    "started slow; picked up"
    What did you love best about Moon Called?

    How Mercy was calm most of the time even when she was mad. She is a lovable character. I enjoyed her and her thoughts.


    What other book might you compare Moon Called to and why?

    Vampire for Hire series by J. Rains. They may be different species but they are both do gooders.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    She put a lot of thought into the characters. I was able to assume more about the characters by the way she understood them. It brought more depth to the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I listened at work and in the vehicle.

    "Mercy is a Terrific Character"
    What did you love best about Moon Called?

    I loved the way it was read by Lorelei King. The characters are well developed and I love that Mercy is an independent female AND knows how to live and survive with werewolves. I like fantasy and supernatural stories so this one is perfect. I am glad I discovered this series. I'll keep reading!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that Mercy is female and independent and able to connect with a great variety of supernatural beings.


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

    No. This is my first experience with Ms. King but I will look for her reading in other books. She is very good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Mercedes is not just a car....she's a Skinwalker!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the book and have already ordered Book 2. Will be reading them all!

    "Nice listen, interesting characters"
    Where does Moon Called rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm kind of on the fence with this one. I kind of lost track of the story, but I enjoyed the action and the characters. It's no great work but fun monster fiction.


    If you’ve listened to books by Patricia Briggs before, how does this one compare?

    NA


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    While some of the characterisations and or accents I thought were maybe unimaginative, she generally helped me distinguish between the characters and get the gist of the story.


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

    When the were Mercy was trying to help winds up dead and the followup from that scene.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this first one to try out more.

    "Great story if you like the supernatural."
    What did you love best about Moon Called?

    The story was very well written, and the characters were well developed. There was a lot of action. The world of the supernatural characters was well developed.


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

    The character of Mercy Thompson was the best part of the book.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    She does such a good job you get lost in the story and don't notice the narration. Voices for each character are specific and fit the personality of the character. The vampire was a little Bela Lugosi, but still worked (not too over the top).


    Any additional comments?

    The only drawback for me was that I am not interested in vampire, werewolf, gremlin etc.stories. The subject didn't interest me much, but the story; the personalities and interaction of the characters; and the narration were so good I still enjoyed the book.

    "Moon called is a good listen"

    The story was excellent and the narrator was on target with the different voices. The first book was so good that I moved on to buying all the rest of the series the same day. If you like Jim Butcher - Dresden files, Kim Chance and Kim Harrison - the Hollows series, you should really enjoy this series too. I have put this series on my "look out for new books" list and would recommend it to anyone interested in paranormal fiction.

    "1st Mercy Thompson"
    What did you love best about Moon Called?

    The characters they were so believable to me. Just enough of fiction to make you think yeah that would be what they are like.


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

    When that were all in the room with the "bad wolves" downstairs.


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

    I loved Mercy but Jesse was a close second. Of course the male wolves all sounded yummy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but it was great to be able to listen at different driving times too.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be reading (listening) to this whole series. I am hooked now!

    "takes a bit to get in the flow"
    Would you listen to Moon Called again? Why?

    I am planning to listen to Blood Bound the next in the series as the Character are interesting if a bit typical for an "urban" fantasy


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

    i found it typical to the book type


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Lorelei's reading was OK but i found the inflection not as deep as say Johanna Parker who reads the Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries or Marguerite Gavin who reads for the Kitty Norville .


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Once i was into it yes and I did
