I really enjoyed this latest Mercy Thompson book.

I think that watching Adam and Mercy get married and have a honeymoon was great fun, especially since we all know Mercy can't go 5 minutes without a new enemy.

This time, the Fae are involved in their honeymoon plans, which can come to no good. But we get (for the first time) a bit of her Native American heritage here.

We learn about Mercy's father. We also see a lot of Coyote, the Coyote.

In this book, Mercy is up against an ancient river monster and some Otterkin who are eating all the swimmers. The river monster can "mark" a human with her tentacles, and that person (now "river marked") follows her directions, whether it's drown yourself, drown your children, or bring her more people, they obey. And Mercy is the only one who can stop her.

The middle of the book is fairly slow, but the ending is great, and I loved seeing all the other gods like Coyote, and the ending is abrupt as always, but she had to use the walking stick of hers as a weapon. Giving a fae artifact blood is never a good idea. But I love how she handled it.

And hello Adam! I loved him, LOVED him in this installment-wish we'd seen more of him.

Overall another great installment in the Mercedes Thompson series, if a bit slow at times.

AH Great review, Laurie. I wanted to like this book more, but for me it was just missing my favorite characters. I know that they were there in cameos, but still I wanted more of them, and more honeymoon time for Adam and Mercy.

I loved how his wolf responded to her once they were officially married.


Zeek Just started this last night! :)


Laura the Highland Hussy I hope you like it :)


Zeek Havent really been disappointed yet, so I cant see how I can't. I only read up to her getting Stefan out of the house so I havent gotten too far yet ...
