Cold Days Book Club - Chapters 31-45 **MAJOR SPOILERS**
« on: November 27, 2012, 12:12:39 AM »
The Ghost Story Book Club seemed to go over well, so here's Cold Days' equivalent!

Welcome to the Cold Days Book Club!  This is intended to allow us to theorize and discuss as we read through Cold Days.   Discuss whats happened and how amazing it is.  Discuss what you think is happening in the current set of chapters.  Or even theorize about what may be about to happen.   

The rules are simple...
You can discuss anything you want about Cold Days, so long as it does not exceed the chapter limit set for this particular thread. 

Chapter Limit -- Do NOT discuss anything after chapter: 45

Flower gleam and glow, let your power shine. Make the clock reverse, bring back what once was mine. Heal what has been hurt, change the fates design. Save what once was lost, bring back what once was mine, what once was mine.

I feel remarkably stupid for not remembering that the Wild Hunt would be a factor. But not Harry master of improv, huh?

Agreed. Not even a contest.

I concur.  While most all of the recent books, especially Turn Coat and Changes, have been excellent, I still feel that none of them quite equaled the peak of White Night.  Until somewhere in this set of chapters, when I realized Jim had, in fact, finally outdone even that masterpiece.  And by a not insignificant margin to boot.  I would love to discuss the details of what is going on, but that will have to wait, cause right now I have to read the rest of this book, forum discussion, food, sleep, and homework be damned!

Seriously, laying the personal smack down on Santa in order to hijack the freaking Wild Hunt to take on an army of outsider's laying seige to Demonreach.  The sheer ballsy badassery inherent in that senario is positively palpable.

Considering the conversation with the Mothers, I wonder if Harry's mantle as Starborn would have gone to Winter as well, if he had made it into the stew pot.

Also, during Harry's conversation with Mother Summer, she mentions that it is possible to stay ones self despite powers that mold you, and that she both is and is not referring to Harry. Could she be referring also to Maeve (maaaaybe) or Molly (definitely)? Harry always seems to have an easier time doing the right thing for himself after he has helped someone else do the right thing in situation parallel to his own.

No, the Wyld Hunt is just something that happens. It doesn't have to be summoned.

Was no one else wildly, fantastically happy to finally see the outer gates? See the Gatekeeper doing his thing? Magic Carpets? Awesome age old battle for the universe? thousands of dying fae and unlimited numbers of baddies? I started laughing maniacally and didn't stop for about ten minutes. Probably one of the cooler parts of the book.

The Outer Gates? Less fantastically happy and more 'whoa, whoa, whoa, holy cr*p'. Ages-old battle is freaky ages-old battle. But Rashid's flying carpet was unexpected and funny, yeah.

I usually only sort-of browse this forum, but I had to put this out there: Mother Summer said that Mother Winter hasn't left their cottage much anymore since she lost her walking stick. Might her walking stick be the Blackstaff?

That is the prevailing theory, gone into greater detail in atleast a half dozen other threads.
