Blood Bound: Mercy Thompson, Book 2

But this new vampire is hardly ordinary - and neither is the demon inside of him.

    "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!

    "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.

    "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.

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    "Great book with more Stefan!"

    I enjoy this series and really liked this book. This story line includes more of Stefan. I liked Stefan in the previous book and wished to hear more about him. We get that plus the ongoing Mercy/Adam/Samual triangle story line. Also, we get to find out more about what Mercy can do other than just shifting to a Coyote. Great book. I'd recommend it.

    "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.

    "Still on the fence with this series."

    Mercy can shape shift into a coyote and outside of having a good sense of smell, good hearing, she can sense magic and talk to ghosts. No super strength, just your average Girl who is a Mechanic ... lol ... Seriously just that alone made me want to buy the book. I don't have trouble believing in Fairies, Elves, Vampires or Werewolves but two things that I know don't exist in this world are Girl Mechanic's and Gamer Chicks. This is one of those books that just go a little bit beyond the point of keeping your interest. This book did leave me with a few questions... The main question about something that happened and the book even has it in the title, but... You know it is just one of those things... It happens right in front of your face, there is no doubt it just happened but everyone chooses to ignore it and after a span of time goes by even you are wondering if it happened.... Is it just me? I guess I am buying the next book! ;)

    "More rompping and less playing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Blood Bound: Mercy Thompson, Book 2 to be better than the print version?

    No they are both ranked the same. The narrator is great!


    What other book might you compare Blood Bound: Mercy Thompson, Book 2 to and why?

    It is the same genre as the God Save the Queen series, both pretty lighthearted, an easy read and fun.


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

    She is really terrific as a reader she manages to make each character distinct.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A Romp rolling good time

    "Just TOO"

    Too many characters. Too drawn out. Too boring. I wanted tell the author to "Just Get On With It." Not as good as the first book.
