She was without a doubt raised by a pack of monsters, integrated into human culture in the rural US.
Over a number of action-packed all the time Mercy learns a lot more regarding Mac, the beginner werewolf, and also he broaches unlikely medical experiments being compelled on him, cages, and being traded in between managing aspects (they could have been were or otherwise, his detects of scent etc not being trained enough to have that instantly come to him).
