I need help and I'm hoping fellow fans of the Mercy Thompson series will provide.
I am so confused regarding the "dislike" between Mercy and Honey. I recall in the beginning of the series that there was a mutual disdain between the two, but I also recall that the disdain turned into a tentative relationship, almost friendship as the series progressed.
In Frost Burned, the dislike between Mercy and Honey is back in full force. So much so, that it's confusing because it seems that this dislike is back to square one without any of the growth that occurred. Could it have anything to do with the dominance fight between Mary Jo and Paul?That Honey is a bit angry that her position as a submissive in the pack (due to her mate) is threatened now that women are involved in dominance fights now?
If the above is correct, then I can understand Honey's dislike of Mercy. But, Briggs writes book 7 as if there was never any forward movement with their relationship.
The fact of the matter is this: I love the Mercy Thompson series, and book 7 was amazing. But Mercy started to grate on my nerves with the "she doesn't like me" and "Mary Jo and Honey can live together because they both hate me" chant that is constant throughout the last part of the book.
Please provide perspective if you can. I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
