Fantasy Urban

Mercy Thompson Hauptmann has had an eventful life -- a flighty mother, raised by the Marrok (the grand alpha of all werewolves) and marrying the Alpha werewolf of Tri-Cities. Things always seem to smooth out for a little respite then she is in trouble again. Now she has been attacked and taken from Tri-Cities with her captors planning to use her as a weapon. They underestimate Mercy in her coyote form and she manages to escape, but she finds herself without help and lost in Europe. With the SILENCE FALLEN between her, Adam and the pack, she must find a way to contact them, but in the meantime she has to find help. All she has to do is figure out friend from foe.

All I can say about this addition of author Patricia Briggs "Mercy Thompson" series is ... amazing! The set up takes us out of Tri-Cities and puts Mercy back to being the lone wolf, okay, so she is a coyote but I think you know what I mean, from the days before her marriage. She has a bond with her husband that allows them to "speak" to each other and that bond has been broken throwing her, Adam and the pack into a frenzy of worry. She has to depend on her instincts while struggling to find a way to contact her husband and their pack or even the vampires and witches she knows.

Having never been to Europe, I felt that Ms. Briggs did an amazing job of making readers feel as if they really were there with Mercy. The descriptions brought it all to life in a vibrant and clear way. I did find a couple of pages that might have been a bit too descriptive and didn't really add anything, but didn't hurt except take the reader away from the main topic.

I also loved the different POV chapters, it always helps to know what the others are doing while Mercy is trying to escape and survive. This is something that I have found other authors doing and completely enjoy it -- I love to know what the other party is doing, thinking and feeling. Helps push the story along and give readers a deeper understanding of all the missing parts as they come together.

If you love the Mercy Thompson series, ghosts, vampires, a strong heroine who isn't going to back down despite feeling outnumbered and a wolf who will move mountains to get his mate back then SILENCE FALLEN will hit the mark.

SUMMARY

In the #1 New York Times bestselling Mercy Thompson novels, the coyote shapeshifter 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...
