Mercy Thompson, car mechanic and shapeshifter, faces a threat unlike any other in this thrilling entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series. I am Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman. My only "superpowers" are that I turn into a thirty-five pound coyote and fix Volkswagens. But I have friends in odd places and a pack of werewolves at my back. It looks like I'm going to need them. Centuries ago, the fae dwelt in Underhill--until she locked her doors against them. They left behind their great castles and troves of magical artifacts. They abandoned their prisoners and their pets. Without the fae to mind them, those creatures who remained behind roamed freely through Underhill wreaking havoc. Only the deadliest survived. Now one of those prisoners has escaped. It can look like anyone, any creature it chooses. But if it bites you, it controls you. It lives for chaos and destruction. It can make you do anything--even kill the person you love the most. Now it is here, in the Tri-Cities. In my territory. It won't, can't, remain. Not if I have anything to say about it.… (més)

The first few books in the series are probably still the best in my opinion, but I have been very happy with how the series is progressing. Briggs has found a way to take on higher stakes without making Mercy over-powered or changing characterization. I like that she's learning to use what she is in different ways and holding her own in such a crazy world. ( )

So glad to enjoy another Mercy Thompson Adventure. Liked the unexpected twist and the manifestation of unexpected folk tales; liked the continuing evolution of the pack family life. Great stuff! ( )

I have been looking forward to this book forever and it didn’t disappoint. Mercy and Adam’s marriage is in a rough spot after the events of the previous book. And there is no clear explanation why. Pack politics come into play (with some GREAT scenes) and of course everyone’s favorite nemesis… Christy. Mwah ha ha. But of course there’s more going on in the tri cities area. Murders are being committed and there’s the scent of magic at the crime scene. But which supernatural being is involved this time?

This one had so many cool aspects. Underhill. The Fae. An enemy who could control the will of those it bit was a wonderful twist and I was not anticipating who our culprit eventually turned out to be! As usual, Mercy had to use all her tools at her disposal to save those she loves. Interesting description of the pack and mating bonds. Was I the only one that got the shivers when Adam was displeased about Mercy talking to Bran? After the revelations in “Burn Bright” it’s hard to blame him for not trusting that contact.

Zee and Tad were great as always. The hints that Tad and Jesse may be a future thing? Yes please!

Totally Awesome!

I love this book - this is the 2nd time I have read it & it was even better than the 1st read. Patricia Briggs is a gift to the sci- fantasy community. If you enjoy a book with a strong female lead character, shapeshifters & vampires, and a wonderful mix of humor & wit, this series is for you. Start with book #1 - you will not regret it. ( )

Finally! A Mercy Thompson book that didn’t include storylines with animal sacrifice. The last few books before this had me seriously hesitant to continue with the series, and even after buying this, it stared at me for about a week before I picked it up with the intention of putting it right back down again if it even looked at an animal the wrong way.

Fortunately – and unfortunately – I never had to put the book down. At least, not until 2.30am when I finally gave into sleep, only to pick it up again the next morning and finish it off.

That’s not to say the story was perfect; it was good, but the sub-plot between Mercy and Adam was meh, and got terribly schmaltzy towards the end (keeping in mind I have a low tolerance for “the power of love”).

The main plot concerned something that got out of Underhill and started possessing people, making them kill others, before it killed them and moved on. This was more interesting to me, although it never really achieved ‘gripping’. And towards the end, but long before the climax, I guessed who the smoke demon was, which was both a tiny bit disappointing, and also – YAY! I was right! – making it a wash overall.

Generally, I enjoyed the story and it restored my faith in the series. I hope book 13 stays away from the witches, although with that number, I don’t like my chances. ( )
