An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from her new boyfriend. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.
Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.
Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s ex is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.
It’s been a couple months since I read the last Mercy Thompson book , but I got to say it was easy to fall right back into her world of werewolves, fae, vampires and so much more this time around.
So much is going on in this book and of course Mercy and Adam are in the middle of everything. Tough we don’t get as much of Adam as in some of the prior books. But that was okay it for with the storyline.
We have Christy, Adam’s ex-wife in this book and let me tell you, she is a piece of work. I really don’t care for her and think Mercy should have just handed her over but I guess Mercy is a better person.
It was interesting to see Mercy deal with Christy living in their house and the pack and I have to give it to Mercy she handled it better than some people would have. At some points I thought Adam could have done more to keep Christy in line but I guess he knew Mercy can handle her.
We also meet Coyote and Gary again. I’m still on the fence with Coyote, not sure what to think of him yet, but so far I really don’t trust him.
Gary, I really like Gary and hope we get to see more of him in future books and hope he becomes one of the main characters around Mercy in future books.
Let’s not forget Stefan, while he is not much in the book, some things come up that are pretty major about him and Mercy and there for the pack. I know a lot of reader like Stefan but I hate to say it, but I really am not a fan of him. I think he is okay but I could live without him or any of the vampires in this world.
Speaking about the pack, I really wish some of the pack members would get their head out of their…… and get over it and accept Mercy fully. Except for Honey, wow she made a full 180 in my book and is becoming really great.
Tad, OMG that was awesome and kind of unexpected. Kind of because I really always thought he has more magic than he lets on.
This book was a rollercoaster, up and downs, twists and turns everywhere and like I said a lot of things are happening. We also learn that there are more supernatural beings out there than we thought.
The last quarter of the book had me worried for some major characters.
I really liked Adam’s speech before the final battle it was really heartwarming and heartbreaking all at once.
Overall it was a great book and I can’t wait to see what happens next to Mercy, Adam, the pack and all others.
I rate this book at 4★ while I thought it was great there were a few books in the series that were better.
