Publisher's Summary

Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She's never known any others of her kind. Until now.

An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River - one that her father's people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help....

Have Mercy! Listen to another Mercy Thompson chiller.

    I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!

    "Fun and quick!"

    Mercy is such a fantastic character. Trouble follows her everywhere including her honeymoon. While Mercy and Adam are camping, we finally learn a little more about Mercy???s father and what it really means to be a Walker. This is a short listen and the story has a nice pace to it. Lorelei King is back and wonderful.

    "A Very Nice follow-up book."

    This is a very nice follow-up book in this saga. It is about time we see a little more about her Native American powers and magic.

    I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.

    Story
    "Learn more about Mercy. Do miss out."

    This series continues to hold my interest. One of the strongest virtues of the series is Briggs continues to round out the characters. In each novel we learn more and more about the priciplals in the backstory of an interesting story-throughline. In this novel, we learn a great deal about Mercy's background and meet individuals from her heritage. Does Mery get answers or more questions than answers? Pricipally, this novel has Mercy and Adam as the main focus, but this novel is all about Mercy.

    I know some readers find warewolves, shape shifters and vampires passe. If you like her ealier books you should read this one, you will like it. You could read this one first and then start at the beginning of the series. I think it more enjoyable if you start the series from the beginning. Lorelei King is a master narrator and does a fabulous job as always. She does the Stephanie Plum series as well (another general hit -- 22 and counting).

    I highly recommend you read this next installment. I give it a big thumbs up.

    "Not my favorite in the Mercy Thompson Series....."

    I am a big fan of of the Mercy Thompson series....I love all of them except for this one. Part of the reason I like the Series so much is the fact that all of the characters are worked into the story line some how. This book just seemed to revolve around Adam and Mercy....I missed hearing Warren's smart remarks, or comments from the pack, didn't hear much from the vampire Stephan and nothing at all from Z. I just found it boring. I look forward to the next book, but I wasn't fond of this one at all.

    "River Marked: Mercy Thompsln, Book 6"

    Excellent narration, however, I am disappointed. I have loved the Mercy Books up until now. This one seems too "gushy" romantic and spends a lot of time focused on the relationship between Adam (the hunk wherewolf) and now Mercy's mate/husband. What has kept me buying all of Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thomas adventures is our heroin's independance, smart mouth and her ability to fight her enemies while staying loyal to her friends. In this book, Adam and Mercy get married hence alot of the book's dialogue is spent on how Adam makes Mercy feel, how good looking he is, and their "Pack Bond". We don't get to hear much about Stephan the vampire, Zee, the Fae, or dialogue from the other werewolves. I sincerely hope that Patricia Higg's next book gets back to the Mercy and friends rather than the Mercy's inner dialogue about Adam.

    "Slow boring romance"

    I may edit my review, as I am only 2 and a half hours into the 8+ hour book so far, but I felt compelled to write. At this point Mercy says, "Life with Adam wouldn't be boring," and I found myself saying out loud, "not like this book, then."

    Seriously, I am over 2 hours into an urban fantasy and almost no action, mystery or fantasy has occurred. Instead, the reader/listener is treated to a lame over-written romance. I've read/listened to the other Mercy Thompson books before, and, apart from my distaste at Patricia Briggs' decision to 'rape' her strong heroine in an earlier book, I have generally enjoyed them, but I am struggling to continue with this one. I am wondering whether this is because this book is actually much worse than the others, or whether it is because I have come across a much better series since, in the shape of Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels books. The latter have their faults, but if you are looking for Urban Fantasy starring a strong heroine, they are much more fun and action packed. I have also re-read the Dresden Files since reading the other Mercy books, and compared to those (the No. 1 urban fantasy series imho) this is a harlequin romance - very disappointing :(
