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.

QUESTION : DOES LISTENING TO AUDIO BOOKS MAKE YOU SMARTER? If so, I'm. Freakin Genius!
Don't get me wrong, I liked the last book in Patricia Briggs' Mercy Series. It is just that for some reason or another, Mercy is always a little better when Adam and her are separated for some of the story. With this book you get it all. Mercy at her finest . Solving the most complex situations.
My only complaint, is that I wish Adam and Mercy's sex scenes where a little more detailed. I would like to know what they were thinking. All and all great bool. Well worth the credit.
Dear Mercy and Adam Haupman. Maybe it's time for a little sit-down with the local vamps to find out what's on their calendar for the next 12 months or so. You know, coordinate a little better. It seems that you all are always on the defensive. I don't know... What do you think?
I just seems that invariably, someone outside the pack is causing trouble for one or more of the wolves, Sometimes the werewolves are caught off guard unexpectedly. This isn't the firs time this is happened.
Maybe the Marrock should come down there are kick some werewolf and vampire ass, and things would settle down some. Surely, there someone in the pack with psychic powers you could consult to avoid the B.S. that comes your way on a regular basis.
What you think? Get Charles and Anna to kick some butt? Huh?
It's a fun read, like the rest of them, but not much happens to move the overarching plot along.
Love to read!
I love this series! Mercy Thompson is one of my favorite characters out of the many series I keep up with. She is strong and independent without being overly aggressive or defensive. I love the way Briggs continues to let Mercy evolve and grow. That was especially apparent in this book, which showcased Mercy's abilities. I also really like the supporting characters in the books. Many of them made appearances and had bigger roles in this book.
First, let me say that I love this series and follow it closely. However, I'm not exactly sure what went wrong with this addition. I wasn't necessarily unhappy with the events as they unfolded, but I was not thrilled with the way they related to the ending. If I had to put a label on tale, I would have to say that it was poorly constructed and left me feeling unfulfilled and relieved that it was finally over.
As always, Lorelei King did an outstanding job with the narration. I have always said that in the hands of an accomplished narrator, even a mundane story will shine.
I wish every audio book producer would pay closer attention to the people they pick to narrate their stories. There are hundreds audio books that I just flat will not buy, or listen to, because of the person they picked to do the narration. Loved the books, but hate the acting ability or voice of the narrator. I end up reading the hard copy edition of many, many books that are currently available in audio format.
Educator, mother and avid reader!
I loved this latest installment. I downloaded this book and could not believe I stayed up all night listening to it! That has happened only once or twice in my life. Fast paced, funny and touching are a few discriptives that describe the newest adventure Briggs takes her readers on.
Another fast paced fun book. There's been a couple books in the series that turned up the drama and turned down the action. This aint one of 'em.
I would listen again. Patricia Briggs has created a universe with great tension between groups that have been fleshed out well enough to make us care about their competing needs. Her last book left that framework and suffered for it. This book reminds me why I enjoyed the series so much in the first place.
I always enjoy Mercy but this one was a bit better than the last. I hate to say too much because I don't want to give anything away but it was awfully good.
The narrator did a very nice job.
The worst of it is having to wait another year or two for the next one.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
I just love the Mercy Thompson series and I was not disappointed with the newest installment. Mercy and Jesse go off shopping and come back to find the pack missing. With a few allies and a lot of spunk Mercy goes to work trying to get them back and figuring out who attacked the pack. I wont go in to the details of the story but will just say that this is a great story. The action parts kept things interesting but there were heartwarming parts as well (I just love Mercy and Adam together...sigh!). I'd highly recommend it and am already wanting to read it again (It was just that good!). 2 thumbs up! :D
