An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from her new boyfriend. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.

Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.

Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s ex is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.


Night Broken is the 8th installment in the Mercy Thompson series. When Adam receives a call from his ex-wife claiming to have a stalker after her and possibly killing a guy she was dating he has no choice but to offer to help. It should be easy for a pack of werewolves to scare off a human.  When the police find a large amount of mutilated bodies human as well as animal it’s looks like the wolves might be the ones the police are looking at but with Mercy’s help she proves it’s something else a different kind of magic. 

When Christy’s stalker show up at Mercy’s shop she learns the hard way that he’s not a human but something much more powerful and more dangerous than any of them expected. Thanks to having the help of Tad her old boss’s son who happens to be half fey who is able to stop the monster but he gets away. As if that’s not enough the owner of the walking stick has shown up demanding its return or else. Plus at home Christy is doing everything in her power to cause problems for Mercy coming between her and the pack. Will they survive the fire monster? Will Christy be sent packing? Will she get the walking stick from Coyote?

What else can I say about Mercy other than I love her as a character she’s my all-time favorite. She’s not your typical helpless heroine but she kicks ass plus she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty working as a mechanic. She’s one of those characters you can’t help loving because she will risk it all to keep her family and friends alive. She’s befriended all kind of supernatural beings throughout the series this one has more of her walker story with a new character as well as Coyote returned. We also have Adam who I think is a perfect fit for her, as well as his ex-wife Christy who I would have given to the monster to be done with.

Mercy Thompson books are those I don't even have to read the synopsis for anymore. I hear there is a new book coming out and I’ll drop my current book for it. Like the prior books Night Broken grabs the reader right from the start drawing you into Mercy’s world where she lives with the wolves. I finished the book in one afternoon unable to put it down my hubby even made dinner so I could finish it because I had to know how it was going to end. This installment deals with a new supernatural being/monster that we haven’t seen before but brings back Coyote as well as a new character. The characters are easy to connect with you can’t help loving they are just so real I feel like I’m there with Mercy. Every book she surprises me growing better and better as a character you could say she just gets better with age. I like that the pack is starting to respect her more and that Honey is coming around because she’s one of my favorite supporting characters. I think the author has done an amazing job creating another fantastic chapter of Mercy’s life. I honestly can’t say enough how much I love this series it’s my favorite, the one I would save in a fire, or zombie apocalypse and would cry if I lost them. Also the number one series I recommend if you love the urban fantasy. I highly suggest you check her it you won't be disappointed.
