Summary from Goodreads:

Iron Kissed by Patricia Brigs

I could smell her fear, and it satisfied something deep inside me that had been writhing under her cool, superior gaze. I curled my upper lip so she could get a good look at my sharp teeth. I might only weigh thirty or so pounds in my coyote shape, but I was a predator…

Mechanic Mercy Thompson can shift her shape – but not her loyalty. When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder and left to rot behind bars by his own kind, it’s up to Mercy to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not.

Mercy’s loyalty is under pressure from other directions, too. Werewolves are not known for their patience, and if Mercy can’t decide between the two she cares for, Sam and Adam may make the choice for her…

My Thoughts:
I can’t say that I was too happy with this one. I will give it a 5/5 because I love the story line and some parts were beyond great for me.
Zee and Uncle Mike call in the debt that Mercy owes them for use of the medallion that she used to kill not one but two vamps in the last book Blood Bound. There is someone killing Fae and Mercy has a great nose in coyote form. So she goes traipsing off with Zee to smell the murder scenes and see if there is a scent that was at all of the murders. She ends up only searching the last and the first two, but soon figures out exactly who it was killing the Fae.
Zee and Uncle Mike go to have a little “chat” with the killer and find that the human is already dead. Zee is picked up on murder and it seems that the Fae are content to let him take the fall. So even after being told to stay out of it by Uncle Mike ( he should really know better), Mercy takes it upon herself to go to the murderer’s home and sniff out what she can. While there she learns a few things and meets a crow ( who you just know is Fae).
Once Mercy figured everything out, I was upset with the path that things went down; though I can understand it. And really PROPS to Mercy for the way she took care of that one!!

The side story of this book is all about Mercy needing to choose between Adam; Alpha of the local pack who has already claimed her as his mate in the pack, and Samuel; first love and werewolf. I really am glad that she made a choice in the end and I am happy with her choice even though I do love them both.
There were a lot of tears on my end in the last few chapters of the book, but it is a great read and I couldn’t put it down!!
