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..

Kimberly graciously allowed me to share her review, originally posted here.

Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs is the tenth novel in the wildly popular Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series. Trouble has a way of finding Mercy and this time she ends up alone and in Europe. From the non-linear timeline to the Doctor Who comments I loved Silence Fallen.

I devoured Silence Fallen in a single day and enjoyed seeing the supernatural creatures of the Tri-Cities work together.  The tale is broken up into chapters giving us both Mercy’s and Adam’s perspective. It is told in a non-linear fashion, but don’t worry, Briggs aids us with clever messages atop of each chapter.

There were so many things I loved about Silence Fallen

  • Mercy is smart, resourceful and badass. We learned more about Mercy and her abilities while she moved through Europe. She found herself in more than one pickle and handled it well.
  • We spend time with Adam and his wolf. Gads, I love the man and love that he is both diplomatic and a complete alpha. We see him engage in enemy territory and use the resources and friendships he and Mercy have formed.
  • Adam doesn’t go to Europe alone, and I loved seeing these characters work together. It was impressive to see this motley team of power address the enemy.
  • Doctor Who. I loved, loved, loved how Briggs weaved in Doctor Who references. I think I swooned when Adam knew who the doctors were. Briggs fed my inner nerd, and the whole character..yeah. AWESOME!
  • The Vampire empires and Wolf clans of Europe….have mercy! I loved the darker threads, the ghosts, and other creatures we encountered. It was fun, exciting and dangerous with just enough flair that I could not set the book down.
  • Despite the danger, Briggs managed to weave in the humor, snark, and bite I have come to expect.  I love these characters and cannot wait for more.

I highly recommend you grab Silence Fallen, snuggle up in your favorite chair and travel with the pack to Europe. You won’t be sorry.

About Ω Kimberly at Caffeinated Reviewer

I am an avid reader and coffee drinker. I love watching Dr. Who, Sherlock Holmes, Supernatural, and The Magicians. I love watching storms, especially curled up by a fire with a nice cup of coffee. I adore my hubby and have been married for twenty-eight years. We have three children, now all adults and two grandbabies happily referred to as the “royals” here at Caffeinated. We have lived in NJ, FL, VA and now reside in NE.

One of my favorite past times is chatting with my friends online about books. I started blogging to share my love of books with others and joined Barnes and Nobles book club forums and Goodreads. I love all genres. Some of my favorites are urban fantasy, romantic suspense, paranormal mysteries and post-apocalyptic/dystopian. Did I mention I am a series addict..in all genres!!!

For years I read only historical fiction and mainstream authors like Stephen King, Koontz, and Nora Roberts. I was bedridden for a spell when my husband began bringing me books from the library. I was working my way through Amanda Quick’s historical romances when he brought home her book, Second Sight. The first book in the Arcane Society series. I looked at it and went paranormal woo-woo?!? What? But guess what..I loved it (yep, now I have read them all) and from there I decided to step out of my comfort zone and began reading new authors and new genres…It’s a love affair that is still going on.

While I will always be a cover whore, I no longer limit myself to one genre. I read books from young adult to hot and steamy romances. Followers know I love a good horror or Zombie book.

In 2015 I launched, Caffeinated Services, and now work assisting authors. It is the perfect career combining my skills and passion for the written word.

I look forward to sharing books with you! Feel free to contact me, the coffee is always on.

  1. I still must do my re-read in the next week, but I’ll link up when I do. 🙂

    Loved getting Kimberly’s thoughts. It’s always fun to see what stands out to other readers. Yes, seeing Mercy, Adam, and the crew work outside their home turf showed they are strong no matter what. And, yes, getting all the European supernatural community background was fabulous. I was glad to finally see what all the fuss was about ‘the Lord of the Night’, Marsilea’s sire. I didn’t notice mentions of his the first time I read through, but this re-read I have seen a handful of mentions. Can’t wait to dig in and read this one soon. 🙂

  2. This is one of my all-time favorite installments! My husband and I re-listened to this in one day! My third time. I love the quote we’re supposed to guess at! It’s so true in real life if you’re ever taken, too! I was stunned by identity of a character that wasn’t revealed until the end the first time through, and I still marvel at it knowing who he was in the re-reads. Fab review Kimberly!

    I’ll link up my post once I’ve posted it on the blog. I did have my review up on Goodreads but I’d like my link to be for the blog. Can’t wait until the next one!

    • Yes I love them all. I finished Storm Cursed last night and it’s something special when you can read them all closer together. Storm Cursed is one of my favorites. Heck, they are all one of my favorites! Thanks for participating and I look forward to reading your review!
