5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, moving, thrilling and fabulous!, 1 Sep 2008
This review is from: Iron Kissed (Mercy Thompson) (Mass Market Paperback)
I love this series for its fabulous and very clever plots as much as for the super-nature of the subject material. with this new instalment in the Mercy Thompson series, Patricia Briggs excells herself. This book is a must-read for any fan of the genre and for me this hits the hights of the first few Anita Blakes and at points, exceedes them.

The crime at the centre is well plotted and has enough clues to keep you guessing but not solving until close to the end; characters are believeable, complex and interesting and the finale....what can I say...previous reviews are right- make no mistake this is not easy reading. Violence on an exponential scale but told with such a human heart as to make you weep...and weep I did, for about the final 4 chapters...tears coursing down my face as the weight of choices made by Mercy and the attempts to come to terms with violence makes its presence felt.

I think this is where for me, this series is better than many others in the genre...Mercy may be supernatural but she is real, vulnerable and far from indestructable. This is, in my opinion, (withough giving too much away) in Ben's speech of the depiction of the clear body language of the animals the most understanding and compassionate view of exreme violence against women that I have ever read.

The other two books in the series, which must be read first, are fabulous reads of great quality. Iron Kissed is exceptional, through and through.
