I love the entire Mercy Thompson series and this latest installment wasn't a let down. Nice plot, good pace and enjoyment that the story was able to involve, to some extent, all the old characters from previous books. If you enjoy the series this one will continue to please.
Just when you start to think a series can't go any farther, a good storyteller can surprise you. I have followed both of Ms. Briggs' series since she first began them. Another great listen. She knows how to keep you following along and then zaps you with a twist in the story you never expected. For those who haven't followed along, she doesn't leave you behind. Important parts of the story get their background explained so you don't get lost.
Yes. You have a fabulous narrator reading this series. If I would have read this to myself I would have heard the narrators voice in my head anyway because I got the audible version of all the prior books.
Her closest friends knew something was wrong right away when she started taking orders.
Her voices are wonderful. I have heard her read the whole story and it just wouldn't be the same with anyone else. I actually look for books based on the work she has done.
Yes, but the whole Mercy Thompson series is one of my favorites. I have listened to all of them more than once.
Wife to sometimes neglected husband (due to listening to audiobooks) and mother to adult children. I am a relatively recent avid reader/listener, only really starting to read for pleasure a few years ago but now am thoroughly addicted.
I was concerned that too much time has passed since I read the last book of this series but I was pleasantly surprised that I immediately fell back into the storyline. There were some references which I had forgotten from the prior books. This series follows along the same timeline of the Alpha & Omega series and there were references in this book about book 3 of that series (which falls in the timeline after Book 6 of this series). I highly recommend reading both!
I found this book to be ok! It was interesting, but I don't feel the same fire I used to feel with the first five books that I listened to. Perhaps it is becauase Adam and Mercy are already together now and before I loved the little dance around their feelings that they used to do. Don't get me wrong it was a lot better than the last book which I did not really like much at all, and after waiting over a year for this book, it was worth the wait, but didn't have me jumping at the end. Still, I cannot wait until the next book.
The Mercy Thompson series continues to hold my interest with all the new twists and turns that the story takes. Mercy and her friends (and enemies) still enthrall me! I hope Patricia will continue to spin these marvelous tales! I also love Lorelei King as the narrator.
After waiting for so long for this book I was a little disappointed It kept my interest but it wasn't gripping like I couldn't put it down or anything. But it was still alright..
Patricia Briggs is one of the best authors of paranormal fiction and this book is an example why. It continues the story of Mercy Thompson, a Native American who is a coyote shapeshifter and married to the local werewolf pack's alpha. Action starts at chapter one and continues at a fast pace through the entire book. Briggs has a unique universe with the Faye and Werewolves outed among humans but Vampires and the other things that go bump in the night still in hiding.
Frost Burned is a very good read and I recommend it highly. It is book 7 of the series but can be read on it's own merit. Still, if you haven't started the series go grab Moon Called on your favorite medium. You won't regret it.
Lorelei King is great as Mercy.
Absolutely love to read, anything! Well maybe not Western or biographies but other than that anything. Dystopian is quickly becoming my fav!
Briggs has made a come back with Frost Burned. The last few Mercy books that I have read have been just blah for me. I believe Briggs has redeemed herself with this one. So glad that she is back on track.
The story was wonderful and I love Mercy, Adam, Asil, Ben (actually all the pack we got to see) and Stephen.
The one thing I really wish would have been better was the accent Ms King used for Asil. It sounded more Dracula like than Spanish to me (her accent for Stephen and Marsila also sounds more Dracula than Italian, but since they are vampires, it made sense to me). Other than that complaint, I think the narration was very well done.
