Author keeps you guessing. Even though the story is totally fiction, there are life lessons to learn. The reader is wonderful. I love the different voices, especially Z's. I am well on my way to reading this entire series. Each one pulls you deeper into Mercy's life.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Yes...great story, nice bits of humor, and well developed characters make this series a pure joy to listen too!
When she finally finds the demon dude....she had to really harness all her strength to get the job done!
Shes interesting...she does not have an overtly feminine voice, but its perfect for Mercy, Mercy is more of a tom boy...and she makes it work perfectly!
yes and no....I did listen to it pretty quickly though...lol
Love this series, starting #3 now! lol
I love the evolving dynamics between Mercy, Adam, and Samuel in this series. In this book the demon-ridden vampire is really scary. The brief references to Stefan's feelings for Mercy add another interesting dimension.
There are several memorable moments revolving around the hunt for the bad guy, but I particularly enjoyed when Mercy first realizes how much she is effected by Adam and the conversation they have as a result.
I've listened to Lorelei King throughout this series, and she is fantastic. Her inflection as she speaks as Mercy makes the subtleties of Mercy's personality come alive for me. She does the variety of female and male characters voices very well. I love Briggs complexity in her characters, and the detail in her creation of the paranormal world makes it very interesting reading. But when you add King's performance talent into the mix it makes this series one of my favorites.
If you like paranormal stories this series by Patricia Briggs with Lorelei King narrating is a great addition to your library.
Another great Mercy Thompson book ... once I start listening I don't want to stop. However, with about an hour left to go it stumbles a bit. It feels the last hour was tacked on as an after thought to make the book longer. The last hour was ok, but felt a little forced.
This was my first audio book and I chose it because I already knew I liked the series. It was excellent. My only complaint was that Ms. King the narrator was a little to close on some of the male voices. Some of them sounded extremely alike, by time I got through the third hour I had it figured out, but in places it got confusing. Still she did an excellent job portraying the character's and their emotions through out the book. Hats off to both narrator and writer!
Yes. This series grabs you by the throat and you beg for more
Well written and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Her narration makes you feel like you are reading it yourself. She knows the cadence of the story and makes listening enjoyable.
I am easily amused!
Great book. I love this series but accidently started with book 4 so I am catching up and enjoying every minute of it. Mercedes is a excellent female lead surrounded by intriguing characters and Ms. Briggs brilliant story telling makes it difficult to return to real life obligations when entangled in her books.
Born with an innate Luv4Books! ~>Paranormal Romance/Contemporary and Young Adult capable of holding interest regardless of the Reader's Age
Book2 - Brings you even closer to all the wonderful characters in this glorious (and slightly dangerous) world that Briggs introduces you to....
Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.
Sometimes when you read a series it is hard for the author to maintain the plot and incorporate new ideas into the books so that the series progresses just as they would in real life, but she does it an this book did not disappoint. Loved it.
The World According to JimG944
4 of 5 stars to the Audible novel Blood Bound by Patricia Briggs. This is the second book in the Mercy Thompson series and is a marked improvement over the first hence another star. The first book (Blood Moon) was mostly a setup for the series defining the world (Werewolves, Vampires, shape-changers, etc) and defining the main characters. This story builds on the first with the sudden arrival of a big-bad guy (ah, thing). The story is very linear and slightly predictable. No significant plot twists or surprises. A good solid story well told. I plan to continue with the next book in the series as I do see potential. So, I do recommend this book.
