Mercy Thompson Series, Book 7
Note: This is the seventh book in the series. Obviously there are some spoiler alerts if you're not caught up yet. (But if you're like me, you'll keep reading because a description plus review usually pushes you to read the series faster --or you just don't like surprises.)
Description (taken from Goodreads):
Mercy Thompson’s life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman—the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack—has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy’s life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more
After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can’t reach Adam—or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They’ve all been abducted.
Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related—and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.
Patricia Briggs has made a comeback with this novel for me. With the last book, I was kind of left unimpressed and felt the series might begin to lag for me. But this book has turned me around. Because of this series, I can truly say I like werewolves (best viewed from afar).
As the description states, Mercy can't get ahold of Adam and his pack. This book lets us see what happens when the werewolves become the prey. And it's a mystery that Mercy must work to solve quickly if she hopes to save those she holds dear. In fact, it's the kind of mystery that I didn't figure out all the way on my own. I was too busy enjoying the story of course.
Fans of adult paranormal stories need to give this series a try. I've officially thrown my shoes at urban fantasy lovers who haven't read this series yet...
