PNR Review: Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson, Book 7) [Hardcover]

I've finished reading "Frost Burned" the 7th book in her Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs.

Product Description

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.

My Review:

This book opens with Mercy and Jesse shopping on Black Friday when Mercy receives a mysterious text from Bran.  She thinks this is strange so she starts calling everyone in the pack but she only gets everyone's voice mail.  Through her mate bond with Adam she knows he is alive but in pain and is quite angry.  The kidnappers have drugged them using silver so they can't heal fast and they want Adam to kill someone which will have recuperation.

First of all she needs to get Jesse to safety so she drops her off at Gabriel's mom's house then she is on a mission to save Adam and his pack of werewolves.  She can't reach Bran or Samuel so she reaches out to old friends a new ally to help her.

This book had lots of tense moments which had me on the edge of my seat and it was great to see Mercy working by herself again instead of relying on Adam or the pack.


Thanks Penguin Canada for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
