Review: Soul Taken by Patricia Briggs

It’s incredible how quickly one can get taken up in a story. I’ve been reading the Mercy Thompson series for years, yet it doesn’t feel that way. Soul Taken is the thirteenth installment in the series, and part of me hopes it’ll be far from the last. Continue reading
