Have Mercy: listen to another Mercy Thompson chiller.

I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
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.
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.
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!
Would rather read under a tree on a summer day, than work.
Love mercy Thomson. This is one of the best series I've read in a long time.
Ben , the character Ben has developed nicely. A back story is provided for him.
All in all I recommend this series.
I've read the entire series through a couple of times before deciding to listen to the Audible version. I've enjoyed the narrated story and think it adds another layer of enjoyment. it's also convenient to multi-task while listening, meaning there's more time to spend with the characters than reading itself allows.
#TakeMeAway ~ Love to be swept away by a great story and narrator!
I am so mad at myself for waiting so long to listen to these books. They are awesome and I am enjoying them so much and will continue the series until I get caught up!
Iron Kissed was great. The reading was excellent. I was kept on the edge of my seat through out the entire reading.
I love all of the Mercy Thompson novels! Patricia Briggs is an amazing author! If you like the Mercy Thompson novels, you should check out Patricia Briggs' Alpha and Omega novels; they, also, are great novels!
