My Review

I enjoyed this book even more during this re-read.  This is definitely one of my all time favorite series and I honestly believe that everyone who hasn't read these books yet should run to the bookstore right away and buy them up.  This is the fourth book in the Mercy Thompson series and it picks up right after the events of the previous book.  It is really important that this series be read in order since some of the events are carried over from the previous book.  I really had a lot of fun with this audiobook.

On major focus of this Adam and Mercy's relationship.  They both really do care for each other and want to make things work.  I like how carefully they are with each other.  Mercy is a mess after the horrible events of the previous book and Adam is there for her.  He really wants to help with her pain and if he could I am sure he would take it away.

The mystery in the story is centered around vampires.  I like the vampires in this world so that works out well for me.  The local vampires have painted crossed bones on the door at her garage and she decides it would be a good idea to get out of town for a bit.  Her friend from college has a little problem with a ghost so Mercy goes to help...and runs into more than she bargained for.  Stefan plays a large role in this book and really proved how much he cares for Mercy as well.

I love Lorelei King's narration of this series.  I am amazed by how well she voices all of these characters and keeps things consistent from book to book.  The emotional aspects of the story really come through during her narration.  I was able to listen to this book for hours at a time largely due to her wonderful delivery of this story.  Lorelei King is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators.

I would highly recommend this series to other.  This was my second time experiencing this book and I hope to read it again in the future.  It is really that good.

  13. I've only read the first book but really liked the world she set up and the various relationships, especially between Mercy and Adam. Curious to see where that goes! The vampires were a little freaky in the first one!
