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!
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.
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. (-;
