    "Decent read, but obviously a "part 1" of many"

    Yup, it's another urban fantasy book rife with strong female characters, various supernatural baddie baddies, and hints at love-triangles. The sad thing is that if this wasn't written by the same formula as most books in this genre, I would give this a much higher rating. It's not that it's a bad book - it's actually really good and better than much of what I've read in the genre. It's just that there isn't much new or original in the plot, the universe, or the people.

    Like most urban fantasy books I've read, this one spends book 1 doing a lot of introducing what different types of critters can do, what their weaknesses are, and setting up a bunch of "unanswered questions". What's in her past? Oooh, why is she an orphan? etc etc

    The reading is decent, but some of the characters blended together in my mind and I fault that, at least in part, to the reader. As a first person perspective book, narration by a woman makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately, almost every other character in the book is a man and the reader makes them all sound like gravelly jazz singers.

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

    Entertainig creature tale.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Merci, of course, because of the way Lorelei King presenter her, she seemed real to me.


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

    This is my first listen to her. I have put LK on my short list of favorites, so it won't be last.


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

    When Mercedes was using the language that all mechanics use in an effort to loosen an obstinate bolt.

    Story
    "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!
