Before we get started talking about Silence Fallen, let’s take a moment to wish Patty a Happy Birthday! Yes, February 28th is her birthday. A Pisces. Naturally creative, kind and understanding. But get this description from one astrology site.
“Your ruling planet is Neptune that stands for spiritual enlightenment, fantasies, mercy and guilt.”
Creepy, huh? The mention of fantasies and mercy? A chill just ran down my spine.
I’m going out on a limb here, people. This is my favorite Mercy book in a while, and I love all of them. I fell in love with Mercy all over again as I marveled at how smart and resourceful she has become.
This book could have been titled “Mercy Goes to Europe,” or “Mercy is Kidnapped to Europe and Adam, Mostly In-Control, Goes After the Ones that Did it. (I am sure the only reason Patty didn’t call it that is because it is so long.) Oh, and there is one massive surprise.
If you like your alpha hot and on the edge and your heroine to take care of herself, this is the book for you. You also get to visit Eastern Europe and the Jewish mythology of Prague, and get a taste of European werewolves’ politics, which are brutal.
I asked Patty two questions. Bonarata is a serious bad vampire from Italy. This is not a spoiler; you meet him early. There is a quick line where Bonarata is speaking to an architect in Seattle. So, I asked the obvious question.
- Is Bonarata moving to Seattle? Can we assume he’s going to be in the next book?
All that wily minx would say is “All characters not dead–er, dead and gone–are subject to reuse.”
- Not very helpful.
I’m not going to include the second question because I think it is too spoiler-y. We can talk about at the end of March.
Note: The astrology site is is here. I don’t believe in astrology but the wording was too perfect not to include.
