Sometimes as a series continues, the later books can begin to get a little boring and contain few surprises. But not the Mercy Thompson series. You managed to surprise and shock me mightily. In fact, I think Fire Touched contains one of the biggest shockers in the series and we are now up to book 9.

Fans ought not to worry, the shock is something which, when one thinks about it at all, is entirely organic to the plot and makes sense and it happens fairly early in the piece. But it’s a big shakeup in the Mercyverse and the ramifications of it will ripple into the next Alpha & Omega book and at the least, the next Mercy book too.  And no, I’m not going to say what it is.  Even though it happens in the first third of the book and usually I’d consider that fair game for a review, I really think it’s best experienced without spoilers.


Which leaves me with the dilemma of what I can say about the plot. Here goes.

The story begins with Mercy and Adam getting a call from the local police; there is a troll on the Cable Bridge between Pasco and Kennewick, damaging cars and lives have already been lost. Can they help?  Of course, Mercy and Adam being who they are, do indeed rush to the bridge, together with other pack members who are close at hand. Mercy’s fae walking stick has recently turned up again and it decides to go along for the ride also.  The fight with the troll takes a toll on the humans and the wolves but they are ultimately successful. Aid comes in a surprising form; a young human boy, who, to all appearances, looks about 10 years old, but who was taken by the fae possibly centuries ago. He has been “fire touched” and has the gift of fire. He is also unexpectedly helpful to Joel (pronounced Hoe-el), who readers will remember was turned into a tibicena in Night Broken. Aiden, the fire touched, asks the pack for sanctuary from the fae (from whom he has escaped) for a period 24 hours.
