Description: When mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book she'd previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down. It seems the book contains secret knowledge-and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands. And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side-leaving Mercy to cover for him, lest his own father declare Sam's life forfeit. All in all, Mercy has had better days. And if she isn't careful, she might not have many more to live...

I Give This Book 4 Stars!

I thought I would prefer the books that tend to favor the vampires.  But, I discovered I like Iron Kissed more than Blood Bound.  The same goes for this one over Bone Crossed.   The Fae continue you to amaze me.  There's always something new to learn.  You wouldn't think they could be the most dangerous mythical creatures, but I'm beginning to change my mind.  While the stories with the vampires tend to scare me more than normal, the one's with the Fae seem to test your intelligence. They want to know if you've been paying attention.   I love how Mercy doesn't fit all the typical rules.  It seems no one knows quite how she will react or how things will effect her (including Mercy herself).  I really loved watching her relationship with Adam and the pack grow.  I was not surprised to discover the deep rooted animosity towards her within the pack.  I also wasn't surprised to watch Sam struggle with his wolf.  I've actually been waiting for it to come for a couple books now (especially since Mercy chose Adam).  Overall, I loved it and can't wait for the next in the series!
