Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs
The tension is rising between the fae and the rest of the world. Their machinations are coming to a head and it seems Mercy and the ones she holds dear are caught in the middle.
A human child emerges from fairy, to protect this child Mercy and her werewolf family end up giving the child their protection, against Bran’s wishes. But the power this child hold is something some fae will do anything to possess even if it means unleashing devastation and destroy some of their treasured own. Will the good of the many outweigh the life of one?
Mercy’s character and her relationship with Adam and the pack continue to grow and develop. Just when you think you can’t love this cast more, Patricia Briggs makes you think again.
Each and every installment in the Mercy Thompson series provides an imaginative, fresh and action intense installment. Fire Touched continues this trait of excellence in brilliant story telling. If you couldn’t tell, I loved this book and this series.
Fire Touched is truly an urban fantasy series that must be written with the magical golden quill that I highly recommend.
Precaution: Reading this novel has been known to cause serve book hangover syndrome.
