Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs
Pub­lisher: Ace
Pages: Kindle Edition, 352 pages
Series: Mercy Thompson
Pub­li­ca­tion date: March 5th 2013

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.

Say hello to my most disappointing read of 2013.

I am not being a drama queen. I am a huge, and I mean HUGE, Mercy Thompson fan and I was expecting this book to be as awesome as the previous ones. Well, it wasn’t. Frost Burned single-handedly pissed on all my expectations and presented me with a snoozefest as compensation.

Well, you know what? I am not the kind of person who will bend over and take it just because I love an author or a series. My expectations are, and always will be, high from the things that I love. I cannot be a fangirl about this, I really can’t.

Frost Burned’s plot is one of the most unoriginal and boring plots I have read in a long time. It managed to bore me to tears. Adam’s POV was a nice change, but it didn’t impress me much. It lacked the “danger” that I was expecting, and just brought up a way too serious and, yes this is the key word here, boring man.

Well.. Adam does seem like he is way too serious and boring. Am I wrong to expect something more exciting from his POV? Maybe.

Mercy was mostly just playing the paragon in this one. And she was extremely – let me hear it!!!! - boring as well. No surprise there.

There was a point, say 60-70% in, where things picked up a bit, thus my 2.5 star rating, but it didn’t last long enough. Say about 3 chapters long. The conclusion was a mess, the ending was a mess. Meh.

I will be reading the next Mercy though. I’m too big of a fan to give up that easily.

2.5 stars
