When she and her new stepdaughter, Jesse, decide to go Black Friday shopping, Mercy is relieved to have a moment of relative calm. But their night hits a bump when they are involved in a car accident. And when Mercy can’t reach Adam or anyone else in the pack, she gets seriously concerned. Through her mate bond, Mercy realizes that almost the entire pack has been abducted. They then discover only Ben escaped, and he is wounded. With Zee holed up in the Fae reservation, Mercy’s list of available allies is diminished. According to Ben, the men who abducted the pack claimed to be the government, but are they really? Mercy can sense Adam is angry and in pain. To save her mate and her pack, Mercy will need all her wits and to use every available resource — including the vampires. (ACE, Mar., 352 pp., $26.95)
