I got this book for review and I also got a signed copy from my friends who went to her signing in VA. I was really excited for a new Mercy Thompson book and this one certainly didn't disappoint. Ms. Briggs sort of went in a different direction and I think this book had a new flavor. I enjoyed it.

Ms. Briggs introduces some Native American lore into this story which I absolutely loved because I felt like we hadn't seen that complete side of Mercy yet. I loved how expertly she wove the story together to go with the faerie lore she usually has here and there and the Native American.

I feel like in this book we get to see a complete picture of Mercy. We get to peek behind her strong veneer to the actual person in the character and I love getting to know more about my favorite characters. I also love Coyote in this book. He is perfectly tricky, makes me think of Loki with a tiny bit more softness, which is to be expected given their relationship but he certainly isn't easy on Mercy.

I can't wait to see what the future has in store for Mercy and Adam. Hopefully no more camping trips. ( )

This story picks up where the last one left off. Adam and Mercy are engaged and their wedding is imminent. I liked this story because it brought a bit of Mercy's past into the mix. There were a couple of parts that didn't seem to go too smoothly. The first is at the beginning. Mercy goes to check on Stefan, but the whole scenes feel out of place and ultimately don't do anything to add to this books story. Maybe it was added for the next book, I don't know. There other part had to do with her seeing a ghost. Although that isn't anything new, the ghost should've been a little bit more of a dramatic event for Mercy, but she was rather "meh" about it. I just don't know that her reaction fit in well. Otherwise, I liked it and will continue with the series as a whole. ( )

Someday, I'm going to meet some supernatural creature who tells me everything I should know up front and in a forthright manner—but I'm not going to hold my breath.

Since most of this book involved Mercy and Adam on their honeymoon I could not get enough of it. Not in a pervy way (get your mind out of the gutter!), I just love seeing them interact with each other. I am so happy that they are finally married.

Instead of focusing on the fae, vampires, or werewolves this book really focuses on Mercy's background and ancestors. I loved getting to read the Native American folklore and finally getting more of an understanding of where Mercy truly came from. I liked that not only did Mercy learn about her heritage but it also helped her when she and the humans of the area were in danger. I especially loved Coyote and hope to see more of him later on in the series. I am really looking forward to continuing on with my Mercy marathon and reading the next book in the series. ( )

3.5 with a bit extra because even after succumbing to writing an offshoot series & being on book 6, Briggs managed to keep me glued to this book. That's pretty incredible as I'm usually bored by this time in a series. This is one of the few PNR series that actually has details that stick in my mind. Most just sort of swirl together into a vague, cotton candy haze. Not Briggs. Her prose isn't exactly memorable, but her characters are. I'll definitely buy the next one new. ( )

Mercy, I love you, but this shit is just too boring for me. There's, like, a river and some otters and DNF. For the record, I attempted to read this twice. 30% the first time and 47% this time around. Womp womp on both counts. ( )
