REVIEW by EN Blake: Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs – Includes an Excerpt!

In this powerful entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves…

My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.

And a coyote shapeshifter.

And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.

Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn’t stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae.

The reality is that nothing and no one is safe.  As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death.

But we are pack, and we have given our word.

We will die to keep it.

REVIEW by Lorna: Cry Wolf (Alpha and Omega # 1) by Patricia Briggs (@Mercys_Garage , @Mollykatie112)

Cry Wolf

Now Briggs begins an extraordinary new series set in Mercy Thompson’s world—but with rules of its own.

INTRODUCING THE ALPHA AND OMEGA NOVELS…

Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack…and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member—and as his mate.

REVIEW by Lorna: Alpha and Omega (Alpha and Omega # 0.5) by Patricia Briggs (@Mercys_Garage , @Mollykatie112)

ontheprowlIn Cry Wolf, New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs started a new urban fantasy series set in the world of Mercy Thompson — but with rules of its own. Now, read “Alpha and Omega,” the novella that inspired the new series, and see how it all began…

Anna Latham never knew werewolves existed, until the night she survived a violent attack… and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the Chicago pack, she’s learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But when she discovers wrongdoing in her pack, she has to go above her Alpha’s head to ask for help.

Charles Cornick is the son — and enforcer — of the leader of the North American werewolves. Now his father has sent him to Chicago to clean up a problem there. Charles never expected to find Anna, a rare Omega wolf — and he certainly never expected to recognize her as his mate…

This novella was originally published in the anthology, On the Prowl.

NEW RELEASE REVIEW by Jena: Night Broken (Mercy Thompson #8) by Patricia Briggs – Released 3/11! (@Mercys_Garage)

An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from a stalker. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.
Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.
Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s stalker is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.

REVIEW by Jena: Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson #7) by Patricia Briggs – Released 3/5 (@mercys_garage)

Mercy Thompson’s life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman—the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack—has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy’s life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more…

After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can’t reach Adam—or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They’ve all been abducted.

Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related—and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.

COVER REVEAL: Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson #7 ‘Frost Burned’ Cover Reveal (@mercysgarage)

Shapeshifter Mercy Thompson’s life is calming down, at least enough that she can focus on mundane matters like Black Friday sales. But on her return, Mercy is unable to contact her mate, Alpha Adam Hauptman, or the other members of their pack. All she knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related – and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from the most unlikely of allies: the vampire seethe.

REVIEW by @UrbanFantasyRev : Fair Game (Alpha and Omega #3) by Patricia Briggs (@mercys_garage)

 
They say opposites attract. And in the case of werewolves Anna Latham and Charles Cornick, they mate. The son-and enforcer-of the leader of the North American werewolves, Charles is a dominant alpha. While Anna, an omega, has the rare ability to calm others of her kind.
Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can’t afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father’s dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.
Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston, when the FBI requests the pack’s help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves-all of them were. Someone is targeting their kind. And now Anna and Charles have put themselves right in the killer’s sights…

Review: River Marked by Patricia Briggs

Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She’s never known any others of her kind. Until now.

An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River-one that her father’s people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help…

Review: Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs

Mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson, now mated to Adam, the Alpha of the local werewolf pack, never knows what the next day (or night) may bring. After all, her world is inhabited by witches, werewolves, and vampires. Three subplots—Mercy’s attempt to return a magical book of fae secrets to a fae friend-of-a-friend, her difficulties integrating into Adam’s pack, and her roommate Samuel’s misery over being a lone Alpha—come together seamlessly, and excitement builds as Mercy and her loved ones go through ever more intense experiences, including a house fire, a suicide attempt, a death sentence, and a reunion between long-ago loves.  While dealing with everything simultaneously, Mercy’s about to find out just how implacable-and dangerous- the fae can be.

Review: Blood Bound by Patricia Briggs

Blood Bound is the second book in the Mercedes Thompson series by fantasy author Patricia Briggs. Car mechanic Mercy Thompson is a Walker, a being who can shapeshift into a coyote at will and see ghosts. A bonus to being a walker is that it also makes her naturally immune to vampire magics and deceptions.

Mercy owes her vampire friend Stefan a favor. When he calls in that favor by asking her to accompany him to a meeting with a vampire from out of town she agrees to go. After all he only needs her there as a witness and as she is to attend the meeting in her coyote form it’s not like she even has to speak or take part in the meeting….

When Mercy and Stefan arrive at the hotel where the vampire is staying the only thing that Mercy can smell with her coyote nose over the stench of vampire and death is Stefan’s fear. Stefan is an old and powerful vampire. Mercy really doesn’t want to meet the thing that scares a vampire of Stefan’s strength.

The new vampire is not just a vampire, it’s a vampire possessed by a demon. Utterly evil, it murders for its own entertainment as well as for blood. Stefan and Mercy survive the meeting but they were no match for the demon possessed vampire who escaped. Mercy is called to give testimony to the vampire leader Marsilia that there is a demon possessed vampire on the loose in the Tri-Cities.

The vampires and the local werewolves form a small team to track and capture the demon possessed vampire but when they all fail to return Marsilia orders Mercy to join the hunt. It is up to Mercy to succeed in finding and destroying the demon ridden vampire before any more people, including Mercy’s friends, die.
