Night Broken

A Mercy Thompson Novel

by Patricia Briggs

03 . 11 . 14

From Amazon:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson series has been hailed as “one of the best” (Fiction Vixen). Now, Mercy must deal with an unwanted guest—one that brings a threat unlike anything she’s ever known.

An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from a stalker. 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 stalker 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.

Patricia Briggs writes funny, fast-paced paranormal adventures that are fantastic to read.  Mercy Thompson is one of my favorite characters: she may not be the strongest or biggest predator but she makes up the difference with cleverness, persistence, and a whole heap of sarcasm.  She’s not perfect — not a Mary Sue.  She has some issues, but it just makes you cheer her on as she works through them.  If you liked Rose in Vampire Academy, or Katniss from The Hunger Games you will definitely like Mercy.

What are you waiting on…?

    Ohhhh, this is GREAT!! I’ve been meaning to start this series, and haven’t, yet….. but I can tell you that I LOVE kick-butt heroines, and Mercy is certainly one of those!! So thanks for featuring this, because I’m adding it to my TBR, where I have all the previous Mercy Thompson books!!

    The Mercy Thompson series didn’t work out for me. While I enjoyed the first 3 books, things started going downhill with the next two and I kind of just gave up.

    I have to agree though, Mercy was pretty cool! 🙂

  11. Love this series! <3 Mercy & Adam! Thanks for stopping by!
