While my favorite audio books are Holter Gram's audio rendition of the Alpha and Omega series, this audio book comes close behind those.
I love Mercy Thompson. She is a wonderful main character who does the right thing even though she knows it will likely place her in a situation she would prefer to avoid (getting back involved with the wolves).
I think Lorelei King's voice was excellent for Mercy Thompson and her thoughts.
I enjoyed listening to this book as I walked over a series of days.
Outstanding series introduction
Mercedes "Mercy" Thompson becasue in a world where there are so many things bigger and badder than she is, she still manages to hold her own.
When Adam's daughter came over to chat with Mercy, while Mercy was baking cookies and she offered to Spary paint the VW bug in Merrcy's backyard.
If you like Urban Fantasy, where Werewolves, Faires and Vampires all exist and have to deal with the perils of modern life, this is a must get series and this book is a great way to kick it off!
I am addicted to audio books, mostly fantasy. I have alwayz loved to read but could never find the time. This way I keep my mind occupied with wonderful stories and don't get caught up in life's stresses. I'm so glad I found this site.
I love Mercy! She is a strong independent woman! I have listened to the whole series...one more book to come out. I highly recommend it!
Mercy Thompson is plucky, high-spirited, stubborn and comical;. It’s a wonderful read, you won’t want to quit listening. I had to have the whole series; which keeps getting better and better. If you like paranormal fantasy, with the heroin that makes you laugh and gets into lots of trouble, you’ll love this book. Great narrator!!!!!
I am now addicted to this series! The narrator is great with the different characters, and not dull at all. I've noticed things I've read in other books lately are the same "myths" as in this book. I like being able to draw the line between backgrounds in fiction. If you like fiction, mysteries, and supernatural this IS for you.
Audible junkie for sure. As a mom of three littles a wife and full time student, sitting down to read is so nice but also almost impossible
Mercy herself and he wonderfully strong funny attitude
Um look above ... Can you guess? Mercy of course!
Well okay I am starting to detect a theme here.... Mercy lol
As always with me yes, yes I did. I laughed a lot the humor in here is delightful
This was the start of my love for Mercy. From here I have already gotten two more of the books in the Mercy T series and loving very minute of it.
Wonderful narrater. She made the series even more enjoyable by being involved with the characters and seeming to enjoy the series herself.
Yes I would listen to this book again. It keeps you wondering who is doing what. And it is very different compared to other books I have listen to.
I love love love love Lorelei Kind is the best, again I can listen to her on any audio she makes it sound great.
I would recomend this book and this series to anyone. It's a two thumps up!
Yup, it's another urban fantasy book rife with strong female characters, various supernatural baddie baddies, and hints at love-triangles. The sad thing is that if this wasn't written by the same formula as most books in this genre, I would give this a much higher rating. It's not that it's a bad book - it's actually really good and better than much of what I've read in the genre. It's just that there isn't much new or original in the plot, the universe, or the people.
Like most urban fantasy books I've read, this one spends book 1 doing a lot of introducing what different types of critters can do, what their weaknesses are, and setting up a bunch of "unanswered questions". What's in her past? Oooh, why is she an orphan? etc etc
The reading is decent, but some of the characters blended together in my mind and I fault that, at least in part, to the reader. As a first person perspective book, narration by a woman makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately, almost every other character in the book is a man and the reader makes them all sound like gravelly jazz singers.
