Review: Silence Fallen (Mercy Thompson #10)

the coyote shapeshifter has found her voice in the werewolf pack. But when Mercy’s bond with the pack—and her mate—is broken, she’ll learn what it truly means to be alone...

Silence Broken, by Patricia Briggs, is the tenth novel in the Mercy Thompson series. Attacked and abducted in her home territory, coyote shapeshifter Mercy Thompson finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. Mercy manages to escape in coyote form—only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe. Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which with little time to waste. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague (Czechoslovakia), old ghosts rise. Mercy has no time to waste! With tensions brewing, she needs to be at her best mentally and physically to survive this nightmare.

This novel is beyond epic proportions. Briggs has exceeded her own previous novels! Mercy Thompson is kidnapped and taken across the ocean where she meets a powerful vampire master. This situation tests not only her husband Adam's endurance but also her own survival skills in a strange land. What I loved about this novel is that Mercy is at her most vulnerable away from her comrades in the Tri-Cities area. Yet she courageously escapes the clutches of the vampires to seek shelter with allies. Her strong will to live and survive against the odds is what makes her such a great protagonist and heroine. Old world meets new world. Mercy and friends make new friends in Europe while they uncover more dark secrets that could threaten the supernatural world. More importantly, Adam and Mercy's deep love for each other is strengthened in this ordeal. I enjoyed this addition to the series. 

Stay tuned for the next Mercy Thompson novl, Storm Cursed.
