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)

Two in a row! It's like Christmas! If Christmas was chuck full of creepy uberpowerful fae...

One of the major plot threads is dealing with the fallout of [b:Storm Cursed|25026912|Storm Cursed (Mercy Thompson, #11)|Patricia Briggs|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1530631118l/25026912._SY75_.jpg|44701530]. Mercy and co may have won the day, but in doing so they managed to tick off a great number of very powerful beings, lost a strong ally, and may have caused some permanent harm to Adam and Mercy's relationship. I really hated this at first--I've loved how solid the relationships of the main characters are in these books, letting them deal with huge problems together--but by the end I'm at least willing to see where this goes.

The other half is a return to the Fae, with underhill as creepy little uberpowerful girl randomly opening a door in Mercy's backyard. Of course some even creepier baddy has to sneak through and cause all sorts of mayhem and of course Mercy and co get to deal with it. And although I did figure out the twist at least a bit before Mercy, the idea of Rumpelstiltskin as the big bad was pretty hilarious.

And top of that, more Wulfe.

Not mere luck. I am stalking Mercy. Of course I was around, because that’s what stalkers do, or so I’ve read. It’s my new hobby.

Oh Mercy, what have you done there... We shall have to see.

Now I'm caught up and back to waiting again, but still... worth it!

Smoke Bitten is book twelve in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs and narrated by Lorelei King.

This series does need to be read/listened to in order.

As most of you know I’m a HUG Mercy Thompson fan. I just love this series and love that Lorelei King narrates it.

Mercy has a lot to deal with in Some Bitten. I felt it was a bit much. More than she's ever had to deal with before. We've got a runaway Fae from Underhill, a new pack in town causing problems and then there are the issues with Adam.

I was very frustrated at times with Adam and the Pack. By now I feel the Pack should have accepted Mercy. She's done so much for them and yet there are still issues. As for Adam he treated her un-kind and this blew me away. I was so shocked at Adam and his behavior. I thought Mercy and Adam had a better bound than this.

Another thing I noticed is that Mercy cried a lot in this installment. It felt way out of character for her. Mercy is strong, capable, has it together, and can kick-butt. All this crying made me wonder if she was pregnant; since she was so emotional in this installment. Thou it turns out she isn’t. Maybe one day. Thou I'm still puzzled by her crying in this one.

As always the story moves fast and we get a lot of action and drama. I am happy everything worked out, but Adam really upset me this time around. I was also worried for Ben. I love Ben and something happens to him, which scared me; because we've already lost so many of the Pack.

Narration: I can’t tell you enough how much I love listening to Lorelei King narrate the Mercy Thompson series. She does a spectacular job. Her performance is out of this world! I just love all the voices for each character. King gives them each a unique personality that you never feel like you don’t know who is talking. I highly recommend the audiobooks and/or reading the Mercy Thompson series.

Smoke Bitten was more emotional than ever; yet it still had all the high stacks adventure as previous installments. As always I'm looking forward to seeing where things go next.

Rated: 3.5 Stars
Narration: 5 Stars

OMG....just when you think Mercy has enough on her plate....

Something is wrong with Adam and their mating bond.

Christy, Adam's ex-wife is back to causing trouble.

We have rogue werewolves in the area trying to take over.

AND Underhill has put a doorway in the corner of their backyard.....and something may have escaped from there. It's bite and smoke can be deadly.

Just another day in Mercy's world but it's never boring.

I think I still enjoy this series after so much time because the characters grow, change, and sometimes leave us for a short time. I mean the basic personalities are always the same but they learn empathy and affection....some become harder because of events. But the stories always grab you and won't let you go. In Mercy's world the outrageous is totally believable.

The surprise in this one....Wulfe. Trust me, he'll never be the same....especially after his last scene. ( )

Listened to audio narrated well by Lorelei King.

Mercedes, Adam, the Pack and her allies have survived the witches attack but things are still not quite right. Adam has locked down their bond and is keeping secrets and not acting like himself and Mercy is determined to figure things out.

Underhill has created a door on their property and a nasty creature has escaped in the form of a psycho bunny. A rival pack is trying to take over their territory, creepy vampire Wulfe is stalking Mercy and Adam's ex-wife is still up to her annoying games.

This book feels like a day in the life of Mercy and her friends, with pack issues, family issues and murders to solve involving magic. Mercy is in the center of it all with her particular brand of chaos always ruining the bad guys plans and putting her own twist on solving the various problems she and the pack face.

There's action and mysteries, as well as pack squabbles and relationship issues all in one book, a little something for everyone. I enjoyed this book but with all that is going on in the book, a lot is left unresolved. There's a sense of this very big build up that isn't finished by the end of the book, leaving me feeling like it wasn't complete. Don't get me wrong several things are resolved but several other lines are left open ended leaving a reader to feel like the book was just getting started.

If you like my reviews I hope you will follow my blog. https://wyldheartreads.wordpress.com/
