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.
Reviews Mercy’s adjusting to lot of changes theses days; she’s now Mrs. Hauptman, wife and mate to alpha werewolf, Adam, and stepmom to his daughter, Jesse. This level of normalcy is refreshing compared to the usual whirlwind of her life. But of course things can’t remain peaceful forever. While taking advantage of Black Friday, Mercy and Jesse are in a car accident and find that they can’t reach Adam or anyone else in the pack. And it’s not a coincidence. The pack has been abducted and may be in serious danger. It’s a delicate time for the werewolf race as they work to gain public acceptance. Without her pack to turn to, Mercy will reach out to every ally possible to save them, including some new and unexpected faces. This was a really great read! I breezed through it in no time. I really missed Mercy and the gang. Maybe that’s a sign that this series is inching its way into my favorites group. And that’s a pretty exclusive club! But after this book it’s earned it. Adam is a true badass here, even tied to a chair! I don’t quote Paris Hilton often, but that “that’s hott.” Seriously, he’s to die for here, especially since we get TWO chapters from his point of view! His relationship with Mercy really is refreshing. Though they have some drama and angst, they are secure in their relationship and don’t bother with mind games. That’s become an oddity with a number of series, even some of my favorites. The story combines events that occur in Patricia Brigg’s Alpha & Omega series. It definitely helps if you’ve read the A&O series. I haven’t yet, but I was able to keep up with no trouble. Though at first I wasn’t really planning to read the series, but after Frost Burned I think I’ll go ahead and add A&O to my TBR pile, though I likely won’t get to them until next year, maybe around the time when Mercy 8 will be released. Thankfully that won’t be two years. This is one of my favorite Mercy novels, but I would have liked more Bran and Stefan (who I think deserves a spin-off of his own). The book wasn’t too short or long, but maybe if it were a little longer they could have had a little more presence. I hope we’ll see a good bit of them next time. This book is definitely a must read for Mercy fans.
Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series has been at the top of my MUST HAVE list since the series was first introduced. How can you not like Mercy and Adam and Warren, and even Jesse? Missing from action this time around was Samuel Cornick. We do, however, get the return of Zee! YAY! I love Zee and Mercy's interactions and I'm glad he made a brief but important return to the series. Another shout-out goes to Zee's nephew Tad as well as Stefan the vampire who enjoys a comfortable friendship with Mercy. Yet, let's not forget the only other human involved, besides Jesse, Kyle Brooks who really shines this time out. I really liked the way he stood up for himself and didn't back down in the face of troubles. We also get a unique look at Asil, who comes to us from the Omega & Alpha series. Asil is one of the more interesting and dangerous wolves you will read about in Briggs world and he and Zee have a sorted past as well. I liked that he actually stood with Mercy and tried to get her to understand that she alone can't be the force that stops all the evil in the world. Hopefully, Asil will show up in the next installment of the Omega & Alpha series. I thank Ms Briggs for writing chapters from Adam's perspective. It's nice to actually get to know him a bit better and understand what he's actually been through for his pack, as well as his own country. Adam is really protective of Mercy in ways that puzzle and frustrate her to no end. Adam should know by now that Mercy is a stubborn person, but she has the right temperament to get herself out of troubling situations. Frost Burned is no exception to that rule when she is caught in yet another game that has consequences for everyone involved, least of all the vampires under Marsilia. At least this time around, she doesn't end up in a wheelchair! The one constant that hasn't changed in Mercy's life even after marrying Adam is the packs extreme hatred towards her, especially Mary Jo and Honey, because of her coyote status and the fact that she now outranks Darryl and Warren. That status, however, once again comes in handy when the pack is taken and Mercy draws upon little known abilities to save them from further harm. I really got into this book from the first page to the last. It was nice seeing Mercy and Jessie spending quality time together even if it was shopping on Black Friday and ending up in a car crash! After the crash, things really picked up and so does the danger to Mercy, Jessie, & Gabriel. I think we really need a resolution on the whole Fae situation however. As you are hopefully aware by now if you read this series, that the Fae have all but abandoned the human world for their own reservation. With Zee's temporary return, I can only hope that we will be hearing more from him soon.
I actually really loved this book because of how much Mercy was her own person, with her own friends and allies. I especially loved how she knew where she was in the world and she was cool with it. I loved how much Adam loves her. I actually hoped since the baby thing came up, it would be cool if she had a baby with Adam. Be cool to see how it works out, maybe do a time speed up, so we see future, like three months, two years, five years, etc. Wulfe reference, interesting how some people really have been around for a long time and have so many passing histories with each other. Zee and Wulfe, Asil and Zee, etc... very neat. I can't wait the year for the next book. I'm a bit sad to see they don't plan to do another alpha and omega book in the series, which sucks.
