Review: Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs

Silver Borne (Mercedes Thompson, #5) Silver Borne (Mercedes Thompson, #5) by Patricia Briggs

Genre: Urban Fantasy
Series: Mercy Thompson, Book #5
Hardcover: 352 pages
Date Read: April 3rd

My rating:

When mechanic and shape shifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book she'd previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down.

It seems the book contains secret knowledge-and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands. And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side-leaving Mercy to cover for him, lest his own father declare Sam's life forfeit.

All in all, Mercy has had better days. And if she isn't careful, she might not have many more to live...

My Thoughts:
Whenever I pick up a Mercy book, I get lost in her world. I forget how much I love Briggs books until I open that book and fall in love all over again. I really like her Alpha and Omega series as well, but her original Mercy Thompson series can't be beat!

This time around, Mercy receives a phone call about a book she borrowed from her friend Phin. But it wasn't just any book, it was old and powerful that revels the Faes secrets. Phin, the owner of the book, has vanished, his bookstore is closed down and Mercy is up to her neck in problems.

Besides being confused of what the book is all about, Mercy is still recovering from the events that occurred two books ago. Her bond with Adam and his Pack doesn't seen to be going as planned. She's in danger and doesn't know where it's coming from, the Fae, her pack? Someone wants her gone, and maybe more that just moving away. Above all that she's having some confidence issues with Adam. It's going to be a rough week or two for Mercy.

I think in Silver Borne we see how much Mercy has affected the people around her.
Silver Borne is face paced and filled with twists and turns that kept me engaged the entire story. There is always something new and intriguing in each Mercy Thompson novel. I cannot wait for the next installment!

I agree.. the Mercy series is one of a kind.

I really loved the inside to Pack life in this book but I was a bit ticky about Mercy taking Adam's daughter into... well, you know. I'd hate to give a spoiler here!

I do love the series and I am hoping to read more- soon!

Great review! I'm glad you posted the link on mine or I may not have found it :)

I totally forget how much I love the Mercy books until I pick up and read one. Then I fall head first and just... I don't put it down until it is done. I finished over a week ago and I'm still thinking about Adam! LOL
