Learned about her through a short story collection. Interesting dark series, like the main character: Mercy the skinwalking Mechanic is a trip. Try this series... I have, and I'm going for round two!

A rare novel with a fantastic female lead. I found her smart, brave, and with just the right amount of kindness. Each character was described and had a background to them, enhancing the strength of the story. The catagorization of fantasy ceratures and the explaination of things currently going on in the world Patricia Briggs created was fundemental. I couldn't get over the strength of Mercy Thompson, and wanted to scream at some of the characters when I felt like they underaprecciated her. This novel has won my excitment and dedication to the rest of the series.

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 world Briggs dragged me to was sweet, loving and addictive (this book started it all for me) i picked it up because it had a tough looking yet HOT! women on it back in high school now i can't wait for briggs's books to come out i'm hooked on the worlds Briggs brings to life

This has been floating around my “to read” list for at least a couple of years. Not sure what made me pick it up, but it’s a pretty enjoyable read. I always like starting a new paranormal author. Each world is just a shade different and I get a kick out of seeing how various authors handle the details. Even the “stock” characters like shapeshifters and vampires have their own peculiarities and unique back stories.

I tried to read this book, but I couldn't. I found it to be poorly written.

Mercy is the best! I love all of the Mercy novels. The first one is one of my favorites. I love how this supernatural world intertwines with the civilian world.

I tried to like this, I really did but it was just awful. Info dumps galore, flat characters, t was just boring. I couldn't get through the first chapter.

Mercy becomes involved in the story when a teenager walks into her garage looking for work. She gives him one -- warily, because her senses tell he's a werewolf, and he's not from the local clan. But all too soon, men and werewolves come looking for him, the local Alpha has been attacked in his own home, and a dead body has been left as a warning on Mercy's front porch. The action just heats up from there, as the local seethe of vampires and at least one local witch take an interest. Fortunately, Mercy is quick on her feet and has a keen, analytical mind when it comes to sorting out conspiracy theories.

The heroine is very likeable. Tough, Smart and Funny .
I particularly like that this heroine is a self confident business owner, who accepts what she is. She recognizes her limitations of size and strength (against both men and wolves), and accepts that it's okay to leave the fight to others every once in a while.
