Is Adair Getting To Be a Softie?
I don't see it as an inconsistency, no. One thing you should remember is that we don't hear Adair in his own words in The Taker. We only see him through Lanny's eyes. You first get his point of view (or POV) in The Reckoning and now again in the novella. I think if you look back over his behavior in The Reckoning, you'll see that he believes himself to be quite logical and even fair-minded. Once he forms an opinion on a matter, however, it's very hard to get him to change his mind, and when someone does something contrary to what he thinks is right, that's when the trouble starts. But he doesn't see himself as an ogre or a badass. He knows he loses his temper, and sometimes regrets it.
I will add, as an aside, that the book blog Paranormal Book Club chose him as the Best Villain of 2012. Yes, we are very proud.
Tell me what you think about Adair. Do you like getting his POV in The Reckoning? Was there anything that surprised you?
(By the way, an alert reader, Michelle, pointed out that The Witch Sisters is also free on Kobo.
If you'd like to see Amazon drop the price on Kindle, you can help by reporting it to their price-matching department. The link to that is in the Product Details section of the Witch Sisters page, right before Customer Reviews. You can use the Kobo link as proof that it's being offered for free elsewhere.)
