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

4.5 stars. More Stefan would have gotten this book a higher rating.

Adam’s ex-wife Christy is back and not only is this heifer trouble, she is bring trouble too. Apparently she gave it good to some man because now he is stalking her. He is killed her new boyfriend, and other people just to get her back. So Christy calls Adam and tells him she wants to come home, even though she knows it’s not her home anymore. Mercy is the alpha’s wife but Christy refuses to acknowledge that.

Mercy is torn because some members of the pack don’t like her and would welcome Christy back. So when Christy does something to undermine Mercy, Mercy has to be careful how she responds. She doesn’t want to come off as insecure and jealous. Besides, Christy is being stalked and should be given some slack after what she has been through. So what’s Mercy to do?

Mercy can find out who this stalker is, why and take care of the bad guy so Christy can get the hell out of her house and life. Except the bad guy turns out to be a volcano god, and is stronger than than they anticipated. Did I mention he really wants Christy bad?

Mercy handled Christy with a lot more dignity that I would have. I would have sent that bad guy an email and told him where to find ms. Martha Stewart wannabe. After all, my enemy’s enemy is my friend, right?

Stefan still has it bad for that little coyote girl…and I can’t wait for the new developments with their bond. Why can’t they break it? This is reminding me of how Bella couldn’t shake Jacob even though she loved Edward completely. I know Adam is her soulmate, but I wouldn’t mind if Adam became a sharer. My daughter told me Sharing is caring. So why can’t Stefan have her too?

Briggs is such an awesome writer. Sometimes I listen to a book and think it’s so long and I get bored. Patricia Briggs keeps it exciting, keeps the plot moving and everything is connected. It’s like she doesn’t want to waste even a word. Good stuff
