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.

    Story
    "Mercy kicks Vamp butt!"

    Mercy Thompson is back in the novel whose focus revolves around the vampire seed. More specifically her friend Stephan. Briggs evolves the emerging love triangle in this book taking the tension for 1.5 to 2.25 out of 10. She is upping the stakes. As far as the plot goes, it's solid, engaging and makes the minutes fly by.

    Lorelei Kind does her usual excellent job. After two of these novels and am in for the third and forth. I'm hooked and I will read them all. I give this a solid thumbs up.

    Story
    "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

    "not a fan..."

    uh, yea this is way too PG / romantic for me. I expected a badass skinwalker she-killer, instead i got a mild mannered, sarcastic heroine. can't love 'em all!

    "Very good listen...if not a tad overly PG"

    While I really enjoyed this book and the first in the series; however, it loses a star for me because the writer goes very far out of her way to never to use swear words and her characters never get further than 1st base despite everyone being very attractive, available, and interested in one another. It is too PG and too squiky clean, making the protagonist not human in ways other than being a supernatural being! It is the opposite of HBO or Showtime, where swearing and sex are gratuitous. This is a gratuitous lack of sex or swearing, to the point of being irritating. With this said I will listen to next in the series, but will have to steal myself against vicarious repression of animal insticts. It is like the Twilight series in this regard....but those are supposed to books for young teens. Is this?

    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.

    "Didn't want to stop driving..."

    This was my second book in the Mercy Thompson series and I was not disappointed in the least with it. There's a new vampire in town and he's brought a demon with him. The plot involves both the local wolf pack and the vampire seethe, even getting some of the fae involved. But it is Mercy's ability to speak to ghosts that is in high demand. We find Mercy tracking a demon/vampire who brutally killed others and even though she was scared she didn't let that stop her from fighting, I found myself holding my breath along with her as she went into each scary situation and eventually she saves the day and her friends. I loved the story, love the series and as I am writing this am downloading book 3 in the series, Iron Kissed. Lorelei King is once again an amazing narrator

    "Thank you "Vivian""

    I just read the review from Vivian who complained there wasn't any swearing and sex never got past first base. That this is a 4+ star book without garbage "is" the reason I downloaded this and will now listen to it. I love great stories without having to flinch because of coarse and crude expressions that add nothing to the work except to irritate the inner senses. I hope it is as good as Vivian says! Love to get into new series and authors.

    "Loved it even more the second time around!"
    Any additional comments?

    I have so much love for this series! This was my second time reading this book and I can honestly say that I liked it just as much as I did the first and maybe even a bit more. One thing that I enjoy about re-reading books in series that I love is seeing how many things have changed for the characters. I love how some of the groundwork for future events takes root in earlier books.

    The characters in this series are wonderful. Mercy is awesome. She has a wonderful sense of humor and she is tough. She knows that she is not as physically strong as many of the people she surrounds herself with but she more than makes up for it in mental toughness. She isn't afraid to take risks especially if it is the right thing to do. This book actually has a pretty big cast of characters and I really love them all. Adam and Sam are both great characters. The members of Adam's pack are all so well defined that they really stand out as individuals. I think it takes real skill to bring such a big group of characters to life.

    The world building in this series is phenomenal. Everything just fits perfectly. It seems like each book adds another layer to the whole picture with complete consistency. I love all of the pack politics and learning about how all of these different groups have learned to live with each other. There were moments in this book that were quite creepy and I loved every moment of it.

    I really enjoyed Lorelei King's narration. Her voice fits Mercy's character quiet well. It was really easy to follow and I thought she did a great job differentiating between all of the different characters. I also thought that she did a great job in displaying all of the different emotions of the story. I can't wait to continue this series in audio.

    I would highly recommend this series to others. I think that anyone who enjoys urban fiction or paranormal stories should check out this series. I am a huge Patricia Briggs fan and can't wait to see what she can come up with next.
