Series: Mercy Thompson #10
Rating: 5 Stars
Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe...
Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise...
It’s so different from the other Mercy novels that it makes it stand out so much more to me. Granted, I can’t tell you why it’s different because this was such an early review copy, but this book is just simply one of the best of the series.
Briggs has always had this ability to perfectly capture the moments whether they be funny, serious, action-packed, or even devastating. Silence Fallen is no different. From the very first page, she had me instantly craving more until the point that I went to work with just 30 minutes of sleep. I simply couldn’t put it down.
One of the best parts of this book was how much we were able to see of Adam and his plight with the newest big bad in the crazy world of Mercy. While this series is mostly about Mercy, it was refreshing to get more from his point of view this time around. The separation between he and his lovely wife is trying at best and it was great to see how he handled the stress of it all.
Like I said, I can’t go into full details just quite yet, but this book is the beginning of what I can only assume is a game-changing plot twist for the series. I am on pins and needles waiting for the next installment.
