Length: 10 hours and 2 minutes

Description: Mercy Thompson returns in the seventh novel in the number-one New York Times best-selling 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: Mercy and Jesse are in a car accident on Black Friday and can't contact Adam - or anyone else in the Pack. When Mercy realizes that the Pack has been abducted, it is up to her to gather any allies remaining to try to rescue all of them.

Allies are rather thin on the ground because the fae, including Zee, have retreated to their reservation and hidden the reservation. Bran can't help from Montana but he does send The Moor - a very, very scary old werewolf - to help out.

Mercy also had the help of Zee's half-fae son Tad who has a whole lot more magical power than she know he had and much more than the other fae realize he has.

Mercy also contacts Stefan even though their relationship has been strained for quite a while.

It is up to Mercy and her allies to try to figure out what is going on and to rescue Adam and the Pack before they can be used to further a political agenda that has no up-side for the wolves. The plot also involves the Vampires and an attempt to take over Marsilia's seethe.

This was an engaging and fast-paced episode in the Mercy Thompson series.

I bought this one. You can buy your copy here.
