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.

    "Wow"
    Would you listen to River Marked again? Why?

    I would listen to this book many more times. Not only was it well written and entertaining but the narrator did a great job.


    What other book might you compare River Marked to and why?

    Can't really compare this book to just one. There were things from different books but the way that Patricia Briggs wrote this is also different than anything else.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lorelei King brings character or spunk to the characters. I find that enjoy her individual characters but then there are characters that are brought to new life. her voice is captivating.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Two unique newly weds get more than they bargained for on their honeymoon.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to the next book. I loved the work done on all these books.

    Story
    "Left me confused."

    I was really enjoying the whole series, read it all in a weeks time. I was so happy to get to the last book to see how it would all end to find myself asking 'Who wrote this one?" I guess I was expecting more with Mercy and the pack them working out their difference, but she jumped to tie up a loose end with Mercy and her Dad. I did not think this was a loose end due to the fact the guy was suppose to of been dead this whole time. All the riddles he speaks in and some of the other's left me confused as to what was going on and who was who. Never did manage to quit understand If that man was her Dad or not. Then we end the book with Mercy's letter to Adam....Didn't she live? So why are we ending the book with the letter?
    I felt jilted since we never got to see them settle all the differences and never really got to see the romance between the H/H. Now I ask, was this really the last book in the series??? I hope not, too many things were left undone.

    "Slower pace ... I still liked it"

    I think the author was somewhat less inspired when writing this book - but that resulted in a more leisurely pace that I still enjoyed. There was more character development and background and less raw plot. I especially enjoyed that she branched out into Native American magic.

    With previous books in the series I hated having to pause the playback when I got to work (I listen to and from work). With this book it was much easier to pause ... but I still liked the book a lot.

    My only complaint is that that the author must have read earlier reviews about her stories being a little to PG (hard to believe with vampires running around, but true). At the end of the last book, and throughout this book, she tried to venture into an R rating ... but you could tell she was uncomfortable with it. I would have preferred continued discretion to the awkward introduction of more sex.

    "Mercy kicks butt again!"

    My favorite of Brggs' work, this series is great. With a steely heroine and the best of the storyline. I love the narration and the stories Briggs creates.

    "H. E. A. for Mercy!"

    This book was wonderful to read for those of us who have been rooting for Mercy to have a Happy Ever After. So glad she finally CHOSE someone, and it was an entertaining end to the series. Though it would be nice if it continued, as I love the narrator, and there are so many other aspects of this world that can be explored. Great conclusion to the question of "who will she end up with?".

    "Great Story from a great writer"

    Briggs always brings a great story and River marked is no exception! In this one we get to learn more about Mercy's back story and we see the relationship with Adam develop more. Great pick.

    "Love the Story and Narrator"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great story and easy to listen to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters and the narrator


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice is amazing and keeps your attention. I've read a lot of books that are narrated by her and actually search them out. This is how I came upon this series.

    Story
    "Addictive!"
    If you could sum up River Marked in three words, what would they be?

    In River Marked Patricia Briggs hits her stride in this series, maturing the relationships between and among characters, and expanding the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercy continues to evolve and become more complex while staying true to character. We learn more about her and her past and her relationship to the worlds she inhabits. She is a very interesting person, and true to herself.


    Which character ??? as performed by Lorelei King ??? was your favorite?

    I confess: I would gladly listen to Lorelei King read the newspaper every day. She is absolutely the best, and she is the reason I decided to try this series of books. Her characterization of the vampires is fantastic.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed the tension between Adam and Mercy when he couldn't enter the water and she had to save the day. Go Mercy!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very enjoyable series, and the books keep getting better and better. Ms. Briggs has created a very interesting world and convinces us that it is perfectly normal for a VW mechanic to transform into a coyote. A cute one. If you are an author, writing interesting books featuring interesting women (and men), seek out Lorelei King to bring the story and your characters to life.
