Mercy Thompson #5: Silver Borne by Patricia RiggsParanormal Romance
This is a series that just gets better and better with each book!
Mercy and Adam are finally mated together, but their relationship is in danger of cooling off. Mercy is not fitting all that well into Adam's pack. Most of the pack is uneasy with a lowly coyote being their new female leader. Someone is apparently upset enough to try and kill Mercy over it. My favorite (and most romantic) part was when Adam fights (in a to-the-death) match for Mercy's honor. Adam=Wow! ?And, now that Mercy has officially rejected Sam in favor of Adam, Sam is suicidal and quickly losing himself to his wolf side.
Mercy has been asked by the friend of a friend to guard a book. Not just any old library book, either. A book powerful enough, literally, to kill for. When the owner of the book turns up dead, what is Mercy supposed to do with the book?
One question...where is the vampire Stefan? It's like Riggs just pushed him to the side because he didn't work out. I loved Stefan! I want a Stefan series. It just feels like a loose end that needs tied up. Perhaps in the next book?
This one is full of all the action, adventure, and romance of the other books. What I really love about the character of Mercy is that she isn't a static character. She learns from her previous mistakes and changes, and yet she still makes new mistakes. She never reaches that ho-hum perfection phase that some other lead characters get. I can't wait for the next one!
