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.

    "Ms. Briggs’ books are the best in the genre"

    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. (-;

    "Another hit in the series"

    Briggs brings another supernatural thriller to market with this fifth installment in the Mercy Thompson series. One of the great things about this series, Mercedes continues to grow and deepen. This falls in the YA camp. This plot has a nice set of twists. Now that Mercedes has declared her mate, this novel helps clarify the relationships.

    Lolelei King does an outstanding job in narration adding to the delivery. I really think this is a great series. Sure, there is supernatural, and some of my followers don't like that so much (you know who you are) but the supernatural is not the main focus. I recommend the book and there series.

    "Silver Borne"

    Wonderful series! The author and the reader are an incredible team. This series is a great mixture of fantasy, suspense, action and romance. The characters are really rich and fun. The romance between the two main characters really enhances the story, but doesn't bog the story down. I don't read romance novels, but a little romance and sex in a book like this is fun. The author develops the romance between the two characters thru the series and makes it intriguing to watch. It's fun, sexy and easy to believe. Each book is complete enough to stand alone, but it's better to read the books in order since some things are built on what occurred in a previous book, but not dependent on it. The reader is really good and is able to develop voices and stay true to them thru the series; you know exactly who is speaking all the time. I highly recommend this series and have to a lot of people!

    "I can't put it down"

    It took a little bit of time to get into it, but I can't stop listening. It's bad when you listen to it while running and at work! I like the fact that the series isn't repetitive like other serial romance novels. I can't wait until the next one!

    "Just okay for me...."

    The series is usually pretty action packed and the stories are very well thought out and sculpted with a few twists and turns. For this book I felt like the story was a little stagnant. I felt like I was getting a lot of explainations and not a lot of story. Please stop explaining werewolf dominance. It's the fifth book. We get it already. She is still giving explanations for concepts that we already learned in previous books. Constant explanations about dominance is not interesting. By now I thought she would have delved a little more into Mercy and her power as a walker instead there's a lot of talk about dominance/submission. I'm waiting for Mercy to start kicking but and growing into her pack status. I would also love to see her walker power fully develop into something more powerful. Despite being annoyed by the dominance thing, I would still say listen to/read the book. There are some things about the fae that are interesting.

    "This one lost a star from me"

    While I am enjoying this series to an extent is it not my favorite in my large library! This book lost a star from me and my interest! The series is good and the narration is wonderful. It is more of a light hearten paranormal fiction series with less romance, violence and foul language. I did enjoy the world and Briggs created and the series still has potential to move forward. If your on schedule and ready for book 5 you shouldn't be disappointed with Silver Borne.
