I could smell her fear, and it satisfied something deep inside me that had been writhing under her cool, superior gaze. I curled my upper lip so she could get a good look at my sharp teeth. I might only weigh thirty or so pounds in my coyote shape, but I was a predator…
Mechanic Mercy Thompson can shift her shape – but not her loyalty. When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder and left to rot behind bars by his own kind, it’s up to Mercy to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not.
Mercy’s loyalty is under pressure from other directions, too. Werewolves are not known for their patience, and if Mercy can’t decide between the two she cares for, Sam and Adam may make the choice for her..
Read for Fun!

First thought when finished: Oh Patricia Briggs you just broke my heart!
What I Loved: There is no way to review this book properly without spoilers and I really don’t want to give anything away! This book moved me to tears! The last 5 chapters were exhilarating, heartbreaking, and emotionally exhausting. I cannot stress enough just how powerful the writing was and how brilliantly executed this storyline was delivered. It is not for the faint of heart and I am sure that there is aftermath that won’t be so easily swept aside! Just read it!
What I Liked: Resolution to that pesky triangle I didn’t like! I about stood up and cheered. It was resolved in a real way and while I don’t think it is permanently gone (darn it)–I do think it was addressed for the time being!!!!
Final Thought: This one broke my heart! I am glad I had book 4 ready to go 🙂
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
