Review: Mercy Thompson is a coyote shape shifter, in the last book she ends up owing the Fae a Favour. Well in this book the favour is called in and Mercy finds her self going into the Fae's reservation because someone is killing the Fae and they think Mercy is the only one who could sniff them out. On her trip round the reservation Mercy has to deal with some not very nice things, Fae playing tricks on her.But she finds out whos been killing the Fae she tells her good friend Zee who is one of Mercy's close friends And all so a Fea him self. Zee goes to confront the killer with another Fae called Uncle Mike but when they get to his house they find him all ready dead,Zee is then arrested for the murder of the muderer and its left up to Mercy to get him out becuse all the other Fae want him to take the blame so things are over and done with quickly. But Mercy being Mercy wont stand by and let her friend get convicted of something he didnt do. She put her Coyote nose to the floor and started looking for cluse, till one day she found one very big clue and it led right to the killer. But things turn nasty for Mercy with her being caught by the killer and then being raped (big shock) and the killer/rapist getting riped apart by a werewolf.
while this is all going on Mercy has to try and sort out the love triangle she has going on between herself Samuel (werewolf) and Adam (alpha werewolf). but as the book goes on Mercy and Samuel realise they love each other but not in the romantic way, and Samuel goes to let Adam he's stepping aside for him. Which im really pleased about because im a big Adam fan.
Over all view:
What to say. Hmmmmmmm well first all I love,love,love this series.The more you read the better they get. Mercy is one of my favourite characters ever, she wont let any one/anything stand in here way when she wants to get something done. she will do anything for her friends and I love that about her. I think Briggs has got a winner with this series, its just so easy flowing and easy to read. I dont think anyone will be disappointed with it. its full of action and has lots of heart racing moments. In this book we deal with a rape and I think briggs handled this very well. The way she wrote it she managed to get Mercy's feeling across so you could really understande her feelings.
