Summary

I am Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman. My only 'superpowers' are that I turn into a 35-pound coyote and fix Volkswagens. But I have friends in odd places and a pack of werewolves at my back. It looks like I'm going to need them.

Centuries ago, the fae dwelt in Underhill. When they were cast out, they left behind their great castles, troves of magical artefacts...and their prisoners. Without the fae to mind them, those creatures roamed freely through Underhill wreaking havoc. Only the deadliest survived.

Now one of those prisoners has escaped. It can look like any creature it chooses and if it bites you, it controls you. It lives for chaos and destruction and can make you do anything - even kill the person you love the most. Now it is here, in the Tri-Cities. In my territory. 

It won't - can't - remain. Not if I have anything to say about it.

Mercy Thompson returns in another thrilling instalment from number one New York Times best-selling author Patricia Briggs.

Amazing

Every time I listen to/read another Mercy book I am more amazed by Patricia Briggs and her story telling abilities. Every book is so different then the last yet somehow connect to the last in such a way that you don’t need to have read any other book to be able to just jump into a a series midway. This book had so many bad guys all wanting something different. All in all 5 stars just were not enough but were all I could give.

Great listen.

Smoke Bitten is a contemplative book, I enjoyed diving back into Mercy’s universe, resolving some things and exploring others.

The ending gives a happy surprise and confirmation that all is well for now...
