MERCY THOMPSON SERIES

Mercedes is Volkswagen mechanic living in the Tri-Cities area of Washington. Her Native American heritage has somehow given her the ability to take the form of a coyote at will. She's surrounded by far more powerful supernatural beings, including werewolves, vampires and an assortment of fey.

Mercy Thompson Book 1 | Moon Called
Mercy gives a job to a homeless boy, who happens to be a werewolf. When he turns up murdered, she vows to figure out who did it.

Mercy Thompson Book 2 | Blood Bound
Stephan is a vampire with a thing for Scooby-Doo, and Mercy owes him a favor. There's a new vampire in town, who can apparently alter the memories of those around him. Since Mercy is resistant to vampiric magic, she's brought along as an impartial observer. What could go wrong?

Mercy Thompson Book 3 | Iron Kissed
A series of murders on the fae reservation is being quietly investigated, and Mercy is asked to use her coyote-sharp nose to do a bit of sniffing around. Zee ends up framed for murder, and our coyote heroine shows she's willing to put her neck on the line to save him.

Mercy Thompson Book 4 | Bone Crossed
The vampire queen has figured out who killed one of her favorite vampires, and things get ugly. An old acquaintance shows up with ghost troubles, and Mercy follows her to Spokane. Of course, nothing is ever that simple in Mercy's world.

Mercy Thompson Book 5 | Silver Borne
In Iron Kissed Mercy borrowed a little book about fae artifacts. When she tries to return it, she finds the shop closed, and discovers that there are some other folks who want it, and they don't mind killing a few people to get it.

Mercy Thompson Book 6 | River Marked
Mercy and Adam finally take a little personal time, a little getaway for two in a quiet campground on the Columbia river near their Tri-Cities home. Of course, where Mercy goes trouble is sure to follow. This time, Mercy will learn more about her Native American heritage, and what it means to be a "walker".

Mercy Thompson Book 7 | Frost Burned
Mercy takes her new stepdaughter Jesse out shopping on Black Friday. They're involved in a fender-bender which should have been simply annoying, except that the whole pack has gone missing in their absence. With few allies outside the pack, and unknown enemies, Mercy's got her work cut out for her.

Mercy Thompson Book 8 | Night Broken
Adam's ex-wife calls with a problem. She's acquired a stalker, she's scared, and she wants to come "home". In Mercy's world, nothing is ever simple. The stalker isn't human, and is far more dangerous than anyone knows. Just to keep things interesting, the fae have decided they would like Mercy's walking stick back, and have added an ominous "or else" to their request. Mercy gave the walking stick to Coyote — and she has no idea how to contact him.

Mercy Thompson Book 9 | Fire Touched
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?

Mercy Thompson Book 10 | Silence Fallen
In the #1 New York Times bestselling Mercy Thompson novels, the coyote shapeshifter has found her voice in the werewolf pack. But when Mercy’s bond with the pack—and her mate—is broken, she’ll learn what it truly means to be alone...
 
Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes—only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe...
 
Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise...



ALPHA AND OMEGA SERIES

It is set in the same world as the Mercy Thompson Series, but on a slightly earlier time line. It begins with a novella titled Alpha and Omega published in the On the Prowl anthology. The decision to continue the story was made after the anthology had already been published, which has caused some confusion, since "book 1" is a actually a continuation of the short story. The series has plenty of action, but there's more emphasis in on the romantic attraction between the hero and heroine. On a romance-readers scale, this series is sweet rather than steamy.

Alpha and Omega Book 1a | "Alpha and Omega" from On the Prowl
This anthology contains the novella Alpha and Omega, which is the beginning of the series. Anna was changed to a werewolf in a brutal attack, and abused by her pack for years. When she learns her alpha was involved in a murder, she summons up the courage to call the Marrok, the leader of all the North American werewolves.

Alpha and Omega Book 1b | Cry Wolf
This is the first full-length book in the series. Anna and Charles are sent into the Cabinet wilderness of western Montana to hunt down a rogue werewolf. Of course, things are actually much, much worse than that.

Alpha and Omega Book 2 | Hunting Ground
In the second book, the Marrok is going to make the werewolves publicly known. Anna and Charles fly to Seattle to handle the discussion. Unfortunately, not everyone thinks it's a good idea, and they're willing to murder anyone who disagrees.

Alpha and Omega Book 3 | Fair Game
A serial killer is at large near Boston; a killer that likes to target werewolves. Anna is sent to help law enforcement unravel the clues, and Charles accompanies her. Of course, nothing is easy, and dangers lurk in unexpected places. The end of this book brings big changes to the world.

Alpha and Omega Book 4 | Dead Heat
Charles decides to buy Anna a new horse for her birthday, and travels to Scottsdale to visit an old friend who happens to have a horse ranch. It's all fun and games until his friends family is targeted by some dark magic. It's high stakes and nonstop action for Charles and Anna.

Alpha and Omega Book 5 | Title TBA
Charles and Anna doing something somewhere. ;)



Mercy's World | Shifting Shadows | "Silver"
This covers how Bran and Samuel were first made into werewolves, and how Samuel first fell in love with the Ariana. Of course, as we learned in Silver Borne, things have to take a tragic turn.

Mercy's World | Graphic Novel | "Homecoming"
This is a hard back graphic novel (comic book), which details how Mercy Thompson came to the Tri-Cities, and how she acquired her business. It's a prequel, but not necessary to understand the series.

Mercy's World | Shifting Shadows | "Gray"
An vampire buys the home where she lived with her husband, which has fallen into disrespair. She begins remodeling the place, only to find that old and beloved ghosts still linger.

Mercy's World | Shifting Shadows | "Fairy Gifts"
Mining towns are rough and human life is cheap. In the turn-of-the-century Butte Montana, a young man, turned to a vampire, struggles with his nature and eventually finds a measure of redemption in an unlikely place.

Mercy's World | Shifting Shadows | "Seeing Eye"
White witches are rare, and seldom as powerful as their morally-compromised counterparts. In this story, a blind witch teams up with a werewolf on a mission.

Mercy's World |  Shifting Shadows | "Star of David"
Being a werewolf can wreck havoc on family relations. This is a story of how murder and deception can bring a family together . . .

Mercy's Word | Shifting Shadows | "Roses in Winter"
A young girl survives a werewolf attack, and is transformed into a werewolf. When she wasn't able to control the wolf, she was moved to Bran's pack. The law is absolute: if a werewolf cannot learn to control the wolf, they must be destroyed for the safety of all. With hope fading, Asil intervenes.

Mercy's World | Shifting Shadows | "In Red, With Pearls"
Warren is a werewolf, and a private detective. This is a noir-flavored story about some truly terrible neighbors and why you should always treat a werewolf nicely.

Mercy's World | Short Story | "Underappreciated Gifts"
Some members of Bran's pack think Asil should get out more, so they've challenged him to accept a series of blind dates . . .

Mercy's World | Shifting Shadows | "Redemption"
Ben's got a quick temper, and a quicker tongue. He's also made a bet that he can stop swearing for a week, and it just might change his life.

Mercy's World | Graphic Novel | "Hopcross Jilly"
Mercy is a shapeshifting coyote and honorary member of the Tri-Cities werewolf pack. When the pack stumbles upon the buried bones of numerous dead children, she shapeshifts into a mystery of the legendary fae - a mystery that draws Mercy's stepdaughter Jesse into the fray!

Mercy's World | Shifting Shadows | "Hollow"
A wealthy recluse is haunted by a terrible ghost, and asks Mercy for help. What could possibly go wrong?
