Waiting On Wednesday (41)

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release.

"Night Broken" by Patricia Briggs

This book is to be released March 11th, 2014. It is the eighth book in the Mercy Thompson series.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs's Mercy Thompson series has been hailed as "one of the best" (Fiction Vixen). Now, Mercy must deal with an unwanted guest--one that brings a threat unlike anything she's ever known.

An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam's ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from her new boyfriend. Adam isn't the kind of man to turn away a person in need--and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam's house, Mercy can't shake the feeling that something about the situation isn't right.

Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she's willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam's pack against Mercy.

Mercy isn't about to step down without a fight, but there's a more dangerous threat circling. Christy's ex is more than a bad man--in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear the whole world apart.

I read the first few books in the Mercy Thompson series and absolutely adored it. I need to catch up on these books, but the synopsis for this one had my hackles raised. I hate women who come back into the picture only to throw their ex's, who is happy with someone else, life into turmoil. So I am sure I will be gnashing my teeth and growling under my breath through this entire book but I can't wait to read it anyway.

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
