4 stars-- Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs

Can I just start out with a *big dreamy sigh* because Adam and Mercy? *swoons*

The quick of it is that there's all kinds of troubles between the Fae and, well, pretty much everyone else --hello there's a troll destroying a bridge and eating people! And suddenly the Pack's smack in the middle of it trying to figure out a way to keep their area and people safe and bring some kind of truce with the Fae about while not totally giving in to their demands of turning someone over to them. Pack dissent, new arrivals, a little romance and danger all swirling about in a thrilling little package. Gah! Seriously!

I froze. Raised an eyebrow. "Did Bran really compare me to your ex-wife,or are you just saying that so I'll be mad at him instead of you?"

"Would I do that?" he asked.

I narrowed my eyes at him. "In a heartbeat, you would."

He laughed.

"Okay," he said. I deserved that. But those were his exact words."
Adam and Mercy will always be one of my favorite couples. They're funny and sweet and while there's no actual naughty happenings on the pages they definitely have the chemistry going on that'll give you some delicious warm tingles. I love seeing them strong, confident and playful with each other this time around.

The action and adventure was entertaining. Curious and with times of danger thrown in as the wolf Pack tries to deal with the ever dangerous Fae and a declaration of Mercy's that gets the paranormal world in a bit of a tizzy. Things are definitely changing for this group of wolves and their place in the order of things and hot dayum it's non stop excitement.

I wasn't totally caught up with the series (I'm 2 books behind! ahhh!) when I picked this one up so there were some new arrivals to the character line up and some new developments to the paranormal world that surrounds them but really it wasn't an issue. Briggs did an excellent job of making it easy to jump into this one even if you're a little behind.

All in all...classic Briggs. Fire Touched was wonderful and captivating. Definitely one to grab up.

Tensions between the fae and humans are coming to a head. And when coyote shapeshifter Mercy and her Alpha werewolf mate, Adam, are called upon to stop a rampaging troll, they find themselves with something that could be used to make the fae back down and forestall out-and-out war: a human child stolen long ago by the fae.

Defying the most powerful werewolf in the country, the humans, and the fae, Mercy, Adam, and their pack choose to protect the boy no matter what the cost. But who will protect them from a boy who is fire touched?
