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... FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
My second go around listening to Silence Fallen had me struggling to remember any details. The problem I have with listening to audiobooks vs. reading. I don’t absorb the details like I do when I read, so I honestly didn’t recall much if anything in this story, which was good in a way because it was a fresh story for me. I will tell everyone who reads/listen to this is to pay attention to Matt Smith. I went back after listening to this and re-listened to Adam’s chapters to get any hints at all of who Matt Smith is. If you know, it is subtly there. Patricia Briggs was very sneaky. This is the first book that Briggs wrote with Adam’s POV, and I enjoyed how his chapters got a separate narrator with George Newbern. It gave the audiobook an entirely new feel and flair compared to all the others. I enjoyed it. Once again, Mercy is way over her head, and this time she is so far from home she is cut off from her pack and allies to help her. Our coyote finds chaos wherever she goes and little mayhem and destruction along the way. Silence Fallen is a fantastic addition to Mercy Thompson Universe, I loved getting a refresher, the second time is the charm, 5 Boundless Stars.
