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.

Ms. Briggs takes us through a serious bit of drama during the first few pages of the book. This is followed by a fun-filled, joyous and even sentimental section, which I absolutely adore! Have no fear, the majority of the book follows Mercy on a roller coaster ride complete with new scenery and characters. Each book has fleshed out characters in the series and this book finds more details of Mercy's back story being fleshed out in between the action packed and thrilling story. I highly recommend this book and if you like it even half as much as I do, you will find the book well worth your time and purchase. Enjoy!
I absolutely, 100% LOVE the Mercy Thompson series, and the characters introduced in this book were fantastic!! I loved getting to see a little bit more of Mercy's back story, I love the complexity of the characters and the complexity of the action and mystery. These books are exciting, romantic, adventurous, dangerous, interesting, clever and fun-I became so immersed in these books that while reading them I was constantly looking forward to getting in my car to hear more! This series has definitely got me hooked on Patricia Briggs! Also check out her Cry Wolf duo of books, which deals with the same family of characters. GREAT SERIES!!!
I got sucked right into this series it is so good. I love Lorelei King as narrator, thats why i started this series in the first place. By the time I got to the 6th book I knew I world not be happy with the ending, With no new books on the horizon. Mercy Thompson's life does not do happily ever after.But there is hope for these characters yet, and I would happily recommend this series to anyone who likes colorful characters and a little magic.
Best if read in order.
Patricia Briggs continues to deliver with the Mercy Thompson series. River Marked is the best of the series to date!
My title says it all for me. The story is really good and read well. Having got sucked into this series, it was a nice to have a location change and to have a First Nation aspect.
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 :(
If you are a Patricia Briggs fan, you are going to like this book. It starts out a little slow, but ends with a bang. I have liked her books from the beginning and this one is no different.
Great book for Mercy fans. The music at the beginning is so annoying- why do they do that?
