Mercy Thompson, car mechanic and shape-shifter, never knows what the day--or night--may bring in a world where "witches, vampires, werewolves, and shapeshifters live beside ordinary people". but she is about to learn that while some secrets are dangerous, those who seek them are just plain deadly...
Mercy is smart enough to realize that when it comes to the magical Fae, the less you know, the better. But you can't always get what you want. When she attempts to return a powerful Fae book she previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down. It seems the book contains secrets--and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands. And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side--leaving Mercy to cover for him lest his own father declare Samuel's life forfeit.
***I have missed Mercy Thompson. And yes, Mercy seems to bring trouble with her no matter what she does. Not all goods deeds are simple, and sometimes, trouble just finds you no matter what. This story is less complicated than previous ones, and if you haven't read them all, you might not understand the path of the Fae book and why Mercy has it to begin with. And Adam and Mercy's relationship becomes closer and her place in the pack is complete. So start at the beginning. You will love these characters as much as i do, each one has a story, and i find myself attached to all of them. My only wish is that Briggs wrote faster, i can hardly wait for the next one.
