Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

Moon Called is a great beginning to a new (to me) series that I am hooked on. Mercy is part fae (I think..I'm having a hard time remembering exactly) and can shapeshift into a coyote. She lives next door to Adam who is the head of his werewolf pack and is friends with a vampire. Mercy is drawn into Adam's troubles after his daughter is kidnapped. Ok, there is a brief summary to draw you guys let me tell you what I thought.
I LOVED the world that Briggs created with this 1st story. I just was drawn in and caught up within the book. I didn't want to put it down and I didn't as I finished it within two days. The book is filled with action and suspense and I didn't see the end coming at all. I'll be picking up the next book in this series VERY soon as I can't wait to see what happens next. Great book and thanks to whomever recommended it to me.
In other book related news, I got 2 new books in the mail. It felt like my birthday except my birthday has already come and gone. LOL! I received Forbidden Magic by Cheyenne McCray from Jackie over at Literary Escapism. I knew that it was coming but I didn't know about Written In Blood by Sheila Lowe. I'm excited to read both of them as they both look good but for different reasons. Lowe has another book out (the 1st in this series) that I'm thinking about grabbing from the library so that I can read her books in order. I'm anal that way. So watch out for reviews of these two soon. I finished The Translator yesterday as well so I'll be getting that review up asap. Everyone should read that book IMO. Enough jabbering already from me so get out and read Moon Called if you haven't :)
My Rating: 4.75 out of 5


  1. I LOVE this series, it is easily the best urban fantasy series out there at the moment. I hope you get around to the next installment soon. There is also Cry Wolf which is a spin off I have yet to read. I think the new characters are introducted in the anthology On The Prowl.

  2. I am definitely planning on reading the next book soon. I really liked this series and am glad to hear that you enjoyed it too!

  3. I have these in my TBR pile. I think I need to read them sooner than later because I'm really intrigued now.

  4. Strlady- I really liked this book so I would pick it up if I were you :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
