Night Broken - Patricia Briggs

When her mate’s ex-wife storms back into their lives, Mercy knows something isn’t right. Christy has the furthest thing from good intentions—she wants Adam back, and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get him, including turning the pack against Mercy.

Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. As the bodies start piling up, she must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.

My thoughts:
The book was definitely better than book 6 and 7. But still not up to par with earlier books...just almost. Slowly getting there you know. So close.

The ex drama in this one, omg, I hate stupid bitches. Arghh, I wanna kick Christie. What is her problem!? You left him. Mercy is chill (even if stressed out of her mind). I would totally just have left cos that is more drama than one woman needs. Christie, Adam's ex wife shows up after her loved started stalking her and she tries to get everyone to turn against Mercy. It was stressful even to read about. Christie has never been a fav (how could she) but I truly hate her now.

So the bad guy in this one is the guy who is stalking Christie (I would totally have kicked her out and let him have her, damn she was mean.) He was insane, in a good way. Just out of his mind, raging, and wanting to tear the world apart. I also liked who he was...

And now I have to wait a year for book 9! BUT, since I am not gonna buy hardback (do you KNOW how many paperbacks that is?!) I have to wait 2 years since I want it in print. God damn me.

Conclusion:
I started reading this one morning and finished it a few hours later ;) 

Cover
Awesome

  4. Oh yes, I despised Christy. DESPISED. I wanted Adam to stand up to her a bit more and defend Mercy, but I loved how Mercy always took the high road. She's a better woman than I am ;-)

    1. I did admire her. I would totally have moved out and said F you all. But I did want Adam to stand up more for her

  5. I looooved this installment! I totally thought it was going to have so much angst with Adam's ex-wife back in the picture but Mercy and Adam are rock-solid and I adore them to pieces. Great review--so glad you enjoyed this one! :)

  7. I am two books behind on this series, and I am planning on doing audio and catching up. I am not looking forward to all the Chrissy drama in this one. Poor you having to wait 2 years.

    1. I know I could buy it in hardback but I am too cheap, that is only something I would do with one series at the moment

  10. Probably my favorite book of the series so far, but I wanted to smack Christie. And I wanted to smack Adam too for letting her manipulate him like that.

    I hate ex's and I hear Adam wasn't always great in this one. I know that would piss me off.

  17. i love the Mercy Thompson series but I am always behind because I can't bring myself to buy them in hardcover either. It was nice to read that you thought this one was better than the last two! I am hoping the series gets back to the level of the first books, cross my fingers!

  18. I love this series, I have loved every single book but this one. Sadly I didn't like this one much. I hated the "ex" storyline just to create conflict between Mercy and Adam.

  21. The paperback wait is terrible sometimes! I'm glad this book was better again. I dislike drama too, so I agree with you that she should've kicked the nasty girl to the curb.

  22. LOL. Yeah, the waiting sucks. I was one of the oddballs who liked the last couple of books way more than this one (and the earlier ones too). BUT. I do love that cover ;)

    1. So the ones that did not work for me worked for you? Interesting. I do not even know why does did not work as well, one should analyze

  23. Interesting. Book 6 was probably my favorite of the series. I started this one and after listening to the opening, I had to turn it off and I haven't gone back. I was so irritated and pissed at how the pack treats Mercy, I was done. I will go back eventually, but .... grrrr.
