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…
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.
