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

Standard Urban Fantasy with Female Lead
This is another crockpot urban fantasy with a female lead. The main difference here is decent writing and the fact that main character is a skin walker.
Unfortunately, there isn't much to distinguish this from other similar series yet.
Good start to a great series
It took me a while to get into this book, but I'm so glad I kept going with it. The pace picks up after the first few chapters after which it's a roller coaster of werewolves, witches and fun. The writing is great and the characters are instantly lovable. There is a small romance element that builds slowly throughout the series, never getting in the way of the larger stories. Briggs is one of my favorite two writers in this genre (the other being Ilona Andrews for her Kate Daniels series).
Great start to a new world! i love these types of series.... nothing like anita blake or cassandra but the overall idea is there just very dif...this has the shapeshifters as main characters....i love Mercy... her personality is awsome and i love the way she deals with all the problems....the tension with adam is nice to c too, i wish there were more sexual tension or scenes....
