Recently finished these four books (as in this week) and was surprised at how much I enjoyed them. The books feature Mercy Thompson, a shape shifter with a magnet for trouble. She was raised by a werewolf pack but never really fit in. She left them in her teens and went to tackle life on her own as a tomboyish VW mechanic only to find that the werewolfs are still near as are the fae and vampires… The characters are great, Mercy is a strong, dynamic character and you can’t help but want her to win, in everything.
The first book didn’t take long to pull me in. Things go from one thing to the next so fast that I found it difficult to put down as there were barely any ‘downtime’ for me to lose interest for long enough to put them down. (Thus all four books tackled this week, I even stayed up too late a few nights which is unlike me.)
Tonight I am starting another series, the Alpha and Omega series so I will see if these ‘new’ characters are as intriguing and enjoyable as the Mercy Thompson series, which by the way has another book, number five, due out in about a month and the sixth coming in 2011.
