    *Review below*Ahh, yes, another Mercy book. We might have to wait another year, but at least the series is continuing!*Happy and so excited!*There are a couple things I would love to see happen in the next book/finally figure out:1. I would love for Smurf Christy to make another appearance, just so Mercy can throwdown again. 2. Learn more about Mercy's lifespan (view spoiler)[(PLEASE let her actually be immortal!) (hide spoiler)].3. More Kyle, Wa...

    I love Mercy and Adam so much! I love the majority of everyone in these books! Now the crew are going up against the fae by taking out a troll they sent and taking in a boy they are after. Everything was so bad ass as usual. This series can go on forever as far as I'm concerned! I would love for Mercy and Adam have a baby. Would it be part werewolf and coyote? Who would know. It's an awesome concept though 😊And I love this cover! She's so bad ...

    FINALLY, we're back on track. I felt like both the last Mercy and Alpha & Omega book were filler/setup, but FIRE TOUCHED is plot-driven and fantastic.Full RTC.

    One of my favorite books in this series! Full review, first posted on Touched is the ninth novel in Patricia Briggs’ MERCY THOMPSON urban fantasy series, and the series is still going strong. In fact, this is one of the stronger entries in the series. (Spoiler alert for earlier books in the series.)Mercy is relaxing in her home with her husband Adam, the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack. Of course there a...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.I absolutely loved this book! As soon as I had this book, I set everything else aside and started it right away. It has been two long years since I had a new Mercy Thompson book to read and this book proved to be worth the wait. It really had just about everything that I could have hoped for. There was tons of excitement, some tender moments, and some scenes that made me laugh. I haven't read ...

  • carol.
    You aren't going to believe this, because I can just barely, but suddenly I started enjoying Mercy Thompson again. My last reviews for books 4 through 6 were less then stellar. Reading so many so close together highlighted the narrative re-explanations, the device of kidnapping, Mercy's lack of agency, the general lack of females and the general antipathy of the females that were included. Surprisingly, much of that changes here, sometimes obviou...

    This is what I looked like when the librarian handed me this book:Not even an exaggeration, folks...So, after all that flailing and screaming, was it any good?YES!In fact, I only have one complaint, and that's that Fire Touched was just waaaaaay too short.342 pages, Ms. Briggs? Are you trying to kill me with disappointment?!Oh well. I guess I'll just take what I can get...and like it.Ok, ok. I'll shut up about the length.This one was classic Merc...

    4.25 starsFire Touched is the ninth book in Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson series. This is one of those series I have been reading for forever and I still look forward to each book releasing. My husband and I both love this series, so it’s fun to chat about it since we don't read a ton of the same books. There is always some supernatural drama going on around Mercy- and this book centers on the fae. It starts with a troll, then goes to a fir...
  • Rachel Reads Ravenously
    4.5 stars! The Mercy Thompson series is one I've been reading for years. I love it so much and think we are lucky as fans that the series has not ended yet. It's also one of the best urban fantasy series out there, in my opinion. So every Spring when a new book in the series is published I get so delighted because I really want to see what happens next in the series.In this ninth installment, Mercy and her Alpha werewolf husband Adam, find themse...

    5 Nudge starsAnother Mercy winner! These books are getting better and better. At some point I looked up and saw that I had read to 80% of the book and didn't even realize it!An excellent addition to the series and hopefully we will get the next one sooner rather than later.P.S. I never thought I'd get upset over a piece of wood but Patricia Briggs managed it.----------------------------------------MARCH 2016?2016?Two years?! Now, I seriously don'...
  • Mogsy (MMOGC)
    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum Touched is another strong entry into the Mercy Thompson series, and even though it might not be my favorite book or even in my top three, the significance of this volume cannot be overlooked because it contains a lot of important moments and turning points.For one thing, the pack has grown again. Mercy may have stirred things up after becoming the mate of Adam, alpha...

    Re-read April 1st 20174.5 StarsWhen the Fae let a monster loose, the Pack are called to take it down, since the police can’t make any headway and lives are at stake. Zee and Tad join in the fight bringing with them an odd, fire-touched boy named Aiden who seeks the Pack’s protection from the Fae. Taking in Aiden brings all kinds of risk and problems, but we all know Mercy and Adam would never turn their back on someone seeking safety. At the ...
  • Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog)
    I love returning to this world. Not only it is comforting to be back into Mercy’s head but there’s just something about this world that always excites me. There’s never a dull moment, especially when a rampaging troll starts causing mayhem. It’s up to Mercy and her merry crew to tame him. But that seems to be the least of her problems when she discovered that a human child has been stolen by the fae years ago. This sparks a dangerous war ...

    March 2018 Reread. Buddy read with Sarah and Erica.February 2017 Re-readOriginal review:I, often, think that it's harder to review a book in a favorite series, or by a favorite author, than almost any other review I write. Not only am I comparing that book to everything else I've ever read, but I'm comparing it to the best that this author, this series, has ever given me. Then there's the fact that because I have twelve full-length novels in my...
  • Marta Cox
    Mercy Thompson (or should that be Hauptman ?)will always take readers on a fantastic ride and not just because she's a mechanic ! No this coyote shifter who just happens to be married to Adam the local Alpha of the werewolves, just seems to always be in the thick of it. She has stood up to Gods, tackled Vampires, fought Fae assassins and worst of all survived against Adams ex wife ! So when a troll shows up surely its business as usual? Well mayb...
  • Carmel (Rabid Reads)
    Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.FIRE TOUCHED started off with an impressive fight between some of Adam’s pack members, Mercy and a troll on a bridge, and the stakes only got higher from there. There’s a very real possibility that an all-out war between the fae and the werewolves might be looming on the horizon, and the outcome rests on this book’s shoulders. Patricia Briggs once again worked her creative mojo by writing a brilliant plot-driven sto...
  • Sharon ∞❥ is an emotional book junkie ❥∞
    4.5 ★'sAnother favorite urban fantasy couple and series that is yes, a bit formulaic, but P.B. has done a good job keeping certain things fresh and interesting. Mercy and Adam continue to present a united front against the problems with the Fae and they even manage to ramp things up a notch. But I just love the two of them together and I was really impressed with what Adam did. It was great having Zee and Tad back and I really liked the newcome...

    1st Read February 20162nd Read February 20173rd Read March 2018Original Review:Buddy read with AngeI reread the entire Mercy Thompson series (and the Alpha & Omega spin off) before the release of Fire Touched so to say I was hyped up for this book is a massive understatement. I absolutely adore this world and all it's characters and I'm incredibly invested in what happens to them so this was right up there among my most longed for books of the ye...
  • Erin *Proud Book Hoarder*
    3.5“Holy Avon, Batman, I thought as worry relaxed into annoyance-tinged humor, I’ve been attacked by a multilevel marketer.” Now don't get me wrong with the rating that is under four or even five stars - I liked this book and wasn't disappointed with it. It has Mercy and most of the group I'm used to, it had an interesting enough story, but it didn't have the oomph and energy required for a four star rating. It was kind of like sitting with...
  • Lisa Kay
    ...Quote from Fire Touched...★★★★★ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Lorelei King, who narrates Mercy’s first person account of this series, just keeps getting better and better. She has a nice range of voices for all the characters. And I just love how you can tell when Mercy is talking with someone from when she is only thinking something. It is a nice thing to know, when you listen to an audiobook. She can make Mercy’s voice f...
  • Ferdy
    2.5 stars - Spoilers-Quite enjoyed the story, mainly because of all the fae politics/drama going on, it was better than Patricia Briggs last few Mercy/Anna books which have been nothing but ex wife/girlfriend nonsense and bitchy pack drama. I still couldn't stand most of the characters though. Mercy with her constant apologies, self-blame, and guilt about every decision she made was boring to read. As well as her do goody, vanilla ways, there was...
  • Charlie
    5 Fire Touched stars!This was a fantastic addition to the series and I think it may be one of the best yet, definitely top 3. I just adore Mercy and the gang, I love them a little more every book. The world has really evolved since the first book and I love that the fae play a bigger part as the series goes on.This book is filled with the characters we already know and love and it introduces a new one, Aiden, a boy who was stolen by the fae, trap...

    2.5 starsYes, that's right, only 2.5 stars. I struggled with how to rate this because my sense of loyalty and nostalgia warred with my sense of fairness and honesty. In the end honesty won out. This has long been a favorite series of mine and I love and adore Mercy and Adam, Ben, Warren, and Kyle. I still love them and will continue reading about them likely as long as the author keeps writing about them. That said, the particular plot of this bo...
    Mercy Thompson is one of the few long running series - other than Jane Yellowrock - that I feel is super easy to fall back into after absence. Seriously, one page in and Mercy and Adam have hung arms around my shoulders and been all "Hey girl, welcome back". Ugh, you guys. Stahp!But, wait. What is that?War.Can you feel it?Because it's coming. Via troll. Full review to come closer to release.
  • Jen Davis
    It’s a pretty rare thing for a series to really hold on to its spark after nine installments. But this one does it. Reading this book was like falling back into a familiar world I know and love. I didn’t want to put it down, not because it was an adrenaline filled ride, but because I cared what would happen next. Mercy Thompson is a fantastic heroine. She is not the strongest or the most powerful, but she is astute and loyal, and when the chi...
  • Carole (Carole's Random Life in Books)
    Notes on the AudioI love this book! I am not going to write another long review since all of my thoughts from just 2 years ago still hold true. I did remember a lot more of the details than I usually do with books that I re-read simply because it hasn't been all that long since I read it the first time. The book is exciting at times, funny at others, and tender when appropriate. Lorelei King does a fabulous job with Mercy, Adam, and the whole gan...
