Hidden Legacy Series / Re: Hidden Legacy marketability

"No shape shifters" ==> Arabella ? XD

To be honest, I hope there won't be any Hidden Legacy adaptations... I expect them to completely fail when it comes to Nevada's magic and thoughts (it's hard to convey internal thoughts) and jewelwing, you're not the only one xD The fights are too spectacular (everything involving Rogan, yes) that I feel like the budget would have to be be gigantic... And I've almost never seen a good adaptation of a book so....

No, you’ve got a fair point. The series wouldn’t be cheap by any means, but those fight scenes are somewhat spaced out where the settings and various populations in Kate’s world are plentiful. It could be tha5 it would be a wash as far as costs.

Maybe it's just me, but every time I read Hidden Legacy I think about the cost of filming the fight scenes involving Rogan. It started with his climactic fight with Adam, but there were others .

Kate Daniels / Kate Daniels: the next generation

Gods help us all.

Sorry, did I type that out loud?

I was thinking about how Kate's Ancestor married a part ifrit to get some resistance into the bloodline. Could her half shifter children be a threat to him?  In Bites she mentions that the a5 the shape shifters have at least partial resistance to some magic.

Could mixing her bloodline with Curranresult in a baby potentially give rise to Roland’s ultimate kryptonite?

It would give another reason why he may be hell bent on killing the kid.

I know Ilona said someone picked up the rights to shop Kate around as far as film rights go, but I’m thinking Hidden Legacy might be more friendly towards such treatment. 

1.  Setting is closer to present day. No need to build a post apocalyptic film set. This would allow for more flexibility in finding locations. Or make it easier to just use Toronto, which appears to be a popular place for sci fi shows.

2.  No shape shifters. I love The Pack and the shifters, but that’s a lot of makeup or cgi. That is a huge cost increase to production. Same thing with the vamps. Outside of the occasional demonstration of high level illusion, an animator or one of the sommoners you are mainly dealing with short term things like fire or lightning.

3.  No waves. I’m torn on this. I would like to see how they would deal with the waves. There is rich potential for comedic and tense set ups there. Used skillfully the waves could really impact the storyline. On the other hand it could just as easily be overused.

There are  some stumbling  blocks, the biggest one being that your main character has a gift that isn’t visible or flashy. How to adequately bring that to life? Maybe a type of audible distortion over the “lies”? Nothing loud. Just a tinny overlay that only Nevada and the viewer can hear.

Anyway, that’s what came to me as I re-listened to both series.

Any thoughts?

You should be able to host it on an external site and post the link, something like sharefile or dropbox. Granted it's fine with the mods

He was forced out of power as I recall, so wounded pride, resentment, and a conviction that he knows what's best would be my guesses. Politicians have to be at least slightly narcissistic - if we're honest, most people are in some ways, but we try to keep it in perspective with empathy and regular reality checks. That narcissism can turn toxic pretty quickly when it's not balanced with the aforesaid empathy plus a healthy dose of true humility, not the box-check political sound bite kind.

He does so hate to be bored.

Yes! When I read Wildfire the first time that phrase stood out to me when Caesar is speaking to Victoria. It wasn't until I re-read the book that I notice that the phrase appears earlier when Linus is talking with Nevada in the hospital cafeteria.  Now I feel like I have to re-read the entire series to see if there are any other hints I've missed along the way/pay better attention to how both Caesar and Linus are described. If he is Caesar, I wonder what his motivation really is.
