So, I might be a little bit obsessed with Mercy and Adam (Patricia Briggs’ Mercedes Thompson series). They are my second favorite urban fantasy couple. First is Kate and Curran (Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series).
I just finished reading Silver Borne, book 5 in the Mercedes Thompson series. I am dying to get my hands on book 6. I can’t believe I will have to wait until 2013 for book 7! Grr! At least I will have some other books to keep me distracted in the meantime… looking forward to the next Downside Ghost book by Stacia Kane and the next in the Chicagoland Vampire series by Chloe Neill.
My #SundaySample is going to be two passages – one from Bone Crossed and one from Silver Borne.
First, the passage from Bone Crossed (pp 64-65 Mercy speaking):
“Thank you, Adam,” I told him. “Thank you for tearing Tim into small Tim bits. Thank you for forcing me to drink one last cup of fairy bug-juice so I could have the use of both of my arms. Thank you for being there, for putting up with me.” . . . “Thank you for making the tough calls, for giving me time.” I stood up and walked to him, leaning against him and pressing my face against his shoulder. “Thank you for loving me.”
Now, the passage from Silver Borne (p. 99 Adam speaking):
“No apologies from you,” he told me, his voice soft enough to melt my knees and most of my other parts. “First of all, as I already pointed out – you would make the same choices again, right? So an apology doesn’t work. Secondly, you, being who you are, could have made no other choice. Since I love you, as you are, where you are . . .”
