Have Mercy: listen to another Mercy Thompson chiller.

Wonderful series! The author and the reader are an incredible team. This series is a great mixture of fantasy, suspense, action and romance. The characters are really rich and fun. The romance between the two main characters really enhances the story, but doesn't bog the story down. I don't read romance novels, but a little romance and sex in a book like this is fun. The author develops the romance between the two characters thru the series and makes it intriguing to watch. It's fun, sexy and easy to believe. Each book is complete enough to stand alone, but it's better to read the books in order since some things are built on what occurred in a previous book, but not dependent on it. The reader is really good and is able to develop voices and stay true to them thru the series; you know exactly who is speaking all the time. I highly recommend this series and have to a lot of people!
What is there to say, I am a 40-something professional man with kids who like to listen to light books while on the bus to work.
I suprised myself with how much I enjoyed this series and especially this book. I admit I consider Patricia Briggs a guilty pleasure as I don't think 30-something men are her target audience. But she tells a compelling story with a rich use of language and a deep understanding of how her characters think. I would recommend this novel to anybody looking for a no-brain escapist novel.
I really liked the first two books and now I'm looking forward to this "book goes way over the line to disturbing" as described in another review.
Another fantastic Mercy Thompson book! When Mercy's friend Z gets arrested for murder she does everything she can to find out who the real murderer is but this time gets herself in even deeper then usual and gets hurt physically and spiritually. Mercy finally comes to a decision between Samuel and Adam and who she really wants to be with long term. I love how these books are non stop from beginning to end. I actually really like the narrator Lorelei King. I don't find her breathy like some listeners and really enjoy her as Mercy. Maybe if I had read the books first I would feel differently. This is the 3rd Mercy Thompson book so if you haven't read them yet you definitely need to start with Moon Called the 1st book.
I am a "Life is Awesome! Strive to be Worthy of it." student of life kind of guy. Feeding on Chaos and Empowering the Good. Group Hug!
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.
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!!!!!
yes...it was wonderful...but shocking and tragic also....
Mercy of course...She is the epitome of a strong woman!
She is a great narrator for this story....she has a strong feminine voice...perfect for the character of Mercedes Thompson...
I cant believe Mercy was so violated in this book....she is a very strong woman...and I am starting book 4 now!
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a very good and engrossing book. We get one step closer to sorting out the Mercy/Adam/Samual triangle. Surprisingly, I actually ended up kinda liking Ben at the end of this book. This book does have some difficult points. Mercy has to go through some rough times but it was still a very good book and worth reading.
Book 3 of the Mercy Thompson book is even better than the first 2. The love triangle is really turning up the heat, and I can't wait to know what happens next!
I enjoy this series - this will not disappoint if you liked the other books. Just disappointed it had to end, looking forward to the next book in the series.
