Blood Bound: Mercy Thompson, Book 2

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

    "Best one of the series!"
    If you could sum up Blood Bound: Mercy Thompson, Book 2 in three words, what would they be?

    This book has the least amount of romance and strongest development of Mercy as an individual.


    What three words best describe Lorelei King’s performance?

    Lop-sided, limited, adequate

    "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! ;)

    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

    I've always loved books. Even before I could read I've loved them. Fact or Fiction, I love books. I'd sooner read a book than see a movie.

    Story
    "A Skin Walker and a Vampire Walk into a Bar...."
    What did you love best about Blood Bound: Mercy Thompson, Book 2?

    Her characters and their relationships become more developed. The relationships between and the understanding of fae, vampire, werewolves, ghosts and skin walkers become more clear. A new paranormal element is added to the mix, demons. Mercy's love interests and friendships are very interesting. The demon is much more scary than all the other paranormals and I enjoyed that tremendously. Her 2nd book is better and one can't help but want to read more books in the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That vampires are not as romantic as other books tell it. I liked the ghosts in this book and how they leave clues only Mercy can pick up on.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her accents for the vampires and some of the fae were spot on.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh and left me wanting to sleep with my head under the covers too.

    "Don't let a little grease stop you."

    Right away Mercy gets into trouble, this time with demon possessed vampires. From the get go we are off and running and the story only gets better from there. Read this series in order. As usual Lorelei King is awesome. I have already downloaded the next book. Suggested series Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich, Charlie Davidson by Darynda Jones, Monster Hunter by Larry Correia, Sookie by Charlaine Harris, Elder Races by Thea Harrison.

    "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?

    "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.

    "Excellent"

    Ever since the Twlight books, I have had a hard time finding books to fill the void. These books do the job! Excellent reader too!. If you like this try the Kim Harrison or Carrie Vaughn series too.
    All excellent reads.
