Love that this series has a little of each supernatural characters. Mercy is strong yet slightly vulnerable yet doesn't allow her super friends to rescue her.
I really like the narrator Lorelei King, she is great and has the perfect voice for her field. This book has a good pace and is sure to satisfy fans of the previous books based around Mercy Thompson!
Ready for the next stage.
This book as a whole is...fractured. This attempt at complexity failed. The two plot lines didn't weave well. I liked Chad but not enough to care about his story. I really like Stephan. It's too bad their relationship doesn't go anywhere. The reading was entertaining. The main characters are just as engaging, but half the story is filler.
I think each book in this series is the best one until I read the next one. I love this series. Thank you Patricia Briggs and Lorelei King for your ability to make the story come alive....
the confrontation with the villain in all her books is just so anticlimactic...it just leaves you feeling let down..i mean once I read the chapter i asked myself...that's it? just like that and it's over? I went from anticipation of the confrontation to feeling like ..wha..???? I really don't understand the hype being gushed out over this character's books..
Yes, I already have. I love it because I like the people in it, especially Adam, who is the kind of guy I would want to date. Hot AND emotionally stable, just the way I like them. I'm not into all that caveman stuff but Adam manages to be protective while still respecting Mercy's right to make her own choices. And Mercy is smart enough to know when it would be best to step back and let someone else handle something.
I really liked the interaction between Stephan and the little boy. The boy was a likeable little introvert and Stephan was kind.
I think Lorelai really brings out Mercy's wry sense of humor. Mercy's humor is subtle and slightly self deprecating, which I enjoy. Lorelai gives those moments just the right emphasis to highlight, "Mercy is being funny here," without it seeming like an elbow in the ribs.
I know I've cried while listening to some of the books in this series. It seems likely I have cried during this one, but I've always been one who gets emotionally involved in good books.
One of my pet peeves is when a reporter or non-warrior type person insists on tagging along on a "mission" where violence is likely despite there being no need for her (it's usually a her) to join in and get in everyone's way. In this series there are some occasions where Mercy is required to be in harms way for one reason or another, but she is never dumb about it and there are times when she says, "okay, you with the super strength and healing powers; you can take care of it." Doesn't always work out that way but she's not all "girl power" when she doesn't have the same skill set as others. There's nothing wrong with being in the support staff sometimes.
Love the Narrator. She's how I found this series. Liking the series more each book as the characters and the relationships develop and evolve. Plots are good and there is always a new piece of the universe introduced in each book to keep it fresh.
My most memorable moment was the oak tree outside her window. I thought it touching the oak man what do something to pay someone who helped them so much without being asked. now waiting for her to come to him and ask for him to help with a situation. just doing something small something kind to repair in the way he could.
probably not. once was enough. it was a good story but not riveting
She is a great narrator and I have no complaints
I know the author is trying to make all the money she can as we all are. but come on barely 10 hours. All her books are the same way and if I didn't like the story I would have quite a long time ago. Most other books hoover around 14 hours and I feel she is cheating me for the money. It is still a great story but the shortness and then the first 10 minutes was recapping the last book I was like good Lord cheating me some more.
