Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
For this week, I've (quite predictably) chosen the new installment in one of my favorite urban fantasy series, Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs.
Title: Night Broken
Series: Mercy Thompson
Release: March 4th 2014
Publisher: Ace Hardcover
Format: Hardcover, 352 pgs
Pre-order: The Book Depository
#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson series has been hailed as “one of the best” (Fiction Vixen). Now, Mercy must deal with an unwanted guest—one that brings a threat unlike anything she’s ever known.An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from her new boyfriend. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s ex is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.
If you haven't met Mercy, you don't know what you're missing. I'm a bit anxious about Chrsty finally entering the picture; I like Mercy and Adam together so much, and I love that the pack has finally started accepting her. I would hate to see that ruined because of a jealous ex wife, but I trust Patty to give us a happy ending.
March seems so far away, though...
What are you guys excited about?
