New in the #1 New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series.
In a world where "witches, vampires, werewolves, and shape-shifters live beside ordinary people" (Booklist), it takes a very unusual woman to call it home. By day, Mercy Thompson is a car mechanic in Eastern Washington. By night, she explores her preternatural side. As a shape-shifter with some unusual talents, Mercy's found herself maintaining a tenuous harmony between the human and the not-so- human on more than one occasion. This time she may get more than she bargained for.
Briggs makes a well-deserved move into hardcover with the rousing fourth adventure for kick-ass were-coyote auto mechanic Mercedes Thompson. Healing in body and spirit after the events of 2008's Iron Kissed, Mercy is preparing to marry alpha werewolf Adam Hauptman when an old friend asks her to help fend off a nasty ghost. It's a good time for Mercy to leave Portland, Ore.: vampire queen Marsilia is after her and her vampire friend Stefan for successfully hunting down a monster that should have killed them. Mercy leaves Adam to negotiate peace with Marsilia and heads to Spokane, Wash., to investigate the ghost, an unexpectedly complicated task. Though action supersedes characterization, the preternatural culture of vampire seethes and wolf pack politics is deeply intriguing. Briggs provides plenty of detail about Mercy's complex world without boring info-dumps, satisfying both new and longtime readers. (Feb.)

3 . Love this series
Posted September 30, 2009 by AProphet , KNoxvilleMercy keeps getting better and the bad guys keep getting badder. Love the series, love anything I have read of hers (not everything, but a lot). I adore the way she doesn't do cliffhangers. If you love traditional vamp books, or were books, you won't like this. Because she went a new direction and it was so a way right turn!
4 . Another Great Book in a Fabulous Series
Posted February 06, 2009 by Quilts2 , Western Springs, ILYou do not have to read these in order but like all series it does make things easier. The Mercy Thompson series is one of the best fantasy series going! Great and likable characters, plots where something actually happens, attention to detail to create a believable world and an unusual heroine who doesn't always look beautiful. Like the first reviewer...I cannot wait for the next installment!
