    One thought on “Silver Borne

    1. Carol. on said:

      I don't recommend doing what Naomi and I did, which is read through the Mercy Thompson books back to back. It becomes reasonably clear that the reader is getting roughly the same story with different covers. I've spent a lot of time considering this; the series has many ardent fans, and I used to be among them. I think it all depends on what one enjoys in a story, and how tolerant one is of repetition. I'd rate my tolerance somewhere in the middle, but only until the tipping point occurs, either [...]

      Patricia Briggs does not disappoint us in Silver Borne, the 5th book in her fabulous Mercy Thompson Series.We continue following Mercy’s life and the world that she lives in…trouble always follows her as she throws herself into saving or helping her friends. This story goes deeper into the secretive and dark and dangerous fae world…. Mercy has something that the fae want back – a book she had borrowed from a fae friend, who is in danger because of that. She finds herself being contacted [...]

      Same old, same old. I love Mercy but these books are starting to show a clear pattern. I wish PB would shake up her plotlines a little with something (or someone) fresh.

    4. Felicia on said:

      I really enjoyed this book. My passion for this sub-genre has been waning because there has been SO much of it out there, but Mercy is one of the originals, and a really good heroine, working-class, compassionate and never perfect. I think I actually enjoyed this installment in the series better than the last, the characters were really fleshed out, the mystery was well-plotted. Nothing HUGE happens, but being comfortable with the world and the other characters is nothing to sniff at. Enjoyable, [...]

      I can't deny that I read this book in one sitting, and that the narrative was absorbing. Briggs is a good writer. But by the next morning, all I could think of were complaints. I suspect I'll be in the minority in disliking this, though.There's no Stephan at all. Maybe the author thinks everybody is sick of vampires. I'm not. I'm sick of the damned Fae. Their presence has ruined this series for me. They're too otherworldy and overly-magical for the kind of urban fantasy I enjoy. I've always like [...]

      February 2018 Reread. Buddy read with Sarah and Erica.February 2017 Re-readJanuary 2016 Re-read: Buddy read with SarahThis is probably one of my favorite books in the series. I always love the ones that deal with the fae a little bit more than the others. And this one definitely has the fae in spades. Beyond that we really get to delve into the issues that Adam's been having in his Pack. I like that things don't magically get better, but that it takes work and figuring out the problem to get to [...]

      3.5 stars. This was a decent book as part of the ongoing Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series, and worth reading for those who are already into this series, but not one of my favorites in this series. It combines two or three plotlines:(1) Mercy's ongoing issues with the werewolf pack, which become her mate Adam's issues, which leads to some insurrection in the ranks and a mixed martial arts kind of fight for position in the pack, including that of the Alpha. The disclosure of the conspiracy and [...]

      I never get tired of this series!!! The introduction of coyote is like icing on the cake!!! 5 stars!!!

    9. Emma on said:

      Another great instalment! This book involved the fae and the vamps didn't even get a bit part! It's interesting that when I read the first book in this series, I was almost put off continuing by all the werewolf politics. Here in book 5, there is a lot of werewolf politicking, but now that I'm happily ensconced in the series, it was interesting to read.

      Re-read March 25th 2017 Can't stop my re-reading binge! ****Spoilers if you haven't read the previous books****Mercy navigates Pack dynamics and the animosity of some of the members. Being a coyote brought into a werewolf Pack doesn't make several happy, but there are a couple unhappy for another reason. Adam and Mercy's relationship strengthens in spite of some outside interference and I'm always impressed with the loyalty and love between them. Samuel's mental condition takes a turn for the wo [...]

      Briggs is my drug of choice! I loved this book! It made me very glad that I had also read the Alpha and Omega series!

      *** 4.10 ***Another wondrous Mercy Thompson adventure and another book added to my "really pleasant read" shelf. Mercy's world is full of magical creatures, most of which deserve their monster label. Our part time coyote is once again entangled in a game of life and death, as much as she tries to convince her friends and pack mates that she does not actively look for trouble. Last time the vampires were gunning for her, this time the local Fae are looking for something she is in possession of, t [...]

      Read April 2, 2010:Wow, wow, wow. I adored this installment of the Mercy series, and it is definitely one of my favorites. This book was a bit of a change from the rest of the series though. Usually Mercy's adventures are action driven with a lot of humor, wit, danger, and a sprinkle of romance to tease readers. With this book though romance definitely took the front seat in terms of plot with action/plot taking a more secondary role. Either way though it was fantastic.The plot combined my 2 fav [...]

      4.5 stars - great!This book was yet another winner for me in this series. I really loved it. I laughed a couple of times. . .I cried possibly a couple of times (but definitely after the end). :-)I wrote the first paragraph of this review immediately after finishing this book. Time is not doing it any favors. Had I written this review yesterday, after finishing it, it probably would have been a five-star story. Now, though? Now I'm thinking it was just 4.5-stars-great.The main reason for this dow [...]

      This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.I really enjoyed this book. Anyone who has been following my reviews probably already knows how much I love this series and this book was no exception. It was so nice to re-visit this wonderful story and spend more time with characters that I have grown to love. This wasn't the most exciting book in the series or my favorite but it was still a very solid read. Mercy has a lot to deal with in this installment. She needs to find the ow [...]

      Ahh!! *satisfied sigh*I just re-read this book, and enjoyed it even more the second time. Up from 4 to 5 stars. So far, THIS book, #5, Silver Borne, is the BEST in this series. Enough plot and plenty of action, but also character driven and relational. Romance, too. I loved it!By the way, Mercy is not a typical stock UF character. Quiz yourself with 15 questions about Mercy's age, ancestry, beliefs, occupation, etc.Mild Spoilers Ahoy: Mercy and friends must rescue an old bookseller (Phin) and Ga [...]

      Posted on Under the CoversIt’s the return of the Fae in Silver-Borne! Like I said before, I don’t usually like fae stories, but Briggs is always an exception. Mercy Thompson always finds herself in the middle of a huge mess, but she’s always level-headed, always logical and keeps it simple. With Mercy as the newest addition of the Columbia Basin Pack, she’s still getting used to having Adam inside her head with the bond and learning to deal with the other werewolves in the pack. As an in [...]

      My reviews for these books are getting kind of repeatative, how many ways are there to say I LOVE THIS SERIES! Not too many I think. So I have decided to do a list of what I love about this book:1. Mercy & Adam- I love that rather then them having an immediate love-you-till-you-die connection that it seems to have grown and in this book you really see how deep the bond between them is. Indivdually, especially Mercy, they are likable characters brave and honest and the more I read about them, [...]

    20. Duchess Nicole on said:

      Seriously, this is one of the most kick ass Urban Fantasy series out there. Mercy is the best type of heroine in that she's so atypical, it's impossible not to love her. She's more likeable than Rachel from the Hollows series by Kim Harrison, she's more down to earth than the pseudo romance-slash-UF series heroines out there. She's the best friend I never had, and considering all the beasties and baddies coming after her, that may be a good thing. In this installment, the bond between her and Ad [...]

    21. Sarah on said:

      I absolutely love Patricia Briggs' writing, her Mercy Thompson series (and the Alpha & Omega books set in the same world) is one of my favourite urban fantasy series and I tend to reread it most years to get ready for the latest release. Since I have a section of my bookshelves dedicated to this series I thought it would be fun to make a book fold to add.I decided I wanted to do a wolf howling at the moon (yes I get that Mercy is a Coyote but the majority of characters in the series are were [...]

      Is there anything like holding the latest Mercy Thompson novel in your hands? Especially when it's all large and hardback and glowing? Because the window on this book seriously glows. And the spine and back are warm and golden and it's just so much prettier than the online images led me to believe. These are the simple things that make me happy. A beautiful dust jacket. A favorite author doing well. Spending time once more with characters who are friends now and who are none the worse for wear f [...]

    23. Midu Hadi on said:

      Let me begin by saying. I love this series. It might be due to one of these many reasons:Mercy kicks butt and she is so messed up that she can't function socially-love that about her.She knows her limitations and isn't all powerful.The author dealt with certain unsavory issues beautifully.The romance took 5 books to develop into something that can be called a relationship.Its just so refreshing to meet an Alpha who doesn't thrust his will on his partner and is willing to put up with her going ag [...]

    24. Lisa Kay on said:

      ★★★★½ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Lorelei King narrates this first person POV, and I think she just keeps getting better at speaking as our little coyote-shifter garage mechanic, Mercy. She has a lot of voices in this adventure, which concentrates on the fae – but, definitely not this kind of fae (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] – plus werewolves (of course), and a (view spoiler)[witch; but, real b!tch-witch, rather than this kind of a witch (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] ( [...]

      5 "Traitors, Fae Magic & Self-Sacrifices" Stars for the story and narration!Wow, Patricia Briggs really outdoes herself in Silver Borne! This little gem of an UF book is chock full with intersecting, separate plot lines among many diverse members of Mercy Thompson's world. Moreover, its not just the fantasy that makes this 5th installment in the Mercy Thompson Series special, but also its attention to the romantic connections and its impact on the life circumstances of several of the key cha [...]

      "I thought you were dead," he said"Stupid," I said. "As if I'd die without taking you with me."He smiled faintly.Mercy has grown on me throughout this series. She still isn't as much of a smartass as I would like, but she is becoming more and more fun as time goes on. In this book, she is dealing with Samuel's issues while trying to figure out where Phin, the bookstore owner, has gone. On top of that, she has Adam's pack messing with her because some of them are not happy with her status as Adam [...]

      As always, I love Mercy and her world. This one is no exception. From tricky fae to sexy werewolves, Briggs' world never ceases to entertain.
