Wonderful narrater. She made the series even more enjoyable by being involved with the characters and seeming to enjoy the series herself.
Yes I would listen to this book again. It keeps you wondering who is doing what. And it is very different compared to other books I have listen to.
I love love love love Lorelei Kind is the best, again I can listen to her on any audio she makes it sound great.
I would recomend this book and this series to anyone. It's a two thumps up!
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.
Entertainig creature tale.
Merci, of course, because of the way Lorelei King presenter her, she seemed real to me.
This is my first listen to her. I have put LK on my short list of favorites, so it won't be last.
When Mercedes was using the language that all mechanics use in an effort to loosen an obstinate bolt.
How Mercy was calm most of the time even when she was mad. She is a lovable character. I enjoyed her and her thoughts.
Vampire for Hire series by J. Rains. They may be different species but they are both do gooders.
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.
No, I listened at work and in the vehicle.
Great characters that draw you in
Compares to Jeanine Frosts half way to the grave series
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!
I liked that Mercy is female and independent and able to connect with a great variety of supernatural beings.
No. This is my first experience with Ms. King but I will look for her reading in other books. She is very good.
Mercedes is not just a car....she's a Skinwalker!
I loved the book and have already ordered Book 2. Will be reading them all!
Stay-at-home mom who loves to listen to books while she's doing housework
I got so involved in this book that I felt like I was part of it
There's not one thing it's all the stuff put together that made it really good and interesting
She makes you feel like you're really listening to Mercedes!
This is a must read fell in love with the book right away
I drive truck and have alot of time to spend listening to books. I like zombie, vampire, and fantasy books.
Great story line. I flew through the book in no time. Can't wait fir the next.
All of them
Love how she makes her voice for each person.
