Mercy Thompson just wanted to make some chocolate chip
cookies but when she's kidnapped by Iacopo Bonarata, the
Lord of Night, on her way back from the grocery store, Mercy
soon finds herself alone and very far from home. No longer
able to contact her mate or the pack, Mercy is left to fend
for herself in unfamiliar territory.
After escaping from Bonarata, who is essentially the leader
of the European vampires in Italy, Mercy quickly makes her
way to Prague only to have no clue who she can trust.
Without her mate or her pack to support her, Mercy finds
herself looking for allies in an unknown city but finding
more than a few things that go bump in the night. And in a
city as old as Prague, the things you can't see are usually
Patricia Briggs is the sole reason I fell in love with urban
fantasy books. After reading the first book in the Mercy
Thompson series, I was hooked and SILENCE FALLEN
why, even though we're ten books in now, Briggs is the best
at writing fierce, kick-ass, unapologetic heroines. Since
Adam and Mercy are separated for most of the book, Briggs
changes things up in this book and gives us two points of
views. Some chapters are told from Mercy's view point and
the others are through Adam's eyes. I love that we finally
got to dig deeper into Adam's character and see how he
thinks and his love for Mercy.
While Briggs has given us vampire conflict before, with a
new baddie that makes her previous vampire villains look
tame, I feel like she's digging deeper into their world and
showcasing some of the darker and more twisted things that
realm has to offer. I anticipate more conflict with the
vampires in the future and I can't wait to see where things
go and how Bonarata fits into future books. Briggs is an
exceptional story teller who has delivered one of the best
fantasy based heroines around. SILENCE FALLEN is an
intriguing addition to the Mercy series with an unexpected
ending that will leave some readers surprised and happy.
