    25 stars SpoilersI really didn't like this installment mainly because I pretty much hated every character especially Adam and Christy The only ones I didn't mind were Jesse Tad and Warren Even Mercy irritated me with her overly understanding Mary Sue attitude towards Adam and his ex What's what Adam's ex wife Christy has a crazy psycho stalker after her Mercy and co have to protect her Also Mercy has to look for her sort of dad Coyote so he can give her back a magical walking stick that the fae are demanding On top of that Mercy has to deal with the fact that Christy wants Adam back I couldn't stand all the bitchy female characters literally every secondary female character hated Mercy the only ones that didn't were Adam's daughter and Honey to a certain extent It just wasn't believable to me that Mercy was constantly surrounded by mean jealous petty women I found it rather unrealistic Sure there are a lot of awful women but there are just as much men who are awful But like most YAUFPNR books heroines tend to spend most of their time with complete fucking cows Which is bullshit in real life women usually spend time with supportive nice women rather than all the not so nice women All these books make out like women are all bitches apart from a few speshul snowflakes It's absurd Yes Mercy gets on with her mum and half sisters But she rarely mentions them and doesn't seem particularly close to them all of them are or less non characters Whereas Mercy can't stop banging on about Bran Coyote and all the other wonderful male influences in her life Apparently relationships only matter and are only worth taking about if it involves a male If I'm meant to believe that Mercy has strong meaningful relationships with other female characters bar Adam's daughter then it needs to be shown and time needs to spent on themI'm not impressed with the portrayal of women in the series in general 90% of the ones that have significant roles are nasty and unpleasant Maybe they're just written that way to make Mercy stand out and seem heroine like Whatever the reason it's irritating and disheartening to read a heroine who only really comes in contact with vile women Would it really be that unrealistic to let her have a few decent female friends that she regularly interacts with? A uick summary of Mercy's relationship with malefemale charactersThe prominent secondary male characters in the series Mercy gets along withhas meaningful relationships with Adam Samuel Bran Ben Warren Kyle Tad Zee Coyote Gary Tony and DarrylThe prominent secondary female characters in the series Mercy gets along withhas meaningful relationships with Jesse her mum who's hardly ever mentioned and Honey sort ofSo yea Mercy has four times as many good male friendsrelationships than she has female That's just not rightNow for the Adam HateThe many reasons why I now hate Adam1 Adam let his ex wife stay in his and Mercy's house What sort of husband does that to their new wife? Adam could have insisted that Christy stay somewhere else especially when he saw how it was affecting Mercy 2 Adam pays for ALL of Christy's expenses What a joke what wife would be cool with her husband paying for their ex wife's rentcarphone billinsurance?3 Adam happily let Christy play wife and take over Mercy's house4 Adam said NOTHING whenever Christy was trying to humiliate and push Mercy around Why didn't he say something? Why didn't he stand by Mercy? Instead he let her struggle and suirm He didn't need to fight her battles but he could have at least shown some support 5 Adam giving Christy his mobile phone when she'd already stopped Mercy from talking to him once before Why did he let her have it? To play games? He couldn't have told her to borrow someone else's or use a computer? Really?6 Adam exchanging tender looks and memories with Christy in front of Mercy and the pack How HUMILIATING for Mercy to listen to Adam banging on about the good old times with his ex wife Ugh he had all these special memories with Christy that he'll never forget she'll always be a part of him Of course Mercy will only ever be about Adam7 Adam telling his ex wife that she can keep her make up in hisMercy's shared bathroom Really? Why didn't he tell her to make some room in the other two bathrooms in the house? She's not that much of a master manipulator that he couldn't simply tell her to use another bathroom instead of traipsing through hisMercy's bedroom to get to their shared bathroom It's not like it would have been unreasonable for him to tell his ex wife that And then when Mercy rightly lets Adam know she's not happy he leaves it to her to sort out the make upbathroom situation that he created8 The fact he kept his house the exact way Christy decorated and arranged it His house was Christy's than Mercy's it was full of Christy's memories and things There was NOTHING of Mercy there What wife would want to live in a house that was completely decorated by their husband's ex??9 Not helping Mercy with trying to find Coyotethe walking stick whilst she was running around helping him and his ex wife Seriously he could have done to help her she was stressed out about it and he was interested in his ex wife's problem Why is it that Mercy goes above and beyond to help Adam and his pack but in comparison hethey rarely do the same for her? 10 When Adam found out Christy had risked Mercy's life by not telling everyone that her stalker was than human he didn't shout at her for putting Mercy in danger No he was just hurt that Christy hadn't confided in him Ugh11 Adam letting the majority of his pack treat Mercy like shit She lives her life surrounded by those bastards and he does nothing when they treat her with disgust hatred and disdain It's one thing letting Mercy stand up for herself but it's another sitting back and doing nothing whilst the pack treat Mercy like crap day in and day out Does he like to see Mercy treated like shit? He's their alpha he has their respect and loyalty he could easily tell them to back off 12 Adam ever loving a horrid person like Christy It doesn't say much about his love for Mercy when he could fall madly in love with a vile cow like Christy There's no way Mercy would treat Adam the way he treated her in this She would never make him feel that small and rubbish by letting an ex stay in their home and then letting them act like the man of the house She wouldn't have let anyone undermine Adam let alone a jealous ex she also wouldn't have gotten all cosy with an ex in front of him either and she wouldn't still act like someone else's wife when she was married to Adam It's a shame Adam doesn't respect Mercy as much as she does himMore ranty repetitive thoughts WTF Adam pays for Christy's car flat bills and other expenses? Ugh I don't care that Adam's an alpha and feels like he has to look after her He shouldn't be paying for everything as if they were still married She's forty fucking years old she can look after herself Adam doesn't need to bankroll her FFS Adam acted like Christy was still his bloody wife My opinion of Adam went way down in this installment The way he was with Christy pissed me off he let her get away with all sorts got all cosy and nostalgic with her made Mercy feel insecure and in many ways still acted like a husband to Christy Also the fact that he once deeply loved a fucker of a woman like Christy makes me think much less of him There was nothing good about the manipulative immature lying selfish cow — so either Adam was too dumb to see Christy for what she really was or he loved her despite her being an awful person Either way Adam didn't come out looking good Also it was made perfectly clear in this that if Christy had never left Adam he would never have looked twice at Mercy he would have stayed happily married to Christy and wouldn't have wanted Mercy even a little bit So yea that doesn't say much about his feelings for Mercy I LOATHED how Adam let Christy take over his and Mercy house how he let Christy manipulate everyone how loving and caring he was around Christy and how he sat back and did nothing whilst Christy was trying to get one over on Mercy He should have supported Mercy and put Christy in her place whenever she tried to make Mercy feel like crap — but he didn't he just went along with Christy's games and then later when he was alone with Mercy he'd thank her for being a doormat He rarely stuck up for her when the pack was present he just left Mercy to be judged and bitched at All Adam did in this was prove how unworthy he was of Mercy Did Christy really have to stay in Adam's house? It was appalling that he expected Mercy to be cool about his ex wife staying in her house and taking over her home He could have easily asked her to stay with Warren or another wolf Yea Christy would be pissed but so what? At least it'd show that he respected and cared about Mercy's feelings than Christy's Also why would he want Christy to stay with them when she had a psycho chasing her and her living in his house could put his daughter and mate in danger? Ugh it was all about Christy her feelings and her safety Mercy came last Adam could have protected Christy without her living in his home but the wanker wanted her happy and comfortable and couldn't have cared less how Mercy was feeling The dick It was so irritating that Adam left Mercy to deal with Christy's mind games he never once put his foot down with Christy He could have told her to back off he's a bloody alpha and Christy was no longer his wife But no he let Christy do whatever she wanted and then casually watched as Mercy was bombarded with bitchiness from those around her What sort of husband does that to their wife? Why did Christy keep answering Adam's mobile? Why did he let her? It was fucked up Especially when Mercy had already tried to reach him and Christy basically told her to piss off Adam knew that Mercy couldn't get a hold of him when Christy had his phone after that he should have made sure he kept his phone with him instead of letting his petty jealous ex have it Honestly it just made me think that Adam liked Christy playing wifey with him and that he didn't mind Mercy feeling like crap or Mercy not being able to get a hold of him when she was in danger Who was this pathetic excuse for a man? Fans of the series probably think Adam was positively swoony or perfect or even perfectly flawed but to me he turned into a lame wanker bastard douche loser I no longer like his relationship with Mercy He's lost a LOT of points for even loving Christy to begin with what did he ever see in her? She had no redeemable ualities It's clear that that he'll always love Christy and have something with her that he'll never have with Mercy Christy will always be the woman he shared his first marriage first pregnancy and first baby with — anything with Mercy can't compare to those joyful and powerful moments Even if Mercy has his kids one day it wouldn't feel special because he's already experienced it all before with ChristyJesse Anything with Mercy would just be a repeat of that The pack were a bunch of utter dicks they treated Mercy like rubbish even though she'd done than enough to warrant their loyalty and respect In the past she did plenty to prove her worth yet she still had to practically beg and plead for their approval What have they ever done to prove their worth to her? Nothing I hated that Adam's ex wife was portrayed as such a bitch It felt like the only reason she was like that was so that Mercy could look good in comparison Why must so many ex wivesgirlfriends of heroes be vile cows that hate the heroine and want the hero back? It's so cliched and unimaginative Why couldn't Christy be a decent woman who was civil and respectful towards Mercy and her marriage to Adam? Also if she hadn't been written as such a bitch then at least it would have made some sense why Adam fell for her and married her Writing her as a weak manipulative slag just made Adam look like less of a man for ever loving her So Mercy is long lived but not immortal like Adam That means that once she dies Adam will eventually move on and find love elsewhere I mean if he could love a woman like Christy then I'm sure he'll have no trouble falling for another woman after Mercy's death It's weird that the series is called Mercy Thompson when she's now known as Mercy Haumpton She really should have kept her own name I liked the addition of Gary his banter was Coyote was great The ending was enjoyable and uite action packed All in all I wasn't impressed The lack of good secondary female characters annoyed me Mercy spending most of her time around men annoyed me Christy being an irritating cliche annoyed me most of the characters being insufferable annoyed me but worst of all Adam annoyed me he's now ruined for me He was a rubbish mate who was still all about his ex he didn't deserve Mercy This book just left me thinking that Adam's love for Mercy was nothing special at all how could it be when he'd also once been deeply in love with a horrible horrible woman like Christy

    45 stars read for me It was so good being back in Mercy Thompson world You can always count on Patty Briggs to deliver uality story imo and Night Broken was no exceptionBare plot Christy Adam's ex wife is running from a nasty stalker so she decided to seek protection with Adam and his Pack Unfortunately for Mercy stalker in uestion is dangerous supernatural who can end them all and Christy just won't take the hint that there is a new Alpha's Mate in Columbia Basin pack When blurb for this book was released my main concern was how is Patty going to handle whole Christy thing I had two issues with thisFirst is tied to series Adam and Mercy are one of my favorite couple exactly for the reason that they don't go through relationship dramas or misunderstandings that can be resolved with one honest conversation We read them get together becoming pair and running a Pack They are solidI love that Second thing is general I just don't like love triangles and storylines with ex gfs getting back because it's rarely done well not to appear as a between filler meant to drag series and because at one point I am probably going to want to smack hero for doing something extremely stupid tied to his ex Well fear not None of this happened I had a wish that some of wolves EAT Christy every two pages so to say that Mercy had a tough time is an understatement Christy was such a unlikable character She is one of those women who will tell you venomous words using their sweetest voice She was whiny selfish and manipulative in the worst way possible You have Jesse who loves her mother and Adam who has a mile long protective streak and she was not above using that and emotionally blackmail entire Pack Now the thing I liked the most was Adam He never strayed from Mercy never lost connection with her or had trustconversation issues In his heart and mind there is only one his Mate And because of that Christy was never a real problem for me For exampleview spoiler when Christy called for help wanting to come he didn't say yes right away he was thinking and looking at Mercy giving her the say in whole thing as well and Mercy knowing that she is Jesse's mother and thinking about Pack said get her to come hide spoiler

    I forgot to update this reread This is one of the many covers that I love I loved this one as much as the others with one exceptionCHRISTY Yes the stupid ex wife to Adam I can't stand her I would not be able to be as nice as Mercy I would knock her arse out I hope before this series ever ends that she does just that SPOILER ISHThis time the stupid woman meets some man while she is out gambling and sleeps with him because he takes notice of her It ends up he's some fire god that she awakens and has to come crawling back to the pack and live with Mercy and Adam until they can help her Of course she tries to take over I'm sorry I would not be the good little coyote I would take her down and let her know how it is we will help you but you will do as I say PERIOD Ok I'm done ranting about Christy So they have to figure out how to fight this demon jerk Also they pick up a new wolf traveling through he's a submissive so he's not much trouble A Gray Lord wants Mercy to get the staff back from Coyote You have to read the books to know about the staff It's a bunch of crazy going on as usual I don't like what happened to the dogs They should have loaded them up and taken all of them with them Just saying We also get a cameo with Stefen I love him A new character is introduced although I don't think he is coming back Anyway I loved the book as usual ❤️

    This is an example of urban fantasy at it's finest I hate to say it but I've given up on a lot of the series in the adult UF genre that I used to love Why?Well it seems that after a few kick ass books they turn into paranormal romanceor worse Take the Anita Blake series for instance The first few books had a badass heroine that rocked and then the series transitioned into shitty eroticaThat's not what I signed up forI wanted magic and mayhem Not elongated nipples and ten foot werewolf erections On a side note why does every PNR seem to include at least one scene with a vampire biting his lover down there? Call me crazy but that one always makes me cringe How does someone gnawing on your nether regions constitute anything other than a serious ouchie?Sorry I'm veering way off track hereI've been reading these books for about 6 years now and I still get all giggly when a new one comes out Briggs doesn't churn 'em out like a machine and it shows in her writing Mercy is still Mercy She doesn't suddenly develop supernatural orgasm powers or need to sleep with the entire pack in order to maintain some sort of cosmic balanceShe doesn't overestimate herself she doesn't doesn't get angsty and overdramatic and she doesn't overreact to situations that are out of anyone's controlShe's still cool still tough and still goodShe's hands down one of the best UF characters out there todayAnd then there's the rest of the charactersEach of them have a distinct personality and each of them react to situations accordingly It's really an amazing world that Briggs has created And if you haven't given it a chance yet I'd highly recommend that you remedy that 'cause you honestly can't do better than the Mercy Thompson seriesSoIn Night Broken you get an introduction to the ex wife and a lava monsterYou'd think the volcano god would be the scariest but you'd be wrong And while one of them might me able to melt your skin the other one will make you want to peel your own skin off In fact Christy might turn out to be the best nemesis of the entire series Forget the bloodthirsty vampires or scary powerful fae This chick will bake you into a corner and then cry prettily while the pack tears you apart on her behalfShe's like the mega evil version of Martha Stewart shudderYou also get to meet Mercy's newold half brother and find out a few secrets about Mercy's mysterious heritage Her elusive father Coyote pops up just in time to wreak a little havocOr maybe he saves the day? The jury is still out on that oneZee is only mentioned off page but his son Tad certainly has a few surprises up his sleeve I wouldn't be shocked if the next book centers around him in some wayStefan also makes a short appearance but it counts for uite an interesting twist in Mercy's story He's definitely not going anywhere anytime soonIn the end it comes down to Mercy's natural coyote instinct to survive and her willingness to think outside of the box that saves the dayBut I really wouldn't expect anything less of her PSThe last line of the book? Brilliant It's not a cliffhanger but it leaves you desperate for Highly Recommended

    375 stars This installation of the Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series is noteworthy for two things Adam's ex wife Christy comes back into town begging for protection from a stalker but also trying to steal Adam's attention and the werewolf pack's sympathy and loyalty away from Mercy because that's just how Christy rolls And an ancient volcano god from the far off tropical Canary Islands I don't want to give away too much of the plot but fiery Presa Canario dogs I wasn't fond of the whole ex wife subplot Part of it was that I'm tired of the plotline where Mercy is still trying to win over the loyalty of so many members of the pack who dislike having a coyote shifter as part of the werewolf pack Human mates okay; coyote shifters not okay Why??? And although Adam is a good guy the amount of attention and deference he gave Christy really rankled And Christy herself just ugh I can't stand self absorbed pity party people like her But I can't say she wasn't a well drawn character and the plotlines all made sense and came together well in the endThe volcano god plot was pretty solid and a new character shows up Mercy's half brother that Coyote sure gets around who's a great addition to the story It took a couple of books to hit its stride but I really love the Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series

    4 45 stars It’s been a few years since I’ve read a Mercy Thompson book When the 9th book came out and my husband read it I was reminded I still needed to read book 8 I started this one on audio and as always love the narrator that voices Mercy Even though it had been a while since I’ve been in Mercy’s world it all came back to me as I started reading I’ve been reading these books for a decade now and these characters are special to me Mercy will forever be one of my favorite heroines With each book she shows how kick ass she is and how big her heart is There are a few things going on in Night Broken and we meet a few new people LOVED Gary He was a definite highlight of the book Then there is Christy YES one of the ONLY books where my name is used and the character is crazy annoying and a straight up bitch at times ;p Figures I could have used a lot LESS Christy She brought the drama into the story in ways than one There is drama in the pack due to Christy and drama she brings with her in the form of a not so human male things get crazy but as always Mercy stays strong and uses that fight she has within her I love Mercy and I LOVE her with Adam Their relationship is strong and even when things or people get in the middle of it their love is still unwavering I adore them together ”Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman if I have not said it you should know that you brought joy into my life when I thought there was no joy left in the world” This is probably my favorite UFpara series One I’d highly recommend I definitely won’t be waiting years to read the next this time ;

    This book is fantastic I loved every minute every word and every page The set up promises an emotionally tense situation for the pack Mercy and Adam This could have been done poorly but it wasn't Briggs writes the history and the complexity of Adam's ex combing back to town so well Have you been missing Samuel? Stefan? Wulfe? Tad? The crew is back Full review to come closer to release date but damn good stuffA today at Badass Book Reviews

    Re read for the 3rd time June 7th 2020Yep Mercy still deserves a medal for not strangling Christy The fight scenes were pretty exciting The parts with Coyote and Gary Laughingdog were interesting and enlightening Mercy is definitely than just a half human who can turn in to a coyote Powers and advantages still being revealed Re read March 30th 2017I think I hated Christy even the 2nd time around Mercy deserves a medal for not killing herAs usual with the Mercy Thompson series I was glued to the pages I detested Christy Adam's ex wife and master manipulator and I dreaded her bit in the story The saving grace was that Adam staunchly supported Mercy and they were a united front I do wonder why the heck he let Christy answer his phone so many times though The action and plot were fast paced and distracted me from Christy enough to enjoy the story Mercy shined the whole way through but I wouldn't have minded if she was a tad petty and mean to the ex bitch but that would've given power to Christy's attempts to undermine Mercy's standing with both Adam and the pack I marvel at Mercy's people skills and ability to think things through Love that she's a total badass tooThis series is just pure awesomesauce

    March 2018 Reread Buddy read with Sarah and Erica I've realized that despite hating some particular people in this book this is one of my absolute favorites in the seriesFebruary 2017 Re read I still absolutely despise ChristyFebruary 2016 Re read Buddy read with SarahIt could be said prior to this book that all of Mercy's problems have nearly always been aimed directly at her Moon Called excepted That's not the case here This problem heads straight for Christy Adam's ex wife Adam being who he is can't deny protection And I love that about him honestly I do But I absolutely hate Christy in this book and a good number of the PackMost of the books prior to this we could see movement in the overall world and politics between the supernatural beings in it Not so much here There are glimpses moments where we realize and find out that stuff is still moving along and maybe not to the best of places but for the most part this book focuses on Adam and Mercy's Pack That doesn't mean it's slow though I think back to my experience reading it and I realize that Mercy spends a lot of time trying to get away from Christy but that doesn't mean there's a lot of downtime We're moving from one revelation to the next learning about some characters with a few surprising me hugely along the wayI don't want to rant any like I did when I first finished this book but I still do hope that Christy goes away and never returns She's the most selfish self absorbed bitchy woman I also really hope that someone puts the fucking Pack in their place The lack of respect that they show Mercy is absolutely fucking ridiculous Time and time again she's put her neck out on the line for them Time and time again she's never left them hanging or in danger She's never backed down from a fight even when she didn't think she could win And how do they repay her? With betrayal and snide comments Fuck that I am so pissed at most of them There are a couple of notable exceptions and I couldn't love these four I want to gather them all into my arms and give them huge hugs for being decent caring human beingsor werewolvesI found the mystery pretty interesting not because there was a huge mystery I don't think but because it was so different And there are some downright amazing things that happen because of it I can't wait to see the conseuences of some of the choices that were made hereI think that most fans of the series will hate the main aspect of the book Christy trying to worm her way back into Adam's and the pack's life and I can't blame them I hate it too A lot But what I can say is that Adam makes it bearable Those four other characters gave me hope to hold onto Also Mercy's a better person than I I'm not sure I would have taken Christy's jabs with such grace I get why she did because of Jesse but man That took some serious strengthI love this book Now if Christy would just die I'd be a happy woman Or I at least hope the Pack gets an awesome set down in the next book Fire Touchedand that Christy goes back to Eugene 8 December 2014 227 on Kindle16 October 2014 364 on KindleReview to come I need to process The I think about the things happening here the impressed I am This was a episodic book than some of them in that there was the 'Big Bad' and only small movements done to the overall world arc I personally loved that but I can see how it might bother others There's a lot of tension in this book a lot of division for a good portion of it But I like the way things are heading view spoilerAlthough I swear to the gods if Christy moves back to the Tri Cities I'm going to freak the hell out I don't think she will because I think she finally realized what a using bitch she was and still is but I will freak out if it happens I hate her I hate the discord she sows wherever she goes I hate how she blames everyone else for her choices and problems I hate that she can effortlessly manipulate people to doing what she wants and that she uses it for nasty reasons hide spoiler

    25 stars SpoilersI really didn't like this installment mainly because I pretty much hated every character especially Adam and Christy The only ones I didn't mind were Jesse Tad and Warren Even Mercy irritated me with her overly understanding Mary Sue attitude towards Adam and his ex What's what Adam's ex wife Christy has a crazy psycho stalker after her Mercy and co have to protect her Also Mercy has to look for her sort of dad Coyote so he can give her back a magical walking stick that the fae are demanding On top of that Mercy has to deal with the fact that Christy wants Adam back I couldn't stand all the bitchy female characters literally every secondary female character hated Mercy the only ones that didn't were Adam's daughter and Honey to a certain extent It just wasn't believable to me that Mercy was constantly surrounded by mean jealous petty women I found it rather unrealistic Sure there are a lot of awful women but there are just as much men who are awful But like most YAUFPNR books heroines tend to spend most of their time with complete fucking cows Which is bullshit in real life women usually spend time with supportive nice women rather than all the not so nice women All these books make out like women are all bitches apart from a few speshul snowflakes It's absurd Yes Mercy gets on with her mum and half sisters But she rarely mentions them and doesn't seem particularly close to them all of them are or less non characters Whereas Mercy can't stop banging on about Bran Coyote and all the other wonderful male influences in her life Apparently relationships only matter and are only worth taking about if it involves a male If I'm meant to believe that Mercy has strong meaningful relationships with other female characters bar Adam's daughter then it needs to be shown and time needs to spent on themI'm not impressed with the portrayal of women in the series in general 90% of the ones that have significant roles are nasty and unpleasant Maybe they're just written that way to make Mercy stand out and seem heroine like Whatever the reason it's irritating and disheartening to read a heroine who only really comes in contact with vile women Would it really be that unrealistic to let her have a few decent female friends that she regularly interacts with? A uick summary of Mercy's relationship with malefemale charactersThe prominent secondary male characters in the series Mercy gets along withhas meaningful relationships with Adam Samuel Bran Ben Warren Kyle Tad Zee Coyote Gary Tony and DarrylThe prominent secondary female characters in the series Mercy gets along withhas meaningful relationships with Jesse her mum who's hardly ever mentioned and Honey sort ofSo yea Mercy has four times as many good male friendsrelationships than she has female That's just not rightNow for the Adam HateThe many reasons why I now hate Adam1 Adam let his ex wife stay in his and Mercy's house What sort of husband does that to their new wife? Adam could have insisted that Christy stay somewhere else especially when he saw how it was affecting Mercy 2 Adam pays for ALL of Christy's expenses What a joke what wife would be cool with her husband paying for their ex wife's rentcarphone billinsurance?3 Adam happily let Christy play wife and take over Mercy's house4 Adam said NOTHING whenever Christy was trying to humiliate and push Mercy around Why didn't he say something? Why didn't he stand by Mercy? Instead he let her struggle and suirm He didn't need to fight her battles but he could have at least shown some support 5 Adam giving Christy his mobile phone when she'd already stopped Mercy from talking to him once before Why did he let her have it? To play games? He couldn't have told her to borrow someone else's or use a computer? Really?6 Adam exchanging tender looks and memories with Christy in front of Mercy and the pack How HUMILIATING for Mercy to listen to Adam banging on about the good old times with his ex wife Ugh he had all these special memories with Christy that he'll never forget she'll always be a part of him Of course Mercy will only ever be about Adam7 Adam telling his ex wife that she can keep her make up in hisMercy's shared bathroom Really? Why didn't he tell her to make some room in the other two bathrooms in the house? She's not that much of a master manipulator that he couldn't simply tell her to use another bathroom instead of traipsing through hisMercy's bedroom to get to their shared bathroom It's not like it would have been unreasonable for him to tell his ex wife that And then when Mercy rightly lets Adam know she's not happy he leaves it to her to sort out the make upbathroom situation that he created8 The fact he kept his house the exact way Christy decorated and arranged it His house was Christy's than Mercy's it was full of Christy's memories and things There was NOTHING of Mercy there What wife would want to live in a house that was completely decorated by their husband's ex??9 Not helping Mercy with trying to find Coyotethe walking stick whilst she was running around helping him and his ex wife Seriously he could have done to help her she was stressed out about it and he was interested in his ex wife's problem Why is it that Mercy goes above and beyond to help Adam and his pack but in comparison hethey rarely do the same for her? 10 When Adam found out Christy had risked Mercy's life by not telling everyone that her stalker was than human he didn't shout at her for putting Mercy in danger No he was just hurt that Christy hadn't confided in him Ugh11 Adam letting the majority of his pack treat Mercy like shit She lives her life surrounded by those bastards and he does nothing when they treat her with disgust hatred and disdain It's one thing letting Mercy stand up for herself but it's another sitting back and doing nothing whilst the pack treat Mercy like crap day in and day out Does he like to see Mercy treated like shit? He's their alpha he has their respect and loyalty he could easily tell them to back off 12 Adam ever loving a horrid person like Christy It doesn't say much about his love for Mercy when he could fall madly in love with a vile cow like Christy There's no way Mercy would treat Adam the way he treated her in this She would never make him feel that small and rubbish by letting an ex stay in their home and then letting them act like the man of the house She wouldn't have let anyone undermine Adam let alone a jealous ex she also wouldn't have gotten all cosy with an ex in front of him either and she wouldn't still act like someone else's wife when she was married to Adam It's a shame Adam doesn't respect Mercy as much as she does himMore ranty repetitive thoughts WTF Adam pays for Christy's car flat bills and other expenses? Ugh I don't care that Adam's an alpha and feels like he has to look after her He shouldn't be paying for everything as if they were still married She's forty fucking years old she can look after herself Adam doesn't need to bankroll her FFS Adam acted like Christy was still his bloody wife My opinion of Adam went way down in this installment The way he was with Christy pissed me off he let her get away with all sorts got all cosy and nostalgic with her made Mercy feel insecure and in many ways still acted like a husband to Christy Also the fact that he once deeply loved a fucker of a woman like Christy makes me think much less of him There was nothing good about the manipulative immature lying selfish cow — so either Adam was too dumb to see Christy for what she really was or he loved her despite her being an awful person Either way Adam didn't come out looking good Also it was made perfectly clear in this that if Christy had never left Adam he would never have looked twice at Mercy he would have stayed happily married to Christy and wouldn't have wanted Mercy even a little bit So yea that doesn't say much about his feelings for Mercy I LOATHED how Adam let Christy take over his and Mercy house how he let Christy manipulate everyone how loving and caring he was around Christy and how he sat back and did nothing whilst Christy was trying to get one over on Mercy He should have supported Mercy and put Christy in her place whenever she tried to make Mercy feel like crap — but he didn't he just went along with Christy's games and then later when he was alone with Mercy he'd thank her for being a doormat He rarely stuck up for her when the pack was present he just left Mercy to be judged and bitched at All Adam did in this was prove how unworthy he was of Mercy Did Christy really have to stay in Adam's house? It was appalling that he expected Mercy to be cool about his ex wife staying in her house and taking over her home He could have easily asked her to stay with Warren or another wolf Yea Christy would be pissed but so what? At least it'd show that he respected and cared about Mercy's feelings than Christy's Also why would he want Christy to stay with them when she had a psycho chasing her and her living in his house could put his daughter and mate in danger? Ugh it was all about Christy her feelings and her safety Mercy came last Adam could have protected Christy without her living in his home but the wanker wanted her happy and comfortable and couldn't have cared less how Mercy was feeling The dick It was so irritating that Adam left Mercy to deal with Christy's mind games he never once put his foot down with Christy He could have told her to back off he's a bloody alpha and Christy was no longer his wife But no he let Christy do whatever she wanted and then casually watched as Mercy was bombarded with bitchiness from those around her What sort of husband does that to their wife? Why did Christy keep answering Adam's mobile? Why did he let her? It was fucked up Especially when Mercy had already tried to reach him and Christy basically told her to piss off Adam knew that Mercy couldn't get a hold of him when Christy had his phone after that he should have made sure he kept his phone with him instead of letting his petty jealous ex have it Honestly it just made me think that Adam liked Christy playing wifey with him and that he didn't mind Mercy feeling like crap or Mercy not being able to get a hold of him when she was in danger Who was this pathetic excuse for a man? Fans of the series probably think Adam was positively swoony or perfect or even perfectly flawed but to me he turned into a lame wanker bastard douche loser I no longer like his relationship with Mercy He's lost a LOT of points for even loving Christy to begin with what did he ever see in her? She had no redeemable ualities It's clear that that he'll always love Christy and have something with her that he'll never have with Mercy Christy will always be the woman he shared his first marriage first pregnancy and first baby with — anything with Mercy can't compare to those joyful and powerful moments Even if Mercy has his kids one day it wouldn't feel special because he's already experienced it all before with ChristyJesse Anything with Mercy would just be a repeat of that The pack were a bunch of utter dicks they treated Mercy like rubbish even though she'd done than enough to warrant their loyalty and respect In the past she did plenty to prove her worth yet she still had to practically beg and plead for their approval What have they ever done to prove their worth to her? Nothing I hated that Adam's ex wife was portrayed as such a bitch It felt like the only reason she was like that was so that Mercy could look good in comparison Why must so many ex wivesgirlfriends of heroes be vile cows that hate the heroine and want the hero back? It's so cliched and unimaginative Why couldn't Christy be a decent woman who was civil and respectful towards Mercy and her marriage to Adam? Also if she hadn't been written as such a bitch then at least it would have made some sense why Adam fell for her and married her Writing her as a weak manipulative slag just made Adam look like less of a man for ever loving her So Mercy is long lived but not immortal like Adam That means that once she dies Adam will eventually move on and find love elsewhere I mean if he could love a woman like Christy then I'm sure he'll have no trouble falling for another woman after Mercy's death It's weird that the series is called Mercy Thompson when she's now known as Mercy Haumpton She really should have kept her own name I liked the addition of Gary his banter was Coyote was great The ending was enjoyable and uite action packed All in all I wasn't impressed The lack of good secondary female characters annoyed me Mercy spending most of her time around men annoyed me Christy being an irritating cliche annoyed me most of the characters being insufferable annoyed me but worst of all Adam annoyed me he's now ruined for me He was a rubbish mate who was still all about his ex he didn't deserve Mercy This book just left me thinking that Adam's love for Mercy was nothing special at all how could it be when he'd also once been deeply in love with a horrible horrible woman like Christy

    45 stars read for me It was so good being back in Mercy Thompson world You can always count on Patty Briggs to deliver uality story imo and Night Broken was no exceptionBare plot Christy Adam's ex wife is running from a nasty stalker so she decided to seek protection with Adam and his Pack Unfortunately for Mercy stalker in uestion is dangerous supernatural who can end them all and Christy just won't take the hint that there is a new Alpha's Mate in Columbia Basin pack When blurb for this book was released my main concern was how is Patty going to handle whole Christy thing I had two issues with thisFirst is tied to series Adam and Mercy are one of my favorite couple exactly for the reason that they don't go through relationship dramas or misunderstandings that can be resolved with one honest conversation We read them get together becoming pair and running a Pack They are solidI love that Second thing is general I just don't like love triangles and storylines with ex gfs getting back because it's rarely done well not to appear as a between filler meant to drag series and because at one point I am probably going to want to smack hero for doing something extremely stupid tied to his ex Well fear not None of this happened I had a wish that some of wolves EAT Christy every two pages so to say that Mercy had a tough time is an understatement Christy was such a unlikable character She is one of those women who will tell you venomous words using their sweetest voice She was whiny selfish and manipulative in the worst way possible You have Jesse who loves her mother and Adam who has a mile long protective streak and she was not above using that and emotionally blackmail entire Pack Now the thing I liked the most was Adam He never strayed from Mercy never lost connection with her or had trustconversation issues In his heart and mind there is only one his Mate And because of that Christy was never a real problem for me For exampleview spoiler when Christy called for help wanting to come he didn't say yes right away he was thinking and looking at Mercy giving her the say in whole thing as well and Mercy knowing that she is Jesse's mother and thinking about Pack said get her to come hide spoiler

    I forgot to update this reread This is one of the many covers that I love I loved this one as much as the others with one exceptionCHRISTY Yes the stupid ex wife to Adam I can't stand her I would not be able to be as nice as Mercy I would knock her arse out I hope before this series ever ends that she does just that SPOILER ISHThis time the stupid woman meets some man while she is out gambling and sleeps with him because he takes notice of her It ends up he's some fire god that she awakens and has to come crawling back to the pack and live with Mercy and Adam until they can help her Of course she tries to take over I'm sorry I would not be the good little coyote I would take her down and let her know how it is we will help you but you will do as I say PERIOD Ok I'm done ranting about Christy So they have to figure out how to fight this demon jerk Also they pick up a new wolf traveling through he's a submissive so he's not much trouble A Gray Lord wants Mercy to get the staff back from Coyote You have to read the books to know about the staff It's a bunch of crazy going on as usual I don't like what happened to the dogs They should have loaded them up and taken all of them with them Just saying We also get a cameo with Stefen I love him A new character is introduced although I don't think he is coming back Anyway I loved the book as usual ❤️

    This is an example of urban fantasy at it's finest I hate to say it but I've given up on a lot of the series in the adult UF genre that I used to love Why?Well it seems that after a few kick ass books they turn into paranormal romanceor worse Take the Anita Blake series for instance The first few books had a badass heroine that rocked and then the series transitioned into shitty eroticaThat's not what I signed up forI wanted magic and mayhem Not elongated nipples and ten foot werewolf erections On a side note why does every PNR seem to include at least one scene with a vampire biting his lover down there? Call me crazy but that one always makes me cringe How does someone gnawing on your nether regions constitute anything other than a serious ouchie?Sorry I'm veering way off track hereI've been reading these books for about 6 years now and I still get all giggly when a new one comes out Briggs doesn't churn 'em out like a machine and it shows in her writing Mercy is still Mercy She doesn't suddenly develop supernatural orgasm powers or need to sleep with the entire pack in order to maintain some sort of cosmic balanceShe doesn't overestimate herself she doesn't doesn't get angsty and overdramatic and she doesn't overreact to situations that are out of anyone's controlShe's still cool still tough and still goodShe's hands down one of the best UF characters out there todayAnd then there's the rest of the charactersEach of them have a distinct personality and each of them react to situations accordingly It's really an amazing world that Briggs has created And if you haven't given it a chance yet I'd highly recommend that you remedy that 'cause you honestly can't do better than the Mercy Thompson seriesSoIn Night Broken you get an introduction to the ex wife and a lava monsterYou'd think the volcano god would be the scariest but you'd be wrong And while one of them might me able to melt your skin the other one will make you want to peel your own skin off In fact Christy might turn out to be the best nemesis of the entire series Forget the bloodthirsty vampires or scary powerful fae This chick will bake you into a corner and then cry prettily while the pack tears you apart on her behalfShe's like the mega evil version of Martha Stewart shudderYou also get to meet Mercy's newold half brother and find out a few secrets about Mercy's mysterious heritage Her elusive father Coyote pops up just in time to wreak a little havocOr maybe he saves the day? The jury is still out on that oneZee is only mentioned off page but his son Tad certainly has a few surprises up his sleeve I wouldn't be shocked if the next book centers around him in some wayStefan also makes a short appearance but it counts for uite an interesting twist in Mercy's story He's definitely not going anywhere anytime soonIn the end it comes down to Mercy's natural coyote instinct to survive and her willingness to think outside of the box that saves the dayBut I really wouldn't expect anything less of her PSThe last line of the book? Brilliant It's not a cliffhanger but it leaves you desperate for Highly Recommended

    375 stars This installation of the Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series is noteworthy for two things Adam's ex wife Christy comes back into town begging for protection from a stalker but also trying to steal Adam's attention and the werewolf pack's sympathy and loyalty away from Mercy because that's just how Christy rolls And an ancient volcano god from the far off tropical Canary Islands I don't want to give away too much of the plot but fiery Presa Canario dogs I wasn't fond of the whole ex wife subplot Part of it was that I'm tired of the plotline where Mercy is still trying to win over the loyalty of so many members of the pack who dislike having a coyote shifter as part of the werewolf pack Human mates okay; coyote shifters not okay Why??? And although Adam is a good guy the amount of attention and deference he gave Christy really rankled And Christy herself just ugh I can't stand self absorbed pity party people like her But I can't say she wasn't a well drawn character and the plotlines all made sense and came together well in the endThe volcano god plot was pretty solid and a new character shows up Mercy's half brother that Coyote sure gets around who's a great addition to the story It took a couple of books to hit its stride but I really love the Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series

    4 45 stars It’s been a few years since I’ve read a Mercy Thompson book When the 9th book came out and my husband read it I was reminded I still needed to read book 8 I started this one on audio and as always love the narrator that voices Mercy Even though it had been a while since I’ve been in Mercy’s world it all came back to me as I started reading I’ve been reading these books for a decade now and these characters are special to me Mercy will forever be one of my favorite heroines With each book she shows how kick ass she is and how big her heart is There are a few things going on in Night Broken and we meet a few new people LOVED Gary He was a definite highlight of the book Then there is Christy YES one of the ONLY books where my name is used and the character is crazy annoying and a straight up bitch at times ;p Figures I could have used a lot LESS Christy She brought the drama into the story in ways than one There is drama in the pack due to Christy and drama she brings with her in the form of a not so human male things get crazy but as always Mercy stays strong and uses that fight she has within her I love Mercy and I LOVE her with Adam Their relationship is strong and even when things or people get in the middle of it their love is still unwavering I adore them together ”Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman if I have not said it you should know that you brought joy into my life when I thought there was no joy left in the world” This is probably my favorite UFpara series One I’d highly recommend I definitely won’t be waiting years to read the next this time ;

    This book is fantastic I loved every minute every word and every page The set up promises an emotionally tense situation for the pack Mercy and Adam This could have been done poorly but it wasn't Briggs writes the history and the complexity of Adam's ex combing back to town so well Have you been missing Samuel? Stefan? Wulfe? Tad? The crew is back Full review to come closer to release date but damn good stuffA today at Badass Book Reviews

    Re read for the 3rd time June 7th 2020Yep Mercy still deserves a medal for not strangling Christy The fight scenes were pretty exciting The parts with Coyote and Gary Laughingdog were interesting and enlightening Mercy is definitely than just a half human who can turn in to a coyote Powers and advantages still being revealed Re read March 30th 2017I think I hated Christy even the 2nd time around Mercy deserves a medal for not killing herAs usual with the Mercy Thompson series I was glued to the pages I detested Christy Adam's ex wife and master manipulator and I dreaded her bit in the story The saving grace was that Adam staunchly supported Mercy and they were a united front I do wonder why the heck he let Christy answer his phone so many times though The action and plot were fast paced and distracted me from Christy enough to enjoy the story Mercy shined the whole way through but I wouldn't have minded if she was a tad petty and mean to the ex bitch but that would've given power to Christy's attempts to undermine Mercy's standing with both Adam and the pack I marvel at Mercy's people skills and ability to think things through Love that she's a total badass tooThis series is just pure awesomesauce

    March 2018 Reread Buddy read with Sarah and Erica I've realized that despite hating some particular people in this book this is one of my absolute favorites in the seriesFebruary 2017 Re read I still absolutely despise ChristyFebruary 2016 Re read Buddy read with SarahIt could be said prior to this book that all of Mercy's problems have nearly always been aimed directly at her Moon Called excepted That's not the case here This problem heads straight for Christy Adam's ex wife Adam being who he is can't deny protection And I love that about him honestly I do But I absolutely hate Christy in this book and a good number of the PackMost of the books prior to this we could see movement in the overall world and politics between the supernatural beings in it Not so much here There are glimpses moments where we realize and find out that stuff is still moving along and maybe not to the best of places but for the most part this book focuses on Adam and Mercy's Pack That doesn't mean it's slow though I think back to my experience reading it and I realize that Mercy spends a lot of time trying to get away from Christy but that doesn't mean there's a lot of downtime We're moving from one revelation to the next learning about some characters with a few surprising me hugely along the wayI don't want to rant any like I did when I first finished this book but I still do hope that Christy goes away and never returns She's the most selfish self absorbed bitchy woman I also really hope that someone puts the fucking Pack in their place The lack of respect that they show Mercy is absolutely fucking ridiculous Time and time again she's put her neck out on the line for them Time and time again she's never left them hanging or in danger She's never backed down from a fight even when she didn't think she could win And how do they repay her? With betrayal and snide comments Fuck that I am so pissed at most of them There are a couple of notable exceptions and I couldn't love these four I want to gather them all into my arms and give them huge hugs for being decent caring human beingsor werewolvesI found the mystery pretty interesting not because there was a huge mystery I don't think but because it was so different And there are some downright amazing things that happen because of it I can't wait to see the conseuences of some of the choices that were made hereI think that most fans of the series will hate the main aspect of the book Christy trying to worm her way back into Adam's and the pack's life and I can't blame them I hate it too A lot But what I can say is that Adam makes it bearable Those four other characters gave me hope to hold onto Also Mercy's a better person than I I'm not sure I would have taken Christy's jabs with such grace I get why she did because of Jesse but man That took some serious strengthI love this book Now if Christy would just die I'd be a happy woman Or I at least hope the Pack gets an awesome set down in the next book Fire Touchedand that Christy goes back to Eugene 8 December 2014 227 on Kindle16 October 2014 364 on KindleReview to come I need to process The I think about the things happening here the impressed I am This was a episodic book than some of them in that there was the 'Big Bad' and only small movements done to the overall world arc I personally loved that but I can see how it might bother others There's a lot of tension in this book a lot of division for a good portion of it But I like the way things are heading view spoilerAlthough I swear to the gods if Christy moves back to the Tri Cities I'm going to freak the hell out I don't think she will because I think she finally realized what a using bitch she was and still is but I will freak out if it happens I hate her I hate the discord she sows wherever she goes I hate how she blames everyone else for her choices and problems I hate that she can effortlessly manipulate people to doing what she wants and that she uses it for nasty reasons hide spoiler
