Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes—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. 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, old ghosts rise...

Mercy Mercy Mercy ..... What did you get yourself into now?

A simple trip to the corner store for chocolate chips, seems easy right. Not for Mercy. Trouble finds this little coyote shifter wherever she goes. 
he is kidnapped by a very powerful vampire, why is the question basically because he can. Trying to prove that Adam cannot protect the Tri-Cities. To me this was a lame plot and I absolutely love this series. Putting the plot aside. Mercy finds herself alone, her magic blocked by witchcraft, and her mate and pack bonds severed. She is naked and scared. But Mercy always finds a way.

She escapes for the Vampire only to be on a hunt to find allies, oh yeah and she is in Europe. What the heck Europe that is a long way from home little coyote.

She is in coyote form since a naked woman might draw attention running down the streets of Prague. With no money, no bonds, no clothes, and no way to communicate Mercy must steal to survive.

She finds herself confronting and seeking sanctuary from the scary Alpha Wolf who has a problem with Bran (sort-a kind-a Mercy's sorta step-dad). Prague is filled with Ghosts and this actually helps Mercy get the sanctuary she seeks. Before she can reach her destination and safehouse her and her werewolf bodyguards are attacked by another Vampire Seethe. 

Adam is on the way to rescue his wife and confront the Lord of Night and the one responsible for Mercy's disappearance. Kidnapped a second time by the other Vampire Seethe she is trapped. No way out so she can only do what she must to survive and find her way back to Adam. 

She calls upon the dead and reincarnates a GOLEM. It is wrong in so many ways from asking the dead for help to reincarnating the Golem that can and will destroy the world if given the chance. But Mercy is out of options.

Again we see Adam being a bad-ass to a point but in this story he is more political and subdued. I like it when he just is sweet with Mercy and rips everyone else to shreds to be honest. This story had some action but I did find myself wanting more and I did have a little trouble following along. Again that entire COYOTE (dad) thing always throws me off. There is a little TWIST at the very end and we see that Bran does still care and love Mercy even though he abandoned her twice. 

That little coyote gets into so much trouble. Good thing she is always pretty good at getting out of it. And it helps to be married to an Alpha Werewolf who is a badass.

Rating: 3 1/2 stars 

Happy Reading!
