Who is Mercer? Coyote. Soul Smuggler.
A body-hopping, phantasmal anti-hero. A disenfranchised spirit doomed to inherit the earth, cursed by both heaven and hell.
An enemy of god, but no friend of the devil.
Soul Smuggler collects nine Mercer tales.
"The Coyote" - In the future, Mercer's services are requested by a powerful man seeking to keep his stepdaughter quiet about certain indiscretions.
"Soul Smuggler" - An orphan boy seeks Mercer's help in reuniting with his dead mother.
"The Second Option" - Father Thomas, assassin from the clandestine Terra Sacra order, sets out to destroy Mercer once and for all.
"Abomination of Desolation" - A boy with horrifying powers is at the top of the church's extermination list, replacing Mercer for the time being. Father Thomas makes Mercer a deal he can't refuse if he helps rid the earth of the young abomination.
"The Coyote's Word" - When Mercer says he'll take a soul across the border, he's true to his word. But navigating the afterlife is no easy feat, even for the Soul Smuggler.
"Back for Blood" - A ravenous monster is on the loose in the city, and a young nun seeks out Mercer's help. It may take a monster to get rid of a monster, but Mercer has never dealt with anything like this before.
"A Coyote's Revenge" - Armageddon is coming, and the devil wants his due: those suicidal souls Mercer has been escorting to the Pearly Gates.
"Mercer's Ghost" - In this weird western, a young man on the frontier in search of fame and fortune instead finds himself swindled and left destitute. But help arrives in the form of a phantasmal, body-hopping gunslinger who seems to have ulterior motives.
"Coyote for Breakfast" - In this post-apocalyptic tale, a young girl grieving after a recent loss seeks out Mercer's help, but both she and the soul smuggler get more than they bargained for.
Would you consider the audio edition of Soul Smuggler to be better than the print version?
I haven't read the print version of the story. It may be hard, because of Mercer (Mike Vendetti) and his deep, gruff voice.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Mercer because he is the star of the book, and he is such a turn-on.
Have you listened to any of Mike Vendetti’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, I haven't, but it won't be my last time!
Who was the most memorable character of Soul Smuggler and why?
Mercer, again because he is the star of the story, and has that gruff, deep voice!
Any additional comments?
The author turned me onto Mercer and the story by allowing me to win this audio book. It will not be the only one I will listen to. I plan to buy more as my pay allows. Thank you to Mr. Milo James Fowler with all of my heart and soul. I loved this story, and Mercer.
