About Patricia:

Patricia Briggs was born in Butte, Montana to a children’s librarian who passed on to her kids a love of reading and books. Patricia grew up reading fairy tales and books about horses, and later developed an interest in folklore and history. When she decided to write a book of her own, a fantasy book seemed a natural choice. Patricia graduated from Montana State University with degrees in history and German and she worked for a while as a substitute teacher.

About this Book:

Patricia Briggs’s novel River Marked was praised as “an urban fantasy where our everyday world is believably twisted into the world of fey, werewolves, vampires, and myths made real.” Now Mercy Thompson faces a shapeshifter’s biggest fear as the realm she has embraced is thrown into chaos…

Mercy Thompson’s life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman – the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack – has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy’s life. But on the edges of humanity, a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more…

After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can’t reach Adam – or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They’ve all been abducted.

Through their mating bond, all Mercy knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. But she fears Adam’s disappearance may be related to the political battle the werewolves have been fighting to gain acceptance from the public – and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outmatches and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.

    I’ll read either as long as they are good. I do find that some stories simply need several books to be told eg. Game of Thrones.

    I enjoy both. That said, I prefer series if I find that the author can keep stories fresh. It is wonderful when you have knowledge of individual characters and are able to watch them grow over time.

    “Do you prefer to read series novels or standalone novels? Please explain.” If a series is fantastic, like Lemony Snicket, I love a series. But the idea of starting a thriller series in the middle?…it’s difficult!

    I love both! I love series because you can continue to get lost in the same worlds.

    I like both. I intend to get easily distracted from long series though

    I’m greedy, so I tend to love series. I love books, though, and have NEVER let the fact a book is a stand alone keep me from reading it.
