Mercy Thompson's life is not exactly normal. Her next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a VW bus for a vampire. But then, Mercy isn't exactly normal herself.

    "Don't judge a book by its cover"

    Yeah, I know... Cliche.

    I don't recall why I added this to my wish list. I believe I'd read some good reviews and it had a generally good rating, and it "looked like my type of book". Someone more recently spelled out (and I will to), this is not a romance novel. There's a little romance in it, but the book is sort of mystery/fantasy/action.

    After I got past the misconception and got into the book, it was pretty good. Though I'm typically a romance reader, I got into this book enough that I will probably continue on with the series.

    "WONDERFUL BOOK!"

    One of the better supernatural being stories written today. I am a lover of vampire / werewolf / magic beings stores and because of that I have read a lot of them. I found this one very entertaining and very enjoyable to "read". I will not call it the best, but I will definitely complete series in the VERY near future. I know others have called it a rip off of certain stories, but that can be said about a lot of stories. You probably could call almost all books published today a rip off of someone / something. A totally new idea is very rare in my opinion. I could be wrong, but if author writes about things people do not want to read, they most likely will be looking for another profession.

    "A new favorite"

    I finished listening to Moon Called and immediately bought the whole series in print and read them in a week. I then bought the audio of the 5th book of the series. To me the 1st and 5th were the best, but the whole series is extremely well done. Original and witty. Love that the female character is gutsy and independant. Romance is well integrated but definately not the focal. Could listen to this at work with out being worried about what others would over hear. Wasnt crazy about the voice of the male lead in Moon Called but for the record, by the last book this narrator was in her stride and every voice was perfectly suited to the characters. Other great thing about these as audio is that they are not that long but long enough. Best book this year that i have downloaded.

    "Love this series"

    This is a great urban fantasy series! This is the first book and I'm glad to see it on Audible and hope that Books 2&3 also come to Audible soon. Mercy is a VW mechanic working in Washington State. She is also a Walker who turns into a coyote who was raised by werewolves. She bought her shop from a gremlin, fixes her vampire friend's van (he's a Scooby-Doo fan) and lives next door to the Alpha of the local werewolf pack. Although the Fey have come out in public, most people don't believe in werewolves, walkers or vampires. She is trying to stay out of the public eye until one day a young, staving werewolf shows up asking for work -under the table. Mac is a young teenager who was attached and forced to change into a werewolf and then sold to people who are using him for drug testing. Suddenly, Mercy is pulled back to the world of the werewolves which she left at 16.

    "I (didn't) like vampires"

    I DON'T like vampire books. Don't. But ... somehow I missed that this one is about vampires, werewolves, etc, ordered and listened ... and quite enjoyed it. I guess good story telling trumps lame topic.

    "I Listen Over and Over"

    As the review title implies, I've listened to this book (and series) more than once. After having purchased more than 100 audio books, I've gotten picky. I want my books to be good, really good. And this entire series lives up to the hype, so much so that every few months, I listen to them again.
    One of the things makes this book so good for me is that it isn't all graphic sex scenes. Mercy is a strong, independent woman who seems to have a knack for getting herself into trouble with the fae, vampires, werewolves... you name it and Mercy comes in to contact with it. There is lots of action with a little romance thrown in (romance, not graphic sex).
    My daughter won't even listen to this series because she doesn't like the voice of the narrator, but I don't have a problem with Lorelei King. Although her voice is a little deeper than you would expect, I think she does a fine job.
    This series, along with Carrie Vaughn's Kitty series and JR Ward's BDB series, is one of the best, in my opinion.

    "Wonderful"

    I loved reading the Mercy Thompson series but I loved listening to it more. I have read all the books from this series and the Alpha and Omega series and was delighted to find that the Mercy Thompson series was now available in audiobook format. The narrator did an excellent job, I got totally lost in the book and didn't even think about the voices. I hope that the other books in the series are coming soon, I have a long commute to work and I'd love to be able to fill the time in listening to what's happening with Mercy.

    I have now I listened and read over 1500 books since 2010. Goodreads.com is a good way to find books and keep track of what you've read.

    "A great start"

    This is the first of a series written by Patricia Brigs. Mercy is a walker-coyote who lives among werewolves and vampires. Although we are at the end of the wave of this set of creatures as a fad, this novel does an excellent job of weaving plot. This novel is not a romance, although a love triangle is formed. This series reminds me of the Stephanie Plum series except Mercy is more serious and less, well, air-headed.

    Also, the series is narrated by Lorelei King. I love, love, love her narration. She also does the Stephanie Plum series -- one of the reason it reminds me of the series.

    This plot is a who-dun-nit to whom and why plot line. Anyone who likes thrillers, mysteries in a fantasy context will like this book. It is suitable for YA on up and it is a very easy listen. I recommend it.
