Oh, there could be some moderately powerful part-fae (like Tad) who is running it now, either in a deal with Uncle Mike, or having stepped into the void as an opportunist. 
Or, since fae magic hasn't stopped working, perhaps there's a hiding glamor on it, too.

Although Fae aren't usually heavily attached to to things in the mundane world, Uncle Mike (and possibly his staff) might have walked off & left it for the first curious mundane to walk into, keys in the door, tossed on the bar, or whatever.  Fae are unpredictable like that.  Just beware fairy gifts...

Well, that sure shuts down any speculation Patti!  *sigh*  You could have let us have a 'little' fun with it!   9)

What?  Those are just a couple of speculations of mine.  It could be your outlaw bikers who walked in, or it could be suddenly a goth dance & drink club.  Or maybe a few homeless families moved into it.

Mercy referred to the silver as needing to be cleaned up, but it tarnished so fast as to indicate it was quite pure.  Shouldn't it have been sold to pay back Marsillia for her car, or for the repairs to the Sandoval apartment, or something, rather than being discarded?

Clean up does not mean discarded. And with the silver prices as low as they are right now, it probably wouldn't pay for much.

True. Perhaps Gabriel could hold on to it. The Wolves wouldn't want to.

Or perhaps Ariana could get some. She is good with silver isn't she 9)

Or Todd could use some.

Both options of what to do with it. *nods*

I love it when I finally figure out what I missed the first few times.... due to reading too fast and/or being dense and clueless.

Last night, when reading Frost Burned again, I saw Kyle's comment to Mercy in a new light. After Mercy threw up the silver and told Kyle she could talk to Adam though the bond, Kyle repeated it and was relieved. He said he had been afraid he was crazy. Initially, I read that as thinking he'd misheard Mercy and no, he'd heard her correctly so he was not going crazy. He was making it a bit of a joke to relieve the tension as he learned about more pack magic. But THIS time, I figured out that he was really saying he thought he'd been hearing Warren talk to him via their mating bond and had thought he was going crazy. Now that he knows that communication between mates via their bonds is normal, he's relieved.

I'm posting here for the benefit of other clueless readers like me who miss this stuff the first several times though and finally get it a lot later.  :-[

Alrighty, listening to the audiobook at the gym today, and got to Adam calling Elizaveta for clean-up. He mentions that witches can deal with bodies, but can't repair objects. Now, I was remembering In Red With Pearls, and Warren sees her granddaughter fix a windowpane with blood. So....is this more of that supernatural misinformation, a continuity issue, or some other breed of creature?

Hey - wasn't driving this time when stray thoughts hit me, at least  LOL
I assumed it would have to do with the quantity of the marks and damage, rather then an inability to fix it. I mean, why go to all that effort to fix something when there are easier ways to do so (burning down). Also they had a time crunch, with a helicopter landing the next day. It's also very easy to miss small details so the fire would be more likely to destroy everything where as magic might leave clues as to what actually happened.

So I was in a Barnes and Noble two days ago, and happened to pick up and read Faerie Gifts in Naked City. And you know, it was about a vampire called Thomas Hao. That seemed vaguely familiar to me, so today I checked Frost Burned, and Lo and behold, the vampire ally that Marsilia calls is also a Chinese vampire named Thomas Hao. Interesting!
