5 stars – I loved it!

Mercy Thompson Hauptman is a coyote shifter, Volkswagen mechanic, and mate to the werewolf alpha. Things quickly get out of hand when Underhill decides to create a door on their property, and unleashes a smoky enemy. The smoke creature can control anyone he bites and leave chaos and death in its wake. Now Mercy and the pack have to find it and stop it before it gains too much power.

This book was one of my most anticipated books of this year and it did not disappoint. I am a huge fan of this series and can read it over and over without ever growing tired of it. I always recommend this series to anyone looking for a good book. I already want to reread this book because I cannot get enough of this series!

This book has a slower pace than previous books in the series, but it worked beautifully for the situation. It was a bit of a mystery with Mercy trying to identify and stop the monster.  While slower paced, it was still an exciting story with plenty of action to keep it interesting. Mercy and Adam are also experiencing marital problems in this book, which really concerned me at first but by the end I felt that they will pull through it and be a stronger couple for it.  

Overall, this was a wonderful and different addition to the series. Even after twelve books, Briggs is able to keep the story fresh and exciting and make you long for more. I cannot wait for the next book and wonder what shenanigans Mercy will get into next.

Also, I love, love, love this cover!!

  1. I’ve only read one Mercy Thompson book … number 11 – because of an accidental Netgalley request.
    But I actually really enjoyed it, despite previously refusing to read the MT series when my wife suggested I do.
    Enjoyed your review of Smoke Bitten and it’s another reason for me to pick up #1 and work my way through.
