Length: 11 hours 13 minutes
Mercy Thompson has found her voice in the werewolf pack. But when Mercy’s bond with the pack—and her mate—is broken, she’ll learn what it truly means to be alone... Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes—only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe... Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise...
My top thoughts:
I enjoyed this a lot – especially the way it switched back and forth between Mercy and Adam’s point of view. The time moves back and forth, which actually wasn’t too confusing. Instead it made things even more interesting. And Mercy warns you that it’s about to happen, so I was alert for the shifts.
I’m wondering how this book fits into the scope of the series, though. It feels like a one-off, unless the things that happened end up connecting somewhere else in the future. It was fun to be in such a different setting, for sure. And after no vampires in the last book, this more than made up for it.
It does start a little slow, but once it picks up, it keeps moving. And the ending is quite the bang! Oh and there’s quite a twist. That’s all I’ll say 🙂
