Night Broken By Patricia Briggs
An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from her new boyfriend. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.
Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.
Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s ex is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Why do I have to read so fast? I bought this book the day it came out and then put off reading it as long as I could. I knew that even with a new baby I would read too fast and it would be over so quickly, and it was.
Loved this book! The dynamic between Mercy and Christy was great and I couldn’t wait for Mercy to put her in her place. That scene did not disappoint. I do wonder if Briggs is getting tired of nearly killing Mercy, it seems like most if not all of her books end with Mercy in a hospital bed.
As soon as I finished Night Broken I started to re-read The Alpha and Omega series (I prefer it my a smidge to the Mercy Thompson series). Since there are only three books in that series I’m already done and now I’m re-reading Mercy Thompson. I love Patricia Briggs and wish she wrote faster, or at the very least that I could find someone else that creates characters and a world so compelling.
If you have any recommendations let me know. Once I’ve finished re-reading all of Patricia Briggs I’ll be moving on to re-reading all of Ilona Andrews and then I will be super sad because I’ve yet to find authors in their genre as good.
