Waiting on Wednesday: River Marked by Patricia Briggs

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series is one series I cannot get enough of! River Marked is the 6th book in the series and hubs and I both have been waiting impatiently since we finished the last book, Silver Borne. I'm excited we'll meet other coyote shifters; I've wondered why we haven't before. I'm looking forward to seeing how her relationship with Adam grows and changes, and I missed Stephan in Silver Borne so I'm hoping he'll have a role here. For some reason I thought it was going to be on the shelves in January, but no, it's not out until March 1 *sob*!!! March is too far away!!!

From Goodreads:
Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She’s never known any others of her kind. Until now.

An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River—one that her father’s people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help…

  1. I'm curious about this one too. Although I will admit the last one wasn't my most fave and I'm wondering where this series is starting to go. Will still likely buy this one though!

    Here's my WoW

  2. Dang so confused! Why do I have Jan too...and hardback..omg, when does it come in PB then? *cries*

  3. I had it on my side bar as January!!!

    DAMN IT!!!!!!!

  4. They keep changing the release date. Hopefully they won't change it anymore. AFter SIlver Borne I got really excited for this one and the description makes me want to read it so bad =D

  5. Hey honey, just popping in to see how you are doing?! I am hoping that all is well for you and the family!
    Hugs to you honey!

    We need to plan our next "gathering," lol!

  6. I just want some serious Adam/Mercy lovin'... we got it at the end of 'Silverborne', so I hope Briggs carries that smuttiness over to 'Rivermarked'

  7. Can't wait for more of Mercy and Adam! I really missed Stephan in the last book too!

  8. I might have to give in and give this author a try. I see her books pimped all over the place! :)

  9. Crap, I need to read the previous book. I'm so behind!

  10. Apparently we will see Stefan albeit briefly in this book. Mike said she drops in to see him :D

    Also right now there is a couple of snippets but they wont be for long at the Hurog forums. That might help with the delayed wait :P :D

  11. Jessica: You didn't like the last one? I loved it! I hope the next one is better for you :)

    Blodeuedd: Oh my goodness, paperback has probably been pushed back too :(

    Mandi: Glad to know I wasn't alone!!

    Mariya: If they change it again I'm going to cry, lol.

    Cecile: Doing well - hope to see you soon!!

    Danielle: Oh yes, def want Adam/Mercy lovin'. *crosses fingers*

    Larissa: Can't wait!!!

    Tricia: I missed Stephan too, I love him!

    Ing: Oh yes, her books are wonderful!!

    KC: Ooohhh - Silverborne was great!
