Re: MARCH FEATURE #1: Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs

Up until a few years ago, this was arguably one of my favorite ongoing paranormal fantasy series – but the last few installments haven't "wowed" me. They have seemed rushed and have an unfinished quality to them. But, hey, I love the charcter of Mercy Thompson and I'm going to give this series another shot!

 

I've been hearing that this is a pivotal novel so we shall see....

Re: MARCH FEATURE #1: Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs

Mine came today too!!  I also got my new InCryptid book, so I'm in heaven.  I have to finish "Cold Days" though, before I can dive in.  

 

I don't know Paul.  I think this series kind of has a slow burn feeling to it that I really enjoy.  It feels very lived in, if that makes sense and I appreciate that.  I'm excited to dive back into Mercy's world and get reacquainted with her and her pack.

Re: MARCH FEATURE #1: Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs

Finished the book on Saturday night...could not put it down the last few chapters.  Really loved the book.  :-)  Is interesting to know how deep the vampire/werewolf/fae hatred goes and I suspect a bit of a war coming up?  Anyone else read and want to discuss? 

 

Cheers!

Re: MARCH FEATURE #1: Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs

I was a huge fan of this book.  It may be my favorite Mercy novel since "Iron Kissed."  I don't want to dive too deep and get into spoiler territory, but I will say that there is a scene in the book that recalls what happened to Mercy in "Iron Kissed."  I really have to commend Patty for the thoughtful way that she deals with Mercy being a survivor of sexual abuse.  It is very realistic and informed.  I have a friend who is a survivor as well who read the series at my urging (with knowledge of what happens) and she was very impressed as well.  

 

I agree with SciFi that it was more fast paced than the last couple of installments.  There was time for some quieter moments, but I felt like it was pretty much non stop action.  I'm excited to hear what others thought, especially Paul.

An excellent addition to the series.  For those who listen to audiobooks, the narrator Lorelei King is fantastic.  She also reads the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones.
