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.

    "Independent women"

    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'.

    "Just a fun story"

    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.

    Story
    "Too much and disturbing!"
    Would you try another book from Patricia Briggs and/or Lorelei King?

    I don't know.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Patricia Briggs again?

    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.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    I wasn't awed, but she was fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    Mercy's actions towards the end were naive and the consequces of those actions were extremely upsetting. I will not continue reading this series.

    "Mercy the dedicated and strong!"

    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!

    Story
    "Gripping, and moving"
    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    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.

    Story
    "Can a fae kill?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Iron Kissed to be better than the print version?

    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.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    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.


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

    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.


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

    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

    Story
    "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.
