I liked that we got some more detailed insight into the inner workings of the pack magic. The way it works together. Also more stuff on vampires. Super scary and still mysterious. But I liked the progressions of some of the relationships with Stefan and even the creepy one with Marsilia. That is one scary vampire. Just never know where it goes. Sometimes Mercy has some tendencies of TSTL. Not sure if those were always there or have crept up a bit more because of the insecurities she has. And of course the trauma she constantly has to go through. Thankfully those tendencies were very vague and went away. I swear, if there is trouble to be found anywhere, Mercy will find it and double it every time. :). Still love the little coyote.
