Charles' age
« on: April 27, 2012, 03:59:47 pm »
Hi Patty.  I adore all your books, started off with the Hurog Duology, and then found Mercy and Anna.

Every time I read one I think I like it best, then I read another and come to the same decision.  :D

Anyway, in two of the Mercy Thompson books, it states that Charles is Bran's older son.  But in the Alpha and Omega series, it makes it sound like he is the younger son.

Could you clarify the birth order?

Hi  :)
The books that state Charles is the elder are typos. He's Bran's younger son. I'll throw a link in here to Patty's post that mentions it. Just on my phone now but will do it tonight.

Hi, Tamarphelan.  I'm not the author, but I have an answer for you.
This is Samuel's ID card from the canon area:

This is Charles' ID card:

As you can see, Charles is almost 2 centuries old, while Samuel's exact age is currently unknown, but roughly five times greater.  This was a simple editing error through not having the ID cards at hand when the stories were written & edited the first time.

Beat you too it, Elle. LOL
