Tensions between the fae and humans are coming to a head. And when coyote shapeshifter Mercy and her Alpha werewolf mate, Adam, are called upon to stop a rampaging troll, they find themselves with something that could be used to make the fae back down and forestall out-and-out war: a human child stolen long ago by the fae.
Defying the most powerful werewolf in the country, the humans, and the fae, Mercy, Adam, and their pack choose to protect the boy no matter what the cost. But who will protect them from a boy who is fire touched?
I’ve never been totally sold on Adam, especially after his behavior or lack of behavior in Night Broken and the way his ex-wife treated Mercy. He also has let the pack disrespect Mercy on several occasions, so I’ve never really liked him as a partner for Mercy. I was for her and Samuel to end up with each other earlier in the series. But after having Adam FINALLY put his foot down in Fire Touched I can start to get on his side.
Another than the fact that Adam finally manned up I wasn’t very impressed with this installment. It felt like a filler book. But I’m not ready to jump ship on Mercy just yet. I’ll give her one more book and at some point, I want to do a reread of the series because two years between books give me too much time to forget things. I’m hoping before the next installment I can binge read because I miss the time when Adam was trying to court Mercy.
I really think I’m more of an Alpha & Omega series gal, I’ve never been bored with Charles and Anna.
I couldn’t find a clip for Fire Touched….
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
Reading this book contributed to these challenges:
