Its hard to review this book without referencing what happened at the end of the previous book, Iron Kissed (Mercy Thompson book 3) because it has a huge impact on the characters and tone of this book (you can read my mini review of Iron Kissed here). That being said, I’ll try to be as spoiler free as possible. But if you haven’t read the previous books in this series; one, you’re missing out because they are among the best urban fantasy books out their; and two, prepare for a huge spoiler.
I’ll probably be saying this a lot on this blog, but I love Patricia Briggs. She manages to breathe life into everything she writes (I’m even enjoying her early straight fantasy works, though admittedly I haven’t been able get a hold of a copy of Masques yet, but I will, someday…) And the Mercy Thompson books are my favorite urban fantasy series so far, with this third addition to the series being the best yet.
