Blood Bound (Mercy Thompson #2)
by Patricia Briggs
Under the rule of science, there are no witch burnings allowed, no water trials or public lynchings. In return, the average law-abiding, solid citizen has little to worry about from the things that go bump in the night. Sometimes I wish I was an average citizen...
Mechanic Mercy Thompson has friends in low places-and in dark ones. And now she owes one of them a favor. Since she can shapeshift at will, she agrees to act as some extra muscle when her vampire friend Stefan goes to deliver a message to another of his kind.
But this new vampire is hardly ordinary-and neither is the demon inside of him.
I can't believe it took me so long to read these books. I feel ashamed of myself. This second book was better than the first by far and the first was pretty awesome. I know that a lot of you have read this series and a lot of you haven't. I'm going to try to review this with out giving too much away.
Everything in this books gets elaborated on a lot more. We're starting to learn a little bit more about the fae and we learn a lot about the vampires. Stefan asks Mercy to do him a favor. Little did she know that this favor was going to turn into a whole lot more. There is a vampire demon hybrid on the loose and he's causing havoc all over the Tri-Cities. Mercy has to meet with the seethe, Stefan is on trial and his memory was changed by the demon. All kinds of hoopla ensues while trying to hunt down this killer. The werewolves get involved because it's Adam's territory and one of the werewolves gets badly injured. It's seriously a hot mess.
I loved this book. There were times that I was absolutely terrified. I kid you not. I was scared. There were times when I just wanted to hug Adam and make him love me. I'm afraid I'm jumping on Amber I's bandwagon here. Adam is absolutely dreamy. I love Mercy, her character is awesome. She's bad ass and sarcastic. Who could ask for more? I love Stefan and Sam. Although, I want Sam to back off Mercy so her and Adam can get together. Haha. Hopefully I get what I want. I'm on to the third book. I can't wait to read it and share my thoughts.
