First book I've read by Patricia Briggs and I like it a lot. I'm going to look for more books in the series. I like the world building, the characters are interesting, particularly the heroine, and the book really moves along. I'm not into werewolves books but for her books, I will make an exception. ( )

I have never read an urban fantasy other than Anne Rice, and so I have limited resources to judge this book on. So I'm not really sure what else this genre has to offer. This book was highly recommended for this genre, so that's why I picked it.
The story felt extremely rushed. There wasn't really any exposition or character development in the beginning so I didn't really care all that much about any of the main characters. I like there to be a little build up so you get invested in them.
All in all it was a fast read and entertaining. But not amazing. ( )

very likable main character - good support characters - good mythos building - good world building - decent technical scope - overall would read more by author ( )

After twists and turns and scratching of the head Moon Called ended up a pretty satisfying read. First of all, I really like Mercy. As a coyote shifter raised by werewolves she's had a difficult life and always felt like an outsider but it hasn't left her angry, bitter and broken. She's a smart capable heroine that's easy to root for. Mercy stands up for herself amongst the multitude of dominant males surrounding her and manages to do it without coming across and bossy and annoying. She's tough and can hold her own yet knows when to get the hell outta dodge.

One of the problems I had with Moon Called was that the numerous twists and turns in the plot weren't really necessary. First it's one guy who's the big bad, then another, then it's really this other guy that's calling the shots. The first book in a series has so much to put out there that I'm ok with the plot being a little obvious and ordinary. I'd rather get to know the characters and find out what makes them tick. Briggs gave us an excellent look at werewolf politics and structure. I just wish I'd connected with Adam, Sam and even Mercy more. Maybe then when Adam's making out with Mercy on her front porch it would've made more sense. As it was I was left wondering when did she start liking him like that?

Briggs created an intriguing enough world for me to continue on and hopefully discover more of what makes Mercy tick. It promises to be a fun ride! ( )

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.
