Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

Todays review is about 'Moon Called' by Patricia Briggs.

What is it about:

Mercy Thompson is a Volkswagen mechanic and a 'walker', which means she can turn herself into a coyote. Allthough she lives close to the leader of a werewolf pack and is friends with a fairy, she tries to stay out of supernatural politics. But then one day a young werewolf knock on her door for help and trouble begins...

Why do me and Voodoo Bride think it's good:

Moon Called is a suspenseful, action packed book. Briggs really read up on wolf behaviour which makes her werewolfs the best I've come across in supernatural stories sofar. Mercy is a strong character who doesn't need a man to save her without becoming an over the top indestructable bitch; she's actually human and therefor far from perfect.

Why should you read this book:

If you like werewolfs this is the book for you. Don't expect this book to be a supernatural romance or you'll be disappointed, there's some romance, but luckily Briggs chose to keep it in the background to give the story more room.

If you've read this book and liked it, there's more books in this series:
Blood Bound (with lots of vampires)
Iron Kissed (lots of fairy stuff)
Bone Crossed (vampires again)
And more to come...

Or you could try the Alpha and Omega series by Patricia Briggs.
A werewolf series which starts with the short story 'Alpha and Omega' which is in the anthology 'On the Prowl'. It's followed by 'Cry Wolf' and in august there will be a new book in this series called 'Hunting Grounds'.

I'm sorry I haven't been responding here Sullivan. I have another suggestion (if you don't mind) about this blog. Maybe you should combine your book reviews with film reviews (or even music reviews)...just a thought. As I said, I'm not BIG into books-bad reader Eve! But I'd be curious to know about films & music you like too. The chances of me picking up a book...no matter who says it's good is less likely than anything in my life right now.

And since you review BOOKS so well, I bet you could do film/music good. Again, just a suggestion because I've noticed you haven't posted in a while...
