    "I am really enjoying this series!"

    Setting: Contemporary, Eastern Washington state
    Genre: Paranormal suspense with romantic elements
    The story is about the arrest of Mercy Thompson's fae former boss for the murder of a human. Mercy knows it is connected to a series of murders on the fae reservation she helped solve, but Zee has forbidden her investigation into the crime. Well, being Mercy, she does what she wants. There's some well-written icky characters, both fae and human, and the suspense and mystery will keep you listening. On the romantic front, Mercy must decide which werewolf she wants.
    Definitely worth continuing this series.

    BTW, there's no sex in the series beyond kissing, at least through this book. The focus has been on the mystery/suspense so far.

    "More surprises..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It definitely continues to be an interesting look into the world of the supernatural, and it never gets boring.


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

    This book gets a little graphic in its violence. I understand why it was done, but it did make me cringe...and I still don't like to remember it. I guess that's a testament to how real the books feel.

    "Love this series! Each book keeps me coming back."
    If you could sum up Iron Kissed in three words, what would they be?

    Shocked,sad,happy. It is so shocking and sad what happens to Mercy. It shows that she puts the people she cares about before herself. But I think the ending is pointing towards a happy ending for her and Adam.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Warren, because he is a strong wolf who isn't afraid to be himself.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've only heard her in the Mercy Thomson series but I look forward to hearing her other books.


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

    Yes, when Mercy was being raped but tricked into believing she wanted it and betrayed Adam. I wanted to cry when she ran and hid out of shame.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the whole series so far. Listened to two books in one day.

    Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.

    "Be careful what you look for so it doesn't bite"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Iron Kissed to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed the audio edition, but never read the print one


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Iron Kissed?

    When Mercy refused to give up her investigation even though she'd been asked by several to quit.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I've listened to almost all of Mercy's adventures and this is in the top 4.


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

    Felt bad when Mercy had her free will taken away.

    "WOW!"

    This book took the series to a whole new level! With what happened to Mercy and how she responded to it. I also became a fan of Ben when he tried to make Adam see how Mercy felt.

    "I can't stop listening!"
    Where does Iron Kissed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Iron Kissed is another powerful and interesting story from Patricia Briggs. Her characters are three dementional and leap off the page in this latest installment of Mercy Thompson's adventures. They just keep getting better and I have to say she is one of the best authors I have read in a while. Top notch and well worth the wait!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Iron Kissed?

    No spoilers but the character development is always excellent with this author and something I have come to look forward to. This one has some raw and gritty action that is well written and takes the characters into some very dark directions of development.


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

    I love the way she works so hard to give her male characters gruff voices and drop their voices. She does a good job of keeping the same voice for the same character from book to book, which is important in a series as well.


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

    I hated to stop it but no, I listened to it driving so I had to stop periodically. I could have easily listened to it in one sitting though. It was very interesting and kept the attention very well. I hated to stop listening!


    Any additional comments?

    Everything I have listened to by this author has been amazing and I adore her characters and her writing style. I am very please that they have kept the same reader in this series and that she is consistent with her voices and does them so well. I look forward to many more to come!

    "Dang oh Mighty"

    Ok Seriously??? I don't like books that bring tears to my eyes. Dang oh freaking mighty! ARG! That part was both written and read well, I had to stop this book a few times. There are certain emotions I don't admit to having and I don't appreciate something bringing them out in me. Holy Smokes. Cheese is Crusty!! lol Some of the things Mercy says you just have to stop everything and write it down for future reference. This book goes over an event that no one should ever go through and the manipulation is so thick, I was ... Well I don't want to talk about it... If the next book exploits these emotions again, I don't think I will buy book 5.

    "Wow"

    This is one of the best books in the series as well as a turning point for the lead characters. It is a most read for those who are invested in the series.
