My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic. And a coyote shapeshifter. And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.
Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn't stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae.
The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death.
But we are pack, and we have given our word. We will die to keep it.
Angela was nice enough to let me share her review, originally posted here.
I love the Mercy Thompson series, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the latest release.
Briggs delivers yet again another amazing story in the Mercy Thompson series. She brought an action-packed tale with hate groups, black witches, friends to enemies, lose, and more.
Mercy is facing the consequences of making the Tri-Cities a safe haven. She’s also stuck having to act as liaison between the humans and fae while Adam and The Pack play bodyguards to the humans. She will have to manage many things and make some difficult choices.
We are treated to some new and old characters with The Pack and all our favorite characters come to life in Storm Cursed. We learn more about Sherwood Post. Zee is present, as is Uncle Mike and the Goblin King. Even Wulfe pops in.
As always Briggs captured me. The plot is well written and action-packed. I love that we are so far into the series and it’s still going strong with each book feeling fresh. It’s a well crafted story and the author made me cringe, laugh out loud, cry, and gasp.
The Mercy Thompson series continues to grow and get better with each book. Mercy is becoming stronger, The Pack is evolving, and the world continues to build. I can’t wait for the next installment.

Observations and questions you shared from Silence Fallen:
(Thank you so much for sharing!)
- Bran’s feelings for Mercy was a stunner for me.
- I was surprised by the dr. Who references. The video games the pack plays have been mentioned in many books, but I didn’t recall Dr. Who before. I’m a Who fan, even like the latest female doctor, but the story lines were awfully preachy.
- Really was amazed by how Bran hid his identity until the very end. That’s some power!
Quotes you readers shared from Silence Fallen:
(Thank you for sharing!)
“No,” he said softly. “I belong to Mercy.”
“People who stand in the way of my mate’s ability to get herself out of trouble often feel like they were hit by buses. I think this might be the first time it is literally true, though.”
We are doing one book every 4 weeks, posting on Fridays.
