    If you could sum up Moon Called in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, Fun, Fun!

    "Nice start"

    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.

    I'm not looking for deep meaning, strong messages or socially redeeming. Give me interesting characters, some laughs and fun plot twists!

    "Sucked me in! Fun paranormal!"

    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.

    I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.

    "Great Books you can listen to again and again"

    I highly recommend the Mercy Thompson series - I don't know why I haven't rated them until now but I've listened to them over and over. Go ahead and get the whole series (as well as Alpha and Omega - I'll list them in order below).

    Mercy is a coyote shifter who grew up in a werewolf pack but has been on her own for about 15 years. A few years ago the local werewolf pack moved next door and she's been avoiding the alpha ever since. She's managed to stay out of crazy trouble until a young man walks into her garage looking for work.

    Mercy is a mechanic. She fixes VWs in a garage she bought from a fae - oh, and the fae have come out to the public - when her mentor Z revealed himself as a gremlin. THe guy she helps out just happens to be a newly made werewolf and before she can get him help he's in a heap of trouble and Mercy throws herself into the mix. Vampires, fae, werewolves, and she's an oddity among them all.

    Love the character. The writing is well thought out and the plotline is solid even if it leaves you wanting more - which is good since there are 6 others not to mention a spinoff. READ IN ORDER: Moon Called (MT1), Alpha & Omega (novella), Cry Wolf (AO1), Hunting Ground (AO2), next five Mercy Thompson books (MT2-6), Fair Game (AO3), Frost Burned (MT7).

    The narrator lacks a big. King sounds like she has dentures or something - her Ss are weird and she says "car" in a way that makes me cringe. And car is a word we hear a lot in these books. However she does a great job with male voices so I let the denture thing slide.

    I always feel weird saying stuff about myself. I love to read and have recently decided that I also love audio books. Most of the audio books I have listened to so far, are also books I have read. I listen while I work so it's good if I already have a general idea of the story so I can focus on work and not miss anything. I am a general believer in re-reading books that I love. I may have read some over a dozen times by now.

    "Mostly Loved it"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would, but only if they refused point blank to read the book, yet would consider the audio version.


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

    I really can't compare it to anything because I haven't read anything quite like it. I love this book and this series. I have read them a couple of times each.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed Lorelei's portrayal of Mercy Thompson but I am sad to say that most of the other characters all sounded too much the same. If Adam, Samuel and three other men without accents were in the same room it was really hard to tell which one was speaking until the "Samuel said" or "Adam growled" parts came. I would, however, still listen to the other Mercy audio books. It is a small thing that I can push past. I did find her ability to speak Zee very impressive though. There is random German thrown in and she spoke it very well.

    "Good to get your mind off traffic"
    Where does Moon Called rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A favorite to listen to again and again.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    The voice of Mercy is perfect. The voices of the men are okay but differences in major roles not apparent. You still get the general idea and I enjoy listening to her voice as I fight DC traffic.


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

    The other paranormal


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the series that I rotate back to every couple of months. It is generally cheerful but has enough depth to make me forget the traffic an want to stay in the car to finish each chapter.
