Series: Mercy Thompson #7
Author: Patricia Briggs
March 5, 2013 Now Available!
The Overview: Mercy Thompson’s life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman—the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack—has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy’s life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can’t reach Adam—or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They’ve all been abducted. Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related—and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.
One of the best urban fantasies out there – if you haven’t read Patricia Briggs, you’re sorely missing out!
Recommendations: If you love Mercy, but have yet to read the Alpha and Omega spin-off series, consider doing so before March, as there are a few events that might add some great back-history for Frost Burned. I recommend you start with “Alpha and Omega” a novella available in either ebook format or part of the anthology “On the Prowl.”
