Title: Iron Kissed
Series: Mercy Thompson #3
Author: Patricia Briggs
Release Date: January 2, 2008
Mechanic Mercy Thompson can shift her shape - but not her loyalty. When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder and left to rot behind bars by his own kind, it's up to Mercy to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not.
Mercy's loyalty is under pressure from other directions, too. Werewolves are not known for their patience, and if Mercy can't decide between the two she cares for, Sam and Adam may make the choice for her...
It's difficult to write a review on a book you have read so many times.
The first time I read it was in 2010 and to this day, Iron Kissed is still one of my favorite books.
In Iron Kissed, Mercy will have to help Zee who has been imprisoned by the humans after finding him at the scene of a crime. Mercy knows Zee is innocent but when the Fae turned on Zee, she won't rest until she can find the true killer to save her friend's life.
Iron Kissed is also the book where Mercy will make a choice in regards to her love life. Is it Sam, the man she fell in love with when she was sixteen? or is it Adam, the alpha of the werewolf pack she has fallen for?
Not to say I don't like Sam but hands down, I was Team Adam (and still am).
Mercy is such an amazing heroine. She is resourceful, smart, caring, and deadly when she needs to be. She likes to protect the people she cares about and this is mostly the main reason why she is always in danger.
Like Samuel said: "You have a real gift for getting into trouble, don't you?". Yes, she does but she also knows how to be a survivor in a world where things go bump at night.
This book is also the one responsible for me loving Ben. He becomes one of my favorite characters in this series after his insight and emotional speech helps Adam understand what Mercy couldn't say.
I won't deny it. Iron Kissed always brings tears to my eyes.
Earlier, I said I was team Adam but I'm really Team Mercy. She is the one I enjoy reading about.
