Rating: 7

After a surprise wedding, Mercy is ready for a quiet honeymoon. But her husband, Mike, takes the suggestion of one of the fae to go camping in the Columbia River Gorge and, before you know it, they’re involved in facing an ancient evil that’s risen from the river. There’s a heavy does of Native American lore and archetypes that, while vaguely reminiscent of Gaiman’s American Gods, manages to avoid being too over the top and illuminates much of Mercy’s heritage and past (including how she can be a shifter since, apparently, both parents must have the ability to pass it on to their children…)
