Mercy Thompson’s life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman—the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack—has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy’s life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more
After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can’t reach Adam—or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They’ve all been abducted.
Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related—and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.
Mercy Thompson is just plain fun. She is like a paranormal nancy drew (for those of you that can remember that childhood series). She is the Coyote mate to the Werewolf Alpha and never seems to stay out of trouble. Car accidents, Fae assassins, kidnappings, and a vampire battle to the death...all in a days work for Mercy. She has a vampire friend who loves scooby-doo, and a fae assistant who has an affinity to metal, and a step daughter who never lets you get bored. Throw in a pack of werewolves and you have non stop chaos, but with lots of humor and fun! Don't let the cover art fool you, this is a great series.
