Plenty of Twists and turns . . . Kept me entertained from its deceptively innocent beginning to its can't -put-it-down end (Kim Harrison, bestselling author of Dead Witch Walking)
Thompson is a sharp, strong heroine and her lycanthropic love triangle is honest and steamy. Briggs never shies from difficult material, and she moves effortlessly from werewolf pack psychology to human legal proceedings, making this a tense, nimble, cro (Publishers Weekly)

While this was a little bit of a let down after Iron Kissed, which would have been hard to top, there is still a lot to like about this installment of the series. Mercy has a lot to recover from since she was raped and she finds that she doesn't just get over it like often happens in fiction; no, she has panic attacks, she cowers, she has trouble even kissing Adam. Adam, of course, more than proved his worth with patience and understanding and I liked the way that their relationship developed.
These books wouldn't stand alone very well, but that isn't a criticism here. The events from previous books are still ongoing, while the book has its own plotline to keep the action going and provide new excitement. It's a little like plotting for a TV show; there is a bigger conflict and then there is the driving force behind each individual episode. Everything has repercussions, but the ghost storyline allows Mercy to develop and heal a little by herself.
I'm definitely still recommending this series and eagerly awaiting the fifth book!
I find both the world and the characters very engaging, my only criticism is that after reading them several times (as is my habit) Mercy becomes a bit of a goody goody.
I love the whole series, Iron kissed or Silver borne being my favorites but I couldn't say that any of them wasn't good.
In this book we get to see the more sensitive side of Mercy when she's trying to come to terms with the rape and to cope with her panic attacks. All the while she's trying to build a relationship with Adam and yet sometimes she can't bear him touch her. It really touched me some of the chapters when Mercy is hurting and trying so hard... And then there's Adam, ever so patient with her. I have to be honest I couldn't warm up to Adam in the beginning of the series and now I wouldn't have him any other way. I love Adam but i love Mercy even more, she's an amazing character and i could read hundreds of books about her!
