    "I love this series.."

    Mercy Thompson is a strong female character with a good moral code that she lives by. The story is interesting, the plots and action a plenty while keeping the main character real. She still needs to work to pay her rent; she deals with everyday issues, while also dealing with werewolves and vampires. Its a good mixture of reality and fiction and I cant' wait to read the next book in the series. I thought Lorelei King was perfect for the voice of Mercy, and she did a great job of giving the male characters different voices as well. I hope Lorelei King continues on as Mercy's voice in the other audio books, as I will be sure to buy them.

    "Great Series, Great Narration"

    This is a great series. I own the ebooks and have read them all. The narrator of this audio book is very good; great inflection, uses different voices for all characters and consistently follows through with them. Not all narrators do this and it makes a huge difference! The audio book really brings out the humor and gives great visual imagery as well. Narrators can make or break a series (e.g., Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward - fantastic series, but the audiobooks sound like they are being read by a sports announcer and just ruin it). Some other good paranormal series that also have audiobooks with good narrators are the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlene Harris and the Rachel Morgan Series by Kim Harrison. Enjoy!

    "Angst-free paranormal listen"

    This book had many scenes which got my blood pressure up. The fight scenes with the werewolves and the scene with the vampires were very well written and performed. I have now ordered the rest of the books in the series and am looking forward to learning more about Mercy!

    "A Favorite!"

    This is a book/series that I have loved for quite a while. It's probably one of my very favorite! I was thrilled when it finally came out in audio. The reader is fantastic! Now I just hope that books 2 & 3 are released on audio soon!

    As a side note, please don't judge the book by the cover. It is an edgy urban fantasy, but not a romance.

    "Great start to a series"

    This is my first time reading/listening to a Patricia Briggs novel. I really liked the narrator alot and thought she did an excellent job with all the voices and nuances of emotion. This first book was good and the main character Mercy is a strong female but not standoffish and I liked her right away. I'd like to see more happen with some potential romantic interests as it was barely touched upon in this book. Some interesting twists to a common storyline in fantasy literature right now (vampires/werewolves/fae). I have already downloaded book #2 "Blood Bound".

    "Great Story, Lots of Action, Not much romance"

    I tend to read the reviews from my fellow audible listener, so I thought I try and return the favor.

    I really liked this book. The main charater is very likeable. This is a hint of romance, but no action to speak of. And there is really no swearing. Hard to believe that you can actually have a great story with out it!!!!!

    The narrator is great also.

    Was this book worth my time and my money? YES!

    "How amazing"

    I read the book and enjoyed it. And to me, the narrator makes the story even better, as she adds a certain nuance of humor, life (dare I say humanity?) to what could have been a interpreted in a very dark and dour way. Feel safe putting yourself in the hands of this author, who knows her way around telling a story, and this narrator, who does the telling justice.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Great Paranormal Series!"

    I'm so happy Audible finally got book 2 so I could start the series. The author has an interesting take on shape shifting and werewolves that I really enjoyed. I know the books get even better and can't wait to start the next one.

    I also loved the reader. Too often the reader and the material just don't work together, but this is not the case with this series. I thought lorelei King was perfect for the voice of Mercy, and she did other voices, especially the male voices, very well. I'm looking forward to purchasing the entire series.

    Now if Audible would only get more of Patricia Briggs -- and Sci Fi/Paranormal series by other authors, too, I'd be so happy!
