All-new action in the number-one New York Times best-selling urban fantasy series.
When mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book she'd previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down. It seems the book contains secret knowledge - and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands.
And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side - leaving Mercy to cover for him, lest his own father declare Sam's life forfeit.
All in all, Mercy has had better days. And if she isn't careful, she might not have many more to live.
Have Mercy: listen to another Mercy Thompson chiller.

Taken by the Faye Queen, Mercy is found by her Alpha after she joins the frayed line between Marcy and her Alpha....such a good and fine message......we love Marcy
I love this series. It's definitely in my top five. Patricia Briggs has such great stories to tell and I can't wait for more to come.
It's a great book. Great story, beautiful, romantic, exciting, lovable and intriguing charactes...
Tuff one...... There are many.
She's makes a very believable Mercy!
When Ariana meets Samuel again.
I am big into reading about paranormal societies but the Briggs books develop the social structure and expectations for the various paranormal societies like none of the other books in the category. In this book Mercy needs to understand the dynamic of the pack and she must also understand how to deal with the Fae to keep herself and her friends alive and unharmed. For instance, the Fae do not lie but the word games they play can have devastating results if the bargain is not carefully constructed.
Ms. Briggs’ books are the best in the genre I have read lately. The characters are beginning to feel like old friends. Every time I finish one of Ms. Briggs’ books, I cannot wait for the next adventure. I love this series. The books are quick reads and action packed. I order the next in the series before I finish the one I am half way through. I wouldn’t want to miss anything. (-;
So far this book is my favorite in the Mercy Thompson Series. It was just so enjoyable. As always there were multiple storylines ...problems with Samuel...dates with Adam as their relationship develops...an angry fae...a really old fae that is a blast from someone's past...murder...attempted murder...some really intense werewolf fights...magic....mayhem...a couple of budding romances and so much more!..thank you again Ms. King for an awesome narration!
I missed Stephan in this book and I am hoping that the next book is more about Mercy, the Werewolves and Vampires and less about the fae which are the main focus in this book.
The Samuel plot was interesting, but resolved to quickly and easily.
