    1. The cover is shitPNR are all the sameMoon Called is still good.What could be better than a Haiku review?Well, other than a proper review, I guessThe thing is, I did REALLY enjoy this book - it has a lot to recommend itself to readers with. Mercy is a nice character. She's not a complete badass but she's not a push over either.There's a mystery - though the mystery was interesting it all came up kind of lame in the end.The writing is pretty good and even though the world building is stock-standar [...]


    2. It pains me to say this (and I may lose my "guy" cred), but I'm a big fan of the urban-fantasy sub-genre. While I tend to lean more towards male protagonists (i.e. Butcher'sDresdan Filesand Green'sNightsideseries), I still love me a good, tough female protagonist. That being said, I was hesitant to pick this one up because of the abysmal Harlequin like cover. In my opinion, many of the current crop of urban-fantasy covers look like they belong in the romance section. Why do I even know what Harl [...]


    3. I'm still loving my favorite coyote shapeshifter! Mercy I re-read this on audio and it was so strange listening to Lorelei King as the narrator. I was expecting Lula from Stephanie Plum to jump out at any moment! 😂But that is neither here nor there. It was sweet going back and listening from the beginning. And the Mercy and Adam thing. Everything was just so weird but still loving it. I missed Stefan and the scooby mobile images I always got. I think there is more of that in the next book tho [...]


    4. What a great addition to the urban fantasy genre. Mercy is a likeable and engaging protagonist. She doesn't come off as invincible and inhuman in her buttkicking abilities, yet at the same time, she is comfortable in her own skin and can hold her own.The universe is interesting, much like the world we live in, save the addition of preternatural creatues such as werewolves, vampires, fae, and coyote shifters like Mercy, which seem quite rare.I enjoyed the description of the pack dynamics and Merc [...]


    5. After all the reviews I had read about this book, I though this series would be over the top. Everybody was giving 5 stars to this book,and for that very same reason I had really high expectations for it. Maybe that was the problemIt wasn't a bad read, just a VERY slow one. The first half of the book was REALLY boring and slow-paced, it only described the heroine and her life. Around page 100 comes this hot-sexy-alpha wolf who makes you think that the book is finally going to turn out more inter [...]


    6. ► BR with my MacHalo Freaks starting Nov 15, 2015.Note to self: you should review books right after reading them. When you don't you always end up lowering your original rating (view spoiler)[Oh well (hide spoiler)].I should be bummed about this. I really should. And I should be wondering why most people in the universe LOVE this book. Well, most people except my dear daughter Liz, that is. But she takes after her amazing father (aka me), meaning she has pretty spectacular book taste ← this [...]


    7. Seems I'm on an Urban Fantasy kick right now! I've had this book on my shelf forever because a few people recommended it, but every time I picked it up to read, I saw the cover art of Mercy with her bare mid-drift and cleavage and though "ugh" another one of those heroines that are bad-ass and probably stubborn with a chip on her shoulder, etc (I love strong female protagonists, but some are really annoying when they refuse all help). But I was looking at the book for an article I was writing ab [...]


    8. After attempting to read "Moon Called" at least 5 times I am finally giving up. There is absolutely no chance I will ever read the sequels, so why bother?I am a fan of urban fantasy and this novel is very highly rated by readers, so it is surprising that I disliked it so much. My expectations for urban fantasy are not huge: well developed lore, engaging paranormal mystery and one or two sexy supernatural hunks to swoon over. I don't care how formulaic it is, as long as it is written well. "Moon [...]


    9. I was super happy to discover a new PNR series and after reading Patricia Briggs 1st book in her Mercy Thompson series….I was beyond happy…excited more like it!!!!Mercy Thompson – a natural born coyote shape shifter, auto mechanic and owner of a garage, sensible, together, strong and independent, lives in the Tri-Cities are of Washington, amidst a world of humans and supernaturals – vampires, walkers, werewolves, fey, witches…The storyline revolves around the murder of a young boy, emp [...]


    10. It's now been a decade since Moon Called was published, and it remains a solid, reliable series in the urban fantasy genre. My first time reading it, I pretty much loved it. It has steady action, an intriguing female lead and decent world-building. It also has a gentle romantic build, a relief in a genre that is frequently focused paranormal sexy-times. If it is a little predictable, it's with the assurance that the experience will be satisfying and familiar, the literary equivalent of homemade [...]


    11. Buddy Read (or re-read, in my case) with Kat, Krishna, Sara, and Sesana.Disclaimer: I may have bullied them into reading thisAll of these guys gave it a 'gentle' 3 stars. Even Sesana (view spoiler)[,who probably would have rated it lower, had I not threatened to go after her beloved Les Misérables, (hide spoiler)] was kind. Thank you!So, with none of my pals really loving this one, coupled with the fact that I read it 5 years ago, I was fully prepared to change my rating from the original 4 sta [...]


    12. mercy, mercyushingly dull exposition of everything you already knew about werewolves and et cetera, served over the course of about two hundred and fifty pages of soul-withering conversation, with the requisite love triangle and weapon-listing and speyshul-snowflake-ing and seventy quintillion characters and a plot like a doily and fuck my life if i weren't so desperate to get out of my own head i would have set this on fire and then myself when the token gay human was not physically capable of [...]


    13. I like you Mercy Thompson.I like you because you’re tough but not invincible.I like you because you’re brave but not stupid.I like you because you are a caring person but nobody’s fool.I like you because you make mistakes but you don’t place the blame elsewhere.I like you because you’re smart but not a show-off.I like you because you stand on your own among much more powerful creatures than you but you know your limits.I like you because you don’t give a damn about what others think [...]


    14. I've tried to read this two times now. I give up. I just don't like it. I'm sure it's just me. Tons of people love this series. It's one of the most famous and popular UFs out there. I just can't get into it. DNF 41%.I don't like how the female werewolves and skinwalkers are treated. It's like the males are still in the 1800s. No.Her "adoptive" pack kicked her out at 16 because the females were jealous and one of the alphas (who was 60 or 70 in werewolf years) wanted to mate her so she could hav [...]


    15. Re-Read March 19th 2017. Still awesome!Moon Called is the first book in the Mercy Thompson Urban Fantasy series, and it was a strong start. It was fun, fast paced, with strong characters and an engrossing plot. I love my female protags to have some spunk and be able to kick a little ass and Mercy Thompson ticks all those boxes and more!Mercy Thompson is a “walker” and can shapeshift into a coyote. Mercy isn’t a werewolf but she is very close to them after being raised by a powerful pack. A [...]


    16. January 2018 Re-read. Buddy read with Sarah.January 2017 re-read: Mercy is one of my favorite characters to read about. This world is fascinating, and the characters (and their interactions) are fantastic.15 January 2016: $1.99 on KindleDecember 2015 re-read: Buddy read with SarahThis series is so comfortable. Like coming home. I love the world. I love the wolves - that they aren't "nice" all the time, they are sometimes at the whim of the animal that shares their body. But most of all, I love M [...]


    17. Full review, first posted at fantasyliterature:Mercy Thompson is an anomaly: a female automobile mechanic who owns her own shop, half Native American, and ― in a world with werewolves, vampires, fae and other supernatural beings ― she is one of a very few “walkers,” or skinwalkers, able to easily shapeshift into a coyote at will, without regard to phases of the moon. When Mercy surprised her human mother by turning into a coyote pup when she was three months old, her mother, not knowing [...]


    18. "MS. THOMPSON, it said in heavy block letters, PLEASE KEEP YOUR FELINE OFF MY PROPERTY. IF I SEE IT AGAIN, I WILL EAT IT." Lately I have been reading just pretty much young adult books but I thought I give adult urban fantasy a go and I’m so glad I did. Moon Called was action packed, witty, suspenseful and addictive. When I finished it I wanted to run straight down to the bookstore and get the next one but unfortunately I had spent my weekly book budget. The plot is fast moving although there [...]


    19. WARNING! This review includes fanart and random images (done by me) ^.^V Welcome, to the Urban Fantasy genre!The place where magic and legends blend seamlessly with our reality. The place where each one of us has to decideCause we all know sometimes humanity isn't entertaining enough.---------------------------------------The supernatural communities have lived hidden in our world for generations until, finally, the fae decided to come out (or at least the weaker and prettier ones). As humanity [...]


    20. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.I love it when I can read a book for a second time and enjoy even more than the first time. There are a few book worlds that I hate to leave and Mercy's world is one of them. When I finished reading Fire Touched recently, I wanted more Mercy so I decided it was time to listen to some of the audiobooks from this series that have been sitting in my audible account for a couple of years. I was surprised by how much more I liked it this time arou [...]


    21. Buddy read with some friends at Buddies Books and BaublesMild spoiler incoming If your neighbour secretly had a picture of you in his bedroom, wouldn't you at least think "What the hell" for a mere second, no matter the circumstances?Mercy doesn't."He turned back to me. ‘But you have his scent all over your van, and he has a picture of you in his bedroom.’ Samuel gave me a sharp look. ‘In his bedroom?’ It was news to me, too. But I was more worried about Adam and Jesse than a picture. [...]


    22. I should have liked this. I really wanted to like this. After all, it promises so many of the things I love about the Urban Fantasy genre: kick-ass heroine, supernatural creatures, murder mystery and hot other-wordly men. I'm actually not too demanding of the genre, Halfway to the Grave is one example of UF that is very light with little plot development and limited emphasis on the supernatural mystery element and I really enjoyed it. If the author focuses on just one of the factors I mentioned [...]


    23. Review from first time i read it, 04/25/11 to 04/27/11:Mercy was awesome loved this book Mercy was really funnyMercy was really fast (but not easy, takes a whole flipping book for a guy to get a kiss)Mercy was pretty smart, for a girl ;)Mercy wasn't completely helpless, she uh might rip your throat out with her teeth and watch you bleed to death (just sayin')Mercy never even mentions her man eating vagina once in this whole bookMercy also didn't shower once in this whole book and even she mentio [...]


    24. What do you get when you have a heroine who can change into a coyote in a matter of seconds add in two sexy male werewolves, and a kidnapping plot that will turn heads? You will get this book “Moon Called” by Patricia Briggs which stars Mercy Thompson, your not so average heroine! If I get paid a dime every time I see a heroine become a shape shifter, I would be a millionaire by now! Full of action, mystery and a lust for the supernatural, “Moon Called” is one novel that paranormal and f [...]


    25. 4.5 STARS!!!The biggest reason why I don’t read many UF books is because I can never find a heroine who’s POV doesn’t piss me off. Cat from Night Huntress pissed me off at first because of her prejudices. Merit from the Chicagoland Vampires doesn’t stand out from her supporting cast because they all act the same. I can go on, but instead I’ll just say this: I LOVE MERCY THOMPSON!!!Mercy is my new favourite heroine! She’s a walker, which allows her to shift into a coyote. With this ab [...]


    26. It's a BYOB Buddy Reading event starting 01/08/17 with the lovely ladies over at BB&B. (the things I do for Sarah)Rounding this up to 3 stars!*First Read 01/17/16-01/20/16- 2.5 Stars*


    27. 3.5 stars.

    28. Move on. Nothing new to see here.That's my biggest complaint about Moon Called. For someone new to the fantasy/supernatural world, it's probably entertaining enough but it definitely has the smack of "been there, done that" for the seasoned genre reader. I would have loved it 10 to 15 years ago.Moon Called does have a few things going for it, especially the fact that too often books like this are just an excuse to have "things that go bump in the night" bump uglies in the middle of the night (*c [...]


    29. Buddy read with Vishous and Glam. Moon Called is not a bad start of a series, but it is a far cry from epicness of Darkfever or Magic Bites. Luckily, I was already warned that this series gets better with second, even more so with third book, so I will definitely continue with it.
