Coyote shape-shifter Mercy Thompson is attacked and abducted in her home territory. Fighting off a crazed werewolf, she manages to escape, only to find herself alone in the heart of Europe, without money, without clothing, and on the run from the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world.
Unable to contact her pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, but first she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy needs to be at 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....

The story is as always excellent but I didn't like having two narrators. For me Lorelei King on her own would have been better.
I am a Wife, a Mum and a Grandma. I am also strong willed and wilfil at times. I have worked all my life and drempt for wining the lottery
The Mercy Thompson story continues at a pace. This is book 10 in the series and is as strong as ever.
Patricia's writing has produced strong characterisation with new individuals being introduced with fully developed personalities, some good and some not so good.
As often happens the storyline starts with Mercy happy and content and then her world falls to pieces. this time she ends up in another country, at the start having to rely on her own abilities.
Will definitely reread and I would highly recommend this book but I would, also say start at the beginning of this series, all the books are brilliant.
Very easy to listen and follow the plot which is important to me as I listen doing my day to day activities.
Another good storyline by Patricia Briggs
It is quite amazing the trouble Mercy manages to get into. As he is her mate and rushes to help her when she gets herself into said trouble it is not unusual to find Adam neck deep in trouble beside her and this time is no different apart from the fact that apart from pack Adam takes with him on his rescue attempt a couple of vampires and a couple of Golems.
This is as enjoyable as the first Mercy Thompson book . I had to listen to it in just a couple of days . ( when ever I could )
I'm not convinced that having male narrator for Adam was an improvement as I've always enjoyed lorelei kings narration for all characters so that's why the performance was less than 5 * ( George Newburn just seemed a little lacking ...)
As I've said in previous reviews this is a good series but NOT all books are available on Audible UK . This is very frustrating. So at the moment to enjoy the whole series you'll have to read some if you are u k based ( I have e mailed Audible U.K but no joy yet)
A nice addition to the Mercy series. The male narrator was good but I felt he was unnecessary.
