A new book by Patricia Briggs is always an anticipated event for me. I love the world that Ms. Briggs has created. I love Mercy and Adam and all the other characters that surround Mercy. I love Stefan, the Scooby Doo loving vampire. I liked this book. I didn't love it. For me, the pacing was off. It was just a little bit slow and not the same caliber as the previous book. I still love this author and will be reading the next book in the series.
