "Hunting Ground"?  I suspect not.  My reasoning is that she hadn't had enough time and experience in a well run pack - I hesitate to say "healthy" with Bran's bunch of psychos  LOL - at that time to have really gotten into the dynamics.  My impression is that she had absolutely as little to do with any of Leo's pack as she could manage for her first three years.

Could only read the past two pages of the discussion because of how annoying the spoiler tags are. They don't make much sense either, this being a spoiler thread.

It is hard to read, I agree. :) We only spoiler bar a book for the first month of it's release, this usually gives the majority of readers the chance to get through their copy and discuss without accidentally spoiling members who access new posts over directly entering the threads.

As Patti mentioned only the first page of this thread and the last two pages still have their bars but they'll be removed on April 6th, a month after the release date of Fair Game. Which should make it easier to track the discussion.

Is there a transcript of the Seattle Q&A? It’s just much easier for me to read whatever than to watch a video.

And in response to a discussion some pages back about the wolf part of the werewolves, I think that not all wolves would be able to think/speak even as clearly as Sam or Anna’s wolf. Sam can, just because he’s over 1000 years old, and Anna’s wolf is an omega. I think most wolves are just ‘beasts’ and probably only those that are over a certain age can even communicate if thaey ‘take over.’
Please Check These Out!

Don't know of a transcript, sorry.  You might PM to either Has or Elle, as the ones who find the links for most of the interviews.

Fair Game has been out for a month. All the spoiler bars have been removed from this thread. Using them this first month was just a courtesy to make sure no one got accidentally spoiled. Feel free to continue the discussion but leave off using the spoiler bars. Thanks all!

I had another thought - Alastair couldn't help his daughter's knee injury, but I wonder if that was lack of ability or restricted ability - now he's free to do what he likes I wonder if he could help her now?

I doubt it; other fairly major healings have been done in the Mercyverse in the past few "years" without consequence to the Fae; I think he honestly doesn't have access to the magics needed, or isn't willing to pay the price.  Or have Lizzie pay it.  Consider what Baba Yaga did for Mary Jo and the results TO Mary Jo.  Not so good for a dancer to suddenly collapse, now is it?

True, also there might be a difference in magic. His magic might not work for healing. This is what I assumed anyway, that he would have had to get some other fey with healing magic to do the healing and for whatever reason that did not happen. Wether it was a question of logistics or power play.

"Fair Game" page 233
"Healing is among the great magics and we have very few healers among us -- and most of them are even less trustworthy than Treasach's gift would be."

Yup. That is what I vaguely had in mind.

Ah, so even if he could lean on them now with his extra power, it wouldn't be a good idea to do so. Good point about Mary Jo too, she's not at all happy with her 'gift' of life.

Did anyone ever wonder if  Lee Jennings of  pg. 90  "Have you ever worked with Lee Jennings?The guy the Behavioral Analysis Unit sends to interview nasty guys in prison?" might be a potential omega?

Maybe it'll come up in the next book. Or it could just be left hanging there.
