I would listen to this book many more times. Not only was it well written and entertaining but the narrator did a great job.
Can't really compare this book to just one. There were things from different books but the way that Patricia Briggs wrote this is also different than anything else.
Lorelei King brings character or spunk to the characters. I find that enjoy her individual characters but then there are characters that are brought to new life. her voice is captivating.
Two unique newly weds get more than they bargained for on their honeymoon.
I'm looking forward to the next book. I loved the work done on all these books.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
I was really enjoying the whole series, read it all in a weeks time. I was so happy to get to the last book to see how it would all end to find myself asking 'Who wrote this one?" I guess I was expecting more with Mercy and the pack them working out their difference, but she jumped to tie up a loose end with Mercy and her Dad. I did not think this was a loose end due to the fact the guy was suppose to of been dead this whole time. All the riddles he speaks in and some of the other's left me confused as to what was going on and who was who. Never did manage to quit understand If that man was her Dad or not. Then we end the book with Mercy's letter to Adam....Didn't she live? So why are we ending the book with the letter?
I felt jilted since we never got to see them settle all the differences and never really got to see the romance between the H/H. Now I ask, was this really the last book in the series??? I hope not, too many things were left undone.
I think the author was somewhat less inspired when writing this book - but that resulted in a more leisurely pace that I still enjoyed. There was more character development and background and less raw plot. I especially enjoyed that she branched out into Native American magic.
With previous books in the series I hated having to pause the playback when I got to work (I listen to and from work). With this book it was much easier to pause ... but I still liked the book a lot.
My only complaint is that that the author must have read earlier reviews about her stories being a little to PG (hard to believe with vampires running around, but true). At the end of the last book, and throughout this book, she tried to venture into an R rating ... but you could tell she was uncomfortable with it. I would have preferred continued discretion to the awkward introduction of more sex.
A Book Addict who found she could clean house and get her book fix with audio books.
My favorite of Brggs' work, this series is great. With a steely heroine and the best of the storyline. I love the narration and the stories Briggs creates.
This book was wonderful to read for those of us who have been rooting for Mercy to have a Happy Ever After. So glad she finally CHOSE someone, and it was an entertaining end to the series. Though it would be nice if it continued, as I love the narrator, and there are so many other aspects of this world that can be explored. Great conclusion to the question of "who will she end up with?".
I had read the others in this series was fun to listen to the last. I enjoyed the Mercy Thompson series.
Briggs always brings a great story and River marked is no exception! In this one we get to learn more about Mercy's back story and we see the relationship with Adam develop more. Great pick.
Great characters that you will fall in love in with. A story that keeps pulling you in.
Meeting some NEW characters!
Yes she doesn't read the book to you - you experience it
Great story and easy to listen to.
The characters and the narrator
Her voice is amazing and keeps your attention. I've read a lot of books that are narrated by her and actually search them out. This is how I came upon this series.
keep them coming!
In River Marked Patricia Briggs hits her stride in this series, maturing the relationships between and among characters, and expanding the characters.
Mercy continues to evolve and become more complex while staying true to character. We learn more about her and her past and her relationship to the worlds she inhabits. She is a very interesting person, and true to herself.
I confess: I would gladly listen to Lorelei King read the newspaper every day. She is absolutely the best, and she is the reason I decided to try this series of books. Her characterization of the vampires is fantastic.
I enjoyed the tension between Adam and Mercy when he couldn't enter the water and she had to save the day. Go Mercy!
This is a very enjoyable series, and the books keep getting better and better. Ms. Briggs has created a very interesting world and convinces us that it is perfectly normal for a VW mechanic to transform into a coyote. A cute one. If you are an author, writing interesting books featuring interesting women (and men), seek out Lorelei King to bring the story and your characters to life.
