A Mercy Thompson Novel
by Patricia Briggs

#1 New York Times bestselling author of Bone Crossed

 * * *

Praise for Patricia Briggs’ Bone Crossed:
“Briggs makes her hardcover debut with the fourth novel in the increasingly popular Mercy Thompson series. Mercy is not just another cookie-cutter tough-chick urban fantasy heroine; she's got a lot of style and substance and an intriguing backstory. . . . Highly recommended.”
Library Journal
“Briggs makes a well-deserved move into hardcover with the rousing fourth adventure for kick-ass were-coyote auto mechanic Mercedes Thompson. . . . the preternatural culture of vampire seethes and wolf pack politics is deeply intriguing. Briggs provides plenty of detail about Mercy's complex world without boring info-dumps, satisfying both new and longtime readers.”
Publishers Weekly

Mercy Thompson returns in SILVER BORNE (Ace Hardcover; April 3rd, 2010; $31.00), the highly anticipated fifth book in Patricia Briggs' #1 New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series. Briggs’ rich storylines and complex characters are sure to excite fans and entice new readers—with kick-butt Mercy Thompson as the novel’s heroine, you never know what to expect! 

Mercy, car mechanic and shapeshifter, lives in a world in which witches, werewolves, and vampires live amongst ordinary people. In SILVER BORNE, Mercy is about to learn that while secrets can be dangerous, those who seek them are deadly. When she attempts to return a powerful fae book she’d previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore has closed down and its owner is missing. The magical fae will do anything to keep what’s in the book a secret, but when Mercy’s friend Samuel struggles with his wolf side, things get even more complicated. Mercy has to cover for Samuel and try to appease the implacable fae, but if she isn’t careful, her life may be at risk…

After the incredible success of Patricia Briggs’ Iron Kissed (2008), a #1 New York Times bestseller, readers could not get enough of the Mercy Thompson saga.  Bone Crossed, the fourth book and first hardcover in the series, debuted at #3 on the New York Times list, where it stayed on the list for four weeks!

  1. My favorite cover is Bone Crossed. She looks so serene, but tough as heck.

  2. The only title I have read is 'Bone Crossed', but I would love to read more. All of the covers are great!
    Please enter me in the contest.

  3. Great giveaway.please count me in.

    I have the first 4 books in this series and the two Alpha and Omega books,but I've only read Cry Wolf and really liked it.Loved Charles.
    As for covers I like the new one Silver Borne.


  4. I love all of Patricia's books, but I think Iron Kissed is my favorite bacause of the amazing way she handled a really touchy subject at the end of the book. Not many authors could have pulled it off!


  5. I love all the covers! Dan Dos Santos is an excellent fantasy cover artist! (I love the cover he did for Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson) I would have to say my favourite of Patricia Briggs' series is Bone Crossed.

    Great giveaway!


  6. I think my fav is Moon Called, I love that coyote foot print tattoo she has! I can't wait to read Silver Borne!


  7. I've heard a lot of good things about Patricias books, but hadn't had the chance to read them yet... wasn't sure if I would like them, but recently a good friend told me I would love the series and should give it a try... so, we will see :)
    greetings, Ina

  8. I love the books. My bf bought me moon called as a gift and anything from this series is on my must buy list. However, I don't like the way the cover Mercy is dressed all trampy and covered in tattoos when the real Mercy seems more modest and only has one little tattoo.

  9. Bone Crossed is my favourite.

  10. Cry Wolf looks cool. I love the tattoos on the girls on the covers too
