Hot off the social media feeds! It’s the cover reveal for the next Mercy Thompson book by Patricia Briggs! Soul Taken will be released in March 2022. As always, the absolutely gorgeous cover art is by Daniel Dos Santos, who is such an incredibly talented artist.
Here’s the blurb for the plot:
Mercy Thompson, car mechanic and shapeshifter, must face her greatest fears in this chilling entry in the #1 New York Times bestselling series.
The vampire Wulfe is missing. Since he’s deadly, possibly insane, and his current idea of “fun” is stalking Mercy, some may see it as no great loss. But when he disappears, the Tri-Cities pack is blamed. The mistress of the vampire seethe informs Mercy that the pack must produce Wulfe to prove their innocence, or the loose alliance between the local vampires and werewolves is over.
So Mercy goes out to find her stalker—and discovers more than just Wulfe have disappeared. Someone is taking people from locked rooms, from the aisles of stores, and even from crowded parties. And these are not just ordinary people but supernatural beings. Until Wulfe vanished, all of them were powerless loners, many of whom quietly moved to the Tri-Cities in the hope that the safety promised by Mercy and Adam’s pack would extend to them as well.
Who is taking them? As Mercy investigates, she learns of the legend of the Harvester, who travels by less-trodden paths and reaps the souls that are ripe with a great black scythe. . . .

I love this series, and I also love the covers. They have come such a long way since the first one! I do wonder if the series has run its course at this point, though. I don’t stay with most series this long, so it’s maybe just me. Patricia Briggs can write anything and I’ll read it.
The first cover is the only one I don’t like! Her face is different there — her look is much more consistent from #2 onward. The only series that really keep me reading for so many installments are Mercy (and Alpha & Omega) and the Toby Daye series by Seanan McGuire. Otherwise, I do tend to lose interest with most ongoing series that are so open-ended.
Yayyyyyyy! But March is so far away. 😦
This is so pretty! Thanks for sharing😁
I always love these covers!
