Can’t Wait Wednesday : Smoke Bitten (Mercy Thompson #12) by Patricia Briggs

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : Smoke Bitten (Mercy Thompson #12) by Patricia Briggs. I’ve finally caught up with this series and so I’ll be anxiously awaiting the next instalment.

SMokebitten.jpgMercy Thompson, car mechanic and shapeshifter, faces a threat unlike any other in this thrilling entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

I am Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman.
My only “superpowers” are that I turn into a thirty-five pound coyote and fix Volkswagens. But I have friends in odd places and a pack of werewolves at my back. It looks like I’m going to need them.

Centuries ago, the fae dwelt in Underhill–until she locked her doors against them. They left behind their great castles and troves of magical artifacts. They abandoned their prisoners and their pets. Without the fae to mind them, those creatures who remained behind roamed freely through Underhill wreaking havoc. Only the deadliest survived.

Now one of those prisoners has escaped. It can look like anyone, any creature it chooses. But if it bites you, it controls you. It lives for chaos and destruction. It can make you do anything–even kill the person you love the most. Now it is here, in the Tri-Cities. In my territory.

It won’t, can’t, remain.

Not if I have anything to say about it.

Expected publication March 2020

    I have to make it a point to catch up on this series sometime soon. I think I’m 3 books behind and also want to read the companion series. I am so glad they have kept the artwork consistent with this one. All the covers are so great! And every time I see mention of this book, I always wish I had a mechanic like Mercy.

      I have only just caught up – and yes, I like that cover too and definitely like it when they keep the covers consistent.

    Ohhhh! That cover is amazing! And I still have not moved beyond book 1, so I must take some extreme measures… 😀 😀

    12 books?! My goodness! How many books are planned for this series?!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I don’t know tbh – I imagine at least another 3 and 4 given the current storylines. Although, for that matter, it could continue for however long the author wants because a lot of the storylines are unique – just with the same characters.

    I must let Himself know – he LOVES this series. I’m not quite so smitten…

  5. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Yes! Even though the series is getting a bit long, I always look forward to a new Mercy Thompson!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, it feels like we’re maybe starting to reach an end with this series – but then at the same time I would read every book in this series that is released.
      Lynn 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Me too 😀 (in fact I’d be sad to see it end, but at the same time feel like it’s starting to reach the end in some ways)

    Another reminder that I REALLY need to catch up on this series!
