Publisher's Summary

Mercy Thompson returns in the seventh novel in the number-one New York Times best-selling series.

Mercy Thompson's life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman - the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack - has made her a stepmother to his daughter, Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy's life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more....

After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can't reach Adam - or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They've all been abducted.

Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam's disappearance may be related - and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.

    "Another great story"

    I love this series. This story was fast paced and very exciting. Plus they brought Stefan back and introduced Azeel to Mercy. I highly recommend and can't wait for the next one

    Story
    "One of the better ones"

    Have to say that I almost didn't listen to this installment, thinking that I was kinda let down with the last book. I did enjoy this book however, as it brought in more of the old characters, Stephan being one of my favorites.
    It's a non-stop story of kidnapping, finding bad guys, and dealing with the problem. Brings in group efforts from the werewolves and the vampires.
    Was kinda disappointed with all the political views in the story, but seems that's what celebrities do these days, is to speak their peace, and Hollywood is notorious for it. I really doubt Ms. Briggs could foresee just how either political party would react to the real discovery of werewolves. But, it's her book and she can write whatever she fancies.
    Love this narrator for the Mercy voice, and glad I didn't bypass the book.

    I am a voracious reader (average about 4-5 Audible books a week, in addition to those I "eyeball".) I have been hooked on recorded books since the time of cassettes/CDs and was thrilled when I became an Audible member in 2007. I find reader reviews good guides to spending my credits, so have finally decided to write a few (although, I would rather be reading!)

    Story
    "Series is back to exciting pack action!"

    I felt the previous novel in this series, River Marked, suffered by being outside of the usual Spokane, Washington setting and not including all the intriguing supporting cast, foe and friend. Briggs has recaptured a bit of what made the earlier books great in this volume.

    I particularly enjoyed the sections from Adam's point of view. I do think the book could have been improved by a little more involvement/development of the supporting characters (Briggs has so many great characters to develop -- Stephan, Tad, Warren, The Moor, etc.), but these volumes read more like a romance series than paranormal. That complaint aside, we saw Mercy get a lot of action (of the kick butt variety) and that never disappoints. Perhaps Briggs will write some novellas or short stories focusing on some of these characters?

    The narrator, King, delivers as usual.

    In any case, I highly recommend this book. It is fast-paced and well written, has lots of action and includes many of the characters from previous volumes in the series.

    *******************************spoiler alert*****************************************************

    One bit of ominous (in my opinion) foreshadowing to the series is the hint about Mercy/Adam having a baby. When Mercy gets asked the question "When you are you and Dad having a baby", she crashes and kills "the Rabbit", her beloved car. Since "the rabbit died" is a slang phrase to indicate a woman is pregnant (and elsewhere in the book Mercy thinks about her impending closing of her mechanic's shop), there is little doubt we will see a baby in the future. So often, though, book series (and especially T.V. series) experience a "jump the shark" transition when a munchkin is introduced. But, I will give Briggs the "benefit of the doubt" and continue reading, as perhaps she will not let the series become too domestic (although, it amuses me to think of the werewolf pack babysitting and changing diapers.)

    "Another great from Patricia Briggs"

    This is a seamless continuation of the ongoining and endearing life story of Mercedes Thompson. Patricia Briggs does her homework regarding the cultural perspectives of her characters, presents very clear and coherent cultures and world views for her non-humans and delivers a consistent world of terror, joy, sorrow and love.

    The books in this series just get better and better. Lorelei King is an excellent narrator and listening to her makes the book even better.

    Story
    "Black Friday Vampire"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is an action/ mystery packed book that even if you are not into paranormal you would enjoy reading or listening to. Many of the secrets that Mercy is keeping is revealed in this book.


    What other book might you compare Frost Burned to and why?

    The vampire intrigue that is so prevalent in the Faith Hunter series of Jane Yellowrock is very much a part of this. The heroine in both books are of American Indian decent and in both series there are werewolves, vampires, witches, and both are trying to research their native past.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Lorelei King does an excellent professional performance as in all her works.


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

    Saving Mercy while she tries to save the world.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent book, it is a stand alone but is much better with the rest of the series.

    "Easy Listening"

    With each book I listen to I am reminded that Mercy Thompson series is cheesy and too predictable. But it is very easy to follow when you are not wanting to think about things. And Lorelai king makes up for lacking of writing skill. Perhaps if I was a teenager this would be more down my alley. Regardless of all this, for some reason I still keep listening to these audiobooks. Overall this is a good series.

    "Love Mercy and Adam's escapades! "

    I love this series! I happened apon the first book of the series by accident and haven't looked back since. I've listened to these books back to back and have ignored all of the other books I've bought. A really good series of books is hard to find do thank goodness I found Mercedes and Adam. 😆
