There are miniature zombie goats! (Zombie goats would sound too And a zombie werewolf - and a lot of other zombies as well. As well as a giddy sword. This was the first Mercyverse book I read, and then quickly read them all in order. I fell in love with this urban fantasy shapeshifting Volkswagon mechanic very quickly.

I love the Mercy Thompson Series! Gotta have a werewolf.

the next to the last of the current series. It has been a wild & wooly ride thus far. I'm hoping Ms Briggs will write more.

Wish that Burn Bright didn’t spill over and ruin this series! Now witch born werewolves are coming out of the woodwork!
A poor attempt at explaining how Mercy (and by extension Bran and Charles) can’t detect black magic anymore!
A poor story line with an unexplainable frontal assault by witches. Too many holes!
And don’t mess with Wulf please!
And I swear if I read ‘nudge’ one more time, I’ll scream. Adam and Mercy are getting quite boring as a couple.

Some parts were funny. I liked the mini zombie goats. I didn't think some of the relationship development was quite as good as it usually is.

I usually love everything Patricia Briggs writes, and this story was really intriguing, but I felt like this novel just wasn't edited enough. There weren't any typos, but there were a lot of unclear interactions and conversations. For example, in one scene, character one calls another character (I'll withhold names and specifics so I don't spoil it) and Mercy narrates that they both knew, though neither said it in the call, what character one's big secret was. Then later, those two characters see each other in person, and character one reveals the big secret and the other says they'll accept it and move on. Then a paragraph or so later character one reveals the secret again and acts like it's the first time, and they have an argument about it. I feel like I missed something somewhere, because they seem to have the same conversation 3 times!

That's just one example, but it happens throughout the book. I also felt like some of Mercy's narration was out of character. I've long come to accept that Patricia Briggs will just throw in random events between books and mention them in the next book like we all already knew they happened, making me wonder if I missed a short story between books or something. But usually, the books themselves are not so confusing internally. Silence Fallen was one of my faves and I had high hopes for this one, but I was mostly confused and distracted by these unclear interactions.

I'll still definitely read the next book she publishes and hope it's back in line with her usual standards, but I can't say I whole-heartedly recommend this one.

Sadly, I was disappointed. It just didn't ring true. It wasn't a bad story, just not a good Mercy Thompson story. At one point I began to question if Ms. Briggs actually wrote it herself or if something happened and someone else had to finish it I have always enjoyed this series and I reread it all the time. Disappointed after the great setup in Burn Bright.
