Fans der Autorin Patricia Briggs dürfen sich - sofern sie der englischen Sprache mächtig sind - auf den September freuen. Dann erscheint in 464 Seiten aus der Feder der Autorin eine Anthologie mit Geschichten rund um Mercy Thompson.
"A compilation of short stories in the Mercyverse, including all the stories from previous anthologies as well as several new ones.", schreibt Briggs dazu auf ihrer Homepage.
Bekannt sind Lesern dabei schon:
"Alpha and Omega"
"The Star of David"
"In Red, with Pearls"
This is probably the only depressing story I've ever written, and it was a hard story to write. This covers how Bran and Samuel were first made into werewolves, and how Samuel first fell in love with the Ariana. Of course, as we learned in Silver Borne, things have to take a tragic turn.
"Roses in Winter"
A young girl survives a werewolf attack, and is transformed into a werewolf. When she wasn't able to control the wolf, she was moved to Bran's pack. The law is absolute: if a werewolf cannot learn to control the wolf, they must be destroyed for the safety of all. With hope fading, Asil intervenes.
Ben's got a quick temper, and a quicker tongue. He's also made a bet that he can stop swearing for a week, and it just might change his life.
A wealthy recluse is haunted by a terrible ghost, and asks Mercy for help. What could possibly go wrong?
After the tragedy of Silver, I had to remind myself that with long life comes the opportunity to overcome the past, and forge a better future. Samuel and Ariana have another.
A bit that I wrote in Adam's viewpoint for "Night Broken".
Wer nun neugierig geworden ist, sollte die Augen offen halten nach: "Shifting Shadows: Stories from the World of Mercy Thompson". Und so: "Mercy Thompson’s world just got a whole lot bigger ..."
PS: Im Frühjahr 2015 erscheint mit "Dead Heat" ein neuer Teil der Alpha and Omega Serie und "2015-2016 Date TBA | Mercy Thompson #9: Title TBA"
