But she is about to learn that while some secrets are dangerous whose who seek them are just plain deadly. I'm going to put off reading the next one for as long as I can since I don't want to be done with the series so soon! Of course, Mercy has her own problems. I love how Sam has developed from a possible love interest for Mercy to such a good friend and I can't wait to see how things pan out for him. I absolutely love this series! Anyone who has read any of the books in this series will already know that Mercy has a knack for drawing attention of the supernatural races who are more powerful than she is. He didn't love her, but he'd loved taking care of her. Even though my big heaters were keeping the edge off the cold, we both wore jackets. We also get silver garlands, glowing rocks, and a new home for Mercy.
As always, Lorelei King does a fabulous job of bringing this unique, magical world to life! They must not let said fae queen once called Daphne get her hands on Silver Borne, a magical artifact of great power, crafted centuries ago by Ariana, under duress. And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side-leaving Mercy to cover for him, lest his own father declare Sam's life forfeit. It houses the sorts of businesses that wouldn't thrive in the bigger mall in Kennewick: nonchain restaurants, several antique junk stores, a couple of resale clothing boutiques, a music store, a doughnut shop, a bar or two, and several shops best described as eclectic. Silver Borne Mercy Thompson 5 Being a mechanic is hard work. It begins with a novella titled Alpha and Omega published in the On the Prowl anthology. Beyond that we really get to delve into the issues that Adam's been having in his Pack.
One little nudge and things get interesting fast. Briggs creates both well-rounded characters and a complex mythology, resulting in a rich read that's far more than a series of action adventures strung together. Overcome by visions of mayhem and murder, Aren vows to save her village from the ruthless raiders who have descended upon it-and killed her family. Doubtless he'd been too busy to take a good look at Sam - and Sam, miraculously, hadn't done anything to attract anyone's attention. Good to know he has neighbors who are watching over him. We were bound not just by love, but by magic. Silver Borne is no exception to this rule.
I always love the ones that deal with the fae a little bit more than the others. I'm looking forward to the next installment! Again, I wish there had been more explanation into Sam's developments, but hopefully one day she will write a great short story or something about it! Adam was wearing a tux. To make matters worse Samuel, who's depression has been worsening over the months, has taken a turn for the worse. I wanted more of this story line, but nice. But these last few months, as I've gotten to know him better, I think it is because his face embarrasses him. Phin's neighbor hadn't said he was working at the store.
I'm sick of the damned Fae. The characters are beginning to feel like old friends. Maybe I was just being paranoid. Overall, another great installment in the Mercy Thompson world with some minor things to niggle at me. In this installment, the bond between her and Ad Seriously, this is one of the most kick ass Urban Fantasy series out there.
I don't like that Briggs has made her werewolves have split personalities. Werewolves are primitive, volatile and violent, but they still have human connections and family and Pack are important to them; Vampires are creepy and cold but even they have a Seethe that they protect and they used to be human. Her relationship with Adam heats up and her position in the pack creates challenges. The Fae continue to be the more intriguing and mystifying species that I have come across in any urban fantasy series. This wasn't the most exciting book in the series or my favorite but it was still a very solid read. All characters undergo changes and the story continues to expand. Do you have the store's number? She still isn't as much of a smartass as I would like, but she is becoming more and more fun as time goes on.
Last time the vampires were gunning for her, this time the local Fae are looking for something she is in possession of, though she is not exactly sure what that is. And then the fact that it was never brought up again. Briggs wrote Moon Called, which was published in 2006 and made it to the bestseller lists. They're too otherworldy and overly-magical for the kind of urban fantasy I enjoy. Now Mercy's the target, along with the pack, of someone who wants it badly.
Can Mercy help Samuel regain control before the other werewolves find out what has happened and what does the powerful fae want with the book? Up from 4 to 5 stars. And if she isn't careful, she may not have many more. And in this book, she's in thrall thanks to some sort of Fairy collar. I really enjoyed this book. The slavering wolf can actually control themselves, if they are old and really powerful.
Adam and Mercy's relationship strengthens in spite of some outside interference and I'm always impressed with the loyalty and love between them. I don't know why the author gave Mercy a boyfriend who she has to leave on the sidelines every time that Mercy does anything. For survival Samuel's wolf has taken control but that makes him dangerous - and marks him for death if Adam and the Marrock find out. I think I actually enjoyed this installment in the series better than the last, the characters were really fleshed out, the mystery was well-plotted. They don't keep secrets and when they do they feel terrible about them.
Patty is a wonderful writer who has a knack of keeping the reader interested. I'll keep looking for him. Usually Mercy's adventures are action driven with a lot of humor, wit, danger, and a sprinkle of romance to tease readers. She finds herself being contacted by the Patricia Briggs does not disappoint us in Silver Borne, the 5th book in her fabulous Mercy Thompson Series. But I'd jerked my head up in reaction to his apology and slammed my forehead into his chin. So I'd been staying open later and working on the weekend to make a little extra money. I didn't always love him, but I always wanted him around.
