Review – Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson #7) by Patricia Briggs

frost burnedDear Patty,

I just wanted to say “Thank you”.  When I’m feeling sad or just tired, I know that I can pull out one of your books and everything will be all right.

The Mercy Thompson series is one of my favorite pick-me-ups and you outdid yourself with Frost Burned.  The world you’ve built feels real and we’ve grown to love the characters.  I especially enjoyed the addition of someone from the Alpha & Omega series.  He should stay for a while in the Tri-Cities area.

Somehow you’ve managed to make each installment fresh and new.  Mercy was able to, once again, show why she is one of the strongest women in Urban Fantasy.  Her loyalty to the pack is undeniable.  Adam deserves that loyalty.  So do many of the other pack members except the females.  A large part of me wants you to quit allowing them to hate on her when it’s not deserved.  But, you’ve found a way to make me understand why they dislike one of my favorite fictional people.  Even though I don’t agree, I get that they are jealous and threatened.  Not in the typical ‘mean girl’ fashion (although I’m sure there is some of that) but because she’s different.  And her differences are threatening to them.  Can we just find one female other than Jesse that likes Mercy?  I think Sylvia might be a good contender.

Well, that’s all I wanted to say.  Just thank you.  And, keep writing.  It helps me stay sane and keeps me out of trouble.


P.S. I gave this book 5 stars.  You deserve it.
