Mercy Thompson: Homecoming by Patricia Briggs

Rated: Urban Fantasy
Buy Mercy Thompson: Homecominghere

Mercy Thompson is a walker, a magical being with the power to transform into a coyote. She lives on the fine line dividing the everyday world from a darker dimension, observing the supernatural community while standing apart.

When Mercy travels to the Tri-Cities of Washington for a job interview, she quickly finds herself smack-dab in the middle of a gang war between rival packs of werewolves. And as if fangs and fur weren’t bad enough, Mercy must deal with the scariest creature of all: her mother, who is convinced that Mercy is making a mess of her life and determined to set her daughter on the right course.

What I thought:

This was excellent! I haven't read a graphic novel before, but since I love the Mercy books so much, I gave this a try. It was nicely written and drawn.

There were a few things different from the vague background we got from Mercy, but in the end it was a great story of what her first days were like when trying to make a life for herself while trying to stay away from both her mother and the Marrok. I was a bit sad we didn't see Bran, since he is one of my all time favorite characters, but I do hope we get to see more of him when Briggs does more of these graphic novels for the Mercy world.

I gave it 5 stars!
