Read and loved in high school! ( )

Sequel to Moon Called. I'm really liking this series. It reminds of the Laurell Hamilton books before they were slim patches of dialog and plot in between long stretches of sex scenes and rationalizations about kinks and open relationships. ( )

So good. It's rare that I enjoy adult urban fantasy this much, but I really do love it. For one thing, it's just a nice break from reality and all of the "serious" literature I've been reading recently for school and stuff.

I really like Mercy because she's not really a typical heroine. She's a mechanic and she turns into a coyote. Yes, she has a lot of love interests, but I have never been more please to say that she has absolutely zero sex with anyone in this book. There are some kisses exchanged, which made me a little disappointed, but still. The book really focuses on the plot rather than her love life, which I appreciate.

Now, the plot. Very creepy stuff. Very nice plot twists. Very painful deaths. I got genuinely creeped out several times.

Also, I think Mercy should ditch all her suitors and team up with Ben. I love that guy.

And the ending is awesome. Love it. ( )

I felt the taste of Laurell K. Hamilton in this book as well, except better than her Anita series since there have still be no sex scenes, so much to the point that its about dang time that she gets to it, but, the first two Anita Blake books were sexless as well, we will see what the next one holds. I still really like the characters of this series, I can feel the personalities of each on the pages, and I love how Mercy remains to be a strong independent women, who knows how to kick ass and use her guns, even if she is just a coyote.

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...
