There is a TWELFTH Book!!! I'm just so damn happy!! I've gotten so used to a new Mercy book every year for the past few years and I simply don't want this awesomeness to end. These books are like warm, gooey Chocolatey Brownies!

Smoke Bitten, was exactly what I needed. Not only was it a story that engaged and captivated me, it also allowed me to leave RL behind and enjoy the world of Mercy Thompson to the fullest.

I need this. Now.

Also, the cover was just revealed on Briggs' social media and it's beautiful.

Fabulous! The marital problems facing Mercy and Adam were compelling and heart-breaking, and I loved how they thematically played into the story. It was also great fun to try and guess the identity of the monster before Mercy could. (I totally didn't manage to.)

Another great Mercy read.

Thank you to Berkley Publishing Group and NetGalley for a copy. This is my honest review.

When you look for the ARC on NetGalley and you can't find it... Am upset. I guess this just means I'll stake out my local bookstore on the publication day to read it! Love this series.

Just got a notice that Briggs is giving away reviewer copies of Smoke Bitten prior to its spring 2020 release. I went to the series list page and noticed that the model used as Mercy and the tattoos vary often. Here there is no chest tattoo. In other places it's a rose, a Hamsa hand, and others. Strange. (I get that sometimes the model changes but isn't that more of a photograph thing?)

I can't wait. Why so far away though, read storm cursed with in about the same week it came out give or take little time for work and sleep. I simply couldn't put it down, hopefully this will be the same gripping adventure.

I love the Mercy Thompson Series, but this cover is seriously the ugliest thing I've ever seen. No way am I buying it.
