Another satisfying installment in the Mercy series although there was somewhat f the flavor f an in between book about it That s not really a criticism from me when you are in a series for the long haul it makes sense to take a breather and deal with all the events your characters have faced as well as integrate a feel f the everyday into their lives At the end f Iron Kissed there were at least two significant events that needed follow up and I would have been disappointed in Briggs as a writer and as a woman if she didn t allow her character recovery timeMercy s attempting to manage her panic attacks when she gets a surprise visit from her mom that unfortunately coincides with a drop in visit from Stefen hungry and emaciated The wolves help Stefen but it s the first sign that Marsilia the vampire ueen knows about what happened to Andre in Blood Bound Mercy s business and the wolves will become targets as well Strangely at the same time a frenemy from college shows up at Mercy s door looking for help dealing with a ghost harassing her son For the good f all Mercy decides to travel to Amber s home with Stefen shadowing her as support in case she runs into the infamous vampire BlackwoodThe first time I read this pacing felt very irregular to me But that s kind f a bonus as series tend towards predictable arcs Still there s some strange authorial choices Stefan Mercy s mom and Amber all showing up at the same time Peculiar and the sort f stuff that says hello red herring to the reader in an verly dramatic way The relationship progresses in generally positive ways Adam gives Mercy than enough space except late in the book when he panics I thought it a nice balancing act Dicmatized 2: Bitter Sweet Revenge of characterization as it avoids the perfect boyfriendimperfect girlfriend baloney and shows that Adam makes mistakes as wellOnce again except for surface conversations with frenemy Amber Mercy has no real female bonding moments Everyone and thing is male If it s female it is not a friend Seriously Briggs What s with the authorial choice there Reading these stories back to back makes it painfullybvious that there s some Martian Science Fiction: Scifi Novellas Set on Mars odd mental schism in the author s world I think it ended up contributing to me dropping the series because in between life threatening events it s mostly about Mercy s emotions surrounding her male relationships All that said Marsilia continues asne The Witches Ball of the most fascinating and complex characters even if she s prefer to see Mercy deadThree and a half stars rounding down because women Re read for the 3rd time April 12th 2020 Alreadynto the next Saving Charmaine: A Heaton Family Friends Series Book oneRe read March 24th 2017 Mercy manages to attract a lotf trouble and chaos I guess that might be part f her nature as a Coyote After the events f the last book Mercy suffers panic attacks and some hesitatancy even though she knows Adam would never hurt her but all that takes a back seat when Marsilia finds ut about Andre Trying to figure ut a way to keep the Pack safe and alive becomes her priority My thoughts Vampires are freaking scary The control they can have The Deadline overthers is frightening And most are completely ruthless However Mercy and her wolves shouldn t be underestimatedThere s an uneasiness with the Pack because f Mercy something that factors into future stories Love how Adam always has her back I really liked this book this series gets better and better actually The cast is filling ut nicely and although there were a few plot twists that were a little Ready to Restore: The Layman's Guide to Christian Counseling obscure whatever Nice emotional arc for the character I really enjoyed it hardback purchase justified If there isne reason why I love this series MERCY THOMPSON I want to be her best friend She s an amazing character brave strong humble feisty loyal and she s a mechanic with a fabulous carAnd then there s her relationship with wolf shape shifter Adam Hauptman He s a total alpha malepossessive arrogant brave but he doesn t take Ready to Restore over Mercy s lifehe respects

this series truly addictiveHer character development is incredible and some f the secondary characters have really engaging and endearingStefan Mercy s vampire friend Samuel Mercy s motherBones Crossed the 4th book in this series has an engrossing storyline that kept me captivated until the last page I can t wait to get f Mercy Thompson Re read Time I m slowly buy surely making my way through the series againSecond Read ReviewSo apparently I don t remember anything from this series I completely forgot who the bad guy was Shieldmaiden Book 1: Quest for the Jewel or anything about the vampire politics at playr the main plot Traficada: Diário de uma Escrava Sexual (Portuguese Edition) of the story Thenly thing I remembered at all was some superficial stuff about Adam and Mercy s relationship It s a little strange that I don t remember Encounter at Buff Ledge: A UFO Case History of this series it is almost like I never read them before Still the bad guy was bad ghosts are a little scary vampires suck Stephan iskay though Mercy needs to protect everyone Adam has a temper that we never ever see the Pack doesn t like Mercy being a part Carte touristique : Corse Sud : Ajaccio - Bonifacio of them and Mercy s milkshake brings all the boys to the yard even though she tells us all the time how un special she is Yep I think that a bout covers it I think I ll drop half a star to 35 stars There is a lotf repetition that doesn t really need to be in there and Mercy s need to protect Adam and the wolves is silly sometimes they are werewolves I m pretty sure they can protect themselvesOriginal Review One Regarde, c'est maman ! of theddest things about being grown up was looking back at something you thought you knew and finding The Bricklayer out the truthf it was

you ut f his sight for a minute It was nly supposed to be a ghost problem but it seems that the ghost that is haunting a little boy is than Mercy planned forI always like that the Mercy Thompson books are always than they seem There are a few layers to everything that is going n This ne in particular was interesting because there was the Vampire in Spokane that wants something from Mercy as well as Marsila and her political maneuverings that involve Stefan Marsila is crafty and vengeful to say the least The storyline was well thought ut and there were uite a few instances that I was worried for characters Other than that I like all the side things that are going n that may r may not come into play later There is the walking stick that seems to like Mercy and follows her around her cat that likes vampires werewolves and coyotes a book Showa, 1939-1944: A History of Japan on fae and Mercy s ability to find trouble around every cornerI was happy to seef Stefan he is ne f my favorite

part Native American coyote shapeshifterr walker and full time mechanic is still dealing with the emotional aftermath f events in Iron Kissed but at least she and the local werewolf Alpha Adam are n the right track now Unfortunately for them their relationship plans promptly get interrupted Marsilia the mistress The Jesuit of the local vampire clanr seethe I love that word has found With Bound Hands out that Mercy acted contrary to herrders in Blood Bound and is Rim of the Pit out now for Mercy s blood uite literally Marsilia has a setf crossed bones painted You Can Beat the Odds on Mercy s

Spokane home it seems like a heaven sent pportunity With all Stripes of All Types of Mercy s current issues with vampires it seems Mercy and Adam to be helpful that there snly ne vampire in the entire city f Spokane ne Jim Blackwood Surely Mercy won t come to Blackwood s notice But in reality it s ut Baltimore Catechism No. 2 of the frying pan and into the fire This fourth book in the MERCY THOMPSON series is my favoritene yet with tight intense plotting and an imaginative story line that deftly mixes together ghosts vampire conspiracies and power games and fae artifacts all playing role in the plot along with Mercy s developing relationship with the long suffering Adam Despite all Mic manual de campanie electorală of these competing elements the plot never gets confusing Patricia Briggs manages to blend these elements together in a way that notnly makes sense but is deeply satisfyingIt s a particular strength in this series that Mercy as well as The Big Book of Maker Skills: Tools Techniques for Building Great Tech Projects other characters don t get to simply dance through life without paying the fiddler Emotional and psychological problems aren t simply resolved within a week wrapped up with a neat bow and put away forever In factne major issue that I had with Iron Kissed that the ending too easily smoothed ver a weighty personal issue f Mercy s was resolved by the beginning One Life, One Incarnation: Beautiful Bones of Bone Crossed which casts that scene in a different light as the story continues from that same point Onef the reasons the MERCY THOMPSON series is so appealing to me is the way that Briggs pulls in plot threads from prior books in the series Time and again unforeseen conseuences and fallout from incidents in previous books in the series resurface as it becomes apparent that not Just Joking only are there some loose ends from the past but they re creating uite a tangle for Mercy and her friends Mercy is dealing with the second and thirdrder effects f her past actions which is fantastic writing as far as I m concerned Similarly characters and iconic items that the reader is already familiar with like a pa. Maintain a tenuous harmony between the human and the not so human This time she may get than she bargained forMarsilia the local Vampire ueen has learned that Mercy crossed her by slaying a member f her cl.
Rticular fae walking stick reemerge to affect Mercy s life in new ways For example her ability to see ghosts which was previously a key element in Blood Bound becomes relevant Times of Trouble (A Time Travel Anthology) once again as she attempts to help herld friend Amber with a worrisome haunt and then further develops into an integral part BENAAMI of Mercy sngoing story Either Briggs has plotted ut this series extremely carefully r she s particularly gifted at reexamining prior books plots and finding intriguing ways to carry incidents characters and themes forward In either case it all feels very rganic and natural helping to create an unusual feeling f realism in this urban fantasy worldAfter thinking about this some I m upping my rating from 4 stars to 5 This book and the series deserves it Patricia Briggs continues to impress me with her The Real Bluebeard: The Life of Gilles de Rais oh so expressive writing that conveys so much so economically I am truly in awef her talent Clearly I am very behind Stay on Your Toes, Maggie Adams! on this series It s not due to a lackf appeal but due to my reading style and my review reading taking up a lot f my reading time But I do love knowing that I have a guaranteed read when I reach for ne Night Train To Cherbourg: A Joszef Kiraly: Gentleman, Vampire Mystery of her booksMercy is definitely near the topf my list Disowned of fictional characters I think I would love to have as a friend in real life Probably numberne if I m honest And not just because she s an excellent and trustworthy mechanic and I need ne f those big time Mercy is a mix Marco Polo: A Photographer's Journey of real life traits humble down to earth courageous even in the facef fear which is the true definition The Cosmic Internet: Explanations from the Other Side of courage snarky empatheticbservant and very self deprecating While some readers don t like abuse storylines in their books I don t mind them when they are done well Mercy shows so much strength and fortitude Marketing Aesthetics of character Her journey to recovery after her attack in Iron Kissed is realistic and inspiring I truly love this womanBriggs writes the kindf fantasy that grabs hold f me and doesn t let go She plants a garden f what seems like rdinary wildflowers but exotic blooms that are far from rdinary grow in that garden waiting to be plucked by a reader Briggs mixes shapeshifters werewolves fae and vampires in an appealing way that doesn t leave Oddly Normal out the inherent menacef all the various supernatural creatures With a coyote shifter narrator the reader is fully along for the ride as Mercy is the first to admit that being a coyote shifter doesn t always give her the advantage but American Studio Ceramics: Innovation and Identity, 1940 to 1979 often puts her in a dangerous situation while she is immune to magic than most she s not impervious Oh and Briggs also throws in ghosts I must say that I was happy as a clam since I love fantasy like a housen fire but I also have an appreciation for ld schoolclassic horror and an ld fashioned ghost storyCan I take the time to gush Slaves of New York over the men in Mercy s life Adam Adam Adam How I love you He is perfect for Mercy And I like that Mercy is starting to see past her emotional wounds and barriers to see him for who he is her Mate Also I love that Adam is so patient and loving about it even though that is an actf hard won discipline He s very possessive but not in a controlling irritating way I love a possessive hero like a house Gou: Himetachi No Sengoku Vol. 1 on fire but I find controlling dominating men a turnoff Adam is just right for me I wish I had an Adam in real life He s very demonstrative that Mercy is his but he s not trying to dictate to her every step she takes He s a true life partnerIf there was no Adam in the Mercy Thompson world then I would definitely be allver Samuel I still love Samuel very much I just don t love him for Mercy s mate I love him all Johannes Itten: Das Frühwerk 1907-1919 on hiswn and I hope he gets the Mate he needs From Rodin to Plensa: Modern Sculpture at the Meadows Museum one day He s a really cool character Sweet as pie but also fullf danger that makes the hair stand up n ne s neck He seems serious but has this mischievous sense Dangerous Beauty of humor His calm facade hides a wild wolf that might never be tamedBran is the Manr rather the Alpha f the Alphas Marrok He steals a scene no matter who else is in it And that s saying something in this series I know Briggs has said she probably won t write a book with Bran as a main character I m sad and understanding f that He s such a mysterious and compelling figure when he shows up it s so satisfying but also tantalizing I can t love him I m always hungry for Atlantis in America of himStefan has actually grownn me uite a bit While I have become uite a vampire romance fan I still prefer shiftersweres to vampires and I like that they take center place in this series But Stefan adds such a nice touch to this series While he insists n telling Mercy that he is a very bad man his actions say therwise I haven t decided who would play my Stefan but it would have to be an actor with lots Flatfoot Fox and the Case of the Bashful Beaver of presence I liked how Briggs develops Mercy s friendship with Stefan much in this book it was assumed at the beginning I have to say the vampire storyline makes my heart beat fast and gives me shivers They are truly menacing creaturesThe thing with Briggs is that no character is a throwaway Eachne is carefully developed even for their short presence in this book You feel everything even in a short scene that you should feel And while the characters might throw you for a loop at first their motivations are apparent as the layers peel awayI think that for the short length f this book it s really a full meal Urban fantasy for the true lover f the genre Also I think a good gateway to those who are investigating this genre for the first time Mercy by herself is enough to keep a reader hooked But the secondary characters the plotting and storyline will have the reader staying for seconds and dessertHighly recommended Great PNR series If you loved the Fever series and the Kate Daniels series you ll love Mercy Thompson and Adamyum This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life in BooksI enjoyed this book even during this re read This is. An and she's ut for blood But since Mercy is protected from direct reprisal by the werewolf pack and her close relationship with its sexy Alpha it won't be Mercy's blood Marsilia is afterIt'll be her friend.
