Silver Borne (Mercy Thompson #5)by Patricia Briggs
2011 Endeavour Award Finalist
Irrepressible, coyote-shifting Mercy Thompson is back and her life is changing in some good ways and a few bad ways. Silver Borne, Patricia Briggs's fifth book in this dark fantasy series, finds Mercy struggling to adjust to her new mate bond with Adam, the Alpha of the local werewolf pack, while trying to find a missing friend and protect a fae relic that will cause havoc if an evil fae queen gets her hands on it. If this wasn't enough trouble, Mercy's roommate Samuel is struggling with some major issues and Adam wants her to move into his house. Can't a girl catch a break?
Briggs's ability to keep Mercy's story interesting and fresh is unparalleled. Not only is each story unique, but the characters evolve and change along the way. She is truly a master of the urban fantasy genre.
Synopses & Reviews
All-new action in the #1 New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series.
When mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book she'd previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down.
It seems the book contains secret knowledge — 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 Sam's life forfeit.
All in all, Mercy has had better days. And if she isn't careful, she might not have many more to live...
"Coyote-shifting garage mechanic Mercedes Thompson, now mated to Adam, the Alpha of the local werewolf pack, embarks on her exciting fifth dark fantasy adventure (after 2009's bestselling Bone Crossed). Three subplots — Mercy's attempt to return a magical book to a fae friend-of-a-friend, her difficulties integrating into Adam's pack, and her roommate Samuel's misery over being a lone Alpha — come together seamlessly, and excitement builds as Mercy and her loved ones go through ever more intense experiences, including a house fire, a suicide attempt, a death sentence, and a reunion between long-ago loves. Briggs creates both well-rounded characters and a complex mythology, resulting in a rich read that's far more than a series of action adventures strung together. Fans of the series will be thrilled; new readers should start at the beginning or risk drowning in the immersive world-building. 6-city author tour. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"[I]ts pacing is practically perfect....A must for anyone following the series, one that should also be popular among fans of paranormal romance." Booklist

Mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book, but it seems the volume contains secret knowledge — and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands.
Mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson never knows what the next day (or night) may bring. After all, her world is inhabited by witches, werewolves, and vampires. But now a book of fae secrets has come to light, and Mercy's about to find out just how implacable-and dangerous- the fae can be.
Includes her debut novel Masques and its sequel Wolfsbane—together in one volume
Before there was Mercy Thompson… In a world far removed from the Alpha and Omega werewolves… There was the shapeshifting mercenary Aralorn.
After an upbringing of proper behavior and oppressive expectations, Aralorn has fled her noble birthright for a life of adventure as a mercenary spy. Her latest mission involves gathering intelligence on the increasingly charismatic and dangerous sorcerer Geoffrey ae’Magi. But in a war against an adversary armed with the power of illusion, how do you know who the true enemy is—or where he will strike next?
For the last ten years, Aralorn has led a dangerous existence. Now she must return home, for her noble father, the Lyon of Lambshold, has passed away. But when Aralorn and her companion Wolf arrive, they find that not only is he not dead, but a darkness is very much alive within him…
