It's been a while since my last re-read/listen through the Mercy Thompson books. I had forgotten just host much things had been changing on a larger world building scale in the last few books: since Mercy put herself and her pack on the line defending the people and territory of the Columbia Basin, things have gotten complicated. And dark. And did I mention complicated?

It's fascinating world building.

I think my favorite thing about the series remains the fact that the Fae have been out for decades and the werewolves for years now. There are still a few oddities/things that haven't seemed to change as much I think they would. But it's great to read about. And here, with all three groups coming to the table for actual negotiations and politics? Fascinating.

I also love hearing more about goblins and witches. Especially after seeing so many of the witch plotlines from the Alpha & Omega point of view, seeing Mercy's different background with witches (Elizaveta!) and take on their powers is wonderful. It's fascinating seeings how big of players witches are becoming in both universes despite only very rarely being core characters / never points of view.

Also... so much more Wulfe. I... have no idea what to think about him. As with many of the very old in the Mercy Thompson universe, he actually does feel just off enough to actually be his age. And it makes me want to know so much more...


"A lot of what I know about the witches comes from Wikipedia; it told me that coven had thirteen witches."

"I get the best spells from Wiki," Wulfe said. "Have you read what it says about werewolves? I keep editing the article, but someone - and I think it's Bran Cornick - keeps changing it back."


Oh Wulfe. ( )

I love the Mercy Thompson series, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the latest release.

Briggs delivers yet again another amazing story in the Mercy Thompson series. She brought an action-packed tale with hate groups, black witches, friends to enemies, lose, and more.

Mercy is facing the consequences of making the Tri-Cities a safe haven. She's also stuck having to act as liaison between the humans and fae while Adam and The Pack play bodyguards to the humans. She will have to mange many things and make some difficult choices.

We are treated to some new and old characters with The Pack and all our favorite characters come to life in Storm Cursed. We learn more about Sherwood Post. Zee is present as is Uncle Mike and the Goblin King. Even Wulfe pops in.

As always Briggs captured me. The plot is well written and action-packed. I love that we are so far into the series and it’s still going strong with each book feeling fresh. It’s a well crafted story and the author made me cringe, laugh out loud, cry, and gasp.

The Mercy Thompson series continues to grow and get better with each book. Mercy is becoming stronger, The Pack is evolving, and the world continues to build. I can’t wait for the next installment.

Rated: 4 Stars

Narration: Lorelei King is a fabulous narrator. I love listening to her and she does a fabulous job with the Mercy Thompson series.

I have been a fan of the Mercy Thompson series from the very beginning, with MOON CALLED, and always look forward to a new entry into the series. I appreciated the change up last time around when the action took place in Europe, but it was enjoyable to get back to the home front in this latest entry.

This time around the plot focuses on the witch who the Pack uses, Elizaveta Arkadyevna Vyshnevetskaya (and that's a mouthful)! When her entire family is slain while she is out of the country, Elizaveta relies on Mercy and her pack connections to figure out who is using black magic for nefarious means in the area. The action in this installment excludes a number of the usual crew, but we readers don't mind, so long as they show back up in the next title in the series!

STORM CURSED has some descriptions of torture that were hard to read (and I skimmed); and though I know this has been present in other books in the series, it was a bit over the top for me, with human and animal torture included. That is why I have withheld one start, as a 5 star read is one I can recommend with NO reservation.

I'm thrilled that STORM CURSED made the LibraryReads list, and apologize that I couldn't get this one read before publication. This series always circulates well here, and I buy multiple copies when they are released. Thanks for the opportunity to read a digital galley! Always appreciated. ( )

*Trigger warning - animal abuse.

I stopped reading this book some time last year, but didn't remember why. When I saw the next book in the series was coming out, I though, "ooh, I need to catch up before starting Smoke Bitten (which came out in March, 2020). I got the book out again and settled back into the Urban Fantasy world of coyote walker/mechanic Mercy Thompson, and all the characters I've gotten to know over the years I've been reading the series.

Not too far into the book, I remembered why I stopped. There is a very graphic scene of animal abuse (puppies and kittens) which is done by some evil/bad witches to increase their powers.

Authors: if you decide to add animal torture to a book in a series, you are going to risk losing new fans and alienating old ones. I realize that it must be hard to come up with new plot points and conflict/tensions in a long-running series. But this is not the way to do it.

I skimmed that part of the book, and will say that, for the most part I enjoyed the rest of it. I have read this series since the first book came out, and if you are an Urban Fantasy fan, you will love it. As a librarian, I have recommended it to men and women both at the library, and never heard a negative comment about it.

In this latest book, Mercy and her pack discover that someone has been raising zombie animals, and proceed to investigate this unusual state of affairs. Which is when we get to the evil bad witches and their black magic with baby animals. After moving on from that part of the book, it proceeds fairly smoothly in the same manner of the rest in the series. Great dialogue, action scenes, and family dynamics among the pack.

I have the next book in the series, and do look forward to reading it. I don't give up on an author or series just because I'm disappointed with both, one or two times in 10 years. But, as I said, this is not the best way to add something new and different and shocking to a story. ( )
