When her former boss and mentor is arrested for murder and left to rot behind bars by his own kind, it's up to shapeshifting car mechanic Mercy Thompson to clear his name, whether he wants her to or not. And she'll have to choose between the two werewolves in her life-whether she wants to or not.

Have Mercy: listen to another Mercy Thompson chiller.

    "Better and better"

    I am a huge fan of Faith Hunter, so at first I wasn't sure of the Mercedes Thompson character as she didn't seem to be as strong. But the characters are growing on me and I like the way each novel gets better. Go Mercy!!!!

    "Brilliant, deep and awesome!!"

    Briggs touches on important real life issues and wraps them into an amazing story of love, action and triumph. I have listened to this book several times and it never gets old.

    Story
    "brought tears to my eyes"

    now it could of just been the fact that I was extremely tired. it having been my first back to work at my third shift job after a long weekend, but I believe it is the way the author describes in great detail the events that take place and the way the narrator makes you believe that u r there, a part of the story, that made me feel so much listening to this book. I truly had tears in my eyes. I highly recommend not being around people, they might think you are nuts when u start crying for seemingly no reason

    Story
    "A very emotional but satisfying entry!"
    Would you listen to Iron Kissed again? Why?

    Hell yes! I loved this book! It's a rare kind of story that delivers a chapter so tragic that it made me so sad, but it ends on such a wonderful/ high note that made me so happy in the end for the characters. King's narration is top notch, bringing the right level of emotion to the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Apart from Mercy and Adam (who became a pure badass in this book), I would chose Ben. He was always a funny interesting character with a potty mouth, but he gets more developed in this book. He delivers a very emotional/ heartwarming speech to Adam about Mercy in chapter 12 that made me gain so much respect for him as a man and character. It's the kind of speech you wouldn't expect from a character like Ben who reminds me of Vinnie Jones.I'd also chose Honey who goes completely against expectations in a good way. Instead of being the "other girl" which usually plagues stories like this, she's shown to be very caring and respectful towards Mercy especially in the end .


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I almost hate to admit it, but THAT scene in chapter 11 is the scene that left a major mark on me that no book has ever done. It was so tragic and traumatizing, I had to pause for a minute because of how much it affected me. While there is magic in this scene, it's handled very realistic and believably. But I loved the aftermath of it more when Adam shows up to save Mercy. Just how far he was willing to go to save her to holding on to her and never letting go in the midst of the chaotic scene . If I were Adam, I would have done the same to protect a woman I love. We see the process Mercy goes through after it all and we really root for her overcome it.I might sound a bit shameless here, but I also enjoyed Mercy's strip scene in front of the lawyer she hired in order to prove she was a coyote shape changer. I found it very funny and sexy at the same time. But the lawyer's expression is what makes this scene for me.


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

    Oh yes. This book is so easy to get into and easy to enjoy. King's narration is great and makes it better. I'd love to listen to it again and again. I just need to be mentally prepared for THAT scene.


    Any additional comments?

    As a man in his late 20's, I'm shocked at how much I love this series. While I may not really be part of the targeted audience, I don't view this as a guilty pleasure at all. It's an amazing book series and it deserves a live action adaptation. I'd go with a T.V. Show on H.B.O so they can get away with more. LOL.

    Story
    "The series is going down hill"

    This book is primarily about the fae as Mercy tries to prove her friend, Zee, did not commit murder.

    She is constantly in situations where she needs to be rescued by one of her friends and even calls herself 'stupid.' She makes a lot of mistakes that someone else has to fix. That is why I feel the series is going downhill. Mercy was not the strong woman she has been in former books. I am surprised that she came back from her “experience” as well as she did.

    I don’t want to give anything away, but this is by far the most graphically violent book in the series. I am glad that Ms. Briggs didn't go into too much detail on the specific event and had the rest of the cast supporting Mercy through her trauma.

    Story
    "Good Story, But..."

    Great story, I loved the ending, but I hated Mercy's attitude toward her whole Sam or Adam dilemma. Neither character is a good fit for Mercy, and are both quite dangerous. Mercy even comments at one point that she is afraid of them. I feel this makes her seem weak willed. It almost sounds like abuse victim mentality at one point. It takes an otherwise well written, strong female lead and cast her in the role of an abused damsel. One of the characters even says to her, "You are mine now, and I'm keeping you" and she accepts it! For a supposedly strong, independent, and downright obstinate female lead, this seems out of character.
