    "Favorite Author!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Moon Called to be better than the print version?

    No. Nothing is ever better than having a book in my hand.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the pack is together in the end. The book captivates you and I couldn't help but to feel the chills and tingles myself.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Patricia Briggs and reading supernatural books! She is my favorite author. This book is amazing and the series just continues to get better!

    "Fun and slightly different take on werewolves"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if you like the genre of witches/werewolves/vampires etc, and you like a strong female protagonist, this is a good choice.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Moon Called?

    Right at the beginning when Mercy reveals her nature...


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    One of the reasons I tried the series was because Lorelei King was the narrator. I really like the way she manages to give voice to each character in such a way as to bring their personality to life.

    Story
    "A Werewolf, A Coyote, & A Vampire Walk Into A Bar"
    Would you listen to Moon Called again? Why?

    The first time I listened to Moon Called, I was captivated to continue the series. The characters are relatable, well developed, and are written consistently with their actions and words. The second time I listed to Mood Called after listening to the next four, I fell more deeply in love and caught things I missed the first time around as know I knew where it was going. I paid more attention so the second listen was priceless to me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love all the characters; each one is a part of the whole and deciding which one is favorite is ridiculous - of course, as a reader, the one I most relate to is Mercy. Her independent nature with the life long burning desire to belong is at odds with her internal being - for a while anyway. There are several moments where she realizes having both is quite possible. Quite like normal life - she never comes to bare on the fact that she is special - she is herself and that is good enough.


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

    Lorelei King is a vocal genius where you never have to guess who is speaking. It's remarkable really. Ms. Kings ability to send shivers down my spine when Adam is angry shows her true mastery in her performance. In fact I started this series because she was the reader.


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

    If you are deeply involved and have gotten inside the book as another world of existence, you laugh, you cry, you get very, very nervous, you feel elation and even triumph. It's an awesome ride.

    Go Mercy!

    "I will buy them all!!!"

    To start, I love Ms King. She is great. Has feeling and enjoys what she reads.

    As for the story. Good mystery, has an array of supernatural beings. Including a new one at lest for me. As the series progresses I'm sure we will get some romance which will make this even better.

    Suggest buying ASAP even if you don't have credits!!! Great read!!

    "Audible Audio version"
    How could the performance have been better?

    By using a different narrator! I was so disappointed when I downloaded this audible book. I love Patricia Brigg's Mercedes Thompson series, but for me, the narrator's voice just didn't fit the character. To me, she sounds like a white woman in her mid to late forties from the east coast, not a thirty year old mechanic, who tends to mouth off to werewolves. Even worse was her "voices" for the male characters in the book. I just can't listen to anymore of this audible book and unfortunately, she's the narrator for all the books in the Mercy Thompson series.

    "A great start to a series!"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish I could have sat and listened to this book all at once. The continued mastery and interesting plot kept me coming back for more.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a great start to a series. I had already purchased the two books in the series before I was half way through this book.

    "Surpisingly good!"

    I was hesitant to purchase this book, since typically I don't read or listen to vampire/werewolf books much. After reading the reviews and listening to the sample I decided to give it a try and was not disappointed. The story moves quickly and I love the characters. It is refreshing to hear a good book that is not ruined with a lot of vulgarity or profanity. Mercy is a gutsy, quick witted female protagonist that still manages to be down to earth and believable. I love her character and the way Briggs develops the story around her, revealing bits and pieces as needed. The narrator does a great job reading the story and I immediately purchased the next book after finishing the first. I highly recommend giving these books a try

    Story
    "Potentially strong female lead"
    What did you like best about Moon Called? What did you like least?

    The idea of an outcast, lone "coyote" being raised by a wolf pack and carrying lots of dark, unresolved, super natural baggage in the guise of a kick ass mechanic really intrigued me. The idea of the independent female involved in preternatural mysteries as the lead won me over. Unfortunately, romanticism began to edge past other aspects of UF plot


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The door was open for a variety of future plot lines, which left the present story adequately resolved and I felt inclined to go to book 2


    What aspect of Lorelei King’s performance would you have changed?

    She tends to fall out of character a bit and seems to have a limited range of vocal characterizations

    I love action and suspense embedded in a good fantasy or mystery. Sprinkles of romance okay, but no erotica please.

    I like this series and quickly become attached to Mercy. She is strong with real life issues mixed in with great fantasy. Love the werewolves! Very entertaining read.
