Mercy's Still on Top!

I would like to thank Ace & NetGalley for an e-ARC of this book to review. Though I received this e-book for free, that has no impact upon the honesty of my review.

Goodreads Teaser: "Mercy Thompson has been hailed as "a heroine who continues to grow and yet always remains true to herself."* Now she's back, and she'll soon discover that when the fae stalk the human world, it's the children who suffer...

Tensions between the fae and humans are coming to a head. And when coyote shapeshifter Mercy and her Alpha werewolf mate, Adam, are called upon to stop a rampaging troll, they find themselves with something that could be used to make the fae back down and forestall out-and-out war: a human child stolen long ago by the fae.

Defying the most powerful werewolf in the country, the humans, and the fae, Mercy, Adam, and their pack choose to protect the boy no matter what the cost. But who will protect them from a boy who is fire touched?"

As with the prior Mercy Thompson books this one runs pretty true to form. Crazy situations that somehow end up revolving around Mercy, and usually spilling out into some, if not all, of the pack. Since Mercy made Joel part of the pack without going through the proper channels there's been some tension between certain pack members and her. So when she makes a rash declaration that's unfortunately picked up on national news, things go from mild tension to just under DEFCON Five. But Mercy was being guided by ancient fae Magic at the time, so it wasn't really her fault. Was it?

Mercy is still Mercy, yet she continues to evolve with each new adventure. These days her changes aren't as radical, usually more emotional as she and Adam try to find a happy medium for both of them to survive, and thrive, in their still shiny new relationship. She has her man, family, and the pack. So the big stuff is mostly handled. Mostly. Her mouth still has a tendency to get her into trouble. Thankfully she has enough control to avoid verbal trouble with the fae. At least she usually does. Some of that is thanks to her mechanics mentor and friend Zee. Though Zee and his son Tad disappeared in the last book, they've still got roles to play in this one, so we get to see them in one way or another in part of this tale. In some ways it's like going back to the beginning, which is part of what makes Mercy's stories so engaging and endearing; her ability to make unusual friends into part of her extended family, and keep them as constants in her life is a real part of her attraction.

She, Adam, and the pack still have battles to fight, evil to triumph over, treaties to draft and enforce. In other words, a typical few weeks in Mercy's life. But it's the personal stuff, and the expertly portrayed emotional experiences that really help hold these books together and keep them from feeling stale or recycled. That, and of course the awesome adventures that Mercy's growing family continue to get pulled into. Each situation still feels unique and different from those that went before, so it remains very easy to get pulled into each new Mercy Thompson adventure and stay there to the very end. And then lament the fact that you've got at least eight months, if not a lot longer, to wait for the next exciting installment in the Mercy chronicles.

Lovely romp of a book

Okay this book brought back the laughter to mercyverse. The last book was harsh but this one while action packed had laughs to spare, or is it brownies.

Amazing

I love this series, and the sister series. They are always amazing. Sometimes the author confuses things that she said before, but they are easy to ignore.
