Cover Love ~ Patricia Briggs ~ Frost Burned

Shapeshifter Mercy Thompson's life is calming down, at least enough that she can focus on mundane matters like Black Friday sales. But on her return, Mercy is unable to contact her mate, Alpha Adam Hauptman, or the other members of their pack. All she knows is that Adam is angry and in pain. With the werewolves fighting a political battle to gain acceptance from the public, Mercy fears Adam's disappearance may be related - and that he and the pack are in serious danger. Outclassed and on her own, Mercy may be forced to seek assistance from the most unlikely of allies: the vampire seethe.

Don't you just love Dan Dos Santos' artwork?  You can see more of this wonderful artist's work here

If you haven't heard, or seen, the cover & blurb for the next book in the amazing Mercy Thompson series was posted.  Sadly, it's not due out until March 2013.  *sigh*  So far away...  until then, we'll have to make due with the blurb.  And if you want a look into what it's like to live with a writer on deadline, pop over to Patricia Briggs' website and read what her husband Mike has to say (mid-page).  I always enjoy reading Mike's take on the writing process.  Very insightful and funny. 


  1. March is not a bad time. I wonder if we're going to see Charles and Anna. I'd like a bit of cross-over.

    And yes, vampire seethe means Stefan!! Yay!!

  2. Oh and of course, great cover :P i really like it, the white. Dan Santos not only does a great job with the characters, but the backgrounds are always great as well.

  3. Hi Leslie,
    How is your summer going? Maybe it's over already and all of your kids are back in school already? Including COLLEGE for your daughter? Omg..

    I saw this cover the other day. I LOVE it. Of course, I love all of the covers in this series.

  4. Nath ~ I hope we get a little of Charles and Anna. After the ending in Fair Game there almost has to be some cross-over.

    If I could I'd have dos Santos art on my walls. I'll just have to be satisfied with it on my desktop. :)

    Christine ~ Kids are back to school. Daughter starts college next week! They grow up too fast!

    The covers are beautiful! Hard to choose a favorite. :)

  5. Awesome cover. Briggs has really hit the jackpot with her covers for this series.

    March 2013? Ug, how can I possibly wait that long? lol

  6. That'd be cool, to have a life-size art of dos Santos on the wall. And yeah, maybe the kidnapping has to do with the events in Fair Game...

    I'd love to see some of Charles and Anna! But I bet we won't :(
