Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs

This weekend I finished reading the latest novel in the Mercy Thompson series (one of my favorite urban fantasy series), Silver Bourne, by Patricia Briggs.

When mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book she'd previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down.


It seems the book contains secret knowledge-and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands. And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side-leaving Mercy to cover for him, lest his own father declare Sam's life forfeit.


All in all, Mercy has had better days. And if she isn't careful, she might not have many more to live...


Definitely a fantastic new installment in the Mercy series.  I was enthralled from the first page until the end.  And of course anyone out there who loves urban fantasy should definitely be reading this series.

Check out the sample chapter.

It's great to see that lately quite a few competitions are open INTERNATIONALLY...I'm sure that others like me don't feel so isolated.

I get a little confused with all the ways "fantasy" in broken into sub-genres, so I noticed when you called the Mercy Thompson series "urban fantasy". Having driven through that area many times, I've always thought the series "rural fantasy". Guess my mind is just to literal.

I loved this book - Ms. Briggs did it again as far as I'm concerned. I love Mercy, and Adam,and Samuel, and....you get the picture!

Heh, it's Borne, not Bourne (I kept correcting myself too. Is it the BOURNE IDENTITY/ULTIMATUM/ etc movies? I dunno).

Kay, "urban fantasy" is the subgenre for fiction with fantasy or paranormal elements which are set in a modern day/realistic (ie urban) setting. (like Laurell K Hamilton, Jim Butcher, Kim Harrison, etc).

Janicu, eek! #agentfail

This sounds right up my alley. It sounds fantastic. My poor kids are going to have to go to a community college because mommy spent all their college money on books! Hehe. Just kidding. But Ms. Briggs is definitely on my list to read!

So many amazing books, so little time to read them...

Thanks for bringing her work to our attention!
