In this powerful entry in the #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.

My Review

I loved this book!  I have to admit that I am a huge fan of all the books set in Mercy Thompson's world.  Every time I get my hands on a new Mercy Thompson book, I feel like I have been given the most wonderful gift.  These stories really are gifts and I cherish each one.  As you may have guessed, I went into this book with really high expectations.  This book was even better than I could have hoped.  This book allowed me to escape my life for just a little while and I had a fantastic time with it.

Mercy seems to somehow attract trouble.  Actually, her declaration a couple of books back that the wolves would protect their territory is causing most of the trouble.  Early in this book, Mercy is called on to deal with some zombie goats and I wondered what the heck was going on.  Seriously, zombie goats?  I thought I had seen it all but I was obviously wrong.  It was so much fun to watch Mercy try to figure out what was really going on.

I loved the direction this installment took.  Witches are incredibly interesting to me anyway but witches in Mercy's world were even better.  We learned a lot of things about several of the characters that have played pivotal roles in the series for a long time.  All of the things that were revealed were eye-opening and some left me questioning everything that I thought I knew about the characters.

I love the role that Mercy and Adam's relationship plays in this series.  It is really nice to see an established couple that is in it for the long haul.  I think that Mercy and Adam's relationship only gets stronger with each book.  I love the way that they trust each other completely and always have each other's backs.  There were plenty of great moments between the pair in this story which I found touching.

I would highly recommend this book to others.  This is the eleventh book in the Mercy Thompson series which is a series that really should be read in order since there are a lot of things carried over from previous installments.  This was a highly entertaining story filled with mystery, action, excitement, great characters, and even a few zombie goats.  I enjoyed this one so much I pre-ordered the audiobook so I can experience the story all over again in the future.

I received a digital review copy of this book from Berkley Publishing Group via NetGalley.
