MOON CALLED by Patricia Briggs
About MOON CALLED (taken from goodreads.com)
Mercedes “Mercy” Thompson is a talented Volkswagen mechanic living in the Tri-Cities area of Washington. She also happens to be a walker, a magical being with the power to shift into a coyote at will. Mercy’s next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she’s fixing a bus for a vampire. This is the world of Mercy Thompson, one that looks a lot like ours but is populated by those things that go bump in the night. And Mercy’s connection to those things is about to get her into some serious hot water.
Review of MOON CALLED
I absolutely love this book to death. The world that the author created was really cool. Werewolves, vampires and faeries all blending in with the humans. It’s a really cool aspect. I know a lot of authors have done that before but there’s something really unique about this book. The writing was really great too which is a BIG must for me. I don’t want to feel like I’m reading a book, I want to feel like I’m right there with the characters. That’s exactly how this book makes me feel. Also I love that this is an adult book without being too formal and boring.
I love the main character, Mercy. She’s one of my favorite female heroines of all time. I really like how she’s not too badass but she is really smart about it. She’s more human than other book characters, more realistic. I really like how comfortable she is with herself. She’s a really great role model. She’s not a werewolf and doesn’t quite fit into the pack but she’s ok with that. I like all the relationships she has too. The leader of all the werewolves is like a father figure to her, then there’s Samuel and Adam her love triangle, and she’s friends with vampires and faeries. Adam and Samuel are great characters too. Not the typical I want the girl, no I want the girl kind of guys. Samuel is strong but gentle while Adam is purely strong since he’s the pack Alpha. I love them both but I’m on team Adam.
I also really like how the author uses magic in her book. She explains the pack dynamics really well. I love werewolves and I found this book did a really good job of explaining them. This book was a really great start to the series hopefully the rest goes along as well.
5 out of 5.
