Briggs Is The Master

I sat up half the night reading Patricia Brigg’s  new book and only put it down because I had to get up with my son early for his second day of school.  Told in third person with multiple viewpoints, it’s quite different from the Mercy series, but I knew I’d be in for a treat since I love Briggs writing like I love sushi… and air.  I will always be a Mercy fan–even reread the books and it’s not often I do that these days.  

I raced to get morning stuff done and had this book in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other the second my son left the house.

I guess some reviewers thought the book started a bit slow or were confused by starting in the middle of a relationship.  Not me.  In fact, there was an emotional depth to these characters that had me in love with them fast–and I never read the prequel novella.  Seriously.  I tried to put the book down last night, planning to go out first thing today to buy the novella.  I can’t stand to read books out of order, but I could not.  Simply could not put this down.  Cry Wolf is excellent.  I just finished it and my heart is still racing with that thrill a reader gets from a really good book. 

And as a writer, the magic I get from that thrill has me wanting to do nothing but write this weekend.  I have a couple of obligations–but other than that, the time is mine.  Thanks, Patricia.  You rock.

About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.
