Our favorite coyote shapeshifter Mercy and her mate
werewolf Adam returns with the action packed FIRE TOUCHED.
Tensions are high in this offering as the werewolves are
called on to help with a troll who is destroying everything
and everyone on a bridge. In the aftermath they find
themselves faced with a dilemma in the form of a human
child who has lived many years in the Underhill.
Do they protect this child, who has a lot to learn about
being human and being careful with his ability to use
fire? Or do they turn him back over to the Fae and perhaps
stop the threat of war. The choices ... tick off the
Marrok (head of all werewolves) or the Fae?
FIRE TOUCHED is an edgy, action packed read that takes us
all back to Mercy, Adam and the Tri-Cities pack. If you are
fan of Patricia Briggs's Mercy Thompson novels you
bounced right back into the drama surrounding the lives and
loves of the pack members.
I always love spirited Mercy and quiet, strong Adam and a
number of the pack members as they add a variety of
interesting personalities to the pack. There has been one
thing that has bothered me in past books since Mercy and
Adam got married, and maybe even before, some of the pack
members have been needling Mercy, treating her as if she
didn't belong, and the Alpha never said a word about this
treatment. You will find out why and you will also find out
what is finally said and done about this situation. Despite
the tension in this story there were quite a number of fun
and funny moments and I really loved the "nudge." Sorry
that one is too good to explain, you will have to read FIRE
TOUCHED to find out what I mean. This goes on my TRA shelf,
and I can't wait to get my hands on the next exciting read
by Ms. Briggs.
Tensions between the fae and humans are coming to a head.
And when coyote shapeshifter Mercy and her Alpha werewolf
mate, Adam, are called upon to stop a rampaging troll, they
find themselves with something that could be used to make
the fae back down and forestall out-and-out war: a human
child stolen long ago by the fae.
Defying the most powerful werewolf in the country, the
humans, and the fae, Mercy, Adam, and their pack choose to
protect the boy no matter what the cost. But who will
protect them from a boy who is fire touched?
