To say that there is a lot of great stuff coming out this week is an epic understatement. Anything by Nalini Singh is a given, even if it is “just” a novella collection for the Psy/Changeling series like Wild Invitation is. But then…then I saw it. Somehow I had totally forgotten that this is the week for Mercy Thompson #7 from Patricia Briggs. That is just wrong on so many levels I can’t even say. So, surprisingly to me, my pick this week is Frost Burned (forgive me Nalini).
Shapeshifter Mercy Thompson’s life is calming down, at least enough that she can focus on mundane matters like Black Friday sales. But on her return, Mercy is unable to contact her mate, Alpha Adam Hauptman, or the other members of their pack. All she 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 the most unlikely of allies: the vampire seethe.

I still have high hopes that we will get our hands on a full book of Samuel’s POV, but who knows. If the schedule holds, it will be another year before we get the next book, which should be an Alpha and Omega story. Read slooowly and make it last.
