The Mage in Black Book Discussion Part One

Hi everyone! It's now time to start the discussion for The Mage in Black by Jaye Wells. Remember even if you have read the whole book, you can join us. If you haven't read the book, it's never too late to join us. We break up the discussion to last three weeks. So if you can't join us this week, join us next week. Let's get this discussion going.

Robyn's Questions

- What was your first impression about Sabrina's twin, Maisie?

- Do you trust the council?


- If the prophecy is correct and Sabrina is the next Lilith. She didn't seem so happy, do you think she will follow through or find a way out of it?

- Who really is the Shade? Is it Slade? Who do you think Slade is?


Melissa's Questions

-We are reminded early on about the owl. Could this owl also be a sign Sabina is the next Lilith? Or did someone send it to watch over her?

-We learn that Adam is sent on another mission for the council. Do you think he will make an appearance in this book again before the end? Will Sabrina and Adam become an item?

-Does anyone else get a feel that Adam might be in relationship to the "Adam" Lilith was with in the garden? Could this be a good or bad sign for Sabrina and Adam?

  1. Where do I begin? :)

    I hope Adam does make an appearance, I love that mage. I'm curious to know what his mission is. Is it just a mission or will it play a role later?

  2. Oh, I think I was just as upset as Sabina with Adam leaving. I didn't want him to go. I love these two together. And when Maisie asked if Adam is off limits. Hmmm, I hope she keeps him on the unavailable list as he and Sabina need to be together. I hope they do get together. They are a wonderful pair!

    I do hope he comes back in the end, or before the end. Sabina needs that balance to her.

  3. Oh MY GOD! Maisie! First thought was the old hippie type. ;D LOL! I couldn't believe it. But in a way I figured she would be like a complete opposite to Sabina. I do love her though. She is so fun. And the colors. lol. So NOT Sabina.

  4. Oh and this Shade, or Slade as Sabina called him. I'm really curious about him.

    I have to say this was a rough stopping point. I did turn the page to read more. But stopped myself from reading it. It took a lot of will power. Just awful! But it leaves us lots to talk about. :)

    Sabina said she hadn't heard Slade's voice in 30 years. So is this a friend or a foe? Someone that turned against the Dominea? What do you think?

  5. That's what I was wondering. Is he going to be a good guy? Do they have a history together that could be bad for her and Adam?

  6. Maisie, I like her. It will be interesting to see how the twins relationship grows.

  7. Oh, I think everything Sabina does isn't going to help her relationship with Adam. :) She seems to have that ability, but Adam seems to take it well.

    What about Adam's Aunt! Rhea. I think I like her and it seems as she approves of Sabina. In a strange way, even though Mages don't seem to look at love mixed relationships the same way of Vampires do.

    Rhea doesn't seem to mind that Adam and her had a moment. Actually she seemed to find it a little funny from Sabina's thoughts.

    On that note, I wonder if Adam and Maisie ever had a thing together. I know Maisie says he's an old friend, but we don't know any more yet.

  8. I'm kind of surprised that Sabina has taken Maisie so easily. I think Adam helped smooth that over with him being there at the meeting. But, Sabina is doing much better than I thought she would. So she has to loss her grip here soon. Just being out of her element so drastically, she needs to fall apart and screw up. ;)

  9. Without Adam, I can see her losing it a little bit. He helps her with her emotions.

  10. Adam does. He seems to balance her out and to keep reminding her the right way of things. I kind of like that about him.

  11. Me too. I just hope this Slade doesn't mess it up.

    What about the council? Should we trust them? Rhea seems to be a nice one but what about the rest?

  12. - What was your first impression about Sabrina's twin, Maisie? She kind of reminds me as a wallflower type person. But yet I sense a very sharp, smart person hiding behind. So I'm wondering if she is for real or not. I wondering if I'm the only one who is afraid to completely trust Maisie yet lol.

    - Do you trust the council? Not yet

    - Who really is the Shade? Is it Slade? Who do you think Slade is? Man I have no clue but I can't wait to find out!

    -We are reminded early on about the owl. Could this owl also be a sign Sabina is the next Lilith? Or did someone send it to watch over her? I am really curious to find out who this owl is. I hope at some point we get that chance.

    -We learn that Adam is sent on another mission for the council. Do you think he will make an appearance in this book again before the end? Will Sabrina and Adam become an item?I think we will see him again. The connection between him and Sabine is undeniable but I don't know if we'll see that play out yet

    OH and just let me say, I LOVE Giguhl! He still outshines any character in the books for me. Best line of the first part that had me LMAO, "Why is it forked?" Just call me a perv but that line cracked me up!

  13. Zia, I have to admit, I wasn't sure I was going to trust Maisie at first, but she seems like a good person.

    I have this bad feeling, the owl will still be a mystery by the end of the book, lol.

    Giguhl is classic, I love him. I look forward to his scenes.

  14. Hello. Just followed a post from Book Blogs and ended up here. I have since subscribed. YAY! This sounds like a great read! I love how everyone's talking about it. I'm going to have to get a copy now.

  15. Hi there :)

    We'll be discussing this book for three weeks, it's never too late to join in :)

  16. Zia,

    I'm so glad you are reading the book with us!

    As for trusting Maisie and the council. I think you are onto something there. I'm not completely sold on the council yet either. And Maisie, well, I want to believe she is genuine. But I'm not sure yet. I think the Mage want to use Sabina just as much as Sabina's grandma wanted to use her. I think thats the biggest reason for bringing Sabina to Maisie, not for a family reunion.

    Oh, and I busted out laughing when Rhea asked, "Why is it forked?" I thought that was played out very well. Sabina getting her touch of revenge and Rhea's reaction. ;D Great scene!

    I just want Adam to come back. I really like him. He's handsome and I love his character. :) But I think he wont come back until the end. And they aren't going to play out the relationship here though.

    Oh and that owl! I am so stuck on it. I HAVE to know the connection and if someone sent it, who.

  17. Vamchoir! Thank you for following the link over. :) I'm glad you like what you see. :) I hope you enjoy the book and join in with us in the future. :)

    Robyn, that was me. I added a link over on book blogs to let others know we where chatting. :)

  18. You know I like Rhea but I was wondering the same thing, could she just be using Sabrina?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Also Maisie, we can trust her right now but how does she really feel that Sabrina could be the next Lilith.

  20. You know I like Rhea but I was wondering the same thing, could she just be using Sabrina?

    I want to trust the whole council but I get this uneasy feeling. I like Rhea as well but I think I trust her less than Maisie at this point. I half wonder if Maisie is being used by them as well

    ReplyDelete
  21. You have a point. Now that we know Sabina could be the next Lilith. Will they drop Maisie and pay more attention to Sabrina?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Okay, now you both have me worried for Sabina and Adam hooking up. If Rhea is involved with the council in the plot to use the twins (and Sabina more as she is to be the next Lilith) then that will look bad for Adam. And I have a feeling Adam doesn't know any of this! Sabina will be sooo miffed at Adam if it works out this way.

    I do think the council is using Sabina though. You know they want to do away with the Dominea and live freer.

    But, it seems that in New York it seems the different creatures live together better than in LA.

    I worry about this as well. Adam will definitely get the fallout if this is the case.I really like his character and it will suck if this happens

  24. Darned that council! lol.

    I don't want Adam to get the reath of the council. That would really stink!

    I have to say I'm really surprised that Sabina is taking all this so well! I think being out of her element and not having anything or anyone to fall back on has really taken a toll on her. She is going along with all this rather easily. I'm waiting for her to loss it on someone. And I was thinking it would be that man in charge of the council. Heck, it might still come.

    Giguhl made me chuckle when he said he didn't want to make Rhea mad. :) He's a Demon! lol.

    I'm surprised as well. I hate to be the person she loses it on. They are going to be a hurtin'

  26. I have a feeling the person she will lose it on will be either Adam or Maisie.

    Yup I agree!

  28. Is it bad that I hope it's now Adam, haha.

  29. Okay, sorry it took me forever and a day to get back here. But I had to stop back one last time before I picked up the next section. And I can't wait to get into it!!!

    I think we might have covered a good bit for the first section. :)

    But I have to agree with you all I think Adam and/or Maisie are going to get the wrath to pay. And I almost hate to see them get it. Especially Adam. I really just love him. ;D Maisie, I'm not to sure about her yet either. But I think she might be geniune. But the council on the other hand... using both of them maybe?

    Okay, off to the book I go tonight. :)
