    "Love it"

    It was just too short for me I wanted more!! But as a story I suppose just the right amount of length. It was wonderful to see Mercy and Adam together and away from the pack. I can see their bond has grown strong and steady as ever and that they know each other really really well. After reading so many descriptions of Adam's gorgeousness, I'm starting to wonder who does he look like LOL (any suggestions?)

    A bit of spoiler alert




    Compared to the other books, this book is definately written for the fans of the book. I mean the wedding, getting Stephan out of the gutter, finding out about Mercy's mom and sisters and of course her DAD! There were so many tidbits that were so enjoyable for the fans.

    THe greatness of the series is that Mercy and Adam are supernatural and tough but not invincible. There are consequenses to everything that they do. This book is no exception. Not only for the injuries but also how the "monster" was killed. I like how the walking stick was taken care of the end. I wonder if it will stick with the Coyote or come back to Mercy like all the other times.

    I now eagerly await for another book.

    PS I hope Stephan finds some sort of happiness soon.

    "Not my favorite of the series"

    This was actually my least favorite of the Mercy books. I was so looking forward to it too. It took a long time for the story to build to any action, and then it was just over. I missed the interaction of the main characters with the rest of the pack, and the wedding was over before it even began. The chemistry between Mercy and Adam didn't seem to be there as much. I actually just wanted it to be over and hope the next is much much better. :(

    "Wonderful"

    After book 5 I had thought Patricia Briggs had lost direction with her Mercy character. I am very pleased with River Marked it brings us back to what made me fall in love with this series to begin with. A full cast of the characters we know and love yet continuing the story line in a way thats not repetitive. A wonderful book on its own and a great addition to the series. Lorelei King does a very good job narrating a must listen.

    "Awesome"

    I was very excited to find that in River Marked we get to see a more romantic side of Mercy as she and Adam take their relationship to a whole new level. While River Marked is a bit different from the previous books in that there is more romance which I loved. There is still gritty violence and some intense action and Mercy is still the star of the show. This series continues to be a favorite and Lorelei King an amazing narrator.

    "One more in a very good series"

    This story includes many previous characters, but adds quite a few new ones, and I hope we get to see at least some of them again. The story has moved in a new direction, adding depth to the story and the characters. I especially enjoyed the humor - there seems to be more of that this time. I'm really looking forward to book 7! This series is one that I have listened to several times, and I plan to continue to replay. Ms. Briggs writes a very good story, and Ms. King brings it to life.

    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.

    "Another great Mercy book!"

    I really enjoyed this book, as I have all the other Mercy books. It had a great blend of romance and action, though I would like it if PB made her books a bit more steamy. I really liked that Mercy learned more about her heritage and found more shapeshifters. I liked that Adam played a large part in the story. The narrator does an excellent job of both men and women's voices.

    "This story line is nearly out of gas"

    I found the story moderately interesting, but it lacked the punch of the earlier ones. In particular, dealing with the current big bad monster by the poor little coyote seemed to be formulaic and lacked the suspense. Far below the first two or three stories. Still enjoyable, but disappointing.
