Cover Art - 'River Marked' Mercy Thompson #6

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…

This cover-art is being passed around the book blogs at the moment. I just needed to post a little something about how darn *excited* I am for the sixth Mercy Thomspon novel.

I am a rabid Patricia Briggs fangirl, and the newest Mercy book is always my 'most anticipated' title every year... and for good reason. There hasn't been a 'Mercy' book I haven't loved, and this year's 'Silver Borne' was no exception. The events in 'SB' have got me *so* pumped for 'River Marked', and that cover/blurb have me chomping at the bit for book #6! Mercy's Native American heritage has never been fully addressed, so I really appreciate that now her love life is under control, Briggs will start an investigation into where it all began with out girl Mercy. I Can't. Wait!

Dan Dos Santos has delivered another exquisite cover; every time I see the new Mercy cover I always say that one is my new favourite... I love the 'Bone Crossed' and 'Silver Borne' covers, but I think 'River Marked' may be my favourite yet. Mercy looks absolutely stunning - and is it just me, or does she have quite a contented expression on her face? Mayhaps that calm is thanks to Adam and good lovin'?

I really, really need 2011 to roll around so I can get my Mercy-fix!

  1. Can't wait to read this! Should be interesting to find out more about Mercy's dad.

    dos Santos can do no wrong when it comes to covers. And the look on her face, yeah, I'm thinking Adam had something to do with that. :)

  2. I love that you describe yourself as a "rabid" fangirl. I am going to steal that phrase to describe myself from now on. I too absolutely adore Brigg's writing! I didn't know the cover was out for River Marked. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This is an awesome cover! this series has definitely been lucky with so many great ones =)

  4. Gorgeous! But knowing myself I will by the UK paperback as Hardbacks are too expensive for me and I do not have the patience to wait for the US paperback.
