"You keep bothering the monsters, Mercy, and someday something's going to eat you." He sounded calm and cool as he kept his eyes on the fence I'd jumped over. He had a big automatic in one hand - he must carry concealed because I hadn't noticed him holding one when he opened the door.

"Oh, I hope not," I said between gasps. "I don't want to be eaten. I've been counting on the vampires to kill me first."

Title: Iron Kissed
Series: Mercy Thompson #3
Author:  Patricia Briggs
Urban Fantasy
Mass Market Paperback, 287 pages 
Published January 2nd 2008 by Ace
I could smell her fear, and it satisfied something deep inside me that had been writhing under her cool, superior gaze. I curled my upper lip so she could get a good look at my sharp teeth. I might only weigh thirty or so pounds in my coyote shape, but I was a predator...

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...

My Thoughts
Once again, one of my favorite series.  This is one of my favorite scenes in this book.  Mercy is great at getting into trouble without even trying.


  1. I've only read the first book in the series and I enjoyed it. I really should go back to it and continue the series.

  2. I like to read books where the heroine has a nontraditional occupation -- like a mechanic. I'm intrigued by Mercy's shape-shifting ability too! Sounds like a good book.
    My Teaser is from THE FRIENDSHIP STAR QUILT.

  3. Looks fun :)


  4. Probably not my style, but still a great teaser! Thanks for sharing! :) Here's my Teaser Tuesday!

  5. Vampires, monsters and concealed weapons? What a most alluring scene!
