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!!!!!
The whole thing was great.....I love the descriptive words Patricia Briggs uses...she writes in a way that challenges a reader to expand there vocabulary and enjoy it!!!
Mercy of course.....but I do love Stephen and Adam too...
shes just perfect for this character....
It was a pure joy from minute one...
on my way to #5 now!!! lol
As a fantasy/sci-fi listener and reader, I tend to be finicky with my selections. I downloaded this based on reader response, and was not disappointed. Well plotted with developed and interesting characters, the book also offers thoughtful insights and a spontaneous sense of humor.
I love this series, and the narrator does a great job with the voices. I can't wait for the 6th book to come out in January 2011.

First, it IS important to read this series in order. Second, I am really enjoying Mercy's stories. My only problem is that these stories don't have any slow spots, so it's very difficult to find a place in the books where I can stand to put it down and get some sleep! The characters have a lot of depth and are well described. The narrator has done very well, being consistent with voices and reasonable with accents. Stephan's accent could be less "bad vampire movie" -ish and more Italian, and I imagined Adam with a deeper voice when I read the first book in paper format, but a human voice can only be so flexible. She gets the humor in the right places with different touches for each character in such a way that I've laughed out loud several times. A few times I heard laughter in her voice when she was describing a scene, but it added to the experience of listening to the book - it didn't detract. I'm not sure why anyone would give any book in this series a low score just because they didn't like the narrator, unless they had already decided in their heads what each character should sound like and simply disagree with how Lorelie King chose to portray the characters. To me, that still would not justify a low score - these stories are great! I'm looking forward to books 5 and 6, as well as Patricia Brigg's other books. As soon as I catch up on my sleep.
The Mercy Thompson books are good and only get better. The narrator is strong and makes the story come alive. If you haven't entered this world you're in for a treat. !My only regret is I'll have to wait for the next installment!
WOW!!!!!! My Wife has read all of these books and has wanted me to read them, but I haven't had the time, yet finally the audiobooks have been aviable if it is only the 3rd book I believe in the series and I'm Hook, I love the flow of the storyline, the character interaction is awesome, a very refreshing listen!!!!!!! I will be listening more to Patricia, and hopefully Lorelie is doing the reading!!! BIG HUGS AND KISSES!!!!!!!
This is a strong entry into the Mercy Thompson series, but the narration threw me....I usually love Lorelei King, and maybe I'm just too used to hearing her as Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, but her voice seems too light and upbeat for this series, and especially some of the subject matter in this story.
I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
The forth book in the series starts two minutes before the last one ends. Mercedes Thompson steps up to the plate for her friends and for Adam. I love the way Briggs resolved the triangle in the last book and is moving the character arcs of everyone forward in interesting ways. Also, Briggs does not shy away from difficult issues.
This plot has to do with Vampires. All of your favorites are back, Stephan and Marceillia among them. We see a bit of the Faye and of course the werewolves. Lorelie Kings hits the ball out of the park, again.
The series continue strong. I recommend this book and I can't wait for the next one. What is Mercedes going to do next?
Briggs is such an amazing author! I read a LOT of fantasy, and this is one of my all time favorite series! This is the 4th book in the series though, so if you haven't read any of them yet, you should start with "Moon Called".
As for the narration, King does a fantastic job!
This was a great book! I enjoyed the focus on Mercy dealing with what happened to her in the previous book. The werewolves and vampires were a huge part of this book (less fae - Hooray).
