Patricia Briggs' 5th installment to her popular Mercy Thompson series is going to be Silver Borne! According to the author's website, Silver Borne is pending a release date of March 30th, 2010. Synopsis from Amazon.com:
All-new action in the #1 New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series
When mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book she'd previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down.
It seems the book contains secret knowledge-and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands. And if that doesn't take enough of Mercy's attention, her friend Samuel is struggling with his wolf side-leaving Mercy to cover for him, lest his own father declare Sam's life forfeit.
All in all, Mercy has had better days. And if she isn't careful, she might not have many more to live...
From the author's site:
This will be the fifth Mercy Thompson novel. I may be premature putting it up, but a number of people write wanting to know if Bone Crossed was the last in the series. Happily, ACE has contracted for a total of seven Mercy novels, and it's possible the series could go even longer.
Coming March 30, 2010
I can NOT wait! I am such a fan of Patricia Briggs. I am waiting for Bone Crossed to come out in paperback so I can order it. I just ordered The Hob's Bargain by her, also.
