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.

I just re-read this, and I don't think it would work; remember Ford, Stephan's 'sheep' who is in the process of turning?  He has been IN that process for the whole series to date. 
We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!
But do beware the toad burps.

In this quote from me, I’m talking about a werewolf-change, not a vampire-change:

If it is a werewolf, than one we know might be changed….

Well, that's alarming. Probably good she's at least partially immune to most magic (though not so much the nastier kinds, which this may be).

I'd say it definitely is; Hoping that the same thing that helped her against the Fairy Queen will aid her here.

Draconian, maybe; or something similar to a basilisk? 

I wonder if Samuel and Ariana will be back home yet.  I miss Sam. 
I also wonder if we might see more of Thomas Hao's lady friend, whose name escapes me at the moment...

We have a fun belated Christmas present as well as something to welcome the New Year from Smoke Bitten!!! Happy New Year! 1/5

PHONE CONVERSATION BETWEEN MERCY AND BRAN:

    I hoped he could hear my eyes rolling.  "That's what you told me when I was fourteen.
I was hoping for something more useful now that I'm an adult and she's trying to take over my pack."

    "Don't roll your eyes at me," he snapped.  "And you were fifteen."

    I looked at the phone. "You remember how old I was?" I asked incredulously.
"It was the day Charles glitter-bombed my office," Bran said darkly.  "Of course I remember."

    "Charles?"  There was no way.  "Charles glitter bombed your office."  Cold, scary, efficient, deadly - those were words that suited Charles. 
That the term "glitter bomb" and Charles' name were in the same sentence was dumbfounding except maybe in something like "Charles discovered the glitter-bomber's secret identity and hanged her by her toenails to teach the other people who stole her idea
"never to do that again."

"Why did he glitter-bomb your office?" I asked.

    "It was something I said," Bran told me.  "And not your business."

~~Happy New Year!!!

Love the snippet!

"glitter bomb" definitely doesn't sound like Charles, not so much because of the glitter, but it seems a little bit direct for Charles (given his rationale in Burn Bright regarding rearranging Bran's office and re-organizing his bookcases), and not direct enough to be Brother Wolf's influence.  But maybe he did a Charles-ish version of glitter-bombing.  Or maybe Charles had been spending too much time with a certain coyote.
