Review: Another action packed story from Patricia Briggs that will leave you wanting more.

I really enjoyed following Mercy's story. Right off the bat, she is in an accident that nearly kills her. She's only in that accident because someone wants to kidnap her. Her situation seems to degrade quickly, leaving her in a strange land with no allies and no resources.

We also follow the story of Mercy's mate Adam as he desperately tries to find his love. I really feel for Adam. Briggs has painted a gripping picture of how devastating and frantic it can feel to loose someone you love. Adam searches for Mercy, but at the same time he has to play the diplomat to foreign powers. Its very intense.

The plot is intricate, head spinning at times, but its easy to pick up the pieces again in the next chapter. There were a few characters that didn't really seem to be needed, but were still awesome in their own way. The writing was great and colorful, just what you would expect in a New York Times best selling author.

I enjoyed this story and I can't wait to read more from Patricia Briggs. I gave Silence Fallen three stars, only because there was so much going on that it almost felt like two totally separate stories.
