Format: Hardcover
Mercy Thompson may be a werecoyote, but her entire life has been tied to the werewolves around her -- and now she's a part of Adam's pack.

So of course, she starts experiencing some major trouble in "Silver Borne," the fifth book about a mechanic with a knack for getting into supernatural trouble. Patricia Briggs deftly weaves together werewolf pack problems with a fae hunt for a mysterious book, while also turning her focus to Mercy's troubles with the pack, and Samuel's inner turmoil. It's a bit scattered at times, but still brilliant.

After a disastrous date with Adam, Mercy learns that Samuel has tried to kill himself -- and the only thing that saved him was his inner wolf, who is now in control of his mind and body. Whenever that happens it leads to madness and death, and the Marrok will kill his own son if he finds out. To make matters worse, she's faced with subtle magical sabotage from the wolf pack, and a TV bounty hunter shows up in town gunning for werewolves.

But Mercy's biggest problem is that the fae are trying to kill her, so they can get their hands on a mysterious book called the Silver Borne, which has been entrusted to her -- and then they capture a young friend of hers as a hostage. As she struggles to save Samuel from his hopelessness and the pack from internal strife, Mercy will have to take on a fairy queen who wants the Silver Borne for herself. But she has some allies who aren't about to just give in...

"Silver Borne" isn't quite as even as the last few Mercy Thompson books, mainly because Briggs swings between pack politics and the whole fae book disaster, spending a little too long on each for long periods (come on! There's a hostage! This is no time to infight!).

Excellent story! Samuel has problems controlling his wolf, Mercy had problems with some of the pack trying to break her and Adam up, and there are dangerous fey searching for an object of great power. Another amazing story by Briggs.

I enjoyed it from beginning to end; it has it all the fight of good versus evil with magic, werewolves, shapeshifters and romance.

Format: Hardcover
Summary: Car mechanic by day, coyote shapeshifter by night. Mate to the Alpha of the local werewolf pack and friend of vampires. You might think Mercy Thompson has enough on her plate, but apparently fate doesn't agree. All she was trying to do was return a borrowed book, and now it seems her life is on the line. The fae want the book and the secrets it holds, and they are willing to do just about anything (and kill just about anyone) to keep it from the wrong hands.

Opening Lines: "The starter complained as it turned over the old Buick's heavy engine. I felt a lot of sympathy for it since fighting outside my weight class was something I was intimately familar with."

My thoughts: This is my first foray into the Mercy Thompson series. I know it's blowing some of your minds that I can read the fifth book first. I can hear your synapses firing. But the important point is this: where have these books been all my life? Fellow book bloggers, I'm disappointed in you. Why didn't someone tell me how good this series is?

First off, Mercy kicks tush. She has muscles, she fights the bad guys, and she's a mechanic. Love to break the gender stereotypes! Don't get me wrong, she's not a she-male, but she's definitely a girl who stands out from the crowd. She's the kind of heroine I found myself rooting for from the very beginning. The cast of supporting characters is fantastic, as well. There are villains, both the kind you see coming and the kind that sneak up on you. There's a pack of werewolves that aren't thrilled about having their leader running with a coyote. And there's Mercy's roommate, Samuel, a were whose inner wolf is giving him some trouble.

The pacing in this book is a thing of beauty.
