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.
Mercedes Thompson-Hauptman is a badass!
I know it's been said before and it will continuously be said about our favorite coyote shifter. Mercy, the most underestimated yet the most powerful supernatural in Patricia Briggs' universe not by strength, but by connection, finds herself neck deep in vampire politics in the middle of Eastern Europe.
I thought I've read everything Pbriggs could possibly make Mercy and Adam endure and obviously I'm wrong. SILENCE FALLEN is not as emotionally charged or even heartbreaking than other previous installments, instead it's one of those nail-biting-white-knuckled suspense action adventures full of close calls and near misses.
And perhaps what I find most interesting in SILENCE FALLEN is the storytelling style. It's not exactly told in a linear fashion, the timelines overlap as Mercy and Adam alternate in sharing their side of the story. PBriggs will definitely command and demand your attention here lest you miss something or worse, get confused with the way the plot unfolds.
I'm also not sure if PBriggs is hinting at something, I'd like to think that she is because I want this universe to keep expanding so we keep reading; but is Daryll going to have his own pack and/or spin-off? I sure hope so! Oh! and my boyfriend, Bran The Marrok Cornick made quite an interesting appearance on this one. I also love the fanboy references. *wink wink*
If you're a fan of this series, don't you dare miss SILENCE FALLEN. If you've lost interest, I encourage you to give this one a go, it just might renew your enthusiasm for it.
