Honestly this book had gotten very blurry for me. But upon reread I really enjoy it and picked up on more than the first time I read it.

ShyBookOwl I really wanted to love this series but book 1 felt any too overly romantic, with all the "mate" talk. It turned me off. Is that the case all throughout the books? Or should I try book 2 one day? 5mo
KeepCalmWithBooksAndCoffee @ShyBookOwl I was just talking about this with someone. The first book isn‘t the best intro to this series. There continues to be a lot of mate talk and romantic relationships. However I really like Mercy and how she tends to defy the “mate” tropes in the series. So maybe? 5mo
ShyBookOwl @KeepCalmWithBooksAndCoffee hmmm... ok. Maybe I'll look for it at the library one day, rather than buy it, like I excitedly did for book 1. Thx! 5mo

Not as epic a “read stack” as my February Reads, but Feb was kind of an anomaly. Still pretty great with 14 completed reads! And I finished my Mercy Thompson reread with time to spare before the newest one drops in May! Frost Burned was my #BestOfMarch. It‘s probably the most empowering point in Mercy‘s arc. She‘s always a badass, but I consider this book peak badassery. Conversely, it also serves up one of the bigger punches to the feels.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Awesome job! 📖💖 8mo
Nichelle I was wondering when the new Mercy was coming out. Thanks! I can‘t wait! 8mo
ValkyrieAndHerBooks @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego thanks! @Nichelle You‘re welcome! It‘s been a little confusing because it was supposed to come out in March but she had to push the date back to May, so there were two dates floating around for a while. 8mo

I quite enjoyed this story! I liked how it split up the main characters & had them relying on their strengths to get through things. I also didn‘t see the twist at the end coming, and it made me like the book even more.

This book is fun and keeps the ending twist hidden despite some light hints through out the story. I also enjoyed the change in point of view to Adam as I felt it helped the story and supported his character development. 4/5 Stars

Heretherebedragons I agree. I love Briggs's storytelling style. I also love her way of pacing and unfolding of the plot. She's got "show don't tell" down to an art form, imo. 2y
iread2much @Heretherebedragons I agree! She respects the intelligence of her readers while not trying to over impress 2y

So I ended the month with 16 completed reads and well into 6 current reads! I also finished my Mercyverse reread and it was glorious! My pick of the month was Frost Burned. Mercy gets her bad assery on in a big way, and it‘s where Mercy meets my favorite vampire in the series, Thomas (sorry Stefan, I love you too, but he‘s too cute!) And that final showdown? Too good!

PurpleyPumpkin Wow, great month!👌🏽 2y

So, I just reread this and realized as I was reading that I remembered almost NOTHING about it! As I read, I kept thinking, how is it possible that I don't remember this?! But, getting down to brass tacks? This book is truly fantastic! Mercy is extra kickass in this one! I love it! As for the mystery of who is doing what and why? - I had no clue up until it was all revealed! And I've read this before! (Exasperated with myself here) So very good!

I would pick Mercy and her merry band of werewolves! They're resourceful, viciously protective, they have experience with kidnapping, many of them have military back grounds, and I mean, werewolves! Not mention that Mercy can be counted on to not only get the job done, but with sass and humor to boot! 😘

Crewgurl She is by far my favorite. Plus Emma Watson in real life is also amazing. 2y

I loved this book. The pop culture references after great and I live the direction the series is going.

This is #7 in the Mercy Thompson series, and I've enjoyed reading every one so far. This one (imo) did not have the excitement level that some of its predecessors did, but it was still an original, well-told story and further advanced Mercy's growth and development as an Alpha mate and heroine in her own right. Love this series! #romantsy #osrbc

OK, I've always been one who doesn't give up on a book. The last two days, I've called it quits on 2. One because I felt it degraded women (I'm starting to understand why I veer away from a lot of modern romance), and the second because well, it simply didn't hold my attention, and I didn't like the direction it was going. So I'm back with Mercy...HER, I can count on! ❤ #romantsy #osrbc

Spacegirl Somehow the part where Mercy gets under the influence of the "peace and quiet" reminds me of those week characters? 3y

Mercy Thompson #7 continues to be action packed, putting Mercy under several competing pressures and culminating in the kind of boss fight that seems as close to realistic as you can get in an urban fantasy. By this point it helps if you've read the first two Alpha & Omega books, but it isn't vital. Pigeons continue to come home to roost & Mercy continues to grow and appeal as a strong female lead. Fabulous stuff!

This one wastes no time in getting started and remains steady throughout. Such a good addition to the series!

Most of my favorite reads for the year. I really developed a love for fantasy series this year.

robinb #Christy2318 I've also discovered some great fantasy this year....total new genre for me. Kate Daniels, Kingmaker Chronicles, Wraith Kings, etc. I've never read Patricia Briggs. Do you recommend the Mercy Thompson series? Any others? 3y
Christy2318 @robinb - The first few Mercy Thompson books aren't as strong as the rest of the series but by book 4 or 5, I liked them as much as Kate Daniels. I have the first Kingmaker Chronicles book out from the library now. I was late to the party reading Mortal Instruments and The Lunar Chronicles this year. I loved them as well. Also Sabaa Tahir An Ember in the Ashes & A Torch in the Night 3y
robinb Thanks for the recommendations! I loved the first Kingmaker and am anxiously awaiting the second one next week. 3y
BeveragesAndBooks Yes to both The Hating Game and Dumplin'!!!! In my top as well. 3y

Gave up on the Couple Next Door. Picked up one of my favorite series. Although, she has these chapters going 20 pages and she could really trim them down.

Is it just me, or does this series get more predictable and underwhelming with each book? I enjoy them, but I want some new stuff.

The bald man froze, and I patted Ben on the head. "Sorry, Ben," I murmured. "No eating the bad guys when they are tied up, and the police are on the other side of the door."

I got less than a 100 pages to go and I love the characters so much! I'm meeting the author this Saturday for a signing and I got one more book to go! Super excited!
