I like this series and this character. My favorite part is that the ill effects to Mercy's psyche from the sexual assault she suffered in the last book are VERY present. For the most part, the various panic attacks and psychological side effects of her attack are very realistic and a little off putting (in a good way) They color pretty much the whole story UNTIL Adam cures her PTSD with his dick. I mean that in the most literal fashion possible. He has sex with her, and magically, huge chunks of her problems are gone. Granted, she still suffers from some ill effects, but his magic penis somehow does the same good for her that usually takes years of therapy.
Lorelei King still does a wonderful job bringing this world to life.
Patricia Briggs rocks at making the supernatural come to life as if it could really happen in today's time. Mercy is always one character I can relate to with a very independent personality who tries to do what's right according to her gut at the moment even if it costs her life or freedom all while coming to terms with how to be a mate to an alpha werewolf of the local pack. this is by far my fave one that I listen to over and over again! love them all but in this one, all the character's come to life more than ever!
Mercy definitely knows how to get in trouble. The Narrator is excellent in her presentation. She does a wonderful job at separating the characters. This is the third time listening to the series.
Lorelei King is spellbinding as always, and Patricia Briggs kept me guessing where we were going right up until the end. If you've read the first 3 books you'll notice a lot more, sometimes repetitive, introspection in this book. I hope it's dialed back in the next book, which I can't wait to hear.
Love mercy and Adams love story. He is strong enough to allow her to be her own person although it causes him to struggle with this position . Mercy is surrounded by some extremely strange, helpful, and loving friends. They each stand out in their own unique way and even the ones who have doubts about her being he right mate for the Alpha are in awe of her ability to get he job done. I love the way she embraces her ability as a mechanic and does not allow the shallow beautiful women intimidate her.
