Publisher's Summary

'I didn't realize he was a werewolf at first. My nose isn't at its best when surrounded by axle grease and burnt oil....'

Mercedes Thompson runs a garage in the Tri-Cities. She's a mechanic, and a damn good one, who spends her spare time karate training and tinkering with a VW bus that happens to belong to a vampire. Her next-door neighbour is an alpha werewolf - literally, the leader of the pack. And Mercy herself is a shapeshifter, sister to coyotes. As such, she's tolerated by the 'wolves but definitely down the pecking order. As long as she keeps her eyes down and remembers her place, the pack will leave her in peace.

"I enjoyed every minute of it. I love Mercy and can't wait for her to kick some more ass." (Lilith Saintcrow)

    "Very enjoyable book very well narrated"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - it has a good story, the principle character is very likeable and the narration is excellent


    What other book might you compare Moon Called to, and why?

    Its in the same lines as the Sookie Stackhouse ( but without the sex) and Jane Yellowrock ( our heroine is also a shifter ) stories. It is set in our world but where Vampires and Werewolves and other Fey characters are very active. There are some subtle differences and the Werewolves have a bigger role than Vampires in this book - bit of a hint in the title there. If you like the Stackhouse/Yellowrock books you will probably like this


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

    Not yet but I will and hope she is as good in those


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me laugh in a few places


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed it and will be downloading the next book in the series soon

    "Brilliant"

    I loved this book, and I will definitely be getting the rest. Mercy is a great character. She feisty, funny and cheeky and she doesn't let herself be pushed around. I also really like the fake that she's not supernaturally strong or stunningly beautiful, she's just a normal woman who happens to turn into a coyote. It makes her much more believable and likeable as a character, plus we all love an underdog.

    The narrator did a good job and has a pleasant voice, which made the book enjoyable to listen to as well.

    Overall I really liked this book and would happily recommend it to others.

    "4th time."

    This is the 4th time I have listened to this audio book and would happily listen again. Weather it's good or bad, I have a thing for lorelie King's voice, she brings the book alive. I have listened to all books that she has narrated and she is amazing. This book and the whole series is fab.
