    "This series has a magnetic pull!"

    I am not normally a fantasy person and I can't recall how I even picked the first book of the series up, but it grabbed me right away and held tight. I have even eschewed series I am well established in to continue reading this one. I wonder if Patricia Briggs can put the draw of a vampire's sway into these stories? The writing is obviously good in order to create the allure it does but the story is... different. It is clean and straightforward "in the moment" as it were but has many subtexts and side issues going in within the narrative. It is funny and the characters are very real and three dimensional. Lorelei King does her usual fantastic job. Give Mercy Thompson a try. I doubt you will regret it!

    "Love the book and the performance"

    I have all the Mercy Thompson books on Audible and almost enjoy listening to them more than reading them. One of my favorite authors. Great start to the series.

    "Awesome book awesome performance"

    Lorelei King is an amazing performer in this amazing book. If you like urban fantasy that isn't too pretentious with just a hint of romance and some realistic action this book is for you.

    What do you even say about yourself on an audio book site? I like books? I don't have time to read anymore so I listen?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! The Narrator does an amazing job! But I would have the selling point of saying I listened to all the books currently in the series (8) in a row.


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

    I'm coming back to do reviews after listening all 8 books and it's hard to recall who would have been my favorite during the first book. I think I really liked Sam at this point in time but would probably change my answer to Stephen maybe. It's hard to say after how much they all change over the series.


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

    Yes, did 8 books of the series in about a months time. I'm sure I did a few in close to one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is too good to just read the first one. Be ready to get a series that you want to absorb all of as quickly as possible.

    What disappointed you about Moon Called?

    Hmmm... There was very little action, very little comedy, very little suspense, and very little creativity. The story lacked everything that would make a story interesting. I mean the only suspense was created by me as I hoped each new chapter would be different from the last. Maybe I was just spoiled, after listening to the Grave Series, by Jeaniene Frost. A series that made this book seem like an after school special. This was just badddddd.... The only reason I didn't return the book was so that it would remind me of who not to get in the future...


    What was most disappointing about Patricia Briggs’s story?

    uninspired...


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was the best part of the story...


    What character would you cut from Moon Called?

    Patricia Briggs...

    "Pretty good story"

    This story was better than I expected it to be, this book reminded me of the author Rachel Vincent who also wrote stories on wolves.

    "well done."
    Where does Moon Called rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to several audiobooks from Audible and of the ones that I have listened to I would say this book is a good solid four and a half out of five I was impressed because not many writers can write a series that has some of the same characters is another serious they have already produced and do it well. I was in pressed.


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

    "Mercy what have you done to my French roast?"
    Lol


    What three words best describe Lorelei King’s performance?

    Better then most.


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

    unexpected power.


    Any additional comments?

    I did very much enjoy this book overall I would give it a solid 4 it would have been nice to see someone doing the reading to put a little bit more emotion and difference in the characters voices but as I said is very good book and the performance by the narrator was a solid 4 out of 5 and today.

    "Good narrating, bad story. DNF."
    What did you like best about Moon Called? What did you like least?

    I thought the narrator did a great job telling the story. She used some impressive voices throughout, and can easily act both male and female characters. What I didn't like was that the story was full of what I'll call convenient facts. For instance, in this universe the werewolves don't change until their second full moon... Except in one case where it was convenient that the character DID change at the first full moon. Then it was because if a werewolf is mad enough, they will change at the first full moon. The book is littered with these convenient facts. I unfortunately did not finish the story because it really was dragging on with uninteresting plot points. I kept thinking "Why is the main character even significant in this scene? Why do all of these coincidences seem to keep occurring?" And eventually with just under 2 hours left to go in the book I decided to call it quits.


    Has Moon Called turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'm not turned off from other books in this genre.


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

    I haven't listened to any other performances by Lorelei King.


    Could you see Moon Called being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I kept thinking of the movie Underworld while reading this. It seems very similar, and could probably appeal to a decent number of people.
