    "Another excellent installment!"

    One nit pick: Porsche is a two syllable word. Por-SHUH.

    I'm glad Ben isn't the irredeemable jerk he had been to date. Since much more info would be a spoiler, I'll leave it to that.

    Adam tends to be a bit two dimensional, his character is tolerable with flashes of likeability, you are given enough contextual clues to help you flesh out his suitability as a protagonist.

    Since most paranormal romance/romance in general are fairly formulaic, it's the characters and the interaction between them that distinguish them. The formula isn't avoidable, so a writer has to take it and make you care about the characters, believe the unbelievable and keep you in the mind set of accepting it as normal. Patricia Briggs has a talent for weaving in canine psychology, human psychology and not making characters homogenous. Until you've written a few stories, you don't understand how difficult it is to write a character who doesn't start becoming you or someone else you know.
    Dominant personalities aren't all painted as aggressive, which becomes tiresome with some writers. Submissive characters aren't all one stereotype, either.
    I'm also guessing Ms. Briggs is the proud owner of working lines German Shedders....err..Shepherds.
    Thank you for another fun book!

    Story
    "The series is going down hill"

    This book is primarily about the fae as Mercy tries to prove her friend, Zee, did not commit murder.

    She is constantly in situations where she needs to be rescued by one of her friends and even calls herself 'stupid.' She makes a lot of mistakes that someone else has to fix. That is why I feel the series is going downhill. Mercy was not the strong woman she has been in former books. I am surprised that she came back from her “experience” as well as she did.

    I don’t want to give anything away, but this is by far the most graphically violent book in the series. I am glad that Ms. Briggs didn't go into too much detail on the specific event and had the rest of the cast supporting Mercy through her trauma.

    "Good Story, But..."

    Great story, I loved the ending, but I hated Mercy's attitude toward her whole Sam or Adam dilemma. Neither character is a good fit for Mercy, and are both quite dangerous. Mercy even comments at one point that she is afraid of them. I feel this makes her seem weak willed. It almost sounds like abuse victim mentality at one point. It takes an otherwise well written, strong female lead and cast her in the role of an abused damsel. One of the characters even says to her, "You are mine now, and I'm keeping you" and she accepts it! For a supposedly strong, independent, and downright obstinate female lead, this seems out of character.

    "ehh."

    the first two were great, and i will listen to book 4, but this one went off the rails early and just never got much better. perhaps her publisher had a deadline or something, but it seemed like everything from chapter 3 to 11 or so was useless fluff. everyday tasks and lost plot line. culminating with the rape and subsequent public embatrassment of the main character, i was left wondering if the author had a more serious issue with the publisher and if this was retribution. generally...just not good. and i was dissappointed by the repetitive borrowed theme across many of these fantasy books with female leads. two males pining away for the same woman while she cant make up her mind, solves the crime, and then sorta chooses while the males patiently wait without fighting. naieve and ridiculous. i really enjoyed the author's werewolf series, and this was doing well right up to book 3. heres hoping 4 gets back on track. suggest skipping this one and just getting the recap in 4.

    "AWESOMEEEE"

    I love this audible and I love that they use the same person for all of Mercy Thompson series. Patricia Briggs is one of the best. I read her books and listen to the audible over and over again
