Overview

In this #1 New York Times bestseller, author Patricia Briggs “has reached perfection” (The Nocturnal Library), as Mercy Thompson faces a shapeshifter’s biggest fear...
 
After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and her stepdaughter, Jesse, can’t reach Alpha werewolf Adam—or anyone else in the pack, for that matter. They’ve all been abducted.
 
Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. But she fears Adam’s disappearance may be related to the political battle the werewolves have been fighting to gain acceptance from the public—and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outmatched and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.

    This is the seventh book in the Mercedes Thompson series and to

    This is the seventh book in the Mercedes Thompson series and to be honest, I was a little hesitant to start it. Mainly because I didn't enjoy River Marked as much as the rest and I was scared that the series was starting to lose that special something that hooked me in book 1 and made me fall in love with this world that Patricia created. Thankfully my fears were unfounded and Patricia Briggs has proved to me why she deserves to be on my auto-buy author list.
    Mercy is not your typical heroine, she's not as bad-ass as most yet she's not a feminine girly girl either, she's somewhere in-between. A mechanic by trade and a Walker by birth, with the ability to shapeshift into a Coyote. The extent of her powers is, as yet, unknown although being raised by werewolves has given her an edge and insight that has helped her a lot.

    Throughout the series we have watched Mercy face seemingly insurmountable odds only for her to come out battered, bruised and occasionally bloody but on top. She has grow as a character and we finally saw her marry and settle down but with Mercy's luck you know it's not going to be as simple as living happily ever after. While on a shopping trip with her step-daughter her husband and their pack are kidnapped, on the run desperate to hunt down those who will do her family harm while protecting those who remain, the odds are once again firmly stacked against her. Trusting in allies old and new Mercy must stay strong if she wants to save those she loves.
    What follows had me on the edge of my seat,my nails are a mess and I could swear my heart almost stopped at one point. It was an action packed journey that once again enthralled me from start to finish and I can't wait to see where the journey takes us next.

    Read this in practically one sitting! I've been a fan of the Mercy Thompson series and Patricia Briggs since the very first installment, Moon Called. 
    What I love the best about this book is not just the suspense, the action, or the excellent and smart writing. It's the characters. I laugh and cry with them. 
    I feel their pain and triumphs both. Mercy never knows how to stay out of trouble, and I love her for that!

    The only thing I would point out is that this story felt longer than the previous ones. I'm not complaining on that front. I want more from Briggs. Please hurry with the next installment!

    Plot spoiler by under the cover book blog was too much. It even quoted lines from the book. That is way too much. Stop ruining the book for other readers. It is rude and inconsiderate.

    “FROST BURNED shows the reason why I love Patricia Briggs. Because her world and her words have the ability to suck you in and make you live her stories. ” ~Under the Covers

    It’s been a long time. Too long without Mercy and Adam. But Ms. Briggs is back with another great book. FROST BURNED shows the reason why I love Patricia Briggs. Because her world and her words have the ability to suck you in and make you live her stories.

    One thing this book is NOT is boring. From the very beginning, Mercy is both entertaining and getting in trouble. From accidents while shopping the Black Friday sales to teaming up with Ben and Stefan (among others) to rescue Adam and the rest of the Pack who were kidnapped by a not yet known group. The only clue that Mercy is left with is her connection to Adam through the mate-bond and Ben in wolf form, who escaped.

    There fae are living away from human society and the human authorities are not all 100% happy with supernaturals. More than one would like to bring down the mighty Adam Hauptman and his pack. FROST BURNED is never at a stand still and it shakes up the Pack and the Tri-Cities. Even and steady, Ms. Briggs managed to create a story that is both a classic Mercy Thompson novel and maybe one of the best in the series!

    I think I’ve wanted to see Mercy kick ass again and this is finally where I see that she’s comfortable in her own skin. Even though she’s not as strong as a werewolf, Mercy is not scared to go face the bad guys and fight for her Pack and family. And she is now accepted.

    We also get a few chapters from Adam’s POV and, to me, that was such a treat. Adam is truly a rugged gentleman amongst urban fantasy heroes. He doesn’t have to overdo his alphaness. He just is. And in this book, his claws come out too and we see his more predatory side. Both Adam and Mercy show that they are willing to do anything, give up anything, for the sake of the Pack. That can be scary at times.

    As Mercy and friends search for the Pack, there are many developments. We get a surprise visit from a face better known in the Alpha & Omega pages. And more than one bad guy comes to the surface. This story is full of twists and turns, it’s emotional but also funny. Unexpected alliances are made. Unexpected enemies arise. The love between Mercy and Adam is reinforced for the reader by showing yet another layer to their connection. FROST BURNED is everything I was expecting and then some.

    Favorite Quotes:

    “I don’t need to swallow you whole, I don’t need to be in your head at all times. I just need to know you’re there.”

    “You didn’t think I was going to die of old age, did you?”

    “Do they always flirt with biblical quotes?”
    “They can flirt with the periodic table or a restaurant menu. We’ve learned to live with it. Get a room, you guys.”

    Coyote never loses, Coyote told me. Because I change the rules of the games my enemies play.

    Alright, after waiting for a long time for this book, I must say

    Alright, after waiting for a long time for this book, I must say that it lived up to every one of my expectations. I loved that in this book the reader gets more of Adam and of course, more of minor characters.




    A few points I must list:




    Asil is involved.
    Not one, but TWO chapters in Adam's pov
    Mercy being stronger than ever
    Vampire's




    Overall, this book rocked. I really loved that Asil played a bigger role. When he showed up on the scene, I couldn't help but let excitement fill every part of me. Cris-crossing worlds with different characters definitively gave this book a unique twist.




    Mercy and Adam's relationship is blooming beautifully. Mercy is still her good ole self and well Adam, just gets pulled along for the ride. They have cute flirty moments as well as dangerous, rash ones. But one things that remains constant is their love and loyalty to each other. And that folks, it the icing on the cake.




    More involvement with the vampires brings more craziness to the story. I really like the way the plot played out with politics. I think Ms. Briggs brings a powerful stance when it comes to putting more depth in the plot than what the reader sees.




    In the end, I'm a very happy camper who is Very excited to read the next book. I can not wait to see what crazy adventure Mercy brings me next. Until then, I will wallow in the high that I have been given when reading this story. Frost Burned is a sensational piece of storytelling that I can never get over. Generating a mixture of romance and adventure, Frost Burned is delightful.

    Patricia Briggs brings that magical suspension of disbelief to all of her tales told, and this addition to the Mercy Thompson series
     is no exception.  Urban in the real sense, the world of Mercy Thompson is filled with everyday traffic jams, shopping malls deliciously
    mixed with wierwolves, vampires and the strangest fey imaginable smack in the middle of it.  Do yourself a favor and pick this book
    up...you'll find it very hard to put down, even for dinner!

    Loving the book so far, but LATE release on Nook or iPhone app is making it hard to actually READ it! (Boo B&N!)

    Love the Mercy Thompson series, and I have been enjoying the book a ton so far. I pre-ordered the nook version ages ago, and have been anticipating the March 5th release. However- I am having serious challenges actually getting any reading done, since the nook version is still unavailable on the online reader, iphone app and nook itself!!!

    What gives B&N?!! FAIL!!!

    I love Patricia Briggs. Every novel I've read of hers has been well written and able to more than keep my interest. I felt that this book was rushed and too short. Good read, not worth $13 on the nook

    A must read, but start at the begining

    I read all of her books and have never been disappointed! Has lots of action to keep you going and the romance, but leaves some things for your imagination so it is suitable for teens and adult. This may be the end of the series, but I hope not because I would really like to see a baby from Mercy and Adam.
