“OMG so unbelievably awesome!! There are not words to describe the absolute wonder of this book. Patricia Briggs is one talented and amazing author that I will be following for years to come. Silver Borne was to be a turning point novel from the start. With Iron Kissed being a novel full of decisions in which Mercy had to accept what she truly desired, and begin the process of healing to overcome the past and hardship that occurred in the previous novels, this novel was a turning point in which Briggs ability would truly be tested to see if she would be able to carry to momentum that has prevailed in the previous books. I have to say she passed this test with flying colors, and the momentum in this book supersedes any of the other novels.
Mercy was the same old awesome witty and daring character, but Silver Borne has presented the reader with another side to Mercy that is full of love and possession beyond your wildest dreams. The relationship between Mercy and Adam is at all time high, and is addicting to say that least. Devoted readers will be exceptionally ecstatic to know that there was more action in this book between these two wonderful characters than any of the other books. Secondly, just when we believed that the storm had cleared for our dear Samuel. Briggs drags us through yet another novel that will leave us questioning the future for our dear friend. Ultimately, Silver Borne was a constant test of characters, and you find that many are not what they seemed. Even though the Fae will primarily take center stage of this book there was some awesome action for the Pack that keep both stories running without giving one as much attention in this particular book.
Patricia Briggs created a masterpiece in Silver Borne. This is by far the best book in the series thus far, and I can not wait to see the story continue. If you have not been following this series, this is the time to get caught up and become a follower. I have no doubt that Briggs will not stop here, and we are definitely in for many more wild rides. I CAN’T WAIT!!

“As usual, a fast paced ride with a nice mystery, but some of the characters seem recycled. The fairy queen seems very close to the vampire queen in previous novels in the series, and the forest fae is very like the creature who helped her escape from a cage in the novel where she discovered her talent with ghosts (which there was no mention of in this novel whatsoever).
As to the continuation of the series, some of the character development seems to have done a 180 in this novel, and I think it may be because of a lack of female characters to draw from.
The ending was semi anti-climactic, and I think she could have written a more complex escape for our heroes, but all in all, I enjoyed this continuation of the Mercy Thompson stories.”
“Love the latest Mercy book!! It embraces the passion you feel for the main characters along with the action you expect. This book also closes some of the continuing plot lines from the last books there-by leaving the possibilities open for the next one.”Fire Raven wrote this review Friday, April 2, 2010.

“My favorite so far in this series!
I loved the interactions and growth in the relationship between Mercy and Adam.
This one was full of delightful snarky quotes
I also liked reading the descriptions of my hometown.”
“Outstanding, absolutely outstanding. I was slightly, not disappointed, but I felt the previous book was missing something that makes Mercy Thompson so addictive. Ms. Briggs found it and added it a plenty in this latest novel. Silver Borne is full of the witty banter, overlapping conflicts, great nail biting action and the pinch of romance. With the ending feeling so resolved, I eagerly look forward to the next batch of trouble Mercy finds herself in.”Una wrote this review Thursday, April 1, 2010.
