Hey everyone. How was the North American folks’ long weekend? I was actually off work, and spent the entire, glorious time…cleaning. Not living the dream, but it had to be done (and I am happy afterwards). But as a reward for my good behavior, there is a cover to post. Storm Cursed is the next Mercy Thompson book from Patricia Briggs, and it has a release date of March 5th. Just a side note, but that is totally a different Mercy model, am I right?
In this powerful entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves…
My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.
And a coyote shapeshifter.
And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.
Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn’t stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae.
The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death.
But we are pack, and we have given our word.
We will die to keep it.
Amazon.uk a while back had listed an untitled Moira spin-off book, but that disappeared without a trace. Has anyone heard any word of this, since it has been rumored for a couple of years now? I even went back and re-read their novella to get a refresher, and I very much liked their story.
