Be ready to be drawn in :)

I have listened to, and enjoyed all in this universe. (Don't forget to check out the sister series, the novella that starts it is in the anthology of short stories and outtakes, dont waste the credit if you font have it to spare on the separate novella, it starts during this and explains what happens in Chicago).

This is not smut or erotic romance, it's not cliff hangy though the universe does build and leave lots of room for more. I haven't noticed any real inconsistencies or plot holes. There is religion but I didn't find it too much, just the fmc stating her own beliefs for the most part. The cursing is mild and limited. Not that I have a problem with most of the above.

So far, May 2019, this series has been consistent story wise, allowed for character growth, across not just 1 series but 2.

Great book, great reader!

This whole series is amazing, and the reader does a great job, she changes her voices for all the characters and really helps you get into it.

Predictable and good

Not as sexy as the cover would lead you to believe but a good listen. Things were a bit predictable so even if you multi task while listening you will be able to keep up with the story. The voice actor did a really good job as well keeping character voices separate.

My Bestie Was Right...

She has been hounding me to read this series for the last two years and since I don't read quickly, I couldn't commit to it. But when I realized it was on audiobook, I had no more excuses. My bestie said I'd enjoy this series and she was right! The story is interesting as well as the world building, and the characters made me laugh out loud more than once. I look forward to continuing this endearing urban fantasy.

Also, the narrator's ability to navigate between a decent German accent and a Slavic accent in the same conversation is enough to give her mad props.

the music at the end ruined the last bit.

it was a well written and well read book. it had character growth and decent plots. I would have given a better rating if the music during the last little bit of the book hadn't overshadowed the end and been altogether annoying.

Cute book, the reader has great range voice wise

I like this book, it is cute and has some adorable moments with all the characters. It moves a bit fast at certain points and you can get a bit lost if you aren't paying attention. But it is a really good story and I like all the characters. The love square that I sense coming on is pretty cute too. I know who i'm rooting for though. You have to read it is a nice book to listen too as you work. The reader made it easy to tell who was speaking and she has a great range for both male and female characters. Love it.

Great Series, Great Narration

This is a great series. I own the ebooks and have read them all. The narrator of this audio book is very good; great inflection, uses different voices for all characters and consistently follows through with them. Not all narrators do this and it makes a huge difference! The audio book really brings out the humor and gives great visual imagery as well. Narrators can make or break a series (e.g., Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward - fantastic series, but the audiobooks sound like they are being read by a sports announcer and just ruin it). Some other good paranormal series that also have audiobooks with good narrators are the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlene Harris and the Rachel Morgan Series by Kim Harrison. Enjoy!

A top notch Urban Fantasy heroine!

Mercy is not your typical female heroine. First off, she never intended to be a heroine. She is more interested in keeping her Volkswagen repair shop running, paying her bills, and living a quiet life in her 70's model trailer with her Manx cat. Oh, yea, and tormenting the werewolf in her back yard. The Alpha werewolf. Uh huh. Well, she WAS raised by werewolves herself, by the Maraq, in fact, the leader of all the werewolves in the US. A pretty good feat for a woman who shifts into a coyote.

What develops is one of the more well developed series in UF. When Mercedes, or Mercy as she is called (yep. A Volkswagen mechanic named Mercedes) takes in a new, young, isolated werewolf, her life takes a new, and dangerous turn, leading her back into a life she thought she had left far behind.

Next to Kate Daniels (Ilona Andrews 'Kate Daniels' series) Mercy is one of the best realized female UF lead characters on the market today. She doesn't whine, cry, piss, moan, or otherwise turn into a whiny little boy-toy. As time goes along, you can see a romance coming on, but like Kate, Mercy's story is about the story, not about the smex. Thank goodness..... I like a good love scene as well as anyone else, but I am MUCH more interested in the story. There are none of the "seedy, ridiculous sexual encounters" (thanks to Leslie Sims of Denver for that little snippet) that are so common in other supposedly UF stories (read "the label says UF, and there are a few weird characters in there, but it is mostly about the sexual encounters).

I have read the whole series multiple times (there is nothing like reading a strong female character when you are feeling low!) and I am really looking forward to "Frost Burned" due out in 2013.

Read them all, read them in order. You WON'T be sorry!

I love this series..

Mercy Thompson is a strong female character with a good moral code that she lives by. The story is interesting, the plots and action a plenty while keeping the main character real. She still needs to work to pay her rent; she deals with everyday issues, while also dealing with werewolves and vampires. Its a good mixture of reality and fiction and I cant' wait to read the next book in the series. I thought Lorelei King was perfect for the voice of Mercy, and she did a great job of giving the male characters different voices as well. I hope Lorelei King continues on as Mercy's voice in the other audio books, as I will be sure to buy them.

Great Story, Lots of Action, Not much romance

I tend to read the reviews from my fellow audible listener, so I thought I try and return the favor.

I really liked this book. The main charater is very likeable. This is a hint of romance, but no action to speak of. And there is really no swearing. Hard to believe that you can actually have a great story with out it!!!!!

The narrator is great also.

Was this book worth my time and my money? YES!

Liked not Loved

I am a big fan of this genre (read: Dresden Files, Iron Druid Chronicles). Unfortunately, this one didn't move me to the same degree. I certainly don't regret the credit I spent on it and there was no part where the story bogged down and became a slog. I'm just not totally convinced to drop more credits on the rest of the series.

I like the world Briggs has created with elements of the square community (vanilla humans) beginning to confront the arcane community (werewolves, vampires, the fae) openly. The idea of some fae already being revealed to the world but many still maintaining their secret is a good setup.

Mercy herself, with her modest known abilities and the hints about much greater abilities, is similarly well set up to be a source of magical and human conflict.

The supporting cast of characters is well developed without forcing it. This is particularly well done because Briggs is working against a tendency to make all beings of a sort, like werewolves, have similar personalities. While hers have similar traits, they are very distinct.

Also there is plenty of action, preternatural and otherwise.

My major problem with the book is that Mercy lacks agency within the plot. There are some moments in the story when her actions are pivotal to the scene, but you get the feeling that the outcome didn't result because of any of Mercy's major decisions, actions or insights. Sure, she figures out the mystery one half second before everyone else, but it is at the point where it is already moot. Mercy doesn't drive the story; the story pulls her along. That's fine in the beginning of a story, but as it progresses, you want to see your protagonist take control.

King's telling of the story is good. She does a husky man voice passing fair; I liked her take on foreign accents. One issue I would take is that Mercy is supposed to be early 30s and I feel like King has her dialed in at about mid 40s. But generally, a sound reading.

A Favorite!

This is a book/series that I have loved for quite a while. It's probably one of my very favorite! I was thrilled when it finally came out in audio. The reader is fantastic! Now I just hope that books 2 & 3 are released on audio soon!

As a side note, please don't judge the book by the cover. It is an edgy urban fantasy, but not a romance.

Hooked me at the start

Patricia Briggs's Mercy Thompson series and related books are a definite must for those who enjoy complex, compassionate, smart, strong female characters with a great sense of sarcasm. She values people/beings for who they are and not what they are quite to the dismay of others.

I have listened the entire series & related books several times and continue to discover things about the series and how well Briggs has thought out the world and characters.

How amazing

I read the book and enjoyed it. And to me, the narrator makes the story even better, as she adds a certain nuance of humor, life (dare I say humanity?) to what could have been a interpreted in a very dark and dour way. Feel safe putting yourself in the hands of this author, who knows her way around telling a story, and this narrator, who does the telling justice.

A new favorite

I finished listening to Moon Called and immediately bought the whole series in print and read them in a week. I then bought the audio of the 5th book of the series. To me the 1st and 5th were the best, but the whole series is extremely well done. Original and witty. Love that the female character is gutsy and independant. Romance is well integrated but definately not the focal. Could listen to this at work with out being worried about what others would over hear. Wasnt crazy about the voice of the male lead in Moon Called but for the record, by the last book this narrator was in her stride and every voice was perfectly suited to the characters. Other great thing about these as audio is that they are not that long but long enough. Best book this year that i have downloaded.

Great characters, mediocre story

I suspect that this whole book is a setup for the series as a whole. It had a lot of character introduction and development, but the story was forgettable. I really don't remember anything that happened; I really wasn't engaged by it at all.

But man, I really loved the characters, and the narrator was fantastic. I'm not inspired to immediately get the next book, but I know I will in time!
