'I didn't realize he was a werewolf at first. My nose isn't at its best when surrounded by axle grease and burnt oil ...' Mercedes Thompson runs a garage in the Tri-Cities. She's a mechanic, and a damn good one, who spends her spare time karate training and tinkering with a VW bus that happens to belong to a vampire. Her next-door neighbour is an alpha werewolf - literally, the leader of the pack. And Mercy herself is a shapeshifter, sister to coyotes. As such, she's tolerated by the 'wolves but definitely down the pecking order. As long as she keeps her eyes down and remembers her place, the pack will leave her in peace.

I enjoyed reading this book. The main character, Mercy, is quite likeable, is not too kick ass so as to lose plausibility, nor is she devoid of backbone. The werewolf characters were quite well done because while they were typically overbearing and controlling, it wasn't in a "Christian Grey" or "Edward Cullen" way; they were called on it, or it was explained as pack mentality. Mercy didn't capitulate in the face of the dominant and handsome men, like you so often see, which I hope continues into the series.
The world is well created, and you get a sense of the different supernatural tribes and their politics. You get a sense of how this can develop. The whole book is well written and of a professional standard. I've been reading a lot of self-published stuff so I really noticed the difference.
My one real complaint was that Adam didn't really react when his daughter was kidnapped. Given how a parent would feel, you would expect some reaction. None of them really reacted, to be honest, and while I get that they are tough supernatural types, I think you would've seen some angst, there.
To me, this is a good example of using stereotypical tropes to write a pretty reasonable story. It doesn't break any particular new ground or get you thinking "wow, blimey" at all, but its worth a read. Kind of reminds me of early Dresden Files, and (like Dresden Files did) I sense it will develop through the series. A nice, familiar, comfort blanket of a book.
Worth reading, pretty good, just don't expect fireworks.
