Wolfsbane Sianim #2, by Patricia Briggs

The exciting follow-up to New York Times #1 best-selling author Patricia Briggs' Masques features the further adventures of the shapeshifting mercenary Aralorn.

Aralorn's dangerous existence has taken her far from her aristocratic roots and kept her from her homeland for more than a decade. Now, she must return home to mourn the death of her father, the Lyon of Lambshold. But when Aralorn and her companion Wolf arrive, they discover that home is gone forever and they must take on an old enemy more sinister than they ever could have imagined.

Loriidae Hi all. I am definitely reading, but I am going on a rainforest retreat for the next few days. No mobile reception and no internet. Bliss! A friend of mine owns an old convent. Laughter, chat and several bottles of wine involved.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments I might be a day or two late getting to this one. We'll see. A client cancelled today, so maybe, if I quite watching TV, I can catch up on a few books I need to read for a challenge... then get to this before Monday.

Loriidae Thanks Lisa Kay - it was lovely - dawn walks with the bird chorus - not a man-made sound in earshot.

I listened on the drive there and back (3 hours). Up to chapter seven so I will wait until you catch up.

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments Finished chapter 7. This one is better written...


Loriidae Yes the flow is much better. So far I have only felt it a bit clunky when it changed to Nevyn's POV in chapter three. Maybe because previously the POV has only been Aralorn and Wolf.

I agree, it could have gone smoother. I still can’t decide if he’s a villain or a victim...

I am the same. I don't like the way he is treating Aralorn so I am tending more to villain

I had heard of it and associated it with fairy tales but was unable to find any historical references that I recognized.

Interestingly, it is also used in The Crimson Campaign which is a 'flintlock fantasy' that I am buddy reading in another group.

Funny that you would run across it twice so close together. LOL!

Loriidae on Chapter 3 - Yes, nice twist, that.


Loriidae Great glad you enjoyed it as well Lisa Kay

Same time next month? Perhaps a little earlier around the 15 - 18th if that's ok. I already have a buddy read schelduled for the 21st and two for the 22nd, that might take some juggling, although one is a reread.
