In the #1 New York Times bestselling Mercy Thompson novels, the coyote shapeshifter has found her voice in the werewolf pack. But when Mercy's bond with the pack and her mate is broken, she'll learn what it truly means to be alone...

Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe...

Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise...

Liza’s Review:

The Mercy Thompson series from Patricia Briggs is one of those series I both have to read the book and listen to the audiobook as soon as it is released. I absolutely adore everything about the Mercy Thompson series. Silence Fallen is the first book to give the reader the point of view from both Mercy and Adam. While it took a bit for me to get used to it with the audiobook, I did like having both points of view and even ended up liking having two different narrators.

I enjoyed Silence Fallen and thought it was a great addition to the Mercy Thompson series. Since Mercy was kidnapped and separated from Adam from much of the book, I did miss the connection and time with them. I did really love how strong Mercy was though everything she had to deal with in Italy and Prague. Honestly if there was ever a character who has the right to totally breakdown, it is Mercy, but she remains as strong as ever. 

I also enjoyed watching Adam have to team up with the vampires to help him rescue Mercy. Adam usually has Mercy as a buffer when dealing with the vampires, but I enjoyed seeing the vampires work with Adam and his werewolves to deal with one of the world's strongest vampires so they could finally find Mercy. As the book goes back and forth between Adam's and Mercy's points of view, and not on a solid timeline, I liked that Mercy gave updates before each chapter to let the readers know where we were in the story.

Silence Fallen was another winner in the Mercy Thompson series. Again, while I missed Mercy and Adam being together the entire book, I did like seeing both characters grow more in this book. I also got many unexpected laughs from Silence Fallen and feel like Doctor Who fans will as well.

Rating: 4 Stars (B+)
