Author: Patricia Briggs

Series: Mercy Thompson #7

4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

When Adam and the pack are kidnapped by potential government agents, Mercy finds herself trying to protect Jesse, find out who kidnapped them, and rescue the pack. 

This book is a bit different from previous ones because it’s not really a monster they are up against, it’s humans. Mercy instantly steps up when she finds that Adam and the pack have been taken. She instantly goes about protecting Jesse and Gabriel, and keeping Ben in control of his wolf. I always love that Mercy never backs down and always protects everyone she can. She is the perfect mate for an alpha because they know they can always count on her to be there for them.

While the previous books have focused on one group of supes, this one mostly focuses on the pack and Mercy. Adam and the pack’s kidnapping was rough on everyone. People die, get abused, and everyone is poisoned with silver. It was really upsetting seeing the pack lose one of their own, especially considering who it was. While Mercy can tap into the pack with her mate bond, for a lot of their kidnapping she was in the dark about what was going on. It was rough on everyone, but especially Adam since he knew they were after Mercy and he had already lost one of his pack. We know this because we finally get some chapters from his POV, and I really want more now. 

While a lot of this book is Mercy trying to rescue and keep people safe, once the action started happening it didn’t stop. I enjoyed this story and the action, but I feel that the reasoning behind Adam’s kidnapping got to be a bit convoluted. We started with just human rogues, then some Fae were thrown in and it ended up with a vampire territory fight. The reasoning makes sense once it is all explained, but I think it can become confusing for people. 

Overall, this was another action packed story for Mercy and Adam. I love seeing Mercy and Adam work together and destroy their enemies. Also, I loved that we saw the return of some of my favorite side characters in this one.
