by

Silver Borne: (Mercy Thompson #5) Cover

 

Staff Pick

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

Publisher Comments:

 #1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggss Mercy Thompson series has been hailed as “one of the best” (Fiction Vixen). Now, Mercy must deal with an unwanted guest—one that brings a threat unlike anything shes ever known.

 

An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adams ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from her new boyfriend. Adam isnt the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adams house, Mercy cant shake the feeling that something about the situation isnt right.

 

Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and shes willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adams pack against Mercy.

 

Mercy isnt about to step down without a fight, but theres a more dangerous threat circling. Christys ex is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.
