    "Great series, you will love it"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I very much enjoyed this book and the series. The story and characters were intersting and easy to like. Since I listen to the books at work I was pleased to find the "romance" portions entertaining, but clean, which I really appreciate.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    Lorelei is a very good narrator. It is amazing the number of characters she can come up with. She is very clear when speaking, you always know which character it is. I enjoy listening to her.

    "GREAT SERIES!!!!! GREAT AUTHOR!!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Moon Called the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed listening to to this book. The Narrator was excellent and the story was captivating. I like the magic, mystery and the romance! Mercy is a strong, take care of yourself woman, who is smart. Adam is a man that is more than a beast! I Love the entire series, and Patricia Briggs is a believeable (Yes I know Werewolves do not exist) story teller.

    "Decent enough."

    Moon called is a decent listen. I liked the story and the narrator was good. I especially like the slow reveal that Mercy Thompson's has other powers and abilities . I'm really glad that there's more to her than just a shape shifting coyote.

    Story
    "A Very Good Rendition of Moon Called"
    Where does Moon Called rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    While my favorite audio books are Holter Gram's audio rendition of the Alpha and Omega series, this audio book comes close behind those.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Mercy Thompson. She is a wonderful main character who does the right thing even though she knows it will likely place her in a situation she would prefer to avoid (getting back involved with the wolves).


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    I think Lorelei King's voice was excellent for Mercy Thompson and her thoughts.


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

    I enjoyed listening to this book as I walked over a series of days.

    Story
    "Urban Fantsay in a fun new twist!"
    If you could sum up Moon Called in three words, what would they be?

    Outstanding series introduction


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercedes "Mercy" Thompson becasue in a world where there are so many things bigger and badder than she is, she still manages to hold her own.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Adam's daughter came over to chat with Mercy, while Mercy was baking cookies and she offered to Spary paint the VW bug in Merrcy's backyard.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Urban Fantasy, where Werewolves, Faires and Vampires all exist and have to deal with the perils of modern life, this is a must get series and this book is a great way to kick it off!

    I am addicted to audio books, mostly fantasy. I have alwayz loved to read but could never find the time. This way I keep my mind occupied with wonderful stories and don't get caught up in life's stresses. I'm so glad I found this site.

    "You go Patricia Briggs!!!"

    Mercy Thompson is plucky, high-spirited, stubborn and comical;. It’s a wonderful read, you won’t want to quit listening. I had to have the whole series; which keeps getting better and better. If you like paranormal fantasy, with the heroin that makes you laugh and gets into lots of trouble, you’ll love this book. Great narrator!!!!!

    Any additional comments?

    I am now addicted to this series! The narrator is great with the different characters, and not dull at all. I've noticed things I've read in other books lately are the same "myths" as in this book. I like being able to draw the line between backgrounds in fiction. If you like fiction, mysteries, and supernatural this IS for you.

    Audible junkie for sure. As a mom of three littles a wife and full time student, sitting down to read is so nice but also almost impossible
