Mercy Thompson Mechanic, Shapeshifter, FighterCar mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg Mercy

depths of the Columbia River Something deadly is coming, facts are thin on the ground and Mercy feels ill at ease However, her father s people may know To have any hope of surviving, Mercy and her mate, the Alpha werewolf Adam, will need all the resources the shifters can offer Or death will be the least of their worries Patricia Briggs has this amazing ability to keep this series feeling fresh Unlike other longer series for example, the Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries the plot lines never feel contrived or forced River Marked is the epitome of Brigg s ability to tell a story that feels so real, despite the fantasy Whenis revealed about Mercy s background it seems authentic, not like Sookie s fairyblood, which seemed pulled out of Harris ass The new supernaturals fall flawlessly into their place in Brig Patricia Briggs has this amazing ability to keep this series feeling fresh Unlike other longer series for example, the Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries the plot lines never feel contrived or forced River Marked is the epitome of Brigg s ability to tell a story that feels so real, despite the fantasy Whenis revealed about Mercy s background it seems authentic, not like Sookie s fairyblood, which seemed pulled out of Harris ass The new supernaturals fall flawlessly into their place in Brigg s world because they flow from her great grasp of real myths and legends If that weren t enough to make these books truly special, the subplots actually advance in this series shocking I know There isn t the constant will they won t they The continued growth and development of Mercy and Adam s relationship is one of the things that keeps bringing me back to these novels And although there is always conflict or a challenge in the novels it seems to evolve naturally from the world and the character s position in that world edit 22 Dec 2011 No Too much Nevermind YES Finally a great book Finally a use for the mysterious walking stick Oh such a wonderful day What a wonderful life Love

so hot P.P.S River Marked, book 6 in the Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series, takes place mostly during Mercy s honeymoon, which starts off wonderfully I Favorite Quote Adam didn t approve of Walmart.Note This is a spoiler free review I had not read any blurbs or spoilers for this book before I started it and let me tell you how surprised I was at the first few chapters in this one Yes, it tells the big surprise on the inside of the jacket cover but since I am posting this review before release date, I don t feel comfortable talking about it So I m not going to talk a lot about the plot But I will tell you this.I read this series for two r Favorite Quote Adam didn t approve of Walmart.Note This is a spoiler free review I had not read any blurbs or spoilers for this book before I started it and let me tell you how surprised I was at the first few chapters in this one Yes, it tells the big surprise on the inside of the jacket cover but since I am posting this review before release date, I don t feel comfortable talking about it So I m not going to talk a lot about the plot But I will tell you this.I read this series for two reasons One, I adore Mercy and Adam Both separate and together Mercy is such a strong, level headed heroine who can claim her independence while surrounded by pack, vampires etc, yet she is so polite and warm And Adam well he fulfills all my dirty needs when it comes to an alpha male In River Marked we get a lot of Adam and Mercy And by that I mean, almost the entire book is the two of them together I was shocked, and I loved every second of it We get a very intimate glimpse into their relationship We see another side of Adam, and wow What a sweetie I love him evenNo ma am, he drawled mildly, though I could see a dimple peeping out I loved his dimple and I loved it evenwhen he dropped into the accent of his youth I especially loved the warm strength of him against me I was so easy.We also learn a lot about what Mercy is Her heritage is presented in much detail At times I found these parts to be very slow There is a point towards the middle that the pacing slows down so much I got worried for the rest of the book But then something big happens and the rest finished quite nicely.The second reason I read this series is for the amazing intricacies of pack life Patricia Briggs has created I love her wolves, and their politics How they live so closely as pack, yet are always on the verge of violence I adore their dynamics and how Mercy has come to fit in But we don t get that in this book Adam and Mercy are removed from pack or as much as they can be in this one I miss that I know I sound greedy because we do get awesome Adam and Mercy stuff, but I will be looking forward getting back to pack life hopefully in the next one.Overall I enjoyed this book Like I said, we see a side of Adam that made me smile Don t worry, he totally loses it a few times and his alpha, growly, wolf takes over But it is a very romantic, quieter side we see.He smiled at me Go to sleep I waited three seconds Are we there yet His smile widened, and the last of the usual tension melted from his face For a smile like that I d.do anything.The mystery and conflict are interwoven into Mercy s ancestry and I think this look at who Mercy is and where she comes from really makes you understand Mercy better.This book is definitely one of theromance oriented books in the series While I don t think a sex scene in every book is necessary for this series, I do think this book really could have benefited from at least one You can think me shallow for saying that but once you read this book you might understand why I say that.Patricia Briggs continues to write one of the best written urban fantasy series out there If you don t read this series, pick up Moon Called immediately You will not be disappointed.Rating B
