Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs

Date Read: 2014

Genre: Fantasy, Urban Fantasy

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

First Thought when Finished: Frost Burned was fantastic. This series just guts me every time!

Overall Thoughts: This series is just fantastic and Frost Burned delivered. I really love Mercy and Adam. They are such a great team! However, in Frost Burned I really love how every person brought their A game. This truly was a team story and most of my favorite characters were there. I love that we got to learn more about the Fae weapons. I love that we got more of the Vampires. I was sad about Mercy’s car! This was just very enjoyable and now I wait for the next one! I know this is the shortest review ever but it is hard to talk about this particular book without giving away spoilers. Trust me when I say fans of the series just loved this one and if you are not reading these–you should!

Final Thoughts: I love these books! I can’t wait for the next one which is right around the corner.

(NOTE: I borrowed this from The Book Goonie –THANK YOU AMY! However I noticed that I was getting emotionally distraught so I had to borrow it from the library in order not to do any damage to Amy’s pretty hardcover. That is true friendship folks–she let me borrow it knowing I am a book bender!)

  1. Book Goonie is a good friend. I suffer every time I lend a book because I don’t know if that friend is a book bender or not.
    I’m also looking forward to Night Broken. 🙂
    Great review.

  2. I love this series (Mercy was one of my first UF reads)! I have to admit that I didn’t love this book as much as the earlier ones. I just checked and I actually gave it 3 stars – I think maybe I was being a wee-bit too harsh. My expectations of this series are just so high and I felt like everything was too easy in this book. Doesn’t change that I’m super excited for the next one (already preordered – and since we live close now you can totally borrow mine after I read it if you aren’t getting your own. I’m a book bender too, so it’s fine lol)

  3. Right there with you — this series completely guts me. I LOVE Mercy and the whole gang (SAMUEL!!) and can’t WAIT for the next one (MARCH!!).

  4. Ahhhh! I need to get caught up on this series Felicia! I so adore Mercy and Adam as well, I miss them. I think I stopped at book 5, so I have a few books I need to make time for. Glad you think this series is still going strong at book 7!

    • That was me! I was at book 5 and then back to back book 6/7 which worked really well because they play off of each other. 🙂 I need to get caught up on Anna/Charles next!

    • I think I will be doing that one on Audio. I missed doing this one on audio. I just didn’t have the credits but I will save for Night Broken LOL
