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.
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.
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.
Without a doubt, it is Mercy. She has spunk and refuses to be dominated by any male, even if he is a werewolf.
Adam - loved the voice Lorelei King used for this character.
Well worth the listen!!
I love all R.A.Salvatore books!!!!!!!!!!!!
What i love about this book is that its very hard to stop listening to it every moment kinda jumps out at you and u can pretty much feel and see what they are feeling at that moment.. I couldn't stop listening to this book i actually listened to the whole book in one day...

Between 1 - 10 I'd say an 8.5.
The threat to eat her cat.
Yes she is awesome as a narrator!
I could have if I had the time.
This is a playful fun book. I wouldn't rank it as a great piece of literature but it is fun and easy to follow.
Reader, writer, teacher, consultant. I read mostly Young Adult and Genre Fiction, especially with a mix of literary style and commercial pacing.
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.
When Mercy went back "home".
The two werewolves in Mercy's living room.
There were a lot of laugh out loud moments. I really like Mercy's voice.
Fun, Fun, Fun!
I enjoy Lorelei King very much and as always, she did an outstanding job!
While i am only writing on Book 1...I highly recommend them all....they really are a fun book and I love Mercy!
I really enjoyed this book, I didn’t love it but I enjoyed it. It was a nice easy listen. I liked Mercy aka Mercedes Thompson, the heroine in this book. She wasn’t over the top bad ass but was confident enough in herself, knowing that she’s not a wimp but strong. There was werewolves, fae and vampires all introduced in this book.
Mercy is a coyote or walker, which is almost an extinct species. She’s also a car mechanic. She was raised by wolves (werewolves), the most prominent pack in the U.S. at that. We are able to learn a little about her background and especially her relationship with Sam.
Adam is very intriguing. He is the Alpha of the local wolf pack. There is definitely some serious sparks flying between those two and I can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
There wasn’t much different from the typical UF books. Conflict, fighting, mystery, murder, possible love interest and conflict resolved with a little left open for the future.
The narrator did a great job, no complaints there.
Keeps you interested,very vivid imagery!!!
Very Well done by Lorelei King,you would've thought there were several readers.
I'm not looking for deep meaning, strong messages or socially redeeming. Give me interesting characters, some laughs and fun plot twists!
I tried this book because I was looking for a new series. I got pulled into the books very quickly. Mercy is a strong female lead who takes no crap from the bigger and badder out there. She's sarcastic, caring and smart.
The books are about the paranormal and the mystery - without a lot of the romance baggage.
I found the setting - the Tri-Cities in Washington and Mercy's "day job" - a mechanic to be refreshing changes from so many of the other series out there.
I'd say the book is worth a shot - and a good intro into the series.
