Hands down one of my favorite series. Mercy Thompson is a better developed heroine than most, with rough edges, and hidden strengths and insecurities. It's not all about the requisite human/vampire/werewolf love triangle that dominates most urban fantasy. Hallelujah!

The first installment of the Mercy Thompson series, a decent read. Not great but not bad either. I an pulled in enough to want to pursue some more of the series eventully but it's not that strong of a pull.

I'm on the fence on this one. On the one hand, I really like the main character, Mercy Thompson. She is kind, compassionate, dedicated, smart and more importantly than some other characters I could mention in other series *cough Dresden cough* she actually knows when NOT to taunt the all-powerful vampire. Patricia Briggs accomplishes the fundamental goal of all writers- I wanted to turn the page to see what would happen next. I was invested in the characters. The stakes seemed real, and I even found myself caring about some of the tertiary characters and interested in their backstory. But, the story is a little forgettable. So of the story points (all female werewolves hate me because I can have children and they can't!) were tired and obnoxious. It wasn't so bad that I lost interest, and I am excited to read the book, but it did grate me the wrong way from time to time. Read it, and make your own decision- content warning for sexual assualt, death, and kidnapping.
