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.

    "Another Briggs Winner"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    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.

    Story
    "Another excellent Mercy Book"
    What did you love best about Frost Burned?

    The story was wonderful and I love Mercy, Adam, Asil, Ben (actually all the pack we got to see) and Stephen.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.

    "Biased"
    Where does Frost Burned rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Out of the Patricia Briggs Mercy series it's good. It feels more like a stepping stone to the next in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercy of course!! I love strong sexy women !!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The way Mercy connects with her mate. Now thats a relationship attribute that gets me every time !!


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy this series. I think because of that I'm very biased.

    "Patty, you have done it again!"

    As always, the latest installment of Mercy's story rocks! I have been anxiously awaiting this one since march of 2011, since River Marked came out. Hard to believe that it has really been 2 years since we last visited the pack!

    I love that we got to see Mercy, Adam, Jesse, Kyle, and Stefan as well as a few others. I would have loved to see more of Zee and Ben and Darryl, as well as the rest of the pack.

    I was extremely shocked to see Asil, The Moor, pop up (refer to the Alpha & Omega series). I love that both series can flow into each other so flawlessly! Often times when I read spin off books, its a completely different story, and does not mesh well with the original story line from the first story set.

    I would have loved to see Mercy take on more of a motherly role, even though she and Jesse are so close in age, but I guess that's what makes her such a cool step-mom! She is more of a bestie than a parent!

    Even though I loved the story as is, I felt that.....something....I am not sure what exactly, was missing. I guess we will have to hold off for another installment?

    Also, I would love to see Mercy and Adam have a baby! They need one, I think! Also, it would be interesting for Charles & Anna (again, refer to Alpha & Omega series) to make an appearance in a Mercy book. It would be something to see, having an Omega near this pack.

    Would I recommend this book? Absolutely! How could I not? I have been in love with these characters since 2009! 7 books in what, 3 1/2 years? Keep up the awesome work Patricia! And thank you so much for keeping Lorelei King on this project! It is always so disappointing when a new narrator pops into a series in the middle.

    Story
    "AHHHH, I read it too fast!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Patricia Briggs is back with Mercy, Adam, their pack, and her allies. In addition, Patricia Briggs brings a little help to Mercy's door from Charles and Anna's world. Not only do you get to see the ins and outs of friendship, pack, and a little bit of magic, you get to see into more of what makes Mercy and Adam tick, what is in their hearts and minds.


    What other book might you compare Frost Burned to and why?

    I think Frost Burned was similar to Iron Kissed from the standpoint of all of Mercy's friends, allies, etc... are engaged in this story. You are able to see where folks are at and what is happening a little bit in their lives while Mercy is once again plunging into danger to save her loved ones.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is when Patricia Briggs gets inside Adam's head. You get to see how he feels about Mercy, why she is important to him, and how much she means to him. Briggs has always been good about get up close and personal in what Mercy thinks and feels about herself and those around her, this time she does the same with Adam and goes back and forth between the two of them.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Mercy, your eyes are gold, I didn't know they could change color."


    Any additional comments?

    Loralie King does a great job of narrating the story. If I had any complaints at all, it was that I zipped through this book way too fast and now how to wait before Patricia Briggs puts out her next book......sigh......

    Story
    "Another Excellent Mercy Thompson Book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, as long as they've read the previous Mercy Thompson books. The story line has been compelling from the very beginning. For some reason I felt the story was a little stilted compared to the others, but I'll re-listen to it in another week or two and see if I feel the same way after round 2.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercy and Adam are the two main characters, and have to be favorites. But I also really like Ben, he's evolving into a semi decent person (werewolf) but he's an ass, and reminds me of some of my friends who also have asshole tendencies :) Warren and Kyle are a great couple and hilarious, and Jessi is always fun. I could go on and on, but you may get it that I pretty much like the whole cast of characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked it when Coyote pops back in the picture and Mercy draws the poisoned silver from Adam, I'd have loved to have seen his face at that moment.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    A couple, but I don't want to add a lot of spoilers to this review.


    Any additional comments?

    The whole series is well written and entertaining. And the spin off series with Charles starting with Alpha and Omega are well written and entertaining as well.
