Mercy Thompson returns in the seventh novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

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.

Mercy is back. After the last two books which, were a little lack luster to say the least; Mercy is back with her usual cast of compatriots. This is briggs at her best. This is why I read her. It's dynamic and engaging. Once you start, you don't want to put it down.

Another amazing installment to this series. It always amazes me how the author can fit so much action into such a short book (any book under 400 pages is short for me). And while short, the book does not lack for details in any way. The characters are as always, excellently written. I especially liked how Mercy is still dealing with the aftermath (panic attacks) due to the events at the end of Silver Borne. It just proves that no matter what type of supernatural you are in her world; you are still human. I was also really glad to see the return of Stefan and hope to see more of him in the next book. Ben has also really grown on me and has become one of my favorite characters. It's great to see how much he has grown and that he is learning to appreciate and even care about other people besides himself. Overall I thought that the story was very good and will probably read it again as soon as I can find the time to do so.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Associate Reviewer - Shawnie:

*ARC was given to do an honest review of the book. This will be a spoiler free review (sorry to disappoint).

It's finally here, Mercy Thompson is back and better than ever.

I have to admit I was just a tad bit nervous to start this book. I had previously read an excerpt Briggs had posted and it had me scared for Adam and his wolves. But temptation's name is "books", and before I knew it, I was was turning to page one and then finishing the book immediately thereafter. My first words upon completion were "Holly fires, Batman. She did it again."

Briggs brings us back to the Tri-Cities, with Mercy all better after her last adventure during her honeymoon with her sexy Alpha husband Adam. In this installment, our wonderful author queen takes us back and then delves into the issues that had began to arise in Mercy's surrounding world - and if you hadn't noticed, she pieces her other series in so that you understand and follow along evenly with her.

Briggs weaves an interesting story around what has happened with the fae, the government, and the humans Mercy interacts with. She craftily expands and blends a melting pot of emotions, back stories, and 'oh crap batman, did that just happen?' together to produce an (in my opinion) award winning novel for her readers.

Action has been a standing theme of all Briggs books, but with this one, she slows it down and gives us a deeper, more 'thought than deed' Mercy, who still has no issues kicking butt and taking names for her husband and Pack. Mercy has to think her way out of almost every situation, and enlist the help of friends and allies ��" some more grudgingly than others. But the action is there regardless, because hello, you can't think your way out of everything, sometimes you are forced to fight!

The Pack and Adam are in serious danger and Mercy has to figure out a way to not only help them, but get to the bottom of what is really going on. Emotions run high and just when you think things can't get better, a very "special" something pokes his head in to give his two cents. But alas , just because it's better, doesn't mean things are fixed. No, there are always twists, bumps and some scrape a longs to keep you twitching on the edge of your seat.

Frost Burned is packed to the brim with surprises, humor and emotional tear jerking moments. There are good guys, bad guys, and the really bad guys. There are "Oh My God, noooooooo" moments and "Yeah, that's right take them down", moments. Because hey.... That's what you get when you have a pissed off Alpha, loose government loyalties and a feud that spreads to neighboring parties and causes this whole messed up situation.

I happily enjoyed this installment and cannot wait for the seventh book to be announced, soon I hope (fingers crossed).

I know I shouldn't do this, but damn this is quote worthy...
"Are you not my daughter, whispered another voice, Coyote's voice, so quiet I almost missed it. Had I not been caught in that first moment of shock when everything goes quiet before the pain begins, I would not have heard it.
Coyote never loses, Coyote told me. Because i change the rules of the games my enemies play. What are the rules of your game."

Yeah awesome, is it not?

I can honestly give this book a five star rating, because it actually deserves it. Great read Mrs. Briggs!
