Lorelei King us an excellent narrator, except when it comes to male voices. Namely, it is exceedingly obvious that it is a woman imitating a male voice. I believe James Marsters of The Dresden Files audiobooks is a superior example when it comes to mimicking the voices of the opposite gender.
Mercy is strong without being so overbearing about it you get sick of her. Adam is your typical alpha male but still is not to alpha is show his soft side.
I like all the characters, I have read the whole series and listening to them makes it even better. I wish it had some kind of sound effects in some places.
I like the narrator but wish there was a little different in voices
I could read this book over and over and same for the listening.
I don't think they could have chosen better for the voice. For the text, there was LGBT but I got tired of "werewolves this.." And "werewolves don't.." I'm sure we could have been shown her mythology, without so much dry lecture
I have read all of the Mercy Thompson books multiple time, so I knew I would enjoy the story.
I really enjoyed Lorelei Kong's naration. She is very tallented at giving each of the characters their own voice and tone. And unlike many narrators I have listen to recently she does this for all the characters main narative voice and one liner but player. Instead of just having a generic 'thug' voice for the ancillary bad guys giving them the menace they deserve.
Best of all I now know the proper pronunciation of Adam's last name Zee's full name and Bran's title.
Book Addict and a Fantasy Fanatic!
I love this new female lead. Mercy Thompson is a relatable character. She has a dirty bedroom and a real job. Most stories make their characters rich with no real need to work. But Mercy gets down and dirty in both her job fixing cars and helping out the local werewolf pack.
Ms King does a great job bringing the characters to life. The plot has a number of twists and turns.
No, maybe I'm just old fashioned, but there is nothing like reading a Patricia Briggs book for the first time.
How much time do you have? Briggs does a great job at character development (as you will see later in the series) she brings a fresh look to an old idea (werewolf, fae, vampires) the story grabbed my attention from the first chapter until the most recent book.
Sure, but not really necessary since I've read the book about 20 times already
