Coyote shape-changer Mercy Thompson has endured a lot to get to her happy ending of a loving marriage to alpha werewolf Adam Hauptman, but all it takes is one manipulative ex-wife to wreck Mercy's peace. When Christy, Adam's former spouse, calls begging for help and sanctuary from a vicious thug who beat her, it arouses the pack's protective instincts, but having Christy in the house is not going to be easy for Mercy. Things get complicated when it is discovered that Christy's bad date is actually an enraged and powerful entity that will stop at nothing to get her back.
VERDICT This is one of the best series in urban fantasy, with a heroine who continues to grow and yet always remains true to herself. The pages fly by with action, emotion, and even some satisfying new information about Mercy's relationship with trickster god Coyote, her father.
