I’ve been a Mercy Thompson fan for a while. I’ve read some of the Alpha & Omega series, but I don’t like it nearly as much as the Mercy series. I am finding with this series and others (Sookie, I’m thinking of you), that as the number of installments increase, the stories loose their uniqueness. The plots repeat, and there become too many characters and past plot lines. This is the seventh book in the series, and here’s what I thought…
Half Cannonball completed!
This is the seventh book in the Mercy Thompson series, and this review will probably contain spoilers for stuff that happened in earlier books. It’s also not a good place to start reading the books. You want to start with Moon Called. The spin off series, starting with Cry Wolf, is also very good.
Mercedes “Mercy” Thompson Hauptman is out Black Friday shopping with her stepdaughter Jesse when she suddenly has a panic attack and crashes into the car ahead of her. It turns out that the reason she freaked out is because her husband, the alpha of the local werewolf pack, and all the werewolves of the pack have been subdued and kidnapped by shady, possibly government operatives. Only one of the wolves escaped, and he’s in pretty bad shape. Realising that both she and Jesse are prime targets, Mercy has to act quickly to get them to safety and try to figure out how to save her husband and the rest of the pack. More on my blog.
