...is the fourth installation in the Mercedes Thompson series. This book picks up right where the previous book, Iron Kissed, left off. "Mercy" the shape-shifting coyote is still coping with the tragic events that were the climax of the previous book. Mercy is not only dealing with emotional issues, she is also learning how to balance her life as the mate of the Alpha of the local werewolf pack, Adam Hauptman and her increasingly uncomfortable interactions with the local vampire queen, Marsilia. Briggs takes the reader on a fast-paced ride as Mercy is approached by an old-friend and asked to fend-off a ghost that has taken up residence in her home. Mercy leaves the comfort and protection of her new werewolf family and heads to Spokane, Wash., where she meets an unexpected and scary situation.
Although Patricia Briggs' novels aren't skillfully written they are interesting and filled with fun. The interaction with the vampires is always edge of your seat fantastic and Mercy has a wit that is enjoyed by most readers of this series. If you enjoy a book that is easy to read and slim on characterization then the Mercedes Thompson series might be your new good read.
