Publisher's Summary

Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She's never known any others of her kind. Until now.

An evil is stirring in the depths of the Columbia River - one that her father's people may know something about. And to have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need their help....

Have Mercy! Listen to another Mercy Thompson chiller.

    "Have Mercy!"
    Would you listen to River Marked again? Why?

    Yes I would, as it is already my second or third..or is it fourth time I have indulged. I love the Mercy Thompson Series. I have all of the books in ebook format and now I have all of them in audio format. It's like good music, it can never get too old. I will listen to them over and over again until my digital copy gives up the ghost.


    What other book might you compare River Marked to and why?

    I would compare the Mercy Thompson series to the Chronicles of Elantra series by Michelle Sagara. Why do you ask? Because they both have strong female lead characters, who are just aaaa.....Whole Lot unconventional. They go into situations and whadayuno....VICTORY! (I'm doin the snoopy dance). I just love it.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    Lorelei King is one of the best narrator's out there. She can do male voices, female voices, children voices, probably even pet voices. She Rocks!


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

    Werewolves and Faiery's and Vampires..OH MY!! Demons and Ghosts and Sorcerers...OH MY!! Witches and Warlocks and Walkers...OH MY!! ....Wait...What's a Walker? Mercedes Thompson that's who.

    More Mercy!

    3,495 hours listened in 2012! I used to be a voracious reader, then my job had me driving about 1k miles a week. I started listening to Audible and have never stopped. I quit work and now just listen all the time, cleaning house, shopping, driving, in the hot tub. I even put one earbud in and let Audible read me to sleep every night.

    "GIVE ME MORE"
    Would you listen to River Marked again? Why?

    listened to this one twice, I had to go back and confirm a few context clues that hint at what might be coming up in the next book...can't wait.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of River Marked?

    I was seriously concerned for our girl on the banks of that river! I mean she really gets herself in some spots. Also, what's up with the daddy vision? That's all I'm gonna say, no spoilers from me!


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

    Love Lorelei King, she does male voices as well as female, and she gets that frustrated Werewolf voice just right, you can really tell Mercy can irritate even the most patient man. LOL


    Any additional comments?

    When is the next one coming out? Make sure you read the Alpha and Omega series too.

    "Patricia Briggs is a remarkable person!"
    If you could sum up River Marked in three words, what would they be?

    Enjoyable for life!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I am torn between Mercy and Adam. If I have to choose, I would pick Mercy. She is the person I would want to be!


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

    Mercy


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

    It made me cry and laugh and at times, it even made me mad.


    Any additional comments?

    I can read this story over and over!

    "Wow"
    Would you listen to River Marked again? Why?

    I would listen to this book many more times. Not only was it well written and entertaining but the narrator did a great job.


    What other book might you compare River Marked to and why?

    Can't really compare this book to just one. There were things from different books but the way that Patricia Briggs wrote this is also different than anything else.


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

    Lorelei King brings character or spunk to the characters. I find that enjoy her individual characters but then there are characters that are brought to new life. her voice is captivating.


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

    Two unique newly weds get more than they bargained for on their honeymoon.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to the next book. I loved the work done on all these books.

    "Left me confused."

    I was really enjoying the whole series, read it all in a weeks time. I was so happy to get to the last book to see how it would all end to find myself asking 'Who wrote this one?" I guess I was expecting more with Mercy and the pack them working out their difference, but she jumped to tie up a loose end with Mercy and her Dad. I did not think this was a loose end due to the fact the guy was suppose to of been dead this whole time. All the riddles he speaks in and some of the other's left me confused as to what was going on and who was who. Never did manage to quit understand If that man was her Dad or not. Then we end the book with Mercy's letter to Adam....Didn't she live? So why are we ending the book with the letter?
    I felt jilted since we never got to see them settle all the differences and never really got to see the romance between the H/H. Now I ask, was this really the last book in the series??? I hope not, too many things were left undone.

    "Slower pace ... I still liked it"

    I think the author was somewhat less inspired when writing this book - but that resulted in a more leisurely pace that I still enjoyed. There was more character development and background and less raw plot. I especially enjoyed that she branched out into Native American magic.

    With previous books in the series I hated having to pause the playback when I got to work (I listen to and from work). With this book it was much easier to pause ... but I still liked the book a lot.

    My only complaint is that that the author must have read earlier reviews about her stories being a little to PG (hard to believe with vampires running around, but true). At the end of the last book, and throughout this book, she tried to venture into an R rating ... but you could tell she was uncomfortable with it. I would have preferred continued discretion to the awkward introduction of more sex.

    "Mercy kicks butt again!"

    My favorite of Brggs' work, this series is great. With a steely heroine and the best of the storyline. I love the narration and the stories Briggs creates.

    "H. E. A. for Mercy!"

    This book was wonderful to read for those of us who have been rooting for Mercy to have a Happy Ever After. So glad she finally CHOSE someone, and it was an entertaining end to the series. Though it would be nice if it continued, as I love the narrator, and there are so many other aspects of this world that can be explored. Great conclusion to the question of "who will she end up with?".
