Publisher's Summary

Gwen Miller may be a human, but she has no problem taking a stand against her own kind. She's going to testify against the teenage boy she saw viciously assault a lone shifter female - and no amount of pressure from the boy's wealthy family will make her back down. But when the harassment turns violent, help comes in the form of a lean, toned wolf with winter-gray eyes.

As a guest at Gwen's inn, shifter enforcer Zander Devlin can't help but notice that the fierce and leggy brunette is in serious trouble. Since she's putting herself at risk for one of his kind, keeping her safe is the least he can do. That's not the only reason Zander wants her close. He desires her, even as the wolf inside him backs away from her. But his feral instincts are hard to keep down, and as they take shape, they're harder for Gwen to resist. Then again, embracing them could be the only thing that could save her life.

what happened ?

I enjoy ALL Suzanne Wright books, I read them as soon as they're released. I started listening to the audio versions and fell in love with Jill Redfield's performance. I mean the way she does male character voices is pretty freaking great.

That being said - I'm not sure what happened with this one. Her female character sounded so bland and flat, absolutely no personality came through for me. There was really next to no emotion there for me. Also, for some reason, the reading was off too. She was pausing in places that made no sense, like in the middle of a sentence It's possible that maybe they were editing fails as opposed to narrator issues.

The story itself was great. Once again she's switching things around when it comes to the coupling. This was the first time we got a shifter/human mating and that was great. I do wish we'd gotten an inkling of Zander's scent as we have in the past books. As usual, we have a mate almost dying but holy cow, this one was freaking brutal.

Bottom line, I love Jill, I really do, but this was not my favorite rendition of Suzanne's books by her. The story was great, but they're getting a little predictable. Still, I can't wait for the rest of the series.

As great as those that preceded!

I was dumb founded by the negative reviews I read. This book was just as good as the others in the Mercury And Phoenix Pack series. My only complaint is that they don't come out quick enough.

If this is the first that you Are considering, I urge you to start with #1 of the Phoenix Pack. This books have very explicit sex scenes so if that bothers you, pick Another series.

My Thoughts on Lure of Oblivion

This newest addition to the Mercury pack series was a good one. It gives readers a new look at mates with two fantastic leading characters. This gave us a great chance to revisit with beloved characters from previous books. It had an excellent storyline filled with fighting, suspense, emotionally and mentally damaged pasts to overcome and of course love. This book would have been another 5 star winner for me, but some of the pet names Zander had for Gwen were a bit off putting and I felt like a little bit of Gwen's quirky side was reminiscent of Roni, and MaKenna, and Riley. There was enough distinction given to avoid a complete feeling of deja vu, but the random facts spouted (made up or real) or sentences left unfinished and things like that to get under the leading man's skin playfully has been done with a few of the leading ladies now. I love these characters but hope they don't continue to have such similar personalities going forward.

The narrator of this series continues to do excellent work and I love her voice for these characters. I would love to check out more by her in the future.

Did not disappoint

The only disappointing thing about this book is that now that I have read it. I have to wait for the next one. The story was good. Love to get lost on the shifter world. Zander and Gwen’s story was touching. The narration was excellent as always with Jill.

Disappointed

I hate to say it but this one was the worst I have listened to the Phoenix Pack series and the Mercury Pack series multiple times and loved them but this one was slow and boring. There has always been repetition but mixing that with boringness and I barely finished.
Suzanne Wright is a great author but she dropped the ball on this one

Just like the others!!!!

I was a bit worried when I read other comments about this book but as I love Suzanne's books I went ahead and got the latest installment.

I actually liked this story a bit more than some of the others. It moved along fine with just the right amount of raunchy scenes in all the right places.

I hope more of the books come along soon and maybe some of her other works.

Excellent job by Jill Redfield again.

Done that, been there.

I liked this story but all the stories in the series are starting to sound the same. I liked the characters but the Phoenix pack is my favorite. I’m not saying that I didn’t like the story, but the humor from the first books is missing and again the stories all have an underlying theme that needs to be changed up a bit or maybe the characters need to be more than the same one done over with only a different name. Unfortunately, I’m still irritated at the Mercury pack for their attitudes in the previous book, that it has soured me on the series as a whole. The only real twist was the ghost part, but that was only a small part of the story. Narrator does a good job.

Another winner!

Suzanne Wright has done it again. She created a hero and heroine perfectly suited for each other, then wrapped a suspenseful story around them that led to an exciting climax! Loved the ghostly apparitions, too. The narrator did a fantastic performance, giving the characters emotions and depth. You just want to read more about the two packs. Can’t wait for the next installment!

Raw and intense

Suzanne Wright writes another sizzling shifter romance for the Mercury Pack. Zander Devlin and Gwen Miller meet when he is taking care of personal business and he stays at her foster mother’s B&b. And in traditional pack intensity they jump in the help Gwen when she takes a stand on behalf of a cougar female. Good plot with intriguing back stories for both. Hot hot hot

Usual formula pretty much as I expected

If you are familiar with the Phoenix Pack and Mercury pack books from Suzanne Wright you will know exactly what to expect and are unlikely to be disappointed.

If not don't start here but start with Feral Sins as the books will work better starting at the beginning.

Usual guff - Feisty Damsel needs some help, enter brooding male who just has to help. Both have issues and don't see to start with they are destined for each other, some steamy sex, then the baddies get a bit out of hand plunging all into dire peril - you can guess the rest.

Great literature it isn't but its all good fun, and if you like the formula this is a good listen. Jill Redfield does her normal excellent job. If you like the predecessors in this series you are unlikely to be disappointed with this one.

Loved it! (As expected)

I always love Suzanne Wright's books. They are unapologetically bold and sexy. This book is no exception. And I love that each book in the Phoenix Pack and Mercury Pack series allows the reader to revisit with couples from the previous book and experience how the packs develop. It is so easy to commit to the series.

Suzanne Wright and Jill Redfield make a stellar combination. Suzanne writes these incredibly bold paranormal stories with strong opinionated characters and Jill's performances bring them to life.

Thoroughly met my expecations!! Loved it!

it was good to meet Zander and Gwen. The supernatural was a perfect zig and adding Corey the mix was a clever zag. hope Suzanne is writing more. I've finished the Phoenix and mercury tales and am a bit lost....I'll miss them all

***Into oblivion***

As always another winner from Suzanne Wright wow i am not looking forward for this series to end one bit, i am completely addicted to the Phoenix and Mercury packs. Zander and Gwen story is as magnificent ad those previous ones, it is thrilling, dark and decadent, witty and deliciously sexy as sin. It has everything you need in an amazing story. I have experienced happiness, exvitement, suspense that made me bite my nails and heart break that made me cry, and its all because of Jill Redfield narrative she is without a doubt one of the best female narrators if not the best in the audio world. thank you xoxo

Yep she did it again

Once again Suzanne has written an amazing story that keeps you hooked the whole way through. I can not wait to see which of Suzanne's characters will decide their story should be told next but I have already deposited the money in the I don't care what it is box but I am buying it
