Sum It Up! There is no other series like it!

Mercy Thompson returns in the seventh novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

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, what passes for 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. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam’s disappearance may be related—and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed, and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely. (Goodreads)
I am a huge fan of the Mercy Thompson series so I was super excited to read Frost Burned especially since it took so long for this book to come out. Now it’s been awhile since I read River Marked so I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to just jump right in to this book. But I am so happy that it was so easy to just be immersed in Mercy’s world again. There isn’t really any summary of the past events, so if you feel a little sketchy on the details of the last book then it’s okay to read it then read this one.
We are dropped right into the action of Christmas shopping with Mercy and Jesse. Mercy is all attitude and sarcasm and it is so fun to read. But when an emergency arises and Mercy can’t get ahold of anyone in the pack she knows there is something bad going on.
This book was so action packed that it went by very quickly but the pace didn’t seem too fast for everything that was going on in the book. I think if Briggs tried to slow it down it would have damaged the story. The book is split between POV of Mercy and of Adam. This is new, and it was a little weird at first but Briggs did a great job of narrating from Adam’s POV. It also helped the story because Adam and Mercy spend so much time a part. I really didn’t want the story to end, my visits with Mercy always seem to end so soon.
Anyone who enjoys UF definitely needs to get into this world! There is no other series like it, and it is going to be hard waiting for the next book.
