Night Broken (Hardcover)
The most recent installment of the “Mercy
Thompson” series by Patricia Briggs, Night Broken, may be her best work
yet, which could explain why it’s getting some strange reviews.
Adam’s ex-wife, Christy, calls him, pleading
for sanctuary. Her latest lover has become a stalker, and may have
killed her ex-boyfriend. He’s really scary, and Adam can’t refuse to
protect the mother of his daughter. However, this puts Mercy in a tight
spot. Christy is really good at getting people to feel sorry for her,
and several pack members would love to see her back by Adam’s side, even
though Christy’s fully human. And apparantly, Christy wouldn’t mind
retaking her old place either…
Add to that tension the fact that Christy’s
stalker is, in fact, more deadly than anyone could have imagined, and
that one of the ancient Fae wants the walking stick that Mercy gave
away, and he’s not inclined to be understanding about her inability to
immediately produce it, and you have the makings of classic Briggs.
I suspect some of the people who didn’t
enjoy Night Broken as much as I did want their conflicts to be black and
white, and the dance that Mercy and Christy do is finely nuanced and
does not have an easy or straightforward resolution, much like life. And
besides being Adam’s wife, Mercy’s now the mate of the Alpha; she’s got
extra pressure on her to do the right thing, even when that’s not
obvious or easy. And Mercy’s need to protect those weaker than her is a
Every step of the way, Patricia Briggs has
taken the difficult path of allowing us to see the results of choices,
some good, some bad, some not really choices at all. And the demands of
family are always tricky to navigate. Still, if anyone can do it,
Coyote’s daughter is the one who will be up for the challenge!
#1 "New York Times" bestselling author Patricia Briggs's Mercy Thompson series has been hailed as "one of the best" ("Fiction Vixen"). Now, Mercy must deal with an unwanted guest--one that brings a threat unlike anything she's ever known.
An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam's ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from a stalker. Adam isn't the kind of man to turn away a person in need--and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam's house, Mercy can't shake the feeling that something about the situation isn't right.
Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she's willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam's pack against Mercy.
Mercy isn't about to step down without a fight, but there's a more dangerous threat circling. Christy's stalker is more than a bad man--in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.
