Storm Cursed
(Mercy Thompson #11)

by Patricia Briggs

Just as awesome, if not more so, than you should have come to expect from Patricia Briggs.

A few quick bullet points of why I liked it:

  • The action starts with inexplicable zombie miniature goats, before shifting into a complex story of intrigue, human corruptibility, and betrayal.

  • There were times that the tone just felt creepy. (Yes, I'm counting that as a good thing.)

  • Mercy, who is a coyote shapeshifter with other bizarre magical powers, reacts the way any rational person would when faced with similar situations, and despite being a magical being, is quite relatable.
