Series : Mercedes Thompson
Release date : March 2011
Publisher : Penguin Group
Genre : Urban Fantasy
Mercy Thompson has been through hell and back, but there is one thing that scares the hell out of her, her human mother. Her mother Margi is going overboard with planning Mercy’s wedding to Adam, so she’s thinking about eloping real hard.
Mercy and Adam are going to the banks of Columbia River for their honeymoon, just the two of them in an ignoramus trailer. But trouble always follows Mercy, this time a huge monster lurks in the river destroying everyone who dares to enter.
Mercy also discovers more about her past and others of her kind and she will need their help to stop the monster before it will take them all.
River Marked by Patricia Briggs is the sixth novel in her Mercedes Thompson Series and it’s another fabulous instalment.
What I love about this book is that it’s finally about Mercy and Adam alone, the way they bond after the wedding, working together as a team to fight this monster and learning more about Mercy’s past. We all know that Mercy push Adam’s buttons more often than normal couples, but I believe that’s what makes their relationship special. It was fabulous to read about their growing relationship.
The only downside of the book is that we don’t see the previous secondary characters as much as we want to. The focus of this book was about Mercy and her background. Although I’m a huge fan of Mercy and especially Adam, I really hope to see the others more often in the following book.
Fans who already love the series won’t be disappointed with this novel; it’s a great addition to the series. I highly recommend this book to the Urban Fantasy Booklovers.
