Another great Mercy Thompson book. This one had more emphasis on the relationship between Mercy and Adam. It also dealt with the pack dynamics which have been wonky with the whole Mercy is not a werewolf thing. There was also a conflict with a fae but it was not a major problem and the resolution played into the whole pack thing. I loved Samuel's story until the end. I was disappointed that he didn't get more of a story for himself like Charles did in Cry Wolf. Still a good fast satisfying read. ( )

Wow, I love all her books, PB is just such a fantastic storyteller, but this one especially rocked. I love how deeply it got into pack dynamics and werewolf stuff. ( )

Patricia Briggs is an author I enjoy reading and the Mercy Thompson series is my favorite series by her. I love that she books have so much to them, intrigue, mystery, romance, paranormal and so much more. I find myself invested in both the story and the characters. These books feel both new and fresh but also comfortable to read like a favorite sweatshirt. I highly recommend anything by Patricia Briggs. ( )

I really like this series with Mercy and Adam. Interesting main characters and well fleshed out side characters. Usually when I pick up a book in this series I can't put it down. The book has the right amount of plot, characters and actions and moves along at a good pace. ( )

Book description
When mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book she'd previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down.

It seems the book contains secret knowledge-and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands. And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side-leaving Mercy to cover for him, lest his own father declare Sam's life forfeit.

All in all, Mercy has had better days. And if she isn't careful, she might not have many more to live...
