This book is the third in the Mercedes Thompson series, I also think it is the best so far. I was riveted to this book after the first few chapters, the others were good, but this one was absolutely amazing. The first two books had the Laurell K. Hamilton feel, as I said before; Briggs completely separated herself from Hamilton with this book. I love the throw back Briggs did with some of the real old fairy tales, as well as making her heroine real, we know Mercy isn't a human, but neither is she invincible. I liken her to another my favorite characters, Sookie Stackhouse. I also LOVE that Mercy finally chooses between Adam and Sam...that was just getting to be ridiculou ( )

While I like Sam I am totally routing for Adam!! This was a great book super well written and great pace. The ending is a bit rough especially if you have issues with drugging and forced intimacy. It is very well written but could be touchy subject matter for some. ( )

Although I loved the first two books in the Mercy Thompson series, I found it really difficult to get into this one. I was also surprised by a terrible event in the book and didn't realise it happened until a character mentioned it afterwards and had to go back and re-read it. I didn't mind that this story was darker than the others just that it didn't showcase the author's usual way of writing which sucks you in and keeps you there. ( )

I had completely forgotten what a cliff hanger the end of this book was.

As expected, this book primarily expanded the Fairy Tale and Rape themes I am tracking through Urban Fantasy. I adore Mercy. ( )

I like the mythology she's made up, it's pretty awesome. The ending faltered a lot, or I'd have given a better rating.

I'm hopeful that the next book will be better. ( )

Book description
It wasn't hard to follow the scent of blood to the living room where the fae had been killed. It had been a violent death, perfect for creating ghosts.

Mercy Thompson enjoys being a mechanic, but life is never simple given her increasing closeness to the local werewolf pack, and her ability to change into coyote form at will. And when a member of the fae comunity calls in a favour, needing her skills for a covert murder investigation, she jumps into the hunt.

But the dangers multiply and she clashes with shadowed creatures of great power. When her old boss Zee is charged with a brutal assassination, Mercy finds herself fighting alone. There are those who love her, who would keep her safe, but she is wary and holds her freedom precious. Until, that is, she has nothing left to lose but her life...
