I follow several supernaturalparanormal series but this one is asily one of my favorites Brigg s does a fabulous fabulous job of being consistent with her characters while helping them to grow and change I am ceaselessly impressed with how she juggles all her supernatural aspects So far she has kept Montana Dreams everything on anven keel and has given us the information we needed without doing a chapter of info dump or disrupting the action And the way she writes relationships is fantastic not just the romance between Mercy and Adam but Mercy s other relationships as well So many heroines are solitary relying primarily on the hero to form who they are but Mercy is her own person She is complete without Adam and better with him She has friends who care about her and friends she cares about In other words like a real woman she has a lot of aspects that she juggles to make her life work And make it work she does I can t deny that I read this book in one sitting and that the narrative was absorbing Briggs is a good writer But by the next morning all I could think of were complaints I suspect I ll be in the minority in disliking this thoughThere s no Stephan at all Maybe the author thinks Immerwelt - Der Pakt everybody is sick of vampires I m not I m sick of the damned Fae Their presence has ruined this series for me They re too otherworldy and overly magical for the kind of urban fantasy Injoy I ve always liked Zee pretty well but I disliked Modern South Asia extremely the whole long seuence with the Fae towards thend of this book The previous book revolved around the Fae also but at least it had a better overall plot than this oneI don t like that Briggs has made her werewolves have split personalities I can see that a werewolf would think of himself as having a different identify when he transforms but to give the inner wolf 35 stars This was a decent book as part of the ongoing Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series and worth reading for those who are already into this series but not one of my favorites in this series It combines two or three plotlinesFirst we have Mercy s ongoing issues with her failure to be fully accepted by her mate Adam s werewolf pack which become Adam s issues This leads to some insurrection in the ranks and a series of mixed martial arts fights for position and rank in the pack including that of the Alpha The disclosure of the conspiracy and the martial arts fights were interesting reading Briggs said she worked with her husband to write the fight scenes in as authentic a way as possible and it shows Unfortunately this continuing plot about the pack s issues with Mercy has passed its Sell By date for my money We re kind of treading water here nowSecond there s the Silver Borne artifact plot A special book was loaned to Mercy by a bookstore owner in a previous book and when she tries to return it the bookstore is closed the owner is missing and Mercy is worried about him This ties into the third plotline a personal crisis that Mercy s old friend Samuel is having He s at the Picture Theory end of his ropemotionally and his wolf Sam the werewolf half of his personality takes over their body to prevent a crisis but that s only a temporary solution So Mercy has three. Mercy Thompson car mechanic and shapeshifter never knows what the day or night may bring in a world where witches vampires werewolves and shapeshifters live beside ordinary people Booklist But she is about to learn that while some secrets are dangerous whose who seek them are just plain deadlyMercy is smart nough.
Problems all of which are hitting the boiling pointMy favorite part of the book was the SamSamuel part the werewolf politicking and fighting would have been fun if it were fresh The Silver Borne artifact part of the plot wasn t at all memorable I don t recommend doing what Naomi and I did which is read through the Mercy Thompson books back to back It becomes reasonably clear that the reader is getting roughly the same story with different covers I ve spent a lot of time considering this the series has many ardent fans and I used to be among them I think it all depends on what one njoys in a story and how tolerant one is of repetition I d rate my tolerance somewhere in the middle but only until the tipping point occurs And Bid Him Sing either through saturation or through pet peeve I think series like this are bestnjoyed Aristotle Detective (Aristotle exactly as they occur published one at a time a year in between Then the repeatedxplanations and summaries don t irritate they only recall taking on the cadence of storytelling when the reader slips into the story world with the beginning long long ago and far far awayDespite a reliance on folklore and fairy tales the Mercy Thompson series is and remains a sanitized muted version of those grim worlds The slavering wolf can actually control themselves if they are old and really powerful The strange fae will probably help you if you amuse or respect them but Bones, Clones, and Biomes even the bad ones won t trap you for years until your family has died off All you have to remember is no thanking There are scary vampires but there s also one that wears t shirts and watches movies and a sheep necklace can protect you None of the wolves go crazy despite freuent assertions that it can happen No onexcept bad guys are ripped apart Marsilia repents her actions The fae victims are let go The misguided humans are coached Almost Bringing the Empire Home everyone gets a chance to redeem themselves There s very little truevil No one ven swears I note it because while it is one of the things I njoy that sense of ultimate goodness and happy Building the Cold War endings I also believe itxplains part of the series popularity Unfortunately familiarity also Canadian Art, Volume 1 (A-F) enables recognition of faults and there are uite a few The overall series arc lacks a sense of coherency After reading through a number of the Briggs family posts its clear that the seriesxpanded to accommodate popularity and not out of an internal sense of story progression The first was written Blood Bound came about because the first did well followed by a surprise contract to buy three books I d contrast this with another favorite Ilona Andrews who had a clear arc for a seven book series and a sense of where it was headed in both story and Counter-Amores emotion The plotting to date in Mercy has been roughly the same forach book someone is imprisoned With Mercy s special powers the group will save the day This is true in Moon Called Adam Blood Bound Stefen Dancing at Armageddon etc Iron Kissed Zee Bone Crossed Mercy and Silver Bourne spoilerMercy Themotional plotting is also startlingly similar Mercy will have trouble trusting her affection for Adam After mistrusting him when she should not have he will still support her and she will vow to trust him At the same time one of the To realize that when it comes to the magical fae the less you know the better But you can't always get what you want When she attempts to return a powerful fae she previously borrowed in an act of desperation she finds the bookstore locked up and closed downIt seems the book contains secrets and the fae will do jus.
