I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
I enjoy this series and really liked this book. This story line includes more of Stefan. I liked Stefan in the previous book and wished to hear more about him. We get that plus the ongoing Mercy/Adam/Samual triangle story line. Also, we get to find out more about what Mercy can do other than just shifting to a Coyote. Great book. I'd recommend it.
This was my second book in the Mercy Thompson series and I was not disappointed in the least with it. There's a new vampire in town and he's brought a demon with him. The plot involves both the local wolf pack and the vampire seethe, even getting some of the fae involved. But it is Mercy's ability to speak to ghosts that is in high demand. We find Mercy tracking a demon/vampire who brutally killed others and even though she was scared she didn't let that stop her from fighting, I found myself holding my breath along with her as she went into each scary situation and eventually she saves the day and her friends. I loved the story, love the series and as I am writing this am downloading book 3 in the series, Iron Kissed. Lorelei King is once again an amazing narrator
I just read the review from Vivian who complained there wasn't any swearing and sex never got past first base. That this is a 4+ star book without garbage "is" the reason I downloaded this and will now listen to it. I love great stories without having to flinch because of coarse and crude expressions that add nothing to the work except to irritate the inner senses. I hope it is as good as Vivian says! Love to get into new series and authors.
I would definitely recommend this audiobook to friends, in fact I have! I love the Mercy Thompson series to begin with and to have it on audiobook is great! To sit back and listen to the story and be in their world is awesome!
I compare this book to the rest of the series. It has the same dynamics that just draw you in.
I love when Sam and Adam get all defensive with Mercy, in any book. But of course you have to love when Mercy saves the day!
I always want to listen to the book in one sitting. You just get drawn into it
I read and enjoy a variety of genres. My only requirement is that a story is well written, with interesting characters, and that both are believable. When I listen, the narrator is also very important. This is the second in the series I've heard, and I loved them both. Thanks Patricia and Lorelei. Scifi meets Stephanie Plum:)
Pleasant enough story, but not terribly exciting. I'm a bit put off by the protagonist's religiosity; my impression is that it's not merely character development, but an expression of the author's own views. Her pontificating about Christ's sacrifice on the cross and the like seem rather sanctimonious, and she's condescending towards another character's atheism. I bet a quarter that she manages to convert him before the series is done; it's one of the fantasies of the religious, sort of like the rest of us dream of getting superpowers from a radioactive meteor.
