An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from her new boyfriend. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.AGHHHHH return of the Mercy! You may or may not be aware, but we have a long history with the Mercy Thompson series, fraught with issues and rage aplenty. After River Marked, we had more or less given up on the series, but then, but then, dear readers, we read the summary for Night Broken. And we knew, we knew, that the time had come to take up the sword again, because how could anyone resist an entire book about bitches?
Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.
Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s ex is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.
Not us, dear readers, not us.
We decided to pull our good friend Shiori in for that action – who you also may or may not remember – for many reasons, mostly involving retribution, and rather than try to coordinate our rage into a three-person article – seriously, have you ever tried that with three people? It’s hard – we decided to hook up on Skype and voice our concerns in podcast form. We hope you don’t think too badly of us for that.
We also hope you’ll join us, as we discuss the horror show that is Night Broken by Patricia Briggs. We laugh to hide the despair.
