Review: Storm Cursed (Mercy Thompson #11) by Patricia Briggs



In this new instalment in the No. 1 New York Times bestselling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves . . .

My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.

And a coyote shapeshifter . . . And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.

Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn’t stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae.

The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death.

But we are pack, and we have given our word. We will die to keep it.

It seemed like forever since the last Mercy book was released, so this was so needed.

I totally missed Mercy, Adam and the rest of the gang and go be honest I will be super sad once this series ends.

This like most her books start off with a bang and throws you right into action with Mercy and Co. I really enjoyed the new dynamic between her and the pack now that Adam finally put his foot down.  Though some members, make it clear the only reason they are “nice” to her is because of that. But you can also tell others really like her. I love how she handles it, like everything with a lot of humor.

One theme in this book was politics. Politics between the humans and all supernatural, some if it was important but some parts seemed to be dragged out a bit, especially when there were more pressing issues happening, like the witches and other things. There were quite a few things happening in this book and we get a few different things, from goblins to zombies and witches, and of course the pack and Mercy are right in the middle of everything.

We meet some new faces, but of course we also run into our friends, Zee and Tad, our allies and some no friends Vampires and the witches come out to play. Of course the Fay do as well in their own way of course.

We get a lot of Sherwood this book and learn a lot more about him and his past, we almost see him more than Adam, it felt like at times.  One thing I wanted more besides Adam, was a Mercy teamed up with Mary-Jo. I really hope we get more of that in to the future, I enjoyed that way too much.

Adam like I said we see but not as much as I would have liked, he was busy, a lot with the humans and the politics between humans and non-humans.

Overall this book was not my favorite with all the politics, it was slowed down a bit, or at least for me. But that being said I still really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to see what is in store next for Mercy and Co.

I rate it 4★
