|Read E-pub ß Moon Called ô Mercedes Thompson, aka Mercy, is a talented Volkswagen mechanic living in the Tri Cities area of Washington She also happens to be a walker, a magical being with the power to shift into a coyote at will Mercy s next door neighbor is a werewolf Her former boss is a gremlin And she s fixing a bus for a vampire This is the world of Mercy Thompson, one that looks a lot like ours but is populated by those things that go bump in the night And Mercy s connection to those things is about to get her into some serious hot water Buddy Read or re read, in my case with Kat, Krishna, Sara, and Sesana Disclaimer I may have bullied them into reading thisAll of these guys gave it a gentle 3 stars Even Sesana view spoiler ,who probably would have rated it lower, had I not threatened to go after her beloved Les Mis rables, hide spoiler was kind Thank you So, with none of my pals really loving this one, coupled with the fact that I read it 5 years ago, I was fully prepared to change my rating from the original 4 s Buddy Read or re read, in my case with Kat, Krishna, Sara, and Sesana Disclaimer I may have bullied them into reading thisAll of these guys gave it a gentle 3 stars Even Sesana view spoiler ,who probably would have rated it lower, had I not threatened to go after her beloved Les Mis rables, hide spoiler was kind Thank you So, with none of my pals really loving this one, coupled with the fact that I read it 5 years ago, I was fully prepared to change my rating from the original 4 stars I did tend to rate things a bit on the high side back in the dayBut I still loved it Maybe part of the reason is nostalgia Maybe it s because I ve continued with the series over the years, and the characters have changed and grown, so it s nice to take another peek back at where it all started Or maybe it s just my kind of book, and I still love itshrugs Who knows I had totally forgotten everything that happened in this story, though Thanks to my poor memory, it was like I was reading a brand new book Bonus Here are the 2 main things I like about Mercy 1 She s not all powerful In fact, most of the time, she s the weakest person in the room So going up against werewolves, vampires, or fae isn t something that she is expected to do The strong must protect the weakand all that.She does it because she cares about people, and it s the right thing to do.Which makes her really brave, in my book.2 She knows when to back down from a fight.I can t tell you how annoyed I get with some of the heroes or heroines in books The ones who don t have the good sense God gave them to know when to shut up, stand down, and eat a little humble pie Must Prove I m A Badass It s a lot harder to back down when you re angry than it is to mouth off.However, sometimes it s the better part of wisdom.As long as a character is backing down to avoid a bloodbath, it makes me like them a great dealthan the idiots whose pride won t let them take an insult.Whatever the reason, Mercy s my kind of gal.I m sticking with the original 4 stars The only real problem I have with this one is the cover.In an embarrassing turn of events, my son picked it up to see what I was reading And then proceeded to laugh at the cheesy PNR ish cover.Kid Let me guess She hates her parents Me Why would you think that Kid She s coated in tattoos Probably did it to piss her parents off.Me Umlooks down a tiny tattoo on ankle Kid And she s Native American, obviously, because of the feather earring.Me Uh huh.Kid No offense, Mom, but she looks really slutty.Me Okwell, I m not really sure what they re trying to say with that cover.Kid I dosnortsPerverts, come read me Meblushessnatches book away Don t you have homework to do, or something The cover is shitPNR are all the sameMoon Called is still good.What could be better than a Haiku review Well, other than a proper review, I guessThe thing is, I did REALLY enjoy this book it has a lot to recommend itself to readers with Mercy is a nice character She s not a complete badass but she s not a push over either.There s a mystery though the mystery was interesting it all came up kind of lame in the end.The writing is pretty good and even though the world building is stock stan The cover is shitPNR are all the sameMoon Called is still good.What could be better than a Haiku review Well, other than a

either.There s a mystery though the mystery was interesting it all came up kind of lame in the end.The writing is pretty good and even though the world building is stock standard, it was a fun read.I guess the reason there isn t much to say is that these stories all tend to blend in together now.Mercy, Merit, Mac, Cat, Elena, Dru, Rose, Sunshine, KateHell, I had to look up half the names because I d forgotten them It kind of makes me sad because, really, none of the above heroines really stick out from each other They re all badass when they need to be, stubborn, strong, intelligent There s nothing really individual about them They all have some sort of super powers and attract the attention of some very nice literary eye candy.I m kind of waiting for a PNR character to stick out a bit Why is it that the men in this genre as so muchinteresting than the women Clayton s a crazy, antisocial werewolf I d never have to look up his name Barrons is mysterious and totally three different kinds of awesome Curran is violent and overbearing but has that whole bad tempered, territorial softie going for him while Ethan, with his shrivelled, black heart is fascinating because you slowly watch his humanity return Then there s Bones who is probably the most unique out of them all.Yet the men are all kind of the same too They re all violent At least it s an undercurrent of violence that hums beneath the surface They re all painfully dominant, macho and likely to step all over the heroine if she doesn t use her attitude to make them back off They all come to grudgingly respect their respective partners and are really passionate and demonstrative of their emotions.The most annoying trend of these books is that, in all likelihood, I will need to wait until book 4 before any horizontal, nekkid tangoing occurs So whilst I will, no doubt, read the rest of this series and love every minute of it, I can t help but bemoan the fact that it, so far, provides nothing new or interesting in a genre which proves that you literally can Write By Numbers.You will like this reviewI so know that you doHit the button, bitch image error If you don t, I ll send my pet T Rex after you It pains me to say this and I may lose my guy cred , but I m a big fan of the urban fantasy sub genre While I tend to leantowards male protagonists i.e Butcher sDresdan Filesand Green sNightsideseries , I still love me a good, tough female protagonist That being said, I was hesitant to pick this one up because of the abysmal Harlequin like cover In my opinion, many of the current crop of urban fantasy covers look like they belong in the romance section Why do I even know w It pains me to say this and I may lose my guy cred , but I m a big fan of the urban fantasy sub genre

that being said, I m glad I picked this one up I thought the main character of Moon Called , Mercedes Thompson, is one of therefreshing female characters I have come across in a long time Her banter with the other werewolves is priceless, and writing good dialogue has always been Patricia Briggs strong point.This is the story of werewolves, vampires and fae, and the struggle they find living in a modern world that has no place for them This is the story of a young coyote named Mercy who lives among a male dominated werewolf pack, which views all women as being weak Basically, this is all about struggle, loyalty, honor, friendship, love and fixing cars Moon Called is an inventive and fun read in a genre that is saturated with sameness Much better than any currentAnita Blakecatastrophe, I happily recommend this one I m still loving my favorite coyote shapeshifter Mercy I re read this on audio and it was so strange listening to Lorelei King as the narrator I was expecting Lula from Stephanie Plum to jump out at any moment But that is neither here nor there It was sweet going back and listening from the beginning And the Mercy and Adam thing Everything was just so weird but still loving it I missed Stefan and the scooby mobile images I always got I think there isof that in the next book though I m still loving my favorite coyote shapeshifter Mercy I re read this on audio and it was so strange listening to Lorelei King as the narrator I was expecting Lula from Stephanie Plum to jump out at any moment But that is neither here nor there It was sweet going back and listening from the beginning And the Mercy and Adam thing Everything was just so weird but still loving it I missed Stefan and the scooby mobile images I always got I think there isof that in the next book though I think I spelled his name wrong Anyway He s Mercy s vamp friends And there was Bran for the first time He s a mighty fine werewolf SHUT UP Now I get to read about Mercy and Adam falling in love all over again Mel
