Review: Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs

Book Reviews

4 Stars

Uhmmm, well damn! Silver Borne made me cry a few times!

By now you guys know I’ve been binge reading this series and OMG have I fallen in love with it. I think part of the reason this book made me cry is that I’ve come to care so much for these characters over the last few weeks.

Everyone is pretty much in some kind of danger or hurt in this book. Silver Borne is book five in this series and having read them back to back so far, I feel like DAMN! They’ve gone through SO much in less than a year, which is the time span of these last five books. I guess if you only read one a year it doesn’t really become as noticeable, but I noticed. lol

I could not believe Samuel. And I could not believe what happened to Adam. And, GAH! Mary Jo! Really?! And Gabriel! Lordy… SO MUCH! If you haven’t read these, you’re probably questioning my sanity and ability to put my thoughts down, but it makes some kind of sense if you happen to HAVE read it.

I had to forcefully stop myself from reading River Marked because there’s a couple of books ahead of it, but man! I want to! NOW! I’m almost caught up! I did like how this one ended though. It was a happy ending! I’m happy with where things are at the moment, though I know it won’t last. :)

Being a mechanic is hard work. Mercy Thompson, for instance, just spent the last couple of months trying to evade the murderous queen of the local vampire seethe. And now the leader of the werewolf pack, who’s maybe-more-than-just-a-friend, has asked for her help. A book of fae secrets has come to light and they’re all about to find out how implacable – and dangerous – the fae can be.

OK, so maybe her troubles have nothing to do with the job. But she sure could use a holiday…
