Literary Ames (amyorames) | 5 comments I'll be reading this is September when the updated version is released.

Michelle Gilmore I can't wait to get this one either. I saw a used copy on Amazone for almost $100. As much as I love Patricia Briggs, I just couldn't do it.

Bry (utqtbry) I am waiting for the new version too! The covers of Masques and the sequel Wolfsbane are stunningly beautiful!


DarkHeart "Vehngeance" (darkheart) | 15 comments Bry, where have you seen the covers? I don't see them on her site anywhere.

I found a PDF of Masques a while back, but opted not to read it when I heard she was reworking and re-releasing it.

I'll hang on until it comes out in September, then. Thanks for the info.

new_user I think it was the first of hers that I read, and I loved it! I'm so glad she's releasing the sequel. I think you guys will like the hero in that one. ;) Mysterious.

I saw the covers at a book signing here in Houston. She had just gotten them that week, so she brought them to show everyone. They are beautiful!!

I have my copy!


message 15: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 110 comments I am about 40% in. Interested to know your thoughts ...


message 16: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 110 comments So I am about 80% in. The book is a slow start -- but I attribute that to world building. I really like the main character (Aralorn) and the "hero" -- Wolf. The story builds slowly, but now I am hooked. Briggs excels at taking a plain sort of female and making her a heroine. I love the magic in this book.


message 17: by Lily (new)

Lily (lilithesque) I am on the wait list for this one. Still tapping and waiting.


message 18: by Danielle (new)

Danielle (bookaddict27) | 6 comments I haven't gotten around to buying this one yet. Is it as good as the rest of the books she has written?


message 19: by Lily (new)

Lily (lilithesque) Now reading. Like the world, and charicters. MOre later


message 20: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 110 comments Looking forward to what you think. I also like the world and characters. It is obviously a first book for an author, I am looking forward to reading Wolfsbane -- i will probably read it in about 3-4 books.


message 21: by Regina (new)

Regina (reginar) | 110 comments I am now reading the sequel to Masques Wolfsbane (Aralorn, #2)(Sianim, #4) by Patricia Briggs -- I am about 25% in and am enjoying it. I really like Aralorn and Wolf as characters. The prequel to Wolfsbane is a brief letter from Briggs, she mentions that she wrote Wolfsbane a long time ago and fans of her other series may be famliar with some story lines that she has borrowed for her other books ..... I do see alot of familiar story lines.


message 22: by Lily (new)

Lily (lilithesque) Really!! Is it released. I reserved it at the library, but they take a while to get new releases, process it and I think I am 3rd on the wait list.

I still havent written up my thoughts on Masques. I am in the middle of stuff right now so probobly wont now but will say that the world reminded me of witchworld a little bit. Also their were threads of MZB's world too. Especially the women warrier enclave.

Maybe because this book fit, vauguely in some of my most beloved worlds I think I had a lot of context for the world. I dont know how much that lended to my enjoyment of the book, but for what ever reason, I enjoyed the book. It did feel a little clunky, the writing, but the vivid charicterizations that made me fall in love with Mercy and her world was there.
