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 strong installment in the series"
    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I just listened to Evanovich's Not. 19 - and it really reduced my enjoyment of this story. The voices were not unique to this title - and hearing Adam's voice the same as Ranger's reduced my enjoyment. Additionally it was difficult to tell the vampires apart and the accent chosen was too Dracula.

    "Another great addition to the series."

    Both my daughter and I love the Mercy Thomson series. I have listened to the series at least three times all the way through... My teenage daughter also enjoys the series and has read it more than once..

    This book takes story lines developed in both this series and the overall Mercy-virse and brings them together nicely. The story has action, humor, and characters that are easy to fall in love with.

    This series is fairly clean of sexual situations and when one occurs they are described in a tasteful manner so I would recommended it for a teen audience. The other series in the Mercy-virse "Alpha and Omaga" is a little more explicit but still not too bad.

    "A fabulous continuation! Worth waiting for!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Frost Burned to be better than the print version?

    Yes! I love listening to this series over and over again.


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

    Faith Hunter's series - Jane/Big Cat have courage and vulnerability equal to Mercy's.


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

    They are seamless and genuine and allow the listener to enter into Mercy's world without interruption.

    What did you like best about Frost Burned? What did you like least?

    loved the other books - great story that that end like a flat diet soda


    If you’ve listened to books by Patricia Briggs before, how does this one compare?

    not her best work (good filler)


    Did Frost Burned inspire you to do anything?

    wait to see what happens next


    Any additional comments?

    this book is probably setting the stage for something to come

    "Better than River Marked"

    This one was much , much better than River Marked.
    It is not every time you can safely say "This book was worth the wait". Lots of action, a bit of humour and all the familiar characters you love to hear from.

    Looking forward to Mercy and Adam's next adventure.

    Story
    "Too much backtracking..."
    If you could sum up Frost Burned in three words, what would they be?

    Suspense. Repetitive. WTF


    Would you be willing to try another book from Patricia Briggs? Why or why not?

    YES!!!! I really like the Mercy Thompson series; however, these books are not meant to be a "stand alone" read, so since the reader has been following the series - there is really no need to "backtrack" and re-reference other books and known "facts" so much. I think that nearly 30% of this book was explaining to the reader - yet again (YAWN) - what an alpha is and what a dominant does etc, etc, etc....


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

    The narrator is EXCELLENT!!! She brings the characters to life with the proper dialects, inflections, humor. Just absolutely PERFECT!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Stop "padding" the book with previously (throughout six other books) stated facts and don't backtrack the action to other books for reference. The "print" paperback is already pretty thin, no reason to make these books into "pamphlets".

    Story
    "Hi-octane action"

    This installment of Mercy's story is filled with action. From page 1 she gets tangled up in another attack on the pack, but this time not one, not two members of the pack are attacked and kidnapped - it's the whole pack. Who would be so capable or stupid to attack and kidnap a pack of werewolves? That's what Mercy needs to find out. And if she's going to save her wolves, she needs to do it fast, all the while making sure the bad guys don't get their hands on more hostages.

    There's magic, there are supernatural creatures, as always. But there are also paramilitary mercenaries and government conspiracies. Someone very near and dear to Mercy's heart dies, but our favorite little coyote is not going to let grief slow her down.

    Story
    "Mercy Beats Odds--Vampires Again!"
    What did you love best about Frost Burned?

    I love Mercy's independent spirit and how she has settled into being the Alpha's mate and #2 in the pack. The story didn't seem to have the punch that earlier books had but maybe that's just me. I certainly will buy Book 8 when it becomes available.


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

    It compares to the other Mercy Thompson books, of course, but beyond that I haven't read any similar books with such a strong female protagonist.


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

    How many ways can I say how good Lorelei King is? Her inflection, her accents, her way of getting Adam's growl just right (be still my heart...pitter-pat-pitter-pat) and how she makes even Stephan the Vampire sound sexy. She is an excellent narrator, perhaps 2nd only to Davina Porter in my book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I get hooked on Mercy and want the stories to go on and on. Of course, I have all the books in audible and paper formats so I can just pick the first book, Moon Called, and start the series over.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the series and commend Ms. Briggs for keeping it interesting and fun.

    I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.

    Story
    "Vampire politics"

    I am a huge fan of Patricia Briggs, but this book wasn't her best. I was impressed that in this one unlike her other books you had Adams point of view on some things. That was a nice touch.

    This was a good book but it didn't captivate me like her previous books have. It was a good book but I can't say that it was the best. I was expecting more and I didn't get it. I understand that Mercy will almost always save the day, but after a while of her thrill seeking ideas get tiring and I think in this book it was too much.

    It is my opinion that the series didn't necessarily needed this book to continue forward. It is a good book to pass the time, but if you are looking for the action filled books of the past this isn't the one. Yes there is action, but it so predictable that it is almost not worth the read.
