Book: Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson #7) by Patricia Briggs
Release Date: March 5th, 2013
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Description: Shapeshifter Mercy Thompson's life is calming down, at least enough that she can focus on mundane matters like Black Friday sales. But on her return, Mercy is unable to contact her mate, Alpha Adam Hauptman, or the other members of their pack. All she knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam's disappearance may be related - and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from the most unlikely of allies: the vampire seethe.
Why I'm Waiting: I'll be the first to admit, I didn't love the last book in this series. In fact, I might have to say that Brigg's other series (Alpha & Omega) is starting to worm its my past the Mercy Thompson books in my mind. However, I do still love them. And I'm excited for Frost Burned and cannot wait to get my hands on it. I always love some Mercy / Adam time. Plus, it sounds like Stefan might make more of an impact in Frost Burned than he has in the previous books. Which makes me happy. I do love the werewolves, but I've missed Mercy's favorite mystery-machine-driving vampire.
