Book Description

In this #1 New York Times bestseller, author Patricia Briggs “has reached perfection” (The Nocturnal Library), as Mercy Thompson faces a shapeshifter’s biggest fear...



After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and her stepdaughter, Jesse, can’t reach Alpha werewolf Adam—or anyone else in the pack, for that matter. They’ve all been abducted.



Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. But she fears Adam’s disappearance may be related to the political battle the werewolves have been fighting to gain acceptance from the public—and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outmatched and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you could want! March 5, 2013
Format:Hardcover
I loved this book. It is action packed, filled with intense emotion and some traumatic scenes. Mercy has gained so much through out the series that the threat of losing the people she loves is always hanging over her head. And, since Ms. Briggs is such an amazing writer, it is also hanging over our heads. My biggest issue with "River Marked," was the absence of my favorite cast of supporting characters. Mercy and Adam were on their honeymoon and so there was no four-letter word Ben, no fierce Kyle, and barely a glimpse of the crotchety Fae mechanic, Zee. I'm happy to say the cast is back and Mercy Thompson is as entertaining as she's ever been.

This book reminds me of earlier installments, but it isn't repetitive in anyway. "Frost Burned" somehow manages to be a whole new world, while sticking to the formula that makes us rush to the bookstore on release day. It has that same sort of dread I felt before I knew how capable and powerful Mercy and team could be. Mercy has proven time and again that she is a survivor. A lucky coyote. The thing about being lucky is that luck runs out. No matter how capable, no matter how fast or how strong, bad things will happen to you. Bad things definitely happen to the pack in book seven.

Mercy can't find Adam or any members of the pack. Phones are off and the only reason she knows Adam is alive is due to the pain she feels through their mate bond. Mercy Thompson is not the kind of gal who sits in a corner and cries when things go wrong, so she springs into action. Being as careful as Mercy can be, she goes on a mission to find her husband and her pack mates. Bran and Samuel are unreachable and all the fae have hidden away in the fairy mounds, which means Mercy is basically on her own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Addition to the Series March 6, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ever since I found Moon Called in a bookstore a few years ago and bought it on a whim, Patricia Briggs has been one of my favorite authors. In fact, every time a new Mercy or Alpha/Omega book is released, I like to reread all the previous books again. For me, they stand up to the multiple rereads; I am just as captivated the third or fourth time through as I was upon the first reading.

One of my favorite things about this series is how it blends the supernatural with more mundane concerns. Mercy is still figuring out her mate bond with Adam, and she also worries about being a good stepmother to Jesse. Mercy can shapeshift into a coyote, but she gets tangled up in her clothes. She sees ghosts, but she's also still dealing with the aftermath of previous events on a psychological level. It's that grounding in a reality that the reader can relate to which makes the supernatural elements that much more believable.

The book takes place back in Mercy and Adam's hometown, so the full cast of characters is back after their absence in River Marked. Ms. Briggs does a good job of rounding out even the less important characters, and it is fun to get little snippets of the characters' past, especially Zee. He's always been intriguing to me, so I love those tiny clues to his past. Tad actually gets to be a part of this book rather than a passing mention, and Stefan the Scooby Doo-loving vampire is back too. During the course of the action (and there is a lot of action), references are made to events from previous books--some of them are explained pretty well if your memory is fuzzy, but others are just a quick passing mention.

4.0 out of 5 stars Return to the "old feel" of the series March 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
After the big ending of Fair Game, I really expected this book to focus on the aftermath of that one. It doesn't. Of course, the decision by the Fae to pull away from human society is incorporated into the story, but it is by no means, part of the main plot.

The big driver of the book: someone has kidnapped Adam and almost all of his pack. Only by a twist of luck were Mercy and Jesse away from home during the abduction. She must find a way to keep Jesse safe and pool her resources to try to rescue her husband. It's not easy. The bad guys are after her too. And she has to reach outside her comfort zone to trust those she needs as allies. But in typical Mercy fashion, when the chips fall, she manages to do what needs to be done.

I enjoyed this book far more than I did the last Mercy installment. It recaptured the feel of the older books in a lot of ways. We're back on Mercy's home turf. Her allies are with her. I had missed Ben and Stefan. They are two of my favorite supporting characters in the series. It wasn't only them, but Zee, Tad, Gabriel, Tony, Kyle, and the pack too. I also like that even with Mercy and Adam's wedding, it doesn't make all the pack members forget how they feel about her. Those who didn't like her before, still don't like her now. It's not all sunshine and roses.

Mercy and Adam are apart for much of the book, but Patty Briggs does a great job showing how strong their relationship is. How they draw strength from one another. Plus, as an added treat, we get to spend some time in Adam's head, getting some passages from his POV. Very cool.

It's awesome how Briggs ties in the events of the previous stories, keeping the continuity among the books.

I haven't even bought Fair Game because of the price. I haven't been loving the last of the Mercy Thompson books (which breaks my heart) so I won't pay inflated priced for something I might not love.

Too pricey.
The paper copy will come out under the price of the digital one. What is the cost for producing paper vs digital? To top that I can not even give it to my friend after I read it even if we live in the same house(to share books you have to have the same account). If digital books cost half the... Read More

A 60% raise?
The market? The market seems to be treating Patricia Briggs just fine, hence the move to hardcover. Tell me, did you just not buy books when you couldn't get them for .99?
