Moon Called (Mercy Thompson #1) by Patricia Briggs

Moon Called (Mercedes Thompson, #1)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.

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!

Favorite Quotes:

“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.”


“I don't like it when I outweigh my men.”

Rating: Hand Over The Paycheck!


  1. I love the Mercy Thompson series. I stumbled across it at the book store. Then entire wall was just Patricia Briggs and so when I went home I checked to see if my library carried the books. They did, and the rest is history. I love the Alpha and Omega series too.

  2. I love Mercy & Adam! I love Samuel too! For a minute I wasn't sure who I wanted with her. But Adam is so HOT! And I love the way they fight about her cat. Too funny! It does have a lot of action and crazy things happening but then some good humor too. Mercy is definitely a bad ass kick butt character.

  3. So glad you enjoyed it! I really love the series and I hope it will be the same for you with the other books. great review!

  4. I Love this series. Mercy is one of the best heroines out there. It's hard to find things I dislike about any of Birggs books. Great review.
