Another fantastic deception of Mercy! I did not know you were on DA! I was just google searching cover artists I liked & saw you had a DA account. :love: :love: Mercy and all the cover art on the books. Bone Crossed was one of my favorite covers!! The lighting and the rain were really dynamic! Although I think that's also the last one I read. :D

Patricia Briggs has been my favorite author from the first moment my brother introduced me to Moon Called. And I really loved Shifting Shadows, there were only a couple that I hadn't read of the short stories in it, lol. I cannot wait for the next one to see how Mercy is doing in her "new" business of restoring antique cars. (I've thought for quite a while now that that's what she should do since regular mechanicking isn't paying the bills half the time)
