    "Love this series"
    What did you love best about Iron Kissed?

    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!


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

    the rape scene. I was going through the waves of emotions a long with Mercy.


    What aspect of Lorelei King’s performance would you have changed?

    I think she did of very good job of portraying what I imagined Mercy to sound like.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I honestly don't know.

    "This one is a bit more intense."

    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.

    "Great w/keeping up with original story."
    If you could sum up Iron Kissed in three words, what would they be?

    Great Character dialogue


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

    The descriptions of the Fey.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    the characters were each in their own life like,they didnt sound like their dialogue was being read by the same reader. I wish she did more of the reading on other audio books. she keeps you interested.


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

    Yes!!...haha to work, at work from work,home, and gym:)

    "Hooked"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm so hooked on this series! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes supernatural, fiction series.


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

    Her different voices for each character are great. All her different accents are even all on point. I get a kick out of hearing some of them.


    Any additional comments?

    If you liked it from the beginning keep on reading because they just keep coming back with more good stuff. I like how there's just enough romance, and not too much blood and gore. I just love it.

    Story
    "Love Mercy!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definitely and I already have. I have read/listened to all 6 books (including all three Alpha and Omega) and I am patiently waiting for the 7 Mercy to come out in March!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the story line between the main characters - especially Adam, Samual and Mercy. But what I especially liked in this story was the walking stick, I think I need one. And as you read/listen to more books you will come to learn more about the walking stick and how important it is to the stories moving forward.


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

    I must say that Lorelei King is one of my favorit narrators...I don't have many as most narrators cannot make their voices sound like so many different characters. She reminds me a lot of Khristine Hvam in the Chronicles of Elantra, both narrators don't even have to say he said she said w/o you knowing which of the characters are speaking. Truly amazing and she is keeping me from actually reading any of the Mercy Thompson series. As much as I love Holter Graham, I wish Ms. King was also reading the Alpha and Omega series too.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many...but I don't believe in spoilers.


    Any additional comments?

    All of the Mercy Thompson books are a must listen!

    Story
    "Love the Werewolves and Faes Interacting"
    What did you love best about Iron Kissed?


    Yes. I love the storyline. I love Lorelei King's narration. She brings the characters to life. I have recommended the entire series to a friend. Anyone who likes romance and adventure would like this series.

    This book closes some doors for Mercy, she chooses between Samuel and Adam and gets involved in the world of the Fae. It is a strong story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercy of course. She is just a marvelous example of how a single woman should behave. She is confident but not as confident as she pretends to be. She helps out her friends.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    I like the way she changes her voice to get just the right inflection. You can actually hear Adam growl. She has great changes in her accents of different characters. She does an excellent job!


    I am so happy that she reads the Stephanie Plum novels. Can't wait.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If you thought your neighbors were bad, just wait and see who Mercy lives next to.


    Any additional comments?

    The Patricia Briggs' stories are so riveting that re-listening is almost required. Every time I listen to a book a 2nd or even 3rd time, I pick up more nuances in the characters.





    I love the entire series. Ms. King is a terrific performer. She brought the story to life.

    "Very enjoyable!"
    Would you listen to Iron Kissed again? Why?

    Yes I'll probably listen to the entire series again.
    I like the charactors, and how the author continues each of the books without repeating from the previous books.
    I bought the 1st 3 in the series when they were on sale, now I'm going to have to pay full price for the rest of them because I have to listen to the end. They are just that good!
