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.

I have turned into a huge fan of Patricia Briggs.
Her stories are always fast paced and very interesting.
In "Silver Borne" we get a little more romance, than in the previous books. Which only makes the story, that much better.
All the "Mercy" books are narrated by, Lorelei King. She does a great job of adding depth to the story. Her narration makes "Mercy" come alive.
I would recommend this book.
I finished listening to Moon Called (the 1st book in this series) and immediately bought the whole series in print and read them all in a week. I then bought the audio of the 5th book, Silver Borne, because i loved it so much. To me the 1st and 5th were the best, but the whole series is extremely well done. Wasnt crazy about the voice of the male lead in Moon Called but for the record by Silver Borne this narrator was in her stride and every voice was perfectly suited to the characters. Other great thing about these as audio is that they are not that long but long enough. LOVED THIS BOOK. Nice steamy ending too though this one is the only one in the series that were really focused on romance. FYI- the rumor is there will be a 6th book in 2011. I checked!
It was worth it waiting for this book. I didn't take a break, I had to listen all night through. I highly recommend this entire series!
Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!
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!
I read hundreds of books, including listening to several a week. Well narrated, excellent writing is Such a Joy and all too rare! I hope the quality of this series continues, even as the quantity increases. Patrica Briggs' books are credits well spent.
Avid reader and aspiring writer. I review (to some extent) everything I read. Follow me on twitter! @Jenniloo_BkLvr
Patricia Briggs has me addicted! Mercy is strong, independent and fully capable of the deepest love and loyalty to her friends and family. She is so real in her struggles to maintain her own identity while adapting to the sometimes claustrophobic ties to her new pack. It's so easy to take a work of fantasy fiction and make it so mystical and other-worldly that the characters seem out of reach. I never thought I would say this, but I can really relate with this shape-shifting coyote. LOL. I wish these books would never end.
Love these book because it's gives a happy ending to Sam. I love mercy she doesn't give up to on love ones. great book looking forward to the next installment ; )
I love this whole series but this is one I return to again and again. I love the mystery of it - complex enough to be interesting without feeling like I need to take notes or keep a time line. It's the climactic book for Samuel's character arc, which is delightful and gives you a chance to see him as a wolf in a big way, as well as providing a peek at his long ago past. It's an interesting chapter in the developing story of Adam and Mercy's relationship and how that dovetails with the arc of the "personality" of the pack itself.
But ultimately, what brings me back again and again is the feast of great scenes. I have so many parts bookmarked. It's a wonderful book to pick up and re-read when you just want to be taken away for a little while but don't have time for the full novel. The story hangs together well and provides some excellent development all around, And it has great scenes you can revisit without needing to recall all the details of the story. As a chronic re-reader, that makes it a special kind of gem.
