Mercy Thompson, Book 13
Synopsis: The vampire Wulfe is missing. Since he’s deadly, possibly insane, and his current idea of “fun” is stalking Mercy, some may see it as no great loss. But when he disappears, the Tri-Cities pack is blamed. The mistress of the vampire seethe informs Mercy that the pack must produce Wulfe to prove their innocence, or the loose alliance between the local vampires and werewolves is over.
So Mercy goes out to find her stalker—and discovers more than just Wulfe have disappeared. Someone is taking people from locked rooms, from the aisles of stores, and even from crowded parties. And these are not just ordinary people but supernatural beings. Until Wulfe vanished, all of them were powerless loners, many of whom quietly moved to the Tri-Cities in the hope that the safety promised by Mercy and Adam’s pack would extend to them as well.
Who is taking them? As Mercy investigates, she learns of the legend of the Harvester, who travels by less-trodden paths and reaps the souls that are ripe with a great black scythe. . . .
Review: When I saw the release of a new novel in the Mercy Thompson series, I didn’t hesitate long! It’s a very cool series and each volume is a treat to read!
Wulfe is missing… That’s a problem, because this vampire is dangerous. But on top of that, the vampires say that the pack is responsible. So Mercy is going to have to use all her resources to find him and prove that they had nothing to do with it. However, in her quest, she discovers that Wulfe is not the only one to have disappeared and that Stefan is also among the victims. But who is responsible? It may well be that this person is far more dangerous than expected and that there are darker motives at work.
I had a great time with this novel and couldn’t wait to see how Mercy would fare.
It was a real pleasure to meet all the characters again and I’m curious to see what the author will offer us in the next volume!
