This was an enjoyable book. Light read, plenty of supernatural characters. It reads very similarly to books by Kelley Armstrong and Charlaine Harris. If you enjoy those, you will enjoy this. Definitely picking up the next book in the series. ( )

I’m such a sucker for urban fantasy especially when it comes to werewolves and thoroughly enjoyed the set up of this world. My main complaint is the pacing. Some scenes seemed to be skimmed over too quickly or were bogged down by too much exposition or over explaining. And I will admit that there were moments where the over controlling men were a bit annoying but having Mercy put them in their place was satisfying. Otherwise it was a rather enjoyable book with many likable characters (I really hope we see more of the vampire Stefan with his Mystery Machine van in the later books). ( )

My favorite paranormal series. I recommend it to all my paranormal customers at the bookstore. ( )

There are a lot of werewolf books out there so I felt a little trepidation to pick one up (same can be said of vampire stories, eh?) but the stars were good. From start to finish, I didn't want to put the book down. The reviews on the cover did not lie.

I felt Mercy was a believable character and I liked how the different wolf packs interacted. Definitely a good read. ( )

No library descriptions found.

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.
