One of my favorites

Would you consider the audio edition of Moon Called to be better than the print version?

No, maybe I'm just old fashioned, but there is nothing like reading a Patricia Briggs book for the first time.

What did you like best about this story?

How much time do you have? Briggs does a great job at character development (as you will see later in the series) she brings a fresh look to an old idea (werewolf, fae, vampires) the story grabbed my attention from the first chapter until the most recent book.

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

Sure, but not really necessary since I've read the book about 20 times already

It was the best audio book I have ever listened two! The narrator inflected different character voices, which was really amaz
ing because of the variety of characters presented in the novel.

Good book

Good characters and plot movement until last10% of the book at which point the action got a bit muddy. A lot better than some , and the reader was great. Will try another book in the series or by the author.

I love this book

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

Probably my favorite fantasy story, Mercy is a strong female character. The Wolf Dominance issues are fun to explore.

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

Lorelei King was wonderful. She brought the story to life,

It's okay.

Any additional comments?

The plot was interesting enough to keep me reading, World building was not very good. Characters were good enough to not complain. Plot was good enough to keep me interested and had a twist that didn't allow me to know how the whole book would play out. Overall it s alright.

Love This Series!

I love the first book of the Mercy Thompson Series...I listen to it over and over again. Mercy's introduction is fascinating from page one and Patricia Briggs introduces who she is and what her world is about in a way that you are always thirsty for more. As you continue to read the books in the series Mercy's world gets bigger and more interesting and your journey with the characters progressively becomes more insightful.
In this first book you are introduced to Mercy who is a mechanic and a shape shifter. You are also introduced to her world of the paranormal which I must say I love. Patricia Brigg's paranormal world is very inventive and imaginative. Spoiler: The Fae had to "come out" because a garden sprite was accused of murder and he couldn't have done it because he cannot hold iron without getting severely burned...the rest of the paranormal world are still thinking about coming out.
A young troubled boy asks Mercy for work which leads you into a story that has murder, attempted murder, abduction, magic, mystery, and mayhem all the while filling in some really interesting in depth back stories...Give it a listen...you will not be sorry. Oh and Ms. King is wonderful to listen to.
