So Melissa and I have completed Shadows Before the Sun by Kelly Gay. If you haven't read it, please do so. It's a great series. If you have finished the book, please feel free to join us in discussion.
And now on to the questions.
- What powers do you think Hank will end up with? Seems like there was a hint he'll be able to teleport?
-What is Leander? He touched a sword he should not be able to touch, and his powers are out of this world. Who or what do you think he is? I have my suspicions.
- What more is coming? And could it already be here?
-Why does Leander want Ahkneri dead?
- Was it me or did it seem rushed that Hank was cured so quickly? I know he was healed but I don't know, I felt like it went too fast.
-Do you think we'll find out who the killer is or will the Droid King still be bugging Charlie to find the killer when the next book starts?
-What other powers could Charlie develop? Is she done getting powers?
-Will we ever find the cure for Ash?

Title: Magic Bites
Series: Kate Daniels
Author: Ilona Andrews
When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.
Kate Daniels is a down-on-her-luck mercenary who makes her living cleaning up these magical problems. But when Kate's guardian is murdered, her quest for justice draws her into a power struggle between two strong factions within Atlanta's magic circles.
The Masters of the Dead, necromancers who can control vampires, and the Pack, a paramilitary clan of shapechangers, blame each other for a series of bizarre killings—and the death of Kate's guardian may be part of the same mystery. Pressured by both sides to find the killer, Kate realizes she's way out of her league—but she wouldn't have it any other way…

Sometimes sorry isn't enough....
It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But not all is as it seems...
Between cozy traditions and parties with her friends, Emily loves the holidays. And this year’s even better--the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But Em knows if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend.
On the other side of town, Chase is having problems of his own. The stress of his home life is starting to take its toll, and his social life is unraveling. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel...something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed.
In Ascension, mistakes can be deadly. And three girls—three beautiful, mysterious girls—are here to choose who will pay.
Em and Chase have been chosen.

But what he wasn't told is that the Pit was never emptied. And Rojan isn't the only one using pain magic. And there is more at stake than the life of one little girl.

First section is up to chapter eight. Even if you're ahead, please feel free to join us.
Let's get started on just some of the questions we have.
- Is it just me or does it seem suspicious that there was no scent of another at the murder of the nymph? Who do you think is responsible for this murder?
-Do you think the shadow creature that comes to Charlie's powers, the Sachath, will show up? Is that the "shadow" reference in the title?
-Do you think Charlie will call on the Elder in this book for the favor? To help Hank maybe? Why not ask her help now?
-What do you think the fate is for Charlie, Hank, and Sandra?
-Do you think the murder at the beginning will be connected somehow to the plot of the book or could that just be a filler or better yet, a plot for the next book?
-How did Charlie end up at Hank's family home. Was it just luck or is there a reason?
-Is there a cure for Ash or is Leander lying?

The Mayans aren’t the only ones with a 2012 prophecy…
Long before recorded history, there was a Keetoowah warrior so feared that everyone trembled before his wrath. Only a brutal betrayal by the one closest to him could defeat him. But not even death was the end of a man so strong.
The Time Untime approaches…

But if he doesn’t kill Kateri, the deadliest of evils will reemerge and destroy everyone else on the planet. It was a sacrifice he made once.
Will he be able to make it again?
