In this new instalment in the No. 1 New York Times bestselling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves . . .

My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.

And a coyote shapeshifter . . . And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.

Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn't stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae.

The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death.

But we are pack, and we have given our word. We will die to keep it.

I began this series before my audio addiction began and have stayed with the written format. Storm Cursed is the eleventh book in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs and she brings witches, zombies, vampires and more to our door.

…a storm is coming and her name is Death.

I love that this series continues to surprise me with new developments, growth and storylines that keep me up reading past my bedtime. If you haven’t begun the Mercy Thompson series or discovered the Alpha & Omega series I beseech you to run, not walk to your nearest bookstore.

Caffeinated Reasons You’ll Devour Storm Cursed

  • Briggs stepped up her game and brought an action-packed tale as witches descend on the Tri-Cities. Before all is said and done Mercy will discover another of her abilities.
  • The pack is tasked with security during the human and fae negotiations. Mercy is to act as liaison, but first she needs to deal with some odd zombies and deadly witches.
  • Action-packed and plot-driven, Storm Cursed by Patricia Briggs grabbed me and never let go.
  • I love that we are eleven books in and yet the storyline still feels fresh. Briggs crafted a story that pulled me in. She made me cringe, laugh aloud, swoon and gasp.
  • Development and threads regarding secondary characters blew my mind. We see and learn more about Sherwood Post. Zee is present, as is Uncle Mike and Larry the Goblin King. Zee always has Mercy’s back and I enjoyed his presence. Wulfe is a part of our story and oh my! *shivers*
  • Trolls, Orgs, and Zombie Goats. This tale had it all as Mercy, the pack and her friends dealt with some nasty witches.
  • Briggs delivered as she fleshed out newer characters, shared history on some older ones and scared the bejesus out of me. Dark magic is not to be messed
  • Coyote. Any page time with him is ALWAYS interesting. Some things he said have me eager for more!

Storm Cursed was addictive from begin to end with plenty of development, action and twitchy-witches. My only complaint ..I want more!

    I think my only complaint ever with this series is that I want more! Every installment has been amazing! It seems like the witches might be a reoccurring issue in the coming books! Eeeek! Wonderful review, Kimberly! 🙂

    Just finished last night. I loved the whole thing, but yes, a new Mercy gift and the reveal on Elizaveta was something. What would happen if Larry and Coyote went on the town together? LOL

    All great points on why to read this one. The side stories, especially Zee, Wulfe, and Sherwood are phenomenal. I also enjoyed learning more about the witches. So much happened and I can’t wait to see what will come about next!

  4. Heidi

    Yeah! five stars. This is one of the longest UF series I have been reading. I just got the audiobook for this today. Looking forward to starting this one! I adore Coyote.

    Loving the cover, very powerful. I had thought I’d tired myself of vampires and the like but this combination of folk and the promise of a story that kept you reading way past your bed time has tempted me.

    Yes, yes YES! I loved this! This whole series really is so easy to get lost in and wrapped up in. I just adore it.

    Great review Kim. This author/series is on my wish list. I guess you get a certain voice in your head when you read vs listening so I’m assuming you’re not doing audio because of that.
    Thanks for making this go up a bit on my list.

    This is a series I have wanted to try but feel so overwhelmed. I know it’s a series that I would totally love though, so I just need to get my butt in gear. The audiobooks sound fantastic. I have to check if Hoopla or Overdrive has them! They must! I am glad that they are still phenomenal for you.

    I read it Carole’s Random reads, she liked it so I am definitely going to read it one day… when I finish Harry Dresden

    Again this is another series that my bookie friends rave about but I still haven’t read. I will add it to my ever growing wish list 😉

    It’s wonderful that this series still manages to be fresh, new, and exciting with so many books in it. That speaks volumes about what a talented author Patricia Briggs is! I’m going to check out this series! I can tell how much you love it! ?
