Mercy is one of the top urban fantasy heroines in my opinion and this book reminded just why (BOOK CHICK CITY)

I really enjoyed this book - in fact, it may be one of my favourites. I don't know what it was that made it stand out to me - Mercy having to be stand-in Alpha while Adam is missing? Finding out exactly how strong her and Adam's relationship is? Mercy getting more in touch with her coyote self? Or Ben?
Yes, Ben. I like Ben - gawd help me, but I do. There's something about Ben that always makes me think of Karl Marsten from Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series - and there is something likeable about Karl, just as there's something likeable about Ben. We get to see more of him come out as the series goes on.
I'll admit, I was getting a bit unimpressed with this series. Don't get me wrong, I still pre-ordered this but I haven't been looking forward to the last couple of books as I used to. I'm very impressed with this book and am glad it's rekindled my feelings for the series. I'm looking forward to the next one and can only hope that Briggs keeps the series on the up.
I suspect that a reader new to this series may struggle with the book, although the author does provide some quick reminders of past events - they will certainly miss a lot of the passing allusions will be such a delight to regular readers of Mercy Thompson books. I suggest that they start at Moon Called: Mercy Thompson book 1 and can almost guarantee that by the time that they reach this one they will be as immersed in this world as those of us who have been with the series longer.
Regular readers will notice that events in virtually all the past books are included, referred to, or provide a building block for the plot. The pack has disappeared when Mercy and Jesse are shopping and she has to find them, find out what has happened to them and why, and protect the pack members who have not been included in the event. Mercy herself comes under attack and she has to find allies quickly but is not sure who to trust.Read more ›
Frost Burned is neither better nor worse than Fair Game - both are as good as urban fantasy can get. From the first Mercy Thompson book (so far there are ten books in this universe), Patty has been getting better and better. In pacing, characterization and plot development, she has reached perfection. Big words, you say? Well, yeah, but so is this series.
After all that fear of her mate bond and of losing herself to the pack, it was nice to see Mercy so comfortable in her role as mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin Pack. She and Adam have such a beautiful, healthy relationship. In River Marked, Mercy was feeling more comfortable as part of the pack, but she was still adjusting and she still had her doubts. In Frost Burned, she is truly the Alpha's mate - she thinks as one, acts as one, and protects as one.
The addition of Adam's point of view was so very unexpected that I had to take a moment to think about it and decide whether I liked it or not.Read more ›
