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 Perfection! Simply perfection. Another great edition in one of my top 3 favorite paranormal series. I wasn’t aware that this book had came out until I was browsing late one night on Amazon (I seriously need to set up my fictfact) and immediately jumped on it. OMG! I love this series so EFFING much! Mercy never fails to remind me of one of my closest friends with which I have a bit of tumultuous relationship. She (my friend and Mercy) have strong convictions and abide by their own ethical code regardless of how that action may affect their loved ones. But this simply makes Mercy more kick-ass in my opinion. Honestly, she has traits that I do not possess (and don’t really want to possess) but admire greatly. She is smart, self-sufficient, but she is also destructive in her need for independence. The supporting characters are really what make this series stand out. I always love packs and Mercy has a pack that is her own that may not even be aligned to Adam. I really hope we get to see more of Asil in coming books. He is dark from living for ages and could be dangerous, but seems to be an ally that could be good for Mercy in more than one way. Honey, though, seriously needs to get an attitude adjustment when it comes to Mercy. I’m sick of her. There are all types of paranormal creatures in this series, but my favorite has to be the fae. I adore the rich history combined with wit it takes to always speak the truth within a political minefield. I love the artifacts full of magic that seem to have a mind of their own. The only thing that wasn’t to my liking was the ending. The wrap-up seemed a bit rushed and I just wanted the story to go on and on. I mean with a story this perfect what reader isn’t a bit sad to come to end.
Oh I really missed Mercy Thompson and her world. I reread Moon Called not that long ago and I was so excited to get my hands on Frost Burned. I love Mercy and Adam and their wonderful relationship. There was such a long wait between River Marked and Frost Burned and it was so frustrating. Now I've finished it and it was great.
Mercy and Jesse are Black Friday shopping when they suddenly get into an accident. This ends up being a good thing but at the time it's a big hassle. When Mercy calls Adam to come pick her up, he doesn't answer. She calls the whole pack but no one answers. She even calls Kyle, Warren's boyfriend, to no avail. She ends up catching a ride to her shop where she meets up with Gabriel and Ben. Ben is in bad shape because he was hit with the tranquilizer that was invented by Gerry. Ben eventually is able to tell Mercy that the pack was kidnapped. We don't know who or why or where the pack could possibly be. I like that there were a variety of characters mixed in with this book. We don't have Sam or Bran but we do get Asil, a character from the Alpha and Omega series. I haven't read the latest book in that series so I don't know what happened exactly but apparently the government let a serial killer go because he was killing fae and werewolves. A fae murdered the murderer and then all the fae packed up and secluded themselves in the reservations. It's really unfortunate because I wish we could have had more Zee in the picture. But his son Tad was pretty awesome as well. We also got a lot of Kyle in the first part of the book. I really enjoyed that. He was always a secondary character but we got to see more of his personality. There were some slow spots but we also got to two whole chapters from Adam's point of view. I think it would have been a little better if it was in first person instead of third but I was very happy with that change of pace. Mercy discovered a new talent and their mating bond grew stronger. A lot happened in this book and in the end we find out why the pack was actually targeted and who was behind the whole thing. I wasn't really expecting it until I had it spelled out for me which is unusual because I can normally figure it out. Maybe I was just being a bit slow. I can't wait for the next book. It's quite unfortunate that it takes so long for them to come out.
I wasn't looking forward to Frost Burned as much as some people were, because I felt there had been a steady decline in the quality of the past few Mercy Thompson books--specifically, River Marked and Silver Borne were hardly entertaining to me at all. Which was sad for me to admit, because I SO enjoyed the first four books in the series. Even saying I didn't enjoy books 5 and 6, I still count this as my current favorite fantasy series on the market. Well I'm happy to report that my previous fears were unfounded! Frost Burned was extremely entertaining and I would say equals the quality of the earlier books like Bone Crossed, my fave in the series. I think Patricia Briggs should include vampires as much as she can in this series, since it seems like when she leaves them out, the book ends up suffering. (And I'm not saying this because I'm a huge vampire fan and whining when they get left out. In fact, this is the only book series I read with vampires in it AT ALL.) Even not being a vampire fan, I just couldn't help but notice that the Mercy Thompson books that include vampires in the plots just seem to be written better than the ones without. Maybe it's because she writes them as such anti-heros, not on the good side but willing to work with the 'goodies' when it suits their purposes. Everyone loves an anti-hero, eh? Anyway, if the Mercy Thompson novels continue on the line of Frost Burned, I will be eternally pleased! ....even if the title made no sense until the last 50 pages of the book.
