Mercy, Mercy, Mercy... You just can't seem to keep out of trouble, can you? I have really enjoyed this series, but I am glad to have reached a good stopping point. I've spent the last week and a half reading through the Mercedes Thompson series and becoming familiar with its many characters and monsters. This series is a great blend of all things that go bump in the night with its main focus on the werewolves.
In this volume, we are exposed a lot more to the rules and science of the pack. As Mercy becomes closer to the pack she realizes that not all of its members may welcome her with open arms. Her bond and relationship with Adam is really focused on in the volume. Rather than the plot being problem based, it is more relationship driven. We also get a more in-depth look at the Fae and how some of their different classes function. Honestly, this has to be the most informational book out of the bunch, making me think Briggs is fueling us up for bigger things to come in the next volume, River Marked, which is due to come out March 1st, 2011. All in all a good read, but much less action than previous installments.
