Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs (review)

Fair warning: Once I picked this book up, I didn’t put it down again until I’d finished it. So be prepared to spend an entire day doing nothing but reading! All the books in this series have been amazing, this one being no less so. Trolls, fae, fire magic, pack politics, a sentient faerie home, and Baba Yaga suck you in from the first pages. We get more of Mercy and Adam being cute, as well as appearances from old favorites like Bran, Zee and Tad. Besides the pack politics, we also get fae politics, bargains and exchanges. I liked… Read more »

Night Broken (Mercy Thompson #8) by Patricia Briggs (review)

I do love this series. And yes, the staff on the cover does mean the walking stick pops back up in this book. We also get more Coyote tricks, and a few anecdotes about pranks Mercy pulled on Bran growing up. There’s a lot of Mercy and the pack being manipulated by Adam’s ex-wife. And surprisingly enough, bonding time for Honey and Mercy. We also get to meet a half-brother of Mercy’s, and get introduced to another set of fantasy creatures. Ones that almost no one has heard of before. I liked how real the power games Christy was pulling… Read more »

Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson #7) by Patricia Briggs (review)

“We’re the good guys. That we’re scary doesn’t mean we’re the villains.”   This is one of my favorite Mercy Thompson books yet! I love the series in general, but this one just stood out more for some reason. I got about halfway through the book, and wondered what was going to happen next. Because at that point, most of the plot seemed like it was wrapped up with only a few things left to do. And then more twists happened. Ones that worked with what had happened already so far, and didn’t feel like they were just there to… Read more »

River Marked (Mercy Thompson #6) by Patricia Briggs (review)

I absolutely adored Coyote! I want him to make lots of more appearances in the books, and it sounds like he just might. The way he was written was perfect. He was mysterious and tricksey, but he also obviously cared for Mercy as one of his walkers. I also liked what happened with the walking stick at the end. The River Devil was nightmarish and if you have a fear of the water already, this might make it just that bit worse. But it was described so well, and was a fitting monster for the book. I’m still amazed Mercy… Read more »

Silver Borne (Mercy Thompson #5) by Patricia Briggs (review)

Silver Borne (Mercy Thompson #5) by Patricia Briggs (review)

No vampires at all in this book, everything centers around werewolves and the Fae. The major plot threads center around Sam; pack dynamics now that Mercy is part of the pack; and the Silver Borne storyline. There is a fight scene between pack members, and then between Adam and one pack member. There is also a scene where Sam eats someone ‘off camera’, and a few other little bloody things here and there. So if that kind of thing squicks you, you may not like this book. It wasn’t graphic however, and didn’t bother me at all. I felt like… Read more »

Bone Crossed (Mercy Thompson #4) by Patricia Briggs (review)

I loved that Stefan had a fairly large part in this book. He’s one of my favorite characters in the series. I didn’t like some of what happened to him, but at least some of it wasn’t permanent. I’m really almost hating Marsilia. I totally get why she did what she did, but I don’t like her. Mercy was raped in the last book, and she’s still working through her issues with that. And with the fact that she has finally done what we all knew she would be doing since book 1: Become Adam’s mate. She tried to push… Read more »

Moon Called (Mercy Thompson Book 1) by Patricia Briggs (review)

Moon Called (Mercy Thompson Book 1) by Patricia Briggs (review)

  Mercy might be a skinshifter, able to change into a coyote almost instantly, but she isn’t invincible. A lot of series I’ve gotten into have the main character end up as some kind of super-woman because of having to keep up with the vampires or shifters in her life. Not Mercy. She isn’t as strong as a werewolf, she’s only slightly faster than one as a coyote, and she knows it. I like the way the pack dynamics are explained in this world, and while Mercy is an outsider, she was raised in the pack of what amounts to… Read more »
