An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from her new boyfriend. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.

Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.

Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s ex is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.


My Thoughts:
As usual with the Mercy Thompson series, I was glued to the pages. I detested Christy (Adam's ex-wife and master manipulator) and I dreaded her bit in the story. The saving grace was that Adam staunchly supported Mercy, and they were a united front. I do wonder why the heck he let Christy answer his phone so many times, though! The action and plot were fast paced and distracted me from Christy enough to enjoy the story. Mercy shined the whole way through, but I wouldn't have minded if she was a tad more petty and mean to the ex-bitch, but that would've given power to Christy's attempts to undermine Mercy's standing with both Adam and the pack. I marvel at Mercy's people skills and ability to think things through. Love that she's a total badass, too!

This series is just pure awesomesauce, and Lorelei King’s narration completely enhances the experience! A total recommend!

  1. SQUEE!! Loved this story. Hated Christy. I wanted to smack the entire pack into submission and tell them to wake up when it came to that manipulative chick. Sheesh.

  4. I stopped after the first few books and I need to get back to this series. I had no idea how long it would run for, or how many people loved it... Now I feel like I'm missing out. Appreciate your thoughts on this volume - they reminded me to get back on track here ;)

  8. I NEED TO READ THIS AUTHOR! I've heard so much about this and the Alpha & Omega series. This plot line freaks me out, honestly, but I'm happy to hear these two stick together and don't waver! Great pointed review!

  11. I love the Alpha & Omega series so much, so I definitely need to give this one a go. I just hate being so many books behind, and the sticky love triangle in the first couple of books. :P
    I don't think I'd be a fan of Christy either, but I'm glad the rest was great for you!

  14. Glad to hear that this series keep amazing you. Unfortunately, I couldn't get past through the first book. I'm a big fan of this genre, but the story just failed to win me over. :/
