    "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.

    "Skin walker"

    This book is great for a few reasons chief among them is that in the midst of all the werewolfs is the walker and the myths around that not to mention all of the other fantastical creatures of the fantasy world stages in today's times. I think it's a great blend and makes for an interesting stage and future plots to follow the lead character, Mercy.

    "Werewolves and Vampires and Fae...Oh, My!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend. In addition to the great voice of Lorelei King, the story lays the groundwork for all future books about Mercy, Adam and all the other characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Without a doubt, it is Mercy. She has spunk and refuses to be dominated by any male, even if he is a werewolf.


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

    Adam - loved the voice Lorelei King used for this character.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the listen!!

    Between 1 - 10 I'd say an 8.5.

    The threat to eat her cat.


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

    Yes she is awesome as a narrator!


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

    I could have if I had the time.

    "Hooked on another series"
    Would you listen to Moon Called again? Why?

    Would definitely listen again. The world the author sets up is intriguing and I'm looking forward to reading more in the series, so I'll definitely go back to listen at least once more to get a handle on all the characters that will play in over the course of the series.


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

    When Mercy went back "home".


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The two werewolves in Mercy's living room.


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

    There were a lot of laugh out loud moments. I really like Mercy's voice.
