Absolutely! I started reading Ms. BRIGGS religiously right after her first Mercy Thompson book (Blood Bound) came out. Eventually I was so satisfied with her Thompson books I started buying her older books and enjoyed those as well. At this point I have already read just about everything this author has written and can heartily recommend everything she has written so far except The Alorn books.
I would like to see more interaction with the main characters of the series and just generally more cultural experiences / history / background in the story. My favorite books in this story include River Marked and Iron Kissed so I think what I enjoy most is learning about the cultures created in these books and Frost Kissed didn't have enough of this for me.
Always a good listen.
Yes! Pray for the authors future work.
PLEASE don't loose the magic, Ms. Briggs. Create a new series if need be. I have been so disappointed by Charlaine Harris deterioration of her Sookie Stackhouse series, Hamilton's Anita Blake books went South really fast, and even the last installment of one of my favorite Looooonng series, Bujold's Vorkosigan series, showed signs of this "no longer up to par" performance for the first time. I won't even start on Nora Roberts In Death series.....why do i keep buying these? Generally every author who continues their series for over 5 to 8 books grows old and repetitive or unimaginative. Create a new series if need be. I have great respect for Harris coming out with her short lived but very satisfying Grave series about the time Sookie was getting old, then ending that series before it could grow old. I could barely finish her last few Dead book. This installment of Mercy feels like it's going the way of the author hanging on too long to a hit after the inventiveness / creativity is gone. I like nearly all Ms. Briggs worlds. If you don't have a new twist for Mercy (and I LOVED your Coyote and Indian cultuural twists in River Marked) write your next book in a new world! Tell us what happens next in Where Demons Walk. Your writing is enoyable and I don't want to see you go stale playing the big hit too long....like so many other authors I could name. I hope to be enjoying your books for many more years.
I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and/or listening to mostly paranormal and fantasy.
In this book, we get to see all the characters we've been missing for a while. While Zee and Stefan, make a small appearance, we see more of Kyle and Tad. We also learn a lot more about Tad and what it means for him to be half fae. We also learn more about Mercy's coyote side. Adam is still a little overbearing for my liking, and Mercy's too, I think. I would like him to start to see, that while he really wants to protect her, she isn't a person to stand around and wait for someone else to save her friends. He wouldn't love her if she just sat on the sidelines or screamed and ran the other way every time there is trouble.
This book isn't without loss. We do lose a very important person to Mercy and her friends. Even if this person was a minor character to the book, this person was very important to the other characters. This character will be missed.

One of my favorites! Love this series!
I enjoy that the author has given more than one problem for Mercy to fix in this book!
I am open to reviewing quality products.
WooHoo!! I adore this series and it just gets better and better with each book!! There is just so much going on in this book that you are kept on the edge of your seat the whole time!! The pacing was beautifully done and the storytelling once again top notch!!
Mercy is like a magnet for trouble and this book brings many things to a head in a short period of time. The whole thing happens in the span of like three days! Mercy as always is kick but and steps into the fray to save those she loves. Perhaps not wise with some of her decisions, like using the new expensive car of the vampire queen who really doesn't like you. What are a few dings between frenimies, right?
Love the sections where is is from Adam's POV. Really great to hear his thoughts! It is fascinating to get that glimpse into his mind.
Lots of old friends and not so friends dropping by in this book. Awesome covered in awesome sauce and a side of fabulous!! My how the things are developing with the Fey and events from the last Alpha & Omega book. The Sh!t really did hit the fan!
Gotta say Mercy is a bit slow on the uptake at times. Some things were really obvious and she was the last to clue into them. Also she is a tad in denial about the whole my dad is a god thing she learned in the last book. It will be very interesting to see how things develop for her in coming books.
Warning there are a few super emotional scenes!! Really had me in tears at one point!
Sigh, how long do I have to wait for the next book? This is why I waited so long to read this book! No patience!
I thoroughly enjoy the Mercy Thompson books, and this one was no exception. In this bookwe get to know a lot more about the vampires and about Wolf in particular.
The characters are fun. I liked Kyle's part being larger.
It was a page-turner. It kept me listening. I would have liked more Stefan and Ben, but I liked the characters who had center stage.
Some of the characters were indistinguishable, which I find annoying.
It had some laughs.
This is a solid series with no sign of burnout.
I work in a library, so you would think I read a lot, but I feel really guilty if I sit just to read. That is why audio books are great!
The Mercy Thompson world is one of my favorite series. This doesn't disappoint.
These characters are fabulous. They are fun, quirky, serious and you love them or love to hate them.
Mercy is of course the best. But Adam is a close second. The raw power and sexuality are felt in every word.
I went through and listened to all of them again before listening to this one. It took a while, but I found the correct order with the short stories and Alpha Omega. I look forward to more!
Proud book worm!
Ms. Briggs keeps it coming and I love how she evolves all her characters! This one is another example of how she can keep a story line strong and well rounded. I love this and if you love the series you'll continue to love it!!! This one brings along a challenge in itself for Mercy she does some clever workings to get through it!
Decent story - awkward reading. Well that's 4 words. Up until now, I had read all the books. This is the first one I had listened to. I think the story is decent and it kept me listening despite the narrator.
The reader has an awkward cadence to her voice and provides inflection and emotion where it doesn't match with the story. It is almost like she is reading a different story in her head while saying the words written in the book. It is disconcerting. Her character voices are not bad except for younger characters which are all read as one character of kid. They don't have individual personalities and are read in a very shrill high voice.
I'll probably go back to reading them.
I'm a professional driver so I have a lot of time on my hands, and I love Sci-fi and Fantasy
Sure, I loved the series as well as this book.
Her performance with this series fits perfectly. It just wouldn't be the same with anyone else. If I were to read any book with these characters, I would only be hearing Lorelei's interpretation in my head.
I was able to tare myself away for sleep, food, and work, but that was about it.
