Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs

Frost Burned (Mercedes Thompson, #7)
Good Reads Summary
Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs

Mercy Thompson returns in the seventh novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Mercy Thompson’s life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman—the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack—has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy’s life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more…

After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can’t reach Adam—or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They’ve all been abducted.

Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related—and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.

My Thoughts
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

The longer a series gets, the harder it is to avoid repetition... all the good things there are to say about the first Mercy books hold true for this one: She still takes action, she still is protective and she still has that tendency to say the funny yet inappropriate when terrified. It's always fun to get the good you're expecting.

Then there's the 'you think it's over, but you'd be wrong' thing that I love about these books. It's the same that's left me exhausted because like the other books, this just wouldnt quit. With one thing resolved, another issue'd surface.. Fun, like a rollercoaster: up, down then up again.

Of course, there's a little part of me that wanted more out of Adam's POV. Simply because I didnt really feel like I was hearing anything new from him. Told from Mercy's perspective the guy is made of everything awesome with a side of scary (but scary isn't always a bad thing) but with the bit told by him, I felt little of personality was there.. it could have been anyone! I wanted scary alpha who's determined to do right by his pack and yeah that was there; I just wanted more. Maybe should stick to Mercy's POV.. I mean, why mess with what works?
