“I think it’s safe to say that this series continues to get better with each book. Mercy becomes stronger as a character, the pack shows evolution and growth and the world continues to build across several books. With so much going on, this book is packed full of non-stop excitement.”
~ Under the Covers

I love returning to this world. Not only it is comforting to be back into Mercy’s head but there’s just something about this world that always excites me. There’s never a dull moment, especially when a rampaging troll starts causing mayhem. It’s up to Mercy and her merry crew to tame him. But that seems to be the least of her problems when she discovered that a human child has been stolen by the fae years ago. This sparks a dangerous war between the humans and the fae, throwing Mercy right in the middle of the havoc.

Though the story is narrated through Mercy, Briggs isn’t selfish enough to keep things only about her. We get plenty of glimpses of the pack, learning more about each of them and even some of their backstory. While in the earlier books Mercy seemed like an outsider before, she is now fully cemented as part of the group. You can sense that her connection with the others is as strong as ever and this familial love adds much depth to the story.

I think it’s safe to say that this series continues to get better with each book. Mercy becomes stronger as a character, the pack shows evolution and growth and the world continues to build across several books. With so much going on, this book is packed full of non-stop excitement.

Fans of Anne Bishop’s The Others series would absolutely adore this series. The writing style isn’t that much different and if you enjoy the concept of shifters and pack politics then both these series offer something to you. While Bishop’s series can run a little dark sometimes, Briggs’ does also have its bleak moments. But if you’re a loyal fan and have come this far, I have no doubt that you’ll find FIRE TOUCHED as enjoyable as I have.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

The action is definitely kept paced throughout. You don’t get a lot of downtime. You’re so right. The evolution of Mercy’s character really shows more in each book.

And I feel like the action is done in a very good way. It’s not like it’s crazy explosions happening left and right. Everything has a purpose and it’s executed well.
