We know we have tried to entice you with the outstanding Patricia Briggs series (Mercy Thompson). We did a review…we gave you snippets from her first book to tease you before her latest book (River Marked) came out. So…in case that teaser wasn’t enough to convince you…we have brought you a NEW teaser from Moon Called because…you just gotta read it!
Moon Called by Patricia Briggs
“I’ll give him a call,” I said with relief.
He picked up on the second ring. “Warren, here. Is this you, Mercy? Where have you been? Do you know where Adam and Jesse are?”
“Adam was hurt,” I said. “The people who did it took Jesse.”
“Tell him not to let anyone else know,” Said Samuel.
“Who was that?” Warren’s tone was suddenly cool.
“Samuel,” I told him. “Bran’s son.”
“Is this a coup?” Warren asked.
“No,” answered Adam from the backseat. “At least not on Bran’s part.”
“Excuse me,” I said. “But this is my phone call. Would you all please pretend that it is a private conversation? That includes you, Warren. Quit listening to the other people in my van.”
“All right,” agreed Warren. Having heard Adam, his voice relaxed into its usual lovely south Texas drawl. “How are you today, Mercy?” he asked sweetly, but as he continued his voice became gradually sharper. “And have you heard the startling news that our Alpha’s house was broken into and he and his daughter disappeared? That the only clue is the phone message left on the damned Russian witch’s phone? A message that she has refused to let anyone else listen to? Rumor has it that the message is from you, and no one can find you either.”
Samuel leaned his head back, closed his eyes, and said, “Tell him you’ll explain when we get there.”
I smiled sweetly. “I’m doing better all the time, Warren. Thank you for asking. Montana is nice, but I don’t recommend a November vacation unless you ski.”
“Haven’t put on skis for twenty years,” murmured Warren, sounding a little happier. “Has Adam taken up skiing during this jaunt of yours to Montana?”
“He has skis,” I said, “but his health wasn’t up to it this time. I brought back a doctor, but the two of us found out that we need to go out tonight and were wondering if you were up for a little nursing.”
“Glad to,” said Warren. “I don’t work tonight, anyway. Did you say Jesse’s been kidnapped?”
“Yes. And for right now, we need you to keep it under your hat.”
