Patricia Briggs “has reached perfection”* in this #1 New York Times bestseller, as Mercy Thompson faces a shapeshifter’s biggest fear...
Mercy’s life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Alpha werewolf Adam Hauptman has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy’s life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more...
After a traffic accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can’t reach Adam—or anyone else in the pack. They’ve all been abducted. Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related to the political battle the werewolves have been fighting to gain acceptance from the public—and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outmatched and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.

Excellent story ! Mercedes character is becoming more interesting, minor word, as the series developed. Her relationship with Adam has some interesting developments. She is such a surprise walker! Stefan has shown a couple of twists to the story. It is hard to say anything without giving away or ruining it for the reader. Yes, you will find lots of action, humor abound but an awesome story!
While it was fun, it was dark. Not a good dark. Mordor and soul-destruction dark. Necromancy and soldiers plans to kill everyone including kids.
To me it moved across the line into unhealthy.
I must admit I was afraid to read the latest addition the Mercy Thompson series. River Marked didn't do too much for me so I was skeptical about Frost Burned, but MAN, was I wrong to doubt Briggs, I loved this book.I loved that everyone of my favorite characters was involved! Human, vampire, ware and fay. I cried like a baby when one of the characters I least expected died, felt angry, scared, I laughed, and totally fell back in love with the characters. I absolutely loved this book.
