Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson series has been hailed as “one of the best” (Fiction Vixen Book Reviews). Now Mercy must deal with an unwanted guest—one that brings a threat unlike anything she’s ever known.
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 furthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back, and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get him, 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.

Mercy back on Audible.co.uk and doesnt disappoint

No idea why Audible UK has books 1 to 3 then misses 4-7 before resuming with book 8 but its really annoying, especially as audio versions read by Lorelei King do exist! just not for UK download.

This book is part of a sequence and will make a lot less sense if you haven't read/heard the previous ones so dont start here or jump here from book 3 as you will have no idea whats going on with Cayote, the walking stick, whats happened to the Fae etc.

Now to the story. If you have read previous books you should know what to expect and it follows the same basic formula with a few twists

Adam's ex wife appears in this book and I didn't really find her character believable, just too manipulative and scheming and I cant believe the others would welcome her like they appear to. Fortunately she is only a means to get the real baddie into the tri-cities and the real action with Mercy and the Wolves attempting to save the world from a psychotic paranormal killer is as gripping as always.

Lorelei does an excellent job reading the story and I cant imagine anyone else doing the voices, In particular Mercy's and Adam's are just perfect. Just one small annoyance when she has problems with the Canary islands pronunciations but its only one page.

A few new characters are introduced to the story which keeps things fresh, I especially liked Gary Laughing Dog who I hope we see more of in future books.

Shame its not a bit longer but its well worth a credit.

Every one a winner

Each book has a stand alone story but it is better to read them in order. The background builds into a full and complex story which is exciting and fun.

Good Addition!!

This addition was entertaining and full of events.. my favourite part was the inclusion of the e-wife and what a &^%*& she is :) But for some reason it didn't feel as major as previous books. I felt it a bit like a side story rather than a major one (not saying it was, but it felt like it). But even though, it was a good one.

New characters get to be introduced here and am looking forward for their part in future books.

Lorelei King is one of my favourite narrators, and I love her work.

Another Great Story in the Series!

The Mercy Thompson series is great and Patricia does a awesome job of creating a unique plot for each story. One of the things l love most about this series, is the characters. They have their own personalities and I've enjoyed how they've developed through the series.

Looking forward to the next book in the series but for now, I will be starting another series by Patricia..... I sure hope they are just as good as the Mercy Thompson series. :-)
