Publisher's Summary

Mercy Thompson returns in the seventh novel in the number-one New York Times best-selling series.

Mercy Thompson's life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman - the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack - has made her a stepmother to his daughter, Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy's life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more....

After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can't reach Adam - or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They've all been abducted.

Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam's disappearance may be related - and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.

    "One of the better ones"

    Have to say that I almost didn't listen to this installment, thinking that I was kinda let down with the last book. I did enjoy this book however, as it brought in more of the old characters, Stephan being one of my favorites.
    It's a non-stop story of kidnapping, finding bad guys, and dealing with the problem. Brings in group efforts from the werewolves and the vampires.
    Was kinda disappointed with all the political views in the story, but seems that's what celebrities do these days, is to speak their peace, and Hollywood is notorious for it. I really doubt Ms. Briggs could foresee just how either political party would react to the real discovery of werewolves. But, it's her book and she can write whatever she fancies.
    Love this narrator for the Mercy voice, and glad I didn't bypass the book.

    I am a voracious reader (average about 4-5 Audible books a week, in addition to those I "eyeball".) I have been hooked on recorded books since the time of cassettes/CDs and was thrilled when I became an Audible member in 2007. I find reader reviews good guides to spending my credits, so have finally decided to write a few (although, I would rather be reading!)

    Story
    "Series is back to exciting pack action!"

    I felt the previous novel in this series, River Marked, suffered by being outside of the usual Spokane, Washington setting and not including all the intriguing supporting cast, foe and friend. Briggs has recaptured a bit of what made the earlier books great in this volume.

    I particularly enjoyed the sections from Adam's point of view. I do think the book could have been improved by a little more involvement/development of the supporting characters (Briggs has so many great characters to develop -- Stephan, Tad, Warren, The Moor, etc.), but these volumes read more like a romance series than paranormal. That complaint aside, we saw Mercy get a lot of action (of the kick butt variety) and that never disappoints. Perhaps Briggs will write some novellas or short stories focusing on some of these characters?

    The narrator, King, delivers as usual.

    In any case, I highly recommend this book. It is fast-paced and well written, has lots of action and includes many of the characters from previous volumes in the series.

    *******************************spoiler alert*****************************************************

    One bit of ominous (in my opinion) foreshadowing to the series is the hint about Mercy/Adam having a baby. When Mercy gets asked the question "When you are you and Dad having a baby", she crashes and kills "the Rabbit", her beloved car. Since "the rabbit died" is a slang phrase to indicate a woman is pregnant (and elsewhere in the book Mercy thinks about her impending closing of her mechanic's shop), there is little doubt we will see a baby in the future. So often, though, book series (and especially T.V. series) experience a "jump the shark" transition when a munchkin is introduced. But, I will give Briggs the "benefit of the doubt" and continue reading, as perhaps she will not let the series become too domestic (although, it amuses me to think of the werewolf pack babysitting and changing diapers.)

    "Terrific Listen"

    A little disappointed with the vampire fight at the end, the author did not manage that as well as she could, but the writing and story line were excellent.

    Character development is excellent as usual. The Vocal performance can't be done better by anyone.

    I recommend this to anyone wanting to be distracted and entertained for a couple of days.

    "Best in the series so far!"

    I usually have trouble getting invested in the Mercy Thompson stories. It usually takes about a third of the book before I become really invested. No so with this book. It was action packed from the start. It had real stakes and real consequences. We get to see things from Adam's point of view for the first time. Lorelei King does a great job, as always. The only thing keeping me from giving her 5 stars is when their are to characters in a scene late in the book with accents, despite coming from different parts of the world, they have almost the same accent and it can be difficult to tell who is speaking. Beyond that, she does a marvelous job.

    "Wonderful"

    The story just keeps getting better and better especially when all the seemingly abstract pieces fall into place. Lorelei King effectively brings this story to life with her varying accents. I honestly wonder if she's really narrating these books on her own.

    Once again, another wonderful story; another wonderful performance.

    I love Patricia Briggs books, and Lorelei does such a great job narrating them! The distinct voices that she uses for different characters adds to the enjoyment for me.

    "Mercy, Mercy"

    As with everyone else who gets to enjoy these books and become a part of Adam's pack. I am hooked on Patricia Briggs, Mercy Thompson books. Each new book opens up a whole world of wonder and excitement. I look forward to each new book and the ability of this author to find new ways to share her talent with her readers.
