Not something I would normally read but Audible suggested during a sale s I gave it a chance. DAM YOU AUDIBLE! When I finally got around to listening, I some how got sucked into it and was buying the series without my credits. I think the books are geared more to women than heterosexual men I have no problem saying I loved them. I always want to say Lorelei King deserves a lot of credit for making this a good book to listen too.
The writing in this is solid, the characters are interesting and not especially stereotypical. Too bad the book cover make this appear to be a harlequin-lite, I'm sure it turns off more than a few people like myself who wouldn't touch that kind of moronic fluff normally! A $4 sale made me willing to take a chance on this, glad I did!
Wonderful series! The author and the reader are an incredible team. This series is a great mixture of fantasy, suspense, action and romance. The characters are really rich and fun. The romance between the two main characters really enhances the story, but doesn't bog the story down. I don't read romance novels, but a little romance and sex in a book like this is fun. The author develops the romance between the two characters thru the series and makes it intriguing to watch. It's fun, sexy and easy to believe. Each book is complete enough to stand alone, but it's better to read the books in order since some things are built on what occurred in a previous book, but not dependent on it. The reader is really good and is able to develop voices and stay true to them thru the series; you know exactly who is speaking all the time. I highly recommend this series and have to a lot of people!
I'm a fan of fantasy. This book, being mostly about werewolves, is a bit out of my general reading territory, but was definitely worth listening to. The characters are well done and interesting and the plot makes you want to keep listening. I definitely recommend it.
I exercise while listening to audiobooks. I would extend my workouts just to hear what was happening next. This book is a supernatural mystery with a little romance thrown in. The characters and the supernatural world the author creates are interesting and three dimensional. I highly recommend this audiobook.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This book sucked me in right away and I was already preparing to buy the remaining books in the series from the first couple of hours. The story is about Mercy helping out the local Alpha when his daughter gets kidnapped. This is a clean cut book, no cursing or sex. I personally would have liked more romance in the story, but I have a feeling it may come later. I love Mercy and there is good development with all the characters. I didn't pay attention to the narrator until she started talking and I was happy. I think Lorelei King is awesome and have always enjoyed her work.
I really enjoyed this book, I didn’t love it but I enjoyed it. It was a nice easy listen. I liked Mercy aka Mercedes Thompson, the heroine in this book. She wasn’t over the top bad ass but was confident enough in herself, knowing that she’s not a wimp but strong. There was werewolves, fae and vampires all introduced in this book.
Mercy is a coyote or walker, which is almost an extinct species. She’s also a car mechanic. She was raised by wolves (werewolves), the most prominent pack in the U.S. at that. We are able to learn a little about her background and especially her relationship with Sam.
Adam is very intriguing. He is the Alpha of the local wolf pack. There is definitely some serious sparks flying between those two and I can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
There wasn’t much different from the typical UF books. Conflict, fighting, mystery, murder, possible love interest and conflict resolved with a little left open for the future.
The narrator did a great job, no complaints there.
I've always loved books. Even before I could read I've loved them. Fact or Fiction, I love books. I'd sooner read a book than see a movie.
The different supernatural beings and their interaction with each other.
Mercy was very intersting, she is set up to be an outsider as well as a spider spining the tale. I like the idea she is a wier cyote.
When Mercy was in the warehouse on a rescue mission.
I couldn't think of one.
The best way to read.
Great book, story, characters, etc. but not spark. Even so, I will most likely read the whole series. Great narrator.
In pursuit of truth, justice, and an end to spoilers!
I'll join the chorus of positive reviews for this one. Fun story, engaging characters, good narrator. It's neither too heavy on the romance nor too dark and technical, so I can see how it could be appealing to a good cross-section of readers. I'll be downloading the second book right away!
This book is is very light on profanity -- not in a preachy way at all, but in a way that works with the storyline. It's not a big deal and many people have probably listened to this and not really noticed. If you're an urban fantasy reader who would rather avoid coarse langauge, this series might be worth a peek!
(Now personally I'm fine with or without coarse language, as long as it fits the story. But I know that's not true of everyone!)
