Loved it in high school! ( )

This book always strikes me as sort of a "time out" from the overall plot of the series. The plot is interesting, and Mercy is wonderful as always. Food as a theme caught my attention in this book. I have to do some research on it, but it seems to be a fairy tale trope, certainly food and the eating thereof is important from Greek Legend on down.

The definition of monstrosity is further blurred in this book. The Mercy series started out with werewolves as maybe monstrous and vampires as definitely monstrous and the fae as maybe monstrous. I have been pleased to see that become far more complex as the series progresses. ( )

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 ( )

Mercy has to take on the vamps while dealing with issues from previous books. But she is totally up to the challenge. I hope we get more details on the coven in future books. This was a tough one as lots of characters get tortured and the vamp Queen is so not nice! ( )

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.
