Fire Touched is #9 in the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs. The Fae are still in hiding but the Grey Lords escalate their quiet war against the Humans and Werewolves collectively, when they send a troll out to attack a bridge forcing Mercy and Adam’s pack to respond to the crisis.
Zee and Tad return to the story, along with a human child who was stolen by the Fae a very long time ago and who the Fae want back. Mercy promises to protect the child, forcing the pack into a very dangerous position. Like, even more dangerous than usual.
I love the Mercy Thompson series. If you haven’t read paranormal before, this series is a great one to start with. It has the right blend of believability and charm, backed up by great plots and the awesome-ness that is Mercy.
