Speculation Mercy #12 SMOKE BITTEN
« on: March 22, 2019, 01:43:02 pm »
Mercy and Patty have been having long conversations about Mercy #12 (out in 2020), so Patty can do proper justice to the book! I can't share the details yet, but we do have a working title, and the amazing and incredibly talented Daniel Dos Santos is hard at work on the cover art already for SMOKE BITTEN!

I just saw this on facebook and rushed over to share.  LOL  My first thought was vampires, because they traditionally turn into smoke. But not in the Mercy books. Maybe Joel or Adian do something?

My first thought for 'Smoke' was smudging, and then went to wonder if there will be skinwalkers involved.

I like the shushing idea. I don't feel like it is aggressive enough to be paired with bitten, though.

Where did you get "shushing", Zee? ???

Smudging. Darn autocorrect!

'Smudging' and 'bitten' don't really mix, no, but perhaps an equivalent process used from the evil side exists.

I'm not going that way in my thoughts.  I'm thinking how smoke can bite into the lungs.

Thinking of Frost Burned, what if we're dealing with a werewolf or vampyre named Smoke?

Maybe there is someone (vampire, fae, werewolf) in the smoke and bites.
If it is a werewolf, than one we know might be changed.
Possibly candidates are Kyle, Gabriel, Jesse, Tony, Silvia.
I thing Kyle is the most likely candidate, but Silvia would be cool.
Just think of it! Mercy had ones (MC?) said, that Bran could be glad that Silvia isn’t a werewolf, or she would be a strong rival as Marrok, and that was not just a joke.

Is there folklore about vampires travelling as smoke?

I'm not sure.  Anne Bishop's Sanguiniti do, but that's a different ficton.

Yes, it shows up in other fiction, and I presume it's inspired by some folklore.
