I've learned from Brigg's previous Mercy Thompson books, so I cleared the decks and sat down to read. No disappointments here -- open the book and you're off on a wild adventure as Mercy tried to prove the innocence of her mentor Zee against the wishes of Zee, Uncle Mike, the fae, and the Gray Lords. All this while hoping the vampires don't realize she's killed two of them and trying to decide whether she's more in love with Samuel or Adam -- while her indecision weakens the pack. How much tension and blame can one mechanic with a history degree and the ability to change into a coyote take? From official release/information:
From back of book: Mechanic Mercy Thompson can shift her shape--but not her loyalty. When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder and left to rot behind bars by his own kind, it's up to Mercy to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not.
Mercy's loyalty is under pressure from other directions, too. Werewolves are not known for their patience, and if Mercy can't decide between the two she cares for, Samuel and Adam may make the choice for her...
