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.

    "More Stephan Please"

    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.

    "Another great book"

    I love this Series!!!!! I wish there were more books available, I hope she is writing more. You won't be disappointed if you like the supernaturals. And Don't miss the other series that she writes that is some what of an off shoot with the Montana relatives. Just starting that one and hope it is as good as this one! Lorelei is the best narrator, very easy to listen to.

    "Great Story--Use Your Imagination!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I love the storyline. I love Lorelei King's narration. She brings the characters to life. I have recommended the entire series to a friend. Anyone who likes romance and adventure would like this series.

    I am so happy that she reads the Stephanie Plum novels. Can't wait.

    The Patricia Briggs' stories are so riveting that re-listening is almost required. Every time I listen to a book a 2nd or even 3rd time, I pick up more nuances in the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think it has to be Mercy although she does a good job with the vampires and the wolves, too. I liked all the wolf characters and Stefan. The Fairy Queen sounded evil but she was not my favorite.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    I like the way she changes her voice to get just the right inflection. You can actually hear Adam growl.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If you thought your neighbors were bad, just wait and see who Mercy lives next to.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the entire series. Ms. King is a terrific performer. She brought the story to life.

    "Best in series so far"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! The narrator is great, and I cannot wait find out what Mercy and her friends are up to next.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The storyline reveals more about the mysterious fae, and the characters evolve in each book. They feel like family!

    "Love this series and Great Narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Silver Borne the most enjoyable?

    The stories make you want to listen until it is completed and buy the next one. I could close my eyes and feel like I was standing right beside her.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Love them all. It makes you feel like you are one of their friends.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There is no way to pick a favorite scene. The whole series is my favorite - I have listened to many books like this and this is at the top of the list.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Mercy For Us All


    Any additional comments?

    I have finished the series and Hope a new book come out very soon. Having Mercy withdrawals.

    "This is a wonderful series."

    In most series, when the main character begins a serious relationship (Especially if the main character is female) the series begins to fall flat. This is not so with Mercy.
    P.Briggs has found a way to develop her character without losing the heart of Mercy and what makes her special.
    L.King is Mercy I hope she continues the stellar job she is doing.
