She's supposed to be in her 40's and he is late 60's or 70, so he would have been 40's somewhere.

Thanks big city wolf! I don't know why that's been bugging me but now I'm wondering how they met. After all Adam was a grown mature adult with a decent amount of life experience, more than most even, and she was just a girl recently out of high school it seems.

It would seem so.  I never thought about that before but it is quite an age range.

Not for werewolves.  Not the successful ones.

Although it does leave you wondering; was Adam married earlier?  Is he a widower?  What WAS he doing for snu-snu before marrying Christie?

Just seems odd she would basically be a child I'm curious to see what first interested him. Maybe he went to her house to install some security systems for her parents, and she answered the door in her school uniform or cheerleading and he had a Britney spears moment.

A few thoughts on this...  we don't know what job Adam had at the time, he may or may not have already started his business, or working for someone who had one similar, but really, he could have been doing just about anything.  It sounds like he was either in the Los Alamos pack or possibly already the Alpha of it though and there is a big military population down there so that's some part of an answer to why he'd be there. 

Having spent some time around military areas, *cough* and judging from what we know of Christy's personality, her 'prowling' for a young (as Adam seemed) and attractive military guy wouldn't be out of the question.  Keep in mind that I'm not using the word prowling as a necessarily bad thing, I've watched it play out and it's a pretty natural sort of thing.  Can't say I blame any 18 year old girl near military installations for looking for young, healthy guys with a regular paycheck etc. 

I suspect that Christy might have amped it up a notch, but it still isn't meant in an evil way.  If she turned on the charm, or perhaps got into a situation she was in over her head with some young GI, in some fairly innocent way on her part... (sort of), I'm sure we could all picture Adam coming to her rescue and his dominant nature would mean he'd have to protect her, and if she latched onto him and nature took its course, well, that wouldn't be odd at all.

That would be a possibility, all right.

Was that supposed to have been "Add the fact that Adam can't tell her he(was) is a werewolf and watch things go bang!" before your software interfered?

Hah, I'm beginning to get the pattern of 'improvements' it makes.

I'm still feeling that the cover has little to nothing to do with the contents of this book.  It's cool, but...

Yeah, unless you count that walk she took with Coyote.

Don't remember her having any kind of pack, and was the stick being stick or spear at that time?

It was a stick at the time, and you are right about there being no pack.

So we're getting a POV from Adam in Shifting shadows? I wonder which scenes we'll get from his point of view, or if we'll end up getting several.
