My Thoughts on Iron Kissed

Another great addition to this series. I felt like new layers and dimensions to the characters was added in this one. There was some pretty heavy and emotional twists added. It was handled in a way that allowed me to fully grasp what had happened and even had me teary-eyed from the emotion, but wasn't told in overly graphic detail.

This was a very well written story and I look forward to reading more in this series and from this author

Well written with great characters.

I suprised myself with how much I enjoyed this series and especially this book. I admit I consider Patricia Briggs a guilty pleasure as I don't think 30-something men are her target audience. But she tells a compelling story with a rich use of language and a deep understanding of how her characters think. I would recommend this novel to anybody looking for a no-brain escapist novel.

Iron Kissed

Wonderful series! The author and the reader are an incredible team. This series is a great mixture of fantasy, suspense, action and romance. The characters are really rich and fun. The romance between the two main characters really enhances the story, but doesn't bog the story down. I don't read romance novels, but a little romance and sex in a book like this is fun. The author develops the romance between the two characters thru the series and makes it intriguing to watch. It's fun, sexy and easy to believe. Each book is complete enough to stand alone, but it's better to read the books in order since some things are built on what occurred in a previous book, but not dependent on it. The reader is really good and is able to develop voices and stay true to them thru the series; you know exactly who is speaking all the time. I highly recommend this series and have to a lot of people!

It needed a trigger warning

I love this series, I love Mercy, I love the world, but this book was hard to listen to. It takes an extremely skilled author to work with the themes in this book, so mad respect to Briggs for so deftly handling them. She evoked the terror and horror of the themes so well that they became real, as did King, such that I couldn't enjoy many parts of the book. The last book I read that has affected me like that was Kafka's "Penal Colony". Given that I reacted so viscerally to this book, even though I have never experienced anything like it, I would suggest that someone with PTSD from surviving rape, assault, or child abuse mentally prepare themselves before listening to this book.

That said, I really appreciated the philosophy that Briggs used to frame the events (ie, being supportive, not blaming the victim), and I loved how she developed the supporting characters, especially Ben. I find Ben one of the more compelling supporting characters, in contrast to Adam, who she didn't really flesh out. Adam remained a ManlyMan(TM) with no major traits other than being scary/dominant/overprotective, so Mercy's relationship with him feels clumsy. At least the awkward, obligatory-feeling love triangle was resolved. I'm hoping future books will make Adam more interesting, and re-introduce some of the characters from previous books, like the child werewolf and Adam's friend Christiansen.

The bottom line: I'm going to stick with the series, and my respect for Briggs and King as artists has gone up exponentially. I'm glad I listened to it, but it isn't something I want to listen to again.

Love mercy Thomson. This is one of the best series I've read in a long time.
Ben , the character Ben has developed nicely. A back story is provided for him.
All in all I recommend this series.

another fabulous story in the Mercy Thompson serie

I've read the entire series through a couple of times before deciding to listen to the Audible version. I've enjoyed the narrated story and think it adds another layer of enjoyment. it's also convenient to multi-task while listening, meaning there's more time to spend with the characters than reading itself allows.
