Review: Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs

Review: Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs Burn Bright Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: Burn Bright is another fascinating and thrilling installment in the Alpha and Omega series.  Gikany and Una were fascinated by the more in-depth look into some of the relationships in the Mercy Thompson World. This series is one of our all-time favorites: the world-building, the characters, and the ever-changing politics – it’s all captivating.  The contrast of the Alpha and Omega series is that we experience Mercy’s world from a completely different perspective (sometimes several).  There is an interesting insight presented early in this novel about Bran.  In fact, though he is absent for...

Review: Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Review: Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs Silence Fallen Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: As complete and utter Mercy Thompson fans, suffice to say we loved Silence Fallen.  However, it was a bit different, not only where the story goes, but in the telling. Adam and Mercy have come a long, long way.  They are an awesome team.  But a lot of time has passed since Mercy has had to truly face trouble on her own.  In Silence Fallen, Mercy does just that.  She is abducted and held against her will in another country.  As she strives to escape, Mercy finds herself from one hot pan into another. ...

Review: Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs

Review: Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs Fire Touched Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A+ What We’re Talking About: Ms. Briggs has amazed us again!  Gikany and Una have waited with baited breath for this latest installment in the Mercy Thompson series.  Fire Touched is another dynamic novel in this rich world.

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Night Broken

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Night Broken Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks. It’s time to… Audiobook review: Night Broken Author: Patricia Briggs Narrator: Lorelei King Audio Speed: 1.25x Series: Mercy Thompson #8 Genre: Urban Fantasy Source: borrowed NOTE: This review may contain spoilers from the previous books in the series. I started to listen to Night Broken almost eight months ago and quit after the opening scene. I realized that I needed a break from the Mercy Thompson series because I couldn’t take the pack’s treatment of Mercy any longer. The fact that after seven books and the countless times she’s helped them, the pack still treated Mercy with utter disregard and dislike completely ticked me off. This,...

Review: Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs

Review: Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs Dead Heat Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A+ What We’re Talking About: Dead Heat is the fourth book in the phenomenal Alpha and Omega series.  We were stunned by the tightness of this story and how seemly different elements were used to weave a gripping and pathos-rich story together. Three years have passed since Charles and Anna mated.  They have grown together as a couple and we have loved their journey, though it is far from over.  After the revelations made at the end of the last novel, Fair Game, we wondered what was next.  Ms. Briggs did not disappoint.  Charles and Anna are still growing...

Review: Night Broken by Patricia Briggs

Review: Night Broken by Patricia Briggs Night Broken Author: Patricia Briggs  Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una are huge Patricia Briggs fans and we absolutely adore the Mercy Thompson series.  The latest release, Night Broken, was different from the previous offerings and yet just as wonderful! Although it is possible to read Night Broken as a stand-alone, we don’t recommend it. The series is so well written, we suggest picking up Moon Called, the first in the series, to introduce you to this world.  This is a very rich and well-woven series.  Night Broken is so wonderful because of the journeys that have brought us to this point....
