The Charmer, by Autumn Dawn | Silence Fallen, by Patricia Briggs | [Mini] Book Reviews #259 & #260

Book Review

10533095Jasmine didn’t realize her friend Wiley was special until they were drawn into another world. Here Wiley is betrothed to the ruler of the Haunt, a wererace both dangerous and proud.

Keilor is the master of soldiers, a man few would cross, yet he’d never met a menace like the little brunette his princess calls friend. Will Jasmine find the portal home, or will she find a werewolf of her own?


This is a little mini-review of my re-read of The Charmer. The first time I read The Charmer I was still in high school. I was probably 15 at the time. Well, I’m currently 22 so it’s been seven years since I’ve last read The Charmer.

Overall the Charmer is a short read, I think I finished reading The Charmer in only 2 hours, maybe? The plot of the story is fast as well.

I enjoyed reading Jasmine’s story again. I think that my only wish were that the rest of the series was told in Jasmine’s point of view as well. — The rest of the series is told in different views of the exact same time line that The Charmer is told in.

I gave The Charmer, 3 of 5 stars on Goodreads.

Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe…

Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise…


I was quickly laughing in this novel. I was legitimately laughing within the first 2 pages.

After that, the action started pretty quickly. We’re swept up in yet another one of the Supernaturals’ problems that have somehow involved Mercy. Trouble really does have a way of finding Mercy wherever she goes.

Something that I enjoyed in Silence Fallen is that there are two points of view between Mercy and Adam; even though Mercy has more chapters than Adam. 

I don’t really like the way that this books’ timeline was set up. I appreciated the attempt of the effect though. 

I, in no way shape or form expected what happened at the end of this book. What happened was both heartwarming and a little heartbreaking.

I gave Silence Fallen 2 of 5 stars on Goodreads. I still love reading the Mercy Thompson novels….I just feel as though Briggs is forcing the series to go on.

Happy Reading!
