Mercedes Thompson is a walker, a descendant of Native Americans and has the ability to turn into a coyote and detect magic and block it. She gets drawn into a fight with werewolves because of her neighbor. Turns out she helps out a lot and practically saves the day, and only sustains mild injuries.

This book was so much like the first couple of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake books, it has the same tone and sort of the same concept, but different...lets just hope she doesn't turn the series into nothing more than completely gratuitous sex scenes in book form. I liked the tension between Mercy and the local werewolf alpha, Adam. I like the whole idea of the story but it felt a bit like something was missing as well, although, I can't quite place what. Mercy is a strong female lead and I liked that as well. We will see what the rest of the series has in store. ( )

Mercy is a mechanic and a “walker” - a coyote shapeshifter. She was raised by werewolves. When a fairly new, packless werewolf (Mac) shows up looking for a job, she helps him out. When she learns more about him, she introduces him to the local Alpha pack leader, Adam, so hopefully Mac can learn more about being a werewolf and can learn to control himself. Unfortunately, things take a turn for the worse...

I liked it, but I'm not sure it was enough to convince me to pick up the 2nd book in the series. There was a lot of politics in the book, as well – werewolves, vampires, witches, fae and Mercy and how does she fit in (or not). I've already had a comment that the rest of the series is better, so I will give book 2 a chance and see what I think from there. ( )

An awesome series that I give an enthusiastic two thumbs up!!! Not only a great concept but also well written which isn't always the case with the genre. ( )

My reaction to this book is probably conditioned by being a little jaded at this point in regards to urban fantasy as an analogy for the coming out of subcultures that had previously been granted pariah status at best, though Briggs gets points for beginning this story early in the process. Tolerance for those magical beings who have come out in Briggs' universe can be best described as tokenism. Still, while Briggs seems to have been shooting for a matter-of-fact, work-a-day tone I'm not sure that she didn't fall a bit flat. My overall impression is that I'd try the next book in the series, but there are other authors I'd rather read right now. ( )

fell flat

i was talking to a friend about it and i gave an example..

some scenes go like this.. i put the key in the door, i turn the key, i open the door, i get in the car, i close the door, i put on my seat belt, i put the key in the ignition...

while others go like this..

hey, will you go get me some donuts from the bakery 10 miles away?
wow, those donuts were great!

I was intrigued by the mystery at first but it did not follow through at all. I did not see the chemistry that was supposedly present between Mercy and the two gents. I became very frustrated with being repeatedly told that she's not a member of the pack. ( )

Book description
Werewolves can be dangerous if you get in their way, but they'll leave you alone if you are careful. They are very good at hiding their natures from the human population, but I'm not human. I know them when I meet them, and they know me too.

Mercy Thompson's sexy next-door neighbour is a werewolf.

She's tinkering with a VW bus at her mechanic shop that happens to belong to a vampire.

But then, Mercy Thompson is not exactly normal herself...and her connection to the world of things that go bump in the night is about to get her into a whole lot of trouble.
