In this new instalment in the No. 1 New York Times bestselling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves . . .
My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.
And a coyote shapeshifter . . . And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.
Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn't stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae.
The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death.
But we are pack, and we have given our word. We will die to keep it.
'Patricia Briggs is an incredible writer and Silence Fallen is simply fantastic. I love hanging out with the amazing characters in this series!' Nalini Singh, New York Times bestselling author of the Psy-Changeling series
'It is always a joy to pick up a new Briggs novel, and she certainly doesn't disappoint with this latest Mercy Thompson book . . . Briggs hits another one out of the park!' RT Book Reviews
The suspenseful 11th Mercy Thompson urban fantasy opens with the Columbia Basin Pack of shape-shifters contending with a plague of zombies and the unfamiliar witch who must be creating them. When they go to their local gray witch for help, they find her family massacred and evidence that she herself has been practicing black magic. As they dig deeper into the mystery, the pack turns to the local vampire seethe for answers, leading Mercy to reunite with former allies and discover that events from the past may tie in to the zombie incursion. This story brings together a lot of seemingly unrelated plot threads from past novels in a way that feels organic and that doesn't impede the pacing of the current mystery. Fans of the series will enjoy this solid addition, but new readers might find that there's too much history to make this story work as an ingress point.
Paranormal adventure extraordinarie!!!
This is a great addition to the “Mercy Thompson” series. Peace talks between the Fae and the human government draw the attention of the Hardesty witches, a group of powerful, black magic practitioners. The werewolves via Hauptmann Security, are blackmailed into providing security for the talks and Mercy is assigned the task of providing a venue and hosting the event. The witches don’t want a united threat to their power base and set out to prevent the talks from taking place. Zombies are released, as one of the witches is a necromancer, the witches already residing in the tri-cities are targeted and deaths start mounting up. Mercy has to call in aid from frenemies, who make dubious allies at the best of times as well as old friends.
Mercy is back
Another original and edge of seat gripping story from the world of werewolves. Patricia Briggs manages to make each of her Mercy Thomson books different enough that you are completely absorbed from the first page.
The world gets more detailed in each instalment and the characters keep getting better.
Black magic threatens in this new novel, and old friends may not be as they seem.
Fabulous again- these books keep getting better and better.
Price of book???
I spotted this today and eagerly clicked on it to pre-order my copy but had to stop and pick myself up off the floor when I saw the price. $32!!! That would have to be close to the price for a hardcover. I am assuming that the publisher is setting the price. Sorry Patricia Briggs, I love your work and have purchased all your books previously, I would love to add this one to my e-library but not at this price.
Updated 23/08/18 - very happy to see price for e-book down to $11.99. I will be purchasing and am very much looking forward to reading 😊
