Yep, it was that good. I took it to work with me and ended up reading the ending stuck in traffic on the way home. Patricia Briggs is a highly skilled wordsmith and her writing will keep you turning those pages till the end. A lot of authors by the time they get to the fifth book in a series have given up on the casual reader and write for their fans but Briggs is far better than that. The story grips you from the word go and plunges you straight into Mercy's world but all the way through she feeds the reader little titbits designed to fill you in with just enough back story to make sense to the casual reader and hopefully tempt them to go back to the start of the series. The vampires are missing from this book although they do get mentioned. This story is about the fae and the wolves, in particular the problems of Samuel, and both threads are beautifully interwoven. This is a book for readers of both sexes and the requirements of both are artfully met. There is just the right balance of relationship material to excitement and thankfully no lurid sex scenes. The violence is tempered and appropriate, the fae well researched and the characters believable. Like the previous reviewer; who's synopsis was so good that I didn't need to repeat it, I can't wait for the next one.
