FIRE TOUCHED is another brilliantly magical book in the Mercy Thompson series. Typically I’d start to complain by the 9th book in a series that all of this has happened before and (mostly likely) will all happen again. With this series there really is little if no repetition of plot points that I can remember happening. Some new danger is always around the corner for Mercy to battle.

In DEAD HEAT, Patricia Briggs’ takes us back into her world of werewolves and shapeshifters, fae and elementals, humans and the mortal dangers that come when cultures collide.
Ardent fans of Patricia Briggs may have already pieced together parts of this collection, housed in beat up paperbacks and anthologies already published. To have these existing stories and more gathered and carefully arranged by series timeline, makes this lovely hardback a treasure for any collector to have on the shelf.
In NIGHT BROKEN our favorite coyote shifter not only has to deal with a raging Polynesia god, a missing Coyote, but also family issues surrounding Adam’s ex-wife.

When the world is as lush and mystical as Patricia Briggs has created for the Alpha and Omega series, it just begs to be adapted to a visual form.

It’s an excellent team, as this volume, is even more beautiful than the first.
It’s been two years since the last Mercy Thompson novel was published, but life for these characters hasn’t remained completely stagnant. If you’ve been reading the other series set in the Mercy Thompson world, Alpha and Omega, you know that some seriously huge stuff has happened regarding the Fae. We predicted that the fallout would hit Tri-Cities, and it did.
