Synopsis: Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She's never known any others of her kind. Until now.

An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River-one that her father's people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help...

Review: Book 6 in the Mercy Thompson Series. Mercy and Adam are on their honeymoon but that doesn't prevent craziness from following them.  Being married to the Alpha male of a wolf pack has its advantages and disadvantages.  The events in this book really put Mercy and Adam's relationship to the test along with their instincts.

While camping on Native land Mercy and Adam help rescue a native man and find themselves in the middle of a mystery that has roots older than many fae.  While Mercy's heritage is somewhat of a mystery we get a glimpse but not many facts into her background.  They also find themselves meeting others of a similar heritage to Mercy.

Filled with Native American myths and lore this book had a different yet equally enjoyable feel to the other Mercy books.
