Summary

The sixth novel in the international number one best-selling Mercy Thompson series - the major urban fantasy hit of the decade

Mercy Thompson: Mechanic, Shapeshifter, Fighter.

Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. And she's never known any others of her kind. Until now. 

As Mercy comes to terms with this new information, an evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River. Something deadly is coming, facts are thin on the ground and Mercy feels ill at ease. However, her father's people may know more. To have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need all the resources the shifters can offer. Or death will be the least of their worries.

good book, but a little slow compared to others

Decent addition to the Mercy series, but took a while to get into it compared to others. Not sure if the absence of some of the favourite characters from other books contributed and the sometimes sickly interactions between Mercy and Adam. That said, still enjoyed it and improved in the last 5-6 chapters.

Very long winded

It was a good story but should have been half as long. A whole book on one battle? Too much.
