Mercy is kidnapped. Took long enough into the series to happen. This is the one set in Europe. I vaguely remembered liking it a lot, for the sheer difference in scenery. And other things. Larry, for example. Great addition to the cast of characters!
And The Doctor—I missed it again! Next time I will pay more attention…

Complete time-line for the “Mercyverse”, including the short stories:
First read in 2017: ★★★★★
“I’m a mechanic; I fix things that are broken. I turn into a thirty-five-pound coyote. I have powerful friends. But when it comes right down to it, my real superpower is chaos.”
Changing points of view, that’s a new one for this series! I liked it, although I am not quite sure about the off-set timeline. It added an interesting dynamic, but probably made it unnecessarily complicated.
Nice revelation there at the end, makes me want to re-read the whole damn book right away… I missed all the clues, if there were any.
Some great character additions. Libor was fun. Lots of vampire politics, which I usually find tedious, but they were well done here. Great visuals, good plot, entertaining, three very late nights of not wanting to put this down…
