Frost Burned feels almost like two novels sort of smooshed together. In starts out with something of a bang with the entire pack getting kidnapped by people apparently mad enough to take on an entire pack of werewolves at once. By the second half though, that's shifted into a little bit of Fae and a lotta bit of vampire trouble which--don't get me wrong--is related, but feels like a different sort of book.

It actually works surprisingly well though.

There have always been aspects of all of the different parts of the world that Briggs is building in her books, but this is really the first example of something that really pulls everything together. You have the werewolves of course, plus a touch of the Fae in Zee and Tad and a pair of assassins, plus a bit more digging into the politics of the vampires. Oh, and just a little bit of Coyote to remind you how strange River Marked was. Add to how the mortal world is dealing with all the things that go bump in the night and you actually get a pretty solid read.

Characterwise, not terribly much changes for most of the characters. We get to learn a bit more about Zee's son Tad, Marsilia gets a more 'human' side, and everyone else reinforces who they are. There's a scene with mercy Mercy that's cruel given what she's been through, but it's really starting to look like she's be all right--Adam and the pack helps with that. Plus, as she mentions towards the end, at least this time she didn't end up in a wheelchair.

One really weird thing if you've only read the Mercy Thompson books is that the Fae have apparently all pulled a vanishing act. It sort of comes out of nowhere and I remember being confused the first time I read this series. It makes a lot more sense if you read Briggs' other series set in the same universe: Alpha and Omega. Also you get a lot more about Charles, which is pretty cool.

Another awesome book in the Mercy Thompson series. I look toward to the next one. ( )

Almost like two shorter books jammed together, but in a good way. ( )

4 1/2 stars...

Doesn't matter what Mercy does or whom she has at her back to keep her out of trouble....she ends up in the middle of it.

This time Mercy and Jesse are out at the Black Friday sales when Adam and the pack are kidnapped. And when I say the pack I mean the whole pack.

It seems that someone has hired rogue military agents for Cantrip, an anti-everything group, who kidnap and drug the pack. The goal is to get Adam to kill some senator or else they start killing the pack.

Or so that is what we are lead to believe is the plot here. With a lot of twists and sudden turns the mercenaries turn against the guys who hired them. One of them gives Adam unofficial information about what is going on and who they know are the key players in the plot.

Mercy in the meantime has hidden Jesse and Gabriel until they can figure out just what the heck is going on. The mate/pack bond is hinkey seeing that the wolves have been tranquilized with that combination that Gerry Wallace developed a few books back. They are more in danger from the silver than the men shooting them.

We get to meet another Alpha wolf....Aisil otherwise known as The Moor. Guess he's one crazy and vicious son of a gun. He's been sent by Bran since there is a lot going on and no one knows just whom they can trust.

One liners are great. Mercy once again finds herself the center of the wrong kind of attention. Marisila is looking for Mercy, not to kill her this time but because she needs her ghost seeing skill. Stefan is on the scene along with a mystery Vamp from San Francisco. Hmmm...something is a foot in the neighborhood.

Seems that the wolves were just a diversion for Gauntlet Boy, a vamp we met when Stefan left the seethe, who is trying to get rid of Marisila and take over the world. His big plan is to bring the vamps out into the open, evilness and all, and eventually take over the world. Right, like they are going to let that happen.

Interesting twists and turns. Battle wasn't as epic as it could have been but still we learned a few interesting things. Oh and we get insight is to just how strong the bond between Mercy/Adam and the pack is. Who knew you could do that....trust me, it's impressive.

Off to the next one to see what's in store for our girl and her wolf. ( )

Somehow my review and rating is gone, so my review won't be as detailed as before.

I do remember liking this book, hence my 5 star rating. It was quite a roller coaster and showed the strong bond between Adam and Mercy. I would say it's probably the best book in the series so far.

I would recommend this book series to anybody, with telling to start reading at book 1, since it shows the buildup of Mercy and how we got to this point. I would tell them to read the other series in this world, Alpha and Omega, since this book includes some stuff that happened in their book series. ( )
