On an emergency run to the store to pick up cookie-making supplies, Mercy Thompson Hauptman is taken captive after her truck is rammed. When her husband, Adam, alpha of the Columbia Basin pack, feels her pain through their mate bond, he rushes to the scene, but she has been whisked away, and he can no longer sense her. The Lord of Night, the master vampire ruling most of Europe, believes that Mercy is the key to the delicate balance of power that has been achieved in the region. While not physically powerful, Mercy is no one's victim, and part of her strength lies in her many allies. Since she discovered that she is the daughter of native trickster spirit Coyote, Mercy (Fire Touched) better understands why her life seems to attract drama, but that doesn't mean she finds it easy to get out of the dangerous situations fate seems to reserve just for her.
VERDICT The vampires of Briggs's world are one of the biggest secrets still being kept from humanity, and it makes a nice change for series fans to delve deeper into their dark realm.
