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.

    "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.


    Any additional comments?

    keep them coming!

    "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.

    this writer does an excelent job of wrapping you up in the story. The whole series rates at the top of my listening list.

    I like that the auther brought native american mythology into the her series.


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

    I really liked the coyote caracter, his mishevoious nature is amusing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It took more than one sitting since it was a decent length, and i only listen when i was in the car for the most part.

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

    Mercy kills monsters


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercy of course! Patricia Briggs' leading lady is back, and as cool as ever.


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

    She's better at differentiating character's voices than I am.


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

    Not really, there's plenty of laughs, action, suspense, ect...


    Any additional comments?

    While I admit River Marked isn't the best book of the Mercy Thompson-Hauptman series, it's still excellent. And as a guy who's a fan of strong female leads, I really appreciate that Mercy isn't a damsel in distress, nor is this series a romance veiled as an urban fantasy. Sure there's romance, but not smutty, but there's also laughs, action, suspense, and very well defined characters. I recomend the entire series to anyone who enjoys urban fantasies.

    "HISTORY!!"

    I love this series. This book gave readers/listeners & Mercy herself, history regarding her past, which did not derail the book's story but brought the story along. This is a great series, I can't wait until the next one!

    Story
    "A Bit of a Disappointment"
    Would you try another book from Patricia Briggs and/or Lorelei King?

    Yes. I believe both are gifted storytellers.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Patricia Briggs again?

    Yes.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nothing. Lorelei King does an excellent job and I've listened to many of her reads.


    Do you think River Marked needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. The story was very unusual, difficult to follow and way too far-fetched. I was very disappointed in this book.

    Story
    "Mercedes steps-up"

    I rate the fantasy novel River Marked (Mercedes Thompson #6) by Patricia Briggs 5 of 5 stars. This is the last of this series that is currently available. This story takes a different tact with Mercedes and Adam traveling on their honeymoon right into big problems with a River Fae. Why I say different tact is that this story was 90% Mercedes and Adam and the other characters in this world were minimal. Self-doubting Mercedes really has to step-up in this situation as Adam isn't as much help as usual. This was the most enjoyable story of the series and leaves me hoping Briggs will give us a 7th installment. Highly recommended if you have read the previous books. Overall I do recommend this series.
