THE FIRST MERCY THOMPSON NOVEL! Moon Called is the novel that introduced Patricia Briggs's Mercy Thompson to the world and launched a #1 bestselling phenomenon...  Mercy Thompson is a shapeshifter, and while she was raised by werewolves, she can never be one of them, especially after the pack ran her off for having a forbidden love affair. So she's turned her talent for fixing cars into a business and now runs a one-woman mechanic shop in the Tri-Cities area of Washington State. But Mercy's two worlds are colliding. A half-starved teenage boy arrives at her shop looking for work, only to reveal that he's a newly changed werewolf--on the run and desperately trying to control his animal instincts. Mercy asks her neighbor Adam Hauptman, the Alpha of the local werewolf pack, for assistance.  But Mercy's act of kindness has unexpected consequences that leave her no choice but to seek help from those she once considered family--the werewolves who abandoned her... "In the increasingly crowded field of kick-ass supernatural heroines, Mercy stands out as one of the best."--Locus… (mais)

I had multiple problems with this book but altogether it wasn't that bad. I will at least give the second book a try to see if I continue with the series or not. ( )

Fun shape-shifter book. Why are urban fantasy covers so terrible? ( )
  mmcrawford | Dec 5, 2023 |
Other than the atrocious, misleading, off-the-mark cover, this was a surprisingly good book. Well written, kept my interest, fun, thought about it when not reading ... Surely nothing mind-bending or intellectual, but a good, entertaining read. I'd recommend. ( )

Yessssssssss, I remember why I tagged this series as one of my favourites. Love it!

Worldbuilding:
All scenes and environments were clear well detailed and you could tell that the author really did pay attention to getting all the info across (about the world Mercy lives in) in a very smooth and unhurried way.

Character development:
All the characters at this point are still pretty mysterious :)
We know a fair bit about Mercy and her family. She isn't a damsel in distress (by far) but she knows when she can't do it on her own and needs help. It might sting a little, but she asks for it. I really like, I mean, it makes her feel real and believable. Add to that a good dose of humour and some strong values and voila, you've got to love Mercy!
Adam, the local Alpha (actually one of the strongest in NA) wants you to think he's all badass and such, but his humour and little gestures make him more than just another Alpha male. But if he gets to goad Mercy, just so much more fun for him. We don't know all that much about him or any of the werewolves really, but the few things we did pick up on, lets us know he has dealt with a lot in his past, Jesse being one of the bright spots in it.
There are so many characters that I want to know more about, so I'm pretty lucky this is a long series ;) (goooooooo Warren!!!)

Pacing and flow:
It was a smooth and enjoyable read, I had a hard time putting it down.
The story had a good balance between all the action and conversation. If you'd think that the first book of this series was just setting the stage and not that much else, you'd quickly find out that is soooo not the case. It's more like: throwing you in and have fun ;)

The book:
The book itself was well written with no (noticeable) errors. There is so sex described (if that is important to you).
The book has 289 pages, spread over 16 chapters.

All in all:
As I'm reading (and partially re-reading) this series together with my Goodreads group SOS (Serious Overload of Series), I kinda have to wait for the next book... I'm not sure if I'm that strong, to be honest :D
But yeah, this book reminded me why I love this series so much, even from the first instalment you get a feeling for the depth the characters have (even the support cast) and Mercy is just someone you can only root for. ( )

edit: This probably deserves more stars but I read it early on when I got into UF. I started with the most popular and well-liked books and had no comparison to the vast sea of mediocrity down below yet. ( )
