Characters were very well developed the plot joy you end the story line was very enjoyable I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it to everyone
Yes, I think Lorelei King brings life to the characters.
It's exciting, romantic and sweet.
Yes gives a maturity and calmness to Mercys character.
Now, it was a bit slower than most of the other books my Patricia Briggs.
If you haven't listened to the series, you should!
Who cares about the wedding plans and the conflict with her mother’s ideas? That could have been shortened – A LOT! (Not enough to take a star away.) The rest of the book, FANTASTIC! It seems like Mercy is finally on the path to a picture perfect life with a bit of grease stains on the side. However, it's not long before she finds herself in far more trouble than she's ever been in before. She even meets a new relative or is he?
There is danger, as usual, with new paranormal characters added to the mix. That is what keeps this series fresh and interesting. This time it is a River Devil, something that used to be a Native American legend, but it seems to suddenly start eating people. In a failed attempt to get Mercy, the River Devil marks her, creating a connection between the two and Mercy starts dreaming about the monster's hunts - including the ones that take children. This brings her and Adam to the attention of local native people who might be able to give her new revelations about her heritage. This is a treat for the reader.
In this book Mercy and Adam are able to evolve on their own without the pack’s interference and they are a couple worth following.
I love patty Briggs' books. they are engrossing, surpring, and combine paranormal with mystery and traditional mythology in a seamless braid of storytelling. Only Mercy can get inro the middle of a moster hunting ground on her honeymoon. We get to meet her father for the first time, and this is a signifcant addition to her character. initially I wasn't thrilled with ms. king's voicing of Mercy, since I wanted her to have more Native inflections, but this book beautifully explains why she doesnt, and how her subconscious anger at her father kept her from seeing herself as Native. I think she is gradually becoming more comfortable with who she is, not just who she isnt during the book. at points I wanted to shake her and tell her she isn't a superhero, but that's the point. Mercy knows that she is not an immortal, but she still needs to defend others weaker than herself. Mercy may be merciful and understanding, but she is neither weak or forgiving.
Really enjoy the series and all her friends and relationships. This story felt different from the rest, maybe because she and Adam were mostly alone but it was good.
The last few chapters. While it took a long time to get to it the ending was pretty good.
Not one of her best.
I'll probably read the next one to see if it gets better.
