Iron Kissedby Patricia Briggs
I love this series and couldn't wait for the third installment, Iron Kissed. It was well worth the wait! Mercy is a kick-ass hero who takes no prisoners and just happens to be a shape-shifting mechanic living in a world of werewolves, vampires, and other magical creatures. Briggs's characters are original and entertaining, and she weaves a magical world that is not only believable, but also fascinating. Iron Kissed finds Mercy knee-deep in fae (fairy) politics and intrigue as she tries save a friend from execution for a crime he couldn't have committed. The ending includes a huge payoff for those of us wondering who Mercy's heart really belongs to making Iron Kissed the best yet in the series.
Synopses & Reviews
When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder, its up to shape-shifting car mechanic Mercy Thompson to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not. And she'll have to choose between the two werewolves in her life — whether she wants to or not.
"Shape-shifter Mercy Thompson has a complex life, juggling two werewolf lovers and a job working for a fae mechanic; things get even more hectic when her boss and mentor is arrested for killing a citizen of the fae reservation. As the fae seem content to let him rot, Thompson takes it on herself to clear her friend's name, beginning a lone-wolf investigation that may cost her life. Briggs's third novel featuring Thompson (after Blood Bound) is another top-notch paranormal mystery; her well-balanced contemporary world, where humans live uneasily among werewolves and fae, is still a believably lived-in world; the ever-present threat of government legislation against nonhumans (though familiar to X-Men fans) adds weight to her paranormal elements, and thoughtfully researched mythology adds rich detail. Thompson is a sharp, strong heroine and her lycanthropic love triangle is honest and steamy. Briggs never shies from difficult material, and she moves effortlessly from werewolf pack psychology to human legal proceedings, making this a tense, nimble, crowd-pleasing page-turner." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"In the increasingly crowded field of kick-ass supernatural heroines, Mercy stands out as one of the best." Locus
When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder and left to rot behind bars by his own kind, it's up to shapeshifting car mechanic Mercy Thompson to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not. And she'll have to choose between the two werewolves in her life-whether she wants to or not.
