Publisher's Summary

Mechanic Mercy Thompson has friends in low places - and in dark ones. And now she owes one of them a favor. Since she can shapeshift at will, she agrees to act as some extra muscle when her vampire friend Stefan goes to deliver a message to another of his kind. But this new vampire is hardly ordinary - and neither is the demon inside of him.

Have Mercy: listen to another Mercy Thompson chiller.

    "Blood Bound"

    Wonderful series! The author and the reader are an incredible team. This series is a great mixture of fantasy, suspense, action and romance. The characters are really rich and fun. The romance between the two main characters really enhances the story, but doesn't bog the story down. I don't read romance novels, but a little romance and sex in a book like this is fun. The author develops the romance between the two characters thru the series and makes it intriguing to watch. It's fun, sexy and easy to believe. Each book is complete enough to stand alone, but it's better to read the books in order since some things are built on what occurred in a previous book, but not dependent on it. The reader is really good and is able to develop voices and stay true to them thru the series; you know exactly who is speaking all the time. I highly recommend this series and have to a lot of people!

    "Great Series gets better!"

    The whole paranormal thing has caught on -- and let's face it, some of the series are not that great. Not so with this one. Briggs writes a great character who has her reasons for being tough and self reliant. But Mercy changes over time, as she should, and watching the characters grow and develop is the real fun of reading this series. With a brilliant performance by Lorelei King, I highly recommend!

    Just Another Audiobook Addict! Love listening to all types of romances, but occasionally need a good Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or a book with humor!

    "Action, Suspense and Great Charcters!"

    I really enjoyed listening to this book and learning more about "Mercy Thompson's" world.

    There is action, suspense and great characters; I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the series! (I only wished I had not waited so long to read these books!)

    "A Sequel that's better than the original."

    BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front) - Moving from the Werewolf arena to the Vampire one, I found Blood Bound to be more exciting and captivating than Moon Called. Definitely listen to them in order as there are a few new characters, but this series seems to be furthering each characters development as the storyline progresses.

    Plot - WIthout giving away any spoilers the book picks up a couple of months after Moon Called ended. The author does not spend a whole lot of time recapping every aspect of the Werewolf's but touches on the main points and get's right into the new dilemma at hand...Vampires. With the Vampires as the antagonists in this book it interesting to hear yet another author's rendition of the 5 W's with respect to Vampires. Because there was less time spent setting the scene (already taken care of in Moon Called) pretty much the entire 9+ hours was spent solving the crime and further developing the love "triangle" that spawned in the last book.

    Narrator - Despite not being one of my personal favorites Ms. King once again does a good job. You'll rarely hear me complain about a narrator being brought back for the follow-on books and with a few exceptions I enjoy her voice inflections and ability to smoothly transition between characters through only using her voice.

    I've enjoyed the Mercy Thompson series so far. The narrator is good, and the story keeps my attention. Looking forward to the next.

    "Hmm..."

    Ok... I like Mercy's character... She is brave and willing to go ther for her friends... But... I dony consider her a bad arse or tough chick... She dont fight... I want to go further in this series but... She is not bringing it enough for me... Now if u want a tough lead female character try Illona Andrews Magic series... Now THAT is action... Im wondering if all the people that wrote such strong reviews about this story are the author's friends... I just dont get it...

    Poor Mercy! What's a walker girl to do, when all those big strong alphas are sniffing around? kick butt and take names, of course! this professional sounding book was very well done, and the choice of narrator was perfect.

    "Mercy is one brave lady!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes...great story, nice bits of humor, and well developed characters make this series a pure joy to listen too!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Bound: Mercy Thompson, Book 2?

    When she finally finds the demon dude....she had to really harness all her strength to get the job done!


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    Shes interesting...she does not have an overtly feminine voice, but its perfect for Mercy, Mercy is more of a tom boy...and she makes it work perfectly!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes and no....I did listen to it pretty quickly though...lol


    Any additional comments?

    Love this series, starting #3 now! lol

    "This is a great series."

    I took a chance trying out a new author when I got this book, and I am so happy that I did. The whole series is good. I like the fantasy and paranormal genre, but I've never been big on werewolves. This series changed my mind. If you like the Sookie series by Charlaine Harris, give this one a shot. The reader is EXCELLENT! Her voices are amazing.

    "Excellent 2nd story in series"

    A demon possesed sorcerer-vampire runs amuck in the Tri-Cities, and its up to Mercy Thompson, mechanic and coyote "walker" to rescue her werewolf and vampire friends. Very good story, second in the series, and we learn more about Mercy's background, watch her juggle a love triangle between two werewolf beaus, and in general kick-ass while staying likable and relateable. I love the narrator's performance! Excellent voices for each character.
