5 Kiss Review: Shifting Shadows: Stories from the World of Mercy Thompson (Mercy Thompson) by Patricia Briggs


Mercy Thompson’s world just got a whole lot bigger…
A collection of all-new and previously published short stories featuring Mercy Thompson, “one of the best heroines in the urban fantasy genre today” (Fiction Vixen Book Reviews), and the characters she calls friends…
Includes the new stories…
“Roses in Winter”
…and reader favorites

“Fairy Gifts”
“Alpha and Omega”
“Seeing Eye”
“The Star of David”
“In Red, with Pearls”

My Review:

Shifting Shadows brings home how much I love the world of Mercy Thompson. All of my favorite characters made an appearance throughout the whole book.

Fan favorites like Bran Cornick, Samuel Cornick, Warren Smith, and Kyle Brooks, plus mystery man Ben Shaw (my new personal favorite), and of course Mercy and Adam.

No story is complete without those two. I gotta admit that I liked the story of Moira and Tom's first meeting quite a bit. Learning about Bran, Samuel, and Ariana's much hinted at story was like eating my favorite dark chocolate bar and diving in for more.

I think for me Ben's story hit home even more than I expected it to. Ben's history of abuse and understanding and why he dislikes women as he does was completely a new insight for me.

But the story that tipped the iceberg for me was Kara's. Kara and Asil are two very misunderstood characters who need all the TLC they can get and then some. Kara's story nearly ripped my heart out. Being the youngest werewolf and female can't be an easy thing for a teenage girl in a world of monsters.

I truly believe that Asil gave Kara a gift that will have lasting effects to come. I can’t say enough good things about this book. Shifting Shadows is a must read for fans of Mercy Thompson.
