    "Strong continuation - Strong Story"

    Book three does not disappoint. Briggs brings more to the table than just a fantasy novel through-line. These novels so far take on the feeling of a fantasy thriller without being over the top with magic hoo-ha. Mercy continues to be the focus while the author meticulously adds color to the supporting cast.

    In this book, you will not hear from the Vampires. Rather this book is focused on the Faye. Also, in this book does Mercy resolve the love triangle or not? I won't tell but this book surly does. I also like the way Briggs brings her messages to bear without hitting you over the head or preachy.

    King is as fantastic as ever. Keep reading this series, Briggs continue to bring it. Thumbs up.

    Maddie and I, are a dad-daughter combo who love audible books. She has recently started to write reviews also. I hope you can differentiate.

    "Well written with great characters."

    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.

    "Iron Kissed"

    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!

    "The series is going down hill"

    This book is primarily about the fae as Mercy tries to prove her friend, Zee, did not commit murder.

    She is constantly in situations where she needs to be rescued by one of her friends and even calls herself 'stupid.' She makes a lot of mistakes that someone else has to fix. That is why I feel the series is going downhill. Mercy was not the strong woman she has been in former books. I am surprised that she came back from her “experience” as well as she did.

    I don’t want to give anything away, but this is by far the most graphically violent book in the series. I am glad that Ms. Briggs didn't go into too much detail on the specific event and had the rest of the cast supporting Mercy through her trauma.

    "Good Story, But..."

    Great story, I loved the ending, but I hated Mercy's attitude toward her whole Sam or Adam dilemma. Neither character is a good fit for Mercy, and are both quite dangerous. Mercy even comments at one point that she is afraid of them. I feel this makes her seem weak willed. It almost sounds like abuse victim mentality at one point. It takes an otherwise well written, strong female lead and cast her in the role of an abused damsel. One of the characters even says to her, "You are mine now, and I'm keeping you" and she accepts it! For a supposedly strong, independent, and downright obstinate female lead, this seems out of character.

    "ehh."

    the first two were great, and i will listen to book 4, but this one went off the rails early and just never got much better. perhaps her publisher had a deadline or something, but it seemed like everything from chapter 3 to 11 or so was useless fluff. everyday tasks and lost plot line. culminating with the rape and subsequent public embatrassment of the main character, i was left wondering if the author had a more serious issue with the publisher and if this was retribution. generally...just not good. and i was dissappointed by the repetitive borrowed theme across many of these fantasy books with female leads. two males pining away for the same woman while she cant make up her mind, solves the crime, and then sorta chooses while the males patiently wait without fighting. naieve and ridiculous. i really enjoyed the author's werewolf series, and this was doing well right up to book 3. heres hoping 4 gets back on track. suggest skipping this one and just getting the recap in 4.

    "AWESOMEEEE"

    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
