Mercy and her husband lead "interesting" times as described in the classic Chinese curse. Doing what is right is not always easy, just ride along and see.
you come to care for you the characters in this world. very well written and the narrator did an excellent job adding more life to every character. Love the inner strength of Mercy. WOW.
I have not read the printed version. The audio edition is well performed by Lorelei King.
The way Mercy Thompsen handle the ex-wife.
Love her performance of all the different characters in the story.
Absolutely everything about this book was good! I loved this one! I particularly like the way this one started with Jesse and Mercy doing Black Friday shopping and all the craziness that entails. I honestly was riveted from page one with what was going on with the pack, the wreck, everything. This book grabbed hold of me and never let go. Loved, loved, LOVED all the action in this one.
And I also really enjoyed being back in the arms of the pack again...both Adam's wolf-pack and Mercy's pack of strays. Ben & Kyle...gah, I love both these guys and I loved how much page time they got. Honestly, I think Ben is one of the most under-appreciated wolves. He is so strong and his will-power in this one was amazing. I love how much he is tied to and devoted to her...probably because their relationship was so not that way to begin with. They just have a great partnership...mainly in that it's so unexpected.
And this book explored even more of Mercy's powers. I love how much they continue to grow and evolve and surprise even her. Coyote is an interesting mentor to her. Honestly, I don't even really like the character, but I like what Patricia Briggs has done with him in the story to help Mercy.
And then there's the little easter egg of happiness in this book...TWO WHOLE CHAPTERS FROM ADAM'S POV. I squealed aloud when the first one happened and then couldn't believe that there was a second. Mercy and Adam are in such a good stable place which is crazy when you consider how unstable their lives are on a daily basis. Their marriage has enriched them and I like that a lot. No, he hates that she risks herself and his wolf fights him on letting her do her thing...BUT there's a respect between them. She takes him into consideration when she knows she's doing something risky and does everything in her power to negate the risk and to let him know exactly what's going on so there's no question if it goes bad.
In this book there were more vampire politics. Stefan...love him. Wulfe...I like him too and think in the end of the series he's gonna be a serious ally too. He's so slippery, but I think he honestly admires what Mercy is able to accomplish and I think that will end up working for good. The whole story with Marcelia's car cracked me up through the whole book. I loved everyone's reactions when they would see the car and then find out it was hers. It's that thread of humor that flows through these books which just puts them above-par for my enjoyment levels. These stories make me laugh and they make me cry, but above all I adore Mercy and her neverending fight for what's right...no matter the cost. That right there is the perfect Urban Fantasy set-up and why this continues to be one of my top UF series reads ever!!
And yes, Lorelei King continues to be brilliant in her narration of these books. Wow, that woman has talent!
Since discovering audible I have become an avid "reader" I have been able to read more books than I ever thought possible, as I am dyslexic. I love self help, thrillers, sc-fi, so much more.
Yes I would listen to it again. The end was confusing I think it was out together out of order
In this book I liked Wolf best. Although he was in the story for just a small while his role was very important in the outcome of the entire story. He is a complex character with his own agenda but does what is best for the whole not always for himself.
Love her preformance as always
I did tear up when the pack lost Peter
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Yes, because it has everything in it for anyone
Mercy is my favorite because she just lowers her head and bulls forward.
The fight at the burned warehouse.
Reader of things.
I'm a die hard series reader, unless the series becomes completely unbearable. I have hope that Mercy will stop blathering on about her "mate" and feel her own strength. However, I'm becoming skeptical
No, but I'm getting tired of potentially strong female leads succumbing to sappy romance with that romance taking over the plot
I have recommended this author and this series to many people. The author has created wonderful characters that are believable despite the fact that it is a fantasy series and the characters have otherworldly abilities.
The author makes it easy to believe and become part of Mercy's world. That characters can transform shapes, fly, do other supernatural things, doesn't make them inhuman or keep the reader from identifying with them.
King is fantastic in all her performances
I listened to it non-stop and I've listened to it more than once.
