Silver Borne: Mercy Thompson, Book 5

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great Series!"

    I tried this series because it was similar to some others I had listed to. I like paranormal books but with some funny in them and some romance in them, this series had them all. I wizzed right through the series and waiting anxiously for the next book to come out. If you like the Sookies Stackhouse books and the Laurell Hamilton/Anita Baker books you'll like this series. Also the new Darynda Jones new series. They all have the same to offer and they are all great!

    "Great Book and Good Narrator"

    I loved the book and the narrator did a great job with the voices. The whole series is great, and I can't wait for the 6th book to come out in January 2011.

    I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!

    "Fun distraction"

    If you like urban fantasy romance, you will enjoy the Mercy Thompson series. Who knew that returning a borrowed book could be so dangerous or even remotely interesting? Briggs does a fantastic job creating a rich and colorful world. Her characters are dynamic and full, and I want to know more about all of them. The Mercy Thompson series is a simple read and useful as a good distraction from more mundane tasks like workouts, long drives, or data collection.

    A working stiff who loves to read. My taste range from Syfy and fantasy to history and politics. Read at you own risk!

    "Good book"

    Good book. Mercy Thompson is a great heroine and I hope to have more of her books soon and much longer storyline.

    "Great Story!"

    Another great addition to the Mercy Thompson series. This is suspenseful story with a great plot; I could not stop listening to the book and actually finished it in one day!

    "MY FAVORITE BOOK IN THE SERIES!"

    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!
