Mercy Thompsonâ€™s life has undergone a seismic change.
Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptmanâ€”the charismatic Alpha of
the local werewolf packâ€”has made her a stepmother to his
daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of
blissful normalcy to Mercyâ€™s life. But on the edges of
humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day
can turn into so much moreâ€¦
After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and
Jesse canâ€™t reach Adamâ€”or anyone else in the pack for that
matter. Theyâ€™ve all been abducted.
Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is
angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political
battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears
Adamâ€™s disappearance may be relatedâ€”and that he and the pack
are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may
be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no
matter how unlikely.
