Mercy Thompson, car mechanic and shapeshifter, never knows what the day - or night - may bring in a world where "witches, vampires, werewolves, and shapeshifters live beside ordinary people" (Booklist). But she is about to learn that while some secrets are dangerous, those who seek them are just plain deadly...

Mercy is smart enough to realize that when it comes to the magical fae, the less you know, the better. But you can't always get what you want. When she attempts to return a powerful fae book she previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down.

It seems the book contains secrets - and the fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands. And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side - leaving Mercy to cover for him lest his own father declare Samuel's life forfeit.

All in all, Mercy has had better days. And if she isn't careful, she may not have many more...

Before I start I have to pick on the cover. Would you look at that! It’s simply gorgeous! My respect to the artist who painted it.

It’s been a while since the last time I’ve read a Mercy Thompson book. I was a bit afraid that I’d miss certain details because of this but thankfully I didn’t.

I don’t know why it’s always difficult for me to write a review for this series. I get so sucked into the books that I stop making notes about it while reading. And after I’m done with the book I keep telling myself ”Wow! This was sooo good!” but when I open Word to start writing the review I stare at the blank page while having a stupid face because nothing comes out. It’s a curse I tell you!!

Anyways, here are some thoughts on this.

The story is really emotional and sucked me in since the beginning. This series is getting better and better. It was the cure to my readers block.

I’ve always loved Mercy. She’s brilliant, strong and independent. Makes me wanna take her as a role model. Heh! Mercy and Adam are so damn awesome together; I really respect their relationship. Sam was strange but I was happy that he got over the “problem” he had. The pack was great; we got lots of action and emotional moments with it.

And of course an awesome ending was the perfect topping!

Ugh I sound like a robot lol!
