Book Review: 2 Treasure Boxes
The Mercedes Thompson Series, Book 5
Publisher: Penguin Audio (March 30, 2010), Listening Length: 9 hour(s) and 8 min. (304 pages), ASIN: B003EN3K2U

Mercy receives an odd message from Phin, a part fae, bookstore owner who lent her an interesting book on the fae. This message soon leads to events which spiral down into big trouble for Mercy. Plus there are a number of other interesting developments concerning the werewolves and Mercedes love life.

Silver Borne is the fifth of six books in The Mercedes Thompson Series. The series revolves around Mercedes (Mercy) Thompson, a Native American shapeshifter who can assume the body of a coyote. She is also a strong, independent woman who makes her living as a mechanic. Patricia Brigg has written several other series which fall into Paranormal Romance, High Fantasy, and Fantasy.  She has written numerous short stories.  This series is considered Urban Fantasy or Contemporary Fantasy.  The books are told in a first person narrative with Mercy’s voice and thoughts as she lives her life.

I am enjoying this book, but I do not think it was as good as the previous books, I thought the beginning was a bit slow.  However, there was plenty going on once the story did going.  There was a fair bit about Samuel, which I did not really think added much, but it was still interesting.  I find Mercy and Adam’s relationship to be fascinating and I am always curious to see what is going to happen next.

This is a standalone story, but still part of a larger plot. I like the characters and I like the direction the overall story is heading. I recommend this book and this is a good series in the Urban Fantasy landscape.   If you enjoy books with werewolves, shapeshifters, fae, vampires and witches then you will enjoy this book.

      I see that you enjoy audio books, I am not sure if you are aware, but the library offers a great audio book selection. This is where I got Silver Borne and all the other Patricia Briggs novels. Thanks for the comment and I hope you enjoy the book.
