10 Characters in the Mercy Thompson Series You Must Meet
Silence Fallen - Patricia Briggs

So this is a round-up I did for B&N SciFi, which is a little listicle-y because it's number 10 in a series and nobody much cares about, like, an actual review at that point. Either you'll read it because you're on the hook, or you won't.


But coming up with the list kinda reminded me how kinda terrible the Mercy Thompson series is about relationships between female characters. I think there's a big step forward in Silence Broken -- Mercy has real conversations with Honey, that Russian witch lady, and Marselia -- but that doesn't precisely make up for the previous 9 novels. It ends up being one of those bummers where I pretty much like everything about a series but a huge fucking gaping hole where normal human interaction should exist between people of the same gender, but alas, it doesn't. Or it does a little not, but. 


Oh, but as per the actual plot: I thought this one unstuck some stuff that had been, um, stuck, in the few previous. Mercy ends up kidnapped into Europe, so we get a whole new political and literal landscape to deal with. I though it shook up some things that needed shaking up in the Mercyverse.

The Quality of Silence - Rosamund Lupton

The Quality of Silence is completely different to the type of books I usually read, but I may well choose others in this genre again.

The book covered a number of different topic areas including things like deafness, stalking, parenting, etc. Most of which had me forming opinions and often arguing with the characters. I found the portrayal of deafness, and the strength of the youngster in dealing with it, using Twitter to give her a voice.

The stalking element had me freaking out, with tangible fear for Yasmin and her daugher. Although I was fearful for the two of them throughout. I even learned loads about the Arctic and the native wildlife, which was fascinating.

The book is not to badly paced, although I did find it a tad slow and tedious in places. Yasmin and her daughter are both well developed and believable too.

With the fear, suspense and a few surprises, you’ll be glued to this book from beginning to end. A great read for anyone. Enjoy.

NB: I received this book free in return for an honest review.
