Publisher's Summary

When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder and left to rot behind bars by his own kind, it's up to shapeshifting car mechanic Mercy Thompson to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not. And she'll have to choose between the two werewolves in her life-whether she wants to or not.

Have Mercy: listen to another Mercy Thompson chiller.

    "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.

    "Much darker than the first two books"

    This book was much darker than the first two books. I'm not terribly sure how comfortable I was with that change but the story was well told

    I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!

    Story
    "This was a shocking book..."
    Would you listen to Iron Kissed again? Why?

    yes...it was wonderful...but shocking and tragic also....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercy of course...She is the epitome of a strong woman!


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

    She is a great narrator for this story....she has a strong feminine voice...perfect for the character of Mercedes Thompson...


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

    Yes....both!


    Any additional comments?

    I cant believe Mercy was so violated in this book....she is a very strong woman...and I am starting book 4 now!

    "Good reader. Good story"

    I tried this series because Lorelei King is one of my favorite narrators. Then, the stories kept my attention so well I have a hard time putting it down!

    Story
    "It needed a trigger warning"

    I love this series, I love Mercy, I love the world, but this book was hard to listen to. It takes an extremely skilled author to work with the themes in this book, so mad respect to Briggs for so deftly handling them. She evoked the terror and horror of the themes so well that they became real, as did King, such that I couldn't enjoy many parts of the book. The last book I read that has affected me like that was Kafka's "Penal Colony". Given that I reacted so viscerally to this book, even though I have never experienced anything like it, I would suggest that someone with PTSD from surviving rape, assault, or child abuse mentally prepare themselves before listening to this book.

    That said, I really appreciated the philosophy that Briggs used to frame the events (ie, being supportive, not blaming the victim), and I loved how she developed the supporting characters, especially Ben. I find Ben one of the more compelling supporting characters, in contrast to Adam, who she didn't really flesh out. Adam remained a ManlyMan(TM) with no major traits other than being scary/dominant/overprotective, so Mercy's relationship with him feels clumsy. At least the awkward, obligatory-feeling love triangle was resolved. I'm hoping future books will make Adam more interesting, and re-introduce some of the characters from previous books, like the child werewolf and Adam's friend Christiansen.

    The bottom line: I'm going to stick with the series, and my respect for Briggs and King as artists has gone up exponentially. I'm glad I listened to it, but it isn't something I want to listen to again.

    "Iron Kissed keeps it exciting"

    Narration by Lorelei was great, as usual, and the expansion of the Fae characters is exciting. can't wait to read more about them in the following books.
