Night Broken by Patricia Briggs
Mercy Thompson #8

Night Broke


Adam's ex-wife needs help, and she, of course, calls Adam for his assistance and his protection. Adam is a responsible guy and he won't let anything happen to Cristy, who is the mother of his only child.

It seems that Cristy's boyfriend is obsessed with her and is stalking her. He may also not being human. A new evil is ALSO around and getting closer to Adam's territory.

And if this weren't enough, we have a Fae wanting the walking stick back.

I love the Mercyverse. It is one of my ultimate favorite UF series.

I love how strong Mercy is. Love that she takes charge and asks questions later. She is a survivor but will put her life in danger in order to protect what is right, her pack, her love, and her family.

Adam was kind of a disappointment. His relationship with Christy annoyed me. Mercy is his wife now. She deserves all his respect and he should have made it clear to the ex-wife from hell. Cristy's invasion of their privacy was rude and Adam allowing it was even worse. I think her line at the hospital was awful too and deserved major punishment.

I do believe the pack (except Warren, Ben, and now Honey) needs to grow up. They acted like spoiled brats for too many books now. Deal with it or leave. The coyote has saved your behind way too many times.

“Just be careful, Mary Jo. Be very careful. You’ve made mistakes before. Everyone makes mistakes. One you should not make is to imagine that Christy will ever be Adam’s mate. He is mine, and unlike her, I don’t throw away people who are mine.”

In regards to the secondary characters:

Great addition: Gary Laughingdog.

The twist in regards with Stephan was ok with me. I just wished he had more page time.

From the pack who hates Mercy, I liked Honey the most. And I do want her to fall in love again, maybe with a certain "walker" too.

Coyote was cool as always.

I missed Ben a lot. Ben was so important in Iron Kissed, but in this one he was relegated to a few lines.

I missed Bran too. His addition is always welcome and I wished he would get his own book.

Kyle is still smart and funny at the right times.

Overall this book was a winner. Too bad we have to wait another two years for more.

“Love means leaving yourself vulnerable, knowing that there is someone to catch you when you fall."

4.5/5 Fangs
