Book Funk Over - Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

This is a adult urban fantasy novel (Rated R)

(Four and a half Adam Hearts)


In the #1 New York Times bestselling Mercy Thompson novels, the coyote shapeshifter has found her voice in the werewolf pack. But when Mercy's bond with the pack and her mate is broken, she'll learn what it truly means to be alone...

Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe...

Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise...


I love this series. I can’t say it enough. This book took me out of my book funk. And I’d started many books by beloved authors, but I couldn’t get into a one and I started and stopped several times.

This book I’m proud to say held my attention from the start. I listened in two days.

I love Mercy and I loved getting Adam’s POV. The story was interesting creating questions and answering others to keep my focus solely on this book.

My only problem was with the middle when the author goes out of sequence. She makes not of it several times. At the beginning and when it happens so the reader is well aware. However, for me, I think that going out of sequence didn’t enhance the story. It didn’t provide that aha moment. In fact, I think it made things more predictable than less. It would have been better if she would have just gone linear.

That’s my only complaint and why I can’t give it perfect marks. Otherwise, I just wish there had been more. Now, what is a girl to read?

One thing to note --> This book brought me out of my blogger funk because it was that good.

Audio Review

Lorelei King narrates. I often forget I first heard her read this series. Luckily, this time I heard only Mercy’s voice and not Charlie Davidson. It’s interesting how similar but not these two series are. My only complaint is addition of a new narrator who is fantastic by the way. However, when he spoke as Adam, I didn’t buy it. He didn’t sound as alpha as Lorelei made him. Which made it hard to accept. But his other characters and accents were flawless.

My Book Boyfriend is ADAM.
