Series: Mercy Thompson #1
Why I read this book?: I’ve had this book sitting on my bookcase waiting to be read FOREVER! I finally got around to it and I completely DEVOURED it.
What I liked?: Mercy herself is now an addition to my “favorite heroine” list. She’s a walker, who shifts into a coyote. She was raised for the most part by a werewolf pack from Montana which explains why she knows so much about werewolves. I also LOVED Adam, he’s the Alpha who has a “thing” for Mercy and routinely threatens to eat her cat. Then craziness runs rampant and bad things happen to good people/werewolves. I also loved the host of secondary characters that made this book chock full of AWESOME! My personal favorite was Warren, you’ll have to check out this book to learn more about Warren. Even with all the high pressure situations that all the characters kept finding themselves in there was plenty of humor. I was very pleasantly surprised at how fast paced this book was. I really didn’t want to put it down at all. It sucks when real life gets in the way of my reading!
What I disliked?: I got nothing!
Overall Impression: I am kicking myself that I have waited as long as I have to read this series! It is full of AWESOME!
“A werewolf tossed me against a giant packing crate while I was trying to rescue a frightened young girl who’d been kidnapped by an evil witch and a drug lord.”
“MS. THOMPSON, it said in heavy block letters, PLEASE KEEP YOUR FELINE OFF MY PROPERTY. IF I SEE IT AGAIN, I WILL EAT IT.”
“I don’t like it when I outweigh my men.”
