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 πŸ™‚

  1. For some reason werewolves aren’t my thing, but maybe because I haven’t read one book (unless Twilight counts) that had them. I guess I need to start somewhere so I can have a real opinion πŸ™‚

  2. It’s been a while since I read this one but I do remember being quite brokenhearted over it. A summer re-read of this series might be in order.

  3. It has been awhile since I read this one…trying to remember what broke your heart..this is the one with Sam and his problem right? I love Sam, I want him to be happy. I liked this one with the Fey and Zee…that walking stick it just keeps popping up!
