[ Read Online Moon Called Ó dressmaking PDF ] by Patricia Briggs ↠´ I was super happy to discover a new PNR series and after reading Patricia Briggs 1st book in her Mercy Thompson series.
I was beyond happy excited like it Mercy Thompson a natural born coyote shape shifter, auto mechanic and owner of a garage, sensible, together, strong and independent, lives in the Tri Cities are of Washington, amidst a world of humans and supernaturals vampires, walkers, werewolves, fey, witches.
The storyline revolves around the murder of a young boy, employed by Mercy, who tells her, before he s killed that he had been turned unwillingly and that this a secret party carrying out experiments on werewolves When Adam Hauptman her next door neighbor and leader of the local wolf pack is atta After all the reviews I had read about this book, I though this series would be over the top Everybody was giving 5 stars to this book, and for that very same reason I had high expectations for it Maybe that was the problemIt wasn t a bad read, just a VERY slow one The first half of the book was REALLY boring and slow paced, it only described the heroine and her life Around page 100 comes this hot sexy alpha wolf who makes you think that the book is finally going to turn out interesting but then things get messed up when her previous lover appears.
I was waiting for something to happen between Mercy and one of the two wolves, but it never did The whole book was about problems with the Alpha s pack The book has some very good action, bu Mercedes Thompson, Aka Mercy, 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 What a great addition to the urban fantasy genre Mercy is a likeable and engaging protagonist She doesn t come off as invincible and inhuman in her buttkicking abilities, yet at the same time, she is comfortable in her own skin and can hold her own.
The universe is interesting, much like the world we live in, save the addition of preternatural creatues such as werewolves, vampires, fae, and coyote shifters like Mercy, which seem quite rare.
I enjoyed the description of the pack dynamics and Mercy doesn t quite fit into the werewolf packs, yet at the same time is an integral part of them She has an interesting relationship with the Marrok, Bran, who is the acknowleged leader of all the werewolves in North America, and somewhat like a father figure to Dance when the moon sings, and don t cry about troubles that haven t yet come This review is so long overdue, as I read this book twice within a year and am still just now getting around to typing up my thoughts Don t let that make you think for a moment, though, that it s because I don t have anything to say about Moon Called, because believe you me, I do Some back story here paranormal fantasy was one of my favorite genres as a teen, but when I hit adulthood, it became popular for people to make fun of the genre thanks, Twilight , and I m willing to admit that peer pressure shoved me right out of my love for books like this Now, at 26, I m so glad I ve learned to stop giving a crap about what other people think of my taste BR with my MacHalo Freaks starting Nov 15, 2015 Note to self you should review books right after reading them When you don t you always end up lowering your original rating view spoiler Oh well hide spoiler After attempting to read Moon Called at least 5 times I am finally giving up There is absolutely no chance I will ever read the sequels, so why bother I am a fan of urban fantasy and this novel is very highly rated by readers, so it is surprising that I disliked it so much My expectations for urban fantasy are not huge well developed lore, engaging paranormal mystery and one or two sexy supernatural hunks to swoon over I don t care how formulaic it is, as long as it is written well Moon Called managed to disappoint me on all fronts I found Mercy s world uninteresting, messy in its blend of weres, vamps, fae, and witchcraft, its introduction awkward, the entire concept of weres being immortal and people becoming young again after turning was contrived, and constant dominant submissive explanations were extremely boring The mystery took way too much time to
Seems I m on an Urban Fantasy kick right now I ve had this book on my shelf forever because a few people recommended it, but every time I picked it up to read, I saw the cover art of Mercy with her bare mid drift and cleavage and though ugh another one of those heroines that are bad ass and probably stubborn with a chip on her shoulder, etc I love strong female protagonists, but some are really annoying when they refuse all help But I was looking at the book for an article I was writing about fantasy novels and read a short except on the first page and was intrigued.
I m so glad I gave this book a chance I was hooked almost right away I loved that she s a mechanic and I also appreciated the realistic details When she shoots a gun it s LOUD and she loses her hearing for a while that s what happens when you don t wear ear protection She gets hurt like a broken arm when she s It pains me to say this and I may lose my guy cred , but I m a big fan of the urban fantasy sub genre While I tend to lean towards male protagonists i.
e Butcher sDresdan Filesand Green sNightsideseries , I still love me a good, tough female protagonist That being said, I was hesitant to pick this one up because of the abysmal Harlequin like cover In my opinion, many of the current crop of urban fantasy covers look like they belong in the romance section Why do I even know what Harlequin is Anyway, that being said, I m glad I picked this one up I thought the main character of Moon Called , Mercedes Thompson, is one of the refreshing female characters I have come across in a long time Her banter with the other werewolves is priceless, and writing good dialogue has always been Patricia Briggs strong point.
