I like this series a lot. This book was particularly good. The plot was stellar and there were some fresh characyers and we got to know more about Stefan which I like. This series reminds me of the Laurell Hamilton books about Anita Blake without all the gratuitous and kinky sex, and without lengthy discussions of clothes, interior design and weaponry. Also this has fewer vampires which is a plus. ( )

Love it, love it. Only sad that now I have to wait for another Patricia Briggs novel. I'm not a fan of the vampire genre, in spite of having recently glommed the entire Stephanie Meyer series. But I am a fan of Pat Briggs writing and strong characters, and boy does Mercedes Thompson stand out as one of the most interesting, well-developed, strong female characters ever created. This series is only remotely like the Anita Blake ones - the characters are more fully developed, links between the "species" complex but fascinating to untangle, and the ongoing storylines from book 1 to 4 are still well maintained and each has its twists. I can't wait to see what Patricia comes up with next. ( )

I was a bit disappointed with this book. After the amazing and awe-inspiring third book in this series, I expected this one to be a home run, or well, a grand slam - if I am using baseball analogies. It seemed like the whole climax of the story was rushed through, I would have loved to have a better description of what went on when Adam and Mercy finished bonding, and also more about the mysteries stick that keeps following Mercy around, although it finally comes in handy in this book. I did like that we learned a bit more about Mercy's powers, and met some new and different characters. I am also still completely in shock and awe of what the mistress did the poor abused Stephan, that was just messed up. This book is a good read to hopefully bridge for a better book in the 5th installment of this series.We shall se ( )

Book description
There was I thinking being a shifter had its upsides. Looks like I was wrong.

Car mechanic and sometime shapeshifter Mercy Thompson has learned - the hard way - why her race was almost exterminated. When European vampires emigrated to North America, they found Mercy's people had a hidden talent for vampire slaying. Unfortunately for Mercy, the queen of the local vampire seethe has discovered her true identity.

The undead queen is also furious when she learns Mercy has crossed her and killed one of her own. Mercy may be protected from direct reprisals by the werewolf pack (and her interesting relationship with its Alpha), but that just means Marsilia will come after Mercy some other way. So Mercy had better prepare to watch her back.
