Spend Some Time in Mercy's Garage

The third book in Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson series is out, "Iron Kissed" I have been looking forward to it, and it has been worth the wait.

For those unfamiliar with the series, Mercy Thompson is a Native American shapeshifter who, after being raised by werewolves, moves to the Tri-Cities area and becomes an auto mechanic. She also get caught up in the supernatural politics that take place when the various Fae, shapeshifters and undead living in America decide to reveal their presence to the "normal" world.

After the first two books Mercy is back, trying to choose between the two Alpha werewolves for whom she has feelings, avoid the vampire coven that she has intereacted with in a deadly way and just live a quiet life.

She is called by her friend/mentor Siebold Adelbertsmiter (Zee for short) to come and help investigate a series of murders on the Fae reservation. Things quickly become complicated when Zee is framed by the rulers of the Fae for the murders and left to rot in jail.

The book drew me in , as did the first two in the series. I like the characters and the way that the interactions between the vaious supernatural groups are done. Visiting with Mercy is like visiting with an old friend, if your old friends can turn into animals, fight vampires and solve mysteries.
