If you are a fan of the new phenomenon of paranormal romance then this is one for you and if you want to give the genre a go then try this. This is the first in a new series from Patricia Briggs with Mercedes Thompson as the heroine, who, in between working as a car mechanic, finds herself mixed up with vampires and werewolves, not something she is too bothered about as she is a shapeshifter herself. A good fun read.

The Mercedes Thompson series is as follows:-
1. Moon Called
2. Blood Bound
3. Iron Kissed

4. Bone Crossed

Moon Called by Patricia Briggs

'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.

Hardly a normal situation, but then, Mercy Thompson is not exactly normal herself. . . and her connection to the world of things that go bump in the night is about to get her into a whole lot of trouble.


'The best new urban fantasy series I've read in years' Kelley Armstrong

'Plenty of twists and turns . . . Kept me entertained from its deceptively innocent beginning to its can't-put-it-down end' Kim Harrison, bestselling author of Dead Witch Walking

'Terrific!' Jennifer Rardin, 'I enjoyed every minute of it. I love Mercy and can't wait for her to kick some more ass' Lilith Saintcrow
