I really like the story of Mercy. She is a strong independent woman, and gets into trouble easily. She has two men in her life. Her ex (Sam) who she still loves, and the local Alpha (Adam), who she has been crushing on for years. Its a great love story, with lots of action! The rest of the books in the series are great too!
I just finished listening to this and I feel rather underwhelmed. I enjoyed the narration, but some aspects of Patricia Briggs' style annoyed me. For example, Mercy would be having a conversation with someone then Briggs would start giving a massive back story to the newly introduced character.
The story was far too structured with rules for my tastes. After each interaction (or during), there was a long explanation of why Mercy decided to act as she did. This messes with the pace and I just couldn't get into it. When I did finally finish the novel, I'm left trying to think about what Mercy accomplished other than being the lucky bystander.
Obviously I, a 28 year old male, am not the intended audience. That being said, I can see why others enjoy the series.
I decided to take a chance on this book when it was in a sale recently. I was not disappointed & have started reading the Alpha & Omega ones as well.
I usually don't read or listen to these types of books though I have been a huge fan of Jim Butcher's for some time.
Great discovery & I do like the narrator.
Looking forward to the next one.
Fun, inventive and entertaining. A mix of adventure, fantasy, humor and a touch of romance. I enjoyed the characters, and am looking forward to the next volume.
I was up very late many nights wanting to see what happens next! I just bought the second book and can't wait to start it. The author draws you into the book until you feel like you are part of the story! I love the narrator too! She did very well with each character. I knew which character was talking before she even said.
I really thought I was done and over all the vampire type books that are out now after Twilight series exploded. But I purchased this in the first of a series promo that ran on Audible for a quick light listen. WOWZA I love Mercy she is tough and strong and funny. I enjoyed ever minute of this book and have already purchased more in the series.
Very enjoyable read.
Recently, Audible had a "buy a first book in a series" for a ridiculously low amount. So, I took a chance on "Moon Called" by Patricia Briggs. Having never read any of her books, I didn't have any expectations and considered this an experiment. However, this book drew me in with its well-written and fleshed-out characters, plot line and humor. Ms. Briggs has the ability to let you know what her characters are feeling, without resorting to curse words overly much -something that is very noticeable in an audio book. I enjoyed her use of the lamb (read the book if you want to know what that means!) Ms. King did a marvelous job narrating the book. Her voices fit the characters, which always adds to the listening experience.
Needless to say, I have already purchased and listened to the second book in the series (Blood Bound) which was also very enjoyable. I highly recommend both these books and cannot wait to read the rest of the series!
I have ready this series and loved it. Great young adult book, modern and magical. Lorelei King does a wonderful job as Mercy. This is the first of the series I have listened to on audio book and can't wait to listen to the next one!
Loved Lorelei King in the Stephanie Plum series and wanted to hear what else she had to say! I have found my next series of reads! Cute quips and sarcastic humor delivered with spunk! I enjoyed this book and will be reading on!
This one was on sale and had decent reviews. So, I thought it worth a try. Glad I did. It was a very entertaining read and I will most likely buy another book from this author.
