Have Mercy: listen to another Mercy Thompson chiller.
©2008 Patricia Briggs; (P)2009 Penguin
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.
Hands down, I love a audio book over a print book. The only exception is if the narrator is the author. Sometimes this doesn't work out very well.
We get a closer look at the fae world and their reservation. Her boss's background is slightly reviled. Mercy begins to finally make a choice between Sam and Adam.
I don't really have a favorite performance. She did a good job reading for the darker fae characters, which sent chills down my back.
There were moments of laughter, but in this book I felt chilled and frightened for Mercy.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
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.
It definitely continues to be an interesting look into the world of the supernatural, and it never gets boring.
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.
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.
Warren, because he is a strong wolf who isn't afraid to be himself.
I've only heard her in the Mercy Thomson series but I look forward to hearing her other books.
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.
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.
I enjoyed the audio edition, but never read the print one
When Mercy refused to give up her investigation even though she'd been asked by several to quit.
Yes, I've listened to almost all of Mercy's adventures and this is in the top 4.
Felt bad when Mercy had her free will taken away.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
I like this series so far. I like the fact how strong Mercy is, how independent and cool too. I love that she finally chooses who she loves!
the rape scene. I was going through the waves of emotions a long with Mercy.
I think she did of very good job of portraying what I imagined Mercy to sound like.
I honestly don't know.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I liked this book very much, but I have a hard time with what happens to Mercy in this one. I'm not sure if I could read this book again. I hope that it doesn’t change Mercy too much. This series needs to be read in order. I still wish the romance between Adam and Mercy was a bit more, although it is getting better. I always felt that Samuel was more brother like, than lover like. I was warming up to Ben in the last book and now I like him even more. I really like the characters in this book and to me that is a big part of the books. I also really like the world she has built and I plan on reading the remainder of the series.
