Description

In this powerful entry in the number-one New York Times best-selling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves....

My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.

And a coyote shape-shifter.

And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.

Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn’t stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who live in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and interact with the fae.

The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming, and her name is Death.

But we are pack, and we have given our word. 

We will die to keep it.

Entertaining

I have read and enjoyed all the Mercy Thompson series and the offshoot series. The stories are quick moving and full of adventure and action.

This one was not up to par

I have “listened” to Mercy for the past 10? years. This one lacked the urgency that one gets with this series...i am really hoping it a prelude to the next one.

Scariest one yet

I greatly enjoy how Patricia can combine faerie tales and the worst possible acts together and still keep it light and funny. This story is anchored in something that you could watch on CSI but the magic takes it to another level - again. Vulnerability and achilles heels all over the place make for GREAT story telling. And Loreli’s voice brings it to your ears with the skill that only she possesses. This duo is dynamite. Just like Adam and Mercy!

Good read

liked it but wasnt as consuming as her other stories of Mercy.
Too much re-inforcement to how Mercy does the things she does.
Could have been a novella type story!!

Patricia Briggs succeeds where so many flounder!

Ms. Briggs' characters meet life's challenges and their own supernatural circumstance with perseverance, strength, vulnerability and resolve in a relatable yet enviable way. She's avoided allowing them to become stuck in behaviours that make readers want to yell at them for and kept them interesting and growing in depth over the series.

Ms. King's narrative talents are always a joy to listen to and with the richness of the unfolding world Particia Briggs is creating for us in her stories, we are left wanting more at the end of each book.

Now I get to wait all over again...

Having finished this entire book the day of its release, I find myself elated and disappointed all at the same time; elated because it was a solid addition to one of my favourite series and disappointed because now I have to wait all over again for the next book!
I will say that there were some plot points that I felt could have been resolved a bit more completely and more answers given, but without spoiling anything, I think the big bad in this story is bigger and badder than we see in this installment and more opportunities will come to fill in the blanks...
So overall, I give this book full marks and prepare to bite my nails until Patricia Briggs releases the next masterpiece :)

Love Mercy stories

As always, Briggs does an excellent job in plotting, characters, editing, consistency - so many points that make her work top quality.
In this book, it feels like Mercy has taken a step back in the story, most especially in the climactic fight scene. She’s standing there like she’s in a daze or fugue, describing the spellcasting and the dragon??? And, when Wolfe is caught in a spell, Briggs suddenly has Mercy dancing, collecting, and severing the ribbons to the zombies. It’s off.
I’m going to wait a bit and relisten to see if it’s me or the story.
Lorelei King is one of my favorite narrators and I believe she does a wonderful job for the book and Mercy Thompson series.

Witches, Werewolves and Warfare

Wow, this book. Non stop action.
We finally seem to be in a place where most of the relationships seem to be ironed out well enough to focus the majority of the book on the plot and the overall world that Briggs has created.

I’ll be honest, ever since the “Christie” book debacle, I’ve been somewhat struggling with the Mercy Thompson series. Don’t get me wrong, I was still enjoying the books, just somehow felt that they weren’t as captivating as the previous ones.

But oh my, Storm Cursed blew my reservations right out of the water. This book is clever and funny and intriguing and simply so very alive. I loved every second of it and almost ‘read’ it in one go..

Lorelei King is great, as always. She has perfected the voices for each and every one of our beloved characters. Hands down, one of my favorite female narrators.

Get. This. Book. Now.
And be prepared to be unable to stop, once you started ;)

Awesome overall, but disappointing climax.

I loved all of this book except the way Mercy was used in the climatic event.

While I may understand that what was done was done to raise tension, it made Mercy seem less intelligent than I have come to expect of her. Less battle ready. Just less Mercy. The clues that she also got, so it's not a case of reader gets more info, were glaringly obvious. that it took so long for her to use them felt wrong and felt an insult to her "intelligence."

To make it worse, you showed her problem-solving skills earlier.

Please don't make her this slow again.

I quit reading a different authors book series when, after six books, the protagonist continued to do the same stupid thing.

Yes! Mercy is back!!!

I cruised through this book at Mach 5. I ate it up without chewing. That's how much I liked it. So glad that Mercy's stories are just getting better and better.

what happened?

I've loved this series for years, and have given 5 star ratings in the past. This book however I must have nodded off and missed what happened because I was waiting for the story to get started and it ended. What did I miss? Having waited excitedly for this book I must say it came up short.

thoroughly disappointed

I love the Mercy series from the beginning. but as we get further and further along I'm just tired of her whining about Stephan even though all he has ever done is help her, and now the author has decided in this and her alpha and omega series to start chopping out old enjoyable characters. My wife says this is "growth" I say I don't need to read any more.

However I do love the narrator still.

Losing A Few Steps<br />

Aside from character dropping, which is common with urban fantasy writers who manage to create and add so many new characters each book, the story seemed like it was rushed into ending. Leaving the past history plot twist flapping in the wind was made up for by bringing Zee and Tad back to the shop, but the lack of coverage to the Fae and Government talks speaks of a rushed story. If you're going to introduce a main theme to the story, at least cover it with more than a few sentences at the end of the final chapter?

The Cutlass introduction, while fun, seemed to make Mercy look incompetent and undisciplined... I doubt she would just leave the weapon laying anywhere that often when she's supposedly a Mechanic that cares for her tools...

Also, why bring up Honey and Peter if you aren't going to offer some closure to the sword being left to rust in Adam and Mercy's closet? Might as well had said the sword gets snapped in half so no one would think there would be a closure mentioned.

Finally, a Jetta? Really?! You took her from making the lemons of Volkswagen run and drive, which was really cool, to skipping out on The Beetle?! I understand avoiding ties to Jim Butcher's universe, but that was so out of character I almost deleted the book...

Disappointing

I love Mercy and all the pack. But this book is just blah. It goes too fast, it doesn’t build the world. It’s frustrating because it becomes confusing at times. Just not up to par with the rest of the series.
