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… (més)

Though the revelations felt somewhat forced, I really enjoyed this! The tension is great, the characters are fun, and the world Briggs built is beautiful! ( )

The first time I picked up this book in 2009, I wasn’t expecting to love it so much. I grabbed it on a recommendation from an ex boyfriend, and wasn’t too sure that I would like it as much as he raved that I would.
I can say 3 years later that I love it now just as much as I did the first time I read it. Mercy is a great heroine. She goes against the grain of everything that you normally see with female lead characters and it really works in these books. She never really is the damsel in distress that you except her to be, even when she is hunting down murders and kidnappers.
I love how the supporting characters are introduced, and how they only add to my love of the series. Jesse is a great addition to the book even though she is human. The tension between Adam and Mercy is great and you can almost feel what she feels around him. ( )

Moon Called is the first book in the "Mercy Thompson" series. This is a series I have been itching to read for at least a decade. I tend to be very picky around UF books. To be honest, I never feel like they have enough romance, however, sometimes when I am in a certain mindset, I can really enjoy them. In this one, I did read Moon Called through audio which I think was a really smart decision. Especially with the romance just barely getting off the ground in this one. Maybe once the romance is more steady, I can switch to the ebook.

Moon Called was a really fascinating setup for the beginning of this series. I really enjoyed the way this story was written. It had some interesting intricate details that were blended into the story very well. I also really enjoyed Mercy's character. She was a surprise for me because she isn't your average UF heroine. She is a blue-collar heroine and isn't overpowering which makes her more relatable. What I tend to struggle with in UF is the too-strong heroines that can be cringe worthy. But Mercy was very likable in ways that I didn't expect her to be. I also was all over the fact that she
had a nature that isn't typical in UF. She isn't controlling but adaptable to whatever situation that she is placed in. We are also introduced to two men that she has a "bit" of interest in. Sam (who is the doctor and believes her to be his mate) and then we have the alpha of the pack "Adam" who was sexy as sin. I love this grump who is also a single dad. Their interactions were sexy but also witty and endearing.

It's not a five-star read (but it TAKES a lot for UF to get 5-star status for me) But it was a very solid read and I can't read the next book in the series. ( )

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? ( )
