I have been a fan of the Mercy Thompson series from the very beginning, with MOON CALLED, and always look forward to a new entry into the series. I appreciated the change up last time around when the action took place in Europe, but it was enjoyable to get back to the home front in this latest entry.

This time around the plot focuses on the witch who the Pack uses, Elizaveta Arkadyevna Vyshnevetskaya (and that's a mouthful)! When her entire family is slain while she is out of the country, Elizaveta relies on Mercy and her pack connections to figure out who is using black magic for nefarious means in the area. The action in this installment excludes a number of the usual crew, but we readers don't mind, so long as they show back up in the next title in the series!

STORM CURSED has some descriptions of torture that were hard to read (and I skimmed); and though I know this has been present in other books in the series, it was a bit over the top for me, with human and animal torture included. That is why I have withheld one start, as a 5 star read is one I can recommend with NO reservation.

I'm thrilled that STORM CURSED made the LibraryReads list, and apologize that I couldn't get this one read before publication. This series always circulates well here, and I buy multiple copies when they are released. Thanks for the opportunity to read a digital galley! Always appreciated. ( )

*Trigger warning - animal abuse.

I stopped reading this book some time last year, but didn't remember why. When I saw the next book in the series was coming out, I though, "ooh, I need to catch up before starting Smoke Bitten (which came out in March, 2020). I got the book out again and settled back into the Urban Fantasy world of coyote walker/mechanic Mercy Thompson, and all the characters I've gotten to know over the years I've been reading the series.

Not too far into the book, I remembered why I stopped. There is a very graphic scene of animal abuse (puppies and kittens) which is done by some evil/bad witches to increase their powers.

Authors: if you decide to add animal torture to a book in a series, you are going to risk losing new fans and alienating old ones. I realize that it must be hard to come up with new plot points and conflict/tensions in a long-running series. But this is not the way to do it.

I skimmed that part of the book, and will say that, for the most part I enjoyed the rest of it. I have read this series since the first book came out, and if you are an Urban Fantasy fan, you will love it. As a librarian, I have recommended it to men and women both at the library, and never heard a negative comment about it.

In this latest book, Mercy and her pack discover that someone has been raising zombie animals, and proceed to investigate this unusual state of affairs. Which is when we get to the evil bad witches and their black magic with baby animals. After moving on from that part of the book, it proceeds fairly smoothly in the same manner of the rest in the series. Great dialogue, action scenes, and family dynamics among the pack.

I have the next book in the series, and do look forward to reading it. I don't give up on an author or series just because I'm disappointed with both, one or two times in 10 years. But, as I said, this is not the best way to add something new and different and shocking to a story. ( )

Since Mercy declared the Tri-Cities under the protection of the pack she's called on frequently to deal with problems. And her mate Adam is off in secret meetings with government to facilitate a meeting with the Fae. In one day she's dealing with a murdering goblin hiding in a barn, chatting with the 'Goblin King' Larry and then off to deal with miniature zombie goats. There's simultaneously a lot going on but the pacing is a bit slow.

She and the pack uncover black witches, plotting to move into their territory, as well as learning more about Sherwood and Mercy's new abilities. The government uses a loophole to drag the entire pack into handling security for their meeting with the Fae and eventually the two issues collide together.

I loved seeing Zee, Tad and Uncle Mike helping Mercy. This book left lots of hints for future stories. I read this straight through and really enjoyed it. It's not just about the paranormal action but the daily lives as well. Patricia Briggs brings these characters to life in such a way that you don't want to leave their world.

Awesome

Mercy is back and is as chaotic as ever. I love her and the pack. I liked seeing more of Sherwood Post. Coyote is as tricksy as ever. Now I have to wait for a whole other year for the next one. ( )
