    Would you listen to Moon Called again? Why?

    Really like this series & Narration is great.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercy is my favorite character because she is so human.


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

    Lorelei King is so talented & I have listened to many audio books she has narrated.


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

    Really, really like this whole series. Many places made me laugh even though it is mostly a drama.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought the whole series and wish it would not end.

    "Entertaining"

    This book was very entertaining, made my night at work seem to fly by. The narrator seems to have limited "voices" for the characters, but still does a very good job of allowing you visualize the story.
    Would definitely recommend this book, and plan on getting the rest of the series.

    "I've read the series...not sure about reader"

    Narration review: I love the series (have actually read the books). I like Ms King (Stephanie Plum series) but I wish the narrator chosen had a better variation of men's voices and that Mercy's voice was a "stronger" voice if that makes sense. More like Sophie Eastlake's narration of Merit in the Chicagoland series. A female character with grit that comes across in audio version.

    "Terrorist in the Werewolf World"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Moon Called to be better than the print version?

    I have this book in paperback, nook, and audio edition. I love to listen to this because it is very well-developed. This is the second time listening too.<br/><br/>


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercedes is my favorite because she does care enough to place her life in jeopardy. I'm also part Blackfoot, etc.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    Her performance is professional and you can easily hear the differences in characterization by her tone of voice.


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

    She frequently made me giggle


    Any additional comments?

    Love this series.enough to get other members of the family hooked on Mercy Thompson.

    "A great start to a great series!"
    What did you love best about Moon Called?

    I really loved the characters, particularly the lead character Mercy Thompson, the coyote shape changer. She's a rare example of how to write a great female protagonist without her falling into Mary Sue territory *cough Force Awakens*. She's very relatable and strong, but she's not perfect by any means. She doesn't make any of the other characters look like fools. She's just a very fun character I really got behind. The rest of the characters I also enjoyed like Adam, Zee and Warren to name a few. Each character feels alive and fun, but they all feel strong.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Moon Called?

    There were plenty of great moments, but the moment that stuck to me was when Mercy, Samuel, and Stefan had to deal with the vampire Marsilla. Who needs a cross when all you need is a necklace of a lamb?


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the scene when Mercy and Samuel had to break up a crazy dominance fight at Warren's house. It's a nice scene that shows us how werewolf politics plays out.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I can't think of one. But damn this needs to be live action.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this series because I wanted a different read. I'd never read anything Urban fantasy before. I'm glad I tried this series. It went totally against my expectations in a great way. It's always great to try new things.

    "Be Prepared to Fall in Love with Mercy"
    Where does Moon Called rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is the beginning of one my favorite series. This is the book that got me hooked!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Moon Called?

    I think the best part of this book is it introduces you to Mercy. She is a strong bada** female character. She is independent but not infallible. The romantic tension in this book is nice to, although not the main plot if that's what you're looking for.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    My first time listening to Lorelei King was this book, but I have since listened to the entire series up to what is currently released and I can't imagine anyone else being the voice of Mercy.


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

    Absolutely! It's an amazing book with an awesome narrator!


    Any additional comments?

    Don't get this book confused with Twilight. Yes, there are vampires and werewolves but Mercy is always part of the action. I wouldn't consider reading Twilight EVER, but I LOVE this series. Romance plays a part in this series but it never overpowers Mercy's sense of independence and appetite for adventure.
