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.
4.5 (FIVE) BOUNDLESS STARS
Mercy and her pack of werewolves are finding out what it means to protect their territory. As talks of peace are trying to take place between the humans and the Gray Lords, a Coven of Black Witches has invaded the Columbia Basin pack’s territory bring with them death, destruction, and zombies. I love listening to Lorelei King’s rendition of Mercy Thompson. She just brings all of the characters to life. The only issue I have with listening to audiobooks vs. reading is that I don’t absorb everything the same way. That’s because I am usually doing something else while listening to the book. It makes it very convenient but also a bit of a bummer because sometimes I feel like I miss the details I need. This is a series that I could go back and read again from the beginning. It’s that good. Storm Cursed is an excellent addition to the series, its full of danger, action, magic and a whole lot of Mercy.
