Have Mercy: listen to another Mercy Thompson chiller.
©2008 Patricia Briggs; (P)2009 Penguin
Love Patricia Briggs and Sherrilyn Kenyon and J.R Ward
I love this audible and I love that they use the same person for all of Mercy Thompson series. Patricia Briggs is one of the best. I read her books and listen to the audible over and over again
I really enjoy the independence of the female characters who live in a male dominated world. The suspense over the decisions that are to be made are just as interesting as the 'who done it'.
If you like supernatural you will enjoy Patricia Briggs. I personally like the werewolf stories but not as much the vampire . But overall good combination of touchy and funny.
I don't know.
Probably not. In addition to disliking the end, there is way too much internal dialogue, especially, during key moments throughout the book- it was annoying and distracting.
I wasn't awed, but she was fine.
Mercy's actions towards the end were naive and the consequces of those actions were extremely upsetting. I will not continue reading this series.
Say something about yourself!
Great book!!! Mercy tries to help her mentor Zee. In doing so she faces a very hard situation. However in doing so she is able to find out more about herself and those closest to her. She has proven that she is strong, dedicated to her friends and not a whinny character. LOVE her. We learn a bit about the 2 men in her life. I am hoping this will progress as I would like more romance for Mercy! Perhaps book 4 will!
Ms King is the perfect reader. She has a talent for making the listener "feel" the story. Great job!
I suggest reading in order. It will make more sense and being along for Mercy's development is great entertainment!
I almost never write reviews, but I knew I had to when this book actually made me tear up (and maybe cry a bit, too). Over the series, the characterization is wonderful, the action *moves*, and I got really invested in the characters. So much so, that the most compelling part of this book for me was after the action was over and the main plot problem "resolved"--because the aftermath of dealing with traumatic events was so searing and raw, the writing so true to character, and the voice-acting so good, that I felt like all of this was happening to people I actually know, people who are very real and whose suffering and successes truly move me. I can think of no higher praise to give than that.
Lorelei King is excellent. She has Mercy's voice and character spot on, but is still able to differentiate voices and characterizations of the other characters to the point that, when the action ramps up, you forget that it's one person's voice doing all the reading. You get to know the characters through her voice, and she does an amazing job of bringing them to life.
You know an audiobook and its performance are good when the minute you finish this one, you're online downloading the next one, just to find out how these folks are doing, and can't wait to see what happens next.
