Beschreibung


Patricia Briggs "has reached perfection"* in this #1 New York Times bestseller, as Mercy Thompson faces a shapeshifter's biggest fear...

Mercy's life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Alpha werewolf Adam Hauptman has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy's life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more...

After a traffic accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can't reach Adam-or anyone else in the pack. They've all been abducted. Mercy fears Adam's disappearance may be related to the political battle the werewolves have been fighting to gain acceptance from the public-and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outmatched and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from any ally she can get, no matter how unlikely.

You should have brought the van, said my stepdaughter. She sounded like herself, though the expression on her face was still a little tight.

I shouldn t have brought anything, including us, I muttered, shoving harder on the hatch. My Rabbit had a lot of cargo space for a little car. We d only been here twenty minutes. I shop at Walmart all the time, and I never come out with this much stuff. We d even left before the big midnight reveal. And still I had all this stuff. Most of which had not been on sale. Who does that?

Oh, come on, she scoffed, determinedly cheerful. It s Black Friday. Everyone shops Black Friday.

I looked up from the stubborn lid of my poor beleaguered car and glanced around the parking lot of Home Depot. Obviously, I muttered.

Home Depot wasn t open at midnight on Black Friday, but the parking lot was huge and was doing a good job of absorbing the overflow from Walmart. A bicycle couldn t have parked in the Walmart lot. I wouldn t have believed there were this many people in the Tri-Cities and this was only one of three Walmarts, the one we d decided would be the least busy.

We should go to Target next, Jesse said, her thoughtful voice sending chills down my spine. They have the new Instant Spoils: The Dread Pirate s Booty Four game on sale for half off the usual price, and it was set for release tonight at midnight. There were rumors that problems in production meant before-Christmas shortages.

Codpieces and Golden Corsets: The Dread Pirate s Booty Three, better known as CAGCTDPBT I kid you not; if you couldn t say the letters ten times in a row without stumbling, you weren t a Real Player was the game of choice for the pack. Twice a month, they brought their laptops and a few desktops and set them up in the meeting room and played until dawn. Vicious, nasty werewolves playing pirate games on the Internet it was pretty intense, and I was a little surprised that we hadn t had any bodies. Yet.

Shortage rumors carefully leaked to the press just in time for Black Friday, I groused.

She grinned, her cheeks flushed with the cold November wind and her good cheer not as forced as it had been since her mother called to cancel Christmas plans during Thanksgiving dinner earlier this evening. Cynic. You ve been hanging around Dad too much.

So, in search of pirate booty, we drove across the street to the Target parking lot, which looked a lot like the Walmart parking lot had. Unlike Walmart, Target hadn t stayed open. There was a line four people deep waiting for the doors to be unlocked at midnight, which, according to my watch, was about two minutes from now. The line started at Target, wrapped around the shoe store and giant pet store, and disappeared around the corner of the strip mall into darkness.

They re not open yet. I did not want to go where that line of people was going. I wondered if this was how Civil War soldiers felt, looking over a ridge and seeing the other side s combatants, grim and poised for battle. This line of people was pushing baby strollers instead of cannons, but they still looked dangerous to me.

Jesse looked at my face and snickered.

I pointed at her. You can just stop that right now, missy. This is all your fault.

She blinked innocently at me. My fault? All I said was it might be fun to go out and hit the Black Friday sales.

I d thought it would be a good way to distract her from her mother s patented brand of guilt trip leavened with broken promises. I hadn t realized that going shopping on Black Friday (Thursday still, according to my watch, for the next minute) was akin t
