Customer Rating: Summary: Must read series (4.5) Comment: This series is for Kim Harrison, Charlaine Harris, and early Anita Blake fans. This book is not the best I have ever read, but the series is up there. It includes werewolves, vampires, shapeshifters, faes, etc. The heroine of the series, Mercy, is a great character. The romance is intriguing, yet subtle. Customer Rating: Summary: I'm hooked on Mercy Comment: Love love these books. I was wondering how Patricia Briggs would go about Mercy making her decision on Samuel and Adam that I would be happy about, because I fell in love with both them, and it worked out perfectly! I knew she would make me feel good about it and she did!! February 2009 can not get here soon enough for me... Customer Rating: Summary: Written Well Comment: This series is entertaining and enjoyable to read. Mercy is an intellegent character and the story is one that makes you want to find out how the story evolves. Customer Rating: Summary: Ode to February 2009! Comment: Mrs. Briggs has done it again! It took a bit for the action to pick up in this the third installment of the Mercy Thompson series, but it was necessary to iron out Mercy, Adam,and Samuel's kinks. I hate Patricia Briggs. I'm lying, I love her. I pine for February 2009. I need my fix. I need it now. Customer Rating: Summary: I love Mercy Thompson Comment: The third book in the Mercy Thompson series is Dark. Though I knew the terrible price Mercy has to pay ahead of time (I looked it up), I was still on pins and needles from page one. Iron Kissed has delicious world building and great story telling, although it lacks the humor and light-hearted moments of the previous books. I especially like the world building about the fae that Ms. Briggs brings to life. Forget Tinkerbelle - Ms. Briggs has resurrected the original fairy tales in all their gruesome glory.
All is not right in fairyland. Mercy Thompson is called in to use her superhuman nose to find a killer as grisly murders rock the fae reservation in Eastern Washington. The lords of the fae will do anything and sacrifice anyone to keep the humans from finding out. Humans are already wary of the fae, and no one wants to give fodder to the fae hate groups. But when Mercy's old mentor Zee, who taught her everything she knows about cars and sold her the garage, is arrested for the murders, Mercy refuses to let an innocent man die. She hunts for the real killer even as the fae issue warrants for her death and fae-hate groups plot nefarious schemes around her. Will her loyalty cost her her life? By the skin of her teeth, Mercy tackles her most dangerous mystery yet. But the price is high.
Iron Kissed is great and I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT ONE. What - 2009??? Are you kidding me? I am not a patient person. At least Cry Wolf comes out in August. It is the sequel to the novella in On the Prowl and is about Charles, Samuel's brother and the Marrok's second son.
If you have yet to read any of the Mercy Thompson series, don't start in the middle. I highly recommend them in order:
Book 1: Moon Called
Book 2: Blood Bound
Book 3: Iron Kissed
