Welcome to the official blog of Morgan Rice, #1 Bestselling author of THE SORCERER'S RING, THE VAMPIRE JOURNALS and THE SURVIVAL TRILOGY
OK. So I'm thinking Aiden is her father and the shield is Sam her brother. Can't wait to see what happens tho!!!!!
That is actually pretty good for theories. I have wondered about Aiden being her father, but could have sworn she asked and he told her no in the first couple of books. I understand how there is a price to pay, but something has to turn around for Sam. Him being her shield would make sense in a way, because he is supposed to protect her. He is just so young to die, even in vampire years, that it would be a shame to see him go permanently.
I never really thought about the shield as a person, but now that it's brought up it very well could be Sam. Especially, since Sam was suppose to protect her and is suppose to be stronger than any other vampire. I do wonder though since that is brought up then is it possible for Scarlet to be the shield or Caitlin herself? I mean Scarlet is suppose to be very strong and as every day passes her powers grow stronger. Also, maybe the shield could be Caitlin. I am kind of thinking that the cross necklace is going to be the shield because it has been the key to get to all of the keys and it's the one thing from her father that lead her to the sword, only for her to find out that the sword was meant for Sam and she was meant to find something else. Although, the fact that her necklace and Sam's watch held the same clue (the exact same message) makes me wonder if it's possible that they missed something when they found the sword that was suppose to be the shield. I don't remember reading in the second book, Loved, that when she found the sword she checked for any other objects. If I remember correctly when she pulled the sword out they started to leave the church and never checked the rest of the church out or the space the sword was in. So, maybe there was something there. At the end of Vowed Aiden told Caitlin, "You're wrong. Many are left. And when you find the shield it just might ne our only hope to bring the others back." Aiden told Caitlin this when she told him, "But there is no one left," when Aiden told her that everything was pre-ordained and that she had to continue on her missin for everyone. So, I think that she will be able to bring Sam back from the monster he has now become, Polly and the baby back along with Taylor, Tyler, Cain, Barbra, and all of the others that lost their lives. I really hope that the last book is 2 or 3 times longer than the normal books. It would be nice if she would continue the series with at least 2 more books and then write a spin-off for the main characters. I would love to know what Scarlet will be like and what Sam and Polly's child will be like. Will that child be as strong because h/she is from Sam? I would really like to know how Scarlet went back in time? Who sent her? How long had she been in that time?
Brandy I LOVE your insight on the next book. I totallt have to agree with you hoping Morgan will make this one much longer then the others in the series. So much is left unopened so I hope Morgan give this next book the light it deserves!! I am also with you in hoping she will do several spin off books. If Sam and Polly have that family they deserve it would be interesting to see their story played out especially having that life to themselves and not all about Catlin for once. I feel bad about Sam and how he never gets what he should...the light has always been about Catlin and for once she has a family and has a brother who loves her dearly. I can't wait!!
I think Aiden is Caitlins father as well.This series has had so many twists but Aiden has always been been in every place they have. I hope things turn Round for Sam, it fits. Scarlet is still mystery, but I am sure we will find out in this last book.
Love the series & read all 7 books in just 3 days, so I am confused on some things? 1st it says Caleb got sera pregnant b4 he turned her & that it was 700 years ago, & that they were married just one year, but then n #2 when she goes back just 200 years he's married to sera & Jade is a young boy??? Very cOnfused on how that adds up? Also some other things that don't quite make sense to me according to a time frame mentioned & then later is contradicted. Also if the good people day when they go back lil further they're alive again, yet if Jill evil person they r dead for good (which is good, but doesn't make sense) when I read books, especially series I look for clues & facts to put together the plot in my head, so when things don't add up often, I.e. the time frame for sera & Caleb among many other things n entire series It confuses me on what's supposed to be perceived. Not sure how I am supposed to accurately put together the plot. Was hoping maybe someone else caught this & either clarify of I am the one who missed something or if indeed it is a mistake. Either way love the series & can not wait for new book :)
Also when he's with her in 2 or 3 can'tRemember it goes from calling her sera to Samantha? Them changes back all in the same event & is just them two? Neone else catch that? Not trying to criticize I'm only trying to determine if its just a simple mistype & I am correct in knowing it is actually sera. Also if scarlet is they're child who's wNt her back & y was she an orphan n 1599 with that awful creature beating her! Seems aiden would have ensured she'd of been taken care of :( I love that is their daughter tho & had a feeling the whole time it was :) ! Also y couldn't Sam take Polly back like Caitlin did Caleb? Same exact situation. Also what happens to lily! Will she return?On the actual subject (sorry btw!) I like that aidens her father, but I was thinking more along the lines of somethIng biblical. Like back when bibles being created & Jesus is on earth. Sam would make sense as the shield considering aiden said its not always an object & sometimes they come to you. This is another reason why I wanted to be clear on each & every detail & when they don't add up its hard to say what's what when things r contradicting . So please help!!! Thanks guys! Wish book 8 was out now! Dnt knw if I can wait much longer!
Omg I thought that too about maybe her father is like God or something! That would be a very literal meaning of finding " the father"
i think 2 things 1 Aiden is going to be the father or the head vampire of all the vampire race/covens i hope Caitlin and Caleb stay together and Kyle gets his A$$ killed love the books i wish they can go on i think its got alot more potential to go on keep writing PLEASE
OMG, I am so in love with this series. I thought for sure, after Twilight, no series would grab me like it did. Boy was I wrong!I have just finished book 7 on my kindle app for my phone. I must admit, sitting in the middle of Walmart, waiting on a prescription, I cried. My heart aches for Sam and I am beside myself over the loss of Polly and.....! I still can't wrap my head around that one and sooo want it to not be true. I absolutely love Caitlyn and Caleb, but part of me is also in love with Caitlyn and Blake. But, maybe that is only because I don't like seeing him in pain.Anyway, I am unsure of Aiden being the father. Part of me feels that would be too obvious. I think it is something much deeper than that. Could it be that her father and the shield are one? Also, would her father look/appear so old? Caitlyn is still so young and to think of her creation from Aiden at the age he would have been?? I was elated to find that Scarlet was their daughter. She is so wise and adorable, and obviously powerful. I wish badly that Polly would have listened to her. I am unsure that she is the shield though. But do feel she holds much power. Sam being the shield would make sense. My only question is, if he is so dark and evil now, would he feel the love for his sister to protect her?Well, off to ponder all of this now. Can't wait for the Final book, please hurry. :)
OMG OMG OMG love the series and i also think that the book was confusing with everything like the timeline and if Scarlet was turned into there daughter after they went back then how did she go back? And I also think Aiden should be her dad but when you think about it that is too led up and not much of a surprise I think Morgan should make the dad someone heard about in the book but not to oviously her dad. And about the shield i think the shield is the holy grail. BTW I LOVE THIS SERIES AND WOULD ALSO LOVE IT IF U MAKE AN AFTER SEIRES OF THESE BOOKS
I think that Caitlin will meet her father. I don't think that it is Aiden because Caitlin has seen her father in her dreams. I hope that she finds Sam and get him to see the good in him even though the evil has taken over. I think that Scarlet will play a major roll in the next book. When does book 8 come out??? I can't find a release date.
I don't want to even speculate. Just hurry and get #8 out there. Love reading your books. Keep it up.
Does anyone have a speculated release date for book 8??I don't believe Aiden is her Dad, like someone else mentioned, she has seen her Dad in dreams, plus Caitlin asked early in the series and Aiden told her no.I don't think Sam is the shield, but I do think that whatever the shield is will bring everyone to current time frame, back to the beginning of the book... Dont you remember Caleb telling Caitlin right before he turned her that he finally remembered what they were to each other? As in, they had already lived books 2-8?? Then, if he remembers, then at the current time Caitlin has all she needs to defeat evil and restore balance to the world.I'm ready to know what Morgan Rice thinks though!!
I think that this series is one of the best I have read. It has alot of suspence and still alot of questions to answer. I believe that at some point Sam was suppose to be the sheild. But after Caitlyn made the vow that brought Scarlet back I think that Sam was no longer destined to be the sheild but Scarlet was.They hint at Scarlets powers, as well as say that they were surprised at how she took charge (Both Polly and Blake as well as Caitlyn). Near the end of the 7th book Blake was also surprised at how fearless she was in the face of death. But what about Lilly? She could very well be the sheild because Caitlyn is always saying that she must be special if they are leaving a human something this special.I wonder who the Holy Grail is for Caitlyn or her shield. I could understand if it was for Caitlyn since she's The One, but what if the sheild is a human or vampire and they take the Holy Grail so that they can protect her.I have no Idea who Caitlyn's father will be because if she's seen her father then in the future wouldn't she have recognized him right away from her dreams? Because as far as I remember Vampires don't age.I really wish she didn't marry Caleb... Don't get me wrong I like him, he has helped Caitlyn alot but I like blake even more than Caleb.I wonder if they will tell who Blake supposedly got killed. I keep thinking that maybe it was Caitlyn, but that wouldn't make sence because wouldn't he have shown recognition in the first book if it was her? I also want to know what kind of jewelry the original piece of sea glass came off of. Was it part of the bracelet that he gave to Caitlyn that broke in Rome?I have to agree that they will most likely end up back in present time New York along with her Father and the rest of her family (including the whole pollepel coven) who are all alive. I just wonder if Sam will be Sam or if he will still be ill. Or even if Kyle will be alive.If kyle isn't not alive and neither are any of her other enemies but Sam is still ill will she have to kill her brother or will there be another way out?
sense sam is a shape shifter that would mean in the bloodline of mother and father Aiden could be a shapeshifter also and thats how he can appear an old man but vampires dont age so he could just shapeshift into an old man the shield im still thinking of what that is im sad that polly is dead that was sad still thinking ill write back when i think of another plot
Hey i have been thinking about the 8 book and thought i could give some inspiration u see i write a lot soo here it goes please give me honest comments to this - Caitlin shot up out of the cascut and searched for Caleb and Scarlet. Sooo much had happened to her friends with a lot of them dying she was heartbroken to hear that her dear friend polly who was engaged to saam and was like a sister to her died. Caitlin looked around the dark room and realized she was not alone. In the dark a figure crept out and hugged her. It was Caleb who looked almost as if he was crying and it took Caitlin a second to realize why. "Where's Scarlet" she ask hearing the tremmble in her voice as she frantically looked around the room to try and find her little girl. " I don't know" said Caleb "I just woke up, and thought i was all alone when your cascut opened" he said.Poor Caitlin thought the worst, maybe Scarlet haddent made the trip back or maybe she made it back just in a different place. it pained Caintlin to try and find her little girl when she heard the faintest little voice say "Mommy why are you crying" it was Scarlet who had just left the room to try and find her parents and came back realizing she was gone way to long............... That's all i have sooo far comment on what you think i love the input
What I would like to know is...who is Caitlin's real mother???? I don't think that the "mom"in book one was her real mother....
i wass thinking that maybe her mom wasen't a vampire 'cause caitlin wasen't a full vampire when she was born.
just stopped by to say i love your books yes who,s her real mother? i do believe her father is adien causes in her dreams she don,t see her fathers face? sam,s watch interested me?
When will book 8 be released? Is it named yet?
Ok before I start I just want to mention how I got chills when Scarlet came back to life and was confirmed to be thier daughter. With that said I believe Scarlet is the shield. I dont think that Aiden is her father. How does Ruth time travel with them? Im thinking that Sam got his shifting powers from thier father and that Ruth is their father in disguise.
hell don,t no anymore but i got to say morgan rice is killing me with this s..t. really don,t think sam the shield cause sam went to dark side ,guyz who,s caitlin,s real mother?or shall i say wheres her real mother? is she even still alive? but remember guys that strange watch sam had a watch that never had to be turned are a single battrey ls to dam strange to me. i feel like a cat trying to catch her dam tail what about u guys? brandy you go girl,and kcd who, jade and jill this ls for kcd you need too read the all the books over luv cause samantha the one that turned sam. and it,s jake not jade anyway who no,s ??i,m lost i,m going back to to tim o'rourke a really good writer too but he,d just as bad morgan rice. keep in touch u guys cause you know i have no family are friends i need you guys.???????????????
Morgan i have written a lot but i was wondering what day in march r u gonna release the book 'cause my b-day is march 22
MARCH u got joking oh hell .
i think Aiden is her father and she is the sheild. its all about her finding about she is strong and able to do any think she beleives in!!!!
i really don,t what to think anymore i really love the books but march sucks i do feel aiden is her father but i think the watch is the sheild , who,s kat. and she still alive.
I just want to say I too love this series and hope that book 8 truly isn't the end. I don't know how it's going to turn out but I do hope that Kyle remains deceased and Sam will reunite with Polly somehow. I hate that Sam has been turned "to the dark side" and hope this time travel will somehow reverse all the evil that was bestowed in the last book. If Polly is somehow alive again and has this child then I worry about Kyle too returning...very interesting but truly hope the "gang" gets back together and the ending is a happy one...don't like disappointments!!
i got the feeling that sam and polly will be togather again hay u think maybe polly,s child could be the shield? are adrain? i wonder why serio. hell u no the guy that stabed kat.did not come back with that jerk kyle hope he don,t come back, and all the time travel they done why can,t the get calob son? i think i,m going to start the series over maybe i,m missing something and it most likely in the book one. later guy,s k.i.t
does book 8 even have a name yet?
I am so excited for book 8 to come out!!! i think that Polly might come back to life but that Sam and her wont have the kid. :( i also think that Caleb and Kaitlin daughter will have some kind of special power other than being able to shoot arrows perfectly at the age of 6. i really hope that Adaien is her father but idk who or wat the sword is. i really hope the make a movie for these books. i want to see who they would cast.
To JOHNNY- I know that Samantha turned Sam & is a dif vampire, I said that in a scene it's written that SAMANTHA AND CALEB R WALKING WITH THEIR SON, obviously it's a misprint & the sons name is JADE NOT JAKE. So maybe you should reread the books bc it definitely says that. Also i was right abt the biblical time reference & her father :) nailed it!!
kcd your the one that needs to read the books again it was sires and celab and jake . hell samantha was not even in the picture.JAKE moron.
i no i read the dam thing over and it was JAKE not JADE thank u for believing in what i said i read this books six times i no it was jake .
