My Rating: 5 Solid Stars!
In this new installment in the No. 1 New York Times bestselling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves . . .
My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.
And a coyote shapeshifter . . . And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.
Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn't stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae.
The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death.
But we are pack, and we have given our word. We will die to keep it.
The Mercy Thompson series is not only one of the most fun series in its genre but also one of the most kick butt with lovable characters that are memorable. It is also why this series has, from the very first book, been in my top ten favorites in UF and will remain there.
It is so much fun, so addicting, and so freaking entertaining. It truly has a little bit of it all. Humor, action, magic, beasties, a family bond, danger, baddies...truly, all of it. Every single thing I love about this genre is always packed up tightly and effortlessly in these books. And even though it shouldn't be possible, each book just gets better and better. I adore them. I speed read through them and then kick myself for not savoring them more and making them last. But, can you blame me? They are fantastic and fans of the series know, they are impossible to ignore. It's like Christmas every time a new release comes out and this new release, let me tell you, was so worth the wait!
I adored it. I devoured it. I tried really really hard to make it last but I flew through it because it was just so good, just so everything I missed. I love Adam and Mercy and how they support one another, love one another and take care of one another without being overbearing or alpha male even though Adam is so. Alpha. Male.
The pack, the friendships, the supernaturals beings, just everything about this series screams perfect and Briggs once again did an amazing job. I was completely in her power as I read each page taking very little breaks from anything else. I was hooked and once again, in love.
Truly another wonderful installment and I'm so thrilled this series is still going strong.
