Good Book, I love the characters, Full of action and adventures with Mercy and her mate Adam. Best of all a new character with lots of potential is introduced
I got sucked right into this series it is so good. I love Lorelei King as narrator, thats why i started this series in the first place. By the time I got to the 6th book I knew I world not be happy with the ending, With no new books on the horizon. Mercy Thompson's life does not do happily ever after.But there is hope for these characters yet, and I would happily recommend this series to anyone who likes colorful characters and a little magic.
Best if read in order.
Excellent narration, however, I am disappointed. I have loved the Mercy Books up until now. This one seems too "gushy" romantic and spends a lot of time focused on the relationship between Adam (the hunk wherewolf) and now Mercy's mate/husband. What has kept me buying all of Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thomas adventures is our heroin's independance, smart mouth and her ability to fight her enemies while staying loyal to her friends. In this book, Adam and Mercy get married hence alot of the book's dialogue is spent on how Adam makes Mercy feel, how good looking he is, and their "Pack Bond". We don't get to hear much about Stephan the vampire, Zee, the Fae, or dialogue from the other werewolves. I sincerely hope that Patricia Higg's next book gets back to the Mercy and friends rather than the Mercy's inner dialogue about Adam.
Patricia Briggs continues to deliver with the Mercy Thompson series. River Marked is the best of the series to date!
My title says it all for me. The story is really good and read well. Having got sucked into this series, it was a nice to have a location change and to have a First Nation aspect.
I may edit my review, as I am only 2 and a half hours into the 8+ hour book so far, but I felt compelled to write. At this point Mercy says, "Life with Adam wouldn't be boring," and I found myself saying out loud, "not like this book, then."
Seriously, I am over 2 hours into an urban fantasy and almost no action, mystery or fantasy has occurred. Instead, the reader/listener is treated to a lame over-written romance. I've read/listened to the other Mercy Thompson books before, and, apart from my distaste at Patricia Briggs' decision to 'rape' her strong heroine in an earlier book, I have generally enjoyed them, but I am struggling to continue with this one. I am wondering whether this is because this book is actually much worse than the others, or whether it is because I have come across a much better series since, in the shape of Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels books. The latter have their faults, but if you are looking for Urban Fantasy starring a strong heroine, they are much more fun and action packed. I have also re-read the Dresden Files since reading the other Mercy books, and compared to those (the No. 1 urban fantasy series imho) this is a harlequin romance - very disappointing :(
If you are a Patricia Briggs fan, you are going to like this book. It starts out a little slow, but ends with a bang. I have liked her books from the beginning and this one is no different.
Great book for Mercy fans. The music at the beginning is so annoying- why do they do that?
I have listen to the entire series and can not wait until the next audio book comes out. Great story line from book to book.
