I looked forward to the potential of more George RR Martin works, since he is an outstanding author. However, I was sorely disappointed by the majority of the tales.
Since this was a collection of short works, the endings depend upon the individual story, but for the most part, they were rather uninspired
The narrator was a bit tiresome, so I think that I would not seek him out for fantasy/sci-fi works.
Not on a bet.
This did not live up to any of my expectations at all. Maybe I had hopes of more Storm of Swords, etc.
This book has the least amount of romance and strongest development of Mercy as an individual.
Lop-sided, limited, adequate
If one is already a Mercy Thompson fan, then the book has soon cool twists, but the initial focus on the wedding is off putting. If someone hadn't read the series, this is not book with which to begin
I wish that the fae aspects were more developed and that the author would quit having Mercy and her "mate" gush over one another
The idea of an outcast, lone "coyote" being raised by a wolf pack and carrying lots of dark, unresolved, super natural baggage in the guise of a kick ass mechanic really intrigued me. The idea of the independent female involved in preternatural mysteries as the lead won me over. Unfortunately, romanticism began to edge past other aspects of UF plot
The door was open for a variety of future plot lines, which left the present story adequately resolved and I felt inclined to go to book 2
She tends to fall out of character a bit and seems to have a limited range of vocal characterizations
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
As a Mercy Thompson follower, I looked forward to moving forward in the storyline. While the potential was there, the story became too fractured, formulaic, and under-whelming
I'm looking for a new Dark Urban Fantasy series that has decidedly less romance & much more dark, paranormal or preternatural elements
The narration pace was adequate, but the narrator often forgot to stay within character voice.
I became so disappointed that I began to space out, but wanted to have closure - although I suppose I do, in a way (any number of likely formulas will proceed)
Mercy began as a strong female lead and by the last couple of books, she became such a stereotypical woman needing a man for strength. It was quite irksome to have another woman become half of a couple.
This one is one of the better ones. The characters become more developed, as does the setting and story lines
Aside from Rachel, I rather enjoy Ivy. She's both tough and sexy.
Rachel Morgan and company creates a glimpse at A supernatural side if the Midwest at its most entertaining.
The series just gets better, so I wouldn't change anything
I've read them all and crave more
Smooth, captivating, creative
Read more Kim Harrison
As a person from Cincinnati, I enjoy the attention Harrison takes to local detail
Sure - it's a unique twist on both magic fantasy and detective fiction genres. It does, however, require a niche taste for late1920's sentiment
No one character stood out as my favorite as they each held their own in the plot line.
His ability to character act, alter his voice, and add nuance to the narration was superior. I loved him.
Memoir cum fiction
Kinsey, of course. She is the alter ego of Sue Grafton. Kinsey exist during the part of the 1980's when I felt amazing and adventurous. I seem to meld into Kinsey for a variety of reasons.
Her voice is so dynamic
