Publisher's Summary

Mercy Thompson has been hailed as "a heroine who continues to grow and yet always remains true to herself."* Now she's back, and she'll soon discover that when the fae stalk the human world, it's the children who suffer....

Tensions between the fae and humans are coming to a head. And when coyote shapeshifter Mercy and her Alpha werewolf mate, Adam, are called upon to stop a rampaging troll, they find themselves with something that could be used to make the fae back down and forestall out-and-out war: a human child stolen long ago by the fae.

Defying the most powerful werewolf in the country, the humans, and the fae, Mercy, Adam, and their pack choose to protect the boy no matter what the cost. But who will protect them from a boy who is fire touched?

    Any additional comments?

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this whole series. My one complaint is that several of the characters were missing their usual voices. Lorelei King is an awesome narrator who brings depth and interest to each of the characters, both male and female. The voices and accents have been consistent through the whole series until this book, where they suddenly were forgotten. If you haven't followed the whole series, you may not notice but it is disconcerting when a certain characters suddenly have different voices and therefor personalities. Hence 4 stars instead of 5. I am still looking forward to the next book in the series.

    I love urban fantasy, paranormal romance, YA, and dystopian. My favorite authors are Ilona Andrews and Kim Harrison.

    "There are no words to express how much I loved this book!"

    I have adored every Mercy book, but this one was the best one yet. It was absolutely fantastic. Patricia Briggs is an amazingly talented author. You really can't go wrong with a Patricia Briggs book.
    The narrator, Lorelei King is one of the best narrators I have ever listened to. She preformed this book so beautifully. She can do the snarky, sexy, funny, touching, and gut wrenching roles this book calls for incredibly well. Plus she does a sexy male voice that is like chocolate melting on the tip of your tongue! This is an incredible blend of amazing author and narrator that makes the audiobook version so...well there are no words.
    Happy listening!

    "Another Awesome Mercy adventure!!"

    This was another awesome addition to the Mercy Thompson series! I can never get tired of these stories, they are full of action, suspense, magic, and lots of "pack politics." I love how Adam and Mercy work together as a team, they are the perfect Alpha leaders. We are introduced to new and interesting characters.

    As usual, The Gray Lords are up to their games, and Mercy and the pack find themselves in the middle of the Fae conflict, but they will not back down. They have declared to protect their territory and the boy who escaped from the Fae.

    If you are a Mercy Thompson Fan, you will definitely want to add this story to your collection.

    This story was well worth the credit, and the time spent listening to the story.

    Story
    "War? Peace? Warewolf vs. Faye"

    This ninth installment is very well done. A plot that keeps you listening. This is a tough one to put down. There are parts of this book you will want to rewind and listen to several times in a good way. Mercedes and Adam take center stage as everyone clashes. We get to see many of our favorites as this story unfolds. Brigss finds a way to weave important contemporary messages into this supernatural narrative -- in a subtle way.

    This story has a hint of romance, but is mostly action. It is fast paced and doesn't stall anywhere. Those who like supernatural will enjoy this. You will miss a great deal if you don't listen to the earlier novels. You can read this first, but you might be lost because of the many characters and the nuances as Briggs relies on the backstories of the past. Kings narration is superb.

    I highly recommend this novel. I am anxious to listen to the next installment. Thumbs up and give it a read.

    "Briggs and King are an awesome team!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy, mystery, sci-fi or drama. This will make you laugh and cry and feel joy and pain. True storytellers make everything better.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercy is my favorite character but all of the characters are wonderfully made.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voices of the different characters bring them to life and help you see them clearly.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, it made me laugh and cry. All of the books in this series have that effect on me.


    Any additional comments?

    Any of the books in this series are great but if you start with Moon Called you can see the development of all the characters from the start. I love this series and this book is a gem.

    "Hopefully not the end..."

    A lot of loose ends get tied up here and the end is a lovely, neat package of completion. While it makes me sigh with contentment to have this books end well and see my favorite characters in good places, I'm very hopeful that this doesn't suggest an end to the Mercy series.

    "I love Mercy Thompson, and Patricia Briggs writes"

    Patricia Briggs writes with so smoothly. It's almost poetic. Great story. Love the love between Mercedes and Adam. It's great. I love that she's kickass. She's a strong woman with a man who loves her for being the way she is.

    "Excellent as always"
    Would you listen to Fire Touched again? Why?

    I will listen to this book again. I always listen to good books twice. I seem to gain more detail from the second listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fire Touched?

    Not an action sequence it was the scene when Adam and Mercy's pack are disavowed by the leader of all the Werewolf packs - by the man who raised Mercy. I was stunned as were Mercy and Adam.


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favourite?

    I love the way Lorelei portrays Adam. Patricia has written a rounded character and Lorelei's performance helps in the development.
    Lorelei Kings shows a wide selection of very stable voices an excellent narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    The stage is set for more stories. I love the fact that Adam and Mercy have a loving and stable marriage which strengthens the plot lines. In this story they offer protection to a child who had been abducted by the fae with consequences.
    I will keep my eyes open for the next book in the series.

    "Wonderful!"

    Time passed too fast 😂! I really like Mercy Thompson Books so when i decided to listen to the last book out (i think) it was rather daunting. I feared they the voices would wayy more différent than in my head (Adam's voice was definitely not what i hope but it's alright since it comes from a woman voice) but it was amazing! I really enjoyed it almost more than reading the books itself (almost, because really. Reading books it's a whole new world opening)

    "Great series and narrator"

    Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series is a very good read and even better when narrated by Lorelei King . BUT yet again Audible do not have the complete series on their UK site . This is unbelievably frustrating. I have e mailed them in the past but no joy . For that reason only I would hesitate to recommend this series . You'll end up frustrated too !

    "A great story"

    The stories of Mercedes and the werewolves have never failed to delight me. Fire Touched is good on its own merit, but will make more sense of you have read the previous books in the series. The reading worked well for me, but I only really notice if something doesn't seem right, and I didn't notice anything about the performance here at all.
