Moon Called

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 neighbor 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.


This is a kick butt start to an awesome series! Patricia Briggs has a fast and furious writing style. Moon Called is a shorter book than some might be used to but there isn’t a word wasted and a not a moment I didn’t enjoy.

There is a lot of urban fantasy out there these days and I believe this by far is some of the best executed beginnings of a series I’ve read to date. The details for a rich world of ‘Other’ within our own mundane world are delivered so well that they aren’t overwhelming. There is nothing worse than when an author does an information dump on the reader – and while Briggs gives you a lot of info it never feels as if it’s too much.

Mercy is a great lead, a character that you can really get behind and get attached to. She’s tuff but vulnerable and sassy as hell. I highly recommend this series to any urban fantasy fans that have a taste for werewolves, shapeshifters, vampires and few.

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!

    oh MAN she got a new cover artist! This is SO beautiful! I love LOVE the series, have been waiting on the next one. She along with about five other authors are ones that I constantly for so when I caught her name in my inbox I quickly opened. I thought wait, that is not a new book but … new cover? ANYWAY… dang it..its the pretty hard cover, I hate when they do that, makes me want to buy the hard cover! I had to go look at her page to see, since I know the sixth the new Alpha and Omega book came out. BUT I want a new Mercy Thompson book. I Love the fact she woks on cars, for some reason that and her place of residence, well until… umm nevermind! HEHEHE YAAAAA! Any anthology she is is grew too. I found her because of the anthology she is in with Simon Greene. If you have not read the Nightside series, that is something you should. OK I have gushed all over your comment sream to much already.. CAIO!

    I am really enjoying this series. It’s nice to get a little bit of a twist on the were angle with Mercy being a coyote. She’s tuff, tattooed and a mechanic, what’s not to like? 😉
