Psy-Changeling Reread Spoiler Zone

Will you be (or are you already) doing a reread of the Psy-Changeling Series in preparation for the release of Ocean Light? Any thoughts you'd like to share, or burning questions that other readers might be able to answer? Have you noticed something in this reread that you hadn't spotted previously?

This will be a spoiler zone for the entire Psy-Changeling series up to and including Silver Silence. So go forth and tell us your thoughts. ;-)

Listening to Silver Silence on my commute now. Can’t wait for Bowen's story.

I have reread the entire series five times in the past four years not counting my additional individual book rereads so I decided not to do an entire series reread this year.

I do plan to reread the last five single titles (starting with Heart of Obsidian) closer to Ocean Light’s release date.

What amazes me is that even after rereading the series so many times I still pick up on new stuff every time.

Most of my questions have been answered in subsequent books, though I have a few lingering ones.

I had assumed after Branded by Fire that Hawke knew about Anthony. So was surprised in last year’s reread of Kiss of Snow to realize at that point Hawke didn’t know (per ch 23 "It also made Hawke wonder, not for the first time, about Anthony Kyriakus’s loyalties."). So I wonder if Mercy didn’t Riley or if Riley didn’t tell Hawke. It’s a moot point since they all know by Allegiance of Honor.

I also wonder about Faith’s thought re: The Ghost becoming important to DarkRiver in Caressed by Ice. Was that just his connection via Sahara? Or because Faith thought specifically about The Ghost if that’s an element of the story arc that has yet to play out fully. Hmm…

There are other more plot specific questions I have that we’ll just have to wait to see how things evolve such as:
•If/how Kaleb gets the NetMind and DarkMind to merge.
•Who is the Architect?
•Who are the traitors (in BS, HA, Forgotten, etc)?
•How will they solve issue of faulty chips (for Human Alliance)?
•Was Mikhail a victim of Psy experimentation?
•Who are the other top tier members of the Consortium?
•How will they be able to save Bowen? (we’ll have this answer soon!)
•Who will Kaleb hire to be his senior assistant since Lenik is not equipped to deal with him directly?

And of course the all-important question: Did Judd finish the new obstacle course at the SD San Gabriel den in less tries than Cooper? LOL.

I'm wondering if we will learn more about Teijan and the Rats, as well as Adam and the falcons? Or the Russian Bridegroom?

Also, I'm curious as to how the Psy are going to convince humans to trust them. I mean, fixing the chip will help, but still... that's going to be a long road.

And, yeah who are the traitors? It seems as if leaks or traitors are mentioned, but we only see the changelings really dealing with them. For example, I just listened to the audio book of Heart of Obsidian, and Anthony Kyriakus apparently has (or had) someone in his clan that leaked Sahara's return. Yet, we have no idea if Anthony located the leak and took care of it. Presumably he did, but it was behind the scenes?

And I'm wondering when we will have more babies, because I want more babies! Especially for the some of our TKs for some reason. I just think Judd or Kaleb with a baby would be cute and highly amusing. :)

I'm VERY MUCH looking forward to the next book! I can't wait!

Oh, and Alice Eldridge! What's going to happen with Alice?

I've just reread the Wild Embrace novella. It's not so much an unanswered question, but I'm wondering in Echo of Silence how all the people working on Alaris found out and reacted to Tazia and Stefan's marriage. That would be such a great short story! So looking forward to Ocean Light!!!!!

Are you serious?
There's not a month that goes by that I'm not re-reading any of your Psy-Changeling or Guild Hunter books. I must know them by heart by now. I'm even re-reading your novellas on the other characters that appear in your stories.

Think I'm obsessed much?

I reread both the Psychangeling and Guild Hunter books regularly. I always have one by my side ready to dip into. They have given me tremendous pleasure over the years. I have my favourite characters in each series but love both worlds you have created.

After rereading the entire series, I believe the Architect is Shoshanna Scott. I forget which book it was in, but Caleb visited Shoshanna and she told him she was focusing on business, not politics. "Easily recognizable face" from Shards of Hope and discovering the Architect was female in Silver Silence has made me believe this. It took rereading the series for these clues to click in my mind.

@Tiana

At first I thought she was too obvious, but she's definitely on my list of suspects.

I also wonder who the traitors are in the various packs, the Forgotten, and the Human Alliance.

So many questions...

Does anyone else wonder when we will learn more about Alice Eldridge? Or the Remi and the Rainfire pack? Or the baby arrows learning to play? Nikita's strange relationship with Anthony Kyriakus?
Also very curious about how humans will protect themselves from Psy influence.
My guess for the Architect is also Shoshanna.
Is Miane a shark changeling?
I'm probably forgetting loads..
Super excited for Bo's story!!
