Amidst the shadows of the supernatural world, a dark power stirs, ready to unleash its menacing grip on the quiet town of Aspen Creek. In “Smoke Bitten,” a riveting tale that weaves threads of mystery, romance, and the supernatural, our heroine, Mercy Thompson, confronts a sinister force that threatens her very existence. As the story unfolds, Mercy’s life is anything but mundane. A shape-shifting coyote and car mechanic, she lives with her werewolf husband, Adam Hauptman, and their pack. Their days are filled with love, laughter, and the challenges that come with their magical existence. However, when a malevolent fae escapes from Underhill and infiltrates Aspen Creek, Mercy’s world is turned upside down. The soothing voice of Lorelei King navigates listeners through the intricate web of peril and intrigue, deftly bringing to life the richly drawn characters that populate this thrilling saga. As Mercy and her pack race against time to uncover the source of the malevolence, their investigation leads them to a host of fascinating secondary characters, each with their own motivations and secrets. With every encounter, Mercy discovers that even the most ordinary person can harbor extraordinary secrets, and that the line between good and evil is often perilously thin. With each step closer to the truth, the stakes rise, forcing Mercy to confront her deepest fears and the darkness within herself. Patricia Briggs, the masterful author of “Smoke Bitten,” has crafted a world that invites listeners to dive into an enchanting universe filled with adventure, passion, and supernatural beings through Soul Taken and Silence Fallen. Lorelei King has narrated most of these stories so there is not a lot of change in the voice of the narrator throughout the series.
