While there is certainly more urban fantasy on the shelves now than a few years ago, it isn’t always better (I’m looking at you Laurell K. Hamilton) and some authors are ending their long standing series like Charlaine Harris’s Sookie books and Kelley Armstrong’s Otherworld. So if you’re looking for something new, try Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson books. Mercy is a coyote shifter who was raised with werewolves; she lives in a world similar to ours but for her humans coexist with fairies, vampires, and shapeshifters.
In Frost Burned, the latest in the series, Mercy’s mate and his pack have been abducted. Knowing she’s outmatched, Mercy is forced to seek help from whomever she can.
