Under the rule of science, there are no witch burnings allowed, no water trials or public lynchings. In return, the average law-abiding, solid citizen has little to worry about from the things that go bump in the night. Sometimes I wish I was an average citizen…
Mechanic Mercy Thompson has friends in low places-and in dark ones. And now she owes one of them a favor. Since she can shapeshift at will, she agrees to act as some extra muscle when her vampire friend Stefan goes to deliver a message to another of his kind.
But this new vampire is hardly ordinary-and neither is the demon inside of him.

First thought when finished: Yeah I have the next one sitting right here and ready to go!
What I Loved: I really love Mercy! I love her wit, no-nonsense attitude, and her ability to stick up for herself. I also love that she doesn’t always make the best decisions! I was glad that we got to glimpse into the vampire life a little more. While I don’t think they are all evil (not my sexy Stefan), I do think they have all shades of gray going on in their little den. I love how Patricia Briggs writes such strong female characters and makes you wonder just how powerful they are. The twists and turns with the Vampire/Demon were just fantastic.
What I Liked: Oh how I love the wolf pack! Seriously, I want to move in with them and shelter them after bad times. I really like how we are getting to know more and more about each of them through little snippets here and there! That is done rather brilliantly so that you don’t notice that by the end you know each of them a little bit more.
What made me go huh?: Still not loving the triangle!
Final Thought: Let me grab book 3!
