“Despite the ridiculous cover, I really enjoyed this book. I loved Mercy - she was tough but not ridiculously so. She still had some vulnerability about her. The secondary characters were also developed and really rounded out the story.
The plot revolves around the kidnapping of the local Alpha's daughter and the book actually sticks to this track rather than becoming secondary to the protagonist's love life as in so many other books. I liked that everything did not revolve around sex like in so many paranormal books recently. There are love interests but she doesn't jump into bed with the first (or or any) guy who is good-looking.
We get a lot of info about paranormal creatures (werewolf pack behavior, vampire seethes, fae, etc) that helps to move along the plot but I suspect it will also come into play throughout the story.
The one thing I did not really like was the resolution to the mystery. The reasoning seemed weak and a little convoluted to me.
Overall very enjoyable and I look forward to the second in the series. ”
“This book is cheesy, supernatural fiction. Rollicking fun. Unlike some other novels that could be named, this books presents vampires and werewolves as actually scary. The writing is not stellar but it's passable. Not great but an easy read for vacation or something.”Bethany B wrote this review Friday, December 14, 2012.

“A smart, tough heroine who isn't full of herself and takes risks even when her own a** is in danger, non-stop action and sexy werewolves...what's not to love?! Mercy is a breath of fresh air in a genre that oftentimes portrays "perfect heroines."”Lori A wrote this review Tuesday, December 11, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“The book felt very long to me even though I've read books longer (page wise) than it. I think for me, it's just giving me a taste of the series. It wasn't great but it wasn't something to pass up either. I'm looking forward to see the direction the rest of the series takes me.”Marcella-Louise wrote this review Sunday, December 9, 2012.

“This is my first Patricia Briggs book. I did like the book but I wanted just a tad bit more action. Since it's my first werewolf based novel, I can appreciate the history the author incorporated. I'm hoping the next novels go a little bit deeper.”Nikki76 wrote this review Saturday, November 24, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“ A fun and not too heavy story about a mechanic who can shift between human and coyote and her relationship with a local werewolf pack. Mercy gets caught up in the doings of some rogue wolves who are attacking others and murdering where she can. Funny in parts and entertaining all around.”nuclearblonde wrote this review Saturday, November 17, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
