Publisher's Summary

The third novel in the international number one best-selling Mercy Thompson series - the major urban fantasy hit of the decade.

Mercy Thompson: Mechanic, Shapeshifter, Fighter.

It wasn't hard to follow the scent of blood to the living room where the fae had been killed. It had been a violent death, perfect for creating ghosts.

Mercy Thompson enjoys life as a mechanic, but life is never simple given her increasing closeness to the local werewolf pack, and her ability to change into coyote form at will. And when a member of the fae community calls in a favour, needing her skills for a covert murder investigation, she jumps into the hunt.

But the dangers multiply and she clashes with shadowed creatures of great power. When her old boss Zee is charged with a brutal assassination, Mercy find herself fighting alone. There are those who love her, who would keep her safe, but she is wary and holds her freedom precious. Until, that is, she has nothing left to lose but her life....

Critic Reviews

"Brigg's third novel featuring [Mercy] Thompson (after Blood Bound) is another top-notch paranormal mystery; her well-balanced contemporary world, where humans live uneasily among werewolves and fae, is still a believably lived-in world; the ever-present." (Publishers Weekly)

Great but where are books 4-7?

Why on Earth does Audible have books 1-3 and 8 but not those in between?

Great story but darker than the others

What did you like best about this story?

Great story Couldn't put it down nice to develop a different group in this case the story centres around the Fae

Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favourite?

Mercy of course

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes it has it's lighter moments and makes you laugh at times but this one is more likely to make you cry

Any additional comments?

A few problems with the audio with some skipping which is a bit annoying
Even more annoying is books 4 to 7 in the series are not available on audible.co.uk. They are available on Audible.com though so they already are recorded.
I requested them weeks ago but still not available here just bizarrely book 8

Wonderful series- more please!

Where does Iron Kissed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of my favorite books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mercy is a brilliant protagonist. I love how strong and loyal the character is.

What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Lorelei King doesn't sound how I expected Mercy to sound but she does a great job bringing to life a wide variety of characters.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book is one of the darkest of the series and, ahem, I might of cried a little... But it also has warmth and humor in it.

Any additional comments?

I loved this book and the second I finished it I immediately came to audible to download the next book in the series only to find Bone Crossed is not available. PLEASE make the whole series available on audible!

Excellent

This is my favourite series and I listen to it regularly. Mercy is a great lead character and I enjoyed the development of Ben's character in this installment.

must read - but audio glitches <br />

Love this series, I have read the books many times and thought I would give the audio a shot. There are a few jumps where you miss a paragraph or two, which is annoying and or I can keep regardless of already reading the book or not. So even though overall it was decent, bare this in mind.
