    Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She's never known any others of her kind. Until now.

    BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front) Not one of the best Mercy Thompson books, this was a quick listen that progressed along nicely but was definitely one her best.

    Plot: As with the previous novels, this one explores the "supernatural" aspects of the Native Americans. As Mercy and Adam head away for their honeymoon there is little interaction with some of our other favorite characters from other books. Light is shed on Mercy's past and a knock down drag out battle between the Native Americans and a river monster ensue, but the ends of these books are starting to get a little predictable (SPOILER BELOW).

    Narrator: No complaints, Lorelei King is back and none of the voices changed!!! Two thumbs up for Penguin Audio!

    SPOILER ALERT - read AFTER listening!

    I think someone needs to explain to Ms. Briggs the difference between a "staff" and a "crutch." I'm not sure exactly when (which book) the wooden staff started showing up at a time of crisis, but come on, it's getting way too predictable. Mercy's in trouble, needs a weapon, POOF staff is in her hand. She loses it, POOF it's back underneath her. Hopefully coyote has run off the thing and it won't show up again, but why do I believe the entire next book is going to be dedicated to the origins of the staff and why the river monsters blood has turned it bad?!?
