REVIEW: Silver Borne – A Mercy Thompson series novel # 5 by Patricia Briggs

Silver Borne has a ton of infrastructure drama.  Why would a werewolf want the Alpha of the pack mating with a coyote?

Jealous werewolves.  Conspiring backstabbers.  Alpha challenges.  Houses blowing to pieces.  Fae searching for an object that will take powers away from other fae.    And poor, poor Sam.

“Fine,” he said.  “Ouch, cat.  Don’t you know I could eat you in a single bite?  You wouldn’t even-ouch-even leave a tail sticking out.” – Sam talking to Mercy’s cat 🙂

This is a very busy book.  Silver Borne is packed with action that rushes from one scene to the next.  This is a very hard review to write.  Hard not to avoid spoilers …

Mercy loves Adam, the Alpha werewolf in the Tri-Cities.    But with that love, comes a price.  Her pack mates are making life in an uproar.  She doesn’t understand why she does certain things.  I mean .. why would she throw a bowling ball at a toddler?  The deception and manipulation in this book is interesting and intriguing to say the least.

With everything going on, Mercy is forced to lie to Adam about Sam.  I can’t go into much more than that 🙂

I will bottom line it for you.  This book pulls together questions from other books.  Mates are found.  Liars are beaten.  Friends are rescued.  Suicidal monsters are saved.  The ending .. well that is an entirely different moment altogether.

I recommend this book to mature adults.  Monsters eating other monsters .. slurp slurp .. So this book has moderate violence in it *grin* .. Very short descriptive sexual content .. bummer, right?  Please read the other books first.  Moon Called is the first book in the Mercy Thompson series.

Line of the book:

Where does a werewolf sleep?  Anywhere he wants to.

~Happy reading!
