Mercy Thompson makes being a coyote cool. She's brave, smart, and snarky and I can't seem to get enough of her. Still caught between two patient alpha men (maybe three?!) Mercy has many people to answer to. Yet when bad guy hits town and thrashes her, she wants to kill him herself because he is evil. The wolves and vamps agree they don't want her to get hurt but sometimes to get things done right you must do it yourself. Not that the others didn't try hard enough, they just weren't Mercy and her special walker status.

I hate what happens to Warren but I agree that not much less would have convinced Karl how much he loves him. What happens to Darryl made me laugh and cringe at the same time. The fae bar makes me cringe but I like Uncle Mike. He seems like a good guy, really want to learn more of his story. Ben, I feel sorry for but knowing his resilience I hope he regains himself. It'll be hard but worth it, I think.

Overall I thought this was a nice addition and I enjoyed it but felt something was missing but I'm not sure what it was to be truthful. Hopefully that missing element will be found in the next installment of Mercy Thompson's life. ( )

I love Mercy - she's such a believable heroine. She's just the right amount stubborn, she's not too dependent or lovestruck, and she's not ridiculously overpowered. I'll be reading book three as soon as I get a copy :) ( )

This was an exciting book that took off fast and sucked me right into the adventure...pardon the pun. As always, the writing was clean and consistent, the characters unique and well developed. I was on the edge of my seat and the suspense was written so well I had goosebumps. The plot was well thought out and while complex, it was communicated in a way that was simple to follow. I loved it!

Mercy is still struggling with "what" she is and what powers she has when a situation with the vampires forces her into the line of fire. She develops uneasy alliances and discovers new aspects to her relationship with Adam and his pack. We also learn more about Stefen's character and the long term goals of the vampire seethe. A big aspect of this book draws the clear line between good and evil in Mercy's magical world.

We also get a glimpse of a few new players. I like that we get to see a vulnerable side of Sam and I enjoyed the touching scenes shared with Mercy. I worried for him and realized I like him more than I thought. Adam still intrigues me as well and I'm curious how Mercy will handle her suitors. I'm eager to see where the next book leads! ( )

More vampires and werewolves. The story was engaging and the characters well-drawn. ( )

The sequel to [book: Moon Called] once again follows shapeshifter and car mechanic Mercy Thompson. A demon-possessed vampire is causing tempers to flare and people to die, and Mercy's friend Stefan is the first line of defense. When he goes missing (along with several of Mercy's favorite werewolves), Mercy decides to track down and kill the demon ridden vampire, who is faster, stronger, and has far more magic than she does. Unfortunately for him, she has a lot of friends.

The central plot is good, but what really makes this book worth reading is the well-developed world. Mercy has friends, a cat, work troubles...she's a well-rounded character living in a detailed society, and if it's not the most sophisticated thing I've ever read, it's not completely mind-candy. ( )

Book description
Under the rule of science, there are no witch burnings allowed, no water trials or public lynchings. In return, the average law-abiding, solid citizen has little to worry about from the things that go bump in the night. Sometimes I wish I was an average citizen...

Mechnic Mercy Thompson has friends in low places - and in dark ones. And now she owes one of them a favour. Since she can shapeshift at will, she agrees to act as some extra muscle when her vampire friend Stefan goes to deliver a message to another of his kind.

But this new vampire is hardly ordinary - and neither is the demon inside of him...
