“Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes—only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe… “
Naturally, I loved it. I felt frustrated for them when Adam and Mercy were separated. There were a lot of things that were below the surface.
Some new vampires are introduced in this book. Other new characters include the goblin King, Larry. Yup, that is his name, Larry. The Alpha of Prague is also new, Libor, who has an unexpected connection to the Columbia Basin pack and an unknown grudge against Bran, the Marrock. They reference another wolf that was in the Alpha Omega spin-off series, which I love as much if not more than this series.
There was a lot of action, intrigue, and some unexpected surprises that tie into real folklore that I hadn’t ever heard of but it was interesting to learn. The end had something so unexpected that I am still surprised by it. I tried to think back and see if I should have figured it out before but I don’t think I would have even thought to. My sister is better at making those connections. I am more of an in the moment kind of reader.
This book cemented my liking of the werewolf Honey, from Adam’s pack, who is a strong force to be reckoned with. I think I am really going to like Larry the goblin king, or is it, Goblin King? I am pretty sure he will be in future books. I also have a better understanding of Mercy’s powers or maybe purpose is. Again, I might have missed a book somewhere that explained it but I just had a vague idea until this book. I thought I had read them all but maybe I need to revisit the whole series to make sure!
My oldest sister and I discussed which we would rather be if we had a choice and they existed, a vampire or a werewolf. I’m werewolf all the way but she looked at me like I was crazy. She fits vampires better anyway and man would she be a scary one!
