My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.
And a coyote shapeshifter.
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 lived 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 treat 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.
Zombies, Werewolves and Witches, OH MY!
I have been with Mercy Thompson now Hauptmann since the first book and because the books don’t come as fast as I’d like, I want all the stories all the time, I love finding myself back into this world of werewolves, Fae, Goblins,Witches and Vampires again. This is the 11th book in the series and unlike other series where you can read them as standalone, this series is very much not like that. You will most def have to know what happened in the previous books or you would be lost. Heck with two years since the last one having been read, I was lost!
Mercy is once again In the thick of everything unwillingly. After she proclaimed the CB pack would basically protect the city from all the supernatural beings, she and her merry bunch of wolves find themselves battling a goblin. Then things go crazy from there all within a day.
Murder, Miniature zombie goats, zombie werewolves and voicemail messages to her suddenly absent mate Adam is all classic Mercy.
When a new Evil scares even the baddest of the bad and is threatening to take over the Tri-Cities; Mercy, the wolves, and human and fae alike are shook! And Mercy mixes up her old team with some new elements to try and defeat it.
Witches have always been an element in the MT books, just not front and center like this one and while I liked the storyline, I felt the book was too short and things were paced well, but i was not expecting to turn the page and then BOOM, here is the ending. The writing, as always was great and even the new characters were fleshed out, but for me, not enough was on the main storyline.
