In the #1 New York Times bestselling Mercy Thompson novels, the coyote shapeshifter has found her voice in the werewolf pack. But when Mercy’s bond with the pack—and her mate—is broken, she’ll learn what it truly means to be alone... Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes—only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe... Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise...
4.5 Boundless Stars
Let me start off with a huge over site that I found on all audio book sites, when looking this title up George Newbern isn’t listed as a narrator. I loved the dual narration with both King and Newbern. They were both fantastic! I don’t understand why he isn’t being given credit on the purchasing sites. Over site maybe? He is listed on the front cover of the audiobook, so that is something.
I loved that we are finally getting things from Adam’s POV. After all this time (10 books) we finally get a peek inside Adam’s mind. I loved that! I hope this is a format that Briggs continues because it just added that little something extra to the story.
Brigs knows how to weave and exciting intricate tall. The only thing I am still scratching my head on is the entire Bran thing. I want to go back and re-listen to the story knowing what I now know. Although a few things that happen make more sense, nope I’m not giving it away.
One thing I did notice that irked on me a bit was Mercy tends to repeat herself, a lot. She is constantly telling the reader that she was raised in the Marrok’s pack. I don’t think I picked up on that when reading the series but it’s weird the different things your mind focus on when you are listening to an audiobook.
Mercy again finds herself in trouble, not matter if it’s at home or across the globe where the coyote goes chaos follows. I am giving Silence Fallen 4.5 Boundless Starts, this continues to be a series that I really love. I may have to go read other tales in the Merch Thompson universe.
