Always something new and interesting

Patricia Briggs had created a series that has so many dimensions to explore it allows her to introduce new, interesting characters rich with back stories you want to know more about. Ms. King is one of voice acting's consistent talents who never disappoints.

Phenomenal series!

I can't get enough of the characters in this series, Patricia Briggs has quickly become my favorite author. I always look forward to a new mercy story and i hope the series goes on forever! The narrator was fantastic as usual, she really gives mercy life and makes her seem so real. The story was fast paced, the writing was on point and flowed so easily. I love that the author writes in a away that you could join the series at any point and you would still be able to know what's going on.

Not as good as others

I must admit, I have enjoyed the whole Mercy Thompson series, as well as Alpha and Omega.

When this book came out I bought it but the story seems a little weak and there was a lot more conversation by Mercy and a lot less humor. I was a little disappointed. Having said that I listen to it all the way to the end and will look forward to the next book… I think we have new characters to look forward to.

There are no words to express how much I loved this book!

I have adored every Mercy book, but this one was the best one yet. It was absolutely fantastic. Patricia Briggs is an amazingly talented author. You really can't go wrong with a Patricia Briggs book.
The narrator, Lorelei King is one of the best narrators I have ever listened to. She preformed this book so beautifully. She can do the snarky, sexy, funny, touching, and gut wrenching roles this book calls for incredibly well. Plus she does a sexy male voice that is like chocolate melting on the tip of your tongue! This is an incredible blend of amazing author and narrator that makes the audiobook version so...well there are no words.
Happy listening!

The weakest from the series

Its not bad but also not too good. I never felt that the story really took off. It felt like the whole book was made from the introduction and then the end. No middle , no main story. It's too bad because I really waited for this book.

not my favorite but still good

Normally I can't wait for the next but it felt like this one kept waiting to get started. Still wonderful and an amazing narrator but it didn't grab me like most in the series.

Another Awesome Mercy adventure!!

This was another awesome addition to the Mercy Thompson series! I can never get tired of these stories, they are full of action, suspense, magic, and lots of "pack politics." I love how Adam and Mercy work together as a team, they are the perfect Alpha leaders. We are introduced to new and interesting characters.

As usual, The Gray Lords are up to their games, and Mercy and the pack find themselves in the middle of the Fae conflict, but they will not back down. They have declared to protect their territory and the boy who escaped from the Fae.

If you are a Mercy Thompson Fan, you will definitely want to add this story to your collection.

This story was well worth the credit, and the time spent listening to the story.

Huge dissapointment

I have loved every single book from mercy Thompson Series and I am just wondering what happen with this one. The entire book could be summarized in just a few chapters. Boring, boring and boring. You are expecting after few chapters that story might pick up and get little bit more interesting but never did. I just could not go past few chapters.

Old and stale

I really enjoyed all of the previous books in this series, however this jaws just too much like all the others. I found it boring. I'll get the next book. Hopefully it will be better.

Not As Good As Previous Books

Would you try another book from Patricia Briggs and/or Lorelei King?

Yes

If you’ve listened to books by Patricia Briggs before, how does this one compare?

There was a lot of filler and not much going on. We had a bunch of communication till the end and then it fiizzled out

What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

Always good

Did Fire Touched inspire you to do anything?

No

Any additional comments?

Hate to say it, and give it 3 stars, but I didn't enjoy this one as much as the last book. There seemed to be so much filler and not much going on in way of story. It started off with bang and then fizzled into a bunch of back and forth communications, add reminiscing, plenty of ruminating (I usually don't mind Mercy's, as much as some other series characters) to a disappointingly, dull end.
Oh well, I won't give up on Mercy, I'll just take another break

She is losing me

I have enjoyed all the Mercy Thompson books as nice way to survive my commute. But the constant descriptions of how werewolves function is tiring. This is book nine, we don't need to hear all about dominance on every third page. We get it. And we get how Adam in mine... and all that. Needs more story and less of a description of everyone's thought process.
