Book Review: Frost Burned

           Today's review is on Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs

I really hate it when I anxiously wait for the next book in a series that I absolutely love to come out only to find that I'm so busy working that it takes me forever to read it. This is exactly what happened with Frost Burned.

This 7th installment of the Mercy Thompson; or should I say Hauptman, continues to show the fantastic writing style of Ms. Briggs. Each character; at least the good guys, begins to feel like members of your own family as you watch them face danger and excitement as well as tremendous love. It's no wonder that this is one of my all time FAVORITE book series.

Mercy's life has finally started to calm down since marrying Adam, the Alpha of the local werewolf pack. Or so she thought. While on a shopping trip with Jesse, her stepdaughter, Mercy begins to feel a bit on edge but doesn't really know what is causing it. And when Jesse brings up the subject of Mercy and her dad having a baby...well, let's just say that she becomes a bit frazzled causing her to get into a car accident that totals her car.

Mercy first calls her mate, but he doesn't answer. She then tries calling other members of the pack with the same results. Worried, Mercy reaches out to Adam through the mating bond and finds that he is angry and hurt. Unknown to her and Jesse, the pack has been kidnapped. And those that have abducted them are out to get not only her, but Jesse as well.

With a little help from her friends, Mercy must keep Jesse safe, rescue Adam and the pack, and try to stay alive. Our little Coyote has a lot on her plate.

Filled with action as well as a few twists, Frost Burned is another exciting installment in this amazing series. I'm now anxiously waiting for the next one.

Book Description: via Amazon

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.
