Mercy, a coyote shape shifter and mechanic, has trouble with the wolf pack accepting her through her mating with the pack Alpha. She also has to keep an old friend from losing his mind, as well as being hunted by a mysterious fae who wants to have an object of great power that Mercy possesses. The trouble is, Mercy has no idea what that object is........

Most series have the same old tired plots and after several books, grow predictable. Not this story, which is the fifth in the Mercy Thompson series. Patricia Briggs has delivered another exciting, fast-paced read which has new twists, keeping the series enjoyable. An excellent read for urban fantasy fans which could be read as a standalone, as just enough basic background information is given to grasp things. I would recommend reading the whole series though, as well as the Alpha & Omega series, for a better grasp of understanding of events and because they are fantastic reads!
