If playing the Fae's deadly games wasn't enough, Samuel, Mercy's roommate and long time friend, is in trouble. He's an old wolf, living as a lone one in Adam's territory. Being close to Mercy was supposed to help him, but now the depression that's been plaguing him for months suddenly worsens. Mercy doesn't know how to help him, keep him safe from Adam, and deal with the Fae at the same time. But Mercy hasn't survived in a wolfs world without being stubborn and learning a thing or two about keeping herself alive.
I completely loved this book. The whole series is fantastic, but this book is quite possibly my favourite of the series so far. Mercy is still dealing with what happened to her at the end of Iron Kissed (book 3) and Adam is doing his best to help her with that. Their relationship has grown slowly, carefully and I love it. There is something very real about their relationship. I also really love Adam's teen aged daughter, Jesse. She's smart and sassy and we get to see more of her in this book, showing how much she's got in common with her dad. I love the easy friendship she and Mercy share and how Jesse deals with all the werewolves, being only human too.
We learn a fair bit more about pack bonds and mate bonds through this book, as well as pack structure.Read more ›
Like Sam. This was really his book. For a while now he's been on the edge and it was finally addressed in this one. For Sam fans, this will blow your mind. Through him we also learn a lot about what being a werewolf is like.
It also concentrated more on Adam and Mercy's growing relationship. It's been a lovely slow build but this book took it even deeper.
The "bad guy" is back to the fae. Always a thrilling pleasure. Mercy has something they want, but must not let them get. She not only has to keep it safe, but look out for her friends, and herself.
This is a good example of an excellent urban fantasy novel. One of the best I've read in a while and I'm so looking forward to the next one. Fans won't be disappointed and newcomers have some incentive to read the rest of the series first! You'll enjoy the series if you like Ilona Andrews, Kelley Armstrong, Kim Harrison etc.
This is book five in the Mercy Thompson series and in my opinion, the best one of the series so far. Deeply satisfying. This was just brilliant in every way from the first page to the last. There are simply no words to express how good this book was and how much I enjoyed it. It might sound a little bit like I'm gushing but you what, I am and I don't care. I went into this book looking forward to it sure, but I wasn't quite so happy with the ending of the last book and there were some things I just did not like in book three, so I was really hoping it was going to make me feel a whole lot better about Mercy, Adam, the pack, the future of the series.
Well it did that in spades. If you follow the series you will already know the background and the story so far, and this has been covered by the other reviewer, so I'll not waste your time by repeating it. If you are reading this review, not having read the previous four books in the series, and thinking it sounds great, well it IS great, but please stop reading any spoilery information and go read the other four books first. You will appreciate and enjoy this one so much more if you do!
In a lot of ways this is Samuel's book and I just loved the way the author handled that situation. It was just brilliant, scary, sad, worrying, funny, heart-breaking and ultimately rewarding. But of course it is Mercy's series and she does take centre stage and quite rightly, so it's also about the continuation of her relationship with Adam and the pack, relationships with her friends and with the fae.Read more ›
