Though the revelations felt somewhat forced, I really enjoyed this! The tension is great, the characters are fun, and the world Briggs built is beautiful!

An easy read where Mercy and Adam go to Montana and end up saving the world. None of the Montana pack are shown. They are in a completely different area. The story is told in multiple POV's from Adam to Mercy, to even Warren and Sherwood and a tiny bit from Mercy's Father Coyote. BUT only Mercy gets the first person POV. The other POV's are more of a "Meanwhile, back at the ranch..." for an incident, or "Going on elsewhere...".

It was fun, and pretty much all the worries were handled by the end of the book, but the big-bad is still out there waiting.

I loved reading about how much Adam's wolf loves the snow. He spent a lot of time showing a wolfy grin or laughing face.

The Mery Thompson series is a comfort read for me. I slipped back into Mercy's world easily and happily as soon as the book started. Perhaps it's just the timbre of Lorelei King's narration but, despite all the threats and the acts of violence, I find being in Mercy's world soothing. It's a dark place, edged with remembered pain and clouded with the potential of future loss but, at its heart, it's a good place to be.

I like that although neither Mercy nor Adam are the biggest badest creatures around, they'll still do what they can to make bad situations better. I also like that their actions have consequences that persist for more than one book. They carry their scars, emotional and physical, with them from one book to the next. Mercy is still being threatened by the head European vampire who abducted her and left Adam for dead in 'Soul Taken'. The threats are in the form of phone calls. That may not sound scary but Patricia Briggs makes it chilling both from the content of the calls and the fact that they are a constant reminder to Mercy that she he will know where to find her when he finally comes to kill her and her people.

'Winter Lost' is the fourteenth Mercy Thompson book, which is a point where a series is in danger of going stale, repeating the same plots with slightly different costumes and backgrounds and with the same hero turning up to face the same foe time after time so that you feel like you've read the book before. i think Patricia Briggs has done a good job in keeping the series fresh. She's allowed Mercy to change over time as a result of the experiences she's been through. She's successfully negotiated getting Adam and Mercy from unresolved sexual tension to being an established married couple without making them boring. Most importantly, she's started to use multiple points of view to tell the story. In this book, as well as having the story told partly from Adam's point of view, Patricia Briggs uses 'Interludes' to describe what is happening to the pack members while Mercy and Adam are away. All of this deepens my engagement with the series.

The plot of 'Winter Lost' melds Norse mythology and First Nation mythology into something unique. Patrica Briggs has a knack for making the gods in her story disturbingly alien while still creating points of empathy that make them feel real. This time, Mercy finds herself searching for a magical artefact while trying to prevent Ragnarök. I love that, in Mercy's world, a plot like that makes sense. I enjoyed that, by setting of the story in a remote Victorian resort hotel next to an ancient hot spring in the Montanna Mountains during a record-breaking blizzard, Patricia Briggs provides a venue that combines Norse and First Nation myths and sets up something close to a golden-age locked-room mystery, with a colourful cast of new characters as suspects in the theft of the missing artifacts.

I had a good time with this book and I'm keen to see where the series will go next.

Mercy, still suffering from the damage inflicted on her magic in the last story, has to travel to Montana in a blizzard to help her brother Gary who has been cursed by a frost giant. She hates to pull Adam away from all his responsibilities in the Tri-Cities, but he won't let her go alone.

After traveling through very difficult weather, they find themselves at a resort that is on the brink of holding a wedding if the groom manages to arrive in the teeth of the storm. Mercy and Adam need to find an artifact that was stolen, possibly by Gary, from a frost giant who has control over the weather.

Unknowingly, they also find themselves in place to renew a magical spell that prevents Ragnarok from beginning. This one deals with a lot of Northern European mythology, but Native American mythology has its influence here too. And Coyote also has his trickster paws in the mess...

I always enjoy books in this series. This one was no exception. I love the relationship between Adam and Mercy. And I enjoy all the different mythologies that find their way into these stories.

I listened to the audiobook version of the story and enjoyed Lorelei King's portrayal of the various characters.
