"Can the fragile peace remain when another foe intervenes?"

Mercy Thompson's declaration on the bridge that day has
changed the balance of things. Now, the pack is embroiled in
the politics between the US government and the Gray Lords,
and Mercy's husband and Pack Alpha, Adam Hauptman, has his
hands full trying to maintain the peace. Unfortunately,
things are about to heat up as another foe has arrived in town.
I think I fell in love just a little with the whole idea of
miniature zombie goats! As Mary Jo points out in STORM
CURSED, they just sound cute even with the word zombie in
it. STORM CURSED has all the elements we love in a Mercy
Thompson book. We've got humor (hence the miniature
zombie goats), lots of butt-kicking action, political
intrigues with the various species of supernaturals, and the
camaraderie we expect from the much-beloved characters.
We're learning about a lot of new powers and the witches
play a very large role in STORM CURSED.
STORM CURSED is the eleventh book in the phenomenal Mercy
Thompson series. I would strongly encourage new
readers to start with the first book, MOON
CALLED, and read through the entire series in
chronological order as Patricia Briggs has been carefully
crafting both her world and her characters over the course
of the series. Besides, the Mercy
Thompson series is one of the best urban fantasy
series out there so why wouldn't you want to enjoy each and
Patricia Briggs throws some interesting curveballs at us in
STORM CURSED. Patricia Briggs is not letting her world
stagnate but is instead expanding and broadening the
horizons with each new entry into the series and oh wow,
does STORM CURSED ever deliver! No spoilers here but I have
questions on how things are going to proceed after the
events of this book, and it's going to be so hard to wait
on the next book to see where Patricia Briggs takes us next!
If you love urban fantasy, then Patricia Briggs and the Mercy
Thompson series are a must read for you!
My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car
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 hadnâ€™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.
