4.0 out of 5 stars A little flawed but very enjoyable, 17 Jun 2009
This review is from: Moon Called: Mercy Thompson book 1 (Paperback)
This book isn't flawless, there are a lot of characters with not a lot of background on them, making it a little hard to keep track of them at times, and hard to care about some of them. The romance is minimal, and seems to be little more than an afterthought at times as well, creating little tension between the interested parties.

And yet, I love it. I love that Mercy isn't the toughest girl around, until the beginning of this book she's never killed, and certainly not deliberately. She cares a lot and she's pretty friendly, easy going and she's got a sense of humor. Her relationship with the alpha wolf, Adam, is pretty funny at times too. She clearly enjoys annoying him a little, but she also cares and knows how easy it would be for him to kill her and she respects him.

We get quite a bit of back story on Mercy as the book goes on, finding out about the oddness of her relationships with the other supernaturals around her, how she came to be living beside an alpha wolf and how she knows so much about wolf life when she's not one herself.

Mercy's problems start when a teenage wolf, not a member of the pack and newly turned, appears at her garage and asks for work. She quickly decides to do what she can to help him, before realising he's in much more trouble than she first thought. Trouble follows Mac and soon Adam finds himself and his (human) daughter well and truly caught in it, with Mercy doing everything she can to help them.

The main plot is tight and moves at a good pace. The interaction of werewolves, fae and vampires, along with of course Mercy, a coyote, gives you a lot of supernaturals to enjoy, all with their own talents and agendas. There is enough about Mercy, Adam and several other secondary characters that you start to get a good feel of them and those guys you do care about and it left me eager to read the next in the series to discover what happens next with them.
