Saturday Series Spotlight (4)

Today I'll be featuring Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series. I'll admit, this is one of those series that I started reading solely because of the covers. The tattoos on the cover model and how they changed on each cover, depending on what Mercy was dealing with, drew me in. I'm a sucker for cool tattoos. I'm glad these cover caught my eye because the books are amazing. Mercy is one of those characters that just can't help but find herself in the middle of all of the trouble. And I love that she's a mechanic! And I love that Stephan drives a Mystery Machine.

Reading Order:
Moon Called
Blood Bound
Iron Kisses
Bone Crossed
Silver Borne (02/02/10)

Here's a summary of the first book in the series, Moon Called:
Mercy Thompson's sexy neighbor is a werewolf and she's working on a VW bus owned by a vampire. But then, Mercy Thompson is not exactly normal herself--she's a shape-shifter.

Feel free to leave a comment about the series if you love it, any questions if you're interested in the series, or a link to your own series spotlight if you'd like to participate.


  1. I adore the Mercy books! Bone Crossed was the very first hardcover novel I've bought at full price, at time of release. I just couldn't wait, not after the way Iron Kissed ended.

    There are so many things to love about these books. The supporting characters are wonderful, and I was so glad to see Bran and Charles get more screen-time in the Alpha & Omega spinoffs.

  2. I'll second the adoration. Someone recommended them to be a few months ago. I went through the first three in a weekend.

    One of the things I really like about the Mercy books is that, as a walker, Mercy has one foot in and one foot out of what is a fairly rigid pack structure. That, to me, makes things really interesting.

  3. I LOVE that series, I can't wait for Silver Borne!

  4. I know! the covers or so awesome! I have 2 great 2 reading them soon.
