Week 17 Review: Storm Cursed

From Goodreads:
In this new instalment in the No. 1 New York Times bestselling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves . . . 

My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.

And a coyote shapeshifter . . . And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.

Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn't stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae.

The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death.

But we are pack, and we have given our word. We will die to keep it.

My first review of Storm Cursed
My Review:
This book was just so fantastic, so amazing, and yeah, I just had to read it again! I knew after I finished reading it the first item, that I would have to read it again, to pick up the small details that I missed the first time. I didn't expect to read it again so soon-and before it was published-but I had a free week, so I had to read it!

So like Burn Bright, this book takes events that happened in previous entries of the series, and brings them together. The Harvesty witch family, we learned in Burn Bright, had been the silent partners in the events of Moon Called. But that's not all the trouble they've caused our gang. As we learned what they've done, what they were doing, it felt like the story lines were being pulled tighter together, to form a tapestry of a story arc, one that's coming to a climax. I can't wait for that to happen! Though I wouldn't necessarily want the series to end!

Honestly, even after reading this book before, I was still surprised at how nefarious and plotting the bad guys were. Their planning just took the cake, of how many ways that they could win. It was pretty relentless!

There's one big change in the lineup of allies that Mercy has to call on. It's not an insurmountable gap, but it's going to noticed and felt. Especially for the reason why the change happened. Which is getting really deep into spoiler territory, so I'm going to stop now.

Ok, there's this one funny line that I have to quote, but I won't put it fully out, because I don't want to spoil. "'Okay,' said Person, cheerfully. 'Happy to oblige by distracting the blank with my grisly remains.'" Yeah. This is just too funny to me!

Loved reading this book so much, and I can't wait for more from this world!
