I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. It is so well written and the characters stand out very well, there isn't a two-dimensional one to be heard!
It's probably a toss-up between Mercy, Bran, and Warren. It's hard to pick just one. Due to the books being from Mercy's POV, I have more context for her and why she is as she is, so she tops the list right now, but neither Bran nor Warren are far behind. I just want to know more about them both!
Her voices are so consistent and distinct. I have always had a hard time listening to audio books with only one narrator because I cannot follow the story if all the characters sound the same. Audio books are about the only way I can "read" now, since I can play them on the way to work. Lorelei King does many of the accents well in her books and I love that I can tell when a man is speaking and when a woman is. She even manages to make Jessie sound like a teenager. Kudos!
There is so much to pick from, but I love the realism that is incorporated into the books here. It really feels like there is another "world" intertwined with the one we know. I loved how Mercy acknowledges her own limits and doesn't rush in foolishly (at least not most of the time!) to confrontations.
An exciting story. Mercy is the best ever hero. I do not tire of reading this series. The reader is also excellent. I can't find enough words of praise. This book has some frightening bits too. So fun!
Love this series Probably listen to it five times and they never get old if you a looking for a great book this is it.
Have we got the book for you. Mercy is sassy and funny. A little bit romance and a little bit adventure. I devour these books.
loved it ! can share with my daughter and no embarrassing parts. great book. thanks
I have so much love for this series! This was my second time reading this book and I can honestly say that I liked it just as much as I did the first and maybe even a bit more. One thing that I enjoy about re-reading books in series that I love is seeing how many things have changed for the characters. I love how some of the groundwork for future events takes root in earlier books.
The characters in this series are wonderful. Mercy is awesome. She has a wonderful sense of humor and she is tough. She knows that she is not as physically strong as many of the people she surrounds herself with but she more than makes up for it in mental toughness. She isn't afraid to take risks especially if it is the right thing to do. This book actually has a pretty big cast of characters and I really love them all. Adam and Sam are both great characters. The members of Adam's pack are all so well defined that they really stand out as individuals. I think it takes real skill to bring such a big group of characters to life.
The world building in this series is phenomenal. Everything just fits perfectly. It seems like each book adds another layer to the whole picture with complete consistency. I love all of the pack politics and learning about how all of these different groups have learned to live with each other. There were moments in this book that were quite creepy and I loved every moment of it.
I really enjoyed Lorelei King's narration. Her voice fits Mercy's character quiet well. It was really easy to follow and I thought she did a great job differentiating between all of the different characters. I also thought that she did a great job in displaying all of the different emotions of the story. I can't wait to continue this series in audio.
I would highly recommend this series to others. I think that anyone who enjoys urban fiction or paranormal stories should check out this series. I am a huge Patricia Briggs fan and can't wait to see what she can come up with next.
