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.

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.
I've listened to all the Mercy Series and this one doesn't disappoint, Its a good mixture of reality and fiction I hope there are many more to come.
Mercy & Peter's last words
Lorelei does a great job as narrator
When Mercy and Adam got together after he escaped his capture
Out of the Patricia Briggs Mercy series it's good. It feels more like a stepping stone to the next in the series.
Mercy of course!! I love strong sexy women !!
The way Mercy connects with her mate. Now thats a relationship attribute that gets me every time !!
I really enjoy this series. I think because of that I'm very biased.
